Default Why's everyone so crazy?

Does everyone here really get "I got no life and need to focus on my cruise six months ahead of time" syndrome? Counting down days?

Is there a particular reason for asking this question? Are you suffering from "I have no life, so I fill the time by degrading others" syndrome?
Perhaps you should look into taking an elementary school grammar class instead....

Pay no mind to the person hiding behind the curtain!

Some people can't enjoy life so they try to bring everyone else down.

I guess I have no life then because I count down the days on every cruise I have taken from the moment I booked and so does my husband, and so do my kids and my parents... Its called anticipation!

I think we should change the tone of this thread because the direction it appears to be heading in is negative

The contrapostive of the original statement would be
" I look forward to counting down from 180 days until my next cruise because my life is so full and balanced I recognize how lucky I am to be able to look forward to a break doing something I really love to do and want to share that joy with others that understand"

Call it what you wish uneedahobby but guess what you must be reading these boards because you know exactly what we are all anticipating......So you must actually have no life too...BUT wait we do have lifes because we are all going on cruises and you on the other hand are just reading our boards wishing.......... thanks for trying to get us all upset but its not going to work because we have to much to look forward too.

Call me crazy..........cuz I am counting down ... 70 , 69 , 68 days or so.......and still counting. My cruise experience has lasted almost a year...and the ship doesn't leave until 8/28/04. It starts with the research, then booking , then more research and reading reviews and looking at pictures.....it is ALL part of the experience.
I just figured out how to get a count down clock.....and yep call me crazy but I love posting more now because I can see my clock !!!

If people are asking questions six months before they cruise, then I must be brain-dead. I sail May 2005.

Think of this board this way "uneedahobby". It's like your wedding day. I am certain that you had to ask your friends what to expect and what to do on that evening. Of course you wouldn't have known what to expect. By your even asking the question you did clearly indicates YOU COULDNT HAVE FIGURED IT OUT FOR YOURSELF!

I went on my first cruise in June. Half the fun was pouring over magazines and websites trying to pick the cruise we wanted and researching our destinations. It was worth all the months of counting down and waiting. Now I am anxiously researching my next cruise which will probably be in February.

, I think it's more pleasant hanging out on these boards discussing mostly positive things, happiness, joy, anticipation and friendliness rather than going to the political boards and tearing eachother apart, insulting one another and our choices and having a generally miserable time!

I'm counting the days till my next cruise and enjoy reading what everyone else has to say, their advice, concerns and how enjoyable their cruises were.

Keep it up! Let's have a great time!

Half the fun is the ANTICIPATION !!!!!! Something to look forward to !!!!! It's also fun to make people that aren't going - jealous - or perhaps urge others to start the cruising craze.

I booked our next cruise exactly 572 days prior to sailing and I know this because on the day I booked it - I began anticipating the voyage and began my countdown.

I even keep a countdown as my screen saver on my computer so I know every day how many days left until I set sail. It gives you a reason to keep working and bringing home that paycheck.

Oh darn, I have no life. Actually, all I do is read message boards, look at pictures, make portfolios of Carnival ships, study everything. From the time I wake up until the time my mom gets home, I am always on the internet thinking about my upcoming cruises.

Yes, the waiting is killing me........... The worse time is the ten days before you cruise and the ten days after you cruise. PCS and PCS.

If this is so crazy, log off. you don't like what you're watching... change the freakin channel.

I'm here because this is my AA meeting... my name is Carol, and I am a cruise addict. my cure , PURELY, rests upon my ability to win the NYS lottery (which I don't play) so I can retire to a life SOLELY devoting to cruising and rubbing it in on these message boards.

So... when I get I life... I'll give ya a call and say na na na naaaaa na

Until then I say join us, have fun with the waiting and planning and we'll live it up with you onboard the ship.

I know what you mean, BJKeen, our cruise is 9 days away.....but I agree that the anticipation is a big part of the fun. My husband's already observed that I'll have to immediately start planning our next vacation upon our return so I have something new to obsess about.

Bon voyage to all!

All this talk about kids and teens acting up on the ship makes me remeber why we decided to do adults-only all-inclusives for the past 4 years. We are going on our cruise Jan 1 - 6, I assume there won't be all that many children because most schhol go back into session after the New Year.

"uneedahobby" hum well it sounds like YOU are the one who needs a hobby. (you should try cruising, for example) See, fortunatley, everyone here and thats NOT including you, have hobbies. one of the better hobby's would be CRUISING. You probably have never been on a cruise before. So you're here wishing you could go, but you know you can't so you have to start crap on our cruise boards. Sounds like you need to get out a little more, "uneedahobby" find yourself a mate and try going on a cruise. Then you won't be asking one of the stupidest questions making yourself look like a fool. People are told "there's no such thing as a stupid question" Well I'll be darned I think those of us here at cruisemates.com just witnessed THEE MOST STUPIDEST QUESTION. Its not really that we are "focusing" on our cruise. Like everyone is saying its ANTICIPATION. its the excitment. Its so sad that you have no excitement in your life. Dear, I am so sorry that your life is like that. Like I said... You really outta get out more. Or hey stick around here a little longer, you must like it if you're posting messages... then maybe you'll start to understand us and then you won't be able to wait to book your first cruise, and oh how excited you will be! But you'll be happier onboard once you know what the cruise is really like, and when you get home then you'll know exactly what you've been missing out on. And you'll wanna book another cruise, and another and you will be COUNTING DOWN till your next one just like us! yay!! Good Luck! Really, you should try it

And for whoever mentioned the thing about "its like your wedding day" well if this person is seriously questioning this, I'm sure its safe to say the person is NOT married.

Happy Cruising to the rest of you! :-)

Hi Georgie!

The FIRST thing? Probably stand in the lobby with my mouth agape at the sheer size of the ship (The Conquest). Since this is the first time on this particular ship, we'll probably start exploring---find our cabin, the restaurants, the bars, etc. We've got only 9 more days until we sail! I see that you've got a little over 100 to go. It'll fly by...it seems like only yesterday that I had 150. I guess I need to start packing all the "stuff" I've been collecting over the past six months.

Oooh Pam...you lucky dog! I wish I was going like...today!!!!

The first thing I'm going to do is go to my room and check it out, then go have some lunch. THEN...go and check out my dining arrangements and see if the ship's arrangements agree with mine!

I'm going to explore the ship, go back to my cabin, unpack my clothing and get it all hung up and then wait for sail away!
