Yarrr!!! And a Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day to you, mateys!

For fun, why don't ye stop in and Find ye inner Pirate?

Today, I'm "Plank Monkey Doris", um, apparently... heh.

Um... Hooray! For Talk Like a Pirate Day! Yarrrr!!!!

What are you doing for Talk Like a Pirate Day? Anything? Anyone? ...Hello?


  • we had a TLPD party at work ( I will post some pictures later on my blog) it would have been better with rum but hey i won't complain. Our VP of the department came by had some stew and spoke in pirate voice and half our floor was laughing and yelling ARRRRGGG in the hallways.

    Tonight the game plan is the TLPD party at Otto's Shurnken Head but I don't know if I will be up that late- this pirate likes to be plundering in the wee hours of dawn after a good nights rest

  • Cap'n Val Jailbait here. The pirate thing saved me today because I vaguely remembered hearing about it, and happened to um, well, not plan a lesson for my social studies time slot today. I thought to myself, "part of the curriculum is that they learn holidays..."

    My hook was the following joke:

    Why couldn't the boy see the pirate movie?

    Because it was rated aaaarrrrrrggggggghhhhhh!!!!

    Then I pulled a pirate ship book off the shelf to read aloud and let them draw piratey pictures.

    Best teacher ever.

  • arr, i be Tax Evadin' Sid Grimm!

    actually i took my father in law to the optical surgeon today and everyone in the office was doing this. 'Arr, lemme take a look here inta me eye-lookin dingus and fry yer peepers like a seagulls egg with me laser beam, arrrrr.'

    it was very professional.

  • S - that is awesome. Knew we could count on you to pull out all the stops. I'll check out the pics later.

    Jessica - you are the best teacher ever. if you didn't teach them about a wholesome american holiday, well then i don't know what one is.

    First Nations - that's priceless. and very good pirate talk, too... i wonder if 'optical surgeon' was a profession born from a life on the high seas. inneresting.

  • ok. this has been driving me nuts.
    what is your avatar? i can tell its a girl-creature with glasses askew. is it eating a chocolate candy? and what kind of creature? these and many more questions are what i think about late at night when the cold winds blooooooow.

    lots of free time.

  • First Nations - so funny you should ask - it had occurred to me in the past that it's maybe not as self-explanitory as i would think.

    It's a bear. More specifically, its a Claire-Bear. That's been my nickname since grade school and its kind of followed me ever since. Once i embraced it in high school, it stopped bothering me and now its marketable. you know, sort of.

    That avatar was created The Boy when he and i first started dating. he stole the pic of the bear off the internet and added my characteristics: the curly dark hair, glasses and earrings.

    The chocolate looking thing is the bear's nose and the glasses are askew because The Boy's MSPaint techniques are also askew.

    Thanks for asking! Really - makes me think i should label it somehow. :)

    minijonb - i keelhauled that scurvydog for you. i think. well, i hope.
