So today is Talk Like A Pirate Day. Since I'm writing all the time, becoming a shut-in, and hardly get out of the house anymore, I don't have too many folks to whom I can talk like a pirate. I mean, yarrr, um, my hearties. And I only know one pirate. I never know what to make of her blog, but it makes me laugh (in a NSFW or school kinda way), so there ye go. Yarrr.

Of course, my other favorite pirate is Steve.
