Scotland 1, England Didnae

What a week; what an absolutely incredible week (as Gregory would say) to be a Scotland football supporter. We won a game! Away from home! Against a no bad Norwegian side from Norway. And England got beat in Northern Ireland.

So while the going is good (i.e. till the next game in October) can I just say to my (half Scottish) cousins down south… if you’re feeling like the little boy in the joke below, click on these proud navy blue words that are underlined to tap into your lost national heritage. And any time you want to come back over from the Dark Side, you’ll be welcomed with open arms and a big (Glasgow?) kiss. Just don’t bring that pishy cider or Carling that you call alcohol - know what I mean pal?

Hi there, just jumping around the blogs looking for some ideas to improve my blog and landed on yours. I like the way you have laid it out. It has given me some good ideas, thanks. My blog isn’t up to much but I have a really good site. (It helps people achieve their Dreams). Check it out if you get the time :-) Anyway keep up the good work and I’ll try and get back here soon. Have a really good day.

I was going to delete the comment above but decided instead that it's the stupidist piece of spam ever? How can I achieve my dreams if you don't give me a link to click on? Or is the comment genuine but the writer is just stupid? Or is the whole thing incredibly clever and I'm the stupid one for replying and by doing so have unleashed a deadly virus into the heart of my computer? Probably.

This comment has absolutely nothing to do with this post, FYI. But I'm happy that your team won if that counts.

I just returned from a trip and found my name in print in your comment from a week or so ago. If I wasn't already a fan for life I would be now. Plus, I can tell all my friends that this mysterious writer from Scotland mentioned me online. That ought to get the girls here jealous, don't you think? You know how we all love a guy with an accent. And you're in a band, too. I think I get double points for that!

Hey Donna from Texas, Triple Points! He wears a kilt too and goes commando, by the rules!

I got the same thing and deleted it. I wasn't sure if it was a virus trap or not....was it?

Virus trap? Dunno. My computer's still working and I've taken a couple of penicillin so hopefully everything's okay.

Russell - why the deletion? Worried about subconsciously revealing your own admiration of Mr Cumming? Do tell.

Oooh, a kilt! I would say, "Hallelujah, I hit the jackpot!" except I'm too busy trying to erase the mental image of Infocow having the knowledge of what's up (or not up) the kilt.

All I can say is - and forgive the reference to another "newspaper" - enquiring minds want to know!

Thanks for the link to the Tartan Specials cartoon. Made me spill my drink all over my desk and cry laughing. Very funny.

Maybe the Force is strong with InfoCow...
May the Force (and the triple points!) be with you, Donna.

Very much enjoyed the clip - my wee Scottish heart is pure total bursting with pride ( or too much beer,vodka, chips, sausages, pies etc).Have you been doing some solo recording then?

Your blog title reminds me of a classic Scottish joke -

Q - What's the difference between Bing Crosby and Walt Disney?

A - Bing sings ,but Walt Disney!
