Reminds me of Hostel somehow. I couldn't resist watching the film (not sure if I watched the sequel). It made me feel really sick. :shock: Somehow nothing shocked me when I was little, but now it does!

To become a British citizen, I would have to apply for naturalisation and take the Life in the UK test, which is multiple choice and based on a particular handbook. That's all, really, except you have to then go to the ceremony and swear an oath to make it official.

Today I am also listening to the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

This is called "Red Scorpion" apparently. I have absolutely no idea what it is about apart from the torturing bit.

It doesn't sound all too bad, but it's probably just a pain to do more than anything else. It would be great to become British but specialise in a particular nationality. Like Scottish. :twisted: You get to chase haggis backwards round mountains all day. :D

Today I should go for a shower, but can't be bothered. Will get up a few hours before I am due to start work tomorrow and have one then.

I bet the haggis bit is in the test, eh? :P Mark said one of his colleagues had never even heard of haggis till this week! I was shocked.

Getting Scottish citizenship is harder because you need other language requirements too.

Today I realised that the knitting group I wanted to join isn't as close to work as I thought! In fact, it is quite far and I would have to take the bus.

He has never heard of haggis before? Where has he been? I'm almost tempted to send you down a haggis so Mark can present him with it. I think you would pick up the language pretty quickly if we handed you a Scottish dictionary. :lol: And liking Irn-Bru is definitely a requirement. ;)

Today I am having a "mud-fight" with two friends on Facebook. :P

When I was in Edinburgh this year I had Irn-Bru just because you had mentioned it sometime. I hated it. :P Sorry about that. But I do love haggis! I miss it. There will be some here in the supermarkets again come Burns night.

Today I went into town, was given a free drink they were giving out in the city, and had fish and chips that I hope will agree with me. Even the small portion that I chose is massive. :shock:

I remember you saying that you didn't like it. :lol: I have a bottle in the cupboard but I don't often drink fizzy drinks and Irn Bru is so unbelievably gassy. I can't wait to have haggis again. :D It is sold everywhere here, naturally. I love it, but think that it should only be eaten on Burns' Night. :)

I could kill for some chips. :D There is a chip shop a few doors down from my work so a lot of people often come in with them. A couple of people even gave me some. :D

Today there is a new thread - as this one is well over the post limit and I didn't even realise.

Mods, please lock. :)
