Edited to add: OK, the more I think about this the funnier it gets:

"First Mate Andy! Fetch me me cabin boy, Queeqeeg... er, I mean Quincy! I wants me dinner and I wants it now! Yarrr! The Dread Pirate Wyatt be chasin' me down for callin' 'im a witch, but that hat... I can't 'elp meself! And be on the lookout for Admiral Matt - them shifty Canadians is crafty, they is, and 'e's a man o' principal and looks rather fetchin' in that sexy uniform and captain's hat! Yarrr! I've been missin' me faithful lad Tom, but I'll be takin' out me frustrations on me captive JT, 'o seems to be enjoyin' bein' tied up more than I thought 'e would. Yarrr! Now let's plunder some ships and sink some women! Yo ho ho and a bottle of cum! We're the butt pirates - PREPARE TO BE BOARDED! YARRRRRRRRR!"

OK, I need help. Seriously. I'm worried about me.

A fairly dull week

(Look! A post with actual content!)

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights I spent starting to watch Farscape (I'm on the 5th episode now) interspersed with wasting time on the computer, talking to Quincy, doing laundry, and generally being slothful, yet I still managed to go to bed way too late each and every night. Funny that.

Wednesday night was of course gaming night. We started off with seven of us playing GemQuest, but halfway through we decided it was taking too long and decided to quit (I really like the game myself and wanted to continue, but it does seem to run a little better with less people). By that time two more people had shown up anyway, so we split into two groups. Wyatt got a game of Strange Synergy going, and the rest of us played Ticket to Ride which Corby got Myke for his birthday (in a roundabout way). Very fun game, and definitely want to add that to my ever-growing wish list.

Yesterday everybody was out but me for almost the entire day, so I got in a little late and ended up leaving a little early. Got a lot of work done, though, which is always good. Work in general this week has been busy and productive, punctuated by periods of boredom (hence the several memes, quizzes and silly posts this week).

Tonight it's off to Yudi's for LYC movie night. Tomorrow I'm sure I'll go to tea and coffee, and then may head over to the Hellmouth for Annette & Karen's birthday(s) party. Sunday night I have an invitation to a housewarming, which I may or may not go to. The person hosting has been sort of neglectful towards me lately, and I'm debating if I want to confront that or not.

Next week it's a short week, then off to WDW to meet up with Quincy and Mom. Yay! Very excited. I leave Thursday morning and come back Monday evening.

I also have a wedding to go to on December 4 in Santa Ana between Baron Master Giles Hill of Sweetwater (my friend Paul Giles) and his partner, Giovanni (Joe). I'm excited they're tying the knot (and can't wait to see the Victorian Paul's been working on for eons now), but I'm leery of going alone. Sigh. This would have been such a nice event to go to with Quincy. :( As it is I don't know that I'll actually know anyone other than the groom and groom - in fact, I'm certain I won't. Maybe I'll just go up for the ceremony and duck out from the reception and go to Disneyland instead since it's like the next exit up the 5. :) (Joe, you listening? I should start my Christmas shopping anyway...)

My LJ's titles and such

Saw this meme going around and it amused me... for a time:

  • My journal is called "My Gorgeous Life" because I named it after Dame Edna's autobiography of the same title. Truly that woman has lead a most extraordinary life (but I'll tell you about that later, possums!) and I aspire to be like her.

  • My subtitle is "If you could only read what I don't want you to see" because the bits I don't make public or well-known are, of course, the juiciest ones, and those are the ones you really want to read. Oh yes - you know you do. ;)

  • My friends page is called "The fools! The fools! The mad, impetuous fools!" because that's exactly what the lot of you are. :P

  • My username is Esprix because it's the one I use the most online (e-mail, SDMB, etc.). Originally many years ago I was tired of my AOL screen names, many of which were tied to my locale or age, so I decided to come up with one that was uniquely me and could be used anywhere online for any reason (and wasn't already taken by 5,000 other people). I looked in thesauruses and dictionaries until I found "esprit" meaning "a clever, vivacious wit," which I took to instantly. I toyed around with Max Esprit (as in "maximum") and eventually condensed it to Esprix (which I've since found out means other things as well).

  • My default userpic is GIR because I love the show Invader Zim and GIR cracks me up to no end - he's lovable, quirky, and mostly stupid. "I love this show!"
Thanks for the memeage, scout1222. :)
