Thought of the Day 30 (special edition part 28)

What's that thing they say in Pirates of the Caribbean?

Pirates of the Caribbean, i thought we were talking about Godot.

No, that was yesterday.

I thought that today was part 28 of an ongoing (yet almost finished) month long special Thought of the day - the conversation that usually appears here on this blog only on Sundays.
It is.

Well, if it is, shouldn't the conversation link one day to the next?

It sort of does, sort of. It's just that at the beginning it was written as one dialogue then split up into parts so that we could go on holiday and future schedule the publishing because we were going to be somewhere far away and unable to keep up the unwritten law of 2011 that we have to have a post for EVERY day this year.

That was a long sentence.

It probably needed some punctuation.
So what you are saying is that the conversation is getting a bit jumpy because now we are "live"?

No, what i am saying is what is that thing they say in Pirates of the Caribbean?

You could have answered - "yes, and it's good that it's jumpy because there is a parallel between what we write and the images and the journey that was undertaken, we have jumped from car to boat to car and boat again and now we are almost at the destination - just one more thirty minute boat ride left and then it's by foot"

I could have, but i said "what is that thing they say in Pirates of teh Caribbean." three times!

Do you mean the bit where Captain hector Barbossa says "Too long I've been starvin' to death and haven't died! I feel nothing! Not the wind on my face, nor the spray of the sea... nor the warmth of a woman's flesh."
I wasn't thinking of that one but i like it!

It's apt.

It is!

So which bit were you thinking of then?

If i knew the answer to that i wouldn't have asked you would i?

Hang on, let me go through the DVD.....ah.....he he.... here it is.


Now, bring me that horizon...[hums "A Pirate's Life for Me"]...and really bad eggs...drink up, me hearties, yo ho!

(continued tomorrow)
