Pirates of Pensacola...Chapters 23 - 26
1) Is the glass half empty, or half full?

2) (Other than Bolidar), does true evil exist? Explain.

3) Isaac and Morgan are convicted of numerous crimes, including “swimming to far from shore.” Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Should you have been?

4) What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever heard a bird say?

5) Haiki sounds like it should be the plural form of haiku. Write a PoP related haiku.

6) A character is described as “Not the brightest bulb anywhere there are bulbs.” What’s you favorite euphemism for “stupid”?

7) As a child, were you good at hide & seek? What was your favorite hiding place?

8) What was the most misguided act of chivalry you’ve seen? Is chivalry dead? Should it be?

9) Where was the elusive hiding place of the key to the Sea Patrol boat?

10) Do you have any tattoos? Details, please.

Scrimshaws now being accepted.

Ok, I'll give you an example for number 5, but then that's it. No more talking to myself.
Technically, a haiku should be three lines. First line is five syllables, second is seven, third is five. They do not usually rhyme. (However, we won’t be too particular about exact syllables, will we? I never was any good at following the rules.)
Here’s mine:
A cold sound explodes
Cascading water soars
A leap into the night.

His eyes ask questions
Fascinating beauty smiles
Hearts begin beating

1... hmm.. I read this somewhere...'i don't care if the glass is half empty or half full, i just wanna know who drank my beer!'

2... True evil? uh yeah!! having to shave your legs...

3... no I have never been, though I once wore a hideously awful dress... it should be illegal to wear shoulderpads... that is all I will say about that!

4... Birds don't talk, silly!! Cats on the other hand...
'mama', it totally freaked me out!! Coepernicus only did that when he wasn't feeling well,or was hungry... weirdo cat.

5... I don't do poetry...

6... Two sandwiches short of a picnic...

7... I was alright at it... I would run off and go play in the mud... and build flower people... not really interested in hiding... I do have a horror story though!!
we were playing outside... I was barefoot, this was common for me as a child... hell it's common now... and I ran into this shed, it was dark and I heard CRUNCH!!
I'd stepped on a roach.... a big nasty one...yeah, I'm traumatized for life now.

8... hmmm that's a tough one... I hope it isn't dead... you can be a gentleman without treating someone in a condescending manner... and women who don't appreciate a man who opens the car door for them is silly... it's just nice.

9... in a bottle? Gosh, I don't remember... I should be shot!!!

10... No tattoos... only piercings, and I'm not telling...

this is my favorite... but I'm biased

thank you very much... have a nice day!!

Finally, someone who agrees with my concept of true evil!!

Love your answers, thanks so much for joining us. All of Rubber Duckee's regulars seem to have deserted us, and I was feeling kinda lonely...

1. while i enjoyed bolidar's theories, being something to throw on a person or drop on their heads, i can only state that it depends on where my hormone level is at any moment in time. being old, and ya know... old, it's a constant toss-up.

2. honey, if you don't believe true evil exists, then you are truly naive. the hardest part is recognizing it, cause it does know how to hide.

3. ok, back in high school, i was caught with a joint. taken to the local police station, finger-printed, etc. parents were called and i got the big lecture. a couple weeks later, the girl i was caught with, got called into court. the judge looked at her, asked where i was, opened her file, found mine inside hers, closed her file, and as far as i know, my file is still inside hers.

4. my sister's cockatiel used to have an ongoing "battle" with a mockingbird outside the window. have no idea what half the calls the mockingbird taught it were.

5. sorry, no talent in that area.

6. no real favorites, just whatever the moment calls for, such as "lights are on, but nobody"s home"

7. can't remember back that far, but you have to watch my grandgirls play it! the oldest takes the youngest and "hides" her, behind a tree or a bush. then she goes away, closes her eyes and counts to ten, then walks around saying "where's lizzie? i can't find her". the whole time, lizzie is giggling like crazy, til she gives up and pops out to "surprize" her sister.

