Back on Dry Land...

I'm back in LA, and on dry land, thank goodness.  My final night on the boat left me feeling unwell, and even though it's been a couple of days since our leaving the cruise, my legs still feel the sensation of swaying.  My head is trying to tell the rest of me that we're on terra firma again, but I guess my body just needs a few days to hear the truth.

Anyway, I wish you all a very Happy New Year!  Stay safe, everyone... we don't need any more emergency room stories.

Cruisin', Part 2

Thus far the cruise has been a mix of great and not-so-great... the cruise itself has been wonderful, and we have been treated wonderfully by the Filipino members of its crew, from our stateroom steward to the wait staff to the guys at room service.  We've been greeted by ear-to-ear smiles and warmth that can only be found on our islands, and it's been a fantastic holiday to be surrounded by it.

The not-so-great part has been the less than calm seas when the ship does set sail, which makes dinnertime an interesting adventure.  Beyond that, we've been having a good time.

Right now we're docked in Kauai, so the internet is a bit more stable.  I should be heading to bed soon though... just because Nicole gets up relatively early, and I'd better be ready for her when she does.

Our family is on vacation, and I'm blogging from a cruise ship sailing on the Pacific!  I just thought to wish everyone here a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

No, I won't be making any resolutions this year... I mean, I don't have any bad habits to kick... I'd like to think that whatever negative addictions I may have had in the past have been gotten rid of long enough ago.  However, I do have my positive addictions... my work and my family, both of which have been blessing me a millionfold since their coming into my life.  Add to that the people I've been fortunate and honored enough to work with, my fans who are loyal, kind and incredible, and my friends both in and out of the bizness that have kept me laughing, grounded and happy.

Enjoy your holiday season, however you celebrate it.  Let's all have a fantastic 2008!
