Happy birthday to the Queen!

It’s a special day today, and not just because of all the corny Star Wars jokes about the date (May the 4th be with you and all that). Our very own Queen of the Blog – the Ice Maiden herself – celebrates the successful completion of another trip around the Sun today.

The story behind Ice’s dramatic appearance here on Sharksworld a number of years ago is certainly an interesting one (depending on whose version of it you listen to)… In a site devoid of bees and lacking in sweet nectar, young Ice was considered the “prize flower” by those in the know and after many unsuccessful attempts to woo her over from her erstwhile blogging home, we finally convinced her to make the switch. The results speak for themselves and more than a few (male) bloggers have revealed to me, in strictest confidence, that they simply wouldn’t hang out here if it wasn’t for the presence of the charming and witty Queen Bee.

Anyway, all jokes aside, we’d like to wish a very happy birthday to our first lady and thank her for all her contributions over the last year. Happy Birthday, Ice. May the blessings pour down richly on you and your family this year.


  • Hope you have a great day Ice ! πŸ˜‰

  • To think that one day in the past God decided to create something special, and then created someone special, and now today we look side ways and think what a blessing it is to have you in our lives and He looks down and say wow look what she made of herself, not all to plan but still My special someone. May you have an awesome day and another cracking good year ahead. Happy birthday Ice.

  • @Pablo Dinero (Comment 46) :

    no the Sinfonia the big mother ship of all times the one bigger than her can’t dock in durbs its to big it takes about 8 thousand passenges the sinfonia takes with crew about nearlly 5 thousand

    its got at 12 decks what a beauty

  • Comment 49, posted at 04.05.11 14:59:01 by chaz Reply

  • @chaz (Comment 49) : Oh… right… ok… havent been in Durbs for a while to be up to date on that. I went on the Symphony, the tiny one that goes between Durban and assorted places in Mozambique. Where you can virtually rub shoulders with the person in the adjoining cabin. Sounds like you had a bit of a better deal πŸ™‚ although the Symphony was fun too..
