A cunning plan....

As cunning as a fox what used to be Professor of Cunning at [Cambridge (for the sake of personal pride) ] University but has moved on and is now working for the U.N. at the High Commission of International Cunning Planning.

Hehehe you non-scottish people don't understand our lingo

Clipe means a grass ie. you told on her

Well, I'm pretty much scottish, but I don't have freckles or red hair... I have long fair hair :confused:

Anyway, all you people should come up to Scotland next year - it's actually a really cool place

Literally

I love Scotland really, but then I like walking and mountaineering. Just not the midges!

With any luck (or not) you might have an American accent, having gone to an International School In Denmark, all the people at my school had such American accents, they were funny. And they couldn't understand me sometimes And they would laugh everytime I said "aye"

I know it's been aaages! (see post about msn )

Yeah, I was gonna phone Iris last week, but then Sunday was too busy and I didn't get chance.. but sometime in the future I'm sure.

No didnt get to fix msn, i just kinda of disappeared for a while but dunno what i was doing... certainly not working...lol and got my mock exams back and just got a big chock becoz wanst expecting such good grades: i met all cambridge conditions and even higher :confused: and then my term grade was even higher :confused: this is absurd i didnt do anything... i think it's just coz my teachers know i have the potential so they all put me stupidly high grades, even though i didnt deserve them, coz they probably thought it would motivate me... but did absolutely the opposite i have no motivation to work coz got wat i wanted... arg... also why do all my teachers think i work like hell? my head teacher told me to take a break or else i risked to "over heat" :confused:
and no i didnt talk to Pete but his emails are really... hmmm... interesting...

As long as you're accent isn't as hard to listen to as Burns is to read....: :rolleyes:

Wee sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,
Wi' murd'ring pattle!

Well for the moemtn my accent is undetermined: some think i sound ustralian, while others think of me as a brtisih or american! hehe but unfortunately i pick up accent very easly and since i'm gonna be workign in california next summer i will sound american in october! arg :rolleyes: ... hate american accent, wanna sound british
Talking about not understanding accents, i made a fool of myself when i was at Dwonign coz at dinner i sat enxt to those 2 girls and one of them was irish and i could understand a word of what she was saying... and of course she asked me a question and didnt get it so asked her to repeat twice before admitting to her that i couldnt understand her it was so embarrasing and they both laughed a lot! then the third girl was traducing everyhting for me
How's Irsi btw? didnt talk to her since msn either... and how are u ? (*oups realised she forgot to ask*)
