...Nursing severe hangovers, the Captain and crew finally realize another birthday is just around the corner. They also realize that the Martini Blimps is the only way they will arrive to their destination in time. It's not easy to sort of circumnavigate the planet in 24 hours or less. With the (proven to be inaccurate) GPS and 1786 nautical maps in hand (always useful on a blimp...), the crew set aloft from Monte Royale.

"Captain, doesn't circumnavigate mean we end up back in Montreal?" "Why yes, Matey, it does. But, if you read the text correctly, you will see we're only "sort of" circumnavigating the globe." "The globe? Isn't that an old theater in England?" "Correct again. But, it's also this big blue ball we live on - you know, the one we call earth?" "Oh, right." While the discussion continues about the Globe Theater versus the planet earth, the blimp sails it's way to the country next to the Land Down Under...

"Captain, are we headed to Australia again?!" "No, we're headed to the country next to Australia. Let me give you a hint. The initials are NZ. Any clue there, Matey?" "No ma'am. Not one. Could you be more specific?" "Ah... The capital is Wellington." "Wellington? Wasn't he a general or something?" "Yes, he was - something like that - but this is a city." "We're going to Wellington, Florida? Aren't we a bit off course for that?" "No matey, we're not. And, we're not going to Wellington, New Zealand either. We're headed to Auckland." Captain, Auckland is in Australia. So we are headed back to the Land of OZ." With that, the Captain gives up all hope of explaining their destination and just checks the GPS...

Soon, the blimp, captain and crew arrive at the Goat Island Marine Reserve. Unsure how to find the birthday girl, the crew sets out on a snorkeling adventure instead... (Try singing with a snorkel in your mouth.)

Loves got teeth and she bites so hard
Leaving you for dead like a deadly shark
And she doesn't leave a lot to be saved

I was swimming in the harbour of your smile
Splashing in the ocean like a child
I didn't know what dangers lurked there
Just beyond the waves - Shark attack!

Well she chewed me up and she spat me out
I didn't want to meet a maneater
Shark attack!

Please don't mess around with me
I'm a shark fatality, in the sea
I'm the one with the bleeding heart
I thought you were a real lifesaver
And life for once would do me a favour
But babys just a butcher, and her teeth are razor sharp
Shark attack!

Well she chewed me up and she spat me out
I didn't want to meet a maneater
Shark attack!

And I'm lost at sea and I'm an amputee
And there was slaughter in the water when I fought her
Shark attack!

Hey!... Hey!.... Hey!..... Hey!!

Shark attack!

Well she chewed me up and she spat me out
I didn't want to meet a maneater
Shark attack!

Well I'm lost at sea and I'm an amputee
And there was slaughter in the water when I fought her
Shark attack!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (May 17th) filled with friends, food, cocktails (of course) and lots of pressies!!!! Enjoy the day!!!!!!!

...Having lost the crew to the undersea world for a short while, Captain Isa heads off to nurse her hangover and chart the next birthday trip as May is a busy month...
