Captains Log. Day 11 at Sea. 0 11 hundred hours. Mutiny on the Bounty.

Captains Log. Day 11 at Sea. 011 hundred hours. Mutiny on the Bounty.

As we turn the page on the 11th day at sea, with no sign of the Asian ping pong table occupation abating, crew, staff and passengers are becoming increasingly anxious as dining staff move tables outside in order for the Asians to eat whilst continuing their hard core competition. This unfortunate development can only mean one thing. We MAY have a mutiny on our hands as various factions of crew and guests continue occupations of their own in protest.

Greeks are busy occupying the casino with newfound ferver, while Brits occupy the shit out of afternoon tea, having effectively blocked all access to cucumber sandwiches and petifours. The ship's security has attempted to break these blockades unsuccessfully with the use of olive oil spray and baguettes but the Brits are not backing down. Aussies continue to occupy the pool and have spread their occupation to include all four hot tubs and even the sauna. No one is safe from their uncontrollable disdain for US sports and Americans are repeatedly forced to acknowledge that we have way too many commercials. Only time will tell how this growing protest unfolds but we will be sure to report back with the latest breaking developments.

In other news, we crossed the equator relatively unscathed with only minor injuries (to our pride and dignity) by being doused with whip cream by a man dressed up as a Greek goddess. When in Rome...

I have also met North America's largest distributor of black pearls, located right in my own backyard in Midtown Manhattan. Interesting guy, his son is a member of the band Anthrax and his daughter in law is the daughter of Meatloaf! So he and Meatloaf are grandfathers together. Joked about naming the kid meatball (can't make this shit up). Exchanged cards to see what sort of deals we can make for a supply of black pearls for my now growing jewelry line. A very useful connection indeed.

Captain signing off. Over and out for now. More updates to follow.
