Title: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Taffy Saltwater on May 14, 2008, 01:59:24 PM
By Decree of Good Queen Bonnie of the Kingdom of Glen Livet, the Royal Order of Landsharks is now open for membership.  We are privateers who have looked at 40, are happiest at sea and dangerous on land, and who call Sir Jimmy of Buffett our most well-beloved minstrel.  Younglings will known as "Guppies" until such a time as they reach majority - at 40, of course.

Please PM me with your persona name and e-mail address if you are interested in joining the ranks of the Royal Order of Landsharks.  If you will send your name & snail mail address at the same time, I will be working on a badge in the near future.  I will be following up next week & beg your indulgence.

Should a special award, or perhaps requirement be, that for the lyrics of our beloved minstrel: "I have been drunk now for over two weeks" you cane honestly reply ...."been there, done that!"  ?

....Not that I should encourage such reckless behavior (again)......

Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum,
and we wound up drinkin' all night.

Like I explain'd to you once before I ain't no drinkin' man
But temptation got the best of me
And I took a slash
That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat
like honey dew vine water

And I took another slash,
Took another'n an another'n an another'n
For you knew I'd downed one whole jug of that shiner bock
and commenced to gettin' hot flashes

Whooo Hooo!!!!! from Landshark 22!!

Post by: Captain Jack Wolfe on May 16, 2008, 06:59:14 PM
White chocolate macadamia nut cookies, no doubt.   :D

Bimbo limbo is where I been.
I know you know it's been wearin' me thin.
Times are changing, and I think it's time.
I'm rearranging all the guilt in my mind.

Chorus:
I'm looking for a smart woman in a real short skirt,
A smart woman who knows how to flirt,
A smart woman, got a mind of her own,
A smart woman who'll take me home,
Take me home.

I'm not your macho kind of guy,
But I can be so when I'm feeling shy.
Hey, baby, where'd you get your good looks?
Ooh, babe, I want to carry your books.

(CHORUS)

Beauty and brains (beauty and brains),
The best of both worlds (best of both worlds)
I think I could change (think I could change)
If you'd be my, be my, be my girl.

(CHORUS twice)

Lakes below the mountains
Flow into the sea
Like oils applied to canvas
They permeate through me

And there's that one particular harbour
Sheltered from the wind
Where the children play on the shore each day
And all are safe within

Most mysterious calling harbour
So far but yet so near
I can see the day when my hair's full gray
And I finally disappear

So, I went to get my mail last night and as I placed my hand in the box I felt a strange package. Thinking to myself, "I did not order anything and no one told me to expect anything" I pulled out this manila envelope with a lumpy object in it. I examined the senders name and address in the yellow glow of the street light above and came to the conclusion that I did not know who this was from. Opening the package I reached inside to find that it was a little piece of abalone (sp?) shell on a pin. It was my ROoL PIN!

I was so excited that I put it on right there and wore it the rest of the night.

Ahaha It is wonderful and I feel so special. I will be wearing it every day I am at fair. I need to get myself a swag rag, I am getting quite a few pins now.

Mine came in yesterday's mail.  I had to explain to the wife what ROoL stood for and then explain why some strange person is sending me a package.  LOL.  Anyway, I am almost thinking it is to beautiful a piece to wear at faire for fear of losing it.
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Taffy Saltwater on June 18, 2008, 08:15:53 AM
I'm glad the phins are landing in your mailboxes.  The pinbacks came as two-piece kits, but I think the butterfly clip may be wonky.  If you have an extra clip that seems secure, please replace the one that came w/yours.

The phins are fin shaped (for Landsharks), abalone colored (for the sea - pirates y'know), and guitar picks (for Jimmy).  Peace & Fins UP!

'twas somewhat along the lines of a Corona, but because it had the name "Landshark" on it, actually tasted GOOD. :)

As far as an old broad can blush, I'm blushin'!  My compliments back atcha, Dragon - it's always good to meet a fellow R/F'er & Landshark. I'm hoping to see lots more of everyone at TRF (c'mon, Fall!)

Thanks to Lavender for posting the original Mission Statement and to everyone for making us what we are - should we be hiding from the Law?

I'll try to get caught up on the new members' Phins this week.  If they don't go out this week, it probably won't be until sometime in August as I am in the middle of moving - headdesk.

