With National Talk Like a Pirate Day (MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY IN THE WORLD!!!!!) coming up this weekend (TOMORROW!!! Sunday, September 19th!) I've been thinking piratey thoughts.
I actually do this all the time, but September 19th makes me want to be extra piratey.
Normally on the nineteenth of September I go all out. Not only do I TALK like a pirate, but I DRESS like one too (Yes. I have a full out costume and I don't mean striped tights and a bandanna. I'm talking a legit-looking costume, complete with cutlass. September 19th it is one of the only days of the year a person can go out in public dressed as a pirate and not totally confuse/scare people.Or at least less so...) but this year the day falls on what is my church's annual picnic. I have to be a photographer, socialize with my church family, and watch my sister get baptized, so maybe not all out this time... (I will however rock a skull and cross bones shirt and be sure and have my pirate dictionary- Yes, I have a full length dictionary of pirate-speak, The Pirates Primer: Mastering the Language of Swashbucklers and Rogues, by George Choundas- in my purse!)
But anyway, while thinking piratey thoughts I came across this shop. They sell mostly stationery and journals. Good majority of it being pirate themed. They're a winner! Check it out!

I hope this, if anything, inspired you to me a little more piratey! National (talk like a) Pirate Day is a great excuse to "find your inner pirate!" Join me! It is a fun game!
Yes, as it 'twould seem, I am wholly all crazy-like. Never a doubt! But, upon mine honour I'm having fun, so let me and my piratical fantasies be. **"A pyrates life be the only life for a man of any spirit" Savvy?
