Day One: Ft. Lauderdale

Posted on Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Dave!Greetings from onboard the mighty Island Princess.

Embarkation was a breeze... a pleasure even... which is not something I can say about most cruises I have taken. Not only did everything go quickly with a minimum time spent waiting in line, but the stateroom was ready before I even stepped foot on the ship.

After a nice buffet lunch, a safety drill, and smooth sailing out of Port Everglades, we were at sea, sailing away from grey skies towards a sunnier climate...

Passing Ft. Lauderdale Beach

Dinner, as usual for a cruise ship, was excellent. They have a decent Fettucini Alfredo as a standard menu item, which is pretty sweet. And then, before I even realized it, the sun went down and the night was here...

Tomorrow is a "day at sea" which is not my favorite thing, but I'm sure I'll manage doing nothing just fine.

   

30 DAYS DRAWING CHALLENGE: Draw Your Favorite Animated Character...

Bad Monkey and GIR

This was a complete no-brainer. There are a lot of animated characters I like (Batman, Sully Monster, Stitch, etc.)... but my hands-down favorite is GIR from Invader Zim. His crazy antics crack me up every time, and they managed to give him a personality that is something really special. Oh how I wish that they would make more Zim cartoons. I've seen the existing ones so many times I'm starting to memorize them.

    This is just like following the little airplane on the TV when you’re flying. They have live cam, too. Set an appointed time and do your best Leo diCaprio / “King of the world” pose on the bow and we’ll watch. Have fun!

    That boat looks big enough to be declared its own country.

    I have to watch Invader Zim again. It’s kind of where I stole the name Invader Stu from.
