Cruise Ship Portraits



To my fellow cruisers, have you seen those cheap people who have their portraits professionally taken onboard, then use their own digital camera to take a blurry photo instead of actually buying the portrait?

On past cruises, Sexy Nerd and I have always made fun of people like that.


Then we learned that the 2 photos above were going to cost almost $50!

Worst Fortune Cookie Fortune EVER

We're home from vacation! Three days back into my normal routine, there are already four cruise tabs open on my computer. I'm thinking we need to try Celebrity.

While waiting for our flight from Fort Lauderdale to Denver, I decided to munch on a fortune cookie that I'd been saving in my pocket.


I had just checked my luggage in with Southwest.

Sexy Nerd Quote of the Day

When it comes to planning a vacation, Sexy Nerd and I aren't always on the same page.

I enjoy things like farmer's markets, antique stores, and botanical gardens. When dreaming of a trip to California, Sexy Nerd shot down all of these activities as being "boring". Disneyland, the San Diego Zoo, and Universal Studios were also considered borderline boring.

The beach?

"Boring."

California Adventure?

"Boring."

I googled California tourist attractions for nerds. The La Brea Tar Pits came up - perfect!

Sexy Nerd was intrigued. His response to this suggestion?

"Do you actually get to see the tar?"

To Do...Hacked

Sexy Nerd started 2013 in his typical way. He cooked up potatoes and a few green chile burritos for breakfast this morning. It smelled delicious and it seemed like a nice way to begin the new year.

Then, he asked me if I wanted any.

It's just his way.

A bit later, (you know, after serving up my own breakfast) I turned on my computer and pulled up my To Do list. Here it was, as of last night:

  1. Pack for cruises
  2. Clean house
  3. Email cruise lines re: blog post
  4. Check into cruises. Can I register w NCL yet? Need to call?
  5. Download maps to Nexus
This morning, I was startled to see that my list had more than doubled in length. Perhaps I'd partied a little too hard on New Year's Eve? I didn't remember adding anything new.

Plus, Sexy Nerd and I are old souls, so you know we were both asleep by 9pm on New Year's Eve.

Here is my new '2013 To Do' list. See if you can guess who updated it.


  1. Get Freaky with SN :-)
  2. Pack for cruises
  3. Clean house
  4. Email cruise lines re: blog post
  5. Check into cruises. Can I register w NCL yet? Need to call?
  6. Download maps to Nexus
  7. Feed the Pica Butt...
  8. Kiss a frog
  9. Build a house in Paako
  10. Go to the beach
  11. Eat a cookie
  12. Bake banana bread
  13. Feed banana bread to SN
  14. Go to sleep
  15. Wake up
  16. Go to sleep again
  17. Guess what...time to wake up
By the way, I told Sexy Nerd that I would be posting his updates, but of course with the first "to do" removed. He said to leave it. Apparently, 2013 is going to be the year of TMI.


Happy New Year!
