A pirate’s life for me!

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

I ran across this cute link on someone else’s blog, and since pirates are second in popularity only to monkeys in my house (and not necessarily mutually exclusive, either!), I had to check it out.  I invite everyone else to find his/her true inner pirate as well!

My pirate name is:

Captain Bess Bonney

Even though there’s no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you’re the one in charge. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate’s life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

Follow this link to fidius.org’s What’s My Pirate Name?

I can’t find any reference to “Bess Bonney” as a real or fictional female pirate, but there was an “Anne Bonny” who was a real “pirate of the Caribbean” in the 1700’s.  Perhaps I can become a Connecticut River pirate and patrol the southern border of Monkeymont!
