Geeking Out – Pirates

Dear Kristen,

I totally remember your Powerpuff Girl phase.  It was awesome!

And hilarious…

But probably no more hilariously weird as my next one:


Walk the plank! Aarrgh!

Why is it weird?  Do you know anything about real pirates?  They were AWFUL. Morbidly awful.  Horribly evil in many cases and yet, you make a Disney ride about them and I am ALL IN.  This is probably all connected to my obsession with historical figures and events and the idea that humanity can be both messed up and wonderfully beautiful all at once.  I’m not sure pirates fit that description unless they are make-believe.

Thank you, Disney, for making that a reality!

Did I have Pirates of the Caribbean merchandise before there was a movie?  Yes, yes, I did.  Is that the first ride we go to when we visit the Magic Kingdom. Of course.  And did I go  really a little crazy when Johnny Depp came into the picture?



Please and thank you.

But really, what’s not to love?  You get to sail the ocean wide, visit beautiful islands, fight with swords, and be overall extremely clever.  It’s perfect.

So, Munchkin was a pirate one Halloween, Little Man will probably get a pirate ship for his birthday, and who knows, maybe one day they’ll learn to talk pirate.  Saavy?

Yes.  There is nothing wrong with me.  Skulls, death, pillaging and plundering….Yeah, really nothing wrong with me at all….
