I am currently addicted to Tania's NaNoWriMo novel on her blog Brain Trapped in Girl's Body. It has pirates and ninjas. Yesterday a news item broke about a cruise ship being attacked by a band of pirates.
I was tickled and actually beamed with pride.
I half expected to see the character Lucia standing on one of the decks laughing.
Check out T's blog and get prepared to get addicted.
Here is a great picture of Galliano as a pirate to get you in a pirate mood.
Great pirate quote:
Will Turner: You cheated.
Jack Sparrow: [shrugs] Pirate
