His Chair Ooh Argghh, Li'l Matey

All right you lily livered land lubbers, check yer main sails, 'cause September 19th be Talk Like A Pirate Day, and we don't want you caught in a stiff wind with no sail!

I have no idea what that means. I am so out of practice. This is embarrassing. Well, if you are like me, and have not practiced proper pirate grammar all year, then it's a good thing I am reminding you to brush up! Sunday is the day, and you don't want to sound ridiculous, like me. I must get a hold of a copy of Pirates of Penzance and apprentice myself to a Pirate King!

Not Ferris, his paws. They are covered in tree sap. Or is it pitch, from climbing the mast of his ship? I wonder what his pirate name is?

I wonder what Your pirate name is... do share.

Curled up in his favorite chair, dreaming of feathered creatures, and tree tops, Ferris rests up for the big day, when we will call All hands on deck!

I am, entirely, unashamedly, in love with Ferris.

Do you have a special calendar with important dates like Talk Like a Pirate Day, and the anniversary of the beheading of that chicken? And if you do, can I get one, too? I feel like I'm missing out on very important events...

It's 4:15 a.m. and I've been awake since 2:00, so my brain isn't currently thinking in a pirate kind of way. I would so love to come up with a clever pirate name for myself. Maybe Maria could think of one for me!

I need one of those calendars that Miriam mentioned.
