As you might have read here before, I’m holding an admission round for becoming an A-Team Cruiser.

Admission round #1 is now closed.

The A-Team Cruisers is guaranteed a “first class ticket” to our cyber event we’ve been planning this year – on top of anything else that will show up here…

Keep your eyes open for more announcements!

This is some of the questions that will be answered later:

- How many excursions you can expect this year
- What are some of the highlight destinations
- Will entertainment be provided
- If gambling is allowed
- What exactly is going on

No pressure though, this is all about HAVING FUN :-) )

Who made it into the A-Team and why?

Our frequent visitor that even show us with brilliant stories and photos when she is travelling the world, has wild witty comments that always crack me up, lovely cats and paintings and at last the post: “Funny situation” among others.

She need this ship to cruise the world. She also is very curious and ask a lot of questions which always is a good thing! She has a very witty humor and lovable personality with a lot of weird charm. Always willing to be the most embarassing moment at any given party… And we heavily need that, dont we? *lol* She has also already bribed us earlier with a bucket of DUCKS and you know I can’t say no to that!

A faithful cruiser for some time that even have me on her bloglines as a “Must Read” every day! And the bribe, Mmmmmm. The full 5 course meal with wine, champagne and chocolates personally cooked by her sounds absolutely delicious – she sure know what this hungry monster likes ;-) Not to mention all her adorable puppies!!!

For a Swede it’s always good to collaborate as well as compete with a Norwegian and vice verse. We’ve been on each others blogroll for long and he writes excellent posts about Norway. This application have an extra neighbour-star in the marginal of course :-)

Just the fact that he’s too humble and needed to toss a coin 13 times to submit his application would almost be enough reason, but of course the mentioning of him bringing in one of his gross cases of vintage champage helped me in the decision too ;-) . Further bonus admission points he got because the did put up a link to the admission post! And that he has challenged me several Friday’s with bad jokes which I just love.

that frolicsome kid:
This is to mix in some youth among us. I hope he is contagious, because he writes excellent posts! He said it himself: “I’m a soul stripped off its body and flesh, and bones…” I say: … and who can resist a stripper? ;-) Besides that, we need some one to be our DJ, that choose more young, cool music, don’t we? *lol*

She is SO good at bribes! She offered her twin sons (almost 14 years old), that eat like horses; are lazy as shite and deserved to be ragged out on her blog at least once a month… And she is a wife to a Swede. That facts will be hard for any one to beat…. *lol*

She is not only an old (but young-looking!) regular cruiser, but as she speak fluent Spanish it gives a huge bonus admission point besides the fact that you’re such a lovely person:-) And come on, her name? We just love the mar! Not to mention: Barsssscelona!

Even though she struggle with a bad internet connection (some of the non perks of living in a third world, under developed nation such as costa rica. She offer stupid stories from costa rica, and other foolish ways. We love stupid stories, don’t we?

She know the Swedish word for asshole, which can come in very handy, don’t you think? The fact that she also bribed me with re-imported djungelvrÃ¥l (very salty Swedish licorice) and a huge bottle of Champagne don’t have anything at all to do with it ;-)

Hootin’ Anni:
She is good at plumbing and already fixed our broken potty in the captain’s quarters. Then, with the pooper scooper, she can serve up the most [notice, she didn’t say “moist”] delectable brownies you’ve ever tasted!! She’d be good to take along as the galley chief….errrrr, um chef!!! OR as she herself put it: “I’m the top of the A-Team already —Admirable Admiral Anni!!!!”
ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL Aboard!!! The Life Cruise[r] begins when Admiral Anni steps on deck. At least she think so…

This is for special reason, not only because she is an old blogger friend. We’ll take her along as encourangement and a recovery cruise because she has been so ill lately. She need to get back in shape again. We’ll give her an order to get well.

aka R’acquel:
Oh the humanity! She has bribed me with a copy of the Newtown Mums Book of Poo – with some incredible shitting & farting stories revolving around toilets – no bullshit! She also once made some buns from our Lussebullar recipe! Say no more!

A-Team Cruisers: You’ll be getting more information later. If you have any questions you’re welcome to email the captain of the cruise: lifecruiserteam at gmail dot com.

Don’t miss to mingle with the other A-Team Cruisers too :-)

To the rest of you that didn’t make it this time:


I encourage you to:

1) Link to us in your personal blogroll, not only by meme blogrolls.

2) Tell us about it and we’ll put you under The A-Swab Team in our sidebar which is step 1 in becoming an A-Team Cruiser.

3) Work your way up until next admission round by visit and commenting our posts often, write posts about us – or offer us some very heavy bribes we can’t resist ;-)

There will still be some first class tickets and many ordinary tickets for our cyber event later on, but it demands that you’re on our A-Swab Team at least.

As much as I would have loved to take the whole blogosphere with us, that just isn’t possible since we would sink this ship.

The heavy Cruise Ball we’ll have might sink it anyway ;-)

    *singing* Yo ho ho ho, a pirate’s life for me!!!

    Wait, wrong cruise? LOL?

    ahem…*regaining composure*… Pass the cavier please my dear Mrs LC.

    Lifecruiser: So, we’re beginning to party even before the ship cruise has begin huh? We haven’t weigh anchor yet! You’re a quayside sailor ;-)


    Thanks for adding me to the cruise!! I’m always up for a cruise, and with the way I’ve been feeling of late I think I need one!!! ;)

    Lifecruiser: Yes, that was what I thought to! Warmth welcome aboard :-)

    mar SPAIN said:

    Graaaaacias, dahhhhhling! I am so thrilled I can hardly stand it!!!!!

