Wouldn't you think...?  
What the hell is 'vegetarian haggis'?? I think that bears repeating - vegetarian haggis.


Wouldn't you think that such a thing would more properly be called... 'oatmeal'?

...who is undoubtedly finding this far more amusing than normal with the help of the Robitussin... wheeeeeee...

Okay, I'm imagining the "sausagey" part as some sort of tofu-based veggie thing, but what would you use for the casing? A hollowed-out squash?

hehehe I was thinking the same thing. Who knows. ;) Oh well, if someone is going to be vegetarian, I guess they don't want to be left out of ALL the fun. Then again, wouldn't that be like eating sugar-free candy? Or decaf coffee? ;)

LOL! I guess that's it - they don't want to be left out so they need to use names for things that aren't even close.

It's a traditional Scots delicacy made from the heart, liver, and lungs of a turnip, chopped with oatmeal and stuffed into its stomach lining.

They must be wee tiny haggis *smirk*

...who really wonders about people who would refer to something as 'vegetarian haggis'. Are they the ones who were chosen last for the dodgeball games?...

Except... oatmeal in a what? I mean, what do you put it IN, if... okay, that's it, I'm going home.

Just oatmeal I suppose. Maybe oatmeal in a special bowl that has 'haggis' written on it?

So completely off topic I cant stand it
You dont know me at all, but I read you in a poly community.

My point here is - I want to send you an icon of a redhead woman.

I created it for another red-head who didnt want it. Its not ugly or bad, in fact its quite pretty - no words, but you dont have an email on your user info to just email it to you privately. So - uh - here I am with this (now-I-feel-silly) comment in your journal.

If you would like it - please let me know and give me an email addy to send it to, or I can always host it for a short time and post it in a public post on my journal for you on a particular day of your choice. Either way, Ill provide the icon itself, and the image it came from - the bigger picture so you can see the entire artwork.

I just hate to see something go to waste.

*Oh and veggie haggis sounds nasty*

All my best

Hi, and welcome to my rambling place *smile* I'm always surprised when people read my posts in the poly community ;)

You could send the icon to redstonegroup@yahoo.com if you want - I look forward to seeing it!

Re: So completely off topic I cant stand it

Im on aol, and sending images to yahoo can sometimes mess up the file (especially with the amount I found for you)

I ended up making a public post for you - with a bunch of red head images in them. I had only the one icon - but a TON of lovely red heads saved up for use.

I hope you enjoy them!

I stumbled onto your journal while looking for something else. Hi!

I lived in London a couple of years back, and actually have prepared and eaten both standard and vegetarian haggis. For what it's worth, here's my review of the experience.

And you're right, by the way--it's pretty much oatmeal and barley with vegetables and meaty spices thrown in.
