Hmmm. Not sure. Do I want to have a received pronunciation (RP) accent and sound like I went to Eaton?

Maybe something from the Lake District, or Zommerzet (Somerset) perhaps? Devon and Cornwall are also nice accents.

I don't think I want a London accent.

Don't know what to get for those pesky Fish Extender gifts?
Join the Tortolian Lanyard Gift Giving Team!



We're recruiting team members to chip-in for the cost of the lanyards (as it's just too darn complicated to try and collect money from everybody wanting one).

Due to ordering requirements, we will be ordering more than we currently need, so if you were on the fence about a lanyard, sign up with mishoe01 for one now.

On the FE list, but didn't order a lanyard? Think about getting one now as a souvenir.

Not on the FE list, but ordering multiple lanyards and feel guilty about getting them for free? No one would object if you wanted to 'chip-in'. PM Monica to keep all transactions private.

******disclaimer******Supply limited, act now!


Exact cost per team member will vary based on how many folks we have on the team, could fall in the $20-40 range.

Now I would have imagined you with the Eaton style accent. You have to be able to dress up and go to Royal Ascot to hob nob!

Kay,

You've yet to see my wardrobe. Suffice it to say, that I am certain we are the only guests on the cruise travelling with hat boxes.

Peggy, we'll see you at the meet and you can "program" our faces in. I can't post a pic yet so you can't "meet" our faces first. Maybe soon I'll have enough posts. You will love the Boardwalk, it is our "Home" resort. It is the best location, on the lake between Epcot and DHS, and you can take the boat there! Love it!!! They have plenty going on at night after the parks close, lots of stuff on the boardwalk. There's even a piano bar on the boardwalk which is a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy it. Be warned, it is so easy to be spoiled by this resort!
I know I'm so excited about the Boardway, been looking at photos and I think I'm going to fall in love too!

Call your local congressman's office and ask for free tour tickets. That's what I did and after some phone calls and emails I received our confirmation for three tour admission tickets - for free. At $38/ea that's $114 in savings.
GOT MY TICKETS TODAY!!!! Yes, it's true if you ask you RECEIVE!!!!

The do have a chocolate version of this (though if that's what you'd prefer, be sure and tell your servers the first night). The 'happy birthday' part is done in white chocolate too!.
I KNEW IT! I knew someone was talking about CAKE! Jackie - remember Dianne... "CAKE!!!"

Another funny story to tell you all - we have a slew of them!

If you are wary about getting in on the conversation. Just jump in, ask questions, answer them, talk about what you are doing for the weekend (even if it is just ). Anything. Keep jumping in.

I have enjoyed getting to know my fellow cruisers. This trip I anticipate that our kids will just want to live in the clubs, so DH and I will have tons of free time if that happens It will be great to meet new friends and hopefully ones that will transcend the cruise :-)

-Kay
I just love people who aren't afraid to JUMP in!!! We you Kay.

Yes, we must find out why she gets nice cake, while everyone else gets poo.
Cuz she's sweet, and kind, and has a big heart and is always willing to help others...

All caught up and many things to add...

I cannot for the life of me remember if Peggy re-changed her mind about doing FE. I tried calling her from Joanne's to see if she wanted me to get supplies to make her a simple one, but couldn't hunt her down. Saw some cute ideas for a Mickey/Minnie one, and all their sticker/emblishment stuff was 40% off.

Door decorations:

Besides the above mentioned Mickey ears, this trip will have a 'family' sign or two (pirate like one and deck chairs one) as well as my DISboards cruiser sign and a Tink sign for Dianne (must have symmmetry). Peg will have a few signs on her door, and there will be ears for the other two family doors. And I think Peg is making a a copy of the family cruise sign for their doors also. I think we'll want an external dry erase board on each door too. GREAT for leaving messages and for folks who walk by to leave greetings too. I have a small one for inside my cabin for when one of us departs while the other is sleeping.

Oh....and we'll have our DCL nametage magnets too!.
I've got a whole SLEW of door signs I'm either done with or planning on doing - remember the one I made last time for the day we were out looking for Jack Sparrow? Anyway, I've printed the Indiana Jones Hat for Jose's mickey ears ... I'll hang that at least one day. While I'm not a big FE person - I do like to change my door signs!

Time to hunt down my sister and go back to the craft store.....if I can stay awake!

Well she found me and we did find some cute NON-DISNEY dry erase boards and Jackie made FUN of me... but then bought a few for her friends ... sure sure just like an older sister...

Or, I could also say that I was born in the wrong country, wrong class and wrong age.
I too was born in the wrong era and wrong class and I'll add wrong sex - boys have better toys!

.
Didn't find any at Walmart and haven't been to Office Max yet, and see she did FESS up about buying the "shhhhshhhh" dry erase boards. I did find a cute one for THE INSIDE of the door for DH to leave me notes when he leaves me sound asleep and goes wandering off - he does that at home too... I believe he's trained now to leave a note...

FYI FE PEOPLE: Saw some great stuff at Dollar Tree today. I picked up a gag gift for my family for our 'celebration' meal.

.
PJ shakes her head... I know the gag gift and I think it's a great idea that we should expand upon since we'll have some fun folks there too!

Still waiting to hear of the FL member of our family group was able to get any resident discount for this cruise.

Wonder what Monica/Nan decided for thier options.


Today I'm p.o.'d all over again at DCL about the stupid fuel surcharge. Just read another post where someone on a cruise a couple weeks after ours called DCL and the cast member REMOVED theirs. You know, either all of us who fell within that booking window where it was changed pay it, or we all don't.....makes me cranky.


I think I need some lunch and a nap!
