...With last night's musical entertainment playing until dawn on Beeristan, the Captain had a rough time getting the crew back onboard the ship. But, she was successful and the trade winds have once again been favorable too. "Captain, I think I see our next destination just ahead! Where do we put into port this time?" "Well Matey, I'm not exactly sure. The birthday girl has been a bit vague about her location lately so I only have the United Kingdom to work with." "Um, Captain, that means it could take awhile to find her then?" "Yup, we may have to form search parties and knock on every hospital's door." But Captain, why would she be in the hospital? No one should be sick on their birthday. That's just not right!" "No, no, Matey, she's not sick - she's working. Didn't you read the "What Made You Smile" thread the other day? She's been granted a staff nursing job in an intensive care unit at her favorite hospital." But Captain, what hospital is that? Couldn't we just go there?" As the Captain points to her previous statement of not knowing the name or whereabouts, the crew ignore her and go about donning their nurse's outfits so they will blend in at the assorted hospitals.
Last seen, the crew had divided into the aforementioned search parties and began to scour the UK for the birthday girl. Half could be heard yelling, "Come out! Come out! Wherever you are Miss Clarabell!" while the rest just decided to break into song...
Seaside whenever you stroll along with me
Im merely contemplating what you feel inside
Meanwhile I ask you to be my clementine
You say you will if you could but you cant
I love you madly
Let my imagination run away with you gladly
A brand new angle highly commendable
I feel so romantic can we do it again?
Can we do it again sometime Id like that
Fantastic cest la vie mesdames et messieurs
And at the peak of the season
This time of year its so fashionable
I feel like dancing in the rain
Can I have a volunteer?
Just keep right on dancing
What a damn jolly good idea
Its such a jollification as a matter of fact
So tres charmant my dear
Underneath the moonlight
Together well sail across the sea
Reminiscing every night
Meantime I ask you to be my valentine
You say youd have to tell your daddy if you can
Ill be your valentino
Well ride upon an omnibus and then the casino
Get a new facial start a sensational
Seaside rendezvous so adorable
Seaside rendezvous ooh
Give us a kiss!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLARA!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (August 8th) filled with friends, family, cocktails, pressies and a day away from emptying bedpans. My apologies for being just ever-so-slightly "late" but it's still your birthday if my clock is correct!!! Enjoy!!!!!
...Isa and the crew continue their search for Clara but have now resorted to checking all the pubs because the hospitals were completely devoid of rum..
