02:24 am - I'll swashbuckle any landlubber me sees, ye scurvy dogs!
This has to be short because I have to sleep.

I just got back from Thea's pirate party. It doesn't matter that you don't know who Thea is. The short answer would be that she's somebody I knew in high school and with whom I lost touch shortly after I graduated. Anyway, she and Monica had a Pirate Party and attendees were encouraged to dress and talk as pirates.

I do not have pirate garb. The only Ren Faire garb I have is more suited to minstrelsy than piracy. The closest thing I have to a bandana is a white handkerchief which is far to small to be tied around my head Gumby-style. The only swords I have are plastic and light up when you squeze them. This is all fine (or so I thought) because Monica had told me I could get away with not dressing up.

I was the only non-pirate. I put on the button Nick and Liz gave me for my birthday (thanks, by the way -- it came in handier than you probably expected it to) and went as a software pirate. Anyway, I had a good time, despite the bonfire smoke giving me an incredible splitting headache. evil_jim was there, and tlhinganhom showed up with Collin a bit later. Keith and Lindsay were there. The never-before-mentioned-in-my-livejournal Caleb put in an appearance which suprised everybody. The geek in the air was so thick you could cut it with a knife, what with all the Star Trek/Rocky Horror/Monkey Island/Invader Zim/Tomita/Anime/robots/DDR talk going on. It was wonderful.

Now I collapse.

Indeed, I didn't think either of us expected it to uh, "come in handy" at any given point. Though we did expect you to rub the "ye survy dogs" line of it in your United Way e-mail editors' faces.

And rub I did! Oh, how I rubbed!

You can make of that what you like.

Garmonbozia for the soul.
