Getting ready on my last day here  
So tomorrow I will be leaving on my trip finally. I'm still trying to catch up with everything. I feel much better today. I think I had a caffeine withdraw yesterday. I called Mike and he apologized for not coming over. He said something came up at work. He promised he will come today at 3pm. So I need to get ready for that. It's cold right now. The nights have been in the 50's which is too much. See you have to be careful what you wish for. But I was specific hehe. I said days in the low 80s and nights in the 70's. Please deliver that correctly. I had to sleep with pants. But at least it's not burning up in the house now. I have a very narrow temp range where I'm comfortable. It's around 77-82.

So I have to change all the papers today and put up instructions on the walls near the cages and plant shelves about what needs to be done. Bullet was good yesterday and stuffed her crop full of seeds. I hope she'll do that everyday. But she's becoming a bit of a pain now that she's flying. She wanted to come out so bad. When I let her out she crashes and won't play on the play gym. She likes the service window or worse the chandelier. I may let the other budgies out to show her what to do but I don't want her to learn about the curtain rod just yet. But I should because they may teach her how to go back to her cage. She doesn't come to me anymore. But I can pick her up or grab her with no problems.

I have to start packing. Probably after I do the bird papers. I'm hoping I can fit everything into one bag, but since this is a longer trip than last year's we may need two bags. I'd rather only have one to check in but we'll see. I'll do my best to condense everything. I have my list all ready to go so I won't forget anything. We watched a documentary about our ship yesterday which got Chris all excited. It was on youtube and you can see it HERE.

This is my Rockstar Social Club Account. I hope you can see it without being logged in. And here is my Snapmatic photo gallery on the same site. I hope these show up without you guys needing an account. I know some game sites are jerks and you can only view if you register, like Sims 3. It didn't used to be that way. So now for some pics of George both from the Snapmatic and from my camera.

George and his truck. I like you can take pics of yourself.

George at Chris's apartment. He looks sad for some reason. I have his default expression set to angry so that's weird he came out that way.

George likes sodas. Here are some of the neat sodas in the game. This is one of the gas stations. There's E Cola (Hee hee), Sprunk and I think Orange O's.

This is the side view in the creation engine. He looks best from the side and most like my George but so many things wrong still. Best hair though I hate those stupid anime bangs in his eyes. WHy is it so hard to find shoulder length hair brushed straight back? And blue eyes. Ugh I hate it. And too skinny.

I love these Chrstimas lights shaped like cactus, seahorse, anchors and octopus.

Big giant truck! This is my dream vehicle. I have wanted one of these babies for years now! So I got one for George. Four doors and a huge long bed for hauling lots of furniture...or dead bodies. This is the Vapid Sandking XL.

Ophidius and George in the game. Ophidius turned out better. His suit is more accurate and so is his face over all. George has major issues. When slot three opens I may make Cope or Solan. The glasses in the game suck though so I don't know about that for Cope.

Ok so I may make more posts today as the day goes on. I hope I will have internet on the ship. I will certainly try to get it. I know it's going to be a huge rip off but I need it. I don't like being disconnected. I will mostly be here on LJ. I will type stuff offline then go on long enough to post then log out. I may be on DA to but probably not. My email is budgie_butts at yahoo do com if you guys have to absolutely reach me for an emergency or anything. I will be on Oasis of the Sea by Royal Caribbean. I heard about this one couple that locked themselves on their balcony. They had to use their cell phone which cost a lot to call back to Europe. Their friend then called Royal Caribben which called the ship and they were let back in like two hours later. Lucky they had their phone. That's nuts. We won't. We'll have it but I don't think it will work outside of the United States so email and LJ is the only way to reach me. I'll be able to read replies to my posts but I probably won't be able to reply until I get back. I can't wait. Ok I need to say good bye on DA now and get back to work.

Current Mood: Excited

Yeah you have to be logged in to see that site. That sucks. I like how you made George though and I love his truck!
Hope you have an awesome adventure! I'll keep an eye out for your posts here.

Oh that sucks. Well thanks for telling me. Then I don't know what the point of putting my visibility to "Everybody" is in my settings.
You think he's ok? At least since I mostly see him from behind it's not so bad. I love his truck too! Gosh I want a real one.
Thanks. Just got up am so groggy but so much to do still. I can't wait to get on the ship and totally relax.

I have been busy as hell in the last weeks but I'm doing much much better now (I had my not-so-awesome checkup thing and I'm totally fine *YEAH* I'm so happy). So I hope I will be able to post and comment more again. :)

I wish you a lot of fun for your trip, have a great time!
When we were doing our trips with the cruise ships there was internet available always but it was very expensive, around 12 USD per hour so we never tired it. But you might have Free Wifi at some of the places you are going to visit, maybe you can upload posts then from there. But it can be nice to have "vacation from technology" also, it makes internet even better when getting home again.

I'm very happy to hear you are healthy. That is awesome news. Thank you for commenting.

I thin it will be very nice. Oh gosh actually 12 an hour sounds cheap. I think we have to pay 35. But I will do it. I need my technology I'm a nerd. Heheh. But don't worry my use will be very little.

I think George looks quite okay, considering the limitations you had to work with.

Oh, I am glad Mike is coming over. No doubt it will be getting cold by 3 pm. I'm glad Bullet is eating, so I think she will be okay while you are gone.

Very exciting. Have a good trip! I'll look for you on lj.

George!! Yay! And yeah that is a VERY big truck. Awesome.

Happy travels!

Thought I'd poke in and say hi a bit.

Oh gosh I JUST found this. Sorry I wasn't ignoring you. HEhe yeah, I love his truck.
I had a blast on this trip. Just check the tag for Cruise. And lots of stuff about George.
