Today is very exciting me matey’ s… its that time of year again to mark International Talk like a Pirate Day! I’ve blogged about this before in 2010 and even in 2009…
Earlier this summer a friend convinced me to join pinerest (and I did, but haven’t been back since the 3rd day…bc I was way overwhelmed of all the choices…), but that good friend DID find me THIS image…. and I must admit it struck something inside of me…(Warning: Scroll fast if you dont’ want to see an F-bomb!)
Some days… that just sums up life! Wouldn’t it be way cool to live on a boat, usually in a hot sunny climate and scrounge around for food and treasure…with an abundance of rum, sun and sandy beaches? Escaping all the crappy parts of life… Don’t forget you’d be hanging out with your pirate buddies like Johnny and Orlando?
Ok I know they are ONLY pirates in Hollywood..but still let me have my moment to dream! I will have to be able satisfied dressing up as a pirate, talking like a pirate once and awhile..and sometimes changing my FaceBook language to pirate once and awhile… this is something you SHOULD try today in honour of “Talk-Like-a Pirate-Day”!
So, Drink up, me hearties! Have some rum because I sure won’t be where I’m living!!! Arrrrrr… I’m off to swab me’ decks…and fill up on some grub and go in search of some buried treasure!
Hope you have a fantastically awesome Pirate Day!
I’ve always had a deep love of pirates… and no it started way before Johnny Depp became one… (although that has made the love grown stronger..who can blame me!?!)
Oh and let us not forget Mr. Bloom who also made some of us girls hoping to meet a pirate some day!
But I think my love of pirates really did start back as a teenager… when at this summer camp and it too had a deep affinity to pirates…(which is an inside joke). One of the Mayors’ of a 9 & 10 year old Section of the camp made up a song that was all about how everyone that worked at the camp were pirates.
It was a quite clever song with the the chorus and verses made up of ‘inside’ jokes of things that happened that summer that only staff would know about. Thinking back about this makes me smile, but part of it is kind of silly…like you might only remember if you were a pirate working at that camp! Even years later.. I still remember my ‘pirate’ days along the beaches of Lake Clearwater!
Alas there is something deep down inside of me that will always want to be a pirate!
Today is Officially “Talk like a Pirate Day”…. to mark that day… you get to see me in my full pirate gear…I am not one to be messed with..!!
Aye – that’s right! So, Drink up, me hearties!
Arrrrrr. shiver me timders….I’m off to swab me’ decks…and fill up on some grub.. and look for some buried treasure!
