You know you're in Canada...

...when there is a man in a kilt, line dancing!

I went to an excellent--if slightly strange--Burn's Supper last night. I love haggis, but I only got one teeny tiny icecream scoop serving, however it was supplimented by a MASSIVE slice of beef.

Very nice if you like food :)

The pipe-band was awesome. It always makes me feel like a bit of a traitor when my heart starts to pound to the beat of the drum and the bagpipes make me want to rise up and slaughter the English. Being English myself, I tend to restrain myself and keep my lips firmly closed over 'Flower of Scotland'.

It was good fun. But the line dancing in kilts was weird.

ROFLMAO!!! Well, as you're dyed in the wool English, I have to admit to being second-generation Cdn from Scotland and I found your post hilarious. Where did you find Robbie Burn's supper in Winnipeg? I want to go next year! The bagpipes and drums thrill my blood, and the most exciting thing I've ever seen has been the view from Edinburgh Castle. In fact, if dh gets a chance someday at a UK exchange to Scotland we're going to grab it asap! Line dancing in kilts - are you sure they weren't doing the Scottish Fling? :)

LOL--no flings. After living there for so long I know a fling when I see one. Line dancing was pretty intriguing.

I'm grinning. It sounds like it was a sight to see!

Cool! I wish there were fun things like that here!

Excellent - did you address the haggis or get to respond on behalf of the ladies???? We had miniture individual haggis (or is that haggi?) for a starter yesterday, as per usual one ds loved and the other hated!!

Toni Anderson said...

It was addressed and responded to, as tradition required. They did a very good interpretation considering :) LOL @ kids. At least one of them liked it!!

Haggis always makes me think of Beano comics for some reason ....

Love the photo :) Must have been mighty cold in kilts that night, Toni -- did dh wear his?

Toni Anderson said...

DH did not wear his kilt b/c it was SO cold. OMG. I swear it was the coldest I'd felt even though it was only in the minus thirties. It was--terribly--cold and I was thinking about the homeless and hoping they had shelter.

I know what are kilts but what is line dancing?
