Aaaaaaaaah I missed it! I actually put a reminder into my phone calendar last year just in case, but then I lost that phone. Sad

I think I would actually pay money for an app that woke me on TLAPD with a reading of that poem. Who should we hire to read it? Normally I would go straight to James Earl Jones, but let's at least consider some other possibilities.

In my mind, it was Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow.
Alternatively, Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa.

But my mind may be broken a bit, so, take it with a grain of salt and all that.

Krispy Kreme still be alive? There ain't been a Krispy Kreme in my town in a few year. I thought the ol' company had sunk like a fish. I had wondered on the mystery o' what could a killed a company what made such mighty doughnauts.

Two years ago, in a town a few towns over from where I live, they built a Krispy Kreme. I thought that to be odd. As around my neck of the woods, Dunkin Donuts, kills Krispy Kreme. I don't even know of any other one around.

I can also say, I've never actually been to a Krispy Kreme, and eaten from that store. However I believe Krispy Kreme supplies a few places with doughnuts, like WaWa and Acme. So I have eaten those second hand, store bought, Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

But it seemed to have hung on, much like Popeye's Chicken, and Little Caesars Pizzeria did, and is now making a comebacks.

Arrrrr, Matey! Shiver me timbers! Avast, thee, and your sugar free diet...


Good for you, though..

(I do wonder, if pirates have ever actually talked like that. Or if it's just one terrible stereotype.)

Me young matey, ye olde pirate talk stereotype be derived from the West Country Dialect o' Mother England, from whence many a pirate hath hailed. It also be the home of the feller who played ol' Long John Silver, and the tall, willowy feller who played Darth Vader but didn't do the voice.

Me parrot told me that. She must like me more 'n' she likes Shadowstorm.
