Give Celtic a howdy for me, and please encourage him to try out my suggestion for learning 'Merrikun language and culture: Sitcoms. "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Two and a Half Men".
Or, he could watch some reality TV and see how we really interact with each other. Although I think he got quite a bit of that last night.
Seriously, it was great to finally meet Mark and we hope you take us up on our invitation to visit anytime. Thanks again for the hospitality!
Neat group of people from all over. Finally got to meet Avengers and his friend Gayla... Avishai, his mom and brother, Lost Reality and the Ex-JW meetup Oregon folks. Good to see Euph and Piph, Doc and Kitties, Kate and Craig, Odrade, Blueyes, Seattleniceguy and Sherry again.
The train ride home wasn't as pleasant as the ride down. The train was much more crowded and we ended up having to sit with this guy who ate crackers out of a Crystal Light canister...loudly, with his mouth open and lip smackin' and stuff. I told Steve I greatly admired his self control. I figured the crackers were going to fly at any moment.
