It's Coming Up Soon

From the Official website :
Sept 19 'th will be here soon !

Media, entertainers, the Internet embrace Talk Like A Pirate Day.
Pirates, Pirates, Pirates!
2009 buzz:
It seems the founders of Talk Like a Pirate Day have somehow become Legitimate News Sources. At least the venerable Wall Street Journal seems to think so when they called - and quoted - Cap'n Slappy back in April for a front-page story about Somali Pirates.
Speakin' of Talk Like A Pirate Day turning up in odd places, by Ol' Chumbucket's count the holiday has been featured in:
A question in Trivial Pursuit
An answer on Jeopardy
A question on Hollywood Squares
Two quotes on NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
While we can't take credit for it, we raised a mug o' rum at the news in June that Sweden's small but hearty Pirate Party (no, the other kind of party) garnered enough votes to win a seat on the European Union Parliament.
HEE to Bastille Day, this is my favorite holiday !
Party Hearty Matey's !
ARRRRR !!!!!
Aunty Pol

One of my friends' daughter is getting married next year... pirate themed wedding. :-) Regulation vows, however.

But, on another blog I love, Stephen published... yes, you guessed it, pirate wedding vows!

This couple is a stitch! I highly recommend his LOLTrek and LOLwedding vows, too. Oh, and then there are all the Dragon*Con bumpers...

Oh, and his "How to [insert topic] in Many Easy Steps" series.

Fix a toilet, argue badly... many topics. :-)
