Avast, me 'arties

Ahoy, ye many landlubbers! It be international Talk Like a Pirate Day an' I be spendin' the second dog watch, lazin' in me bunk an' knittin' on Mermaid, as only befits the day. There be a few pictures:

She be a beauty, an' no mistake - 'er's no buxom wench, 'er's skinny 'an saucy.

I be off fer a touch 'o grub an' grog.

May yer decks be swabbed, may yer booty be bountiful!

Fair winds, me hearties.

Eight bells an' all's well - be sure an' not to turn yer eye from knit like a pirate - it be a fair marvel.

It be about time to heave to, put down the killick, strike the red ensign and retire to me bunk.

Hah, love to see people who properly get into the spirit of pirate day. All I managed was a vague 'yarr' at the builders next door before I forgot by the afternoon. Very pretty shawl as well, though maybe not fit for a pirate :P

Oh, I always miss "talk like a pirate day". I must put it in my PDA. Very enjoyable, yarr.

Oh, and the shawl start is lovely, too!
