Did y'all hear about this? The "Ultimate Design Cruise"?
My first reaction was giddy excitement. A cruise with alleged legends in the repurposing/home decor field? To Miami/Key West/Cozumel? But, then?
1. I realized that I've never heard of any of these people except the Scott Brothers and the Junk Gypsies. Hence, alleged.
2. I am also petrified of open water, and have studiously avoided cruises as if my life depended on it. Hell, I skipped one of my BFF's 50th-birthday celebrations because it was a cruise. (If you want independent scary affirmation that cruises may be a tier of hell, I strongly recommend "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again", by David Foster Wallace, which is probably the best nonfiction I've EVER read.)
3. Miami/Key West/Cozumel are all been-there-done-that on my bucket list. In fact, my hotel in Cozumel caught fire. A sooty toothbrush will scar you for years.
4. What are the odds that all the fellow cruisers would be fun junkers?
Anybody thinking of going? Wanna talk me into it?
