Well, yeah, not writing it. But I took the spawn to the Long Beach Pirate Festival today.  It’s kinda like a Ren-Faire but where Jack Sparrow reigns supreme and costuming is far more flexible. One of the cool things going on is the Pirate Festivals seem to have a LOT of steampunk mixed in.  I give you…THE BIKE

It runs.  Don’t know how street legal it is, but it runs.  There’s a rum barrel for a gas tank and the spokes are wood. The turn signals are two lanterns on the aft end.  But lots of eye-patches with rivets and clockparts, dragon-fly pendants where the wings were gears.  My geeky, goth senses were all in overdrive.

I could so get into Pirate Festivals in a way I never really did with Ren-Faires.
