This has not been my week for posting, because I am distracted.

We're off on a cruise to Bermuda on Saturday, and I am excited.  It's my 40th birthday present - my birthday isn't until December,  but this is the last month the cruises run, so we're going.

Two days (well, one and two-thirds days) in Bermuda, two days at sea, and all the buffet we can eat. 

One of my other choices was Vegas, but I thought cruise + gambling + food + sightseeing seemed even more awesome.  Plus Karaoke.  I always try to get Bob to do his (extremely awesome) Elvis impression, because it drives the women wild, and is highly entertaining.  I suck at Karaoke, but I'm liable to get up and do it anyway, because it's not about being perfect, it's about causing extreme aural pain to everyone who has to listen because they're waiting for their turn having fun.

How exciting! Paul and I have enough points on our visa to take a 7 day cruise, but we are holding out to see how much the England trip is going to cost before we decide what to do with the points (free plain tickets to England might be more prudent then going on a frivolous cruise!) But I am dieing to go on one, we always try to cram so much into our holidays that we never relax, a cruise seems like a great way to be forced into hanging out and just enjoying each other!

This will be my third cruise, and the days at sea are actually really lovely - there's lots to do on the ship, or you can just relax with each other (we like to relax with each other at the Roulette table *grin*).

There are also three-day cruises, and the kind where the ship doesn't actually hit any port, just sails around in the ocean, then comes back, which are sometimes cheaper. It is fun, and I do recommend it. :)

We can't decide whether or not to do a cruise with just Paul and I, or go on a Disney cruise so that the kids can come, but spend time in the kids club. We always feel bad leaving them because they are so fun to go on trips with, but sometimes having no kids around can be more desirable - but then I feel bad for thinking that being sans kids is more desirable. If I can ever get past my crippling fear that I will do the wrong thing, I am sure we will have a lovely cruise!

Sounds like fun! I hope you both have a wonderful time!

I did karaoke for a while to try to get over my fear of looking stupid. It actually worked pretty well, though since I didn't want to actually torture the audience, I stuck to songs that don't require any vocal talent (for example, most Ramones songs could be sung by a coma patient).

Oh do have yourself a grand time! Cruises can be quite the adventure. :)

Cruising rocks! In fact my Dad and Step-mom are leaving the same day for their cruise. Can't remember which cruise line though.

I know you'll have a great time!

Enjoy!! Hope the weather cooperates, but I'm thinking you'll just avoid the tail end of Ida...

Hope you both have a great time. Sad that you didn't pick Las Vegas - because _then_ you could have come to _my_ fabulous 40th birthday party tomorrow night (yes, on Friday the 13th on purpose!). I am having a Victorian funeral for my youth....much sombre silliness is expected...I got a fully articulated skeleton candy mold and am making my coffin cake in the morning! My birthday isn't until the end of the month, but I simply couldn't pass up Friday the 13th!

Have some extra fun on your trip for me!

Oooo - a little exclamation point abuse there! Sorry!!! (at least it wasn't all caps!!!)

Funeral birthday parties are such fun, as I can wear hats with black veils.

I have had so much fun planning this party - even if the party is lame-ish - it will have been worth it. I sent out Victorian style funeral cards via pdf as invites. I know of at least two other people besides myself that are wearing veils. Everyone is getting calla lily corsages as 'favors' as well as teeny coffins full of candy. I made two sprays of funeral flowers for decorations with lilies and black roses, as well as pansies and will be adding rosemary just before we leave. We had a much bigger shebang planned (there was talk of building me a coffin so people could have their pictures taken with the 'nearly departed', but we just recently had an SCA death in our Kingdom, so we we scaled it back quite a bit, we have many people that are still in real mourning. The saddest thing is that she would have gotten such a kick out of this party. . .

Enjoy! Kass & I are spending Christmas and New Year's at sea, but we're heading south, not east. As we find the entire Holiday season appalling, the best bet is to be Away the entire time.

One day, we'll get to Bermuda. I've wanted to go there for ages.

Tell YourBob to enjoy his karaoke. Tell him to sing "Blue Christmas" for me. ;-)
