Ahoy!


Today be the 19th o’ September, and lest ye be not aware, International Talk Like a Pirate Day.¹ Arrrrr.

¹ I hae been a celebrant o’ the holiday since 2007 when I first learned of it. That year I enthusiastically put together a series of posts, including a throw-away pirate name post followed by a rather dorky post on how to talk like a pirate, complete with spectrograms of “arrrrrrr.” I feel I did redeem myself, however, with my pirate resume and subsequent rejection letter. In 2008, I put up a pirate ThThTh list. In 2009, I apparently completely forgot about this important holiday. (My excuse was that I was in Spain. This is one of my all time favorite excuses, and I hope to have more opportunities to use it in the future.)

    (on an unrelated note, his wife was wearing one stripey sock and one jigsawpuzzly ankle sock, which reminded me of Phoebe’s tights!)

    Theo’s pirate-speak is insanely cute!

  2. That damsel is in distress!

  3. They are the cutest pirates! Theo is really into the pirate speak. So cute! (And I love his shirt!)

  4. Wow. I had known it was Speak-like-a-pirate day, we could have made the whole carousel-up-in-flame thing a bit more interesting??

  5. We celebrated more subtly. We had spaghetti for dinner.

  6. Wait, when did Theo start talking? I’ve missed a stage!

  7. Arrr, those mateys be adorable!
