Prep for crossing of the line!

August 27th, 2007 (03:25 am)

current mood: accomplished


Just participated in a Wog day and survived! Wog is what they call people who've not crossed the line before and done the ceremony. Davy Jones came aboard late last night and witnessed our talent show where we were promptly boo'ed off by the honorable shellbacks, probably because it was raining and our skit took time to do ;). This morning we were woke up promptly at 0500 to begin washing off the slimy wogness, after properly demonstrating our compliance we came first to the mess decks to perform before the honorable shellbacks. Much singing of Anchors away, row, row, row your boat, and many other notable tunes were heard.

Next on to the amidships to eat a hearty breakfast to prepare for the festivities of the day, I'll not go into detail on that. King Neptune himself made his presence known and the captain laid down his plea for some of the wogs, denied leniency the captain turned over command to the mighty King. Next came much washing of the wogs, obstacle courses, bobbing for apples, hot dog races, and jeering from the honorable shellbacks leading up to the Kings court. After properly demonstrating our worthiness to shed our land lubber ways and become shellbacks a "feast" was head and we claimed our due!

Sounds like brainwashing doesn't it ;)? My finger and tongue are still blue from the "feast" of a blueberry from one of the pies. Part of the festivities included making a shirt to properly identify ourselves.
Pictures to come!

Pictures not only from this but my other port visits. I have to wait until we pull into Pearl though so I can use photobucket since I'm too lazy to go to another image hosting site.

*Greetings and a hug from Singapore!*

Lord Kamina

Where's this King, he's no match for the Great Gurren Brigade, and the Great Lord Kaminia Himself!

It isn't the king you fear...

Smart people fear the hoards that they command!
