OK. The cruise doesn't board until tomorrow but I'm currently sitting in a metal tube hurtling through the sky at 685 km/h somewhere 10000 metres over Nebraska so I figure my vacation has officially started. There's solid cloud cover so I can't watch the landscape drift by, I don't want to watch any shows or movies, and I'm not in the mood to read my book either. So I figured I'd start a "Live from..." thread a day early.   I'm going into this cruise with pretty much nothing planned in
