Arrr! Darn!

Once again, I missed International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

(Brief interlude while I explain to Mrs. Unfocused what I’m talking about.  Mrs. Unfocused is not quite as much of a geek as I am, although she is our household sysadmin, so maybe she just has better things to do.)

As I was saying, for the fifth consecutive year, I have missed International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and utterly failed, failed, failed I tell you, to talk like a pirate at ALL.

(It was last Friday, in case you missed it too.)

If I hadn’t been catching up on Mike’s blog, at which he discusses, well, everything under the sun, including International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and Freshhell’s Life in Scribbletown, where apparently even the Scribbletowners talk like pirates once a year, I might have gone weeks without knowing it.  Thanks, Mike.  Thanks, Freshhell.  Thanks a LOT.

I need some kind of countdown clock, like the one I have on the sidebar for Pi Day (scroll down; it’s on the right).  Anybody have one I could borrow?


I know, I know, it’s too late.  Darn.

By the way, I’m doing a little traveling, so I have pre-written this post and time-shifted it by a day, so it will magically appear on the blog even while I’m doing something else entirely!  Yes, I just figured out how to do that.  Yes, that’s kind of sad.  But still!
