Guest Post: I'm On A Boat

Today's guest is the author of Thoughts Appear. Her blog is hilarious, I love her book reviews, and she is witty and clever and downright awesome. And just so you know, she scores extra points with me for letting me name her guest post after this music video. Have I mentioned how fabulous she is? Go and check her out. You're welcome.

Anyone else miss Aly? Yeah, me too.

I'm totally envious of her and all of her travels. London, Paris, Australia, Prague. I've lost track of all the places she's been.

Le sigh. I never go any cool places, mate. So I'm forced to throw around random words from other countries whenever I get the chance. You gotta problem with that, esse? Eh? Blimey, my life stinks.

Where do you think Aly is now? Probably Las Vegas. I live in the United States, and I've never even been to Vegas. I hope she wins loads of money. Maybe she'll hire me as her personal assistant. Then she can pay me to guest blog while she's visiting other cool places.

Or maybe she'll take me with her next time she goes on a European bus tour on Halloween or to Hawaii.

Enough about Aly. Let's talk about me and my blog. I'm particularly fond of that topic. What? You're not? If I tell you what Aly and I have in common, will you be more receptive?

  • We both have cats. (Oscar and Esme)
  • We're both picky eaters. Meaning we eat only Pop-Tarts. Seriously.
  • We both love Rainbow Brite.
Are you convinced that I'm cool enough to continue reading? What if I promise to take you with me on my trip? That's right. I said, "My trip." Lean in close. Closer, closer, clooooooser.


You almost peed your pants, didn't you? So did I when I found out.

I've never been on a cruise, so I'm super excited. I've never even been out of the country. What language do they speak in the Caribbean? I'll just continue using my smorgasbord of languages.

Maybe my newly learned sign language will come in handy. Sign language? Handy? Get it? Ha! I crack myself up.

I'm cruising with my boyfriend (who I call Kiefer Sutherland). I tend to be a bit of a fraidy cat when it comes to new places, so if you have any suggestions on how to permanently attach myself to his side, I'd be for-ev-er in your debt.

Caribbean, here I come!

Of course, it's not until April.

I guess I'll relinquish my grasp on Aly's blog. Cheers!

Ooh fun! I've been on a cruise (I was 16) and it was awesome. I'm a bit of a scaredy cat too, so no advice there. :)

They speak the language of cash on the islands. They will try and talk to you at every port and get you buy stuff or give them money. So, pretend you are from NY and just ignore them;) Bring lots of cash so you can haggle with them. Which ports are you going to so I can give you specifics:)

Hey, Thoughts, I'm eating a Pop Tart while reading your guest post. All your talk about the stuff on your blog has given me cravings! LOL

I've never been on a cruise, but have visited Dominican Republic and they speak Spanish there. The major languages appear to be English, Spanish or French, so I guess it depends on where specifically in the Caribbean you're going.

Continue with your smogarsbord, you're bound to hit the jackpot at one point! ;)

This is my first cruise, and I'm 29. I've been waiting forever for this!

I think the ports are St. Thomas, Curacao, Aruba. I can't remember where else.

Pop-Tarts are catching! What flavor?

Permanently attach to his side? What about that red tape mentioned in my post today? I'm still on the hunt for it so I will be sure to pass it your way. I have till April right? ;)

My favorite part was "esse." :)

I also love Rainbow Brite so you're cool in my books!

Also, I'm super jealous you're going on a cruise. I've never been outside of Europe so am jealous of anyone who lives or has been outside of there!
