The First of December, Ho

I have determined I will lose five pounds before Christmas. And then I ate an entire dark chocolate w/marzipan bar.


Some of the artwork included a large bronze tree:



With hummingbirds studded with Swarovski crystals...





This opened up to extend a little bridge that allowed the captain and the cruise director to come out and talk to people:



The Promenade also included this nifty model car (for picture-taking opportunities):





Some sunset shots from our balcony:








Today I've started working on the Rule of Three story again, making it a tighter (I hope) complete tale. They've given us a few extra words to add, but I can't go hog wild like I'd love to with this micro-world I created!

Funny how I'd scrupulously avoid sugared sodas and yet will drink half a bottle of wine without thinking about it...

I thought you might be amused I received a postcard today I've won a trip for two on a cruise with free round trip air flight. My immediate reaction was, "Bet it's not as nice as wildrider's."

Hee! I've gotten that postcard, too. I sort of view it somewhat askance...

Yeaaaaaah, me, too. :D

Wonder if they'd let me take three little dogs as my guest.

That could be fun! Of course, you'd have to worry about them jumping overboard in their excitement! :D

HEEE! Well, maybe Pewter. She's nearly blind. Rogue and Vinnie aren't keen on heights, though. I don't think they'd be as fascinated with jumping - except at strangers who might come near mommy.

Many dogs are wont to do that, though.

Vinnie is particularly protective when he's on a lead. And Rogue is suspicious of people in general.

Be careful. If they try to get your credit card info, it's a scam.

First, I'd have to be willing to call them back. When I'd have to take out a loan to pay for the taxes for winning a contest I sure don't remember entering, that's highly unlikely.

I trust it almost as much as I trust those Nigerian women who need my help getting their aunt's/husband's/great-uncle's inheritance out of the bank if I could just send them a couple thou, you know? :D

wait? What? I think I've fallen off a mailing list or something. When and where did they say anything about Rule of Three since I want to be able to do that too

Here.

What they're doing is the first volume e-book for Renaissance is only the winning stories (the top five); IF there is a second volume (and that's currently a big IF), then it'll collect the rest of the runners-up, so they're asking for the entire story, with an extra 400 words, for that. That's what I'm working on.

oh well cool and thanks and frankly that's a little disappointing to be honest. I wouldn't be very willing to spend money on a book with 5 stories in it, especially if I were an outside to this thing but whatever

Well, at least they've invited everyone back for the next blogfest in May, so there's a second chance for everyone. I really don't know how the e-books will work (heck, if it's an e-book it'd probably be on 99 cents, so), but I might as well submit, just in case!

yes, that will be fun and you might as well, you're right about that

actually looking at those comments i dont' see anything about the ebook.

Nope, that link's just for the next Blogfest in May, open to everyone! :)

ah yes. And I see I hadn't fallen off a mailing list since they didn't do anything with this site since I signed up for the feed. thanks

I can't believe all that fits on a ship. In-fucking-credible.

I believe the Allure has space for 6,000 passengers and 3,000 crew (I'm not sure, I didn't take the tour like I did aboard the Carnival Glory); those pictures were only deck 5 (there are 16 decks), the Promenade. I took a few shots of some of the amazing artwork in the stairwells -- more to come! :)
