It's okay for me, I'm surrounded by them, but must be pretty :( for everyone from anywere else in the world.
I'm sure most of them kill themselves out of shame anyway.
are basically the incrediblest
slightly posh scottish accents on girls are beautiful.
when English people meet Scottish there is now a fifty percent chance they will get along.
Yoo're pure reit thocht, us scottish folk ur amazin'. fa wooldnae fancy us? aam sae glad ah was born a scot.
Make it harder!
My Ulster-Scotch can only take me so far!
It was from that South Park "They took our jobs!" episode.
I can't really talk proper slang Scotch unless I'm back home with the locals, then I just fall back into it...
Now, what episode was that? :D
dinnae ken whut ya bowth fucken gabben!
i love scottish people really, well, some of them.
and her accent is really nice, if that's what you're getting at :)
But, that is a given, as I have lived here all my life.

ah'm fae perth, an ah'm lucky ah didnae pick up oan that wan!
Think the Glaswegian is too ingrained in me to ever change. :)
posh much? :D
You'll resist it. When you moving up to the east coast?
So it wouldn't ever happen, sorry.
Ye have showed courage, and dagnatay. You are a true Highlander (scotch person)
...kinda well-spoken Scottish, none of your "awright ye pure bawbag" Castlemilk stereotype of a Glaswegian accent. I live in the good end of town.
in THAT nice an area of town?
And the Glaswegian gift of a middleclass accent but the ability to turn it on and off depending on what time you are on the bus. :)
my acquisition of English occurred in Buckinghamshire...it remodelled itself when i moved back Northwards.
That said, i DID partially study accent variation at Uni, so i could probably do a mean impression ("haw haw haw" et al)
It is one of my party tricks. At least with English people, and foreigners.
see Scottish Vernacular, Chapter 5, page 6, line 18: "'mon then, ya fuckin' bass!"
"Well she's wrong"
a haven of culture and landscape? I think not
just the Garth Marenghi quotes. My Dad's from the Gorbels, I'm a Celtic fan, we go to Glasgow every year. I have much love for the place. Well, half of it.
the quotation marks should have indicated that. Blame the heat going to my head.
And as much as half? Erk... i only like around 40% of Glasgow
in Carntyne my Granny used to get Irn Bru delivered to her door in glass bottles! Like milk! I thought maybe the Irn Bru factory had the ginger cows chewing girders and spraying out the Bru. Then we went to the factory and this was not in fact true.
Govan, Kinning Park, Ibrox.... in fact, most of the East End, Hope Street, Union Street, Sauchiehall Street (particularly around 11pm or 3am).
Believe me, there's alot to dislike. Alot to like, too...but it's a 60/40 split, methinks
I swoop in and swoop out, we stick to a pretty small district where everyone knows everyone. I've heard some of his tales of 60's gang war fun times and he'd definitely be inclined to agree with you. Easterhouse was always pretty grim though.
"The cabin crew suggested we all go out and club it. I had no option; it was that or one of there B&Bs. I figured it’d be safer on the streets. For the first time ever I saw the Scotch in their natural habitat, and it weren’t pretty. I’d seen them huddling in stations before, being loud but… this time I was surrounded. Everywhere I went it felt like they were watching me; fish-white flesh puckered by the Highland breeze; tight eyes peering out for fresh meat; screechy, booze-soaked voices hollering out for a taxi to take ‘em halfway up the road to the next all-night watering hole. A shatter of glass; a round of applause; a sixteen-year-old mother of three vomiting in an open sewer, bairns looking on, chewing on potato cakes. I ain’t never going back… not never. "
"Look, didnae get me wrong, I’m a big fan of the Scotch people – I love Lulu and if Taggart’s on, I’ll tape it. I was very tired that night and I was pissed off I was in Glasgow. Colleagues of mine have since visited it, during the day, and they say they’ve had a cracking time. I’m sorry. I was wrong. I see that now. My life is yours."
