Yes, I believe that the good Captain Brand may have stepped off the deep end of the quay. I guess you just have to watch those creative types.

I just got off the phone with Siren, Captain of the Poseidon.

We talked about the cold weather, a common theme in many of these three minute conversations. Siren said she wants to go to the Caribbean, but knowing her luck it would rain. She told me about her daughter coating the dog, A Mexican hairless breed, with Desitin Diaper creme. We went over the three minutes by a whole 50 seconds, but to be fair, we were discussing the Watch Dog as well, and we had a lot to say very fast.

Meanwhile, Liam spread wet wipes all over my office.

Captain Siren of the Poseidon. Check.

Harry.

Silkie

Dorian Lasseter

Just got off the phone with Patrick Hand.

Talked about sewing, garb, PiP, messy offices, productivity, RPG's, the Pub and how great it was that William started this because we hadn't chatted since PiP.

Ya know William, when I started reading this thread it occurred to me that you were the only one here with my phone number and that I should expect a call. Cell phone was turned off - sorry!

Then Red-Handed jill called me back. I was on the phone only 30 seconds with her and Silkie called. Then my wife called. We had a conference call with four pirates in three different time zones. East Coast, Rockies, West Coast.

We talked about everything.

Let's see... sailing, parades, Joe-Joe's cookies, Altoids, Altoids sours, old jobs, burning out on old jobs, wacky working hours, bank hours, weapons classes, pirate groups, names, getting sick over the holidays, the very energetic Liam - did I miss anything?

Yes, the thread isn't designed to annoy anyone. Please avoid calling after or before a reasonable hour.

Jim Hawkins. Check.

We went from chat to phone and back again. Ain't technology grand?

We talked about the recent dinner he attended near the University of Maryland at the 1700s tavern there. Jim is dogsitting a "squeaky" dog. We also spoke about Baconfest and this crazy Phone-a-Pirate thing.

The list grows.

If no one has your name or phone number then you don't have to join in. This is meant to become better aquainted with the friends you have made here. If you don't want to join in then by all means, don't.

Lady Seahawke,

I honestly wish that I could say that it was just a coincidence that someone left you that message, but it might not be. In fact, it might very well be the reason he called you. I don't know. There are jerks in this world sophomoric enough to take something as simple and harmless as an idea and turn it into something ugly. There is no excuse for the person who called and left you that message. I would like to hope it wasn't because of this thread, but to be perfectly honest, I could never be sure.

My apologies if I inadvertently gave someone the idea that they should be so rude to you.

The thread was meant to convey an attitude of harmless fun. I had very simple and delightful conversations myself with everyone I spoke to. The conference call with Maeve, Silkie and Red-Handed Jill was a great deal of fun. I am enjoying the spontaneous introduction to so many of my pirate associates.

Also, the thread is not meant to be mutually exclusive. I understand that their may be hearing impaired pirates on the Pub. There may be people who don't want to be called.

If any of you wish to continue meeting your fellow pirates by phoning them to say hello, then please use utmost care and courtesy when calling. Thank you.

BlackJohn didn't answer his phone when I called... Well, he did say he doesn't answer it often...

And Jim Hawkins.... strike two for me on this day...

AH ha...

Mister Hawkins was easier to reach at home....

Found out his work number, I had the wrong extension!

A nice chat about his coworker (BlackJohn is a morning person!), reenacting different time periods, Dog sitting, and more....

Well worth the (Ooops!) 8 minutes on the phone.
