I'm sure it's not just me who scans down the new posts, and then has to do a quick double-take after seriously misreading a title. Or do you ever have a little chuckle at some of the conjunctions of titles. Share your momentary bursts of synchronicity and nonsense here.

Charlotte Lennox with Adv. Novel underneath made me look twice if Annie Lennox had joined us :roll: :lol:.
Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!

This was a while back, but for the longest time I thought The Defiant Agents was The Defiant Angels.

...which would be a pretty cool name for a book. Or a rock band.

The Scottish Chefs (instead of Chiefs). :roll:

EDIT: OK, I just noticed Esther said this already. Funny how so many of us read this one wrong!

LOL, Esther & David! Haggis---ewww!!! :shock: I've never had it, but from the description I've heard I don't want any! Have you had it, Esther or David? How about some cock-a-leekie soup? :P (My spelling could be off, but that's what it sounds like; I haven't had that either.) Personally I like Scottish shortbread! Yum!

I've heard one Scotsman say that when the food loses its flavor, "that means it's ready." Hee, hee!

Yes, Joy, I like haggis :D ...mushy peas and neeps & taters... traditional Robbie Burns dinner.
It's rather like spicy oatmeal :wink:

Both very tasty. Shortbread not bad either.
Alarmingly for Scottish Chefs, however, this year's world porridge-making champion and winner of the coveted Golden Spurtle is an American. :shock:

Our local pub serves haggis. It comes in what are clearly slices from a sausage shape with a plastic skin. Nevertheless, deep fried with a couple of fried eggs and some thick crustry bread and about a quarter of a bottle of tomato sauce it is very tasty.
Don't eat the skin though, it may be more hygenic than a sheep's stomach but it plays merry hell with the digestion!

Your description sounds absolutely disgusting.

Exactly, catchpenny! *nodding* I completely agree! Of course, I've always been the most finicky eater in my immediate family & in my large, extended family too. :wink: Although I'm not a vegetarian, I find that I don't really care much for meat these days; I can eat it, but it doesn't always agree with me. As little as I eat (light blackberry yogurt mainly) I'd think I'd lose weight, but no such luck. :roll: Too sedentary, I suppose. Oh, well. (I do like sweets, though, esp. Milky Way bars, so that could work against me. LOL)

Joy :9:

P.S. David, I know what taters are, of course, but I've forgotten what "neeps" are. I guess I'll look it up---or one of you can enlighten me. LOL
