Muffy VanderPirate and Talk Like a Pirate Day - September 19th

In celebration of International Talk Like A Pirate day, Muffy is wearing her VanderPirate outfit.  Every item in this picture is a thrift shop find.  My "keeper" props are the balsam boat, the metal treasure chest, anything with a skull and crossbones and the mini-sword in the scabbard strapped to Muffy's waist.

As an aside, for those on Facebook, you can choose "Pirate" language for the day.

What does Talking Like a Pirate and Krispy Kreme Donuts have in common?  Well, Fantabulously Frugal has posted this 'splanation.

Krispy Kreme free doughnut

"Stop by your local Krispy Kreme, speak like a pirate, and get rewarded with a free glazed doughnut. No purchase is necessary.
Thankfully Krispy Kreme provided some suggested phrases. They include things like:
  • Ahoy Matey
  • Heave Ho
  • Sea Dog
  • Thar She Blows!
If you are REALLY into this pirate thing, if you DRESS like a pirate (and this means more than an eye patch) you will get a DOZEN FREE DOUGHNUTS.
This offer is only valid on September 19, 2012 at participating locations. You might want to call your local Krispy Kreme ahead of time to verify participation, particularly if you plan on dressing in complete pirate regalia."
Happy Pirateness!
