On the Universe & Being Shameless

September 28th, 2013 No Comments - Talk Like A Pirate Day - Krispy Kreme - Captain Bubbles

It was Talk Like A Pirate Day last week. Since I’ve learned about the holiday 7 years ago, I’ve transformed into Captain Bubbles and went to work as such. Last year, I sailed to the township of Long Beach to plunder a pastry shopped called Krispy Kreme.

Actually, I should call this as Five for January. I haven’t written on of these since Christmas!  Well, having the year end recap, my 2013 goals, and Race on the Base updates did throw me for a loop.  We’ll just go with whatever I fancy for the past month, alright?

Since you all know me so well over here, this installment of my update as the Face of the Race for the Los Alamitos Race on the Base is going to be a little bit different than the version posted over there. Don’t forget to give them some love anyway. Race on the Base will be my first race, ever.

I’ve changed a few categories from the past years but you’ll still get the idea. 2012: Year of Costumes Instead of giving you 12 pictures from the 12 months, I’m giving you the pictures of all the cosplays I’ve done and costumes I’ve worn this year instead!
