Ghost Ship

Thanks Amelia for filling in for me on Thurs last week and totally cracking me up with the albino picture of me. I owe you big time. Really. Big time. Really big.

I am finally getting my computer back from my freakin' kids that are home for the holidays. Jerks. Just kidding. They are wonderful precious souls. Just kidding. I could go on forever, so let's get on with the show......

The Royal Caribbean ship, Adventure of the Sea, is now known as the place where all famous people who have died go. Seriously.

I saw many famous people, but Rick and his "you can't just take a picture of strangers" philosophy was ringing in my ears ALL.THE.DAMN.TIME. and I never had my freakin' camera when they were around. Except one day....

So when he went to the bathroom while on St Thomas, I took one of Sadam Hussein yelling at his wife.

There was also Desi Arnez Sr (Ricky Ricardo), Hitler (only his famous moustache was under his bottom lip), and Gilda Radner. All of them were there. And I was an absolute idiot when they were around me. By the way, Desi's wife hated me and thought I was ready to jump the old guys bones.She gave me the stink eye every time I saw them. And he wore fish net mesh tank tops. A big turn off for me.

Since we boarded out of San Juan and apparently they offered a special to Puerto Rican folks, any English speaking person was the minority. Peurto Ricans are very sweet and VERY LOUD.

They know how to have a good time, but they all travel together, all 25 members of their family. And they all stayed on our end of the ship. On our deck. And opened and closed their door 500,000 times in a 24 hour period.

Tiff and Deb jinxed me. They, along with 5 million other screaming teenie-boppers have talked non-stop about the damn Twilight series, Edward, Bella, yada yada yada. So at the airport, I am scanning the bookstore waiting to throw out 20 bucks for the cheesey paperback that will take up the couple of hours on the plane I will not be sleeping when I see it. There on the top shelf is Twilight. I smiled and looked around hoping there was something that would persuade me to buy it. I wasn't going to fall victim to this rage. I was going to be the one and only human with a vagina on the planet that had not read the stupid book about stupid vampires falling in love with a stupid girl.

I am hooked. Jerks.

Tomorrow holds non-stop patient care and cooking at night to prepare for the 35 people that will be coming for Thanksgiving. So I will be back on Friday. Everyone take the week off so I can catch up with you guys!!!!!

Edward it hot huh??? Like really hot. Are double A batteries really on sale??

GinGin said...

Jill, So glad you are home safe and sound. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope many people will take a look at the prayer request for Little Peyton. She had her surgery today and it went well, they say the next 48 hours are critical and Shani said the parents are pretty upset with how she looks now on the ventilator and the open chest etc. Oh my gosh I think that would be so darned hard to deal with. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. You did say Amy's coming, correct? Gin Gin

Deb said...

Ha. Now you're pathetically addicted. So silly. So sad. So...just like me.

Yay Twilight!!

Robin said...

I guess that means I am the only one left with a vagina who has not succumbed to twilight. And I thought you were gonna keep me company! No fair
PS- I'd have fought you for Saddam. Talk about sex-ay! For reals.

Farrago said...

I've already taken a week off. Where the heck are you?

And I wish I had a vagina...or two.

gingela5 said...

HAHA...so glad you're addicted to Twilight now! I can only laugh because as you know I succumbed to it too. I made fun of it more than anyone. Call me a hypocrite! Love the picture of Sadam...and mesh tank tops are hot right now--I would hate to see his tan line! :)

Janie said...

Welcome home, girlfriend! We've missed you (though Amy kicked it guest posting!).

See ya soon I hope!

Kritta22 said...

Hooked huh? All I have to say is "Told ya!"

Tiffany said...

Muhahahaha. I not only had a voodoo doll of you but I made it hold a teeny tiny Twilight book in it's hands.

Welcome to the coven dear. I'm so glad you love it. I TOLD YOU SO!!! Now if only your sister could read then we could get her on board too. LOL

Tiffany T said...

Hey, Jill - I saw your comment on Gingela5 and came over for a look-see.

So Twilight huh? Sigh... well, now you have to go see the movie to tell us if reading the book reduces the movie to crapola.

Nice to meet you, and I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

Welcome back Jilldo!!

Can't wait to hear about all your stories. That sucks about missing your connection and your luggage going missing.

Too funny you got hooked on Twilight! LOL Welcome to the club!

binks said...

I bought the book and it is sitting on the kitchen counter, but I'm afraid I won't be able to stop.

Deb said...

ahhh, your words are like music to my ears. or i guess to my brain, since i didn't read your post out loud to myself. i am so happy to have you back on dry land to help me through my days.

i am very impressed with the photo of saddam. did you just point and click? i am a little scared to just start clicking at random strangers, but sometimes it is a must! i was SO tempted yesterday when i saw the salvation army "santa" (i think he was wearing one of those fishnet tanks, too), ringing his bell with one hand and TEXTING with the other!

can't wait for more tales from the cruise. i am sure you had a blast and i know everyone was transfixed by your beauty (and/or eating abilities).

happy thanksgiving!

Ronda's Rants said...

