Ten things I love about Scotland/living in Scotland/being a Scot (in no particular order):
1) George W Bush came here especially so that I could laugh at him falling off of his bicycle at Gleneagles and compound people's belief that he's a raging idiot.
2) Haggis (vegetarian or traditional) can be bought in any butcher shop, chip shop or supermarket at any time of year.
3) We'll never have a Tory administration.
4) From a certain place on Bread Street, Edinburgh Castle looks just like The Emerald City. Not so spooky when you consider that not far from that spot on Bread Street, a guy called George Gibson was born. He emigrated to the USA in 1930 and ended up working on The Wizard Of Oz, painting the Emerald City for MGM.
5) Gay men call each other hen. Women call each other hen. Men call each other pal. It's all terribly friendly.
6) Cicero grew up here. No, not the philosopher, the singer.
7) You can hear Americans saying Edinburrow. Trust me, it's hilarious. Imagine if I went to Washington DC and called it Wooshingtune?
8) You don't have to travel far for the world's largest arts/theatre festival.
9) The Loch Ness Monster is only a car drive away.
10) Addiction to tablet doesn't make you a junkie.