Thanks & Fins UP!

I've been wondering, how many of this great group of land sharks have actually been out to sea. No specific reason, I was just wondering. Myself, I've been out to sea in the Navy. Several times in what one would call heavy seas of 4 feet. The most interesting where Hurricane Helene, which was a level 4, fun ride. Then Hurricane Hugo category 5.  Mr Toad's wild ride had nothing on that one.

The Navy for me too. First time out was in a cat 5 storm. The Frigate I was on was rolling so far that if you were on the bridge wing, you could scoop water with your hands. Beats the heck out of any roller coaster I've been on!

The Letter will be added to phins of new members and current members can PM me your e-mail addy to send a copy to print OR PM me for my address to send me a Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope OR let me know what days you'll be at TRF so I can personally give you a Letter if I'm there at the same time.

Hopefully a better day soon.

Post by: KeeperoftheBar on October 13, 2008, 10:50:00 AM
Thank you Taffy.  Yes I would like to be a Landshark.  I certainly meet the age requirement and love Jimmy B. 
I fear that was not my goode wife but rather a dear cousin.  And I am a bit angered at StudMuffin.  For the first time in years he threw me from the saddle.  Thankfully a few strong gentlemen caught him and assisted me in remounting.  I don't think it was the ale that caused the misdeed (I only had a half dozen or so) but rather the uneven ground spooked him.  I may have to ask Queen Bonnie to enchant him for me.

I am working on spells and potions!

...I attended first weekend & blew out a knee so I haven't been there the last two weekends...

Hope the knee is feeling better.  We may try to make Roman weekend if the weather doesn't turn too cold for us.  Hope to see you again.

Fins up!

#87 checking in, and giving a big Phins Up!!! to all fellow Landsharks! I know you all enjoyed Faire, and I am planning on making it to TRF at some point next season, and hopefully I will see many of you at Scarby before then!

Mistress Taffy, since I was unable to make it down to your neck of the harbor this season I guess I'll just have to settle for being Phinned by the mailman after all  :-\ , and I'm looking forward to receiving my Letter of Marque from Our Lady Queen, as well!!!

Phins UP!!!

Rami (& other as yet phinned LS's), your Letter of Marque will be issued by me, as authorized by our Goode Queene Bonnie, and will be sent together w/your phin.  I'm working on them, & if I can get over this gee-golly intestinal upset, I'll try to get at least a few out this weekend.

A Very Helpful Hint (as the pin backs tend to slip off) that was given to me is to take a toenail clipper & holding it against the groove on the pin, run the clipper around the groove to give the pin a little more hold.

I'm so glad the packages are starting to come in & Phins UP!

Indeed, that's what I came up with as a good fix. Just be very careful not to cut through the pin all the way!! Be gentle, and you'll be fine. All it needs is a slightly deeper groove to bite down on.

I think the by laws state that Landsharks must share the booty if there are other Landsharks present... Giving first pick to Bonnie, QOE and Captain Taffy, of course, but not hoarding, of course!!!

So I guess we'd better let him answer the charge... before we charge... eh???

Oh MacLaren... we have something to ask you.... !

Sorry, MacLaren, for getting you hopes up like that! I've already promised my first kilt check to someone, though, and even a virtual check is more than I can manage under those circumstances! Ummm... I think you might find several willing... participants... over in the S&S thread, though!!!  LOL

Well, you might have heard this before, but...

Nice girls ask, but naughty(i.e. really GOOD) girls find out for themselves.

Does that help any? ;)

That sounds like a challenge to me .... and I always answer to a challenge. So ... naughty or nice ... naughty or nice .... we'll find out tomorrow if Santa is bringing me something.

Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Rani Zemirah on January 06, 2009, 03:02:56 PM
Warm and cooperative booty??? Beats cold and combative, I guess, but what kind of treasure gets warm and cooperative??? Exactly what kind of gems would it contain?? Would it lead you to it instead of making you follow a map?

