I’m not traveling at the moment, but I am waiting for other people’s flights to come in. As always, it’s a mix of boredom and anticipation. But at least there’s no red giants trying to grab airplanes at the moment. As far as I know.
I hope no one reading this ever gets in a car crash. Cars are among scariest things I’ve ever seen, and I’ve flown on airplanes through storms.
But hey, at least I don’t have to worry about being hit by toy cars. A stick person’s not gonna do much damage even going fast if they ram me, so…huzzah for that?
Ever played those games in the water where you balance on someone else’s shoulders and try to knock everyone into the water? I miss that. You can’t play those games by yourself, and especially if you don’t have an ocean, or at least a pool nearby.
Anyways, Knight’s strong. She can easily lift Pirate and as many stick people as she needs. Doesn’t mean she’s going to be happy about it, though.
I wonder about falling when I’m on a plane. It seems to me a stick-person wouldn’t fear falling at all, mainly because they’re far lighter. They could literally fall hundreds of feet without a care in the world. I really envy that ability. I’d splat like a ripe tomato.
And now more mythological mishaps with our favorite characters. I feel like our poor stick-knight has to deal with way too much. But look on the bright side…at least she’s not the damsel in distress?
I actually don’t like turtles in reality that much. But if I could ride a giant turtle, I probably would. It might not get me there very fast, but I’d enjoy the peace and quiet.
Is…is this what rich people do? I mean, I’ve heard about carpooling although I haven’t ever done it myself, but what about helipooling? Yachtpooling? Jetpooling? Some people have private jets — I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t give friends a lift. You may think this is a stupid idea, but I totally bet it happens.
I’m combining a lot of topics today. To summarize: it’s my birthday, but also closing in on the 900th post for Pirate blog. That means 900 days of Pirate has already come and gone.That seems unreal to me, but I’m proud that I can back up memory with a picture of Pirate for every day I’ve lived.
Thank you all who read the blog for sticking with me — some of you right from the start, others only a few weeks ago. It’s sometimes tiring, sometimes demanding, sometimes exhausting to draw a picture a day and (try) to make it funny, but I hope I’ve been somewhat entertaining.
I was thinking about stopping Pirate Blog once I hit 1000 posts, or at least severely scaling down the frequency of my updates. It’s great to be able to say I did something concrete every day, but it’s also hard, sometimes stressful…but rewarding. I’m still not sure, but knowing some people read it helps a lot.
…You are out there, aren’t you? I know some of you by the likes you put on posts every day — thank you, and some because you’re family or friends. I do want this to be a fun little picture you can start (or end) you day with, and I want to share it with as many people as possible.
If I could have one wish, I guess I need to spend it on world peace, or at least a world not ruled by idiots. But if I get a second wish, I hope you’ll mention Pirate Blog to someone. Only if you think they’d be interested, and only if you feel like it, but it would make my day.
Four paragraphs is enough. I’m done talking, but hope you’re all having a great day, and here’s a wallpaper of Pirate doing what I feel like doing all the time: going on an adventure.
PS: I just realized this, but to actually see a lot of the images full-size or to download them, you do need to go to Gallery to find the images and click on the full-size option. This one’s in the Special category.
Toll booths are the only reason why I keep my change. That, and to buy overpriced soda when I’m on the road. Anyways, Pirate could probably extort a few quarters from stick-people going to work.
I’m also taking one of the great Jane Austen’s quotes and misusing it. I feel bad about that.
Snow driving is hard. I saw an accident on the highway today — you really forget how fragile cars are until you see them break. Fun fact: apparently cars today are built to easily collapse to protect the passenger. Cars back in the day were tanks. Sort of like Knight.
