Hahaha...

That's where we are different...

I have no problem washing my hands & using paper towels...

I can't tell for sure, from the pic - but I'm not about to put my hands in a machine like this... 

When I don't know what everyone else's hands were like before they put them in & then they touch the sides, etc...

 

Try it once - the machines are awesome - it squirts a kind of liquid soap and then tunnels of water. You use paper towel to dry afterwards.

 

My hands have never felt so clean. It's a like a facial for your hands. I was obsessed with using these on the Sunshine.

It's elegant night, so I have to wear pants if I want to eat in the MDR...

I bought myself a new shirt for my birthday... Dwight Schrute from the Office... It's called a thousand ways to die...

I was in need of some afternoon motivation, so I went to the secret coffee place at ocean plaza and ended up with the strongest coffee I've ever had in my life...

Hopefully I even survive until the bottom of the cup...

I always hit the coffee bar up by mid afternoon, myself, as I start to need a lift around that time of day. But, Lordy, if I have caffeine after 5pm!! Up all night! Had 2 glasses of ice tea yesterday at 4:30. Thought it was still early enough, but I was up ALL night! Put some ribs in crock pot at 4:30am—LoL! 😳

Ok, the Dwight shirt is the coolest thing I’ve seen in some time!  Well done 👍🏻 👍🏻

Loving the shirt.

 

Annamaria was our bartender on Horizon last July. Like you, we are big believers in the “tip upfront and wait for drink magic...”. I love espresso martinis, which they don’t make. She told me that if I got her a coffee from Java Blue (and brought one for her to drink also), she’d make me one. The pre-dinner coffee date with Annamaria became our thing for the rest of the cruise.  She is fantastic, and really good to her team also. I loved meeting her!

Annamaria whipped me up something extra spicy just now at Alchemy...

Really spicy, indeed...

I've seen this bottle of fancy Grey Goose behind the bar several times, but I've never tasted it... I figured, what the h€ll, when in Rome...

The glass was filled all the way to the top... At least I'm getting my money's worth...

The new (or, maybe not so new?) menu at the Alchemy Bar... I'll probably be trying all these out before the end of the week...

And, the free snacks...

It was pretty good, and I'm not a big fan of vodka...

You sound like me! I carry them everywhere! Especially on a cruise. Also, have I told you about the hand sanitizer Zoono? It’s a foam 24hour hand sanitizer, and the only OTC sanitizer that is effective against Norovirus. I order mine from Amazon. It’s about $6 per bottle. As a retired RN, I’m a HUGE germaphobe! 

Clorox hand sanitizer also kills noro.  I get a four pack before family cruises. It's around $20 for four on amazon.

Annamaria,'s "worst margarita" as she called it... Pretty good, although I've never seen blueberries in a margarita... Then again, the best things are often found in the most unexpected places...

And, here's the picture that I forgot that I even took... That giant glass of vodka must be doing it's thing...

Sid, I know you got the drink package...are all of these drinks included, or are you paying for some on top of the package?

I have to say, I feel like you are holding back a little - waiting until after lunch for a drink? What's that all about? LoL

SId, you’ve certainly got to be feeling the effects of that Grey Goose. Is that the one that’s like $20 a drink?

I hadn’t heard that Clorox had one. Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll check it out.

I'm a whiskey, tequila, mezcal drinker but I do like that particular Grey Goose.

There's a lady at my table from Kentucky... She's shaking that saltshaker upside down like crazy to try and get more salt out of there... They may just have to bring her a giant box of salt...

Another girl (lady) at my table is from Colorado... She's been talking about the legal marijuana for the last twenty minutes... Apparently, it cures everything, and it's the answer to all the world's problems...
