Oh man, did it rain.
Today is Tuesday, I think, although I've adapted to this whole "no schedule" thing so beautifully that it's frightening. We awoke to rain - late, too, as I agreed (foolishly) to go to Karaoke with The Hubster last night after dinner. His "just one song" turned into 3, and if you know anything about Karaoke, you KNOW that takes all night. My worried that I wouldn't be able to sleep with the amazing snoring machine were for naught, as the earplugs I brought worked beautifully.
But when we woke, it was raining, with brief crashes of thunder and occasional lightning. After a quick breakfast, we went to the running track and ran in the wind. Why? Cuz I'm stupid. One side of the track the wind was behind you, and it increased your speed like nothing I've ever seen. I've got pictures of me almost vertical in the wind - I'll download them in the next day or so and share.
There was no laying out by the pool to be had, but I did get a temporary tattoo, again I'll share the pic later. We should be in port tomorrow. I did find out that I can't drink as much as I once could - oh, the headache I've had today! I wish that all of you could be here, as I think we all deserve drinks, warm chocolate cake, temperatures over 70 and poolside wait service.
Tonight is formal night, and I'm almost over my alloted 10 minutes for the day. One hour is $24, and I've split it over the six days. I'm not crazy, as some of you have commented, but addicted. Seriously addicted to the Internet. And my coffee - on a ship like this, I wasn't able to get coffee as good as I do every morning.
I wish I could take all of you with me - what a great time that would be! Which bloggers would you take on a cruise with you, if you could? Or, really not just bloggers, but anyone?
I was asked about the passport - yes, it did come, but we had to call a CONGRESSMAN to get it, and it was FedEx'ed to us the NEXT day. Aggravation, thy name is mine. But, we got it and that's all that counts, right?
