Ahoy! The correct answer to that question be pirates, of course. What scurvy bilge rat would put 'ninjas'? If I find the lily-livered landlubbers who answered that way, be assured they will be walkin' the plank before ye can even say 'Arr!'.

Edit: Hey, look, the writer's block question changes! Irritating. It was originally a question about a choice between pirates and ninjas, in case you were curious.

Ahh!!! Only a week left until the best movie of the summer comes out!!

(And no. It's not Snakes on a Plane. Although that looks bad enough I'm seriously considering seeing it.)

Three guesses what it is. :)

Hide the rum!!

Now. The question is. Am I geeky enough to go in my Grace persona or not?

Avast, me hearties! Since it be Talk Like A Pirate Day , I thought p'rhaps some Eddie Izzard Pirate Style might be interestin'. So here it be, courtesy of the English-to-Pirate translator . Arr!

'So, yeah. There was a lot o' that, and we built up empires - we stole countries! That's what you do, that's how you build an empire. We stole countries with t' cunnin' use o' flags! Ahoy! just sail around t' world and stick a flag in. "I claim India for Britain!" They go, "You can't claim us, we live here! 500 million o' us!" "Do you have a flag?" "We don't need a bloody flag! It's our country, you bastards!
"No flag, no country, you can't have one! That's t' rules that I've just made up, and I'm aftin' it up with this gun that was lent from t' National Rifle Association."'

-From "Dress to Kill" - Eddie Izzard

I really really really really want it to be July so that faire season starts. It's like an itch that I can't quite scratch, and it's strange that I'm so hyped. Not that I don't enjoy going to faire but it's usually not a situation where I'm looking forward to it this much. I think part of it may be my costume. It's actually a cohesive costume (except for the boots which...well. I /have/ a pair that are two sizes two small for my feet. Need to fix this and soon!) and I've got a persona which I enjoy, even if I can't do a pirate accent to save my life. So maybe that's it. I wanna go to faire NOW and be a pirate. Arr. :) No patience. That's me. :)
