Sunrise, Kangaroo and Elephant

Being on the port side (I know what that means now) of the ship, and now that we are heading south down the coast, we are able to see the sunrise from our room. So this morning we got up at about 5.30am to watch it…

The sexy legs competition was held today after being postponed due to bad weather a couple of days ago. In this event, men were required to stut about and humiliate themselves in front of a panel of female judges. Yuko was very excited and took a lot more pictures that I did, but this is the general scene…

I have decided that I want to be an antisocial bastard for the remainder of the cruise, and to that end I asked our head waiter if we could have a table to ourselves at dinner. He obliged, thus freeing us from the boring conversations and long silences we have had to endure in sharing a table with two other couples. I was very happy indeed! And for dinner Yuko ate Kangaroo!

After dinner we drank martinis again…

When we finally returned to our room, we found an elephant on the bed…

Optical Humiliation

I went to the NSAS NAG Meeting tonight (although I’m not really a ‘NA’). This is the meeting where people are encouraged to bring their telescopes for others to gawk at and to discuss problems and techniques.

Later, when I showed Yuko the picture below, she laughed out loud at my tiny instrument standing beside such an enormous tube. It’s true that in the world of telescopes, size matters. However, it was only moderately humiliating.

When I arrived home, Yuko was heating her tea in a bizarro manner…
