Love the kids!!!!!! You must take wonderful care of them; they look happy and healthy, too bad you can't take them on the cruise with you.

You are ssssoooooo right about the Disney cruise versus the other lines, we don't talk about RCL as much the Disney cruise...they must sprinkle pixie dust in their alcoholic beverages!!!!!

And as for the disboards....so glad I have discovered them, and now I must live vicariously through everyone else until we can scrape up enough money to go on the new ships.

Have a great long weekend!!!

Oh, and as for the fish extender gifts....think little....think flat....save space

Exactly. Just don't forget to take seasickness tablets in case. I'm hearing that the 5 day going on right now has had some pretty rough seas.

We though about trying to pass one of them off as a assistance dog, but that just wouldn't work. The chihuahua doesn't handle strangers too well, and the IG is just not...well...let's just say that we think he's a natural blonde.

No offense to blondes. I'm just stereotyping.

Let me guess...the one with the princesses on it? I figured you might like that one. Don't forget that I've got blanks for most of those that you can modify to say whatever you want.

Okay, I've updated my picture bank and have come up with some more:

The cast from Life Stink Season 1. On the left are my brother Wil and his partner Steve. They will be making a guest appearance later in this report. In the middle are my parents, who may play a supporting role. We're still in contract negotiations with them. This picture was taken as we were leaving to board the cruise. Notice that my wife has her cellphone stuck to her ear. She had to stay in communication with the office right up until the last possible minute.


If you only knew the trouble I went through to get this picture. I had to ask a cast member to move not once, not twice, but 3 times. I didn't even plan to have the Wonder and Flying Dutchman in the background. I just got lucky that way.


My mother and wife at Animator's Palate:


April 2007: (Our 10th wedding anniversary)

Getting ready for Victoria and Albert's. Highly recommended. I think we're still paying it off though. Never knew there was a restaurant that offered in house financing before.


Tea at the Grand Floridian. Erica - have you gotten Lionel there yet?


Sharing a "Kitchen Sink" at Beaches "n" Cream. That thing made me sick. But if it's good enough for Samantha Brown, it's good enough for me.


Just a few weeks earlier when I spilled water on my laptop. We took this as an omen of things to come.

Last set of pictures, I promise.

For those of you who read Season 2, here's the remainder of the cast. (her parents)


My wife has such a rough life. A glass of wine...a rainforest room...


6 AM sunrise at Castaway Cay


From the observation tower at the other end of Castaway Cay:


Okay, this was actually in the cast member area of Serenity Bay. We saw it from about 30 feet away and just couldn't resist taking a closer look. I'd say it was about 2 feet across.


The entrance to the EPCOT food and wine festival. For those of you who didn't read Season 2, we were at EPCOT the day before the Festival was supposed to begin. They did a soft opening that day. Really great way to finish up the trip.


Now we'll forget the past and return to Season 3...

Episode 6: Goin' shoppin'

Well, It's going full scale now. Ebay and Paypal are the two most visited websites at our house. Either my wife or I one spend every night at a store or online looking for something for the cruise. An order of bath gel from H2O Plus (I love that stuff.) a new shirt from a men's store, even dramamine from Target gives us the warm fuzzies that we're getting closer. I also found a sweet deal on cologne at TJ Maxx. (Speaking of which, I am a huge fan of Paris Hilton's colognes. Right now I'm using the one she has called "Heir." I don't know how a trainwreck like that is getting ahold of such nice scents but she's doing one thing right. Now back to our regularly programming...just had to get a little more product placement in the report.)

We've started the packing list and pulling things aside. Pretty much, we can tell you what we're going to wear to every dinner, excursion, wine tasting, etc... My wife was kind enough to make sure our outfits complemented each other nicely without looking too corny (What is this, a high school prom?) Now it's just a matter of packing those items, or going to pick up new stuff where needed. One whole section of the closet has been set aside as cruise items. All the suitcases are out, too. And we still have 1 1/2 months to go. In addition, I'm buying new underwear for every day of this trip. My mom will be so proud to hear that.

My wife has decided that she wants to get dressed up in full pirate regalia for the deck party. Ain't happening. I'll wear a pirate t-shirt:

and an earring/eyepatch we got awhile back, but full pirate regalia? No way. That's just not me. I'm much too formal and educated of a guy to do that sort of thing.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to stare longingly at some cartoon princesses.

WHAT do you mean that you are starting to pack already. That means that I am WAY behind!!!

So glad about the underware thing, we were ALL wondering about that!!

Love the t-shirt, but my "formal and highly educated guy" will be wearing full attire. (His idea!!)

Ok, now I am going to pull the suitcases out right NOW!!

www.bigdogs.com

In the top right hand corner under "Find It" do a search for Caribbean. 4 shirts should pop up.

C'mon now! I'm counting down to the last day of work which is only 43 days away. By the time I get all my clothes sorted out, send to the dry cleaners what I need, get it back, pack everything and then try to figure out how to get all of our stuff in 4 suitcases, meaning I'll have to repack it, those 43 days will be gone.

You need to get moving!

I have some instructions for you, Drea, and Erica. I want the three of you to meet up on one of the at sea days. Order 3 Bahama Mamas. Since Drea apparently has a thing for umbrellas, I want her to go get 3 umbrellas and place one in each drink. Then, I want the 3 of you to drink those Bahama Mama's after giving a toast dedicating the drinks to me.

I don't ask much.
