Christmas Shopping With Deanna & Beverly
I'm here again, using the Cappy's Journal to write the events of the day, Aren't I wicked? Giggle.
Don't worry, you won't need to watch out for me. Bev is standing guard by the door. If the Cappy starts coming, she can delay him with a few sultry looks. It always throws him out of sync.
It was time to do some serious Christmas shopping with Bev. As Guinan was such a drag last time, we didn't want her along. She's such a namedropper, as she keeps mentioning all the people she's met over the last 600 years. Bor-ing!
Trisha Lewis and Jennifer Baxter wanted to come along, but Bev & I are both Commander rank. We can't be seen shopping with Ensigns. We do have our positions to consider, don't we?
We were going shopping mainly for presents for our men.
"That's what we want to do!" protested Trisha, "I want to get Geordi a cool new visor with flashing lights, and Jennifer wants to get a trendy new hairpiece for Data's head. It can grow into a ponytail when activated."
"Then you'll have to go by yourselves." said Bev flatly, "Us Commanders are off to the Starfleet Mall."
We arrive at D'Garth's Dresses.
"Let's in and get our dresses for the Enterprise Christmas Party." I suggest.
"I thought we were shopping for our men, Deanna?" replies Bev.
"We are; the dresses we buy will be appreciated by them." I say naughtily.
We break up in a fit of giggles. Aren't we just wicked?
After a couple of hours, we choose our dresses, and leave the exhausted salesman.
Bev goes into Ferengi Fishnets.
"I need something for the dress" she says, with a mischievous giggle.
That's my girl!
After sitting in the Starfleetbucks cafe, having some coffee, we carry on shopping; lots more to do yet!
We go into the Klingonborders bookshop. Bev gets 'The Bumper Book of Dramatic Quotes: a line for every occasion.'
"Jean-Luc will love this; he always wants to say something dramatic during those big occasions. This book will have a feast of over the top phrases."
Shh! Don't tell him she's bought that, will you? It's a surprise for the Cappy!
We next go in to Mbana's Music. There's something here that I want for Will.
I see a beautiful handcrafted trombone; it's gorgeous, and have it engraved, 'To Will, my one true love, Deanna.'
"What about Worf?" asks Bev quietly.
"He's our girly secret!" I sneakily say. Aren't I a naughty Counselor? Giggle!
We then head into Klingon Battlepower, the warfare shop.
The shopowner, Vborl, shows me a beautiful handcrafted bat'leth. I ask him to engrave in tiny writing, 'To Worf, my one true love, Deanna.'
Shhh! no telling now! Giggle!
After beaming our goods to the Enterprise, we go the Ferengi Bar. The only way to relax after intensive shopping is to drink quite a few Bajoran Brandies.
A few hours later, we stagger out, and beam up.
Bev is talking outside to the Cappy, giving him the charm, and saying how she looks forward to being at the party with him.
I finish this and will walk out to greet him. he won't notice after Bev has been chatting him up!
Ah, the power of us women!
