Avast me hearties!

I think I'd actually make a really sucky pirate. I talk like a pirate about as well as Will Turner. We really ought to work on that, though, since in some situations it could work as a way to translate Kansai dialect or any other dialect a manga artist might want to throw at us. Or rather, throw at the readers. It would be the publishing companies throwing them specifically at us. And my tendency to want to keep being specific like that may be another reason why I can't talk like a pirate.

I'm amazed Talk Like a Pirate Day actually caught on. It almost makes me want to try starting a holiday.

A few people have mentioned the pirates vs. ninja thing today, in light of everybody talking like pirates. We never really knew where that came from; just somebody told us that was the case one day. But I've never seen any actual ninjas hating pirates or vice versa. Athena came up with an awesome idea to settle the debate once and for all by having some of the cast of Naruto and some of the cast of One Piece fight it out in the ultimate game of Family Feud. That would be awesome.

I know I said I would be back last night to talk about Kingdom Hearts II, but as it turns out we have a Problem. We're addicted to Final Fantasy Tactics. Celeste will come home from doing whatever it is she was doing, and immediately turn the game on, and for some reason we just can't stay in our room and translate or watch anime.

It was especially bad last night when she got home from her boyfriend's place. We were already annoyed because she didn't take a key (she's not paying rent yet, so we don't want to let her just have one of her own), we didn't want to go to bed with the door unlocked, and it was after one o'clock. As it turned out, she'd had a Talk with her boyfriend, and those always take a long time, explaining why she was late, but because she was upset from the talk (she said it ended fine, but it was about stupid stuff and it was annoying, or something), all she wanted to do was stay up all night and play Tactics. We were this close to just going to bed and letting her play on her own, despite being a little sad that we'd probably miss her reaction to Queklain, but it was late and we could deal. But then she said something like, "You know you want to watch..." And since that implied she actually wanted us to watch, we couldn't resist. We are such suckers. And we were up until three.

The only reason we're not watching her play right now is that her boyfriend is here, and he's bored by Tactics. He's the only cure.

And that's all for Kingdom Hearts II this week, and last week. Celeste wants us to make cookies. I'm cool with having cookies, and once they're made, there's no point in not sharing. But I'm not quite sure how I feel about us always making cookies, and Celeste never helping, and Celeste also always having cookies. Oh well.

Today I'm thankful for pirate speak, breaking away from Tactics for a bit, getting to watch Tactics, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Will Turner.
