    September 19th "talk like a pirate day"

    Ahoy! This monumental occasion occurs on September 19, and as I write this, that is only 3 hours and 45 minutes away by my clock. My hands are shaking with excitement and my heart is filled with wonder and joy...

    Here is the official headquarters of Talk like a Pirate

    If you need to brush up on your pirate talking skills, here is an informative video for you to do just that.

    Haaar!

    I propose that we all dress up as pirates for the day!

    She be a fine saucy parrot, young wench.

    (sorry about the wench part, but if you watch the video you will see that is the only appropriate pirate term for "female" ...and yaarh, I feel silly but who cares! )

    Yarrr. Jim-Jim-Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim. The one-legged man brings death! The one-armed one-eyed one-legged man brings lots of death! Bring the yardarm abaft and cast the off mizzen and other nautical terms.

    Yes and we didn't even get to plunder any treasures or walk anyone on the plank!

    Your welcome, Vintage...keep Precious around for next September.

    Scher, I too feel the pain a lack of plunderin' and plank walkin' has wrought.
