When Real & Pirate Life Collide

14 posts in this topic

So, I've been writing a website for the last 10 days on brain and spine cancer. Boy, it's scary stuff if you're a hypochondriac.

I know that I need to go pirating when I was writing about Enostosis, which a form of bone island tumor in the spine. And I suddenly think, "Enostoris Buccaneers", the Bone Island crewe in a medical world. And then I start tying "spike" instead of "spine". Egad, I need a break.

Anyone else find their pirate lives crossing over into the real world of work?

Real life? What's that... I'm a full time pirate "crew mother" these days....

Though while I was in school everything related back to piracy (Spanish and Geography in particular... and of course there were elements of World's End in Contemporary novel which went quite well with piracy...)

Not long ago, I changed locations for my place of work--same company, different office. A few weeks after I moved, one of the staff from the old location called. In his very prim, dignified voice, he said that a "Mr. Wobble" had been inquiring after me, and that he would see me in St. Augustine shortly.

I had to explain that this pertained to my "other" life, but it was a rather amusing confluence of vocation and avocation.

There are times at work that I have to keep a check on my alter ego. Sometimes I just want to gut and behead my co-workers. :D

My alter ego wants to take over ...I think I will let her ...I am of no value at my oplace of employment ...my paycheck shows it. *growl, growl, grumbel, grumble.

I say 'Aye' instead of yes in conversation from time to time. It usually invites a snicker.

i say "aye" quite a bit, as well as a few other archaic words....most people notice i think but dont say anything, they all think i have a british accent anyway(idk why).....but pyracy and my job are about one in the same anyway, so it looks better if i bring it to work(tall ship)!

Management at work has this annoying tendency to begin emails with a cold, informal "All" instead of a more friendly greeting. In "retaliation" I like to begin mine with "Ahoy" and end them with "Yrs&c".

I was working on 3-mile lines for awhile... which supposedly have their origins in the range of shore based artillery.

And I did spend the first four months or so of the year working on a paper for a conference that was all about underwater cultural heritage and nautical charting. I tried squeezing as much pirate into that as I could.

Oh, I've lost count how many times I reply "Aye" rather than "yes". Or some other slip of the tongue in all piratey lingo when I'm not even thinking. ALMOST embarassing. Almost. :o

I just get the oddest looks by co-workers and whomever else that just has absolutely no clue.

Life? What normal, regular life? :)
