By the blood of Henry Morgan,
I be at water edge in Vinoy Park at thar port of Saint Petersburg, vending at the 5th Annual Florida Pirate Festival. The 3 day event be a bit light in attendance but heavy in performance. They had a wonderful staff of krew members n' a grand fight circle that put on well choreographed melee of up to 30 fighters.
I held one of me model search for the 2009 Hot Pirate Babe calendar. Sink n' scuttle me, if I didn't get a fine selection of wenches to pick from.
By the blood of Henry Morgan,
Damn me eyes,
This be the third week in me voyage to Florida, which be one of much bad omens. As I tried to attend thar Pirate Week in the Caymen Islands, but they didn't accept me, then I hooked up with the Saint Arrrgustine Pirate Gathering, but they cancelled 3 days before I left fer my voyage. So at last minute I applied to thar Sarasota Medieval Fair n' be accepted.
To my surprise I discovered it be a dry event - no rum or ale. Attendance be low n' sale be even lower, no plunder here. But I did get one beatiful assisant, Nikki, to pass the day by floggin' her n' teachin' her to sword fight, arrrr!
Happy All Hallow's Day,
Silver me timbers, the Divers Equipment Manufactors Association hired me to dress 200 of thar folk as pirates n' take photo of them fer there DEMA Awards Show caues thar them be Pirates this year. They gave me a booth at thar trade show, where I got a few scuba diver shops to carry the Molly Roger product line.
It seems like them diver like pirates, as they be still searchin' fer our long lost treasure. Thar treasure I found be the many lovely mermaids lounging around the show.
Eye Poppin Treasured Chest,
This be me kick off event fer my one month voyage to Florida, where real pirates sailed thar oceans. Fantasy Fest be a 10 day event of debauchery held on Key West, an island that be closer to Cuba than Miami.
I arrive on Thursday n' visited the Pirate Soul Museum n' saw many a real pirate artifacts. I set up me booth at the Fantasy Fest Street Fair on Friday n' sold many a Molly Roger shirts. Then I be a special judge at the Rum Barrel Pirate Bash - Costume Contest, where I be holding a Hot Pirate Babe search.
The highlight of this week long is the body paint of women. Hundreds of women proudly display their uncovered treasure chest in public, what a sight to see for all ye salty sea dogs. Captain Morgan puts on a huge parade of floats. I started out takin' photo from the side, but it boring, so I crashed the parade n' joined one of the many pirate groups in the parade. I didn't have any beads to give out, so I took photos of painted women n' gave them a flogging instead, yarrr!
In the desert of Las Vegas, I seek fortune at the Age of Chivalry, one massive Renaissance faire of 50,000 folk in one weekend. This be one interesting fantasy faire with The Wild, Vikings, Belly Dancers, Gladiators, Scottish, Fairies, Queen & her court n' Pirates, arrrr!
I be one tired pyrate, doing a Moroccan Party, driving all night to do a 3 day faire which starts 10 in the morning n' last till 10 at night. This be me most profitable 3 day weekend fer my Dress Like a Pirate Photo Booth, but the dust did me in with a horrible cough. As alway I keep a weather eye fer Hot Pirate Babes.
