It was a great success in that many people knew my plan. Unfortunately I had the flu that day and spend the day asleep. Arghhh. 5 years ago
So I went to me Raster Graphics class today, Savvy? And the scurvy land lubber says to me “I didn’t realize you were gang affiliated,” as I had me pirate lass’s band on me head. I say “No, it be talk like a pirate day!” And he says “OH YEAH I forgot!” And that brought up the whole bleedin’ conversation, even me scalawag professor knew about it, says I.
Also me pirate buddy Cap’n CoCo ‘n I had a conversation on Facebook.

Well, today is the day, but I completely forgot about it…again! And I haven’t practiced my pirate lingo =[
Oh well, maybe next year. 5 years ago
Perhaps I’ll wear my shirt?
I’ll be studying up on good phrases to work into conversation.
How about the word “Bung hole”? As defined here.

Ok, so I blew it already 5 years ago
Printed out some phrases for the boys to practice on the drive during their hour long commute to school.

Ye canna be a-talkin’ like a pirate wi’out havin’ a good laugh, me hearties! 6 years ago
I was in a toy store the other day and noticed a whole wall of pirate related toys and games. The love of all things pirate like is spreading! 6 years ago
Saw a book the other day called “Women were Pirates, Too” so then I looked on the internet to see if there was any info there. Turns out there were quite a few famous ones. Apparently pirates thought it was bad luck to have women on board. Hmmmm. 6 years ago
I put “Mary” in a pirate name generator once and got “blah blah Hawkins” out of it… 6 years ago
Saw a t-shirt at the mall that said “in touch with my inner pirate”. Must lose more weight and dye my hair many colors before I can pull off wearing it at my age. 6 years ago

It’s Pirate day whenever it’s not Elvis Day or Cowboy Day. Arr!
Oh, or Darth Vader day. 6 years ago
Just having people stare at you when you randomly shout ARRRRRRRRRRRRRR! makes all the fun. My only suggestion, Get as many friends as you can to do this with you! 6 years ago
Somehow I just forgot about it on the day. Oh well, maybe next year. 6 years ago
Did it. :) Made my week. I dressed like a pirate as well. Figured I’d go all out. 6 years ago
I missed it! Oh well what’s to stop me from doing this whenever the moment strikes me. First gotta teach my dear daughter to say “aaaaargh!” instead of “uahhhhhhhhhh!” (the sound of a high pitched commanding whine that despite my best parenting skills of not giving into she still does it!) 6 years ago
...but I just had to share this.
I use a web-based IM client called meebo. In honor of “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” they created “Pirate Speak”. When turned on, all incoming and outgoing IMs are translated into pirate talk.
It’s pretty cool!
If you’re interested, check out meebo. 6 years ago
Another Talk Like a Pirate Day has come and gone . . . and we did celebrate. We didn’t go as all-out as we could have (my son decided that he’s just “not into pirates” right now – what a SCROOGE :D). But I did wear my skull and crossbones t-shirt (The floggings will continue until morale improves), and I did do some good pirate talking. ARRRRGH!!!!!
I love this holiday. hugs Pirate day6 years ago
I was in a ripe mood last night because I had a toothache, so it put me in a good mood to talk like a blooming pirate. 6 years ago
This could have been a lot more fun if I didn’t work in a kind of yuppie coffeehouse. My bosses definitely would not have appreciated this.
Maybe next year…mateys. 6 years ago
Blow down my timbers, I’ve got to stir my stumps.
I’d be seein’ my matey, an we going to be pundering some local establishments type places so he can earn some much desired gold. 6 years ago
