Oh to be a Pirate today...

Ahoy! Sara over at Ms. Adventures in Italy reminded me that today is indeed Talk Like A Pirate Day, one of Corrie and my favorite holidays! Arr matey, we are pirate fans. (This all stems from an incident years back when Antonello was trying to explain to me, using his famous hand gestures, what a pirata was. I made him explain it three or four times just because he looked so funny mimicking a pirate!)

If you haven't already, email a barnacle-covered friend in pirate-speak using this site or this one. Then, take this "what kind of swashbuckler are you" test or this one, and, if you fancy pirate-wear, check out some of the facts about pirates and the matching clothing here. And swill a pint or two of grog while you're at it!

Happy "Talk Like A Pirate Day!" May yer day be glorious and filled with grog!

Check out Corrrrrrrie's post about pirate day, too!

Update: Doing some reading through Allora Aspetta's archives, I came across this har-har joke that CoRRRRie posted a while back...perfect for the day of celebration!
