The above image should give you some idea of what Wes and I did yesterday. After a long spell of BUH not doing anything, we got back in full force for 40 Acres Fest. This time we were the University Pirate Team, which we actually thought out about as much as you can imagine. Basically, we just dressed as pirates, and wandered around the festival.

Highlights included:

1. taking over booths. In the picture we are seen with the Alliance for a Feminist Option. They were highly amused by us for some reason, and they had a giant nose at their booth.

2. singing karaoke. We sang the "Thong Song", which went on for FAR too long. Really. By the end, we were just emitting half-hearted "uh"s, and "wooo"s in our gruff piratey voices.

3. Some girl walked by as at some point and said "That's gotta be BUH". It's nice to be appreciated.

4. And of course, dancing. We jigged it in style all day long.

Also, Wes and I visited Angela at the grand opening of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. I can rattle of the name of the place because I'm wearing a volunteer shirt that Angela hooked us up with. It also enabled us to wander around wheresoever we pleased. Angela gave us the grand tour, and I must say I'm impressed. Turns out we did a lot of awful things to the Native Americans. Who knew?

Texas history started in 1510 when it was discovered by White Europeans...

Whoa, whoa, we did a lot of what to who?
I must've missed that. All I got out of the whole thing was that Texans tended to get into fights over the size of their small cannons, something about learning makes people want to break the exhibits that are teaching them and that oil is the single greatest thing to ever happen to Texas and we should all be grateful and bow down before those who have used it to change our world for the better and bring riches to a desert state such as ours. may god and his angels sing their praises from on high.

My advice to you...

Whatever you do, don't start calling them Buh Pirates. Someone will hear you wrong.
