Talk Like a Pirate Day

1 Corinthians 2:7 ~ No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.

It is in this vain that I discovered a few nights at Yaks, that years ago when I worked in the field doing archaeology for the University of New Mexico, and my crew wanted me to dress like a pirate on my birthday (they actually brought clothes), it was not because they/we were all crazy. It WAS 'talk like a pirate day'. I am ever so happy to finally have closure in this area of my life, and I think I may finally put my seafaring days behind me.

Fun stuff... So my Pirate name is either:

Pirate Quincy the Fashionably Late


Iron Davy Kidd

I also took the Official Talk Like a Pirate Personality Inventory (TOTLAPPI)...

You are ...

The Cap'n

Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.
