    Forum members meet up

    by STACH100 » Tue Dec 27, 2011 7:30 pm

    I don't know if this has been suggested but I think a Forum Members Meet in the Boleros lounge on Monday while the stage is being set up would be great.
    Any interest?

    We tried this last year at breakfast and it was hard to find everyone, as there was simply too many of us (or they were tired and sleeping).

    I'll end up meeting most of everyone at the pre party and then during the ship multiple times (at least logic tells me tbat) :mrgreen:

    I like the meetup on departure idea is much better than the brekky one - should be far more manageable.

    We will definitely pass through and say g'day :)

    If you define what you said as talk. You came over to the table, stared, mumbled a word or two and then walked off. 15 seconds I'll never get back :cry: :lol: :cry:

    This meetup sounds very doable to me. Was Boleros one of the really smokey bars? it was the karaoke one, right? if so I probably won't hang for too long but will definitely stop in at some point :mrgreen:

    If I remember correctly Boleros was the one with the outside view on the way to the theater.
    Any way that is the bar we should meet.

    I'll pop in. My plans are to reacquaint myself with the ship when first getting on broad so I'll pop into everywhere. If I see a large group of forumites gathering I'll be sure to say hello.

    I'd like to drop by and meet you all. I'll probably forget. But if I drift by anywhere and notice a couple dozen people who seem to know each other, I'll assume it's you guys and come say hi. Either it will be you ad all will be well, or it won't be, and I will earn my certified creeper status.

    I hope to meet some forumites...but something tells me it will be a hit or miss thing. Tall dude with blonde hair, flanked by huge dude with no hair....then it's probably me.

    well without an exact time it could be difficult ... as I wouldn't want to just sit in there for 5 hours waiting for people to show up, if that were the case I'd just as soon sit up on the pool deck by one of the bars and say hi to whomever passes by.

    not that I wouldn't walk around the ship again to refresh my memory on the lay out and finding where everything is (again) ...... if a group of people are in there at that time I'll stop for awhile and say what's up, how you doing type thing.

    Can't wait to see you all and take this trip to hell and back :shock: :beerhorns: :givebeer: :cheers:

    Bahahaha, I just want everyone to know how unmetal I look so they can recognize me on the ship!

    Last year I didn't really meet up with anyone that I didn't already previously know from the Los Angeles shows and I think it's because a) I'm short and hard to find [at 5'7", I felt like the shortest person -- male or female -- on the cruise] and 2) Because people had no idea what I looked like (my old avatar was John Stamos).

    Now I want people to talk to me. Be my friends!!

    Yeah! I knew you ahead of time from the LA meetups and I still only saw you I think twice the whole cruise.

    [quote="KevinP"]We tried this last year at breakfast and it was hard to find everyone, as there was simply too many of us (or they were tired and sleeping).

    Yes, we did try this for breakfast with ShoreSlayer as host but Kevin is right that most were tired, and sleeping due to being hung over. Kevin as I remember, you had to take a quick nap as I went up for the meet/greet Breakfast. I think you were just getting in form your first all-night Karaoke fest. LOL :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    This should be a do-able thing and I know that I will be doing a walk-about. As DraonLordJones says, a set time would be effective and for KDibidox, yes the Boleros was the Smokey bar which on the last night was really bad and I think that is why I had such a bad pounding headache in the morning as we were kicked off the boat at 8:00am. I really needed more nap time that morning. LOL :roll:
    All of the other days during the cruise that bar was fairly smoke free. :cool:

    Just breakin balls brother :)
    Trust me....metal is something you wear on the inside, not the outside

    I only recently grew out my hair, and if anything, it is more an ode to my ancestors than a sign of musical affiliation. I'm all about honoring Saxons, Vikings, Jutes, Engles, Celts....etc.
    BUT....it sure is fun to bang your head in style


    All that being said, I am EXTREMELY tempted to chop it off after the cruise and once more I could get ready in the mroning in 5 min as opposed to 30.

    Lastly, if Bruce Dickenson and Halford have short hair certainly you can!

    PS Look forward to the 7pm broadcast

    BUT....it sure is fun to bang your head in style


    All that being said, I am EXTREMELY tempted to chop it off after the cruise and once more I could get ready in the mroning in 5 min as opposed to 30.

    Lastly, if Bruce Dickenson and Halford have short hair certainly you can!

    PS Look forward to the 7pm broadcast

    your pic is a little blurry but you look like you have gorgeous hair! i know what you mean about the time to care for it though....can't you just do a quick pony tail?

    How hard can it be?

    Time: Exactly 20 minutes past the muster drill. We all will have (time) to drink plenty before they line us up. The bands haven't start playing yet, so no one has to worry about missing a gig.
    Place: In the outdoor bar on Pool deck. 200 feet from the stage. On the other side of the pools, seen from the stage. People who can't stand smoke won't be bothered.

    Or whatever.

    Last year I didn't really meet up with anyone that I didn't already previously know from the Los Angeles shows and I think it's because a) I'm short and hard to find [at 5'7", I felt like the shortest person -- male or female -- on the cruise] and 2) Because people had no idea what I looked like (my old avatar was John Stamos).

    Now I want people to talk to me. Be my friends!!


    Just breakin balls brother :)
    Trust me....metal is something you wear on the inside, not the outside

    The 30 min is me waiting for it to be dry before i step into the frozen tundra up here. I don't bother with products or blowdrying or anything, just some oil if needed.
    I hate wearing pony tails....i will do that once and a while. But not often, i feel I look like a martial arts expert (ive been pumping iron for the last year or so which doesnt help the whole kung fu motif). Or worse...ever see the movie airheads?....someone called me "milo" once....fuck.

    The rennaisance festival is about the only place (outside of a metal shows) where I get any comments other than "cut it". Fuckin people

    Thanks for the compliment! The ladies at my work are constantly bitching at me for having fuller healthier strands. I attribute it to a high protein diet, or perhaps that is the swedish side of ye old genetics

    Besides the genetics, which have a lot to do with it, i'm sure your stance on no-products and no-blowdrying keeps it very healthy.

    i'm sure you look just fine in a ponytail by the way, screw anyone else, they're just jealous!

    I hear you man. The drying time is the reason I started showering at night. It takes my hair over an hour to completely dry, and I can't stand leaving the house with wet hair.
    And seriously, I don't understand why long hair upsets people so much. Was told to cut it a dozen times over the holidays... almost ruined dinner when someone came at me with a pair of scissors. :evil:

    I get yelled at by women for that as well, you might be on to something with the protein. I'll have to look into that. Either that or my great grandmother was pretty friendly with some Swedes :lol:

    again guys, it's because you don't dye it, use any products, or blow dry it. nothing mystifying about your healthy hair. just keep that up and you'll be fine.

    I hear you brother. I don't understand why long hair offends so many

    I associate long hair with freedom, sexuality, youthfulness, vitality, and the warrior spirit

    What totally confounds me....ANY century outside of now, we'ed be the norm. Most of history's greatest men had long locks (not that it had anything to do with their achievements).


    WizzardBeast...my blurry avatar has been pissing me off, your comment was the straw that broke the camels back. It should be fixed now.... :givebeer:
