I have mailed out over 20 postcards and cards in the last few days. I've heard back from a couple folks that they got them, but I had one returned - unfortunately, the Canada Post automated scanning picked up the postal code on my return address tag instead of the addressee. I dropped it back in the mail - I've never had *that* happen before!

In completely unrelated news, I'm doing something new this weekend. I will be going on a cruise with a bunch of my girlfriends.

Ok, it's a mini turn around cruise - just to re-position the ship. It's one night, so less that 24 hours on board - Vancouver to Seattle and then we're catching the bus home. But it's a taste of what it would be like. I already think I'd like to go on a longer one.

One of the gals I'm going with has never been to Seattle even through she's lived in Vancouver her whole life, so she wants to go to the Space Needle before we go home. I've always wanted to go to the EMP, but our bus leaves at 1 and it doesn't really feel like enough time to fully appreciate it.

I am hoping that it will be a nice break after the hectic craziness of life with renos.

Sounds like fun and a good way to see what a cruise might be like :)

I think I will like it - I like being on the Ferry over to the Island and that's less than 2 hours, so I'm sure this will be fun.

I haven't gotten mine yet, but I'm sure I will.

Have a wonderful time on the cruise.

Would you mind letting me know if it arrives? I think yours actually was the one that came back - it went back into the mail Tuesday, and I just want to make sure it got to you.

OMG, I love to cruise. If you find you like it and want to go on a longer one, think if me. (Single supplement is a bitch.) I've been to Alaska and the western Caribbean, and both trips were wonderful.

Have a fabulous time!!!

I am pretty sure I will want to go again. I don't like really hot, so I don't think the Caribbean would ever work for me, but I love the idea of Alaska. I'm not crazy about SoCal, but doing the San Diego to Vancouver run sounds like fun as well.

What is that island across from Vancouver? Victoria? Had a good time there, too, on the Alaska cruise.

The Caribbean wasn't hot as in unbearable. It was December and a pleasant change from Minnesota (practically everything is). Stepping into the ocean and expecting a chill, and being WRONG. In Minnesota, a jump into water is followed by paddlng furiously, trying to get warm. The Caribbean in December was warm like bathwater. I loved it.

I've never had *that* happen before!

I had an envelope full of magazines that I was sending to Sri Lanka returned because I'd recycled an envelope, and even though I had clearly written "TO" and "FROM" by the addresses, (one on either side of the envelope) and put Jersey postage stamps on the Sri Lanka address side - enough to get a heavy envelope to Sri Lanka - they had chosen to read the wrong address.

Gah, that would be *so* annoying! I hope the re-sent it without charging you again!

It came back TWICE before they sent it properly, but yes, I didn't pay again.

You're coming south and want to see EMP? You should stay an extra day and go back on Bolt Bus or something! We could provide crash space, and transport to/from downtown.

I have to be back to work Monday - and we've all got Bolt Bus tix for the 1 pm bus back. The ship gets in at around 8am, so it just isn't enough time to really do anything.

Personally, I could probably kill a couple hours just wandering around Uwajimaya, and it's literally down the street from the Bolt Bus. Dunno what I'll do yet.

Thanks for the offer - that's great to know if I do it again.
