semiotic_pirate: (SVU flashlight-search)
Methinks I'd be named Kitty McAnthrew with a sidekick named Dagnabbit and an arch-nemesis called Chuckles Misanthrope. I'd always have to follow the money and rescue hapless people ignorant of managing their own finances...

Catch phrase: Dagnabbit! Grab that spreadsheet, set the tiller and hoist yourself over to my desk!

Alternate catch phrase: Would've gotten this thing solved quicker if it hadn't o'been for those stinking kids... Staring at the young goats as they munch on the spreadsheets.

This is an easy one. I cannot remember the name of the book - it was a young adult book I read... as a young adult - anyone want to help me? But in this book there was a cat named John Napkin. He was mischievous. He was black and white. He ate the turkey and caused a ruckus. All in all a great character creature.

What a loaded question that is. Everything in the past always seems like the good ole days and it just isn't so all you Mary Sues and Joe Sixpacks. Are we supposed to refer to Mary Sue's as Mary Sue Sixpack? Sounds good to me.

There will always be varying levels of instability around the globe.

I challenge [livejournal.com profile] crabbyolbastard to answer that question. I challenge you all! *lazy person's way of getting out of answering the question directly*

Yaaar! Spent the whole day rowing in the dory, trying to reach the shore that be Week End. Me first matey CoB and me went plunderin' at the Atlantis Bread when we finally landed. It was a cold breeze that filled the sails of the ship we stole away from the docks with on the far side of the peninsula. The land of Week End shall be pillaged and plundered until sparrow's fart come Mundy or I'll be a keel hauled barnacle.

Kegs of brandy and casks of rum will be breached to celebrate the victory. The morrow brings a wild carousing round of drinking, guzzling and palate pleasing culinary delights... Savvy?

I am the booty.

Something that makes me laugh. Distracting myself away from the source of the angry feelings. Consciously letting go of the anger. In part I think the latter strategy is akin to forgiving the person/event that made me angry.

What about the rest of you?

I would call CoB and tell him I love him. If I had time, I would tell him to tell everyone in our lives that I said goodbye.

Freckle faced, stubborn woman with a penchant for analyzing problems.

Anyone who's gotten to know how I roll would understand that I consider being prepared for a situation to be paramount. I like formulating a plan on which direction I'll be going in, how I have to get where I'm going, and how long it'll take me to get there. I think it gives me an advantage over the metaphorical person who doesn't bother. A competition in a much larger sense as I don't personify the competitor, and it is also much smaller in scope because I am competing against my self's ideal.

Game theory, which I originally learned about in the School of Hard Knocks, and then later learned more formally about in econometrics class, exists everywhere. If you can see the game, you can play the game.

And by the way... Doesn't the word help imply influence from an outside agency? Like a friend who agrees to copilot or navigate during a road trip? I'm not afraid to ask questions - not anymore after the years of good service I've seen the Squeaky Wheel Results time and time again. I know that, rather than thrash around and frustrate myself after a certain point when know-how and intuition haven't cracked a problem, asking for help makes a situation much more amenable to the human spirit. They feel good having helped someone, you feel good because you got the job done.

The "strategies and codes" method is what got me to where I am today, and I like it here.

Hrm... Well, if you consider teleportation to be movement through space, and there is no limit on amount or type of teleports, you could devise a function (similar to calculus measure infinitesimal chunks of something to show a continuous function?) whereby you could appear to the outside observer to fly. If teleporting included phase shifting sub-functions, then you could appear to the outside observer to be invisible.

Given those specifications on the "type" of teleporting, I would definitely choose the teleport powers. This series of suppositions is inspired by my recent re-reading of the character Julie Power a.k.a. Lightspeed from Marvel Comics' Power Pack. In order to initially control her power of "flight" which is later determined to be acceleration and teleportation she had to rethink how she moves in relation to the universe.

I believe that if you check the statistics, I am a "comment-maker" more than a "comment-receiver" because I don't post all that much. Simple...

Yep.

Jeez. I don't think I remember what my first LJ user icon was... Probably an image of a Monty Python Accountancy Pirate from The Crimson Permanent Assurance Company... yeah, it was. Don't have that one currently, will maybe go find it again on google.

I picked my current default user pic because it was the epitome of semiotic_pirate as well as being animated. I like it especially well compared to my other icons because I have special, exclusive permission from the artist who created it to use it here in this journal. Sparkly.

With my new job... I feel especially accountancy piratish:

Accountancy Shanty Lyrics
Artist: Monty Python

LEAD PIRATE:
Full speed ahead, Mr. Cohen!

CHORUS:
Up, up, up your premium. Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:
Scribble away!

CHORUS:
Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:
And balance the books.

CHORUS:
Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:
Scribble away!

CHORUS:
Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:
But manage the books.

CHORUS:
Up, up, up.

PIRATES:
It's fun to charter an accountant
And sail the wide accountancy,
To find, explore the funds offshore
And skirt the shoals of bankruptcy!

It can be manly in insurance.
We'll up your premium semi-annually.
It's all tax deductible.
We're fairly incorruptible,
We're sailing on the wide accountancy!

LEAD PIRATE:
Oh, this is fun, Mr. Cohen!

PIRATE:
Sail away!...
CHORUS:
Up, up, up...

LEAD PIRATE:
Fetch me another exotic salute. To port! Bring her port to shell out! And the medium guys shell out to port! Balance the books! Bring me another small shellfish, Mr. Cohen...

One would think that with a name like [livejournal.com profile] semiotic_pirate I would automatically choose pirate. However, I am more complex... er, perhaps cheesy is the right word I am looking for. The pirate versus ninja dilemma has been around for a long long time (as one measures the nano-second binary existence of the internet). There have been movies made - with killer soundtracks! Hell, even NPR got in on this debate.

I wouldn't pick either or, rather, I would choose to synergize the two into one:

PIRATE-NINJA - SYNERGIZE!


Truly, I am not the first person to think of this combination answer. Hell, some people went so far as to further combine and improve upon the base models by creating the Cyborg-Pirate-Ninja-Jesus. No. I am not kidding.

There are people out there who doubt that this is even possible. And there is a long history of the Great Pirate Ninja Conflict. However, terms were reached to create a Pirate Ninja Alliance that is still holding. Don't you want to believe? Yes, here's the proof... Virginia, there are ninja-pirates, and they are to be feared. Reports state that their only weaknesses are chocolate, and the stare of Christopher Walken.

Maybe it is like that movie where the only way to unite the Vampires and Werewolves is to allow for the creation of the Vampire-Werewolf Hybrid...
