As it appears, the single llama that is keeping Eve company in this remote island is the one and sole survivor of the almost extinct species.

As much as I'm sure I'd quite enjoy a day on the island with Eve, that llama better not be named Tina... ##%3^^# Napoleon Dynamite!

So, anyway, back in dreamland... Cupcake gives up trying to contact anybody on the weekend, since the free flowing martinis/beer/mixed drinks have rendered everyone pretty much useless. So, in a fit of panic mixed with genius, she straps a pair of feather wings she's been sewing onto her faithful fawn Rayme's back... and whispers "Godpspeed!" into the deer's ear...

And Rayme flies, flies out towards the island to find Eve... completely unaware of the unravelling feathers on her back, and the approaching mint jelly factory below...

Cupcake knew someone was in trouble but she couldnt figure it out what it was...she decided to call Nikki...

(I seem to recall in the beginning that Nikki was on the doomed airplane since Eve was having drinks with she and Phil. In other words, Nikki had a good excuse for not answering her phone.)

The ringing phone had gone unanswered and the beach chairs at the lake had seen no visitors for quite some some. Instead, on that fateful day, the Isa's had finally taken their long awaited trip to the mint jelly factory. The sweet, pungent fragrence of the crushed mint leaves wafted on the breeze as they approached the gates. Their mouths watered in anticipation of tasting one of the most delectable condiments known to man.

But, even before Mr. Isa reached for the wrought iron handle, feathers began to drift down around them. Quite odd, thought Mrs. Isa, and in the blink of an eye, she also caught the faint sound of whoosh, woosh overhead. Stunned at the sight above them, the Isa's realized they had never seen a flying deer before, and definitely not one that appeared to be molting in mid-flight.

As this creature began to lose altitude, it became apparent that the wings were real and this was not Pegasus. Much to their surprise and relief, the deer touched down with grace and ease, and shook herslef free of the makeshift wings. Around her neck hung a large locket engraved with the words: "Open Me". Mr. Isa followed the instructions while Mrs. Isa examined this beautiful creature for injuries. A note fell onto the ground. Picking it up, Mr Isa read the words: "Eve alone on deserted island. No food, no water. Send help"

Without second thought, the Isa's entered the mint jelly factory, purchased a number of jars and stole several packages of complimentary crackers. They abandoned their tour plan, led the doe to their cabin cruiser and headed toward a small dot of land on the horizon. Not knowing if that would prove to be "Eve's Island", they knew they had to investigate just the same. The barely visible plume of black smoke rising over the water's surface gave them hope that Eve was soon to be found - alive and waiting for mint jelly.

First she ate a piece of durian, then drank a bit of beer. (We forgot to tell her not to mix the two.) Once they came in contact, the durian began to expand, blocking anything else from entering the stomach. With no where else to go, the rest is history.

It was more like:

  • take sip of water
  • read post
  • snort
  • small deluge

Hurts, too!

Hahahaha...somewhere between the flying deer and the stolen crackers I started looking like tax season had taken a toll on me...I am cracking up at my screen once more...
