oh my gosh, my scottish ex-colleague used to say 'get it up ye' and 'pished'. In regards to 'pished' I always thought that was a speech imperdiment he had with that word :-)

I am completely befuddled.

Funny, though.

Ghosty said...

... eh? *looks confused*

However, I do want a t-shirt that says 'fit lyk min?' on it. And I don't even know what it means! haha

I though I spoke English. Apparently I don't. Well, at least not well enough to understand everything in this post.

As a revenge, you'll have to go to southern France and practise the accent. :D

Princesse, I may have read one too many Irvine Welsh novel, because I have never been to Scotland, and I think I understand your post.

I havent decided if this is good or bad yet.

Sniggering all to myself in front of the laptop at "Aufurfuksake".
Before you leave Scoatland fir good, git yersel tae Waterstones in town. And buy "The Eejits". It's a Scots translation of "The Twits". I bought it when I was home and every page has me in stitches. :)

Princesse Ecossaise said...
