I AM Back...

Hello Pals,

I am so happy to be back. MY (human's) laptop had to go to the PC doctor because of some bug that found its way through and when it came back, all passwords were changed, so I couldn't log on. After several months of trying different passwords I did it... I cracked it! So my friends, I am back online for good :)

Geeze, where do I start? I have nearly seven months of catching up to do and I have no clue from where to begin! I guess I could start with my holiday. The humans took us on a looooong trip, touring part of Europe. We went to Italy, Slovenia, Austria & Germany. The excuse was that the Bug had to visit some shows, but of course we all know why we went. We went so that I could increase the historic value of cities like Florence and Venice. Having someone like myself visit such places definitely increases the ratings of such cities. I mean seriously, if 'Curtis' visited it, then it must be worth visiting, even for the fact that one went to a place where 'Curtis has already been'! I'm sure Lonely Planet will feature this in one of their future books or newsletter, in fact I think they should put a new section in their newsletters 'Cities Visited By Curtis', I could consider writing a few articles for them if they asked nicely.

Anyway, back to my trip. I visited famous cities and famous monuments, I even traveled on a Gondola in Venice. We swam in lakes and glaciers, climbed mountains, crossed borders and played in the white stuff... Now that was really cool. I had never seen it before, its like a white flooring but when you step on it, you go down right into it, and its cold, really cold but super fun to play in. Even the Bug loved it! It's the funniest type of flooring though... pee makes a yellow hole in it! I'm trying to remember its name... oh yes... I got it... SNOW!

Next we visited Germany and went up a very steep hill to visit a castle. Do you know what? I am even famous in China. We met a lot of Chinese tourists who kept stopping my humans and asking if they could take pictures with us. So mad at the human, she said for them (the Chinese) taking a picture with the bug and I is equivalent to my human taking a picture with a pig or a turkey... food on a leash... Can you believe she would actually say something like that? My reply to that would be, it's equivalent to her taking a picture with Richard Gere or George Clooney on a leash.... Celebrity on a leash...!

We also got to camp in some really nice places, and it sure was fun running around off leash for kilometers and kilometers. The human says they were meters, I reckon they were kilometers though. I've never seen so many open spaces. The Bug did well at her shows too. She won everything and made my human super proud of her! I have to say she has what it takes to make it. She has 2 Championship titles and is very close to getting another 3, so she must be pretty :) The human says that, that time of her life will soon arrive and she will be having little bugs of her own. I have yet to decide if it's something I should be happy about or not. Maybe if she has bugs of her own, she will stop bugging me and leave me alone, but there is also the possibility that they all gang up against me and the rest of the world and devise a diabolic plan to take over the world.... Grrrr... I don't want to think about the end of the world....

Geeze guys I'm already exhausted just recalling the holiday, so I'll stop here for now. I hope you enjoyed reading, I promise to be back VERY soon. In the mean time, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Love Curtis
