Was that intro stereotypical enough for you? *Jamie Wink*
Yes… I was going to call this Blog AB-Outlander…since I am from AB (Alberta) Canada and I thought “That’s creative!” and then I remembered I am Canadian and everyone and their little dog think Canadians say aboot and not about. I don’t hear it but hey…I’m Canadian, I like to drink. Who am I to argue with the world at large? So, AB-OOTlander was born. I’m terribly witty…Or just terrible. You can decide later.
There are dozens – if not tens of lots of recap blogs on the interwebs about Outlander. Hell, I read most of them. Giggling with mirth. Facepalming myself because of the horrible grammar (I should talk), spelling errors or the clear fact the writers haven’t read the books. No, not that you HAVE to read the books to do a recap but sometimes my palm will hit my face with the force of a sparrow hitting my glass pane window because it has a pea sized brain. I keep reading though, why? Because we laugh at other peoples stupidity all the time. Why do you think those epic fail videos on YouTube have so many hits? It’s funny shit that’s why. Oh yeah, I swear. If you don’t like it when I swear. I’m sorry that you find it offensive or you think it makes me sound less intelligent. Personally I find it one of the things that gives me great joy. There are plenty of other places on the interwebs you can find non-swearing folks that won’t make you cringe. So those will be better for you. Plus I’m Canadian, we have potty mouths. If you would like to know the benefits of swearing. Please CLICK HERE.
So this won’t really be one of those Recap blogs, I will be more of an occasional, this is what the Canadian thinks, this is what the Heughliots are saying about what other people are saying or HOLY CRAPOLA WHAT WAS THAT!? I LOVE THIS SHOW- and will talk about everything that happened and YEAH suddenly its become a recap blog. WHO the eff knows?!
In Canada, we are 3 Episodes into the season. Let me tell you what I think about being behind. 2 words. It sucks. We also have commercials. 3 words. It really sucks. Showcase is the network where it airs and fans are very grateful, however, Outlander is an hour long show. In Canada it is 1.5 hours. Yup, I suck at math and I can tell you how many commercials that is.
I mean, thank goodness we created the #OutlanderCANDrinkingGame – Really- the Hashtag is too long cuz when you are playing it turns into #OutlanderCANdrinkigfhksdfh . It doesn’t take too long to get yourself pickled playing this one. Especially when the Scots talk. Even english.Their brogue is so thick, sometimes it sounds like they have marbles in their mouth but then when they speak the Gaelic! Well damn, you get into your cups PDQ!
I happen to think Bob n Doug are Colum n Dougal reincarnated. MacKenzie…McKenzie…the similarities are uncanny. Ok, they aren’t…they pretty much end with the name and that they are brothers. I did make this super creepy bad photoshop that I continually giggle about since I am very easily entertained. *shrug*
No I shouldn’t get out more. Did you know it SNOWED here last week. Yes…I am aware I live in Canada but damn…that’s even early for HERE!
I livetweet from my twitter account every Sunday @heughliots if you want to join me. I start an hour before show time, you know, to rally the troops. 7 pm MST, it sure would be nice if Showcase showed some interest in the Social Media aspect – alas – we will do it for them. Our hashtag, if you didn’t notice is #OutlanderCAN – we have a blast.
I think I’m hilarious(granted looks only get you so far),other people think I am drunk – I assure you ,I’m not…usually. It’s really difficult to drink & tweet & think & search for stuff all at the same time. Even for someone as well rounded as myself. Claire and I have something in common, livers of steel. I just realized, maybe that is why people think I am drunk, because I don’t do all of those things with ease. I tend to make a butt outta myself.
So there you go, This is our little corner of the interwebs, if you want to come hang out in it with us. Please feel free.
