John Mayer is Having a "Totally Awesome" Time in Hawaii
Here’s a pic of John Mayer “having a totally awesome time in Hawaii.” (He’s performing in Hong Kong today at a Coach event.)

“I’ve met, both physically and digitally, some of the brightest people through blogging here, and I’ll continue to try and challenge myself to engage in as much of the world around me as I can. And if my posts get co-opted, reconstituted, re-printed with added editorial from others, so be it.
