piratical


I'd always suspected that it was only a bit of hair, some eye liner, & maybe a few other details – acting talent, facial structure, about – ahem, well an unspecified number of pounds, & about a zillion dollars – that separated me from Johnny Depp. My triumphant second place costume prize at tonight's Halloween party confirms me in that belief. I'm considering making this my normal conference- and teaching-wear.

Just be careful and don't set the hair on fire ...

It is, by the way, the eyeliner that really makes the outfit work.

If PONG hadn't come in and stolen the show, you would have had my vote!

Costume? What costume? Let the record show, folks, that when Mark and I lived in Virginia, THAT WAS WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE.

If you'd introduced yourself as Captain Sunkenchest, you might have pulled it off.
