The Gold Pirate Earring


Okay, so it doesn't make me look like you might find me out on the high seas, brandishing a cutlass while swinging from the yardarm; but I'm a more subtle kind of guy than that.

  1. I don't know. The twinkle in the eye kind of takes away from the whole "Arrrggh, I'm a pirate" vibe. :-)

  2. I know. Sadly (or maybe not), my acting days are behind me now.

  4. Real pirates would not have such subtlety, but when you first said you wanted a pirate earring, I was thinking of the large gold hoop type, of a costume variety, such as the kind that Ignatius Reilly wore while selling hot dogs in the Quarter. This nice small earring is much more suited for everyday wear. And you do look really good in the new picture! thanks, sp

  5. Lol, I think everybody expected a large hoop, but I could never pull that off. I would have felt like an over-aged Bourbon Street stripper. And, besides, I'm nowhere near as larger than life as Ignatius Reilly. Those kind of people make me nervous. They're capable of bodily harm. As for me looking good in the pictures, I have one word for you: airbrush! I'm getting pretty handy with that little photo tool.

  6. I LOVE it! But I wouldn't describe it as Pirate look, no. I would say more like Puck, with the twinkle in your eyes and the impish smirk.

  8. Should I add "sly" to "subtle?" What a flattering comparison. He's one of my favorites. I named my Pomeranian Puck, and he lived up to the name.

  9. My favorite character, too! One of my favorite words, as well, "puckish".
    I blame the Ashland, Oregon Shakespeare festival for the love of all things, Puck.
    I would add the words "sly" & "stylish"!
