Virtual GNO - Calgon Take Me Away Edition

MyFreeCopyright.com Registered & Protected

It's Spring Break for us this week and I'm happy to say my job as event coordinator is almost over. (I don't know how parents that home-school do it. I praise you all!) I've tried to plan fun things for my girls, and their friends, however I think they've spent too much time together and I'm like Julie from The Love Boat trying to keep Zsa Zsa and Eva Gabor from tearing each others wigs apart. Oops. Is that referrence to obscure for some of you? Let say it's like trying to keep Mary Kate and Ashley Olson from tearing each others hair extensions out. You know what I need? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

A Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too)is a social, blog-hopping party. A way for us to meet others without having to get out of cozy p.j.'s and fluffy slippers (Boys, I'm not judging ;->). The Virtual GNO is our chance to hang out with blog friends and hopefully make some new friends as well. Sign Mr. Linky below and join in the blog-hopping fun!

I'm feeling crazy today. Totally goofy. My girls have driven me bonkers and I know what will make me feel better this week.

Time For A Sing-A-Long!

Grab your hairbrush/microphone and sing out loud

"The Love Boat Theme Song"


Again! Again!

I feel a desire for something refreshing. Something that Isaac the Bartender would make just for me while I lounge on the Lido Deck.

Time For A Cocktail!

The Love Boat

Ingredients:
1. Vodka - 3/4 oz.
2. Coconut Cream - 3/4 oz.
3. Pineapple Juice - 1.7 oz.
4. Bols Blue - 0.61 oz.

Stir well and serve in a cocktail glass.

Ah... now my girls arguements don't seem to bother me as much. (I had never heard of Bols Blue. Click the name/link above to find out more :-> )

Time For A Party Game! And A Giveaway!

Oh, I'm not done with The Love Boat. (It's my happy place this week.) I'm going to throw out some words and it's up to you to use your creative writing skills. Time for the game:

"Captain Stubing Walks Into A Bar"

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

I need something to lift my spirits after this week so I can't wait to read what you come up with. And since Spring is upon us I will be sending seeds to start your own Salsa Garden to the person who is the most creative. (And I know you VGNO guests! You're great writers which will make it hard to choose. I just might be helping to start a lot of gardens this Spring!) Confirm in the comments that you've participated. Good luck! (Winner chosen 4/2/09)

This week I would like to spotlight our friend Tasha of "Catch The Drift". She is supporting hand-made by hosting a fantastic "Esty Easter Extravaganza" giveaway. Please visit her site for all the current details.

Now go have fun! Sign in with Mr. Linky below to join the Virtual GNO. Visit those that sign-in. Go blog-hopping! That's what it's all about. And I would love to meet your blog friends. Post A LINK to our party on your blog and hopefully they will join us :->. Send our party into Twitter world. The more the merrier!

  5. The Love Boat, I used to sing that song every Saturday and then go over to Fantasy Island. And you couldn't tell me that place didn't exist. I'm sipping on a martini shaken not stirred cause coconut isn't my thing. Gopher took my bags up to my room and Issac made this drink pretty strong but now I'm seeing Tye Diggs at the bar without a shirt on. Good Lord, this is gonna be a fun ride. Here I go cruising. Hope to run into you.

  6. Can someone please explain to me how Gofer got laid as much as he did? ;)
    I used to looooove The Love Boat! I actually can't believe my strict parents let me watch it... given the debauchery that went on week after week. (Oh, Captain Steubing! Can I rub you bald head with suntan lotion?)
    Happy GNO! I could use that drink about now.

  8. I totally got the reference from the love boat but who are Mary Kate and Ashley???

    Anyway, did you ever see the episode where...

    Zsa Zsa Gabor and Charo were registering to be in the Pacific Princess beauty contest when they saw a handsome young man step out of the pool. Zsa Zsa said to Charo “Shou should Gopher hemm.” “No, no, no” said Charo, “ He has a Lido Deck.” “ Letz go ate some lounge at zi captain’s table and luke for hot men zsere.”

  14. I am pretending to enjoy the Syracuse game with hubby. Sure when I was there I had season tix every year and it was great fun, but I just can't get that invested anymore. VGNO is way more fun!

  15. I am joining for the first time. Please feel free to guide me in the right direction if I am doing the wrong thing. *Which is very possible.*

    Happy GNO!

  21. happy VGNO!!

    I love VGNO, though (as you may have noticed) I started VGNO with a pic and Emma really liked that idea so she wants me to do that every time! lol however just wondering if there's something I'm missing ... do you announce the party theme somewhere or just on VGNO night?? Took me an hour to get tonight's pic done because I suck at photoshop so I use combo of picnik and paint! ;)

    ReplyDelete

  28. I can't believe I totally forgot to hit 'publish your comment' earlier tonight...Blonde Moment! ;)

    I absolutely loved the Love Boat growing up - that was one of my favorite shows to watch when I was over babysitting the neighbors kids... :)

    Happy VGNO Ann, you always throw a great party! :)

  29. I have to tell you what happened. I have the Love Boat theme stuck in my head. So I though my hubby would enjoy it too. I walked in quietly singing, "It's an open smile...to a friendly shore..." then I flung my arms out wide and belted out, "the LOVE BOAT, soon will be making another run". He fell over laughing and asked me, "what brought *that* on?"

  30. Next time warn a girl she has to wax before coming to a cruise party. Otherwise it is just NOT a good thing if you catch my drift! Isaac!!! Make my Love Boat a double!!
