Default Why U wanna "Get Lei'd"

<http://www.cruisemates.com/Articles/CMcruises/summit.cfm>

For those who may not know, CruiseMates has a Group Cruise set on Celebrity's new Summit, May 13, 11 nights, Honolulu to Vancouver. It's our "Let's Get Lei'd Cruise".

I thought I'd start a thread of reasons why u'd want to join and "Get Lei'd" with Cruisemates. Hope some of u can help and elaborate on my list

- To cruise the maginfincent islands of Hawaii
- To follow that up with 5 glorious sea days crossing the Pacific with your CM friends.
- because it's the only place u can get a "Let's Get Lei'd/CruiseMates" T-Shirt.
- because u'll be part of the first group at sea to use antlers as an identifying feature
- and therefore.. u'll be the first antler-equipped herd to graze on the beaches of Hawaii (this particular breed of moose is known to graze on umbrella drinks... the umbrellas are considered ruffage)
- because cruising with a Moose and a Panda has to be considered a circus act.
- because Anne Campbell will apparently be our ring master.
- because u'll want to participate in the most decorative grass skirt balcony contest, and the door banner decorating
- not to mention the CruiseMates Beauty contest

Those are some of the reasons that come to mind.... can any of u help out with other reasons... real or fictitious???

And for those with additional time on their hands, Summit will be doing an Inside Passage Alaska cruise just after. What a fabulous cruise ... the 50th and 49th states on the same ship !!!

I do think that antlers will work well with my dressy outfits, including my designer grass skirt which I have ordered from Paris.

Capt'n Queeg will be taking side bets on whether or not I can outscore Kuki on the local golf courses. Queeg uses pari-mutel betting. Bring money.

Another reason is dinner in the Normandie restaurant. I don't know if I will go for the $74 glass of wine to accompany the lamb chops, but I can't wait for another chance at the goat cheese souffle.

The airfare is a total bargain.

I just wish it were tomorrow.

OK Kuki Pamda and Anne,

Who's gonna write Jose a letter (in Spanish) convincing him that this cruise is really the one he wants to take instead of the Panama Canal we have planned for April, and which we booked a year in advance. Keep in mind that there is a stop planned in Puntarenas, Costa Rica and we have a big family reunion planned for that day. Who's gonna do it? How're you gonna convince him? It isn't gonna be easy.

Yo hablo Espanol con un poquito de fluides. A mi me gusto mucho escribir al Jose.

(I speak Spanish with a little bit of fluency. It would make me happy to write to Jose.)

Good enough ???

Todos de nosotros queremos "get Lei'd".

(We all want to get lei'd.)

(I can't believe I typed that.)

Qualquier, yo puedo hacerla.

(Whatever, I can do it.)

Da me las reglas (Give me the rules).

Carinamente.

Kuki,
Somewhere in your background must be a bit of good British subtle humour.
Your title certainly is catching and comes with hidden values , from your past? or is it future.
Presume its the future though I hope if you do "Get Lei'd" its with real flowers not plastic.

Rob

Our wedding anniversary is that weekend, wonder if I could find the time and money.. hmmm.

<<<<Kuki,

Rob,
It's the Canadian in me.. Think we learned our humor from the Brits.

An anniversary would certainly seem to fit into the list of ...Why U wanna Get Lei'd.
(and a great reason to join us)
As is the opportunity to watch me attempt to convince Jose that Maui is on the coast of Costa Rica

Regards,
Kuki

I don't know, Rob ... I love good bread pudding (especially on HAL) but swimming in milk doesn't do a darned thing for me.

The Southern Pecans and Bourbon method sounds great though as my wife is from Barbados I might have to subsitute Doorly's Rum.
Course, she might indicate what a waste of good rum.

i wanna get lei'd --- just to get lei'd. it's been too long since i've been lei'd; oh wait a minute, i've never been lei'd!!!

tho i won't qualify for antlers & stuff, can i wistfully look on as the rest of you get lei'd??? Tweety is really bumming about no antlers, tho. somehow, somewhere, someone got the message about my cruising: there was a whole bunch of green grass by my front door Saturday morning, & my new Tweety t-shirt was on my desk chair! OK -- who's yacking about my getting lei'd???

Joanne.. not to worry. We'll find a way to get u antlers, and stuff.. and on this cruise there will be no problem to get lei'd. Could happen at every port

Rix.. since we didn't make Explorer together..U should make Hawaii happen. U even end up on the right coast.

And Jeff.. U should pay for the ease of living and cruising out of Florida, by having to endure the flight to Hawaii. I have a sneaking suspicion, with the right accessorizing, u'd stand an excellent chance in the Get Lei'd Beauty Contest.

Regards,
Kuki

Joanne,

Not to worry you will get your antlers and T-shirt and best of all join Kuki and Pamda at the Cruisemates Coctail Party. We'll have a BLAST!!!


Happy Cruising!
