Sorry to break the news to you *ahem* me hearty, but today is almost over. It's 8pm here. You have to start declaring these things the day before.....or travel through time. Whichever you can do better *ahem* me hearty.

Tim said...

Arrrr, blast! I only founds outs this morning!!!

*furiously shakes peg leg*

If it's any consolation, I forgots me patch, yaaar!

Dora and Tina said...

Arrrrr...but ye can draw one on with a nikko pen!

Inexplicable DeVice said...

Why I do declare! I think I've contracted scurvy!

Will that do? Heh heh!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum etc etc...

Tim said...

Aye, that'll do - but I expect yee all to be a little more prepared next year, arrrr!!!

Dinah said...

Arrrr!

Avast! Tis only morning here. Delayed time zones work in me favour yet again. Tho perchance not, this is harrrrrrrd.

Inexplicable DeVice said...

Arrrr! I'll get to revisin' then. First, let's get this old scow sailing east.

Tim said...

Dora - I arrrpologise for not readin' yer comment earliarrrrrr! Aye, aye could draw one on, but I's be lookin' a tad stupid in tha' morning when the blasted thing won't be scrubbing off!

Dinah - Aye, those past times be good news for some, arr. Git yerself a parrot and a tricorner hat and go prod some people with yee cutlass! There be booty to seek!

Inexplicable Device - You be doin' that! I must say, thar was a distinct lack of piratey goodness in my office today; they were a bunch of arrrrrrrr-soles, you could say; I expect more from talk like a pirate day next yearrrrrrr, and you can be my first office-arrrrrrrr!

Inexplicable DeVice said...

Arrrrrrrrrr! I'd be honoured, cap'n.

Look lively, ye bunch o' scurrilous dogs! We've got some plunderin' to do!

Tim said...

Aye, you 'eard him! Plunder ye scalywags, plunder!

I tells ya, there ain't much to plunder in West London. Tis lucky there's only three hours 'a talk like a pirate day left.

...

Oh, sorry: um, ARRRRR!

"Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!"

I forgot to tell you: Finished reading Burning Dreams. It was most enlightening. Margaret W B is skillfull in narrating Pike's life story and displaying his character. So much so that I now fancy him.

Bugger.

Think I'll do a tour of duty as a lieutenant aboard the Enterprise under (heh heh!) Captain Pike, before being promoted to commander and becoming your first office-Arrrrrrr! See you in 260 years!

Miss T said...

I am going to declare that today is our pirate make up day....

missy&chrissy said...

arrrr captain sparky, don't worry about missing most of the "official" TLAP Day...everyday should be talk like a pirate day!

Dinah said...

yarrrrrr...my talk like a pirate day is now past, I've caught up to you people in other zones, and let's just say I made the most of the day.

Tim said...

Inexplicable Device - Hmmm, interesting... I might give it a whirl, after I've read William Shatner's latest blockbuster novel, of course!

If you serve under Pike (heh) you'll have to contend with smiling Spock though - and that might be a tad unnerving!!

Miss Haversham - Make up pirate day? Do I have to wear eyeliner like Cap'n Jack? I'm not sure... but I expect I could carry it off...

Missy and Chrissy - I like the idea of every day being talk like a pirate day, but it did make my voice a little hoarse, so we might have to think about a pirate rest day! There's only so much plunder to pillage, y'know...!

Dinah - Welcome to the future! Glad to hear you've unleashed your inner pirate. I'm now thinking about an Act like a Robot day; in fact, I might go out robot walking around London today. And say "working" quite a lot.

Inexplicable DeVice said...

DOES NOT COMPUTE. ERROR! ERROR!

Tim said...

Someone - quick! Inexplicable Device needs a reboot!!

Inexplicable DeVice said...

DANGER! DANGER! MY HOOKS ARE FLAILING WILDLY!

Tim said...

Watch it! You could 'ave someone's eye out!!