Glad you home...I love cruises...it is my favorite thing to do...can you tell I desperately need one?
Don't work too hard and enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Soxy Deb said...

I cannot stop laughing at you!!
"Peurto Ricans are very sweet and VERY LOUD.They know how to have a good time, but they all travel together, all 25 members of their family. And they all stayed on our end of the ship. On our deck. And opened and closed their door 500,000 times in a 24 hour period."
That's freaking hilarious! And cant be considered the tiniest bit Politically Incorrect since we're Portugese (lmao!!!) You were definitely channeling me with that one. BIG *sigh*!

Sorry about the Twilight addiction. I really am, I tried to tell Tiff to put the voodoo doll down - she was having none of it. She figured this was her best chance to get you hooked and took it. It was all her, not me. Swear. Promise. (tiff, can't I get my pins back?)

Eudea-Mamia said...

Ah, everything is right in my world again - a cup of coffee with a shot of Jill.

Thanks my love, I really needed that.

Good luck with the 35 guests!! Pizza is the new turkey.

georgie said...

Oh.My.Gawd!!!! you are hooked on twilight eh? LOL well we wont be seeing or hearing from ya for a while then cuz you WILL hafta read the next 3 books....

Mrs4444 said...

So far, I've managed to keep my reading addiction to the blogosphere!

Outnumbered2to1 said...

Great, so I'm the last one resisting the urge of twilight.

Love the picture of Sadam screaming at his wife.

Mesh tops? Do guys really think thats an attractive look? Could we not finally bust that fashion myth and let them know that everytime they were one, we throw up a little in our mouth.

Have a great thanksgiving.

Julie said...

I have all 4 books if you need to borrow one. I'm only on #2. They suckered me into it as well.

Jennifer Suarez said...

Yeah I've caved too and decided to ask for the books for xmas. I love to read and I keep hearing such great things that I can't resist.

I.am.a.lemming

I'm secretly hoping I'll hate them so I can blog about hating them and cause all sorts of chaos.

Anyway, glad you had a good time and it's nice to have you back.

Aria said...

Welcome Back Jill! For your return giftie, there are three awards for you over at my blog http://ariazink.blogspot.com
Congrats!

Jess said...

I was a late bloomer with Twilight, too and just finished reading the last book. It is truly addicting!

Ginger said...

Hi Jill:
My son and D.I.L. took that cruise last month (same ship too). They went with 3 other couples and had a great time. Except for the boring flight, too long, according to my son. (Anything over an hour is too long)
I haven't read the book, or series I guess it is, yet. Everyone is talking about it, so I guess I will have to break down and buy it.
Happy Thanksgiving to you.
Ginger

The Mom said...

I know i'll be addicted once I fork over the cash for the book! Happy Turkey Day!!

Bobbi Jo said...

I love your posts. You just crack me up. I must admit here in the blogasphere that I HAVE NOT read Twilight. I really have no desire too. Hmm maybe that makes me weird.
I love your sightings too FUNNY!
I am so glad I have found you and your sister I can always count on a good chuckle reading your posts. Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Jenni Jiggety said...

Oooh you were on Adventure????? That is MY ship! I have been on it twice and I am trying to talk my husband into hitting it again this summer...

Justine said...

OMG, you're cracked in the head seeing all them dead folks! LOL!

I nearly wet myself with your "vagina" line. I'm at my inlaws' and must go in and tell my mil about it! Heeheeheeeeeeee! Welcome to the vampire obsession! Now my 11-year-old is addicted!

Justine :o )

nikkicrumpet said...

I guess only me and my vagina have not read the book now....I can't believe you caved to all that peer pressure. Loved the cruise...what little we got to see of it! Sheeesh ya didn't even show us a stinkin picture of the boat? You just lost like 300,000,000 blogger points for that! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Linda S said...

happy Thanksgiving...glad you enjoyed your trip!

georgie said...

stoppin in to say Happy Thanksgiving!

Julie said...

Happy Thanksgiving, pretty lady!

KJ said...

Picking up Twilight is like succumbing to the Borg. Once they grab you, resistance is futile, and you will love it. :)

Happy Turkey Day! Gobble! Gobble!

dana wyzard said...

dumb dumb dumb Why didn't you take a cruise DURING Thanksgiving so you'd really have something to be thankful for. Will Amelia be there? huh? huh? Are ya gonna bop her one?

dana wyzard said...

By the way, I AM THE ONLY woman with a vagina AND BALLS ENOUGH to refuse to read, much less PURCHASE, Twilight. Ya wussy.

Holly Jahangiri said...

Hate to disillusion you, Dana, but you are NOT.

Grown-up women read Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series. *smirk* I keep thinking, "What is this? Anita Blake for teeny-boppers?"

OMG. I just admitted to reading Laurell K. Hamilton... *slinks off back to her own blog*

Rhonda said...

Hey, glad you're back!!! Me too! Now to catch up on all the blogs I've missed...

georgie said...

Annie said...

I'll take the only vagina NOT reading the series award from you.
Thank you very much.

Elaine A. said...

I'm just not into to vampires so me and my vagina have yet to read it...

Glad you had so much fun spotting celebrities on your trip! ;-)
