Cruising is for old people

So I recently came back from L.A . My co-workers and I (Kei, Andie and Ash) had been planning this trip since about April I think. Joico was running an educational cruise down to L.A from Vancouver, fun right. My clients have been asking all week and I'm tired of complaining so here is the short version of why it was extremely sucky. Extreme boredom, rampant sea sickness, one very small pool 1, 500 people , a very large geriatric majority and very bad food.

Originally that cruise was the extent of our vacation , if not for the following three days in L.A we all would killed ourselves. We stayed in West Hollywood for three days right on Sunset Bvld. We were at a smaller hotel , very cute called the Grafton on Sunset. I would recommend it to anyone, we had a pool side room with a little table and chairs.

Hollywood is not the Glam I was expecting , dirty but very fun. We couldn't get into to any clubs the lines were ridiculous. There were Papparazzi on the sidewalks waiting for Celebs to go in and out of clubs. We did a lot of driving aimlessly at night trying to find somewhere to go.

We drank for 7 days straight I'm not ready to be back to work but thankfully it's almost the weekend again. I need a vacation from my vacation. I got a best bets email this morning $479 Varadero Cuba 4* all inclusive seemed great until I checked the weather in Cuba.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at His infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

P.P.S. Here's some blogs that I found
of interest
as I negotiated my way
through cyberspace:
