What *does* a Scotsman wear…?

From Mom:

There were still a lot of Scots in town today from the Ireland/Scotland rugby match yesterday. Yesterday there were hundreds of men wearing kilts everywhere we went. Today, we were strolling past a pub and there was a man in a kilt standing in front of it.

And a youngish woman had evidently asked him what a Scotsman DID wear under his kilt, because just as we got even with him, he modestly turned to the side and pulled up his kilt. The young woman squealed, and took his picture with her mobile. :)

Yesterday we went into Waterstone’s and I noticed CAPTAIN’S FURY, 4th in Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series, and in a fit of weakness I looked at the price. The price, inexplicably, was €9.99, so we bought it and I read it today, which is the first time in a Really Long Time that I’ve bought a book and read it immediately. And it was good and I want the next one and to my delight it made me want to go back to writing my own book. I hope my hand is up to it tomorrow!

Ted made a totally wonderful dinner of steak and baked potatoes and corn on the cob and garlic bread, and followed it up with a pineapple upside-down cake which was amazing. *swoons*
