...Following the hectic May Birthday schedule, the weary crew of the burned, battered and just plain abused pirate ship conclude their 10 or so day cruise around the Atlantic Ocean. Well-rested and refilled with rum barrels, the ship makes a course towards it's next destination. Someone calls out "Where to now, Captain?". Isa replies, "Let me make a few calls and double-check." After several furious phone calls and lots of muttering, the crew hears Isa shriek, "They're both lost!!! Plot course to Tahiti!! That's where I'd be if I were lost!!!"

...Meanwhile on some small spit of beach, Purdy and Beerman crawl out of the surf...
Purdy: "Beerman, this doesn't look like O'Hare Airport to me."
Beerman: "Sure it is - there's a landing strip just over that hill."
Purdy: "No it isn't."
Beerman: "Yes, it is."
Purdy: "Is not!"
Beerman: "Is too!"

And in a fevered pitch, the two castaways begin hurling coconuts at each other, all to the amusement of the monkeys in the trees. Oops - knocked one of those monkeys clean off that branch. That's gonna hurt...

...Meanwhile, the ship has changed direction and heads toward Tahiti in search of the Birthday Girl and Boy. As it sails slowly onward, the crew has time to find the sheet music for the real Happy Birthday song and practice. Voices blend together as they sing...

I'm goin' back to Salome
Things could get ugly if I stay
And I was just leavin' anyway
I could sink or swim
But then again
I could go back to Salome

HAPPY BIRTHDAYS HEATHER AND KRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's knowing you will have a wonderful day (June 7th) filled with friends, food, liquor, music, more liquor, more music, maybe some more food, and much more liquor!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Don't expect pressies as we need the money for the beer fund.)

... As the sun goes down on the little spit of land, Purdy and Beerman have run out of coconuts and beaned almost every monkey in proximity. Last seen (or heard), they are now trying to find a soccer ball named Wilson.

As the sun continues to go down, Isa is tired of trying to get everyone to sing the Birthday Song and goes off to drink some rum. She thinks Tahiti is only 14 days away as the crow (or albatross) flies...

PS: Isa knows these two are way early but since she will be off celebrating them, she won't have time to post... ;)

Happy early birthday to both of you!

In a spray of nasty canal water, a lone paddle-weilding figure trips out of an oversized boat and lands with a slosh on the dock.

It is I, Chestwina, the dripping voice of birthday wishes, here to make tappy on your behind with my trusty birthday paddle! I offer you gift of moldy life jacket and slightly used butt pad. I give you water bottle but it went overboard in my attempt at gallant entrance!

I also offer you super-duper recipe for not-watered-down Sangria:

Take 1 bottle red wine. Put in bowl.
Take 1 bottle white wine. Empty overboard.
Take 1 bottle bubbly stuff, put in bowl.
Take rum, pour some in bowl, some in mouth, some on life jacket to kill smell.
Take bottle vodka and hit undesirables on head.
Take fruit and mix in bowl.
Feed fruit to fish.
Drink from bowl like nomad.


I hope you make happies all week long! Enjoy Chickenago and TP meetup! I send spirit to be there and partake in madness!

And then, tripping over feet, Chestwina falls into the i-think-the-Mafia-dump-bodies-here waters of the canal and floats off to new adventures...