    Lifecruiser: You’re welcome aboard mar :-)


    Now…..Got my bags packed and ready to board. We need plenty of rum to go along with all the work, plumbing, I am sure to have to fix! The rum is most important.

    It works as an antiseptic for ME silly. NOT to swab the deck with—-like SOME would assume.

    And long about the end of the 1st cruise, I’m sure that I won’t have to ask “But, why’s the rum gone?” Will I?

    Me, Hootin’ Anni….need rum!!

    And I need plenty of brownie ingredients so—keep ‘em comin’

    “Where’s my pooper scooper? I know it’s around here some where?”

    The Admirable, Admiral Anni has come aboard, Captain!! Reporting for duty.

    Lifecruiser: You seem very keen to weigh anchor…. We’ve have to fill up the storage first. And drawing new plans for a bigger cargo room for this cruise ship for all the “water of life” we have to take with us for all our friends…

    Then, on the other hand, they’ll be emptied rather fast!

    Uuuuuuh, aaaaaaah – I´m so honored! For making this bright moment possible I´d like to thank Mrs Lifecruiser, my parents, my family, my liqueur store at the corner, Malaco candies and…

    … and I guess I´ve been watching to much “Grammy Awards” last night :oops:

    Tack, tack, tack =)

    Lifecruiser: I’ll come back with more info as soon as I’ve got rid off the handover from all the bribes…. Can’t have a drunken captain, can we? *lol*

    Hmm don’t know (shy glance) are there cute male stewarts on board ? And then what does it mean “young people” amongst us ! Sounds like if you were a Oma and you are only a little girl compared to my high age !
    But young stewarts or not if there is a Casino I am on board ! I like gambling and to win (!!!) of course !
    and then : Is there a swimming pool ?

    and shops
    and good food
    an hairdresser (for you)
    a masseur
    a beauty salon (for me)
    and a moved sea ? I like to watch people looking green and hanging over board !

    Lifecruiser: Hrmpfff!!!! What standard do you think this ship has???!! OF COURSE we have all that except the moved sea – the captain can’t stand that….*lol* Only thing moving here is us! Plenty!

    I have partied with some of these potential cruisers and they are great to have around. Some I have only passed by on occasion! They all sound wonderful to me!

    Great picks Mrs L!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I think we’ll just cruise along swell all of us!!!! We’ll have a shipwreck afterwards probably, but what the heck…. *lol*


    Coolness! I’m THE DJ, LOL! :lol: This is so cool, thanks for adding me to the Cruise List! :smile: Am I like…the youngest there? Pooh, no champagne/beer for me, hahaha! =P

    And hey, I don’t strip for fun, it’s a “painstaking process” hahahaha! :grin:

    I remember my family and I went to have a pre-Christmas dinner at a river cruise in Perth. And wow, the people on board sure know how to have fun! :eek: :grin:

    Lifecruiser: Maybe you’ll be permanently marked after cruising with us…. *LMAO*

    Gina SWEDEN said:

    Lifecruiser: Well, this ship will have plenty of room for you :-) And very BIG fridges and many computers, really a dreamworld….

    Gina SWEDEN said:

    Lifecuriser: Taht sounds like an excellent idea really. No Systemet here!!!

    RennyBA NORWAY said:

    Eyey, captain! I’m ready, flattered, honored and with a lot of butterflies in my stomach. Where will this journey take me? First time recruiter into the cyber ocean. Will we cross the equator and meet King Neptune too? I’ve never been baptisteries, at least not by him.
    Captain: You have collected an excellent staff for this journey and I’m sure we’ll make a smashing good team:razz:

    Lifecruiser: No answers revealed in advance. Mor info is coming shortly :-)

    Oh, happy days are here again. I’m gonna sing all night long. The police I sent on vacation, and the neighbours got free earprops. Anna, she’s sleeping. And she got some cottonrolls in her ears. The cats are dancing on the table and all the mices are flown away.
    I’ll think I’ll take a backup before it really takes off here.
    happy days are here again….

    :) ) :) ) :) )

    Yes, Queen of the Royaume de A-team. What’s your demand for the Day? A story about our CIO’s? It’s allready there, proactive as your humble servant use to be.

    Lifecruiser: So, you had some rock’n roll there hey? *lol* Practising before our cruiser I hear. Good, you may need the practise… he he…. The CIO’s story made me thinking of the fact that we may transform from a de lux cruise to a Noah’s Arch if we shall bring aboard all pet’s too ;-)


    Excellent Choice with Aka Racquel… She’s awesome!! As for the book of poo you’ll shit yourself laughing over some of the stories….

    thanks again for visiting my blog

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it seem to be very promising, so I’m really looking forward to that shitty book arrival…. It will crack me up I’m sure and I’m not talking about mu butt now…. *LMAO*

    My bags are packed and I’m ready to go. I remembered to pack all my gourmet cooking books, and my stash of the finest chocolate!

    Lifecruiser: YES, bring it on girl :-) ))))

    Left on the dock again. I’m linking to you right now Captain as in this cold winter I’ll come and warm my chilly hands by your cyber fire and have a goal of becoming an A-Team Cruiser! I am in the USA in Wisconsin (Near Minneapolis/St. Paul) and Wisconsin is known for it’s dairy farms and cheese. I know people. People that make cheese. Would cheese be a good bribe? It’s really, really good cheese. :-) I’ll watch from the dock for now!

    Lifecruiser: Welcome Balou, just say Cheese ;-)


    gotcha ya. i don’t have time right now to write because my house is a major mess like always. we leave the workers for half a second and they’ve managed to scratch my brand new furniture, break a few tiles and this is the easy stuff.
    ciao for now

    Lifecruiser: OMG! That sounds no gooood at all! Hope everything is going to solve eventually :-)
