The leaves are turning, the days are getting shorter, the air is getting cooler... and the eyepatches and peg legs are about to be dusted off... International Talk Like a Pirate Day is upon us again!
And of course, this day is extra special for the Dread Pirate Robert too: it falls on the same week as my wedding anniversary, so my lusty wench of a wife will have to deal with my inadvertent mashups of the two events. "Happy Anniversary, sweetie... Prepare to be boarded! Arrr!" That'll turn out well.
If you need a bit of a primer on how to get yo' pirate on in the 21st century, check out Pirattitude by Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket (Mark Summers and John Baur) or just visit the website -- more pirate stuff than you can fit on a galleon.
Get ready for Wednesday!
