826 Valencia.

There may be some upstart pirate chain stores, but discriminating pirates demand the finest lard and most glittering booty, which are only available at 826, I assure you.

Hargh!
It is quite strange to see a thread of this nature without the dread pirate shigolch present.
Discriminating buccaneers are few and far in between these days...

VERY amused.
That's exactly what I did!

I really wanted to take pictures, but I wasn't sure it was appropriate & didn't want to be told not to, so I broke the ice by asking the shopkeeper (shop wench?) which pirate hat was "more subtle." At that point, pretty much everyone was amused.

Re: VERY amused.
michael and i were at a used clothing store in philly and michael took a picture of me and we totally got yelled at. i don't think we really looked like a bunch of spies from vogue trying to steal the lasted underground fashions, but whatever.

we were so uncomfortable that we immediately left.

Hey I dont know you but I swing by your journal from time to time.. DO you know if this is Dave Eggers pirate store? Hes the guy that wrote A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering genius and I heard a while ago that he opened a pirate store in CA somewhere.

One and the same. I got a vague sense that there may have been a literary ulterior motive of some sort to the pirate store. But I tried hard to ignore it.

Arrrrr!

Oh, this is fabulous and splendid. Must visit the place when I get ready to go to a pirate festival. (There's practically a Pirate SCA out there; they have Pirate Renfaires at coastal spots all over the country.) Arrrrr! Rum!

The rum when we spill it eats right through the wood
The cook says that's how we can tell that it's good
To save our poor ship we drank all that we could
We're all going to drink rum and die!

We had rum drinks last night, to keep the spirit[s] of the pirate shop alive. I tried to follow cocktail recipes, but the confusing array of rums (spiced, light, brown, dark, Jamaican, coconut, &c.) makes pre-decimal British currency seem straightforward. In the end, rum + juice = yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!