8. this is no lie, i once had someone hold a door open for me and it took 3 tries before i could convince him that i wasn't going inside.

9. inside a rum flask in a pile of trash

10. yes. when i turned 39, i decided to not wait til i hit 40 to go thru that weird phase people seem to go thru. so i got a too. now when people ask, i open my blouse and say "it's a phoenix, see." (feenxc) get it? my friend says it's just an excuse to show-off my tits. you'd be surprised at how many men are willing to look at an old lady's tits.

great job. trillian!

Yay! Thanks trillian for picking up the reins on the club here. I just happened to check today for new entries and found your questions. I hope to have some time tonight to answer and scrimshaw. I assume we still e-mail them to RDD?

Ok here goes...

1. If the glass actually has liquid in it then it's always half full. I try to see the positive things in life... not that it's always easy to do so.

2. True evil does exist in many different forms. At the moment I feel it's found in the hearts of men. It is truly evil that men are able to move on and let go and not look back, with such ease, whilst women are left with all the baggage and garbage to deal with for an ongoing future. (Mind you, current circumstances are probably colouring my opinions right now, so don't hold it against me and think that I'm a man-hater because I'm really not!)

3. No I've never committed a crime that I could or should be convicted of.... come close to wanting to murder a few people over the years though!

4. I don't listen to the birds... they mainly go tweet tweet in my area!

5. will get back to you...

6. A sixpack short of a carton/ stubbie short of a sixpack/ but generally write most stupidity off as blondeness or pregnancy brain (it's ok I am pregnant and a natural blonde so I'm allowed to!)

7. I wasn't really a big group game player... but my favourite hiding place was in my imagination or a book.

8. I can't recall any misguided acts of chivalry. I hope it isn't dead... I'm counting on the fact that there's at least one decent male left in the world!!!

9. Haven't read it, but the general consensus seems to be in a drink flask.

10. No I don't... I'm too boring for that! Plus I don't like un-necessary pain either! I did want a butterfly on my bikini line, but I was told that it was a painful place to put it 'cos the less fat you have in an area, the more it hurts, so I decided against it.

11. Trillian, if you'd like to email me a subject for my scrimshaw that may help it along!!!

1) Is the glass half empty, or half full?

I say who cares? Drink the damn water, avoid dehydration, and get on with life.

2) (Other than Bolidar), does true evil exist? Explain.

Yes, true evil exists. I know this because he was in my first grade class. His name was Robbie Jacobson and he made Damien look like a P word that is another name for a cat.

3) Isaac and Morgan are convicted of numerous crimes, including “swimming to far from shore.” Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Should you have been?

I was convicted for public intoxication and vandalism last year when I TP'ed a house. The people thought it was funny and didn't want to press charges, but towns now have zero tolerance policies, so off to jail we went. It must suck being a kid now.

I also was almost convicted on 231 counts of contributing to the deliquency of a minor. This was before zero tolerance (thank GOD), I was 21, and none of the parents pressed charges. I definitely shouldn't have been convicted because I swear I didn't buy the booze, was just guilty of being the only one of age at the party when it got busted...

4) What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever heard a bird say?

My grandpa's parrot sings the other version of the Popeye the Sailor Man song.

I'm Popeye the sailor man
I live in a gabage can
I like to go swimmin'
With bow-legged women
I'm Popeye the sailor man

He was on my Grandpa's ship during WWII, so he has quite a few interesting phrases.

5) Haiki sounds like it should be the plural form of haiku. Write a PoP related haiku.

Let me thunk on this one for awhile, it's late.

6) A character is described as “Not the brightest bulb anywhere there are bulbs.” What’s you favorite euphemism for “stupid”?

Not the brightest crayola in the box.

7) As a child, were you good at hide & seek? What was your favorite hiding place?

I didn't like hide and seek unless I was it. It was hard for me to be quiet long enough not to get caught, so when I wasn't it I would use my cat like skills to climb a really tough tree. I didn't have to be quiet, and they couldn't reach me to make me it.

