Thought for the day: #2, more kisses.

Very early Sunday morning, R and I were talking about kissing. She said so many people were eager to get past the kissing part, and move on, that she felt that they didn't pay sufficient attention to kissing as an act in and of itself. She's a big fan.

She's right, of course. Kissing is great fun, and we both think it doesn't get enough attention for itself, as opposed to a part of something else.

We spent a lot of time comparing notes about kissing styles, and the forcefulness and wetness of various kissers we both had kissed. There are, of course, variations in what people like, and we agreed on some things, and agreed to disagree on others.

It all made me realize I hadn't done enough intensive kissing over the last year, and that I should do something about that. Practice is both fun and educational!

So, I guess that's my resolution for this year, and going forward: more kissing!

Estonian?

I had an odd conversation with the customer service rep at my phonecard company, www.dialaroundtheworld.com*. The CSR asked me if I were originally from Europe, and when I asked why he said my last name was a Baltic name.

"Lithuanian? Latvian? Estonian?" I asked.
"Estonian," he said. "I'm from Estonia, that's why I ask."

His English was quite good but he did have a faint accent which I would have identified as Russian had he not volunteered that he was Estonian.

I didn't have the heart to tell him it was translated from 馬, so after deciding not to start a conversation about how nice I thought Tallinn was, I thanked him for the information and wished him a nice day.
