Dance and watch the dying sunlight fade.

Hullo, what’s this?  A new exciting installment of Things What I Dreamt Up While Sleeping?  What an age to be sitting around on the internet on Tumblr.

"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
Sculpture by Erik Christianson.

I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.

How dare women try to have nipples.

Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.

ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.

Well my faithful followers, good and bad news.  On the positive side, and I can’t remember if I’ve stated this before (because it is such exciting news, can you not feel the excitement oozing from the screen?) but I have acquired a new bookcase for my room that should hopefully put an end to the ever growing pile of case less books.  
The bad side of this news is two fold, however.  Unfortunately, for me, it is a flat pack type of assembly, and my handy skills aren’t quite on par with the monkeys from 2001 A Space Odyssey let alone the brains behind Ikea. Case (ha!) in point, my last bookcase that I assembled has needed to be propped up against my bed as it took on quite an unattractive lilt.  I guess maybe I am actually on par with the builders of the Eiffel Tower.  In a hundred or so years I shall likely be looked on as a genius, my life likened to that of Da Vinci or that chap what sculpted the marble lady sans arms, although I fear that life may be cut short rather suddenly by the collapse of said bookcase.
Anyway, I think I’ve rambled off track, where was I?  Oh, yes.  The second side of this sad news is that I have still not been able to wrap my head around the rearrangement of my room so that this new addition may be included.  I fear, failing a major failing of physics, I may just have to, as the birds say, Wing It.
