    Oh, we think the same way...I'm not fussy, whether pirate or not. And here he has a guitar.

    I like guitars. With boys.

    Ahem, anyway.

    Aye! Pirate day! Avast, ye landlubbers...

    I'm not so great at that...I'm setting Facebook to "Pirate" though, for the occasion.

    LoL Lioness :p ... I like black long hair with man ... Or without man.. I would marry bunch of hair if someone nicely donate it for me.. (And here comes address of my po box, LOL)

    I cannot send pics yet, I already tried to send pirate eyes to this thread, LOL

    Back to topic

    "Ya trash face, swing your sword and let the sun dance on it"
    ( I do not know how to say it on pirate language... )

    Lol...I'm not a fan of long hair on guys. But for him I make an exception. Generally prefer him with shorter hair though.

    But yes, back on topic, and away from the "Johnny Depp talk like a pirate day" thread.

    For pirate language, this may be of help to people.

    Now, where can I find a bottle of rum?

    Alright! Hand over all your CDs and DVDs so's I can copy them all!


    And perhaps the best pirate line for a dance class comes from "The Pirates of Penzance":
    "Men! Man your women!"

    Now that that day is past, I can reveal the source. My friend has read a number of books by Alexander McCall Smith, the author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. One book, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/44_Scotland_Street]44 Scotland Street[/url], included (as I recall from her telling of it) the adventures of a female anthropologist who was researching South China Sea pirates. She found a South China Sea pirate community and entered into it and became a part of the community, as anthropologists will do in order to research those communities. They would make mention of their pirate activities, but never offered any details, apparently because she was not yet completely trusted. Then she caught wind of that the men were preparing to depart on a pirating expedition. She followed the men's boats to a remote island and observed them entering into a building. She crept up to that building, up to one of its windows, and raised herself up to peer inside and ... that installment of the story ended. And it was several installments later that the readers finally learned of her fate. The piracy that that community engaged in was the illegal copying of CDs and DVDs.

    Now let us await 25 May, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Towel_day']Towel Day[/URL]. Do you know where your towel is?

    I'm all for equal opportunity piracy. *grin*

    As far as May 25, as you've known for years, D, I am a poor, towel-less waif. Perhaps it would behoove me to get my act together before spring. I'll get right on it.
