Ship Ohoy!


Today I am going to make seaman stew. That’s right; I’m doing the cooking thing again. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but at least my belly is nice and full.

I don’t know exactly what a seaman stew is, but I’m guessing that it might be something that you make either out of seamen or while acting like a seaman. One quick glance down at the pier on my way to get the groceries, pretty much ruled out that first option.

So I’ve made plans to eat my stew while pretending to be a pirate. I’ll sit in my chair with my steaming bowl saying things like “Arrrrrr” and “the decks need swabbering, matey”. And my parrot (of course, I don’t have a parrot, so the dog will have to do) will agree with me and say things like “Captain Choochoo is a mean, ol’ pirate” (but since it’s actually the dog, and not a parrot, it’ll probably come out as more of an “arf wuff arfarf”).

And afterwards I’ll walk the plank, just for added effect. Right out of the livingroom window.

You've finally done it, you've gone totally insane. And where did you get that picture of the gay sailors?

Toasty - you can have some, if you like:)

Jazz - that's not a recent development, and you ought to know that. It's from wikipedia.

Mist1 - I knew someone would draw that kinda connection, but I thought it would be Steve:P
