Sad

Yesterday I got the news that the end of an era is at hand. The particular operation that me and my fellow pirates are currently performing is going to be permanently shut down. I'll probably have a full column on the subject next Tuesday at FTTW.

This means that I will no longer be the kind of pirate I like being and am now, but will go back to being the kind of pirate I was before I became this kind of pirate that I am, now, but can't be, anymore, even though I really, really want to:(

Clear?

that is sad, but it seems from your comment (although i may have been unclear) that you'll at least still be an employed pirate. so that's good...right?

The Pirate said...

Unclear?? Should I translate to Gaelic?? hee-hee, Yes, I'm still employed as a pirate, I just have to go back to the operations I really don't like. This is also the end of an era, of something very special. if you could hear the stories I am listening to as I type this-they are just classic and nothing like this will ever happen, again.

That's too bad. But, at least you still get to be a pirate.

Dude, Pirate, I think you should switch to becoming a pirate of the high seas and seek booty. Screw the powers that be! Get the gold Matey!

...ok, yeah, I suck at writing comments.

Well that sucks hot sweaty balls!

oh, young grasshopper. I have spread the tea leaves on the table. They read; adventure, travel, excitement, worldly wealth, booty, sex, drugs, rock and roll.

oops, mis-read, those last three were historical ones.

and this one says...

Resumé.

take it easy dude. The 3 boys are off to see the remains of nickel creek. I'd bring you along but...

OK, so you're not totally unemployed. WHEW! I understand. I have worked on many a fun project only to turn around and work on one I hate. Groan.
