...Having spent the last few days in the Land Down Under, the pirates have dropped Master Miles back on shore safely and in time for bed. Okay, it was a couple of days ago. Doesn't matter. They've switched from blimp to boat and are very near their next destination. Problem there - the destination is in the desert. Not a lot of boat traffic in the desert. In fact, there's only artificial lake boat traffic in the desert. (Well, maybe they have one REAL lake... Doubtful... It's a desert...)
"Captain, how are we to get from here to that big piece of sandy land with big neon lights?" "Ahhh, Matey, I'm thinkin' we book some flights as soon as possible." "Captain, you mean we get to fly in really big airplanes?" "Well, yes but only one sort of big airplane - book 45 seats and make it snappy!" "Captain... How are we paying for this?" "No problem Matey, I just won a fortune playing internet poker! Book the seats!" "Captain, I hate to say this... You were playing with fake money... You didn't win anything..." "Matey, doesn't matter, put the reservations on my credit card and we'll plunder the casinos when we get there." "Okay, Captain..."
With that, the crew board the plane (hoping they get to pillage and plunder in the desert) and magically land on a sand-covered tarmac. As the pirates disembark, oooohhhhs and aaaaahhhhs echo through the dry dusty air. "Captain, we saw all the sparkly lights as we came in for a landing but I don't see them now." "No worries, Matey - you will" The Captain waves her hand and the giant mini-bus quickly arrives on the scene. "To the Bellagio, Cabby!" Upon her command the giant mini-bus speeds off to the hotel. Hoping they won't have to go searching for the birthday boy and he will just be hanging out in their general location, the crew start to sing...
Bright lights city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
I got a whole lotta money that's ready to burn
So get those stakes up high
There's a thousand pretty women just-a waiting out there
They're all living just the devil may care
And I'm just a devil with love to spare
So viva Las Vegas...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (Jan. 29th) spent with family, friends, showgirls, gamblers, ramblers, and assorted other riff-raff. ENJOY!!!!!!
Realizing that she had not really won any real money playing internet poker, Captain Isa quickly tries to round up the crew as they will not be paying their bills in LV....
