Thursday, September 18, 2003 Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Brick Just seen Pirates of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp doing a Rory Bremner of Keef Richards in a bandana. So happy to learn that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so I shall be heading into the office swirling me sabre in me velvet pantaloons and checking out the exchange rate for doubloons before running the boss through just cos I can.
Belleville Rendezvous Quiet night so went the pics. Missed Terminator XXVII, half an hout to wait to see Julie Walters in the nud, so paid my £8.50 to see A CARTOON? Go see.

Miscommunication Standing in the ticket queue at Oval station in rush hour. The girl in front of me utterly failing to get her point over to the bloke behind the grille despite the loop microphone. They have no idea what the other one is saying and the volume keeps on rising. Two wrong tickets, a fair bit of mutual verbal abuse later, she gets her single to Turners Green and stalks off, eyes rolling in frustration. Me next. Walk up to the ticket window, and blokey is shaking his head in disbelief.
