Talk Like a Pirate Day

Shiver me timbers! Talk Like a Pirate Date be upon us again! Arrr!

Years and more years back, in 2007 if me memory be good, one of me Livejournal mateys posted a fine link about a great pirate, perhaps the bestest one ever to sail the seas in the adventuring trade. I made meself a note of the link, so I be remembering it today. Click through on this here link, if ye will, and read about it:
    "Most successful pirate was beautiful and tough" — CNN scribe Maggie Koerth be the one who writ this.

How about that, mateys? The greatest ever to sail in the adventuring trade were a Chinese woman, so say the article. And yon article weren't even written in talk-like-a-pirate talk. Me sister-in-law be Chinese too,but she aren't never been a pirate.

And, arrgh, this here talkin' like a pirate be not so easy to do in written print. But it aren't really written print, no. It really be typed-on-the-net writin'. But ye all know that, since ye be readin' it on the net yerselves.

The therapists at my PT place were dressed up today. Since it's a month before Halloween, and there was a pirate-y theme to the outfits, I did assume it was in celebration of this day.

Arr! I just noticed your comment. I think you're right about the costumes. It's fun that they make something of such a silly occasion.
