Booze Cruise

---or the lack thereof. Ya so i also went on a cruise at the end of January and it was pretty fun. I went with 300 other single mormon people so i'm pretty sure Carnival hated us because we nearly ran the bars and the gambling tables out of business...but whoo-wee you should see how a bunch of mormons get down to cotton-eyed joe and the electric slide! Look out! Now its a party ship!!! No it really was a pretty good time though. I met a couple people that are pretty normal and with whom I actually hang out with now. We went to Puerto Rico (which of course means "Rrrrich Port"-said with accent by our tour guide 86 times during the tour...wait...does anyone know what Puerto Rico actually means? I think our guide knows) St. Maarten, and St. Thomas. We went snorkeling at St John's Trunk Bay and zip lining through the forest at Lotteri Farm for some of our shore excursions. Snorkeling was definetly my favorite day....or maybe it was the ridiculously handsome ship mate that took us? I can't remember. It's all a little hazey after I almost threw myself overboard because I was getting so sea sick on the ride over to Trunk Bay. I was doing just fine...until I wasn't doing fine anymore. So I got up to head to the back of the lil boat and who should appear in my path? Captain Tan Body. "Are you ok?" says Tan Body "Uh...where would you go if you needed to throw up?" "Here, you come with me." So as Tan Body throws his arm around my waist and escorts me to the back, I have no choice but to throw my arm around his...I HAD NO CHOICE!!! I WAS SICK! I NEEDED HELP!!! I NEEDED SUPPORT! Suddenly, the lump in my throat was dissipating, the merry-go-round in my belly coming to a halt, my dizzy head was clearing, the salty air filled my nostrils and I was on my way to a full recovery. Then The Capin' fetched me a chair and a cool ginger ale and told me he would check back to make sure I was doing ok. He was very kindly to me and took gentle care until i was ready to depart for snorkeling fun. Snorkeling was a blast and I really could have stayed out there drinking salt water and getting sand in my eyes all day but the Captain was awaiting...ha ha no but really he was dreamy; he was a dreamy dream cake. He came over and chatted with me on the boat ride back to the dock for a while and then we parted ways....if only I would have had 5 days instead of 5 hours I think somethin really nice might have blossomed...I guess we'll never know...

Kimby, I know Lij (the guy in the picture "formal night"). He and Jeremy are friends. I've been to his former San Diego Beach House. Crazy! Was Logan Barrows on this cruise too? If so, I'm going to really freak out because he and I are total buds (another Jer's friends). Anyway, loved the pictures and the blog is super cute! -Melissa

I've got you linked to my blog now. I'm still trying to figure out the kinks to blogging myself, but it's kindof fun.
So fun to hear about your trip. Jeff and I have been to a few of those places. Ahh, that sunshine would be nice right now.
Glad to hear your doing good.
