  1. I think just stretching the theme out for another 200 words would have had us all completely fooled.

    Too funny. I love you guys.

  2. haha Shauna… thats too cute. You know ken is also the dutch word for know… how cool. Have I ever told you that I started school in Scotland? We moved there when I was about 5 and lived there for a few years while my dad was working on the north sea oil rigs. When we went back to Australia I was teased non stop at school for my scottish accent… I had it bad and I can still do it sometimes for fun! hehehe. The worst thing is my grandma had a galah and when we went to visit I told the galah to dance, dance cocky dance cocky… it sounds even worse with a scottish accent, my whole family laughed at me… πŸ™‚

  3. hee heeeee that is classic, amanda. didn’t realise you’d lived here, how cool πŸ™‚ hellooo cocky!

    btw people… gareth is feeling a bit over-exposed right now, having made his ghostblogging debut. he’s always said, “i like to play steadman to your oprah”.

    just be assured he’s being tongue in cheek and sympathises with our plight!

  4. Love it – cracked me up – I’ll need to get my Scottish ears on – only 10 days till I head your way. Sooooo excited. Will email you once I’m there and see if we can manage a catch up along with Lainey. Love Z xx

  5. Oh! (I mean, “Och!”) It’s eerie, he sounds just like you!

    Hee. Does G really talk like that?? In my mind, I always picture him sounding (and looking) like Groundskeeper Willie.

  6. I must admit, I do associate the phrase “oh the humanity” with you and you alone. I only found out where it really comes from a couple of weeks ago…

  7. I loved that it was so short, to the point and yet SO FUNNY. I sort of pictured him wearing women’s clothes as he typed and maybe a pair of white gloves. . .

  8. Nice one Vickie πŸ˜‰

    K, that is so funny, Gareth thought the same thing and I had to explain to him last night where it comes fae!

    Marla – he does talk like that sometimes, especially after a few drinks

    M.R. – I knoooow! It’s embarassingly accurate and took him 20 seconds to write. Hehe.

    Dr G says he is going to return to his enigma status now πŸ™‚

  9. I keep coming back to this page and reading the entry and laughing uncontrollably. Seriously. It just doesn’t get old. “Oh, the anguish.”

  10. Hi,

    Just wanted to tell you that your book is now available in Sweden, and I ordered it today.

    Thanks for a great blog! You are truly an inspiration.

    Kat, Sweden

  11. That was gorgeous! I used to look after a welsh lady at a rest home and she always talked like that. Old Hannah.

    I have seen Green and Blacks for the first time at the supermarket, is it worth the hype to buy some?

  12. Shauna, do you know that on Amazon, customers who bought your book also bought.. “How to Look Good Naked” (I love him, your customers have good taste) and ‘How to be a Skinny Bitch’ (I wonder if they know what they are in for??). Also some Indian cookbook. I think I’ve discovered a new hobby – the ‘what else did they buy?’ game.

  13. Hey Shauna!

    Merry Christmas! Congratulations so much on the book – what a long time since Canberra bloggers night. πŸ™‚

    I wish you every success, and I can’t wait to read your book.

    x Amy

  14. What a cack. This post had me scratching my head at first…what the dickens does ken mean? Then I followed the link and found what ken meant, and laughed my head off in the process (“D’ye ken Filthy Fred?”) and then went back to Dr G’s post and laughed my head off at that…Brilliant…
