...having narrowly escaped Arif trying to give back all the lovely pets he received as gifts from the captain and crew, the pirate ship made a hasty retreat back to Beeristan. For several weeks everyone has been able to hang out at the beach bar, frolic in the sand, collect coconuts and just relax. But, the frolicking has come to an end as the boisterous band of pirates must embark on another adventure...

"Alright crew, grab your winter wear Don't forget your wool socks and boots. It's cold where we're headed." "Captain, can't we just stay here and send the Martini Blimp to fetch the birthday girl?" "No, we can't. That wouldn't be fair now would it?!" "Sure it would. She likes coconuts. The beach bar is stocked with lots of Bailey's. We could even make a cheesecake." "That's all well and good matey, but there's a rumor there's a special event happening and our help is needed." Captain, it's cold there. We aren't going!" "Listen up crew, stop whining! How would you all like to pillage a few jewelry stores? There are lots of sparklies... I know how much you all like sparklies..." And with that the crew begin chanting "SPARKLIES" and don their winter wear, including the socks and boots. "Captain, can we still take the Martini Blimp?" "Yes, we can take the Martini Blimp. Hurry with those boots or we'll be late!"

After hours in the air, the blimp and the bundled up crew find their destination. Seems a local resident (through his connections with the traffic department) timed all of the stop lights to create a landing strip. The Utrechtians weren't overly thrilled about that, but hey, it's not their birthday now is it! Soon the Captain and crew disembark. As they march through town looking for jewelry stores to pillage, they happen to spy the birthday girl with a very tall blonde gentleman. "Captain, is that who we think it is? Has he really popped THE question?" "I don't know for sure, Maties, but it does appear they are ring shopping doesn't it." Quickly, the crew enters the shop and well, do what they do best. Help pick out sparklies and sing...

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond on my finger!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (Dec. 20th) filled with family, friends, lots of Baileys, cheesecake, and that you find exactly what you are looking for. Something sparkly!!! Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...While the crew helps Nikki decide... Well, more like stuffing their pockets with gems while the shop clerk is distracted, Captain Isa heads off to find a Baileys Bar...
