It's funny how jenniever has posted to LJ more often since we started dating, while I have been posting less often. Not that we post about each other all that much, but others have noticed and I find it amusing.

It's been a fun week at work. Sunday I was enjoying fun with Sasser. That kept us busy this week. Plus the meeting with the library people, doing my self-eval, the senior goodbye lunch, a Helpdesk staff meeting, and little things here and there. The semester's ending in a rush of excitement, stress, and noise for everyone.

End of May through start of June, jenniever and I are going on a cruise together. I haven't really taken a vacation since I started my employment at drewuniversity back in January of 2000, except for taking three or four days off for MB2K the summer of that year. Both supervisors I've had during that time have been trying to urge me to take one, this opportunity came up, I'm grabbing it. Ten days gone, taking six days off from work. NYC to San Juan, Puerto Rico to Philipsburg, St. Maarten to Tortola, British Virgin Islands to Half Moon Cay and back to NYC. Sure, it's a bit of money. Sure, I should leave a larger nest egg in case my car goes tits-up sometime soon. But I'll be leaving plenty in savings and don't want to miss this opportunity. I haven't seen much of the world, I've never been on a cruise, and this sounds like a ton of fun. I can't wait.

Feeling: happy happy

Sounds like a good plan Russ. You definitely deserve it. Enjoy.

Thanks, Stanlick.

You still need to get your own account though.

I am not big on the whole journal thing. I do randomly reply to posts and the people there know who I am. Maybe one day though.

But all the friends-only stuff were we talk shit about you, man? You can't see it!

Happy now? I can't believe I caved in. What a little bitch I am.

One of us, one of us!

I'm proud of you, anyway.

Funny how part of me cringes and thinks "He's getting on a BOAT?? For a VACATION??" while another part of me is insanely jealous. I kinda want to go on a cruise, just for the novelty of being underway and being able to sleep in as late as I want, and oh yeah eat good food too.

You should take pictures, lots and lots of pictures. Especially of the boat, so that I can drool and dribble in envy of your cabin.

I hope you have lots of fun. Please remember that rough seas and hangovers do not mix well, which is the only good advice I've got. :)

I probably won't be doing that much drinking, but thanks for the warning, sailor! I agree that the idea of you on a cruise for a vacation is hilarious, go for it!

I've told jenniever that we've been ordered to take many photographs.

I am so jealous! I have always wanted to go on a cruise! I am glad you are finally taking a much needed vacation, and that you are doing it right.

You should play Kingdom of Loathing, where you can get Leotarrrrds and Arrrrgyle socks from pirates.

Re: Yarrr!

I actually started playing the night before last...I haven't gotten to the pirates yet. I can't wait!
