Random Tuesday Thoughts...Rum, Rum, Rum


  • I can’t believe Tuesday is here again already.  Where the hell did last week go?  I don’t really care since I’m going to be on holidays in 2.5 days.
  • Puerto Rico here I come.  I’m pretty excited about visiting Puerto Rico – it will be my first time.  Ummm, well technically my second time in Puerto Rico, but this time I’ll actually be able to leave the airport.  So, I’m counting it as the first time.
  •  The last time I was in the Puerto Rican airport, I purchased a hat and as a bonus, it came with two bottles of Cruzan rum!  I KNOW, most times it’s the other way around…but I swear the rum was the bonus gift.  I still have that hat.  The rum…well, not so much.
  • If you haven’t experienced the wonders of Cruzan banana rum (or coconut rum or raspberry rum or orange rum) – you just haven’t lived life to the fullest.  It’s good with any type of juice, beverage, water or taken straight up…your choice.  May I suggest – Sunny D California flavor?
  • I also saw the largest seeing-eye dog ever on my last visit to the airport in Puerto Rico – it was a Great Dane.  The thing was enormous and I swear it stood at least 4 feet tall.  I was a little concerned when the man decided to head into the duty free store with the dog.  All I kept thinking was “thank god it’s not wagging its tail or all that rum breakable stuff doesn’t stand a chance”.
  • I plan on trying my hand at either surfing or boogie boarding while I’m in Puerto Rico.  I’m leaning towards boogie boarding.  I figure I stand more of a chance of staying on the boogie board than I do a surf board.  Either way, I’m not going to look graceful doing it…
  • I haven’t pre-tanned this time around.  I know, I know “those things will cause cancer”.  Having said that, I’m horribly white and pasty and am afraid that I will offend the locals.  Maybe some tan-in-a-can is in order?  What’s a better look – white and pasty or radiation poisoning orange?

as a fellow pale-face I say definitely white and pasty! just apply sun screen to avoid turning into a lobster!

boat drinks yeaterday...rum today..i am sensing a pattern...hope you have a blast...do put the block on so you dont char...surfing sounds fun though..would love to try it sometime my self...
I am also white and pasty. This is a hazard of living in Canada, I think. :) Be sure to wear your sunscreen so you don't burn to a crisp!

When I went to Puerto Rico, I bought this pair of crazy capri pants that I lovingly named my "Puerto Rican Party Pants." Too bad I can't fit in the them anymore. :)

Get the Jergens Natural Glow...I promise there is no orange-ness to it. I use it every day...just before my 1/2 marathon I noticed how frighteningly WHITE my legs were and they didn't look good against black shorts. at. all. Much better now!!

My problem is I always burn. I don't mind a healthy shade of pink, but I never tan. I always wonder what I would look like tan (maybe I should get tan in a can).

Enjoy your trip and happy RTT!

I have never thought of Puerto Rico as a vacation destination. I will have to think about that. Any place that gives rum as a BONUS gift has got to be totally and completely awesome.
I put on sunscreen that was too high I guess. I wanted a tan but it didn't happend at all. I'm an Irish/Polish gal so I'm pretty white and 15 kept me that way.

Oh I am sure you will have so much fun! I so wish I was going too! My problem is my husband doesn't like tropical places as much as I do. I will have to convince him to take me somewhere anyway! I do love flavored rum too! Enjoy!
