Hope you all have a good one.

How many people get presents that are really just to help play Agema games?

Its not the first time I've had books, dvds, novels given just to help me research or gain ideas to play TGOK. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing to admit too Razz

As mentioned bofore the time to worry is not when you buy a book or a DVD on a Country you are playing in Glori or even thinking of playing.

The time to worry is when you start picking holiday locations on this basis and start refering to a Palace as YOURS. Or looking at buying C18 pieces from the Country you have an interest in.

Perhaps to be on the safe side you should only pick positions which are nice to visit for all the family.

Jason, put down that whisky! Just because your character in Game 10 is always sozzled on the stuff doesn't mean you need to follow suit, especially not on your birthday. To celebrate you could either order Iranian or Chinese takeaway lol!

And what, exactly, might "Cullen Skink" be? (Sounds like some sort of stinky stripy animal...) Glad that you enjoyed it (and your birthday) though.

It's a fish soup that comes from Cullen in Moray. Uses smoked haddock, with potato, onions and cream. It's close to a chowder but thicker

I think the Scottish are such a hardy people because if their food and drink doesn't kill them, nothing will.

Sadly (for the purposes of p***-taking), I thought that actually sounded rather tasty...

FRIED HAGGIS !! I thought Haggis was boiled and and was basically a pastie without the pastry or a giant faggot with root veg added.

Still I guess any Nation which thinks frying Mars Bars and even worse frying my Sea Bass in batter is a good idea was bound to try frying faggots at some stage.


PS Like the sound of the Soup.......but I am with the real Louis before Jason try's to market it to the world I think it needs some work on the name. Would American's prefer it if it was sold as "Moray or Speyside Chowder"?

Fried haggis is a bit different to the normal one Very Happy It's the same contents but has something extra in it as a binding so it can be sliced before frying. If you think of it as a Scottish substitute for black pudding in a full cooked breakfast (or in a large one you get a slice of both)?
Mind you these days you can get microwave-able haggis, either a 'whole' one or as a slice.

Fried haggis is as far as I go, still haven't had the fried mars bar or pizza (still convinced the "healthy" deep fried salad is a Highland myth). Sure told you this before but used to live in Stonehaven, officially recognised as the 'home' of the deep fried mars bar...one of the town's two fish and chips claimed it was THE place that first did them...the other fish and chip shop (of better quality) made quite clear it wasn't Wink

On Cullen Skink, sometimes forget how little known it is but you will find it in lots of restaurants, pubs (and of course tins in shops) from Edinburgh up along the east coast and into the northern isles. Sometimes served with oatcakes instead of bread...and in some pubs and restaurants rather than it being served in a bowl, they hollow out a loaf of bread (locally made) and serve the skink in that. The skink doesn't leak out, I think because of its consistency some gets absorbed into the bread but then forms a layer that prevents further absorption. The idea is you have the skink then eat the bread. If any of you ever end up anywhere serving it, I would recommend giving it a try.
I think anyone who suggested renaming it for foreign markets might find a claymore stuck somewhere uncomfortable Wink but you're right, it's not an appealing name. Way I understand it, Skink started out describing a cut of beef and then at some stage was used to describe a soup made of that cut...and then became a generic Scots word for soup. Thing is these days Skink is almost only used in Cullen Skink, I can't recall seeing it being used to described any other sort of soup.
Every now and again someone suggests Cullen Skink should become the Scottish national dish...but it might make Burns Night difficult Wink

You know, I think it might start being served at Scottish banquets in G10...
