Neil Tennant is a bit Scottish

#1 Post by Nickname »

EDIT: I thought it was something new but looks like it came from an old Literally. I didn't know that when I posted for the first time.

Your family has Scottish roots,Neil.Can we claim you?. "My brother and my cousin have been doing our family tree. We can get back to the 17thc. in Stirling.Actually,I applied to Stirling University but I didn’t get a place"
What were you going to study?. "History and archaeology. Why I was drawn to archaelogy is one of the things that puzzles me. I’ve still got no interest. The family moved to Edinburgh and then, in the 1870s, Berwick". “My mother’s family was Irish. It often amuses me because I’m often described as typically English but I’m actually a Celt and I’m just doing a good imitation.”

Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

Yes, I remember that issue of Literally when he talked in raptures about Archie Gemmill's goal against Holland.

It was new to me and since I live near Stirling also very interesting. Thanks
If I thought what you’d think I wouldn’t even be here.

Good colour. You want a sprayer to put it on with. It has a nice action.
