Taking on the unexpected.... and surviving!

While on one of my rare outdoor excursions yesterday, I unexpectedly experienced a bit of a winkout. I was at a Barnes & Noble bookstore, as I needed to do a little bit of catching up, as there were items I had not yet properly taken a look at. One of these was the new coffee-table chronicle celebrating Sesame Street's 40th Anniversary. Well, I was right in the middle of reading a particular chapter when I unexpectedly and unintentionally blacked out!

You Mortals have no idea what it's like experiencing a physical blackout as I did! It's shocking, dangerous and, frankly, frightening to say the least! I'll spare you the horrible details; suffice it to say, I ended up recuperating for about an hour in a nearby Starbucks before I considered myself capable of moving on again. I then spent the rest of the afternoon at Borders in Time Warner Center, before returning home.

Captain MacLeod at No Quarter Given Magazine is a bit concerned about the status of Pirates Magazine, as am I. Cap'n Slappy, co-founder of Talk Like a Pirate Day, writes a "Pirattitude" column for that publication, and naturally, his most recent such column was an interview with dear Master Richard. MacLeod and Richard are both asking: "When's the next issue of Pirates Magazine gonna come out?" Methinks I shall have to e-mail Cap'n Slappy and find out for meself what's going on.
