Iceeu2, I'll bring the Ritz crackers and Cheez Whiz! And perhaps something topped with Bisquick . . .

psst... listen(slightly slurring words from Bailey's/coffee).. should I keep my husband or bring my beau?
I'm chortling over the recent dilemnas and life altering queries made here of late.
Fact is, the only reason I agreed to my young prodigies was for the f.f. miles.
I always thought if I was made to produce a litter, I would have been a cat.
I must have been wise to take them on trips when they were young. One intends to be a pilot, bless him(and our discount trips), and the other, an architect(the better to design mother's summer home,lol).
Oh my, Randolph has arrived early to whisk me to the med trials. toodles, J.

LOL LoveItaly and JaGirl! Privet, Jetset!

Are we allowed to share a main dish? Can I sneak another Fodorite in my hotel room?

And yes, NorCal rocks!

LoveItaly, I'm not sure which shoes to bring. Do you think it will rain? Do we need to make reservations?

If we sailed to Ireland, we could acquire more soap, muahaha..
and I am bringing my dh. The man is a prince and beyond patient. Ever since he joined the Husbands Without Orders program, our state of the union has been divine.
Just a short while ago, he suggested a ride across PWS. We have friends who summer in Valdez. I haven't seen any Hunchback whales in ages, so we donate calcium pills before boarding.
Yes, I will also bring my vial of wild yam cream and hope that my hair behaves. The Cher wig doesn't always hold it's sleek style in the misty fjords.

Oh goody!!! A Fodor's GTG/convention on a plane! =D>

I can start planning my special plane riding outfit which, according to dearest Muffin, I shall choose with much care and reverence.

hmmm...let's see. Definitely not leather pants...the squeaking may annoy the pooping baby.
Maybe something pink and crispy...

Call it a travel intervention, if you will. A small room on the ship, Sunday morning, would host a "regular poster confessional:
(eyes downward, wringing hands and a choked voice) "One time, I made xyxpud really angry and(swallows hard), I was de..de..leted. All I did was ask about a sweet tea recipe"(knees vibrating like Madonna on steroids).
Quiet demure woman dressed in paisley:
"I was called a troll, and that hurts.. My cat does like to fly, and I'm sorry so many are allergic and spiteful, because I have a latex allergy and he's my only friend".
Okay, back to updating my obituary.... I'm always afraid my family would leave something pertinent out. "She always had a difficult time obtaining Lumpia wrappers".

I've got dibbs on sitting in the seat in front of LoveItaly on the plane.

Definetly Northern Cal ... close to home (as I already live there) and we can all wear white tennies, although I prefer flip flops. As a side trip, we can go to Mare Island - I don't know why, but then again I don't know why not. Faina can research and lead the tour there.

For those of us that live in the area, if we don't like what's going on, we can just take our leis, mac nuts etc.. and go home and pout.

Do none of us have a connection to a private Isle?
As an aside(practically unheard of from me), WHERE has Kal been hiding?
Oh right, the pole dancing competition will be on the champagne deck.
I can't wait to meet all of you. I'll be playing the part of a shy and modest woman with brunette hair and caramel highlights, and I will request fltered lighting so as to soften the drama. fondly, J.

I'm doing an urgent feverish research on Mare Island, "mare" as in causing nightmares, not to be confused with any kind of horses!

I will have a few requirements for this tour:

* no carry-ons, 33" suitcases only
* everybody must wear a bright red hat for head-counts
* while on the move, everybody hold hands or shackles
* only standard 3-gallon water bottles
* only pillows provided by the driver are allowed
* tipping Again is encouraged in cash and travelers' checks
* maps of Molvania will be provided 1 per couple
* maps must be returned upon conclusion of the tour
* no flash flood photography
* no ballpoint pens allowed, only fountain pens
* notes can NOT be taken, not even on toilet paper
* Fodorites supply their own seat covers
* restroom use only on command for all pets, kids, adults and such
* all and any medications are shared by everybody on the bus
* no, you can't use earplugs, you MUST listen to what I say

jetset1,

Private island like the $30,000 a night Necker Island? Where the staff asks you after breakfast, "What would you like to do today?" ?

Well...mayhap some well connected, well travelled (on Virgin) Fodorite might know Mr. Branson personally...having once started a fire in his oven...or something?

Has there ever been such a convention? Not a small GTG but a really huge GTG?

....So we have to tip the pilot? I don't know about you, but I think i'd like to sit with Black Bart!

this is very entertaining as I am in ATL and my plane is delayed. good way to pass time in the airport! And that makes me travel related!

You Northern CA folks sure you want to have this convention 07 so close to home?

I mean think about it for a moment. Do you want to have these scandalous, sixteen dollar underwear-wearing, unbathed, crusty footed, sock and sandal wearing, winos in your home town where people actually know you...
