My company Christmas Party
Twas the night of December sixteenth and in Mo`ili`ili
PacRimmers gathered at Willows and started acting silly.
Keito-chan in a Santa’s cap was ready for bed,
With dreams of joining PacRim dancing ‘round his head.
And his mommy and daddy having a delicious buffet,
Talked and laughed with the PacRim family on this happy day.
We played this game, where we had to guess
“Who was who”-I knew mine, but not the rest.
There were unusual things about everyone, and we had to figure out
What each PacRimmer’s secret was all about-
Who’s a Menudo fan, and who won a Japanese track race, Joy, Akiko and I tied for first place!
Then we heard Dave, the President, ask for our attention,
He had a few awards to give, and special people to mention.
Sharolyn, Lori Joy and Akiko were called to receive
Orator Awards, because they were “the best,” I believe!
They got great prizes they really deserved, but oh dear,
The rest of us will just have to work harder next year!
We all had nestled back into our comfortable table chatter,
When all of a sudden there came a big clatter.
Malia and John brought out this huge bag of toys,
Kazoos, bells, and all sorts of things that make lots of noise!
We made our outside-what was the fuss?
Our own Waikiki Trolley was waiting for us!
So with our bells and whistles in tow,
We headed out for the Honolulu Christmas Lights show!
We sang, laughed, and Elise shouted “Hey!”
Each time her cue came in Rob’s Jingle Bells kazoo medley.
We oohed and aahed, and enjoyed the twinkling sights,
Took many pictures, and simply savored the beautiful night

|Loco Girl’s Profile(ロコ・ガールのプロフィール）
Born in Hilo, I grew up going fishing with Dad, shopping with Mom, and trying to be a good “big sister” to a younger sister and brother. A Waiakea High School and the University of Hawaii at Manoa alumni, I taught English in Japan for two years on the JET Program, and am now employed at PacRim Marketing Group, Inc. I love doing a lot of things-shopping, reading, lettering, making jewelry & crafts, watching Friends-and that’s just the start of my list! I like being busy, and am active with the JET Alumni Association (JETAA) and the Honolulu Junior Japanese Chamber of Commerce (HJJCC.) My family and friends are, of course, very important to me, and are why I live a very typical, happy, local-style life in Hawaii and will never leave!
