27 MAY 2010 - DAY 2 OF 2 SEA DAYS - JUST ANOTHER DAY ON THE WATER
Today was pretty much a ditto of most sea day. No wins at trivia, close, but not quite.
26 MAY 2010 - DAY 1 OF 2 SEA DAYS - AND THE ANSWER FOR THE WIN IS...AEROSMITH!
Today started out like every other sea day-sleep in, eat breakfast, play trivia (and lose like always), eat lunch, take a nap. After this point, things changed a bit. Princess cruise line has a 5K ON DECK FOR THE CURE walk to help raise money for the Susan G. Komen foundation. Jim and I did it 2 years ago. We did it again today, in honor of his sister, Kathy, who just finished treatments for breast cancer. After that we went to our afternoon trivia game. The setup is this: there are about 10 teams each made up of six people, and we are asked 15 questions. The winners get a coupon that can be traded in at the end of the cruise for typical cruise junk like key rings, luggage tags, etc, so we aren’t really playing for any serious prizes, but you wouldn’t know that to see some people’s reactions! Fortunately for Jim and I we are with four other people who are doing this for fun, so when we lose every time it isn’t devastating to us. Today we were doing really well with the questions, and then THE question came up: “What band released the album ‘Just Push Play’”? I immediately knew the answer, because the boys listened to Aerosmith while growing up, and Ben downloaded one of their albums onto my iTunes, and “Just Push Play” is on the album, which means it is on my iPod, so I hear it every so often, which is why I knew the answer. As it turns out we got all 15 questions right, and our team was the ONLY team who knew Aerosmith, which means we won! YAHOO! Needless to say our little humble team was pretty excited!
