Default POLL- What's the WEIRDEST thing U've ever packed?

An off shoot of yesterday's poll is just a natural...
What's the WEIRDEST thing you've ever packed to take on a cruise?

For me the answer is pretty easy.... the antlers go on every cruise. And we're likely one of only a few to have taken along kites.

Took some thinking, but on our first cruise I brought a Glade Plug-In air freshener. In later cruises, I learned to just throw in a half-used can of air freshener, and it works better (and I just thow the can out before we get off the ship)

Harry beat me to it, I was going to say air freshener. Actually needed it on the Jubilee, since they were having sewage smells in the loo. I'll be bringing it on the Fantasy too, just in case. Ten days... can't wait!!!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

A night light to show the way to the bath room.

I don't know if it's weird or not, but two small tap lights for the nightstands and one for the bathroom.

The weirdest thing my hubby has ever taken along is ME!
Just kidding of course. I guess the weirdest thing we've taken
along with us is...on our first cruise we took beach towels...had no
idea they provide them...and boy, did they take up a lot of room
in the suitcases.

After one cruise from hell, where everyone including the crew, had the flu, I always pack disinfectant spray and clorox antibacterial wipes. This is packed in my carry on and and first thing I do upon entering my cabin is "swab the deck" from floor to ceiling. Probably doesn't do a thing, but makes me feel better.

A MONKEY...........It's a family thing, kind of a joke. We have this plastic monkey thats about 5 inches tall. He always turns up in the darndest places. Once he was mailed to a hotel in California I was checking into. He was waiting in the room. We then took him to Alcatraz, wine country etc. He has been to Graceland, Las Vegas, Alaska, lots of islands, he's a real world traveler. If he is given to you for some occasion you have to take him on your next trip and take pictures of him. He was even hanging on my new daughter-in-laws garter at the reception. My son was shocked to find him. Like I said,"You never know where he's gonna show up."

For some reason monkey things happen to us. Like the time somone tried to sell a monkey to us in St Martin, etc.

So by far, the monkey is the WIERDEST thing ever to accompany us .

BTW a can of Lysol is a requirement if you know what I mean.

I always pack my lucky Tiger's eye for my trips into the casino. It really does have magical luckiness all over it, whenever I bring it into the casino the casino gets real lucky.

Lately I've been packing Mrs. Thomas' diamond tennis bracelet just in case the Tiger's eye is having a bad night! <grin>

Regards,
Thomas

A cat. That is what happens when you're not totally awake when you zip the suitcases.

Fortunately, the cat made a fuss before being loaded into the limo.
