Tracey was a Barnes and Noble Prisoner! (VIDEO)

Watch Tracey as she skulks around B&N, looking for HER Scottish Prisoner!

 

Talk Supe's "West Coast Stacey" has HER Scottish Prisoner!



Well, I downloaded Scottish Prisoner to my iphone, but then couldn't take a picture of me reading it, since  the camera's on there as well.
Instead, here's a pic of me today (St. Andrews day and all) wearing a kilt and about to start reading the Scottish Prisoner as soon as I get home from work (and force my family to an early bed). So it's almost as if the Scottish Prisoner is taking a pic of me reading itself.

Patti has HER Scottish Prisoner!


Martha and HER Scottish Prisoner!

So I saw these cute little shots of Donna and Tonya holding their new Scottish Prisoners today...and thought "Hmm...how about posting shots of people with their new books on the blog?!"

Outlander Chat Tonight

Outlander Chat Tonight - 9PM Eastern!  (If you want to come at 8:45, Tracey and I will be discussing the new Breaking Dawn movie!)

Eilean Balnagowan is for Sale!

Let's pool our money and buy this puppy!  We can have authentic Outlander parties in the Highlands whenever we want!  It's only 395,000 pounds!  (That's $618,570 American dollars to you and me.)

Can't you just see it now?  You arrive in Glasgow...take a lovely car ride Northwest where you gaze at the gorgeous landscape.  Then motorboat out to the island...where I'll greet you with a lovely single malt and a tray of bannocks.  Then...you'll retire to the fantastic castle we've all chipped in on and built.  I like to think of it as "Castle de Purgatory".

After you've freshened up in your authentic Scottish room, complete with tartan rug, gorgeous wood paneling and fantastic four poster with beautiful Scottish linens (which would cause Jamie Fraser to say "Christ, ye could get lost in this thing, Sassenach), we'll all meet down in the garden for another cocktail and a laugh about Jamie and Claire's activities in the Commandant's own garden.

Then we'll all have a wonderful Scottish meal prepared by one of the finest chefs in Scotland (I have to find him first) and a few more cocktails...and listen to a fantastic Scots band, complete with kilts, sporrans and little else.  :)

And that's just Day 1!  Who's with me?

Excellent Brave Article











Check out this awesome Brave article sent to me by Julia.  I had no idea Kelly MacDonald was doing the voice for the main character, Bree Princess Merida - or that she was Scottish!  She plays an Irish woman (and does an impeccable accent) on Boardwalk Empire.



Could you listen to the intro from Kevin McKidd four million times a day?  I could.

Off Kilter

So we were in Disney last week...and one night we trotted over to Epcot to meet friends.

And we're walking along...and what should appear on stage right in front of us?  A Scots Canadian band in kilts, called "Off Kilter".  I wish you were all there!  I was taking photos and texting Tracey like a mad-woman!  They were a lot of fun!

The Scottish Prisoner SNEAK PEEK!

According to the Facebook page of HERSELF - the first 19 pages of The Scottish Prisoner are online over at Random House.  Squeee!  Snippets make me giddy with glee!!!

A Scottish Tragedy

Just received this week joke from MOP bud, Hugh from Scotland:


DAVID CAMERON was visiting a Scottish primary school and he visited one of the classes.
They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked Mr.Cameron if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy'.

So the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'.

A little boy stood up and offered: 'If ma best freen, wha lives on a fairm, is playin' in the field an' a tractor rins ower him and kills him, that wid be a 'tragedy.' '

'No', said David - 'that would be an accident.'

A little girl raised her hand: 'If a skale bus kerryin' fufty children drove ower a cliff, killing a'b'dy inside, that wid be a tragedy'

'I'm afraid not', explained David - 'that's what we would call a 'great loss'' .

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. David searched the room.


'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'

Finally, at the back of the room, wee Johnny raised his hand...

In a quiet voice he said:


'If a plane kerryin' you and Mr.Clegg wis struck by a 'freendly fire' missile & blawn tae smithereens, that wid be a tragedy.'

'Fantastic!' exclaimed David. 'That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?'


'Weel,' says wee Johnny 'it his tae be a tragedy, because it certainly widnae be a great loss.....
and it probably widnae be a f***ing accident either!
