First thing in the morning as soon as I make my 1st cup of tea, I check into Chit Chat, even before e-mails. I try to check in later in the evenings too, usually last thing at night, sometimes I get to live chat at 9p.m.
A day without CruiseMates is like a day without sunshine....
I am a night wanderer. I wake up in the wee hours and make coffee. I usually come online then to read the boards and check email. Frequently listen to Radio Margaritaville.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
I'm rarely on this site before 5 PM, Central. I've thought about starting a "Good Evening" thread, but don't think I'd get many responses. I'm NOT a morning person!
I also read posts from the bottom, up. This is sometimes very difficult when the "new posts" feature doesn't work (most of the time!). Having to remember what time I was on last night makes things even more difficult. But I don't usually miss anything!
I'm afraid I still don't get the "non-moving times" posts on Chit Chat, but do as well as I can. The last time I asked about this I was told that the reason was that the "Good Morning" thread would always be at the top. Would this be such a terrible thing??
Trying to calculate the last time I was on the "Chit Chat" board, and what I've read or not, has become like doing a puzzle! Guess it will keep my mind sharp.
"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour."

I usually come on thru the night... while you are all resting probably... sometimes I get quite discouraged cause you all have not left anything for me to READ !!! Keep those postings up... I need some entertainment & I live vicariously thru you all !!
I check in first thing in the morning on the weekends and lately during the week as my hours have changed. I'm guilty of lurking and not always saying hello then wonder why I feel left out sometimes! (G) :-)
I usually check back afternoons and evenings, too, I'm fairly hooked, I'd say!!!
Radio Margaritaville sounds great, I'll have to check it out. Jimmy is coming to Wrigley when I am out of town in Sept. Of course, the tickets my cousin is working with are $130.00!! She works at WGN so if I were home I could break her arm and get her to take me. She is not a Jimmy fan.
I check in first thing in the morning after first cup of coffee and emails. Order I read is:
ask cruisemates staff
others as I am interested
I'm a stay at home Mom, so check throughout the day. I like the evening chat, but don't get there as much as I'd like since evening time is family time for us.
