The Most Important Room

I left a very important video out of the last blog post:

Despite the small size, the bathroom was well appointed and very comfortable.

I especially looked forward to showering in the "Star Trek Tube". The water was plentiful and hot, and the water pressure was great.

For an added thrill, use it on 15 foot seas. Some fun!

Our Home At Sea

Bob and I completely enjoyed our Anniversary Cruise on Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas.

Here is our home at sea:

I love the little slip of the tongue Captain Per makes when describing the Ice Show. Can you catch it?

There is nothing like looking out your window and seeing the sea:

I've also got pictures up on Flickr. They aren't yet organized and commented, but I have to go to work. I'll get to it.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy our view of our home at sea.

Waiting To Disembark

Bob and I had a relaxing, refreshing time away from it all on our 7 night cruise. We're waiting comfortably in our cabin until it's time for our group to leave the ship. This is the view from our balcony. So nice!

A New Season

The 2010 Spring Semester wrapped up for me this past Saturday with 4 hours of woodwind juries. The students played well, and the time was made even more enjoyable by the enthusiasm and musical insight of my colleagues. I made the FINAL COMMUTE home, turned in my final grades, and did the happy dance. Well, I would have done the happy dance if I hadn't been so fried from the pressure and stress of the last week of classes. Instead, I took a nap. Geezer!

Anne Frank rehearsals begin next Thursday. Without the commute and long hours of teaching, I've got plenty of time to work out, clean house, AND practice opera. What a concept. Of the three, practicing is the only thing that gets done with any regularity during the school year.

Bob and I are especially looking forward to our anniversary cruise a week from Sunday. As I mentioned before, the pleasure of anticipating this cruise has been worth the price already.

One of the things I've come across in my months of anticipation is this video of a cabin similar to ours on the Mariner of the Seas. I especially appreciate the, um, enthusiastic camera technique:

I have to say, he captures my feeling of excitement if nothing else.

And if May is here, can Muni Band be far behind?

I am so enjoying the promise of this new season.
