Tom Cruisin For A Bruisin

I'm going on a cruise. I'm writing a children's book about it. The Nearly Albino Canadian Goes On A Cruise.

I'll come back and let you all know how bad the burn is.

Your 50 SPF friend,
Matthew

I Already Knew About This.. The Cruise, I Mean.. I Swear I'm Not A Stalker Though.. :D

I'm Really White Too..

Haha.. Go Us.

I Hope You Don't Get Burned,

Keep Your Skin Safe, I Don't Want You Getting Skin Cancer, I Love You Too Much!

raven said...

hahahah
nice thiessen,
nice.
:)

Nina said...

I completely agree with Britney, don't get skin cancer!!

I knew about the cruise too, and maybe i'm crazy, haha, but i refuse to go on big boats ever since i saw posiden... haha, i know there really aren't 'rogue' waves, but it scares me... lol

i'm pale too :/ so be careful and don't get burned and don't let anybody push you into the pool!

Have Fun!!!! Love ya :D

I already posted something on your myspace. I burn pretty easily. Wal Mart has this really good smelling 50+ sunscreen that works like a champ. Wouldn't want you to lose that sweet albino look, now would we? LOL

I didn't get burned on the cruise, though. I think there was more eating than swimming. LOL

Hint... a lot of the sight seeing things you can do yourself. The cruise arranged excursions are more expensive, but they are simpler. Just in case one you want to book is full. I was paranoid about not getting back in time, though.

Have fun, take lots of pics, and I can't wait to hear the end of the story.

Melanie said...

OH.. forgot to add. Are you going to illustrate this book? ;)

Anawall Zi Caviar said...

a children's book huh?really?
i would love 2 read that:D
make sure u put on lots of sunscreen
i wouldn't want 4 u 2 get burn.

Lindsey said...

Have fuuuuuun! And don't get burnt. Remember, SPF 30 or up IS YOUR FRIEND. :) Come back in one piece will ya?

Oh no I sound like a mom which is kind of weird seeing as I'm 14 years younger than you. I think. I'm kind of tired. :/

Toodles!
-Lindsey

PS. I told you I could be normal! :D

JENNA! said...

Wow! It seems like Mr. Thiessen is blogger happy.YAY! Have fun on your trip and don't get a sunburn! :D

Christi said...

Cruises are exciting.
Have Fun!!!!
Try not to get burned too bad though :)
I'm looking forward to seeing this children's book haha

:D

liz said...

Haha. I'm albino too. Have a swell time.

Holly said...

I have to use SPF 50 too. It's good stuff.

Enjoy the cruise!

Mercy said...

I would go with the baby sunscreen... it works pretty well. and it comes with a portable mini-bottle. Although the bigger one is portable too, so there's really no point.

anne said...

Hey Matt,So, I have something in common with you.I too am an immigrant who moved here in '86.The difference being i moved from Ireland to Boston.1986 was a great year!!Useless piece of info i know,anyway have a great cruise.....Cheers, Anne.

Andrea said...

I don't think I'll ever go into a cruise..I'm to scared of the ocean. I'm also pale and get burned and it sucks so I stay away from the sun as much as I can. Have fun! Oh and I want to read the book!

sjaarnaeh said...

Im Really Pale Too, Matt!
I Hope You Dont Get Burned Too Badly!!
:D

Madison said...

ugh, hate when that happens. x_X
I still have a bit of burn on my shoulder from Labor Day.
curse my father's pale skin genes.

meggggg said...

have fun!

Kara said...

You know what would be really cool? if you put the sunscreen on your skin in a plaid design. Then you'd have plaid on all the time!




Okay, I lied, that wasn't cool, that was just creepy. Now I'm going to post it, oops!

remember.me said...

FUN! Cruise! In my opinion, being albino is better than being tan. I probably only think that 'cause I'm almost albino also...ha ha.

lexidoodleellis said...

well...

i must say im not albino

im ... of a medium skin tone... the type that doesnt get burnt...

but i remember your nasty sunburn story... ickkkkyyy

peeeeeell that blister off, my friend...


ahhaha..

just dont tell blister stories in concert again... okay?

but i hope your cruise is spiffle diffle great!

are you leaving out of jville? or... that other city i forget the name of?

Emily said...

Have fun!!
I don't burn actually
Which its kinda weird cause normally red heads burn but I don't
I guess its because of my brown eyes
Have fun!!

I got a few other ideas for children's books you could write about

lebron is hosting snl tonight.
i thought you should know...

M(EGG) said...

Hi...my name is Megan and my friend Bri and I are going to bring you something interesting and fun at the Salem, Oregon show this December.

Therefore, I think you should bring me something interesting and fun from said cruise so we can pretend like we belong in the old western town trading post days...

Something like an authentic cruise ship roll of toilet paper, or fake flower from the vase at dinner :)

Think about it...

Nathan said...

They played Be My Escape during the transition to commercial on Sunday Night Football in the 4th quarter. Niceness. Just thought you'd like to be filled with glee over this bit of info.

Enjoy your cruise? Yes, please.

icedancer said...

Lucky! I have to train for skating... Lots of free dance run throughs included. lol. Enjoy the cruise. I hope you don't get burned too bad! You guys really need to add some more podcasts. They're so good! :-)

ali-d-not-g said...

melanie said...

Victoria said...

oucheeee. i think i'm closer to being albino than you! i don't tan at ALLLL. i burn immediately. icky.

WORDS OF WISDOOOOOOM (yes i got that from you): didja know that anything above spf 30 DOESN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE??? wow. WORDS OF WISDOOOOOM! :)


haha.

have fun. and tell dave to not cut his curly locks. for a long time.

musiclurver said...

Haha I feel your pain. [;
I burn way too easily.
That's why I've got this hatred towards the beach.

Good luck with that sunscreen.

Let us know how that children's book turns out. Haha.

Mandarina said...

I think you should call the book "Canadian Bacon". Shorter titles get higher sales... trust me on this, I am studying kid lit right now. That's a lie, I am typing right now, but I will be continuing my kidlit studies in the coming days.

Rose Cao said...

i think you have the best sense of humor everrr. your blogs make me smile. =)

Mercy said...

You know, I wonder what it's like having a stalker. I bet it's kind of really scary.

Brittany said...

I Saw This Picture Of You With A Kid That Was On The Cruise, You Were In A Sweater Vest, You Totally Looked Burnt..

What Happened To Using Sun Block...?

haha.

Or Maybe Your Face Was Just Red Because It Was Hot... I Really Don't Know For Sure..

Tamara said...

YAY for nearly albino canadians!
I too am one... although I don't get
to go on a cruise :(
I hear you guys are back now though
I hope it was a good time, and that
you will write a blog about it soon,
that would be excellent!

[ k a t i e Q ] said...

I suppose there isn't much chance you'll actually read this...

Oh well.

I've never used this site before...I just had nothing to do, so I thought I'd have a look around at some stuff on the internet...

I was just wondering...is Relient K still a christian band? Because you don't seem to be writing many christian type songs anymore. I love some of the older ones...stuff like 'For The Moments I Feel Faint'...

Also...does 50 SPF sunscreen actually exist? I've never heard of it...might be useful to have some though...I'm a nearly albino aussie...Australians are supposed to be tanned...ah well. I got over it a long time ago.

Christi said...

I think it's time that you post a blog about the cruise.
:D

Larissa said...

"The Nearly Albino Canadian Goes On A Cruise" That's way too funny!

Moose said...

haha... that makes me laugh. i lived in a desert, and still managed to stay really white... in the summer... at the pool... haha { } < amish smileyface.
God bless!

♥PaigeFOOL♥ said...
