I think it was Sharon Miner who first told me about International Talk Like a Pirate Day. What makes this fictitious holiday so much fun is that I share my birthday with it. I always felt sorry for kids who shared their birthday with Christmas...what a jip. The two greatest days in the annual kid calendar reduced to one. But lucky me...instead of just a normal birthday greeting I get "arrr...happy birthday". BTW, Did you figure out how old I am from the last post? Did your birthday ever get cheated by a holiday or forgotten like Molly Ringwald's in Sixteen Candles?
