After dinner, the lounge was pretty full with people for movie night.
Last night's feature was "The Big Lebowski". I started off doing pretty
good, then all the sudden I needed to lie down. I got and made it to my
bunk about as quickly as I could. After 10-15 minutes, I was doing much
better, but figured I was in bed for the night. My roommate had just
started watching the first season of Deadwood, so we stayed up for three
episodes until we reached the third disc. It was missing and in it's
place was a sticky with "I have the third disc, Phil". As far as we
know, there is no Phil on board. :(
I didn't sleep too much as I kept sliding around and rolling off my
side. I had also taken a couple of naps that day, so my body had taken
just about all of the lying down that it could. I can only lay in bed
for so long and then my insides seem to get sore. Not sure why, but
keeping my bladder empty seems to help. This was a no-win situation.
The Meclizine was making me very thirsty so I had to drink a lot of
water but then in order to sleep I needed to keep going to the bathroom
every hour which in turn made my stomach unhappy. Needless to say, it
was a VERY long night.
I got out of bed around 0930 this morning and went to the galley to find
some leftovers from breakfast. A few pieces of bacon and a slice of
French toast was all I figured I should eat. I'm writing this from the
lounge on the first deck which has been a chore. I'm in a chair without
casters and I'm still sliding around. Sometimes I have to hold onto the
table, which is bolted down, just to keep from sliding across the room.
The ship is two people short of maximum capacity, but you wouldn't know
it from the number of people not in their bunks. The ship seems fairly
deserted and for good reason. Speaking of which, I think I need to lay
