Outlander Chat Tonight

Outlander chat tonight y'all! 9PM Eastern. See you then!!

Pixar's "BRAVE"

Feast your eyes on the newly unveiled artwork from Pixar's upcoming animated feature, "Brave".   I would not have known about this had it not been for an email from MOP friend, Sara, who I have been praising the better part of the day.   LOOK at this picture!  I can't take my eyes off it!!!

I am feeling a little "Meh" when I see that Reese Witherspoon is playing the lead character and can only hope girlfriend is brushing up on her Scots as I type.  COMMA HOWEVER - Kevin McKidd is doing a lead is Billy Connelly who has a tremendous Glasgow accent and will be playing a character named - wait for it - KING FERGUS.

Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill

Just had to point out that the Arnold Palmer Invitational was just won by the first European - ever.  And where was that European from?  That would be Scotland.  Born in Glasgow - raised in Kirkintilloch.  OK - so he's largely US-based now...but guess what is name is?

Martin LAIRD!!  You canna MAKE this stuff UP! 

Congratulations to Martin Laird, y'all.  God bless the Scots!

Lassies and Lads...I give you...My Outlander Purgatory friend Stephanie's new Outlander tattoo.  (She couldn't fit the "s" in "prest"  but it's all good because the translation is still the same!)

My Outlander Purgatory CALENDAR

Great news!  We now have a calendar that we'll be using to show upcoming Scottish events - worldwide!

And the best part is that all of YOU can update it!

Whenever you hear of a Scottish event happening in your area - or any area - just click the calendar tab to add the event.

Once there, click the little plus sign in the upper right corner of any given day.  It's that easy!

Know of an event full of Scottish goodness?  What are you waiting for, lass?  Add it to the calendar! 

Hangin' with the Scots - Video

Oh boy.  Tracey and I had a fun night out last night.  We went to Kearny (which is the Scottish capital of New Jersey) to see my friend Hugh (who I haven't seen in 20 years!)  Hugh is visiting from Scotland and was kind enough to humor us on camera.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Just wanted to tell you all Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Tracey and I are half Irish - but as they say, "Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day!"

I am sitting here watching The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara (a St. Patrick's Day tradition) and highly recommend it.  It's full of romance, laughs and beautiful Ireland scenery.  What more could a girl want?

Why Aren't Men Like Jamie Fraser?

OK so I am doing some mindless work at home this morning...which means I'll be listening to Dragonfly in Amber on audio with Davina Porter. (Don't you love it when she says Claire's "yes" in that breathy way? Or "Jaaa-mie?" as a question. Gotta love DP.)

At any rate, I came upon this amusing Thrillionth Page blog post entitled "Why Aren't Men Like Jamie Fraser?" and wanted to share.

Why AREN'T men like Jamie Fraser??? I ask myself that question on a daily basis. Lordddddd do I ask myself. ;)

New Book Commentary Section

Just wanted to let you lads and lassies know I FINALLY cataloged all the posts from when I was reading the series. You can check them out at the My Outlander Book Commentary tab. They are labeled by book - and the posts go in order.

My favorite thing to do is talk about the books - as I'm reading them. That is why I started this blog. So if you weren't around while I was reading the books, go back and take a look. I've been reading them for the past few days and it's amazing how they bring it all back!!

Outlander on General Hospital!

While I'm not complaining... because I think it's fantastic that Herself got some recognition on a major soap... could they not have described it using something a tad more colorful than "really long"??

Witty Claire

SPOILER ALERT: Dinna read unless you have read Dragonfly in Amber.

Just read the horrible scene in Dragonfly where Mary, Claire and Murtaugh are attacked. Jamie just got there by jumping down from a roof... And Claire is all "well well...look who's dropped in". I love how Claire sometimes gets punchy in times of strife. I can't help but giggle, even in the midst of the horrible situation. It's like when Mrs Vallely used to yell at us in the 8th grade when someone got a little snarky - all the while making little jokes during her rant. You knew you shouldn't be laughing...but darnit, you just couldn't help it.

If Bree had been there, (or born yet!) they would have started rhyming for sure. And seeing as it was Dr. Seuss Day at school and my son just got in the car wearing a red and white striped hat he made... I am having a right good giggle at the thought of that.
