Breakfast in Babbage - Money

Money - ah yes, the love of which is the root of all evil. Can't live with it, can't live without. Parted quickly from a fool. It comes as no surprise that filthy lucre is the subject of many a tune. And now the subject of a Breakfast in Babbage, with the Duke of Argyll, Mr. Edward Pearse, and Radio Riel.

Mssrs. Elilka Sieyes and Elina Koskinen looked quite dapper as the Monopoly gentlemen. (Though if there are two, I suppose that would make them Duopolists.)

The set was a collection of the familiar, including "Money for Nothing" (Dire Straits), "Big Time" (Peter Gabriel), "Money Changes Everything" (Cyndi Lauper), "Money Talks" (AC/DC), "Take the Money and Run" (Steve Miller Band), and, of course, Pink Floyd's "Money," and lesser-known songs, such as Hank Williams Jr.'s "Lawyers, Guns, and Money." Naturally, Mr. Pearse found time for a pair of Weird Al songs.

Mr. Pearse on the dance floor, looking like that Connery bloke. Well, if Connery were born in 1850 or so.

Miss Scarlet Jaggernov, dressed in homage to Jill Masterson, the unlucky lass in Goldfinger who ended up painted head to toe in gold.

A surprise guest: Mr. Shaunathan Sprocket, former Mayor of New Babbage. Mayor Sprocket looked in good health.

The best I could do costume-wise was to wear something green, the color of (U.S.) money.

This brute was Totally Not Doctor Obolensky. It was good to, ah, not see the doctor after a considerable time.

Miss Breezy Carver, as elegant as always. I would love to have her wardrobe...but I would not to justice to it as she does.

Mr. Ed Vectoscope seems to have had an unfortunate run-in with a Las Vegas casino, losing his shirt...among other articles of clothing. Still, he seemed to be in good spirits about the whole thing.

Miss Stereo Nacht and Miss Gabrielle Riel dance.

Always a fun time at Breakfast in Babbage. (And don't think we all didn't catch the eye roll at the Weird Al song!)

I'll admit to doing a double-take at seeing Mr. Sprocket, whom I had never met before.
