leaving soon

I've never been in my cube at work in the middle of the night before, let alone on a weekend! In about an hour I'll be sharing a cab to SFO with co-workers as we take our flight to Miami for this year's kickoff trip. Last year was Vegas, and this year they say it's cheaper to send us on a cruise to the Bahamas instead! We sail from Miami on Monday, Nassau on Tuesday, private Royal Caribbean island Coco Cay on Wednesday, Key West on Thursday, then fly from Miami back home on Friday. Except for Key West we don't have any personal free time on shore, so it doesn't look like I'll get the chance to swim with dolphins at Nassau...too bad since I've always wanted to do that! I do wish I felt acceptable-looking in any swimsuit, but c'est la vie since there's nothing I can do about that right now anyway. Since I don't need it and connectivity is so expensive, I am NOT bringing a computer with me, which feels very strange. I think the last flight I took where I did not bring my own laptop was September 2005 to Scotland & London! Needless to say, live updates from at sea will be unlikely, unless I find some time and feel like paying a few $$ for a quick post. We'll see how it goes. If not, see you Friday!

P.S. Since it just was a matter of plugging the power back in, the KittenCam is working again for anyone who would like to peek at Ebony & Onyx. After a week with no accidents that I could find, Ebony peed on the down comforter again just as I was leaving the house tonight, so it's been cleaned best it can for now, doused with enzyme and with a rag towel over it, and the comforter is staying there as a barrier against my actual bedspread or linens being ruined if she decides she's punishing me. The joys of being a kitty mom! :P
