Well I’m sad to say I just got back from my Caribbean cruise and am back in the cold, dark midwest. Man, I don’t know how much longer I can take these midwest winters but that’s aside the point of this blog.
We had an awesome time – my girlfriend and I flew down to Puerto Rico and sailed south on a weeklong cruise to Barbados, St. Lucia, Tortola, Antigua and St. Thomas. We left 35 degree weather behind for 84 and sunny, swam the clearest ocean we’ve ever seen and snorkled. The scenery was beautiful – lush green rain forests and mountains and clean air. At one point while snorkeling, I peeled a banana underwater and there were so many fish swimming around me pecking away at the banana I couldn’t see one foot in front of me. Truly amazing. The boat itself was pretty cool actually. It was humongous. With this being my first cruise I’d always had this idea of what a cruise is like in my head: getting rocked out of bed, seasick, horrible excursions onto rainy land. Not that way at all – the food was good, we met many really friendly people and even the drink prices weren’t that bad. We did smuggle a bottle of vodka on the boat but no need to expand on that.
What a great trip though – here I sit now, it just snowed a couple days ago, I slipped on my front porch because it was so icy. Luckily my girlfriend helped catch me and I didn’t break my body into pieces. I think I just need to live somewhere warm soon. These KC winters are getting really old really quick. I might just have to sell everything and move down to St. Lucia.
One last thing – on the ship one night I got a “wild hair” and karaoke’d Rick Astley’s hit song “Never Gonna Give You Up” and rick-rolled an entire cruise ship. There were a lot of Canadians on the boat who didn’t get the reference, but such a hot performance still impressed the masses! Check out my sweet moves:
In honor of a memorable trip, and the legend of Rick Astley, I’d like to offer the QPON “RICK ROLL” for 6 dollars off of any repair. As usual this does not apply to any diagnostic services, only repairs. Just create your order and email me the QPON “RICK ROLL” to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll apply the discount for you.
Have a great time and go take a cruise and get away from the everyday stresses of life! – Mick
