Can't talk like a pirate, but just wanted to say thumbs-up on the fantastic blog-- a recent discovery for me.

How about an impression of Yoda trying to sound like a pirate?

"Scurvy knave, avast ye! Swab the poopdeck, you will! Then explode your scurvy balls with Force-lightning, I shall!"

How did I forget this? Christ, almighty, now I'll have to be swabbin the deck and jumpin the plank into the salty seas all day, matey.

Not very convincing, is it?

Some back and forth is being had, by the way, inspired by the the black blogger race thing. Over at MsLauren's site and mine. Whatevs,. I grow tired of this conversation, really, that people are bigger than their fucking categories. But it seems that people don't WANT to be bigger than their categories. Yes, I'm black, but I'm more than that. Yes, My coworkers are white, but they are more than that (like, they are also ignorant--but they aer knowledgeable about some things, like confirmations and deer-hunting).

The part of England I live in, everyone talks like a pirate the whole year round. Honestly, it's like living with the sound track from "Treasure Island".

When I first moved here I thought the first local I talked to was putting on a funny voice. Oops! It turned out okay though; he thought my accent was pretty funny too.
