It's time. Gather 'round, everyone. I'm going to tell you a little story: Once upon a time, there was a young lady named Erica. She lived in a little house far, far away in a town called Casselberry, Florida. It was not far from Disney World, where she frequently traveled with her prince, Lionel. It was also not far from a place called Port Canaveral, where the charming couple vowed to return every September since their first trip on the Wonder in 2005. Oh. Did we mention they were geeks? Geeks who like to drink? Yes, it is THAT kind of trip report. Err, PRE-trip report. The cast! Erica, me, 33 years old and still a child at heart. A child who can buy rum. Lionel, DH, 36 years old. Geek. Cute geek, but a geek nonetheless. Aren't we cute? Sarah, DF, 28 or 29 or some nebulous younger-than-me age. Another cute geek. Cute CANADIAN geek. Mat, DF, Sarah's DBF, 30? 31? Maybe I shouldn't be posting ages without permission, eh? Especially when I don't even know. Well, anyhow, he's a geek too. AND he's from Texas. They give us a run for our schmoopy. Also joining us will be a few hundred DISers and their families! We are officially the "Double Dip Delight". We even have a logo. That's what happens when you cruise with geeks. We booked this cruise about a million or so years ago when it first became available, and for a long time it has seemed ridiculously far away. But now? Now it is only four months away and I am starting to panic, because I have nothing planned yet. This would not be a huge deal if we were going on another Wonder cruise, because I know Nassau and CC well enough to get by on such short notice. Cozumel and Costa Maya, however, are two different ball games. And there's that whole second day at CC thing to contend with. I'm way behind! So I will be using this as an update tool in addition to a place for a series of lists for myself. My first list follows: Things to do this weekend: Anxiously await the arrival of my 2008 Passporter Ok, that's really it so far. I do have other things to do, but I think they can wait. Like, getting an actual FORMAL dress. Very exciting. And probably getting Lionel a new tie or two. And maybe a new pair of Crocs sandals. And fish extender gifts. And..... Oh dear. Panic is setting in again. More to come soon, stay posted and thanks for reading!!!!
