Wow, I don't think I've been part of a thread that got moved. I got to meet a few people in the Schooner Bar when the pins were handed out, but I never got an invite in my cabin about the Meet & Mingle. I came home and got the Nuts Bronchitis too. Hope to see everyone again on another cruise.

I couldn't agree more, very confusing! I'm just trying to keep up -- is this an IQ test, lol!

Paula, you may be on to something. Maybe the wine tasting will clarify CC for you. Let us know, I'm willing to try the experiment.

I'm so jealous, you must tell us all about the wine tasting dinner. I really want to go to one of those.

I'm so sorry you didn't get the M and M invite, that's awful, especially in light of the fact that you got the NUT CRUD!!!! Doesn't seem fair at all does it!

Hopefully we can connect another time on another cruise. Some of us have booked Rhapsody May 3, 2014 Honolulu to Vancouver....care to join us

Um obviously our invite was lost in the mail right??????

I will keep going back and posting in the floataway lounge. Hopefully any NUTS that go back to the Radiance threads will see that we were moved and will start looking. Honestly this was waaaay more work than it should have been and no notice that they had done what I requested Silly CC!

Did I mention that I am going back page by page and copying all of our poetry so we can have 1 document with all of the poetry together Oh yes I am and honestly I do not get paid enough for this kind of work
Have fun drinking your wine and enjoying yourself while the rest of us are doing things like putting out the lawn furniture...but no don't feel too bad...pretty sure you don't
Glad you found this thread!

It is right here with this thread, when you click on Macadamia Cruise Nuts you will see 3 posts, the HELP post welcoming us, this thread and the closed thread that they moved from the Radiance section. Hopefully they keep the closed thread there for a while so I can finish going through it. I have worked my way back to page 579 so far. Lots of reading. We were pretty funny

The Macadamia Nut Bug Lament

Oh Purell I practically bathed in the stuff
hoping that it would possibly be just enough
but the bug did its best
and put my lungs to the test
and left many of us feeling quite rough.

Obviously nothing can knock down that Poet Laureate wit of your!!!! Well done sir!!! The poetry can only help to kill the NUT CRUD!!!!

Today is the first day that I only used my inhaler once. Perhaps tomorrow will be nonce! Taking a complete breath and not feeling like I will hork up a lung is such a nice feeling!!!!

Here is hoping that you recover quickly. If it lingers on in your chest it would be wise to seek medical attention. Many of us had bronchitis, actually I do believe it was renamed "Bronch-NUT-us"
Feel Better! Soooo glad that you found the new thread! Keep those limericks coming....ya know ya wanna!

I know, it seems like the long way around, but we seem to be gradually getting here. I think it helps that they put the heading Macadamia Cruise Nuts and thank goodness they kept our closed thread. Hopefully it stays a while till I'm done getting what I need. We NUTS were pretty chatty which is in part how we managed to give the NUT CRUD to so many.

Hopefully everyone has recovered by the weekend. This is our Victoria Day Long Weekend and I believe it is your Memorial Day isn't it?

Oh, Tom, so sorry you caught it. But still being able to write poetry has got to be a good sign to an early recovery, right?

Soooo, what you are saying is, we are victims of our own success? That we had so much fun that we darned near killed ourselves off? That cruise critic is so incredibly envious of our chattiness that they made an example of us? Do you sense a conspiracy here?

We will just have to have a virtual drink in the virtual Diamond Lounge every evening, say, around 5pm?? A virtual bar server can serve us those drinks and virtual canapés. Tonight I'm going to have, oh, let's see, CHAMPAGNE! (I have not had a drink since we got home. Stop laughing. )

I sooo happy that we have a new permanent home. They shut down our T/A thread with just over 10,200 posts so it seems we were REALLY lucky our thread stayed alive so long. Karen - I love your virtual happy hour idea. I plan to participate every evening and will toast all my fellow nuts.

Tomorrow will be a big day! Our office is made up of four different sections. Each month, our section has a lunch where we all get together in our conference room and share lunch together. Each month, someone, whoever has been on vacation, has to show vacation photos during our lunch. Guess what??? Tomorrow it is me - no pressure or anything since I've just barely gotten over the "Nut Crud" and only had several hundred photos to sift through. I finished putting pics (196 slides at last count) into the PowerPoint at lunchtime today so tomorrow morning, I just have to pare it down a little and add a title slide. I think I'm going to use Tom's limerick somewhere in there to try to get a little "Nut Personality" into the slide show.

The wine tasting dinner tonight was fabulous! There is a small Italian Restaurant in Cocoa Beach that has a wine tasting dinner one night a month from May till November. We don't really eat there often but their wine tasting dinners are spectacular. They started doing it last year and we haven't missed one yet . Wish you could have joined us!

Time for bed - just wanted to check in. Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow!
