Made-up holiday

Today be "International Talk Like a Pirate Day." Me pirate name be
My pirate name is:
Iron Mary Flint
A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Seriously, I love this kind of totally fake celebration. No Hallmark cards, no Nutrasweet sentimentality, just lots of excuses for being silly. There is, for example, an Austin band playing tonight called "The Jolly Garogers." They play heavy metal in pirate costumes. Is this a great country or what?
