SWEET JEEBUS I AM SO EXCITED TO BOARD THAT CRUISE SHIP.
And to really get your faces deep down in there, I thought I'd tell you a little bit more about it, because I don't know about you, but it's really cold here in Massachusetts, and I bet nothing will cheer you up more than hearing about how warm I'm going to be.
I'll be departing for FRIENDLY PLANET TRAVEL'S IBERIAN COASTS CRUISE on Feb. 10, when the good, good, gah bless their souls people of Friendly Planet Travel fly me and my husband to Milan. You know, that place in Italy? With, like, fashion and shit? Anyway, that's just what I've heard.

The next morning, B and I will be exploring Malaga, Spain and all those pesky beaches and palm tree-lined streets and ancient cathedrals and, I'm willing to bet, some sweet, sweet wine and delicious tapas. Later, rinse, repeat.
