Virtual Girl's Night Out - The Love Boat Edition

The lovely Ann from 'Ann Again and Again' is having her weekly Virtual Girls Night Out - Come join the fun! There's great music and drinks, fun party games, and even a Mr. Linky to add your blog for VGNO visits! Ann knows how to throw a great party! :)

How about some music? Since Anne mentioned 'Calgon' she got me thinking bubble bath mode... and since this particular song has been stuck in my head for far too long, I figure I might share the wealth and let it get stuck in your heads can thank me later (snicker!):

Ann has a great drink recipe posted for a Love Boat cocktail - sounds yummy, so I've made one just for you:
And how about some delicious tropical fruit as a snack?
Time For Some Fun!

The game Ann came up with this week is "Captain Stubing Walks Into A Bar"

We're supposed to turn these words into a silly, strange, freaky or completely wild little story.

**Lounge **Gopher
**Captains Table **Zsa Zsa Gabor
**Charo **Pacific Princess
**Lido Deck **Pool

Here we go...

Captain Stubing walks into a bar, but it isn't just any old bar, it's the Pacific Princess' infamous Lounge. As he saunters in, he's informed that Gopher is out by the Pool annoying Zsa Zsa Gabor. The Captain reverses his steps and heads out to rescue Zsa Zsa from Gopher's bumbling attempts to impress. His rescue mission is thwarted by Charo, however, as she stops him midway with a request for his company on the Lido Deck. Charo doesn't take 'no' for an answer and drags the poor Captain up on the Lido Deck for what she hopes to be a romantic walk. Luckily Julie comes to his rescue with a manufactured emergency, so the Captain gently disengages Charo's grip from his arm and slips away, determined to complete his rescue mission of Zsa Zsa Gabor. When he arrives at the pool, Gopher is stumbling his way through his quest to invite Zsa Zsa to dinner. The Captain intervenes and invites Zsa Zsa to dine with him at the Captain's Table which she eagerly accepts, throwing a relieved look in the Captain's direction. Gopher sulks as he watches the Captain and Zsa Zsa stroll away arm in arm, heading towards the Lounge for a cocktail.

Oh, and don't forget to stop by JAM from JAM's Own Reality to put your drink order in...she's serving up some yummy drinks tonight just for us! ;)

Stopping in to say that's for bringing by the fruit. I didn't realize that this was the cruise that never leaves sunset. It is beautiful out here. The water is almost a bluish purple and I just saw dolphins.
