Good News – Bad News

by Steve Ray on May 10, 2007

GOOD NEWS — the ship has wireless internet

BAD NEWS — it costs $3.75 to log on and 75 cents a minute to use

GOOD NEWS — I can e-mail and blog with my handheld

BAD NEWS — it will probably only work in port

GOOD NEWS — we CAN keep in touch

BAD NEWS — we might be too busy to keep in touch – working with Catholic Answers, giving talks, exploring, eating good food, wriiting, and being with the 175 great Catholics on this cruise :-) !

Goofy-est Hotel of Our Lives Award

by Steve Ray on May 10, 2007

Shower sm.jpgHere in the Radisson in Rome we have awarded our room the Goofy-est Room Ever Award. Fr. Serpa next door agrees. This room is supposedly "avante gard" but it is really just goofy. The shower is in the  middle of the room encased in the conical cloth shower curtain. It looks like a "beam-me-up-Scotty" shower. We call it our "Moon Unit Room." The light are bags on the wall that blow up with air when you turn them on. No chairs or desk or place for luggage.

The two good things are fast wireless internet and good air conditioning. But when the shower drips all night right next to your head, it wins the Most Irritating Room Award too. Drip, drip, drip . . .

 Today we board the Westerdam and we head out to sea.

What's better than God, worse than Satan, the dead eat it, and if you eat it you'll die?
