First of all, I missed y'all! But I'm back now, to raise hell and-- oh yeah, I've got some names of people I talked to on my cruise ship! The stewards on the ship (who were all extremely cool, btw, already knew what their names meant and enjoyed being asked about their names) were hired from all over the world, and a lot of the names Mike already had on the site -- like Dragan, Rajiv, Ivo, etc. But here are four I copied down which weren't already on the site:
EMINE (f) "trustworthy" (Turkish)
GEDE (m) "first born" (Balinese)
KUMKITTI (f) "good word" (Thai)
PREECHA (m) "ability" (Thai)
Oh, and if you're kinda curious to see what Nanaea 'n' Mate look like in DisneyWorld, one of our vacation pics is already posted on my lifemate's website: http://johnpeel.home.pipeline.com/Vacation.html
Sorry the pic takes so long to upload, but John says he's still learning this web stuff. :) Anyway, that's me (attempting to put a choke-hold on John) with Mickey-as-Sorcerer's-Apprentice in the background looking down on us from atop Spaceship Earth at EPCOT.
Other cool stuff... I saw a *beautiful* portrait of my favorite Disney character -- Chernabog -- in one of the ship's classy dining rooms (The Animator's Palate). Also, the cruise ship took us to the mega-huge Atlantis resort/aquarium/casino on Paradise Island in Nassau, where I played four quarters in a slot machine and won back FIVE quarters! Woo-hoo! I quit after that coz, see, I fiqured I did okay coming out of that place 25 percent richer. :)
Gotta go pick up my dawgs from the boarding kennel now. Oh, and I was really touched by all the cool postings asking when I'd be back. Thanks, gang! :) :) :) I missed y'all lots, too! I would've posted a cyber greeting to you from the Bahamas in the cruise ship's cyber-bar, 'cept they were charging 75 cents per minute to use their 'puters! An' dat's CRAAAAAZY, mon! That would've blown all my casino winnings in less than a MINUTE!
