Shiver me timbers! Be ye prepared fo' Sept 19th?!

When my friend Mel told me that Sept 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day, I thought she made it up among friends.
Turns out it really is official.
Check it out here.
Turns out the yoho yoho of our beloved Mr. Depp is all the rage--one friend of mine just celebrated his 50th birthday pirate style. Guests wore tatoos, eye patches, different hats. It was perfect for a guy with Yahr as a last name..."Ahrr be gahr yahr..."

The site has fun links, such as how to talk like a pirate in different languages,
and how to knit a booty bag like a pirate:

If I can't get my co-workers to go in on this, I will have them walk the plank, en masse. Arrrrrrr.

OMG, I totally missed a whole day of talking like a pirate on purpose. Ironically, when I tucked my princess in and read her bedtime story, there was a salty old sea captain in it and I gave him a pirate voice, and I didn't even know it was pirate-speak day. Maybe I'm other-worldly attuned to the pirates. Cool.
