Piratey and Bloggy Action

Ahoy me heaaarrty readers!

An encore presentation of etown has alerted me to a great new site which I just need to let you know about.

There is a writing tutoring service in the US called 826 Valencia and it’s supported by a pirate supplies shop. I shall link you also to the signs page [link removed, broken] as it made me laugh out loud for a long time. I also recommend the Store Log as being a good & funny read.

Coincidentally I had yesterday been taking an interest in “Talk like a pirate day”, September 19th. Take this link to look at a Pirate Keyboard. And here is a little graphic I got after doing a questionnaire to find out my Pirate Name:

My pirate name is:
Calico Bess Bonney

Often indecisive, you can’t even choose a favorite color. You’re apt to follow wherever the wind blows you, just like Calico Jack Rackham, your namesake. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate’s life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

As you can see I am experimenting with putting bits of code from various places in. They seem to work well.

Cheerio and avast me Hearties! Go forth and have a hornpipey weekend!
