Fricking Laser Beams: Laugh Link

Fricking Laser Beams

I am generally a kind & supportive person in all aspects of my life. So when my sister in law needed me to take her to the P&O ship (boat?) Pacific Dawn on the weekend, I obliged. Family and all that, right?


This is her first overseas trip. A huge milestone!


Naturally we wanted to support her in this new adventure.


Somehow, and I really, honestly, genuinely don’t know how, the conversation in the car turned to sharks.


And Ebola.


And fricking laser beams.


Supportive, right?


I still say that a conversation about being attacked by Ebola sharks with fricking laser beams is nicer than our original plan, which was to give her a copy of Titanic as we dropped her off. Themed going away present and all.


What would you give someone going overseas & on a cruise for the first time?

  1. You hear so many horror stories with cruise ships at the moment but my inlaws go on at least two trips a year but apart from putting on a stack of weight due to the all you can eat buffets, nothing ever happens to them.

    I would love to go on a short cruise but hubby goes to sea with work and gets seasick so he will not entertain the idea. Perhaps I need to go on my own but where is the fun in that. Hubby leaves on Thursday for a month at sea, I’m rather nervous at how much I have on while he is away, especially with our three girls at three different schools. I might need to hire a hubby or a taxi driver.

      I like the concept of being forced to relax, because I’m so terrible at relaxing – but at the same time I think that it would just be too many people around me. I would try a 3 day cruise but I don’t think any longer would suit me.
      Sounds like you need a nanny to help out in the mornings!! (Or all day!)

  2. Meh, Titanic would be ok. After all, she survived, escaped into a whole new identity and took a super expensive necklace with her.

      That’s true.

  3. Oh I hate the idea of a cruise ship. (Stuck with the same people for weeks on end!) Plus I get seasick on large vessels.

    I think the Titanic was an excellent idea. The Poseidon Adventure (original or remake) DVD would have been handy as well – cos it informs them how to work out how to crawl out of the ship when it’s turned upside down. #justsayin

    1. I’ve never had seasickness, but I’ve also only ever been on ferries and other smallish vessels. I think I’d like a cruise if it was only about 50% sold out 🙂

      Oh I wish I had thought of The Poseidon Adventure haha. That would have totally freaked her out 🙂

  4. Bahahhaa! Sharks with lasers may not have been supportive but it would have been bloody hilarious and sometimes that’s a blessing too 🙂

      No time to be actually nervous when you know you’re being mocked 🙂

  5. A life-jacket AND a copy of Titanic. Perfect. I hate boats, personally and can’t stand the thought of a cruise. *shudders*

      Haha or those floaty arm things kids get 🙂

  6. Dude, you forgot to mention Somali pirates. That shit is GLOBAL now!

      Ah, of course! She could have taken some rum to barter with.

  7. Oh I would have gone with Titanic too. Or a docco on the Costa Concordia!
    Seriously though I’d give a friend one of those seasickness wristbands. That can ruin your whole cruise, they reckon.

      Ooh Costa Concordia…damn I should have asked what to give before the cruise! So many ideas I didn’t even think of.
      Being seasick & on the boat for a week would be horrible!

  8. You meanie you, a funny meanie though. I would have hopped in their suitcase and popped out mid-cruise and scared the shit out of them! x

      Haha I don’t know, 4 girls, one small cabin…kind of my idea of hell lol

  9. Love, exciting and new… can’t talk cruising without mentioning the Love Boat! I’d be sending her off with warnings about a possible overly amorous ship doctor, afro-haired therapist bartender, perky activities director or possible C list celebrity passengers. Scary stuff.
