1937 – 2008
I would have posted this Celebrity Death sooner, but the on-board internet service was too expensive and I'm a cheap SOB.
So yes, comedian, actor and funny SOB, George Carlin disembarked this world the same day our cruise ship disembarked the Port of San Pedro. I saw the CNN report the next morning while figuring out how to use the treadmill in the ship's fitness center. That was the first and last day I went to the fitness center. I ran one other morning around the fourth deck jogging track but figured I got enough exercise on the Mazatlan walking tour, and the Puerto Vallarta snorkeling trip, and walking up and down the stairs on the ship to justify not doing any other "formal" work outs.
But enough about me. I'll do a vacation update (with photos!) later in the week. Right now I've got actual work to do. I know-it sucks.
Be it known that George Carlin is dead, and that sucks too.
