Happy Easter! (that's Sunday)

This post is already longer than my post last week.

Tem asked about cruises yesterday. I've been on 4 and I've had a good time on all 4 cruises I've been on. Sure, they may not be as good as a Sandal's resort, but that doesn't mean they suck (Lp). You get pretty good bang for your buck (twss) on cruises. I've done 4,5, and a 7 day cruise. While I like being on vacations, on day 6 of the 7 day cruise I was kind of ready to be back home (wussbag). I've only gone on cruises out of Galveston, TX, so I can't tell you anything about the Mediterranean cruises. I went on Carnival cruise lines on all 4. Carnival is more suited for a younger crowd while Royal Carribean is more for an older crowd (suite! /tp). I thought the food was good and it always easy to get booze. You can also sneak booze on easily as well.

Mike and Mike posed an interesting question this morning...should college coaches do a better job of preparing their student athletes to be a pro player? Is that part of their responsibility? My opinion is no...their job is to win. If they don't win enough, they get fired...plain and simple. Did tp care of Meyer fixed Tebow's throwing motion or if they won national titles?

Jug is moving to the other building today or tomorrow...somewhere in there. Bummer. It will affect LOV time slightly. The real bummer (woe) is not being able to listen to music/talk radio since I'm sharing an office with 3 other people. I need to invest in a pair of good headphones (I wish there was something to cover your face!).

I don't have any "here/there" plans (loser!) this weekend. Hanging out with my brother's wife's family on Easter Sunday...that's about it.

The problem isn't with guys going, it's with guys going too fast.

El Padrino said...

for a guy like me a crusie is a lose lose

i hear they hammer you with a liquor bill at the end of the trip

El Padrino said...

i heard the rooms are small, the boat moves and you can only be in one location for like 2 hours

and they hit you with a likka bill when you leave

Jugdish said...

one thing about a cruise that is good for me is there is a cruise port 25 minutes from my house, so I don't have to fly anywhere. It is limited to where I can go out of that one port...but its still cool

Jugdish said...

as for the liquor bill...they give you a room key/card and its tied to a credt card or debit card...or you can pre-pay. you use that card to buy booze on the ship. you can check your balance/add money every day if you need to.

Jugdish said...

i heard the rooms are small, the boat moves and you can only be in one location for like 2 hours



the rooms are on the small side, but you shouldn't be in there very much

Jugdish said...

the boat moves


they do tend to do that. i never had a problem with motion sickness though

Blue said...

oh and people die on cruises all the time

Jugdish said...

you can only be in one location for like 2 hours



are you talking about the stops? You're usually in port for about 8 hours...sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less. Its always enough time to do an excursion or do your own thing.

Jugdish said...

oh and people die on cruises all the time



people die everywhere all the time

Beth said...

"people die everywhere all the time"

Especially friends my age!

/tp

Blue said...

not at rockies games

Blue said...

i've never heard of anyone dying in hawaii

Blue said...

not saying it didn't happen, but i've never heard of it

Beth said...

And I had a great time on the cruise I took a few years ago (also out of Galveston).

Although I disagree that Royal Caribbean is for an older crowd, I think it's aimed at more of an athletic crowd (think rock climbing walls, ice skating, surfing, etc.) I don't remember a 40 yard dash event though, it's not THAT athletic.

Jugdish said...

Jugdish said...

maybe less kids on the royal caribbean?

El Padrino said...

i like to fly to a place and stay there for X amount of days then fly home

a cruise id feel like im travelling the whole vacation

maybe im a weirdo

Jugdish said...

know your role!

Beth said...

"maybe im a weirdo"

Maybe?????

Jugdish said...

a cruise id feel like im travelling the whole vacation



i never felt that way....no hassles of traveling after you get checked in

El Padrino said...

really?

S

i get that jug, point is i drinkalot on vacation i prefer all-inclusive for this reason, cruise is what $5000 then when i leave i owe another $1000 or so

El Padrino said...

im not one to check in on my likka bill during a trip

when you run a tab at the bar do you ask the bartneder what your up to or do you keep ordering

Beth said...

"i never felt that way....no hassles of traveling after you get checked in"

Yeah, me either. It's kind of like going back to your hotel room each night and in the morning the whole hotel was magically at a new location.

