...As the crew waves good bye to the Norwegia Overlord and family, they question the identity of the people with whom they have just spent time. Rumor aboard ship - The REAL Norwegia Overlord (and family) are enjoying a much needed vacation sunning themselves on the beautiful Malaysian beaches. Doesn't matter. The (possible) impostor enjoyed the birthday party and the crew is keenly aware that time is running out to get to their next destination...

The pirate ship heads a course swift and true, arriving in a timely manner in Belfast Lough and heads up the River Lagan. (At least they knew enough not to head to Montreal.) As the crew ties to dock, a mysterious figure emerges from the not-so-foggy gloom and boards the ship. "Captain Isa, is everything ready?" "Yes sir! Not a detail gone unnoticed." "And the iced champagne?" "Well, sort of... Remember, someone is not drinking these days..." "So true but please pour me a whiskey." "Nervous about... You know...???" "No, I have to sing in public." "Good point." And with that, Captain Isa hands the stranger a double of Bushmills.

While the crew completes the last minute preparations, another mysterious figure emerges from the not-so-foggy gloom. "She's arrived!!!!" Captain Isa greets their guest with hugs and two-cheek kisses. "So happy to see you again, T. Welcome aboard!! The captain ushers Tway to the "ring-side table for two" as the ship sets sail for a midnight cruise of the lough.

Wondering why she is sitting alone, it quickly becomes apparent that a stage show (in her honor) is commencing... "It is my pleasure to introduce tonight's entertainment - none other than that World Famous Rip Van Winkle Cunningham of Belfast, Ireland!!!!!" (Rounds of applause echo through the ship.) Hit it, boys!!!!!

Well you like flowers and I like liquor
(Pirates: "She likes liquor. Oh, but look what you did to her... Now she won't be drinking until who knows when.")
Your way’s nice, but my way’s quicker
I been watchin’ you all night long
And I gotta say something, don’t care if it’s wrong
I’m feelin’ outrageous
Hope it’s contagious
I want to spend the night with you

Well I’m the kind of boy who’s slow and lazy
(Pirates: "Well, he's not that lazy. He does have a paying job.")
Little bit lost and a little bit crazy
(Pirates: "Maybe a little lost but definitely crazy. He's Irish or British or whatever.")
You’re the kind of girl who wakes at dawn
Walkin’ through the kitchen till the soaps come on
Well baby it’s only
That I’m feelin’ lonely
And I want to spend the night with you

Well I’m no good at sweet romancin’
Pillow talk or limbo dancin’
I’m just a fool hidin’ from the rain
Sittin’ with a bottle of cheap champagne
(Pirates: "Sorry, no cheap champagne - only really cheap rum by the barrel.")
But I’m feelin’ funky,
Drunker than a monkey
And I want to spend the night with you
(Pirates: "Too late for that! Look at what you have done - no more limbo dancing until November.")

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you (and the bump) have a wonderful day (May 15th) spent with family, friends, complete strangers!!!! Enjoy your (much needed) vacation because you know what's waiting for you when you get home. (Mortgage payments.)

...Captain Isa takes time to sit down and watch the RVWC floor show because after that - it's private time for the two love birds... (Like they need it...)
