From Miami, With Beard

Everett

Hi blogging friends, Everett here. With a lot of my fellow beards in New York with John, it’s a little lonely here at the office, but I’m thankful to at least have a beard on my face, and moving images of them to help warm my heart.

For instance, this one of John, from this morning:

Keep an eye on the blog later this afternoon… we’ll be posting a longer video recap of John’s day in New York. For now, be sure to subscribe to Carnival’s YouTube channel to be the first to know when new John’s videos are posted throughout the day, on top of all the usual fun stuff we share there!

I remember reading an article recently by someone with a beard who wrote that Playstationxboxing is dangerously addictive, and that those who spend hours and hours on them each and every day will eventually end up on top of a tower shooting passers by in the head. I sort of laughed this off thinking that the report was probably commissioned by the makers of Lego or Barbie who sales cannot compete with games like Zombie Cannibal Eaters 4 and the new NBA Miami Heat Xbox game “We Beat Your Arse You Punk B**ch Lakers. ”

Maybe it was the seven-hour flight delay. Maybe it was arriving back from the sun to a country totally paralyzed by snow, a country that has survived the Germans and terrorists yet is paralyzed by a bit of white fluffy stuff. It could have been the fact that because there is snow on the roads Amazon couldn’t guarantee the delivery of Kye’s Christmas gift which meant I had to drive 30 miles to the big Bluewater Shopping Mall…..whatever the reason it caused me a rare case of consumer rage.

It took a lot of digging and asking around, but I finally managed to piece together the full story on the secret New York event. I am sure the top beards at Carnival will get their knickers in a twist for me telling you prior to getting their approval but hey…………..it’s Christmas.

So um………………here are all the details:

Bearded Q&A (Part 3)

Eric the Beard

Hello my dearest blogger folks, Eric the Beard here. As I sit here with all of my clothes on, eating a giant bowl of teriyaki tofu, it just occurred to me how nice it’s been getting to know all of you these last few days. Your comments have touched the beards of both Everett and I in ways you’ll never know, and we seriously appreciate how you’ve welcomed us with open arms, no questions asked (besides the 50 or so that have come in these last few days 🙂 )

Hi, I’m John, and this is my blog. So please don’t mistake my opinions — or those of my dear friends, fans or commenters — for those of Carnival Cruise Line or Carnival Corporation. My apologies in advance for anything I may say that upsets you, but this disclaimer covers Carnival and puts the blame directly on me………….. bugger.
