What Should I Do?

Now, I am leaving for my cruise on board the Carnival Freedom in 3 days. I am leaving Saturday, and the cruise departs Sunday. If you have had your eyes glued to the Weather Channel while eating Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter Crunch Cereal like I have, the you know about Tropical Storm Emily. Right now, I am very on edge about this storm, because I am afraid either my cruise will be cancelled, or we will be forced to skip a port. This has never happened to me, and I don not plan on it happening to me anytime soon, so for now I am trying to forget about it, but I keep getting notices about this storm, and John Heald (from Carnival) keeps taking about it on his Facebook and blog thingy. I do know that 2 Carnival ships have already been rerouted because of this storm, and I really don’t want to join that group, but I will just have to wait and see I guess.

Now, I just realized that this is like the first time I have blogged in a week, and I feel bad about not staying on some kind of schedule. So obviously, I will not be blogging at all this next week, because I really don’t feel like paying Carnival like $10 a minute for their incredibly slow computers, so I have thought of a few ways to keep all of my loyal blog readers (you) in the know. Here are the options…

  1. A short video blog once a day that would be posted on YouTube
  2. Maybe 3 (240 character) tweets a day
  3. A full summary of my cruise when I return home on the blog
I have looked into all of these and it seems possible for each one. I have found out ways of how not have to rely on a computer for options 1 & 2, so the internet isn’t a problem. I would like to know what my blog fans (you) would like me to do, after all this is for you. So if you wouldn’t mind voting in the poll at the bottom of this post, I would greatly appreciate it! Well, that is it for know, it’s been a slow week, and I have really done nothing. I am now beginning to pack for my cruise, and starting to freak out for flying. I find it strange that I hate flying, because I have flown over 50 time so far, and I have never been able to get rid of this fear. If you were to be on my flight and you looked around the plane, you would be able to spot me. I would be the one clutching the arm rests, with my seat belt clamped tight around my waist, praying, and every time there is any kind of movement in the cabin searching the entire plane for anything unusual. Wow, I sound like a freak, or am I just a modern day flyer? 🙂
