I Have No Idea What Day It Is by Melinda the Captain

We're sailing! We are nearly at 47 degrees North and it's getting chillier. Yesterday the whole crew had a bunch of fun. The thingiwhopper that holds the front sail-a-ma-jig broke off and bent some tough-looking metal-thang. This meant that Mike got to play in the dinghy for a few hours in some neat swells. This also meant that Bob got to play in the very front left hold that was once waterproof before he touched it (he hid some hammers in it too).

They both had a glue and bolt party but it got kind of out of hand at one point and Mike threw glue in the ocean. So Josh and I called the party off and got everything back to normal (including the retrieval of the hidden hammers) and we went on our way. (Bob and Mike can be just plain silly sometimes.)

It was pretty cold yesterday so I cooked Roman chicken and roasted potatoes, teriyaki stir-fry, and brownies. It was pretty steamy when I was done. We watched a Star Trek movie last night in an attempt to give Josh some culture. We have 8 more left to go. Or maybe 9?

Today I made grits and decided that I don't like them too much. Josh made eggs and I decided that I like over-easy the best. It seems that tensions are rising among some of the crew with a serious matter involving Uno. Stinkin' cheats.

The End.

Be strong - make them hurt but don't let them cheat!

If you have cheese of any kind, mix it with the cooked grits, sprinkle some cayenne and bake it for 10 min at 350F. Even better with some picante on top.

Bon appetit!

We here in the Antipodes have some experience in thing maritime, and we're worried... We can see the ground is ripe for mutiny, what with Roger the Cabin Boy (or is that Josh?) being held against his will and that Melinda assuming captaincy. The cheating at Uno may seem innocent, but I'll be looking forward to saying "told you so" and "nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah" when things turn pear shaped.

Yours in all insincerity,
The Chis
