Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Go ye forth and shiver some timbers. Unless: if you’re faced with subway preachers—and boy, do they make me glad that I can walk to work—stop talking like a pirate. Sing show tunes. (Koaloha is my new hero, and Montrealais gets my undying gratitude and a basket of International Love Points for bringing the story to my attention.)

Okay, it’s too beautiful a day to remain in front of the computer. Signing off now.
