Back From the Cruise and Still Listening to SMS

Grand Turks Island on Thanksgiving Day 2007

Well, loyal readers of this blog (yes, both of you =), I'm back from a five-day cruise with all ten members of my immediate family, and I'm happy to report that nobody went overboard - unless you take into account the enormous amount of alkeehaul that my sister Laliqua (AKA Lynnie) downed... We'll see if she is reading my blog!?*#?!! Seriously folks, we had a great time, the weather was fabulous, the ports of call were mahvelous, the food was plentiful, and the sushi was fresh and delicious. The only downside at all (and it is a very minor complaint) is that the internet connection sucked, and was so slow that it was impossible to download Steph and the mooks every day. No biggie, I just waited until I had four hours to kill in the Miami Airport and logged onto to their wi-fi and downloaded the entire week's worth of shows in a few minutes, and, presto, the airport wait immediately became bearable.

Le Beaujolais Nouveau et Arrive

I did however imagine that I was suffering from a few SMS withdrawal symptoms - Steph read them on the air on yesterday's show (top of hour 3). They went something like this:

A Few Symptoms of Stephanie Miller Show Withdrawal (as experienced on a cruise ship with sucky internet access):
--Not being able to walk by the piano bar without thinking "Did Stephanie play that song on her 70s ear worm episodes?"
--Trying to decide when would be the best moment to introduce the Goldwater/Miller campaign as a conversational gambit with my ultra-conservative family.
--Wondering if Stephanie is busy burning the sauerkraut (a Thanksgiving/Holiday tradition at Chez Steph).
--Teaching my nieces and nephew how to sing the "Lying Sack of Crap" song.
--My younger niece kept asking "Why is Auntie Faye making me say 'Charlie Rangel' over and over again?"
--Telling the 57th guy that tried to sell me a coconut monkey adult beverage "The computer says no."

More coming on the recently retiring Trent "Vacant" Lott....Stay tuned...

Now that was really entertaining to read. Hope Lynn doesn't read and decide to include a critical comment. The picture of you and the girls is great.