Beth said...

See, that's one disadvantage of being a guy, you have to pay for drinks in a bar.

Jugdish said...

i get that jug, point is i drinkalot on vacation i prefer all-inclusive for this reason, cruise is what $5000 then when i leave i owe another $1000 or so



im sure all inclusive is better and that's cool. if you're paying 2500 a person for a cruise you're going at least 7 days, if not longer.

i was on a cruise for 7 days and it ran me about 800 a person. all food included. we snuck on rum and vodka too, so we could mix our own drinks by the pool.

El Padrino said...

i did just book july vacation finally

cmep : can we book ocean city rooms already they are running out!

ep: relax, it's april bro

cmep : dont call me bro give me your card number

i get an email half hour later, rooms booked

Jugdish said...

Yeah, me either. It's kind of like going back to your hotel room each night and in the morning the whole hotel was magically at a new location.



plus the towel animals

Beth said...

"i get an email half hour later, rooms booked"

Just be glad she did it, if you kept putting it off and later the rooms were fully booked you'd never hear the end of it.

tem said...

i don't think fmtem wants to co to the carib.

i don't know of any all inclusive places that aren't in the carib. any idears?

Jugdish said...

my parent's house is all inclusive


/mize and freak

tem said...

if they lived in florida or something that might work.

tem said...

maybe TP can put us up for a week and let us drink all his booze.

we'll take the couch until he gets in trouble, then we'll use an air mattress.

Jugdish said...

you guys can go beat the homeless together

Jugdish said...

hawaii?

El Padrino said...

"i don't know of any all inclusive places that aren't in the carib. any idears?"

well outside of mexico and hawaii probably not

El Padrino said...

"i don't think fmtem wants to co to the carib."

strange

Blue said...

it's tough to find all inclusive places in Hawaii

Mexico is the big one

Blue said...

but Hawaii is a long m'fer flight from South Bend Indiana

Blue said...

m'fing?

m'fer?

whatever

Blue said...

although gives tem more of a chance to join the milehigh club

Beth said...

"my parent's house is all inclusive

/mize and freak"


Hilarity.

tem said...

i was unaware Hawaii had all inclusive places.

Blue said...

Hawaii doesn't, or if they do, they're not reasonable rates for all inclusive

El Padrino said...

they do blue, i mean when i was looking to go they did

it was offered by the hotel and like you can imagine it wasnt worth it

tem said...

so, since hawaii all inclusives are a rip off and we don't want to go to the caribbean a cruise in the med doesn't sound bad.

tem said...

hawaii non all inclusive is still an option too.

Beth said...

I just can't believe she's not happy with Temhio.

Beth said...

I could never date a girl who isn't happy with Temhio.

/mize

El Padrino said...

only two more episodes of justified left

they better give me a 3rd season

tem said...

we live here, we don't vacation here.

we need to escape temhio. sometimes it is nice to be able to walk down the street and not have people asking for your autograph or asking to have their picture taken with you.

tem said...

that's why the wedding is in ND. if we had it here too many people would show up.

Jugdish said...

it would be like the royal wedding

Jugdish said...

we need to escape temhio. sometimes it is nice to be able to walk down the street and not have people asking for your autograph or asking to have their picture taken with you despite my face.

El Padrino said...

cleveland is an awesome place

Keef said...

He got run over for real dough

Keef said...

In the meantime, there is new video of the accident that is burning up the web.
Leonard Hubbard says he had just wrapped up his interview at McDonalds when the fight started.
"I stepped outside and I saw a girl spit in the other girl's face and I knew something was about to happen," said Hubbard.
He says it felt like a flash mob, complete with fists and weave. He took out his cell phone and started shooting.
"It felt like I was right there in a movie and I was the director. But that was real. It wasn't fake. It wasn't acted out," said Hubbard.




Hilarity

"running question for beth...are you a heel to toe runner, or do you run more on the balls of your feet?"

I've got a very screwy running form. I land on the outside of the forefront of my feet. When I have to replace my shoes the only places they are worn are in that front outside area.

Whenever I get fitted for new shoes and they see that they can't believe I've never been injured.
