I keep putting off planning any sort of vacation as I don’t know what my ‘status’ will be at the time. We all know that it will inevitably still be ‘single’, but whatever. I was wanting to go on another cruise in order to try to erase the memories of my horrific last cruise. Awesome to sail away on a 7 day cruise happy as a clam knowing that you have the man of your dreams at home waiting for me, who had just declared his certainty that I’m the one a scant 4 days prior to my leaving; being uber well behaved the entire trip and missing him terribly (while he fills my text and e mail messages with pretty pictures of our amazing future together) only to arrive back home and into the arms of the man who will dump me in 3 days because he’s not over his psycho-key-weilding-next-door-neighbor-ex. Uhm, what? I think I deserve a great vacation after that one!
Here’s the thing. I love going on cruises. Not only because they are economical and awesome in that you don’t have to arrange for dining, hotels, bail money ……..oh wait. Really I think they’re awesome ’cause I can get shit faced drunk and not have to deal with driving home! 🙂 Yey me! They’re also very easy for a single person to go on. I always meet great people and even if I don’t, I get a great tan! Problem is that in order to reserve a single room, they charge you double. I ‘get’ the economics of that, but still think it sucks as it will cost me the same to go by myself as it would to take someone with me. I want to go in August. 4 months from now. I’m thinking I should book a cruise for 2 and then when August rolls around and I am inevitably still single I will either hold a lottery with my friends to see who can/wants to join me or I will sail away as a lame ‘single’ once again.
I think it just makes good economic sense to plan for someone (anyone?) to come along, right? Or maybe I’m just being optimistically moronic……….. really, all they’d have to pay for is a plane ticket and their bar bill 🙂 I’m just sayin…….
