Having scoured Dublin for last Friday's birthday boy - only to find out he'd been in Swissyland visiting family - the Captain decided the crew could have a bit of shore leave in London before the next go-round. Delighted with this turn of events, the pirates vote to take in a few theater shows. It's been quite some time since they had been to a theater with real live actors on stage. Basically, they just do their own versions aboard ship and only have the skeletal remains of their previous foes to use as props. Gotta give them credit, they did put on a right fine interpretation of "A Mid Summer Night's Dream last month. Not wanting to revisit Shakespeare too soon, the crew chose to see "La Cage Aux Folles", "Hairspray" and "Avenue Q". (There appears to be a theme here but the Captain is hard-pressed to put her finger on it at the moment.) Regardless, everyone enjoyed the shows and now must attend to the task at hand...

"Captain, letting us have some fun in London was nice but aren't we running a bit late for our next destination?" "No Matey, this is our next destination." "Captain, I don't mean to differ with you, but we should be sailing into some port in Kuala Lumpur about now." "So right you would be - if the birthday boy were in KL about now. See, that's what a working holiday visa is for - working on holiday. We're sure to find the intended somewhere in the city." "Okay Captain. But why would anyone leave KL for London? The weather is better in KL and so is the food. Well, there is always KFC in a pinch here. Oh, I know, they probably can't get Guinness or Jameson's there. Now it makes sense. He came for the beer and whiskey and KFC."

As the Captain and crew roam the streets of London's theater district, they just have to break into song...

Youre so hot, teasing me
So youre blue but I cant take a chance on a boy like you
Thats something I couldnt do
Theres that look in your eyes
I can read in your face that your feelings are driving you wild
Ah, but boy you're only a child

Well I can dance with you honey
If you think its funny
Does your mother know that youre out?
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that youre out?

(Hey, we haven't called you that in quite a long time - it was overdue!) Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (July 24th) filled with friends, a whole bucket of KFC you won't have to share, lots of beers or a few bottles of wine (your choice), and that the boss agrees with everything you suggest and leaves it at that. Enjoy the day!!

...And while the crew runs through the whole soundtrack from Momma Mia, Captain Isa heads off to pick up her tickets for Dorian Gray and have a few rums before show time...
