Wait, what, it's still ... October 31? My plan was to vote today!
I said sorry :'(

I felt some stories, despite very good, only linked very tenuously to the 'pirates' subject.
hrm.  weird.  i wonder whose story fit that description . . .
Many, actually - for me, mentioning pirates as a side note doesn't really fit :-\

Oh my gosh guys! Thank you soooooo much for voting for me!

A job well done to all participants! There were some great entries in there!

Wish I could comment more, but I've gotta get back to work before my boss sees me on my iPad. But really everyone, thank you!

EDIT: @Jmack yes, it's my first win.
