Hi, Kiddies! I'm back! (sort of)

Hello there! I am back from my floating Caribbean journey, and while I wish I could tell you that I am refreshed and full of verve, I must be honest and tell you that I'm sick in bed. Maybe with a virus. I've got a weird and extremely unpleasant combination of sinus pain-cum-neck pain and nausea. Yesterday morning things got explosive and quite disgusting. I'm a little better today and will see the doctor this afternoon. Living on a diet of ginger ale and saltines, which gets old quick.

Well, I have lots and lots to write about.

Geriatrics are deranged and a menace to society. (I have proof.) Gilead is a most lovely book. I may be sick of mysteries. (Heaven forfend!) Cruising involves moral conflict. Everyone should go visit the Sloth Sanctuary in Lim<´>n, Costa Rica. I love snorkeling!, when it's not inducing asthma-related panic. I'm too ADD to really appreciate the Panama Canal, apparently. Princess Cruise Lines will be receiving a detailed letter about the emotional and thus marketing effects of nickel-and-diming its customers to death.

Uh oh. Starting to feel queasy. Gotta go. Be back later.

  1. Welcome back. Sounds like a yuck cruise. I'm not a cruise fan, myself. Tired of mysteries? Yeah, maybe me, too. But what will I do for good junk food reading? Take care, CG dear. Get some rest and let us know when you are better.

  2. I think Ulysses took a princess cruise lines home, no? Should have been warning enough.

  4. You so need to read DFWs "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never do Again" after your cruise. Get well, Girl!

  5. My wife is into cruising for two weeks or so in February, leaving me home to mind the woodstove. She's been up the Danube, around the Straits of Magellan, and across to the Canary Islands from Barcelona. Never been nickeled-and-dimed to death, though.

  6. Yeah, I'm reading the DFW essay. Damn, I was knocked on my butt by that virus, and then there was Christmas!
