Leaving on a jet plane...  
The plans are all official now.  Hubbie and I will be having fun in the sun this June in St. Maarten.  WOO HOO!!!!!  I stopped there for a few hours on a cruise a few years back and always wanted to see more of the tiny island.  I'm not lying when I say that it was the bluest water I've ever seen and I've hit spots all over the caribbean.  And the beaches there are rated the best in the world.  Time to bust out the bikini O_O  I'm gonna be working my ass of at the gym for the next moth.  

And for any anime fans out there, I just watched the fansub first episode of a new series called Jyu Oh Sei, which translates as "King of Beasts."  It's put out by Bones, the same studio that gave us Wolf's Rain.  In fact, the style of animation is very similar to WR.  Not sure what the whole plotline is, but it opens on a space colony.  We're introduced to two teenage twin boys, Thor and Rai.  They return to the family quarters to find their parents murdered supposedly by the same guards that are supposed to protect them.  They are drugged, placed into a lifepod and sent to a prison planet where the plants are the dominate species.  Thor and Rai have no idea why any of this happened (and neither do we)  They run into a group of outcasts who explain the only way off the planet is to beat the leaders of each of the tribes (there are 4) and become the Jyu Oh Sei and only then will they be able to leave the planet.  This is kind of a lame synopsis, but I was very intrigued based on this one episode.  It's kinda like that Ray Liotta movie No Escape.  The relationship between the twins is interesting.  Thor is the stronger, more capable twin, while Rai is weaker and often a hindrance.  I'm going out on a limb here *snort* and guess that Thor will eventually gain that title.  It could also be my ecchi mind, but there may have some shonen ai overtones.  Anyway, check it out if your interested.

It does sound interesting, especially if only one is allowed off the planet. If your guess is that Thor becomes Jyu Oh Sei, my guess is that he then tells Rai to kill him, making Rai the reigning Jyu Oh Sei.

I hope it's not too complicated a plot. Some of these get so detailed without ever really needing to, lol.

Sounds like you'll have a wonderful June! So jealous! ;)

That's if both twins survive. Bones puts out rather heavy and somewhat depressing stories so I wouldn't be surprised if poor Rai meets with a heroic, yet unfortunate end....that's if the cliffy from the first ep doesn't end badly *cough* I just hope it doesn't have a WTF? ending like Wolf's Rain did. I don't think the plot will get out of hand, but who knows? It's got me interested, so I'll keep watching.

Hey... Sorry I missed this post. I was hiding for a few days. Feeling a bit better now.
So. St. Maarten?! Sounds wonderful! There is nothing like spending time in the islands to truly relax. ^^

Oh absolutely. There's nothing more relaxing in this world then a white sandy beach and a margarita.

Glad to hear you're feeling better *hugs*
