To the Scottish Forest and Back~Twice

Having watched it in the theatre twice in the past 24 hours--and that being the most I've gone to the movies in the past year--I would be remiss if I didn't comment on Brave.  Did you see it?  If you haven't, I don't want to give away the story, so my Thoughts below will likely not make sense.  I apologize.  

Without regard for order of importance, here are Thoughts: 
  • Merida's hair is irresistible 
  • As are Merida's mischievous little brothers.  Furthermore, I envy their capacity for eating cookies
  • Disney is to be applauded for allowing Merida and her brothers to have both of their parents around for the duration of the story
  • Is it too late for me to become Scottish, or at least learn to speak with a Scottish accent on command?  I tried practicing during the movie, but that didn't go over well with my friend in the next seat
  • Yes, I will go live in Edinburgh, but only if you make it possible and only if you allow me regular visits to the Highlands
  • Haggis is good for you, as long as it's from pastured sheep--but I'm speaking theoretically
  • A photo would have made this post infinitely better, but I don't know how to copy one without being a copyright breaker
Good night!
