Of pirates and crabs

Ahoy, Legion of Fans (LOF), my fellow blogger, brilliant writer and online buddy the Crabmommy kindly invited me to do a guest spot on her blog and canvas the issue of what it is that society finds so endearing about people in puffy shirts who rob, kill, pillage, maim and have parrot pooh on their shoulders. I speak, of course, about pirates.

One of the crabster's commentators raised this subject, about kids loving pirates, so Crabmommy and I naturally saw this as perfect opportunity for me to shamelessly promote my upcoming tale of buccaneers, IVORY.

Crabmommy's blog is very funny and is read by squillions of people around the world, including Gwyneth Paltrow. Feel free to go have your two pieces-of-eight's worth on my post, here, but make sure you also browse through the Crabmommy's musings if you haven't already.

Elsewhere, my other very good internet and real-life friend Muriel calls me a slut in one of her recent blog posts, here. And I thank her for it.

Tony, read Crabmommy and Salma Gundi- you media slut!Had a good belly laugh. There is something very successful about Pirates surely Hollywood would make this into a movie? Look forward to reading it.

Oops... that was me, in drag, before, posting as Alex the Pirate Wench. Although we're really seen in the same room together at the same time, she is a she, and she is a real person (though I control her email account, just as I control her livelihood).
