    Just thought I'd let everyone know I'm still alive and well, my absence has been noted in certain quarters and I will be endeavouring to pop on a bit more often....But not this weekend...This weekend I will be dressed as a pirate and hitting people with rubber swords.

    Surely nobody has been hassling the Forum's second favourite rat...?

    I learnt a good synonym of pirate the other day - Picaroon - as in "This weekend I will be dressed as a picaroon..."

    Picaroon sounds heavily influenced by Thora Hird and Alan Bennett.

    I was going to let that go by - but now I have to admit that I could only think of Cap'n Picard being marooned on an island in Picardy, with only a supply of picaresque macaroons to provide a break from his diet of raccoons and piccalilli.

    Not sure what it was - but, I got it from McAloon's, though...

    Picaresque derives from picaroon [Sp picaron, augmentative of picaro rogue]
