...After suffering a minor setback while leaving the random port somewhere around London, Captain Isa and the crew have had to make alternative arrangements in order to reach their next destination in a timely manner. Though the crew successfully extracted themselves from the drink and returned to ship, the pea soup-thick fog caused the navigator navigating troubles. Seems putting the ship in reverse was not an option and it was full speed ahead right into the pier. Sadly, the ship will be in dry dock for repairs for a few days. (Such is life, the crew has to return to the UK very soon anyway.) Luckily, and after a few fevered phone calls, the Isa Manor Martini Blimp has been restocked, picked up it's passengers, flown at lightning speed and has now been spotted hovering over a mysterious patch of land somewhere around Melbourne. Thanks to the exemplary aerobatic (and navigational) skills of the Isa Manor Martini aviation team, the blimp has perfectly landed in front of two very large titanium doors in the Middle-Of-Nowhere-Melbourne. The crew along, with a special guest, disembark and knock on the doors...

Outside: Knock, knock...
Inside: Who's there?
Outside: Buster Poindexter.
Inside: Who?
Outside: You know, David Johanson aka Buster Poindexter.
inside: Who?
Outside: Pizza deliver for Peter The Shared Supreme Overlord Of All Things TP.
Inside: Well, why didn't you just say that in the first place!

And with that, the two very large titanium doors open with a whoosh-like sound that could deafen an elephant. (Well, they have those large ears - doesn't take much.) Upon entering the Daams Dungeon of the Doomed, quickly building a small stage, hooking up the sound equipment and setting out 120 pizzas of varying styles, Dexter (using the crew as back-up vocals) breaks into song...

See people rocking -- Hear people chanting -- Feeling hot hot hot
Keep up this spirit -- Come on let's do it -- Feeling hot hot hot
It's in the air - Celebration time
Music sweet - captivate your mind
We have this party song - This fundamental jam

So we go rum-bum-bum-bum
Yeah we rum-bum-bum-bum
Feeling hot hot hot -- Feeling hot hot hot - Oh Lord


Ole ole - ole ole / Ole ole - ole ole
Ole ole - ole ole / Ole ole - ole ole

EE-yes girls

People in the party - hot hot hot
People in the party - hot hot hot
They come to the party know what they got
They come to the party know what they got
I'm hot -- You're hot -- He's hot -- She's hot
I'm hot -- You're hot -- He's hot -- She's hot
(Real hot) -- (Real hot) -- (Real hot) -- (Real hot)
Ha-ha-ha - Oh Lord

HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY PETER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day filled with family, friends, and all the things that truly make you happy. Hopefully, that new little one will not decide to make an appearance on your special day - but then again - what a great birthday present. Anyway - ENJOY!!!!!!!!

And with that, Captain Isa jumps onstage to do her solo only to be gagged and bound by the rest of the crew. Sadly, her moment of glory never arrives as the pirates have heard her singing in the shower and it's not a pretty sound. She hops off to the martini bar in hopes someone will at least remove the ropes from her hands and duct tape from her mouth so she can drown her sorrows...

Heeheehee - that's would be Sam's birthday in May. But, considering they are Evil Identical Siamese Twins attached at the pinky, I can understand your confusion.

Now this sounds like a party I'll have to attend! All that pizza -- I hope there's pepperoni..... And not to mention the illustrious birthday celebrity. Happy Birthday, Peter and we're hoping for many more! :) :)

Thanks everyone! It's been a great day so far and pizzas were indeed part of the occasion. We visited Giant Steps in Healesville near here for a lunch with those of the Daams family that are in the country (ie, dr.pepper, travelmama, dadmin, Janelle, mrs eric and young Miles of course). Some had pizzas, others had more sophisticated things like "turmeric chicken served with spinach and red lentils". That was my choice.

They say you don't feel any older when b'days come around. But turning 30, for some reason I do actually feel older. Should be easier to remember at least - those late 20s confused me, sometimes I forgot how old I actually was when people asked

....and in a flash of bright green and slightly pinky skin (summer down under you know), accompanied by the flight crew of the Isa Manor Martini Blimp and several bartenders all singing in tune with Duster Bonktexter, comes Admiral Beerman, just in time for the celebrations and the cutting free of Captain Isa........

....and in a nearly as bright flash of green and pink, Admiral Beerman leaps onto the Isa Manor Martini Blimp, accompanied by several bartenders, and proceeds to sky-write Happy Happy Happy many kilometers above the sun bleached land of Under Down. Unfortunately, too many martinis make for bad spelling, and the sky is emblazoned with Ha-Pee Ha-Pee Ha-Pee. Well, is thought that makes count, no?
