Arrr! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day!

September 19, 2009

I’ve celebrated International Talk Like a Pirate Day the last few years – mostly by engaging in some memorable nonsensical conversations with my coworkers.  Unlike some of the other “holidays” out there, International Talk Like A Pirate Day was created not to sell greeting cards, but to have fun and celebrate all things pirate.  In other words, it feels like a “holiday” without the stress or the agenda.

While I’m not into robbery on the high seas, I can appreciate a pirate’s sense of adventure and passion for travel.  For many of us these days, adventure usually means getting stuck in traffic, getting into an accident or hitting a new high score on your kid’s PlayStation video game. I can also appreciate a pirate’s desire for treasure.  I’m still searching for mine.  However, not to get all spiritual on ye, I’m learning that its not about the treasure, but its about the journey. For now, enjoy this vid:

Ahoy Nadia:

You just reminded me that I have to go back and watch the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I’ve only seen the first one and that was a long time ago. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
