Yup! Oahu, Not Honolulu. I live Aiea and work at Fort Shafter, which is in Honolulu. Grace lives on the Big Island in Kona. I believe she teaches school there.

Wodin speaks the truth. And big island is way better! Except we have no stores or restaurants and lots of VOG. But still better!

I used to live on Kapiolani right on the canal. Also lived out in Pearl City back in the 80's. Wished I still did!

It's really called "big island"? Someone must have been rather lacking in imagination when they named that one!

I used to work at Pohakuloa, on the Saddle Road, and lived (during the work week) in Hilo. I commuted to Oahu on weekends. That got way too expensive, and I had to take a job on Oahu.

The Big Island is still my favorite Island!

Is a picture of my Kitty Girl, Imo. She used to commute with me. It got so she would willingly get into the carrier box so she could go home to Hilo. One of our other cats used to beat her up all the time.

Imo means "twinkle, as in twinkleing of the eye" in Hawaiian.

The island's name is Hawai'i, as is the State, so "natives" call it The Big Island.

And when used in that context Big Island is capitalized.

Sometimes we jokingly call the Continental US the BIG Big Island, but usually we just say the mainland.

Actually, no one outside the state of Hawai'i seems to know there is an island called Hawai'i in addition to the entire island chain being named Hawai'i (ok, so I'm exaggerating...), so whenever I tell people I live *on* Hawai'i (the key word being "on" which denotes living on a specific island, whereas living *in* Hawai'i could be anywhere on the island chain), they still say "oh, which island?" to which I can answer "Hawai'i" and then they see "but what island?" and we go on and on. You can see how it turns into a "who's on second" type of conversation. sometimes I do engage in it, just for fun :P

So, I live on Hawai'i, in Hawai'i, on the biggest island, which does *not* contain Honolulu (which is not actually pronounced Hah-nah-loo-loo in the Hawaiian language, it is hoe-no-loo-loo); that's O'ahu.

Beer, anyone?

Seems to me there are inhabitants of a small Island in the North Atlantic who call the Atlantic Ocean "The Pond"

Q: So if a teacher worked on Maui, where would they send her check?

A: Hawai'i

Q: No wonder no one teaches on Maui!
