I am asea

I'm not really blogging today. I am asea, on a cruise in the Caribbean. Blogger lets you write posts in advance and schedule them to publish later on. "Asea" is one of those words that shows up in crosswords way more than in daily conversation. Now that I have a chance to use the word for realz, dammit, I can't pass it up.

So I'm writing this last Thursday night, and it'll go up on the blog on Monday.

1. Happy holidays! Whether that's Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid, Kwanzaa, or the winter solstice, have a good one.

2. Yay, solstice! Sunday, December 21 was the winter solstice. Yes, January and February promise to be miserably wintry in great swaths of the Northern Hemisphere, but at least the days are lengthening bit by bit.

3. Do you think I have mal de mer? I'm using Transderm Scop, the prescription patch for preventing seasickness. I've never been on a boat for more than a couple hours, and never on the open sea, so we'll see how well the family does. (Only OTC Dramamine for the fellas...I'm the Pharmaceutical Phyllis in the family.)

4. I don't really have anything to say. I mean, when it's actually Monday, I'll have plenty to say, but I'm not taking my laptop on the ship because wireless access is, like $42 an hour. I haven't got anything to say on Thursday. I just didn't want the blog to lie fallow for the whole week. And again, ASEA!

Commenting on this post is absurd, but I'm doing it anyway. I hope the TransDerm Scop works for you. I love the stuff, myself. No more queasiness and better sleep than usual.
