Default It's minus 25 and I bought a bathing suit!!

OK, so the cold weather has finally sent me over the edge. Today I went shopping (it was too cold to do anything else!) and I came home with a brand new bathing suit for next November's cruise! Don't ask how I found a bathing suit in Montreal in January, but I did, and I got a good deal too! Now if it would only hurry up and get to Nov. so I can try it out on the QM2!!

Donna,
You go girl. It's too cold here right now for suits. Trip, pack one, it's supposed to warm up. 90 days and it will be spring.

, Mike! We want pictures!!! <G>

Donna, last week I ordered two bathing suits through Landīs End for an upcoming spa weekend. I checked the stores but only found bikinis that I probably wouldnīt even had worn when I was 18. When the suits arrived, I tried them on and felt like such a dork doing so in the dead of winter! Heck, they fit!

Donna, have a great time. Not sure how you found a suit, either. I also have had great luck with Lands End. And I can try on the suits in the comfort of my own home. Mike, I like your sense of humor. At first I thought you were serious and was wondering why you would post the site. So I could have been one of these to try it, lol. Keep it up. Laughter really is the best medicine.

OMG MIke, we have to endure a "Mike in a Thong" on Serenade. Will have to order 'da Coot" one too I guess. Then we can scare everyone off. Would order one for me, but they don't make thongs in XXL size.

Think you should put that suit on, turn up the heat to "tropical 80's" and try it out, Donna! Get someone to bring you drinks on a tray and you'll *really* be happy!

Ahhh, I love buying things off season. It usually means clearance!!! The other day I found an awesome spring dress marked down to $20 from $62 and am going back later to get a dressier one I saw also for $20...anyway, I've never been to Lands End. I don't think we have one here? Will have to check their web site...
