Sorry, no History Friday this weekend, had to get all my poop in a group for the big cruise departure. As I sit here it's almost 2AM Sunday, so we'll be leaving for Ma's house in about 9 hours, so we can be FIVE HOURS EARLY just in case we needed to, I dunno, grow some aloe in case we burn ourselves on board or some goddamn thing or other.
Ma wants to suck up every single experience, what with this being one of her bucket list things, so I figure that it would be better if she got on board as early as she can, so I'm not going to begrudge that. I got her convinced (with the help of the guy giving us a ride to the port) that since it's such a tight squeeze into the pier that they have a bunch of rowers who hand-row the vessel into and out of its berth! Oh the fun we'll have.
Well it's getting late, cats and kittens: it's time to shut down Radio Free Crafty for a while. Should be back in time for next week's HF. Wish me luck at my twin goals of winning enough money to book next year's cruise and not killing my mother. If there's any news regarding a cruise ship gone to the briny deep, just make sure it's not the Carnival Glory. And if it is, keep your mitts off my fucking stuff. I have a will.
Stay well one and all,
PS the final chapter of my quest to obtain the proper paperwork to legally purchase a handgun in Rhode Island has been written, but that would be like talking about dessert and not mentioning the entrée. I'll tell you all about it when we get back.
