A tourist in Scotland.
Currently, Scotland is closed to anyone who is addicted to sunshine or who likes their temperatures without a minus sign in front of them. Nevertheless, there is still much merriment to be had watching my idiot neighbour who has never heard of winter tyres or first gear or revs below 4000 trying to get his car out of the street every morning. His name is Brown. I'm not saying there's a connection but...
In summer, and yes, we do know when it's summer, because the rain is warm and green stuff grows out of the ground, it's a nice place. So I present the public information film by the Scottish Tourist Board, full of facts and interesting details but omitting Inverness and its airport in the interests of public sanity. It also omits Aberdeen airport, placed at Dyce because that was the biggest hole in the ground anyone could find. Just as with golf, Scotland likes to make everything a challenge. Even getting out of the sky alive is a bit hit or miss here. In fact, Aberdeen isn't mentioned at all because the film is in colour, and Aberdeen isn't.
Tonight I browsed YouTube for something to take my mind off the three-foot icicles growing outside my windows and came across Danny Bhoy. A comedian I had never before heard. Well worth looking up.
I recommend starting here.
Tomorrow, back to the gloom of Coagulation reality. I just need one night off.