Oh yeah, it's fairly cold here, also...  maybe I need to do a little treasure hunting, too...?  ;)
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: MacLaren on January 06, 2009, 03:49:44 PM
Held in properly firm, but gentle hands all booty, er, treasure, warms. All true treasure lets you know how to find it, the trick is to.....can't give all the secrets away, now can I? ;D

Post by: Rani Zemirah on January 06, 2009, 03:56:42 PM
Oh no fair!  :(  And here I thought we shared a moment at the party on NYE... you probably don't even remember whispering in my ear, though... (sigh)

And you won't even share this little secret with me...  :'(   Even though I could probably use a little warm and cooperative booty er, treasure... more than anyone else you could name!!!
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: MacLaren on January 06, 2009, 04:23:42 PM
If I ever whispered in anyone's ear, I'd remember yours. Wait, I do remember!

Part of finding the best booty, er, treasure, is to never, EVER play fair! I think we may be in the same proverbial boat. If our ships cross paths, maybe that could be remedied? ;)
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Rani Zemirah on January 06, 2009, 04:44:02 PM
Oh but you did... however, perhaps I should remind you of the circumstances... You were holding the phone at the time, I was on the other end, and you were barely holding yourself upright...  LOL 

I believe you had been having quite a lot of fun just recently (since it was about 12:15am), and you mentioned you were hoping to have company when you went out to sleep in the backseat!!!   ::)

I'll have to keep your proposition in mind, in case I'm ever in your neck of the... harbor. I think I need a bit of a corrupting influence, anyway, since I tend to go for the fair play first and think of the personal gain only later. Maybe I need some pillage and plunder practice?!? It's about time I got a little booty treasure... for myself!

Question is... am I pirate enough to keep it all for myself, or will I play fair and share...?

 
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: MacLaren on January 06, 2009, 07:33:39 PM
Oh, I remember, dear. Believe me I remember.

I seem to remember being half carried inside around 3, and definitely woke up alone. Damned Scotch, after something sweet(Loki?), after champagne, after beer, after Scotch, after beer got me.

Ah, but you miss one thing about pirates. Playing "fair" isn't in the "code", but between pirates(two, anyway), sharin' is a must. Pillagin' can be quite the adventure! Don't let yer mind go where the typing just went.......it just doesn't sound right typed out. It sounded better rattlin' 'round the dustbowl.

Post by: Rani Zemirah on January 06, 2009, 07:42:47 PM
At least you made it to midnight!!! Zaubon didn't even think you would be able to hold the phone!!!  ROFL 

I think I could be up for a little adventure sometime soon! It's been far too long... So, there seems to be a lot to remember about all this pillagin' an' plunderin' stuff! Maybe I need an instructor?
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: MacLaren on January 06, 2009, 08:02:53 PM
These bones were going from 5AM as usual. Rack time is typically early, so making Midnight is a feat for sure!

Instructin'? Hmm, not sure I'd be the best at teachin' the pillagin' an' plunderin', but the adventurin' would sure be fun sometime!

LOL   I'm fairly well up on all the adventurin' techniques (remind me to tell you some of those stories sometime!), but maybe there's something I can learn from you about booty er, treasure?!? Like this handling technique for warming it... what's up with that???


ROFL!!!

Post by: MacLaren on January 06, 2009, 08:30:03 PM
I wouldn't want to go to me quarters without tellin' ye I must get a bit o' rest. I'd be happy to show you how to warm the, uh......later. It requires instruction.

Anyway, there's a bit o' loot to be had at dawn, and any good captain leads the charge into piratin'!

There better be rum and cheeseburgers or there'll be Hell to pay!

Isn't it in keeping with the Canon of St. Jimmy that Changes in Attitudes and Lattitudes are a necessary part of piratin'?  A quick glance at the Letter of Marque indicates that a cut off the top of all booty - treasure - is to go our Faire Queene or your Commodore Saltwater - just sayin!
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Rani Zemirah on January 07, 2009, 08:31:16 AM
LOL  LOTS more, I'm thinkin'...  LOL

Now Mistress Taffy, how would that rule translate to... intangible... booty? You know, those things which can't be easily divided (or even handed over whole)? Things like cheeseburgers and margaritas are easy to share, but some things could be damaged by such handling! And there are still other things which might not appeal to either the Commodore or our lovely Queen... what of those things???
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Taffy Saltwater on January 07, 2009, 09:26:46 AM
There's booty and then there's booty.  While some booty - & booty - may be better aged, like rum and Alan Rickman, your average cheeseburger does not withstand the test of time so well, so have at! 