8) What was the most misguided act of chivalry you’ve seen? Is chivalry dead? Should it be?

On a first date this guy started to open a door for me, changed his mind, and it ended up whacking me in the face. He later explained that I was a real independent woman, so he thought it might offend me.

There was no second date, by the way.

9) Where was the elusive hiding place of the key to the Sea Patrol boat?

It was the flask, right? It's been awhile since I read the book, and my nephew has boosted it because he loves it so much.

10) Do you have any tattoos? Details, please.

No, but I was supposed to get this celtic knot with my friends. I chickened out because I am a baby and do not like any kind of pain at all.

I'm with you, I'm actually pretty much never tempted to inflict pain on myself.

I am, however, frequently tempted to cause pain in certain other people...

I suppose I could answer some myself?

1) Depends on if you're pouring or drinking.

2)Absolutely. In many forms, few of which are obvious.

4)I walked in to a pet store one day and heard someone ask “May I help you?”
“No, thanks, I’m just looking…”
But as I looked for the person to reply to, there was no one minding the store. Odd. Kept wandering, looking at all the cute fluffy things, when someone asked again. Laughed, and asked “Where are you?” Voice replied “where are you?”

Anyhow, finally found a very talkative parrot. Never did find anyone minding the store, though…

6) "A few french fries short of a happy meal."

7) Very. I'd climb up a tall tree or burrow down under some bushes, pull a book out of my pocket, and probably still be there when everyone else gave up and went home.
My hiding skills also came in handy during my years working as a nanny. hehehehe.

8)Guy I worked with kept insisting on carrying my briefcase. Very misguided, considering how often I had to get stuff out of it. That said, No, but it’s certainly on life support. A reasonable degree of chivalry is always appreciated. Actually, even if it’s carried to an unreasonable degree, I still appreciate the thought.

I think I've answered the rest...

1) Sadly, I tend to be a "half-empty" type...I'm working on it.
2) Sure, it's called Michael Jackson.
3) No and no.
4) I like it when people teach their birds to curse.
5) Here goes:
A son abandoned.
A father blinded by greed.
Together again.
6) I thank the Howard Stern show for this one: "horse-toothed jackass" (known as HTJA in our house)
7) I was AWFUL at hide and seek. In our neighborhood, I was the youngest of all the kids. They would tease me by having me hide and then they would all take off to do something else without me. I should be in therapy for this.
8) I think as long as there are men who respect women, chivalry will be alive and well.
9) In the empty flask
10) Are you kidding me? I can barely tolerate having blood drawn. To voluntarily be pricked by a needle hundreds of times is beyond my comprehension.

1-half empty
2-yes, the devil roams the earth.
3-i threw an orange in the pool when I was about 7 and my brother was 3. i was outside the pool gate. my brother was inside the pool gate. i knew my dad would think it was my brother. my dad spanked the hell out of my brother. then the truth became known that I threw the orange in the pool. I got the hell spanked out of me, but it was worth it to get my brother in trouble.
4-I can't let you in on the details, sorry.
isaac and morgan
are sailing the seas to catch
up with their fortune
6-um just plan "idiots" will suffice
7-i liked hiding like in a hamper or in a small cabinet no one would think a person could fit into
8-opening the car doors for us ladies time and again gets freaking annoying.
10-i have a huge scar across my arm, but no tattoos.

i will now try to draw a scrimshaw.

Oh, I forgot. "Flaming idiot" is actually my favorite. The difference between a flaming idiot and a regular, run of the mill idiot, is that a flaming idiot, should they find themself to be on fire, is too stupid to put it out.

Hi Trillian/RDD & everyone else,

Just wanted to let you know that I'm going away for a week or two and won't have access to the computer. I'm having a few pregnancy complications and in order to get complete rest must go to a friend's house away from my hubby and kids.

So please don't think I'm being rude and ignoring you all, 'cos I'm not and I'll be thinking of you all while I'm gone!
