Lifecruisers news flash

1. This is a Cruise announcement:
Today the admission round #1 to become an A-Team Cruiser start!

2. When it ends depend on how many applications we get. There will be an announcement at Monday with the first acknowledged new A-Team Cruisers.

3. Why apply to become an A-Team Cruiser?
- You’ll be guaranteed a “first class ticket” for the special cyber event we plan for sometime in 2007. We’re not really sure of when we’ll have time to make it happen, so we can’t book the date yet. But we’ll for sure have FUN!

4. You’ll be linked to in the front link list in our sidebar as A-Team Cruiser as well as in the ordinary blogroll A-Swab Team.

5. You’ll get some kind of mentioning of your blog in at least one of my posts, plus be guaranteed regular visits and crazy comments from me.

6. here will defenitely be a Cruise Ball Party. You might get other surprises from me too – you’ll never know… *lol*

7. Admission requirements:
You must be a regular cruiser here and start in the A-Swab Team ( se the right sidebar), which also means linking back here with an direct link (no meme). So let me know if you’re linking to us, but not see your link in either A-Team Cruiser or the A-Swab Team.

8. You must have been cruising with us for a while – or may have other qualities or skills we need urgently. You may suggest those qualities or skills yourself to us – use your fantasy!

9. You must be able to keep up the regular visits here for a long period at least and not only for meme posts like Wordless Wednesday, Thursday Thirteen or Photo Hunt.

10. Bonus admission points can be achieved by bribing the captain (me) in several ways: offering champagne, party’s, dedicate posts to Lifecruiser, writing about this admission round, writing other excellent posts with embarrassing photos, write comments on our posts that are crazy, fun, interesting or…..?

11. Send your application by email to lifecruiserteam at gmail dot com or answer directly in this post, whatever you feel is right for you.

12. Minimum details in your application is: Blog address, blog title, name or nicname of you, special skils or bribes you offer us or other fun or embarrasing things in your blog. Use your fantasy to make us believe that you would be fun or useful to have with us on this event :-)

13. There will be held admissions rounds several times a year, but even elimination rounds to keep the A-Team Cruisers up to date. You will be excluded if failure to live up to the requirements, but is always welcome back again through another admission round.

    Ohhh, I want to play!!! I will definitely email when I decide on my bribe :) very cool!

    Dave UNITED STATES said:

    i can only attest the having been an A-Team Cruiser for some time now has been one of the greatest honors ever bestowed on this humble blogger. It far surpasses my other honor, The Royal Order of the Poobah in which I am Exaulted Sinkstop.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, and you’ve been an excellent A-Team Cruiser too Dave :-)

    But now we’re stepping this up one level – as I have thought about since I introduced the term A-Team Cruiser but never gotten around too until now :-)

    Stay tuned to get the continue of this….

    carmen said:

    Wow, so much pressure! I’m having visiting difficulties recently, with the buying and selling of houses thing, but perhaps next time I can live up to an ACruiser. :)

    Lifecruiser: That’s because we want it to be up to date all the time – but you’re ALWAYS warmth welcome over here, whether it be as a temporary Cruiser or A-Swab Team Cruiser or later on a A-Team Cruiser :-)

    Why not start in the A-Swab Team now, to be prepared for the day you want to apply for the A-Team Cruiser?

    Just give me a note that you have me linked in your blogroll and we’ll link to you in our blogroll A-Swab Team with pleasure :-)

    Tink NETHERLANDS said:

    You’re making me very curious! I’ll have to get back here more often! :razz:
    My TT is about support.

    Lifecruiser: How fun :-) You’re warmth welcome!!!!

    Maribeth UNITED STATES said:

    I have been a faithful cruiser for some time. You are not only on my blogrolling, but you are on my bloglines as a “Must Read” every day!
    My bribe, Mmmmmm. The full 5 course meal with wine, champagne and chocolates! Personally cooked by me. :lol:

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I know! Mmmmm…. sounds absolutely delicious Maribeth – you sure know what this hungry monster likes ;-)

    I’ll sum up your bribes and turn it into admission points later on!!!

