International Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day Revisited

Last Wednesday, September 19th, was International Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day. I started the day off with an e-mail from my best friend Peter, a writer who lives in Melbourne, Australia. He writes the Blog 6 things, top of my “Other Links” list. There was no text in his e-mail – just this photo…

Avast! A Pirate Keyboard! There be an “A” there somewhere, me hopes! Arrr!

Last Wednesday’s lessons (actually, most of last week’s lessons) were all about how to talk pirate. Some of the students really got into the spirit of the day by posing for pirate photos with me…

You can check out some of the photos at the Be & Me Photo Albums. (Don’t forget to click on “Page 2.”)

And speaking of photos! You can find many, many, many more International-Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day photos at the Official Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day Photo Album, including…

A lot of pets dressed as pirates!

I added the “Rrrr!” – I sure the original photographer doesn’t mind!

In my lunch break on Wednesday, I had to do some errands [small jobs – going to the bank, sending letters, and so on]. As I was walking back to the school along Shinsaibashi Street, I heard a strange “clink-clanking” noise. I turned my head to see where it was coming from and I saw…

A medieval knight drinking iced green tea!
Did he think it was Walk-Like-a-Knight Day?

I looked around but could see no evidence of any kind of promotion. Apparently, this guy was just going for a walk in his suit of armour! And he looked hot – and I don’t mean “sexy!”

I enjoyed International Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day so much this year, I’ve decided to organise a Pirate Party next year. I hope you can join us! Arrrr!!!
