    I think I do this every year? If not, reintroduction should be acceptable with the amounts of booze drank onbroad. This will be my third cruise.

    City/country:
    USA , PROUD Las Vegas, NV local.

    Age (optional):
    28! Or 21 if you actually ask me in person :lol:

    What first got you into metal?
    I've gone through all types of music in my life but I'd say Reload Metallica album got me onto the right track eventually. Say what you will about the cd, I still love it.

    Play any instruments?
    I am really bad at drums lol, just need more practice.

    Top 5 bands?
    Obviously a hard one..
    Metallica
    Down
    Misfits
    Top three always stay the same, I'll say
    Municipal Waste (stoked to meet Tony!)
    Absu

    What do you do?
    I'm concierge at a 4 star hotel in Vegas. I love my job sometimes but like Gnoff, I've followed a love of mine & went to Bartending School, graduated that and BarSmarts Advanced, planning on attending a college course here at UNLV for Sommelier & am studying to be a Cicerone on my own.

    Love the booze! Message me on FB! Will trade Vegas brews for Mintu & Stroops! :lol: :beerbang:

    What deck are you on?
    Deck 7, make sure you memorize so you can place me outside my door haha

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    This question?

    As far as I know this year Rnesta (Will aka "Mr. Candy" aka "Captain") will not be on the cruise this year. :(
