Today is TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY. What is this? Well, I think it was just a couple of pirate re-enactors who, during a night of heavy drinking (that's often how we pirate folk receive inspiration),.. came up with the idea to create a day whereby one could spout pirate-speak and not be considered totally insane. Go here for more info.
Whatever the reason,.. it's fun.
For those of you who don't know,.. Pyratical history and black powder weapons is a hobby of mine. I belong to a group (not a guild!) of about 50 like minded people who are the most amazing collection of friends I've ever had. Although I do events all over Southern California, the Rum Runners do one main event a year and that event is going on this weekend and next.
I'm sad because as I write this... they are waking up to the sun over Lake Casitas and getting ready for a weekend of playing pirate. I've had to stay home this weekend to work. I miss them so,... but I'll join them next weekend.
So today,... celebrate your inner pirate. It's in there.. You just have to find it. Aaarrrrgggghhhhhhhh!
