Words will never begin to express how much I love my WALL-E.

As with any Pixar movie I was apprehensive, especially when I found out their latest hit was a robot flick.

I do not like robots.

I don't like A.I. or I Robot or World of the Wars or whatever where robots take over the universe.

No I do NOT like robots.

But let me tell you something...I love WALL-E.

They started showing WALL-E on the boat and it took me a good 4 months before I even let the channel linger on it for more than 1 min.

Then 1 min became 5...then 10 ....then 15 min.

Then I knew I had to stop because I was watching it all out of sequence and was very confused.

Fast forward to Christmas '08.

Jeff gave me WALL-E and I screamed so loud people on my hall told me I woke them up.

I have never hugged a DVD before.

I hugged my WALL-E DVD.

I watched it that night and fell in love with him and MO all over again.

You see my whole life I have loved holding hands with people.

Guess who else loves that....WALL-E.

WALL-E lives for holding hands.

Some people don't like to hold hands (Jeff Griggs) and make comments like "Doesn't your hand get sweaty?"

The answer is No.

WALL-E is so considerate.

He always wants everyone around him to feel loved.

Even when he gets really sick at the end...he still introduces himself to MO.

Oh I love MO.

Anyone who owns the DVD should watch all the special features.

There was pretty much only one old man who created all the sounds for the entire movie and he is adorable and the way he goes about making the sounds is AMAZING.

I was really really upset when WALL-E didn't take home oscars for sound.

That man deserved it.

I mean there is hardly any talking in WALL-E.

The movie is dependent on those amazing sounds.

The other day I was talking to myself and Jeff was like "What are you doing?"

I got embarressed.

"I was practicing my WALL-E impersonation" I said sheepishly.

Jeff smiled.

Since then he has said numerous times that my WALL-E impersonations are dead on.

I will continue to tell the world about WALL-E.

I love him so very very much.

Obsessed...w/ this picture!

I squealed with delight every time I saw this photo on the news.

I'm not a big animal lover but I love Sam the koala.

The Last Straw...

I am currently sitting in Miami Airport.

After much ado about nothing I have disembarked from my cruise ship and am officially on holiday as my British friends would say.

I love my job and will be going on another ship in 6 weeks so stay tuned for more blogs!

It was weird because it took me a while to realize I was going to actually be leaving the ship.

After 8 consecutive months I was finally getting off.

I'm a little sad.

I already miss everyone.

But I'll tell you one thing.....

I don't miss mean passengers.

The following is an excerpt of a conversation I heard while waiting in line at the reception desk on the boat.

Allow me to set the scene.

It was the final day of the cruise so there was an exceptionally long line at reception.

I was waiting with my Guest Ella to get a print out of her bill.

It was around 9pm.

A woman who is probable 33 but looks like she is 40 cuts the entire line and goes up to the reception desk out of breathe and out of control.

Rude Woman: "My key card isn't working and I'M TIRED.

Reception: Yes Ma'am I'm helping these people right now and there is a line.


Reception: Yes Ma'am there is a line thank you.

Rude Woman proceeds to stand aghast and makes one of the ugliest faces I have ever seen in my life.

She then cuts everyone and tries to get the line on her side but shouting "I mean can you believe this all I want is to go to bed. I mean I'm tired!!!!!"


It was like watching a 4 year old throw a tantrum.

I will not miss her.
