as ye may well know, september 19th [that's today!] is international talk like a pirate day! hope to see you all out there showing some pirate pride to the landlubbers at this hear place of learnin'. to help you out, I'm sending along a list of pirate phrases thanks to the good crew of last year's pirate club.
you can go hear to learn more about the holiday: http://www.talklikeapirate.com/
also, two notes: I may have accidentally told one or two of you that we'll be meeting next week - this is not true. our next meeting will be in two weeks, on tuesday, october 2 in Geen. we'll discuss bake saling [sailing, har har har] and other such important things.
also, thanks to your fantastic first mate, lura [whose birthday it was yesterday, the 18th, hooray!], we have a beautiful new livejournal community which can be found here: http://community.livejournal.com/gouche
thanks to everyone who came out to the meeting tonight! have a very piratical day!
-- your humble scrivener/cartographer/secretary, Rachel
