Blame Canada

Well, we're back from our cruise and it was a blast-blur. Seriously, I don't remember going to bed the whole trip - it was that much fun. I feel like I'm going to go into post-vacation depression or something.

Since the cruise promised their on board connection was crappy, I opted not to sign up for it and didn't touch my iPad until we got to land. I felt so loved to find 287 new messages in my Inbox when we reached Saint John's Ale House, our first "pub" stop in Canada.

I planned to catch up on my blog business there...honestly, I did. How was I to know Canada's standard serving glass was 20 ounces? After four pubs do you think any of my comments would've made sense?


Here are some highlights of the buffoonery we took on our journey to the Great White North.

Looking for sharks...yeah.
Our fabulous window. If you could've been on the other side of it, you would have seen one of us dance naked in front of it at one point. Including me.

Who's gonna see you - a dolphin?

Case in point:

Gollum in Room 126

While babysitting our baby cousin, you can imagine the strange looks we got when my husband pushed the stroller. Two bi-racial kids, one blond-haired, blue-eyed baby? I could see the confusion in the stranger's eyes.

Asian woman adopting white baby? Or Daddy has super white genes?

I told my husband to just say the baby's from another mother and let them out figure the rest.

"Baby from another mother"

And here's Samu on three days of endless buffet food featuring all-you-can-eat hot dogs, fries, pizza, ice cream and cookies.

I'm down (lost at the arcade games)

I'm up (gimme another SODA)

And in between: time to dance naked in front of the window now?

Finally, we just told him to shut up.

"I can't shut up," he said, "I'm a non-shutter-upper!"

No kidding.

He's got a retort for everything. Then again, so does my husband whose idea of a sunset picture with his son should look like this:

Boogers by sunset
 Facebook photo album for those who dare. Thanks to everyone for sticking around while I was away getting Canadian roasted. I promise to be blog stalking as soon as my land legs come back.


  1. Looks like you had fun and that's the main thing. I will say that I missed your posts. :)

    1. Fun is always the main thing - even while working, don't you think? Thanks for missing me.

  2. WTF? Why did I not know you were going on a cruise? Yesterday I wondered outloud, where the hell is Nami? I'm breaking up with you.

    1. Yes, imagine if this were "The Notebook"?! I'd be screwed.

  3. The Gollum picture is seriously funny. I'd be careful though, I'veheard dolphins are huge perverts.

    Also, your comment on my food allergy post is my favorite comment - not just of yours - of all time.

    1. If we had a blow-hole on the top of our head and a penis for a nose, we'd be huge perverts, too!

      ...and now I have to see what comment I made because that just made my day!

  4. Sounds like an awesome time you guys had. Gotta love that prank on strangers :D

  5. That Gollum pic? Possibly the best photo ever.
    Glad you had a good time, and glad you're back!

    1. Thanks, Michelle - we're nicknaming him Schmiegel, now.

  6. I think you should've named this post "The Streaker".

    1. Better yet, I should compile all their gratuitous shots and name a post that!

  7. I wish I had the guts to dance naked in windows!

    1. Oh, cruises make you do the weirdest thangs!
