i especially love the urgency of the thread title, which seems to be common now on this board.

how can planning a vacation ever be urgent?

This thread is a hoot!!!

All these requirements are well and good but it's important that the resort allows my (husband, wife, partner, me, etc.) to wear (tank tops and sandals, cowboy hats, shorts, thongs, or other inappropriate apparel) in their formal dining room as we don't want to dress up on while vacation.

While you are at it, once you narrow the choice down to 2 or 3 resorts you have to tell me which one I should pick because I'm so confused.

I also need to know the airline that has the cheapest airfare from my home but I won't tell you where that is and I want one that will give me a free upgrade to first class if I tell them it's my birthday next week.

I want to be able to take a 6 hour day sail to another island that is at least 750 miles away but I don't want to get seasick during the trip and want to be back in time to take the sunset cruise.

well lets don't forget a plethora of beachside restaurants with service the speed of macdonalds, no fish on the menu, under $20pp and with carib atmosphere to sigh for. (no kids again i'm afraid).
i love this thread.

I want an extremely lush, green, tropical island with beautiful white sand beaches that doesn't get much rain...

I want all my doormen to wear turbans and sashes, and all of the waitresses should wear grass skirts... and I want my drinks with little umbrellas. Marble baths and gold fixtures. King size beds and plush carpeting that matches the bedspread. And that staff better not sass me in their own "patois"!!!

and the mattrasses should be perfect - not too hard, not too soft, and the sheets should have an extremely high thread count... comfortable slippers and housecoats should be provided by the management... the room should be cleaned 3 times a day, but we should not be bothered by this in any way... I could go on...

Ahh, the parody continues. Every time I read a new addition to this thread it makes me smile.

I want the hotel's store to have a well stocked humidor of the best Cuban cigars, kept at exactly 70% RH and freshly stocked.

Just so I can relax in my satiated glory each evening, master of the world!!!

Yes... smoking should be permitted but the room should be absolutely free of smoke, of course!!

what about all the free upgrades just because I'm me?
I want Ocean FRONT at garden prices.
I want to be bumped to first class on the airplane. (I am cute afterall)
I want a trip to Cuba without getting in trouble.
I want duty free prices on everything. (At least 1/2 price, even though I didn't do my homework before I go.)
The water needs to be calm on one side, waves on the other, cause I don't know what mood I'll be in.
I want to see sharks and turtles and dolphins and stingrays EVERY time I snorkel.
I want cheap massages, but they have to be the best in the world.
I want all of the above posts too.
