Default Thank you sir, may I have another?

I know that sounds like a title Thomas would write... but anyway...

I have two etiquette questions for you.

1. We have decided to book a weekend cruise on the Fantasy for May 8. (Yay!) It's a definite thing and several of our friends are also interested in coming along. However, I won't be able to book until after I close on my house in two weeks (because of the credit check - don't want any big purchases showing up.) Am I justified in putting another countdown clock in my posts even though technically I haven't booked yet?

2. Would having three countdown clocks in my posts be annoying and obnoxious? Be honest. I feel we're all friends, so if you think I'd be taking up way too much space with my posts, go ahead and say so.

Here's what it would look like.

Thanks all!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Michelle - as a fellow cruise junkie, the more countdown clocks I see the better I feel - even if they aren't mine! So please, go ahead and add all the clocks you want.....and allow me to feel the tiniest bit of jealousy that you have THREE trips booked while I have just ONE! YOU GO GIRL!

Hey Michelle,
Go right ahead and add it, I think it looks great, although I'm jealous as heck. May-be some day I'll be stacked :-)


It would also be great if your friends decided to book and go along, have fun!

As said, you go, girl! I can't even get one to post! I did have 3 cruises booked and it would have been nice to have all 3 clocks!!!

Go for it!

Michelle,

The more the merrier! And the more of us who have multiples posted when CruiseAholic doesn't have ANYTHING booked, the more jealous we can make him! <VBEG> But seriously, I know I, for one, enjoy seeing what everyone has going! DO IT!

Thanks guys! Just didn't want to take up too much space. But I admit it's good for my psychological health to see my three countdown clocks!
