The Young Lady's high school spring musical opens tonight: The Pirates of Penzance (she's been doing costumes and stage crew stuff). I saw a bit of the rehearsal the other night when I went to pick her up, and their Modern Major-General is quite good, especially for a teen.

But somehow the plotline about the Major-General's numerous nubile daughters has smerged in my mind with Gojyo and Hakkai's wierdly cute little conversation on the bridge in Saiyuki Reload vol. 6 - the one where Hakkai paints this bizarre vision of the domestic bliss he'd like, and finishes with something like "My only worry is that my lovely daughters might fall prey to Uncle Gojyo."

And now I wanna see Gojyo in a pirate hat, singing and dancing and leering at the Major-General's daughters with the rest of the pirate chorus ... . (Lately I can make almost everything come back to Saiyuki if I try hard enough!)

:-D   I knew what you meant! Sorry I made you waste a Girl Scout cookie, but glad I made you laugh! (And sorry you had a ba-a-ad day ... .)

Thanks. Payroll screwed up 30 paychecks, including mine, resulting in no paychecks until after the banks were closed yesterday. Major pain, I seem to keep talking to various people about Saiyuki the last few days.

But who would Gojyo get for his pirate chorus? Sanzo would never tolerate so much noise! Gojyo would make a good pirate, though... (hey, he could be a pirate mentor for Hotaru! And the cross-series wrongness gets deeper and deeper...)

The trouble is, Gojyo would definitely be a Penzance-type pirate, so tender-hearted that he'd always be getting suckered in by the orphans ploy ("The last three ships we took were entirely crewed by orphans!") ... whereas I always figured that Hotaru would get bored halfway through the tedious business of extracting the treasure from the hold of the captured ship and then lose it when the captured crew started yelling insults ... pretty soon the other ship would be a hulk rapidly burning down to the waterline, the other pirates would be glaring at him, and Hotaru would be going "huh?"

Of course, now you've got me imagining Sanzo cringing as the Blair High School players stomp their way through their wonderfully noisy take on "With Cat-Like Tread."

(You're so patient with me!   )
