i woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. it's stupid, really, the things i was crabby about this morning. not feeling like going to work, not having enough clean clothes (entirely my fault), not wanting to wear the clothes hanging in my closet that are clean, missing my nephews, wishing the apartment were cleaner, wishing there were more hours in the day . . .

fortunately for me, today is international talk like a pirate day. so all i have to do is end each crabby sentence with a good "yargh!" or "gar!" and people will just think i'm just playing the part, right? of course, i'll probably have to explain that it's talk like a pirate day, which will just make me more crabby.

*sigh* it's not easy being a pirate.

My pirate name is:

Dirty Anne Cash

You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. You're musical, and you've got a certain style if not flair. You'll do just fine. Arr!

this is red anne kidd, here (funny that we share the name anne). i had never noticed your smell before, but if that's the only reason we want to throw you into the ocean, that's not so bad!

here's what other pirates say about me:

passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. arr!

You are so funny!!
I love reading your blog and hearing about the exciting things you and David are doing to make your apt a home. It seems like just yesterday you and Laurie and I were at in Wisconsin, passing the nights drinking wine, eating puppy chow, flipping through magazines...and talking about the future. And now you are living it!
I hope to see you again soon!Nancy

"i woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning."

-- understatement. I found myself on the floor. ;)

--however, there must be some sort of proverbial truth to it, since I was crabby that day too... maybe it was just the waking up on the floor...
