Default Am I a nerd?


Okay, they had a Carnival Cruise night and my AAA office, and of course being the nerd I am, I signed up and went last night. They really different offer any more info than I had already learned from my research and this message board, but I did when a door prize.
In fact, I blew her away when I told her how old my ship was and how many crew members etc. Now she jokes about me being a cruise director.

I really embarrassed myself (and DH) on our last cruise when someone asked a question of a crew member. He took too long to answer and I answered for him !

It's just one of the hazards of reading Cruisemates too much !

I did the same thing at a party our TA organized. A rep. from Carnival came down, and she showed her slides, and gave her spiel. She said that the Freedom was going to be out in 08. I said no it's coming out soon. She checked her notes, I didn't have to because I was here.

I am so glad to see so many trekkers out there. We had someone in our meeting who was uspset because there were a group of trekkers on board all dressed in costume
I just sat there and kinda smerked. It was kinda funny after all, our Carnival Rep referred to "Dr. Spock" I just about died.
