National “Talk like a pirate” day.

No, seriously, it’s true.  Today is September 19th, which is (apparently) “Talk like a pirate” day.  What’s that?  You don’t know how to talk like a pirate?  I hardly believe you, but don’t worry – there’s help: and (of course)

Oh my, but there’s so much more.  Today’s been extremely productive.  I’ve gone and found a site that goes into (sometimes excruciating) detail about the props from all the old movies and TV series!  Not gonna lie, it’s pretty freakin’ sweet.  There’s photos of all the original props from such series as Lost In Space, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica… and the coolest part is that there’s also photos of the props in their current condition/location.  Okay, well, that’s not really ‘cool’ as much as ‘sad’, as the props are in pretty crappy condition after 30 years… but it’s still interesting to see these iconic movie props out of context (like, sitting in a parking area surrounded by old RV’s.)  Real weird stuff in some cases, I kid you not. Definitely take a minute (or ten) to surf through it.  It’s pretty fascinating.

Arrrrgh, me mateys.  I’m off to actually get some work done.  I wonder if there’s a national “kick like a ninja” day?
