Arrrrr Matey

Today is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. September 19th every year, as a matter of fact, National Talk Like a Pirate Day. I've been to the Talk Like a Pirate website and I have to tell you, I'm not at all sure why today should be/would be/is a day where we all blog in a voice that reminds me of Mr. Crab from SpongeBob Squarepants. I do know that it says "Because we're guys, and because we can."

I'm not a guy does that mean I can't? I just don't know. The real question is, do I want to?

Well, I wanted to want to so I thought I'd hunt around and convince myself. So I went from the website to the blog to the videos. These are evidence of true dedication!

Note that they even get the kids involved. And that's where I figure I really do want to do this. I've got photographers coming from the Charlotte Observer today, and I'm thinking pictures of our family dressed as pirates in the newspaper would be funny. I don't think the kids or Scott'll go for it.

    We're dressing like pirates.

    For Halloween.


    Pickles keeps insisting she wants to be a unicorn and Jack says Harry Potter again.
    So it might be unicorn pirate and Cap'n Harry Beard Potter.

    (gotta go read about the photo shoot, now)

    Hey, wait!
    Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