    Melli UNITED STATES said:

    WELL! Thank goodness for me, I am already on the A-Swab Team! One step down that I need not worry with! So… my blog name – Insanity Prevails… address and nickname included in linkage! I DO believe this MIGHT be just the job I’m looking for! You know I waaant to be a WORLD TRAVELLER and need ONLY the assistance of a good SHIP to cruise on! So… I think maybe we are interviewing each other — you DO need to let me know for sure HOW MANY excursions I can expect to take with you this year, what are some of the HIGHLIGHT destinations we will be cruising for, and will entertainment be provided or must I bring my own? And is GAMBLING allowed?

    Now, as for bribes and talents and such… well… of course I offer my WITTY HUMOR! My LOVABLE personality! And let us not forget my unique CHARM! Always willing to be the most embarassing moment at any given party…

    I believe I have already proved WELL to be a briber with such things as a bucket of DUCKS, but should you require FURTHER indulgences, I’m quite certain I can come up with some treats that you will find IMPOSSIBLE to say NO to! (nothing as simple as champagne or chocolate, I assure you…)

    DO choose me, LC! You KNOW you won’t be sorry!

    Lifecruiser: Ha ha ha… You know Melli, you’ve just made me very curious of what that other treats would be that you’re talking about even though you’re one of the most qualified already…. *LOL*

    I’ll give a full report later on with who did make it in and why….

    Chelle Y. UNITED STATES said:

    Sounds like a fun trip! :)

    Lifecruiser: It sure will be!!!!

    Cin said:

    What a great idea – I’ll be back to check out your archives.

    Happy Thursday Thirteen!

    Lifecruiser: Excellent. I’ve already checked you out, so I hope we’ll continue to do that :-)

    Rennyba NORWAY said:

    I hereby declare my application to be an A-Team Cruiser is sent. For a Norwegian it is always good to collaborate as well as compete with a Swedish you know. (Btw: congrats with your golden medal in Biathlon today – the first mixed ever you know!

    You know you’ve been on my blogroll for long and today I updated it with your blog’s theme.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Renny, aren’t that an excellent achievement? Golden medal. *whistles*

    Your application will have an extra neighbour-star in the marginal of course :-)

    I’ll write a sum up and report post later on.

    TorAa NORWAY said:

    With my lack of fantasy and my blushing shyness I need to toss a coin 13 times to such a severe descission, wether or not to apply for membership. If the tossing ends up with a draw, which it might well do, thats my fortune, I’ll bring in one of my gross cases of vintage champage to help me me descide.

    btw. Can you give me a little hint. It will help my selfrespect.

    Lifecruiser: Or is it 13 coins you have to toss? *lol*

    Oh, that bribe I love – vintage champagne = bonus admission points defenitely!!!!

    I’ll make a note….

    Frances said:

    What a great idea for a 13.
    I love the newsflash blinkie.
    Look forward to reading about the cruisers.
    Thanks for visiting.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I thought so too .-) We’ll have fun. Welcome back!!!

    Jane UNITED STATES said:

    Well, that sounds like a great idea. I’m not sure I am eligible since I have not visited here much……but I could change that……HMMMMMM…….whatcha think? :wink: :wink:

    Lifecruiser is whispering: Why not try with some crazy bribe….? *lol*

    Sunflower said:

    Looks interesting. I will have to come back ofter to see what is going on:-)

    Thanks for stopping by my Sunflower blog and supporting me! Welcome back anytime.

    I will Exercise for Comments!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, don’t miss out on the fun :-)


    Wow, this sounds like fun! :grin: Am I qualified to join? :wink: :lol:

    Lifecruiser: It’s gonna be fabulous fun!!! Well, what do you have to bribe us with? *lol*

    Gina said:

    I am SO good at bribes! I offer up my twin sons (almost 14 years old), that eat like horses; are lazy as shite and deserved to be ragged out on my blog at least once a month… in exchange for an honorable mention on the sacred blog roll…:twisted:

    Lifecruiser: I’m rather certain of the fact that twin teen sons will be hard for any one to beat…. *lol*

    mar SPAIN said:

    C’mon, you need me in your cruise team. I can translate for you next time you are in Fuerteventura, nobody in the swab team speaks Spanish as fluent as I do :)
    I am not only a regular cruiser , I want to be part of THE team!!!!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I can admit that fluent spanish gives a huge bonus admission point besides the fact that you’r such a lovely person:-)

    marina said:

    hi, sorry for not going on site for a while. i rarely ever have internet these days. it{s some of the non perks of living in a third world, under developed nation such as costa rica.
    however, i would love to sign up, i can offer stupid stories from costa rica, and other foolish ways.
    ciao for now

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I know you have had some problem with the connection, which must be sooo darn difficult, so I’ve been understanding to that.

