(NOT to be mistaken for International Talk Like Yoda Day. Man. If I had to be assassinated, I'd choose AskANinja to do the job. I'd probably die laughing before he got near me with the katana. Or whatever.)
Need a pirate name? CLICK. This one's fun, imaginative, and safe for mixed company, regardless of how you define "mixed company". Answer 20 questions (one or two invoke The Muppets; how can that be wrong?) and it spits out your name. Mine's "Iron Bess Kidd". I dare you to share yours.
So if you don't have any other plans, here's a way cool sock pattern. Saving you valuable moments of your life searching for it, the chart/graph is a pdf link in the column on the left-hand side of the page, under the twist collective logo, with the rest of the free patterns.
Skulls and argylle. Just beautiful. I'd make different color choices, but I'll give them this: it definitely photographs well.
So now you have no excuse to NOT celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day! Now go swab something!!!
