Fabulous Friday!

What's so fabulous you ask?  Well yesterday I got a call from someone wanting to go on a cruise and you know me, I'll cruise at the drop of a hat so off I go in two weeks!  Yee haw!  The only sad thing about it is the duck can't go.  He doesn't have any more time off work.  That's too bad because he is lots of fun on a ship, he likes to do the same stuff I do.

Thank you for all the helpful hints on yesterday's post about my hunger.  I did get through it and I am fine now.  And I did not go over my calories either.  But I will be having cake on the ship.  Don't worry, I'll take a photo of it and show you.

I read that later this month Virgin Mobil is going to offer an iPhone 4S with no contract and unlimited data and texting with 300 minutes for $30.00 with a credit/debit card guarantee and five dollars more without.  More minutes for slightly more money and unlimited calls pretty cheap too.  Anyway I have had my cell phone service since the mid 80's and had the same number all that time.  I am going to see if I can keep my number and may change if so.  

Today is Friday so it's my day off.  The duck and I are having lunch though.  And hopefully it won't be rainy so I can swim a bit.  It's been rainy here pretty much all week.  And I need to get moving on those new beads.  I'll show you that soon.  They are fabulous!

Hope your Friday is as good as mine.


  1. awwwwwwwwwwwwww, so nice that someone knew who to call to go cruising.
    I need to know more about the Virgin Mobil iPhone.
    sounds interesting.
    Can't wait to see the beads. I have a bracelet design that I should send to you and see if you might like to make it ?

    By the way, thehamish is battling the washing machine on Friday so be sure to check it out.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. Bee -

    Another cruise already? "Hello, my name is Empress Bee and I am a Cruiseaholic" :-)

    As to your phone number, assuming you are out of contract with your existing carrier, you should be able to port the number over to Virgin Mobile.

    Good luck


  3. You mean all I have to do is call and you'll go?! hahaha! Fabulous! And it's great to hear that you're doing beading again! I can not tell you how much I love opening my drawer to choose which earrings I'll wear each day! yesterday was the navy and white ones you made just before my last cruise. The day before was the "You are my Sunshine" ones my sister Lynda asked to to make for us. Today? I don't know yet, but they will make me smile!

    Have a loverly day! big hugs xoxo

  4. I am so happy for you that you are going cruising again! Lucky Girl!

  5. YAY a cruise is good and so are you staying within your calories!

  6. Dear cruise queen,er , I mean Bee,LOL. Wish I could go too.waa. I am so happy for you. Enjoy your lunch with the duck. You will be taking smaller clothes on this cruise.:):):) xo, Susie

  7. A cruise would be fun! Have fun eating lunch with the Duck. I can't wait to see those pretty beads.

  8. Enjoy your fabulous Friday Auntie Bees and we are sending you our daily fuzzy furry hug

  9. Have a wonderful day off! So excited that you will be cruising again so soon, will look forward to your cruise posts. Enjoy the weekend. Hugs!

  10. Good for you on the cruise and I'll stand by for that picture of the cake you're going to have. Awesome.

    I knew you'd get through your hunger yesterday. I didn't have one doubt. I can so relate though. Tough times 22.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from sunny California. :)

  11. Yay for another cruise booking! I know you'll have fun...and share with us who are staying behind. Sniff, sniff.

    I don't know any details about Virgin Mobile, but assume the phone is usable all around the world? That is why I have stayed with AT&T, although their coverage in the US is not stellar.

    Big hugs, honey...

  12. Good to read that a friend wants to go on a cruise, your favorite thing in the whole wide world.

    Sorry the duck can't join you this time.

    Hope your Friday evening is nice! I'm so glad the weekend is here! Been a busy, busy week.

  13. So glad you have an upcoming cruise to look forward to, aren't they they best. Tomorrow James and I head home, but with a new Tempurpedic bed, I might not leave it all day Sunday :)

    Big Hugs,


  14. Excellent idea to cruise again. No time like the present to have a little joy and you do love to cruise!

  15. Be careful, Bee. I have a Virgin Mobile Internet Card for my computer when we are in Florida and I have an awful time with it. You can check online to see what level of service they get at the locations you use the most. I know that NW Cape Coral is the worst level they have, but did not know it when I bought the card and rented the house. Duh!


you know i love comments, don't be shy! and if you are a spammer that got through, buggers to you. get a life somewhere else!
