Pirates of the Caribbean
The Pirates of the Caribbean: A swashbuckling
adventure! Yo ho, a pirates life is indeed for
you, seeing as you are the classic Disney dark
ride that presents a time when New Orleans was
under attack from a band of treasure loving
bandits. You have a bit of an edge, and an
element of danger, and you can scare the
youngins, but for the most part you mean no
serious harm. You are youthful at heart,
strong and energetic, with a taste for the good
life, if not hard work. You have romantic
notions about the adventurous life on the sea
with no rules and no responsibilities except to
your ship, but you also weary and worrisome of
the fate that eventually gets all those who
those who live life on the lamb, stealing gold
for greed and burning down cities for your own
delight. You are what you are, and you're out
to enjoy the glamour of your wild days while
they last! Despite your rough surface, the
people know you have heart and they will always
come back.

What Disneyland attraction are you?

How about a couple more books:

I finished another graphic novel at the suggestion of an acquaintance. It's written by Warren Ellis, called The Authority: Relentless, Book One of the series. It's a superhero comic, done an unusual way, with superheros apparently working more or less with the UN; it didn't gel with me. I'm not planning on pursuing it any farther.

I also finished a book by Elizabeth Moon, whose works I often enjoy. This is a sequel to Trading in Danger, a pretty cool space opera, space trader novel, called Marque and Reprisal, once again a good page-turner in the space genre.

The cookie exchange went off without a hitch. We had fun having folks over, but forestcats was exhausted. She's rallying now, hooray for our side. It's a blast watching everyone having a good time, and we all had a good laugh about the stories people told about their particular cookies....

On the DVD front, we finished watching the PBS piece on In Search of Ancient Ireland which was pretty interesting. I've been pleased with the material in these documentaries so far.

Have picked up some things I want to see, but haven't had any time. RotK extended, as well as Northern Exposure second season...

Killer week; hope I survive until Saturday evening; we hope to visit with Suki on the West Side once I get away from the office.
