I am not really sure what I mean by that title but let’s just go with it.
I’m in Scotland! This trip has a lot of angles to it meaning there is mostly business but if you think I will waste a trip to a place so notorious with lore, spooks and spectrums not to mention a monster in the lake (Lake Loch Ness) right outside my window, you’re crazy. I am bring you with me every step of the way here so pay attention to Tumblr and my notifications because you will be inundated with posts from now through the 31st with so much spookiness. That is a guarantee.
One thing I need to figure out is how to find a power converter for the Mac so in the meantime the main website might not be updated properly so just hang loose on the blog format until then. I thought I brought the right ones but some are European and not the UK versions for the conversions. This is how I typically pack so there is no wonder why I am not married yet. In fact, I am pretty sure I packed three pairs on boxers and twelve t-shirts. Thank goodness this hotel has laundry service each morning.
So, I have some plans to take advantage of my presence in Scotland DURING the 2017 Halloween Hell Show. I am going to some scary/haunted castles and that is certain. The second half of my trip will be in a haunted inn which is said to be one of the most sought after destinations for people like me and is rumored to have driven a few people mad with fright. I would let you know the rest but I will be keeping that for a surprise throughout the week.
I am keeping the GoPro for the main video source and yes, it will be much less annoying than the coverage of the Aokigahara haunted Japanese forest because now I have a STICK! Well, it’s like a mounted handle so I will not swipe over the microphone and you can hear solid audio instead of “SHSDFGHJSKOUWYEGUTGJKLH”. For a lot of shorts and quick posts just check out the Veggiemacabre Tumblr. I really want to bring you with me on this trip so the best way I can is multiple ways. You understand.
I do have some work to do here and that means lots of golf. I guess it’s the destination or something for golfers or so they tell me. I mean, the sport was invented here some 4,000 years ago. They invented an outside sport where the weather is windy, cold and rainy most of the year. Got it. I have to do this for some of the trip but my American friends shouldn’t mind too much because by the time I get off the courses it will be barely the afternoon back home. I still have plenty of time for the spooky stuff.
After today I found out I’m not too good. In fact, I am pretty humbled by this game here in Scotland. Hitting a drive into a 45 mile per hour wind can really take your ego down a notch. In fact, if you even think about hitting the ball slightly outside of the green, forget it. It’s gone. Fairies already took it underground to build a weird Swede-style house. To look for it means the group behind you gets ill and your caddy thinks you suck even worse. Honestly, it’s a stress that makes one question what the fuck is wrong with people who can afford this silly game. You can hit a perfect shot on one hole and then slightly tilt your neck on the next and you hit like complete shit. I can’t say I hate it but if given the choice, I would rather be a competitive line-dancer doing “The Shimmy Slide” for ever.
I hope you can read my sarcasm.
So, the internet is total shit here. It might be the time of the evening I am writing this but even Tumblr said it is “crappy internet”. Honestly, the millennials who run Tumblr are amazing. Please never grow up to be old and cranky like the rest of us.
So, I will try my best with the Halloween Hell Show shenanigans for the next 10 days but trust me, October will be the best one yet and we will have a blast. That I know!
Speak to me, Egor.
