Is that a shark?

Tweet I actually used the ship’s treadmill’s every day of the seven day cruise I was on. I’d like to say that it was because I had a fitness goal, but in reality I used it to justify eating the 24 hour available soft ice cream. Something’s are important. I was listening to my IPOD.. read more →

I Love Mondays
