Noun Time #1 - Oh The Places I'll Go...Or Want To...Edition 4

Happy Monday Everyone! Yeah I didn't believe my cheerfulness either.

This week I'll be taking us to Scotland:

I have to say that this country is mighty cool. One of my favorite bands (Travis) hails from Scotland, my favorite Doctor (David Tennant), and the source of my email address (Kintyre) are from this country as well. People always ask me the meaning behind my choice for my email. This is derived from a Paul McCartney song called Mull of Kintyre (look it up, it's a great song). Mull of Kintyre is a peninsula in Scotland where Paul owns land. Right after The Beatles broke up, Paul moved his little family to Scotland to get away from the public eye. Years later he wrote a really great album (London Town) with his band Wings, and this song was a huge hit.

Anyway now that you've had your music history lesson for the day, let's move on to the other reasons why I would love to visit this country. The green rolling hills, the gorgeous cliffs, and the castles are a start. I wouldn't mind doing a ghost hunt in some of those bad boys. It'd probably scare the shit out of me, but I'd have a story to tell. I also love to hear them talk. Some have really thick accents, and you're usually like WTF did he just say? But then there are others where you could let them talk all day long.

How gorgeous is that?

Oh how I wish I had buckets full of money....

And yes I kind of half-assed this post. It's Monday, sue me.
