    Okay, we were talking about creating some group swag. How about someone create a Hunt for Read October graphic, with a red CABI in place of the submarine. Underneath the logo can be our motto: "Conn, sonar! Crazy Ivan! "

    having been a submarine officer, and having given orderes to sonar from the conn, I would like to be involved in the creation of this. Funny story, when onboard a submarine going out to sea, you are allowed to bring along an "underway cap" to wear in place of the uniform ship's ball cap. Some people brought a cap of their favorite ball club, I brought a Colonial Williamsburg Tri-corner hat. And once underway I learned that the Executive Officer really gets upset if you give orders from the Conn in a pirate voice whilst wearing a 'pirate hat'. "Helm, Sonar, Dive, Ti's be Leftenanant Essig -- the Deck and the Conn be Mine!". "Conn, Xo fix yourself!"

    It depends on how short it is.

    Do Kilts or sarongs count?

    That rules.

    I'll remind everyone that talk like a pirate day (Sept 19) is only a few short weeks away. Every year I come thisss close to getting divorced... maybe training our toddler to stomp around and fret about his wenches and dressing the baby up like a parrot was a step too far...

    No way I could get away with that. My wife wont even put up with my random Conan the Barbarian quotes said in Arnold's voice.

    Man, if I had a baby I'd TOTALLY dress it up as a parrot for TLAPD! Then I'd stick it in a pannier and take it on the Metro.

    Now where can I get a spare baby?

    So the other day I thought I'd run out at lunchtime and ride to the bank, only I didn't want to bother changing into the full-on bike kit.

    I was pretty sure I could ride in the skirt I had on, so it didn't seem like a problem. It didn't occur to me that I can't get ON my bike in a skirt...
