Ye'll walk the plank, ye scurvy dogs!

To celebrate Becky's birthday, we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean again. Watching all of the credits like a true member of my family, I found my calling: pirate dialect coach. Not a dialect coach for pirates in movies, of course, nor dialect coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates. I'll sail the seven seas, teaching novice pirates to sound more authentic.

In other news, I decided I was tired because I was dehydrated, so I've been drinking vast (avast!) amounts of water today. It hasn't helped so far, so I've decided that since I can't remember the last time I had anything citrus-related, I have scurvy instead. Much more pirate-appropriate, anyway.

You REALLY need to play the Monkey Island computer games. Seriously. REALLY seriously. Even the first ones, though the graphics look ancient now. Plaaaay them. Plaaaay them.

For some odd reason I've taken to calling my can 'me hearty' lately. She looks at me like I need to get a life. I think I'll sew her a little eyepatch...

I'm really good at Donkey Kong N64, but I don't really play any other monkey games.

Heh. Yes, I have ascribed a gender to my can, which I frequently speak to, as I catch it looking at me too often. And I sew little clothes for it.

Of course I meant my cat.

Do you sew clothes for your cat?

gravatar katie - July 30, 2003 - 12:50 PM -

Not yet, but I'm going to start doing pirate accessories. Eye patch, peg leg, shoulder parrot - that sort of thing.

I wonder how she'll take it...

Close enough.

I speak to my can
With single eye, she stares back
I do need a life
