Humuhumu,
Your place knocks me out! It's a good thing I don't live there...I'd never leave the house (but that might be a good thing).

Cheers,
Shipwreck Joey

I get asked about the status of the Humuhumu Room all the time, and now I finally have some news to report after my recent visit to Seattle:

(To get new folks up to speed: I used to be married, we split amicably about a year and a half ago. I had a tiki bar you can read about in earlier posts in this thread.)

When divying up our possessions, the Humuhumu Room was the only thing that the ex-Mr. Humuhumu & I just couldn't really deal with--the room had always been mine more than his and there was no disputing that it would go to me in the settlement, but neither of us could deal with the prospect of actually dismantling it. My ex has graciously allowed me to keep it all there in the house we used to share until I was settled & able to deal with relocating the contents to my new home here in Los Angeles. A few small items came with me to Los Angeles (a few books & CDs, mostly), but it has pretty much been totally intact.

While in Seattle, I visited my ex, our kitties, and the Humuhumu Room. In my absence, my ex has grown to really love the Humuhumu Room, and he's been actively using it. This makes me terrifically happy. Looking around the room, I realized that the individual components are all either replaceable, or not practical to dismantle and move.

So I am happy to report: The Humuhumu Room lives on. It is my gift to my ex, for having been a wonderful part of my life for seven years. I took a few items (my Gecko plaque, my black velvet painting, my Russian nesting tiki dolls, a kukui nut lei, and the Humuhumu Room menu). The rest will continue to be exactly as it has been. Now that my ex has some blank spaces on the walls to fill, I told him I could connect him with some swell artists to help him out.

The downside of this: my ex is not social. (Hence, the "ex" part of his moniker.) This little tiki paradise will still not likely ever be seen by tikiphile eyes, and dogbytes will likely remain the only TCer to have ever visited the room. My ex isn't exactly a candidate to go whole-hog into tikidom, and never even lurks around here.

It feels good to have this chapter closed, and not have it nagging at the back of my mind any longer. And now, I'm free to start daydreaming about the new digs....

Humuhumu,

the spirit of the Humuhumu Room lives on wherever your travels take you ~ it's nice to know all the hard work you and your dad put into the house will stay intact and will be enjoyed.

much luv

You are such a sweetheart Humu to do that and at least you will have made him a lil bit of a tiki nut, I can imagine it must be hard some what, but hey, TIME TO GO SHOPPING!

So it's true what they say;
"Behind every successful tiki, there is a Humuhumu.

HumuHumu,I have to say that what put your room over the top was the MENU! How fun is that!?I absolutely adore menus,have hundreds of them,and that,to me,is what made your room so nifty!Any other folks out there with personalized tiki menus for their home bars?If not,give some thought about creating one.I'd love to see them!

Somewhere around here, there's a thread with people's home bar menus, but for the life of me I can't find it using the Search tool! Maybe someone more clever can find it and post a link? It was a great thread, and deserves to be revived.
