[The Life of Shaun #300] Haggis & Kilts

Just a quick note -- I am off to Britain's second nation tomorrow, a nation whose national dish is pig intestines stuffed with sheep's heart, liver and lungs, and the men wear skirts: Scotland.

After two or three thwarted trips across my Northern border, I am finally, fingers crossed, going to make it.  I have the 17.00 train from King's Cross and a happy, four-hour ride in which I will need to pay attention to no one but Jim Halpert, Bodie and Jack Shephard.  I may just stay on the train and ride it back and (Firth of) forth (da dum dum) a few times.

Nah, my lovely Polish friend who lives there (he was attracted by the haute cuisine) has quite an evening planned for me, so my liver and I are ready for it.

Looking very forward to a pre-break to my American extravaganza* from 19 Dec - 04 Jan.  That one's gonna be a doozey.  2008's going out with a bang**.

Have a great weekend all,

*Vegas/SF people, get in touch with me so we can make plans!

**And 2009 will be starting with a trip to Middlesbrough.  I?  Know how to travel.
