Sep 19, 2008 What's Going On
OK, I don’t know what it is about pirates. Maybe it’s the SpongeBob connection. Maybe it’s Johnny Depp with dirty teeth and heavy eye make-up. Maybe it’s my innate desire to be free of responsibilities and showers. But pirates are fascinating. So I’m embarrassed that I was unaware that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! I found this out while reading one of my favorite blogs, Polybloggimous, the rantings and musings of a highly entertaining Brooklyn guy who happens to work in the entertainment industry, as a location manager. And his site pointed me to one that quizzed me on everything from my hygiene habits to my love of parrots. After the quiz it gave me my pirate name and a little bio:
Dirty Anne Cash
You’re the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean — not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. You’re musical, and you’ve got a certain style if not flair. You’ll do just fine. Arr!
