A Pirate’s Life is the Life for Me

So I’m not sure how many of you were aware of this, but today is “International Talk Like a Pirate Day“. And you all know how I feel about holidays!

Yes I LOVE THEM. All of them! So of course I had to participate. I mean could I have really let this one pass by?

So of course did.

free stuff

A few years ago a group of us dressed up as pirates, so I still had my awesome costume. I put it on and sauntered over to the store, trying to be as Anne Bonny as I could.

hot pretty sexy

When I got there, I told the lady “Arr, I be commandeering this shop!”

And she gave me my doughnuts.

VideoGames

This is very sad, but true. I am extremely inept when it comes to most video games. Growing up, my parents wouldn’t buy us our own systems, we had to save up our own money. But I didn’t have an allowance and trying to save money from my birthday and Christmas when the two are like six months apart was too much for me. I spent it instead on books, movies, and barbies.

So even though I grew up with a ton of guy friends who were all gamers, I suck. I mean Tetris I am amazing at, but that’s it. Halo or any other shooting game, I suck as my vision always gets knocked around and I can’t see what I’m aiming at. Like my head gets pointed up at the sky or down at the floor and I can’t get it into its right position. Any racing game I crash and die. My ex-boyfriend and were playing Lego Pirates of the Caribbean and I was actually pretty good as Will Turner.

So anyways, since I know I will suck and lose I just press random buttons and hope for the best. And you know it sometimes isn’t all bad. Like this one time I was playing  an X-Men game ands was Mystique and I kept beating all my friends, because I would press random buttons and she would kick and shoot her gun like at the same time. It was pretty sweet.