Now booty on the other hand is every Orderer for themselves!
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Rani Zemirah on January 07, 2009, 09:30:10 AM
Well, that being clarified, I guess it's just left to determine exactly what sort of "booty" we're talking about, then, eh???

Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Taffy Saltwater on January 07, 2009, 09:45:23 AM
Well, now, since I put Alan Rickman in the category of booty, I think we can come to the understanding that booty in italics means yummy, droolable, hawt on legs, leaving each Orderer to their own idea of perfect booty, with the further understanding that sometimes perfect means what's - available.

Booty (non-italicized) is material and may be even better than booty (can you say chocolate?).
Title: Re: Royal Order of Landsharks
Post by: Rani Zemirah on January 07, 2009, 10:17:39 AM
Well, I'm going to have to reserve personal judgment on the italicized booty... but I think I have the general idea...  LOL  Perhaps we need a few more examples of it, though, eh??? 

I'm guessin' the chocolate better be presented for portioning, eh, but anyonething that could melt the chocolate from a few feet away is mine to keep, if I so chose?!?

I did lots of things... LOL  Whatever I thought the tourists would pay to see, or buy! I danced for Pedro, the Conga player, squeezed lemonade for Mike, sold Noodles for the Noodle Man, assisted the slack rope walker with his show, helped the Coconut man weave hats and baskets... more, even, but seldom my own gig. I was too unsettled to take the time to develop my own thing then, so I mostly worked for other people who were already established.

Oh, that winter I also sold dogs for the Hot Dog Man on the street kitty corner from Sloppy's, in front of that little local clothing shop that they turned into a Banana Republic a few years later... I have a voice that can be heard through Friday night partiers at 1am during Fantasy Fest... so I was a natural... LOL

I regret having gotten so caught up in mundane life that I've not taken the time to say hello to all the new Landsharks! :o

I'd sentence myself to a week without any Jimmy Buffet....but I'd never make it, and would consider that cruel and unusual punishment.

Apologies, and greetings to all the new "Sharks that swim on the land!"

I might be able to find a free (or at least borrowed) hour or two, since it's going to be just flat out one event after another...  LOL  I'd love to get together and lift a couple, although I'll have my renlet with me, so it can't get much more crazy than that for me!  :o

I discovered Pineapple Rum during AHE, and I'd be willing to bet it could be made into all sorts of yummy Frozen Concoctions!!!  Been a while since I've had a chance to pray to Saint Jimmy...  :P  :D

It's still up in the air as to whether or I not I'll be able to attend.  I may be making attempts to go to some other steamy events as I had such a good time at WindyCon.  Also, I'm sure I'll be spending some $$$ in late March when ComicPalooza and Phil Foglio open in Houston.

Mom and I will be at RenDezvous, too.  We'd love to meet up.  Now, to find the salt!  :)

BTW, we also wear our phins proudly. 

All this flavored rum.  Coconut or pineapple rum, hmmm... Can't decide which is better.  Maybe mix them together.  Pina colada is one of my favorite frozen drinks!  ;)

Post by: Taffy Saltwater on December 08, 2009, 01:56:32 PM
It's up in the air as to whether or not I'll be attending RendDezvous.  *fingers crossed*

But all this talk of RUM has gotten me to thinking (dangerous, I know) about rum, boat drinks, and rum.  So --

What's your favorite sippin' rum: (Pyrate)
Mixing rum:  Black cherry (w/diet coke), among others
Favorite rum drink:   (Mai Tai)
Favorite rum drink recipe:

1-1/2 oz light rum  
1/2 oz dark rum
1/4 oz orgeat syrup
1/4 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz triple sec
juice of 1/2  - 1 lime (depending on the size & juiciness of said lime)

Shake w/ice; strain over fresh rocks.  This is an A1 special MaiTai & better than 90% of the MaiTai's I enjoyed in Hawaii.


Title: Re: Favorite Rum?
Post by: mieljolie on December 08, 2009, 02:27:33 PM
I discovered Vanilla rum this season of TRF.  Mmmm, good!  

Black cherry sounds really good.  I really enjoy cherry Coke.

CaptMorgan Private Stock is pretty sippable.  :)

A Hurricane will set me on the party path every time!!!

