Ian and Sukie got into the swing of Formal Night with outfits fit for Embassadors from a foreign nation so were given titles by Michelle and she decided her mother should be the Queen Mum. Another friend at their table was a Crown Princess. Her husband might have been a Prince Consort, I do not know, but he did arrange for Cheese Sticks for appetitizers each night so Sukie was happy.

Some of the rest of us enjoyed the fun from a distance, some did not see it except in photos after the cruise or on the Thread and the rest (dare I say ) avoided them altogether.....

So guys, how did I do summing it up?

And Kay--welcome aboard whenever you are in the mood and have time, chat away. This group will have a different personality and different subgroups and that is fine!!

Jan
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Now I get it!

Oh good grief! I had no idea what this was all about and Harry and I dined with the royals! Guess I really shouldn't be admitting to this at this point.
There was no way I could keep up with the WBPC repo thread and was totally in the dark about this.

Small world (and no song there please - that one really drives me nuts!) We are in South San Jose/Blossom Valley, close to Oakridge Mall.

Gosh, I remember Town and Country (I couldn't have told you what it was called though). But I certainly remember it being torn down and Santana Row being built. We moved here from the UK about 10 years ago now. First lived in Campbell, next to the community center. Eventually moved to Blossom Valley where we are today.

Gosh, I bet you have seen some changes around here - I bet you remember fruit orchards rather than the Silicon Valley we know today.

Nice to know there is another West Coaster on the cruise. Now it would be really funny if we ended up on the same flights! Not sure when we are flying out. We will be spending a week at our vacation home in Kissimmee before we cruise. We are also trying to keep the cruise a total secret from the kids (tell them at the port kind of thing...) Lets see how long that one lasts!

-Kay
okay it's a small world....not singing it, can't make me, great stuck in my head.

on the 24th we (my 9 year old son & I) are headed to Dland for the day, for his birthday and we for sure are getting on IASM. I read it's open again from the refurb, can't wait to see what's new.

yes lots of changes here. The other day my son asked me what has changed as we drove down Winchester. I kept pointing back and forth and saying orchard, orchard, orchard. It's sad to me how they are all gone.

Good luck on keeping this a suprise from your kiddos. I'm travelling solo on this cruise, well joining Monica as her roommate.

Every time there was talk of queens and royalty, my mind would digress to a BBC comedy show with Rowen Atkinson and Hugh Lawrie and Miranda Richardson (amongst others). It was called Blackadder and it was a spoof on British history. One was on Elizabethan times and Miranda Richardson played a great Queen Elizabeth. In a wonderful childlike, high pitched voice she would protest "Who's Queen!" whenever she wanted to get her way. As much used as the "Off with his head" line. There must be clips on Youtube if you haven't seen it. (And it will show you the typically warped British sense of humor!).

There is a different series where you will get to see Hugh Laurie in tights! (pantyhose). A totally different viewpoint of him from his role in House.

-Kay
Hey Ian.... she belongs!!!!

We will dress up for pirate night, the kids love it!

Hmmmmm getting you guys in tights... ok... just those socks that they wear up to their knickers... (think we can get you one of those hats with the big feathers on it??? )

I think we'll do a simple lobby shot. It would be fun to see if we get "outsiders" lining up for photos and autographs.
