What's tatties, Precious?

That lake looks like a very peaceful place (and very cold).
I had to read the sentence three times before I could understand it with the Scottish accent, hahaha.

I'm just offended by the sight of potatoes, yuck!

Love your tally. That was the funniest video I've seen . Can you imagine being trapped inside a voice activated elevator ? The American accent was too funny

Melissa Sugar said...

Not sure my last comment went through, I'm not good at commenting on my phone. Funniest video ever, especially the American accent. Can you imagine being trapped on a voice activated elevator with a Scottish accent . Funny! Love your tallies.

Well, from one Scots lass to another I just had my tatties for T. Nice theme. Might steal it sometime- would be a lot simpler than what I've tried on Celtic/Roman Britain (my WIP sequel to my historical ending at Mons Graupius/ aka Bennachie - Aberdeenshire)

Oh, hell! I'm still reeling over the elevator scene! You are a comic genius:)

Love that picture. Looks like Knock Castle's seen better days.

I learnt hypnosis in Dumfries, the course included meals so I've eaten a lot of tatties! I loved being hypnotised by all the soft Scottish voices, but they ( the other 7 participants) thought my Irish voice was the last thing in soothing accents.....

The video was hysterical! Fun takes on the tatties, and the tallies!

I heart me some 'taters, boy. Roasted, baked, mashed - I don't discriminate.

Haha! Never heard them called tatties. That's cute, actually. I'm a big fan of Peruvian food precisely because they use a ton of potatoes.