 Hurricane Cocktail Recipe

1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
3 ounces dark rum
1 ounce light rum
4 ounces passion fruit syrup
Crushed ice
Orange and/or lime slice
1 Maraschino Cherry

In a cocktail shaker, add lemon juice, rum, passion fruit syrup, and crushed ice; shake vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes and then strain into a tall glass or hurricane glass.

Garnish with an orange and/or lime slices and a maraschino cherry.

Makes 1 serving.

Alternatively, there a drink called a Lazy Conch that was invented in Key West for a contest, beach party at the Holiday Inn beach, thrown by our favorite Captain many years ago as a promo...

Lazy Conch

2 oz. Captain Morgan's Spiced rum
2 oz. Welch's white grape juice

Shake over ice, then strain into martini glass. Garnish with skewered green grapes. Yum!!!

If neither of those are available, then either a frozen daiquiri or simply rum mixed with fruit juices will work just as well.  I'm not really big on sipping rum, but I do have to admit that the Pyrates I got to try at TRF was pretty smooth, although the Cruzan pineapple rum I discovered was incredibly sippable!!!
Title: Re: Favorite Rum?
Post by: mieljolie on December 11, 2009, 10:47:19 AM
Lazy Conch

2 oz. Captain Morgan's Spiced rum
2 oz. Welch's white grape juice

Come to think of it, I've had rum (and other spirits) with just about ever juice imaginable, but for some strange reason never with grape juice.  This is really odd considering I usually have a bottle of white grape juice in the fridge.  :)

I regret that I will no longer be able to send out the phin and Letters after these last two.  But I will be glad to enter new folks into the Big Pink Rolodex of Doom.

What I'm craving is just a little bit of paradise...  Some sun, sand, maybe a frozen concoction or two.  I was supposed to be headed to Florida at the end of this week, but finances and the vagaries of life have sent me in another direction, instead.  No surf, but I'll be in the Memphis area, so I'm sure I'll be able to find a little rock-n-roll somewhere...

If ya get a chance, head out to the new Jimmy Buffett concert tour.  My mom & I went last night and the margaritas were cold and the music was hot.  Lots of fun.

As much fun as it was, it was - I'm sorry to say - my last concert at that particular venue.   Neither one of us could get comfortable  and it's too an expensive a night to sit out in the vendors' area, which is what we ended up doing.

I'll try to remember to post when they do their live concerts on internet radio.  Phins UP, Landsharks!

St. Jimmy has been hospitalized in Sydney after falling off the stage.   :'(  Let's all join together in sending The Man our best wishes for a fast and complete recovery.

– 1 hr 8 mins ago

SYDNEY – Singer Jimmy Buffett fell off a stage at the end of a concert in Sydney and was rushed to the hospital.

Australia's Daily Telegraph reports that audience members saw the 64-year-old fall face first off the stage and hit his head.

Buffett's manager then took the stage and urged fans to leave the auditorium, the Hordem Pavillion.

The singer was brought to Sydney's St. Vincent's Hospital.

Wednesday night's concert was Buffett's fifth and last in Sydney on his current tour.

I apologize that I haven't made any new phins & Letters of Marque in a looooong time - time does get away from a person.  

Once Debauched & Merlin and Lady Nimue, please send me an RM w/your dane names & mailing addresses and I will do my utmost to scrounge through my "makings" box & get your phins out this week.  I'm going to be moving in the next few weeks and my address book is in a box somewhere.

Just going down the street.  The original move was a couple of years ago, but I've been wanting to move from my current place for quite a while.  I'm really looking forward to having some space to spread out a bit.  Thanks for the well wishes - I really appreciate it.

I've got the feeling I'm going to need a pitcher - or two - by the time this is all through.  However, this weekend the heat really started to crank up and the move is going to be none too soon.

We use evaporative coolers here to add humidity to our homes...otherwise your wood furniture will dry out and split.  Never needed that in St. Louis!!

The only good thing I can say about Houston humidity is it does help keep away the wrinkles.

I miss the "swamp coolers" in CO... they usually take less electricity to run than an AC system, and it's always nice to have that little extra bit of humidity after being out in the high desert all day.

First, the good news; the Phins & Letters of Marque went out today.

Now the bad news: I am officially out of Pins, and even sent my personal pin,  Therefore, I will be unable to send any in the future.  If anyone sees fit to join our little group in the future, I will E-mail a Letter of Marque.

Phins UP!
