Since everybody likes Smisty so much better than me all of a sudden, I'm replacing her with Bryan until you all apologize.

Erik & Bryan's Titanic Adventures!
Because we're both fat, you see.

And also, because we went here:

Titanic The Experience

In the early days of our courtship, Bryan and I were looking for something romantic and indoors to do, possibly involving a large number of people dying. So where else could we go??

This is the best part of the exhibit, because at this point you still have your illusions.

I am Mr. Eugene Daily, 3rd Class Passenger. I enjoy dancing a jig, and being locked in the steerage sections of sinking cruise ships.

Bryan paid extra (I made that up) to be a fancy-pants Second Class Passenger, a one Mr. Joseph Laroche. But they fooled him, because they made him a black guy. Ha ha, Bryan, you're dead!

"You gentlemen know that you're grown adults, right?"

He then quizzed us on how much we'd been paying attention by making us guess which way the boat in the painting was sailing...?!

Somehow, we passed.

So we got to see this junk.

I'm sorry, I shouldn't call it junk.

What's an old-timey word for junk?

Like, crapola?

We kept telling them that we needed separate bedrooms, but they didn't believe us!
26IMG_0945.jpg
I don't think there were that many exit signs on the real Titanic. (Or maybe that was the problem...?!)
28IMG_0951.jpg
Ah, there's nothing I enjoy more than looking at stairs that I'm not allowed to climb!

This ghostly voice was recovered from the wreckage of the Titanic. It now haunts Titanic The Experience here in Orlando.
40IMG_0967.jpg
Oh my god, it's Edith! And she's going to crash us!

I'm just kidding. This place sucks.
42IMG_0974.jpg
Hey, I lived! Sweet!

Let's check in on the black dude....
44IMG_0975.jpg
Oh, I'm sorry, Bryan. Better luck next time.
57IMG_0989.jpg
I don't think I've ever seen a model of a destroyed thing before. Neat...?
63P2052247.JPG
Bryan, no! We'll get kicked out!

Um...on second thought, touch away.
65P2042233.JPG
The gift shop is a little sparse.

I'm not just being my usual witty self, by the way. That's pretty much the look of the whole "gift shop."
67IMG_0932.jpg
Okay, but seriously, can *you* tell which way this ship is sailing? It's devilishly clever! If you think you know the answer, write it down on a clean sheet of 4x6.2 inch paper, fold it in half lengthwise, and then throw it in the trash.

Damn, Misty is smart.

I am fascinated/haunted by the Titanic. I guess it's kind of a morbid fascination, but I love reading all about it. I've done extensive research (for no reason whatsoever) on it. Danny and I saw a traveling version of this in Birmingham years ago. I was enthralled.

I love that they give you random real people trading cards and you get to see if you lived or died!?!? This seems like the best part of the exhibit.

Mallcot does rank above this, right?

That's too much.

Also, I should probably mention that cameras are not permitted, but it's okay to take pictures with your cell phone.

That can't be right. Maybe it's just that there's no flash photography. I've blocked a lot of this out, but I'm pretty sure it's the first one.

Did that about 10 years ago and was utterly fascinated by it... then again, I was the kind of kid that played with a toy for 5 minutes and the box it came in for 3 days.

My guy died, if I remember correctly. Hooray childhood.