    Stupid stories ALWAYS gives bonus admission points… *lol*

    Saboma UNITED STATES said:

    Thanks for stopping in at Maryannaville today, LC. Lifecruiser is now in my blogroll and I’ll have a blast checking out the latest happenings that are going on here. In time as well as an accumulation of brain cell functions, I’ll submit an application requesting to join in the cyber fun ya have happening here.


    Lifecruiser: You’ll probably have to hurry up with that application. I’ll warn you before the time goes out to apply. I hope that your brain cell start to function soon again – mine has taking a long vacation ;-) *hugs*

    Shoshana UNITED STATES said:

    My ears are still ringing from my child’s tantrum…but I’d like to join and figure this out when my bell stops clanging.

    Lifecruiser: You’re very much welcomed Shoshana, with or without the bell clanging ;-)

    happy and blue 2 said:

    This sounds interesting.
    Hmmm.. a bribe.
    How about I stop cleaning my house and get you to clean it instead so you never run out of things for your TIT list..

    Lifecruiser: You’re just saying that because you want to see use our best housekeeping method: to clean nude…. *LMAO*

    Sanni GERMANY said:

    :shock: ?!?! Not enough I´ve had a car accident with a stupid hit-and-run rövhal so I couldn´t make it earlier… I´ve got no possibility to put the ° above the rövhal where it belongs without making rövhal look like this: rövh°al!!! I missed this fun?! Impossible!
    Who´s trying to bribe ♥Mrs Lifecruiser♥ (offering *erm* whipering: some re-imported djungelvral without ° and a huge bottle of Champagne?) Sanni is :mrgreen:

    Lifecruiser: No worry, you were not too late Sanni :) We’ll announce how it all went on Sunday-Monday sometime. Wel’ll inform all new A-Team Cruisers especially :-)

    aka R'acquel said:

    *lol* I find you so interesting anyway!

    Lifecruiser: Interesting? Are you sure? Not weird? *LMAO*


    Um so do I need to rebribe for my next cruise? I’ve been on the A Cruise team for awhile and haven’t complained too much about the backed up toilets or ladies showing their titties while they swab the deck.

    I think I deserve ongoing passage on the sinkhole. I will try to compliment the captain more (you rock!) and find ways to amuse the kiddies that need entertainment, though this isn’t a Disney cruise you know.


    Lifecruiser: You’ll always come in handy ICL, if not else when we’re serving the Irish Guiness….. *lol*

    marina said:

    i seem to be full of stupid stories lately:grin:

    Lifecruiser: not stupid Marina, entertaining :-)

    Debbie said:

    Oh I am so behind in my reading. I hope it doesn’t keep me off the A-list. I will work harder at a daily stop over!

    Can I bribe you? How about a nice necklace made with turquoise beads in it! Will that work? Give me a neck length and I will make one for you gladly but of course you will have to mail me your address so I can ship it when done!

    I really like being on the A-List! **on my knees groveling**

    Lifecruiser: I have full understanding for you at the moment, working as hard as you are!!! Oh, what a lovely bribe offer… Now I almost can’t tell you that for your part, no bribe is needed…. *lol* I really love having you on the A-list!!!


    I’m so perfectly willing to go along.

    You see? I think you need me. I’m good at plumbing and already fixed your broken potty in the captain’s quarters. “Free of charge” I might add–and ya—that in itself is a bribe!!!

    Then, with the pooper scooper, I can serve up the most [notice, I didn't say "moist"] delectable brownies you’ve ever tasted!!

    I’d be good to take along as the galley chief….errrrr, um chef!!! What? You haven’t heard of the ‘chef’s surprise’?

    And the A-Team? Just what exactly do you mean “A”??!!! Arse? Admirable….errrrr, um Admiral? Anni? Ya, okay….I’m the top of the A-Team already —Admirable Admiral Anni!!!!

    And, just in case you’ve never noticed, I’ve had you linked from my OWN ship’s log [blog] for some time!!! And you didn’t even ask!

    ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL Aboard!!! The Life Cruise[r] begins when Admiral Anni steps on deck.

    Lifecruiser: We’re taking notes here ;-)
