    I'm a Brummie.

    I've always said there was something off about you slightly north of Birmingham types.

    Nope - highly cold adapted Celt with long red hair and beard. Well, grayish red now. Can't get along with hot weather and sunburn under electric light. If it wasn't for the freckles I'd be pale blue in hue !

    Seriously though, if you're thinking of coming over Fife way or thereabouts, PM me. If you're looking for good nosebag in Glasgow, I can get a Weegie epicurean who's a minor legend in his own lunchtime on the job.

    Only in cynical-steal-any-word-to-mean-drugs land would 'nosebag' be considered anything other than food.

    We can fix it. All we need is some double sided sellotape and some empty loo rolls. ;)

    Just make sure you don't queue. Brits hate queuing.

    And motorway service stations are culinary delight.

    Squiggy might also find this visual guide useful :)(Irvine Welsh linked to it on twitter). The Connery-to-Jobs letter is fackin' hilarious.
