Annush Superstar!

It's finally the last day of the cruise...tomorrow at this time we should be in London and I couldn't be happier. Although I have learned to find joy in the simple things while I have been here, I'm more than eager to go back to my pseudohappy/ complicated existance.

Yesterday I went to karaoke. While I was there, I was talked into singing in front of what seemed like everybody. At first I was reluctant to do it because lately I've found that it's not hard to draw attention to myself here and I don't want to be the kind of person who would steal other people's thunder; however, people wanted me to amuse them so I, along with my new friend Kathryn as backup, performed a rendition of "These Boots Are Made For Walking" that would have made Nancy Sinatra proud.

Now I have a fan club.

I also have a couple of really good friends :) Together, we won the trivia game. And I know that they wouldn't have won without me because the final question was "What is Moby?" and everyone in the room was convinced that it was a whale from a novel, but not me. Moby is a DJ/producer!!

I am telling you, I am finiding joy in simple things...

Last night was the last formal night and Ivan and I went to a party where there was only ballroom dancing. I was out of luck because he doesn't know how to dance to any of that, and to this day, everyone thinks that he is my husband so nobody will ask me to dance when he is around. The elderly are so respectful!

Me and Kathryn yet again
Let's see...what else...I finished reading "The Motorcycle Diaries" and now I'm in love with someone who is dead. Even more so than I was after I saw the movie.

Oh and I have a story!

Stephanie, my friend who works on board the ship, told me a story about this German guy who came on this cruise with the sole purpose of killing himself. Apparently, he left a suicide note on his desk at home. Once his wife found it, she tried to get in contact with him on the ship, but he was nowher to be found. So they did all the standard missing person drills only to find that the man had jumped. Maritime law says that if someone jumps, the ship needs to go back and look for the body so the ship turned around. Unfortunately, they never found him.

I don't know why I just told you all that :)

Anyway, next time I write it'll be from London so until then mates!

Missing you little lady!!

Sing and dance your heart out with every chance you get.

Creepy thought about the guy jumping overboard.

Get rid of those sea legs and focus on the London boys!

The suicide thing is really sad. How terrible.

It sounds like your "joy in little things" has run kind of thin. Good thing you can get back to normal life. Soon you'll be hoping for another vacation....with people more your age.

Glad to learn you're having a blast! Can't wait till you come home and post some more of your exciting stories. Doesn't that suck? When you're on vacation and people are wishing you were back home?
