Hee hee -- that's why whenever possible, I go to a public restroom onboard and use the holders they have in the stalls.

I brought Twinings tea bags from the ship home from our Baltic cruise and passed them off as "souvenirs from London" to friends.

That is too funny! I don't sail until December 2014 for my wedding/family cruise and I am on every site imaginable to learn everything about the cruise since I am a newbie. Everyone thinks I have gone off my rocker I have OCD and let me tell you in has kicked in!

I was the same way before my May cruise wedding. To fill the void from wedding planning I'm already planning my August 2014 cruise.

You can guess what happens next. When one can't stop oneself the agent comes back on the phone. So my confession is continuing the conversation during this act of nature.

Lol. I waited of course to flush...

After lurking around this thread for weeks I finally decided it was time to post. I look forward to joining the Verandah Club (have only ever had inside rooms before). On a non DCL cruise a very long time ago BC (before children) we mooned the port of Stockholm. It just seemed like the thing to do. And finally I too question Max's parentage. Really how did Goofy find any kind of woman that would breed with him, be it cow, mule, dog or moose (it could happen) Just saying

Ok I'll admit that I love this topic and I never thought I would have anything to contribute till now.....
I thought I would share here because dis boarders would not judge me.
Ok here goes.....this is so difficult!!!!
I'm a 34 years old, male, and enjoy exercising (at this particular time enjoy running about 4 miles a day), shaved head, like to think in fairly good shape, run on the road by our house no gym, 5'6ish, 175lbs, street bike, mustang mach 1, typical male gear head (trying to paint a visual image).
Confession; When I run I enjoy listening to radio Disney
Wow that felt good!!!!
It all started when I had a talk with my son about the old saying "you are what you eat" or in our case-what you listen to. I heard some "distasteful music" and had the talk, what you take in is what you will portray. Sat back and though for a bit after that talk that some of the happiest times in our family lives involved Disney music. So I figured I would let that spoil over in my exercising.
Oh and since I'm spilling, I shed a few tears stepping on the magic for the first time. It was a big accomplishment for our family to be able to get to that point in our lives....

I hope my wife doesn't read this!!!!

U are my kinda dude! My honey is a Disney buff too thankfully (and we both were crazy sci find star trek n doc who fans before we met!) But I love love love Disney music. It is a very happy frame of mind. I don't run to it (because the mornings are busy enuf with bonehead people leaving for work driving like idiots in a resident and because I enjoy running with my two four leg wonders (12 pound terrier is a runners dream) and so I need to hear traffic coming and like the birds chirping etc. Stupid shin splints have me backed off to 13 min miles! (Oh well, anything is better than nothing.) However I find that I cannot clean the house without blasting Pandora Disney music!!! That is a must. If its going to be a long day catching up And up and down the stairs with laundry etc, then I will strap on my phone and ear buds so it moves with me.

My honey is funny. When he wants to perk me up, he says "brush and brush and brush my hair".

It is mental motivation I think. Extra kudos when a park song comes on!!!!!! Sometimes its Canada, sometimes its the Pirates ride, sometimes its Tiki Room! That really gets me excited like being there in addition to the soundtrack classics. Additional bursts of energy come from "hakuna matata" (just found a shirt at Walmart with simba and that on it that is my size! Not junior, yay!) And I also bop a bunch to Bear Necessities!

I was quite happy it was playing on the cruise in the background all the time.

Of course, my ringtone is Part of Your World. but that is just obvious!

Oh one more thing. On our 12 hr drives down, it makes for really fun driving music to Orlando! My honey puts on the Pandora for me while I drive and he gets out the laptop and watches whatever movies he wants with headphones and every now n then he chimes in with the song. Happy happy times and a much happier drive!

Great confession muscle dude!

My wife suffered from splints also, I have never experienced them thankfully.We have two boxer's, but running with them is a challenge to say the least! I'm averaging 8:15-8:30 ish miles... your right about the music, it just puts you in a happy place! Thanks for the kind words!

Regarding the shin splints/times, last year best was my two mile track in 19:08. This years was 19:28. This jogging shuffle is annoying me but I got a massage on Thurs and she worked on where the tendon attaches and I have developed these "ridges" and got it worked over fairly good. They have since improved more. I'm also changing days up to include my favorite weight lifting squats and lunges and step box workout videos so that it strengthens the whole system instead of just the lower leg or quad and tendon. I've also improved my hydration before working out first thing in the morning and upped my supplements with magnesium and calcium. I have them 95% kicked right now! Here's hoping I can still run CC 5k in the spring with my Twinkie so we can run it together.

Also good for you for working hard to take your family! I feel that way anytime I step on Disney property (its a tough call as to which makes me gasp more, my "home" the Tower or that endless symbol golf ball. I think prob the Spaceship earth because it opened when we were born, its probably more "Disneyworld" to our fam then Cinderella's castle..)
