Because they ARRR!


I'm off to ride a riverboat down the Thames in honour of helpful_mammal's birthday. Dressed as a pirate.

Today is going to be awesome.

I got more attention in one day than I normally get in a year! (Also, I wore sensible flat-soled boots for the boat.)

Indeed, I suspect the Jolly Roger was not the only thing hoisted yesterday.

If you don't win the prize for Sexiest Pirate Aboard, I expect you to sue on the grounds that the judges are clearly blind.

That, or take pictures. Have fun!

I don't know, there were a lot of Sexy Pirate. I think I might have won for Best Hat, though.

There are many pictures. I have to collect them from Facebook. I opted to bring the Holga so it will be a week or so before I can go through my own!

That wig is the bomb! Have I mentioned that you're a hot mamma?

That's not a wig, that's my hair! That's what it does when I wash it, towel-dry it and then don't comb it.

Ah! Is that a hat that you're wearing too? I thought it was a wig cause it was really tall!

Yes, that's a hat. It's quite enormous.

That's true, but when you get Tower Bridge in London to open for you - twice - it does give you certain thrill of power.

Did you kidnap any damsels? Can't wait to see your holga stuff.

All the damsels we came across joined us quite willingly. Hm!

Got a call from the processors who said the slides developed are very dark so I'm a bit worried I may not have gotten much worth sharing. :-(

you shoot slide film?! I shoot negative film for the holga (and even cross process slide film to negative) and have the negatives scanned to disc.

I do hope you have something worth sharing
