The Naming of the Ship

Sinister-Boots the Well-Endowed is mightily displeased with ye lot of crew members and blog perusers! Not one scribblin or suggestion did she receive as to the name of our dastardly pirate vessel. Therefore I had to consult with our resident smarty-pants, Stormwatcher, and she, being fancy and foreign, came up with some Frenchy name that I quite like the sound of.

So the name of our good vessel be:

"Poule de la Mer"

Dunno what it means, but frankly it sounds pretty, and mayhap when other pirate vessels intent on attacking see our fancy-pants, confusing name they'll turn tail simply out of confusion.

(Cap'n of the other ship: I say bos'n, what are those strange words written across the back of yonder vessel that we are set to attack?
Bos'n: Dunno sir. Mebbe it's Devils'-talk. Mebbe it's a fairy-ship over there, and if'n we attack we'll get pulled on board and have to wander the seas forever...
Snooty Cap'n: Well for heavens' sake let's turn around and find another ship to attack! This one gives me the shivers. Is it time for tea yet?)

Yar, that cap'n be a sissy! But on to other pirate news. There be two more additions to the crew. Let's all welcome on board Blind Betts, the Terror of the Sea, along with her parrot, Sir Soggypants. Blind Betts be an excellent crafter, and her organized crafting nights will be a breath of fresh air for us pirates who sometimes get tired of board games and show tunes.

Dirty Eliza's job just got harder though, with the addition of Sir Soggypants. Yar, he lives up to his name, that one. Mayhap we're gonna need another deck-swabber.

As fer piraty deeds done over the past week, Sinister-Boots went to another audition that she was ill-prepared for (in her own mind, at least). The song was barely memorized, and I never thought I'd be tryin' out fer that dastardly and disco-era musical "Jesus Christ Superstar," but I thought "why the hell not," so I did it. And mateys, 'twas another fine audition. Haven't heard back from the dastardly directors, but it doesn't matter. I gave 'em my finest, and I can tell ye that I was a lot better than lots of the other sissy women tryin' out fer the same part.

Well I s'pose that be all I've got to report on this rainy day. Stay below-decks and dry, ye lubbers!
