One more bit of pirattitude

I think Talk Like a Pirate Day needs to be on a weekend more often. :-) Been listening to Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew for most of the day (with The Arrogant Worms song "The Last Saskatchewan Pirate" thrown in for good measure). Over at Ravelry the annual special programming that converts forum and group posts into piratespeak was activated and merrily in use in some of the places I hang out in there (it's an optional thing so it's not inflicted on those who aren't interested). Didn't notice any parrots perched on anybody's user pics though (in past years they've appeared on any that had the word "pirate" included in the name). And I declared that the day also merited some theme reading and decided on Kage Baker's pair of pirate novellas: "The Maid on the Shore" (which is included in her Dark Mondays) and it's sequel Or Else My Lady Keeps the Key ... finished the first earlier today and am currently partway through the second. :-)
