I had the strangest dream last night. Let me preface by saying that our cruise is still 6 months away, and on another note, I'd also recommend not eating an In-N-Out burger an hour before bedtime (in case it helped bring about my odd nightmare). Dream starts with our family and friends boarding the Magic for a 7 Night Cruise. We had early seating for dinner, and for some reason they had tables set up in the hallways outside the atrium and we were eating dinner there instead of in one of the main dining rooms. Odd to get dresses up to eat in the hallway. Strange new rotations for dining times too. We had our salad and appetizers, then were excused from the tables for 30 minutes so that the late diners could come eat their salads and appetizers. When we returned for our main course, they brought out large pans of lasagna and served everyone a portion. I had a glass of red wine with my meal, and for some reason it turned my teeth a pretty shade of purple. So, after the meal I decided to go to my cabin to brush my teeth and discovered that I had failed to pack the entire toiletry bag (no deoderant, toothpaste/brush, etc.) and we had an entire sea day to go before we would reach a port that I could go into to purchase more necessities. Then the captain announces that we will be making a brief and immediate stop in Catalina (yes, that small island off of the CA coast). It was night, but I thought "cool, I'll go buy what I need. I've been to Catalina before and know where the stores are." So, I (with a bunch of strangers) get off the boat, and I start looking for a store. When I am about .5 mile from where I got off the ship, Jeff (host of Survivor) runs up to us with a box that holds our KTTW cards. He says you have to find yours to get back on the ship because for some reason they were not returned to us when we disembarked. At this point I realize I did not ever give them my card to scan when I got off the ship. I don't have my card with me, nor do I have a wallet (not sure how I was going to buy the toothpaste). Then I hear the captain blow the ship's horn so signal "all aboard." I start running back to the ship and realize I don't see it at all. Remember, it is still night time, and I figure I must be disoriented. Catalina is an island, so I figure I'm sure I'll see the boat if I just run a little further. I get to the location I thought I left the ship, but still don't see it. I see a woman in a Princess Cruise uniform (not sure how I would recognize it other than from old episodes of the Love Boat, as I've never been on a Princess Cruise). She is waving a large Mickey Head on a sign. I run up to her "hey, Disney Princess Woman... do you know where the Disney ship is?" She has no clue. Why would she...she works for another cruise line? Then I remember the whole KTTW issue. No one knows I did not return to the ship... for that matter, no one knows I even got off the ship. So, here I am - stranded in Catalina, at night, with purple teeth, no wallet, family on the ship enjoying the first night of a 7 night Carribean Cruise that I planned. Then I woke up! I have never had a more unusual dream! How about you???
