It's Talk Like a Pirate Day! Cute button, huh? I stole it from the Wikipedia Pirate page.
For more information and lotsa good links about International Talk Like a Pirate Day, check my last year's Piratey post. There's links for making grog, and plenty of other pirate stuff.
Arrrgh, swash my buckle, and shiver me timbers, it's hard to believe it's been a whole year.
Speaking of booty, you gotta see this video clip: Pirate vs. Ninja. It's a mighty chuckle-fest and appropriate for the day.
To help you make it through the day, Jack Sparrow's Coffee is a must.
And be it known that moderate doses of RUM help yer ability to talk like a pirate. So get ye out there and celebrate, pirate-style. Avast there! Shove off and heave to. Or something like that.
