The other day I sat at the computer and played an online game. Suddenly I felt an overwhelming urge to be in Scotland. To be frank that was a weird feeling because I had absolutely no idea what triggered this. I only have been to Scotland once and yes, I do want to go there again, and also yes, I still believe I will see Nessie one day (and I'm not talking about one of my favorite lampworkers here now whom I also hope to see in person one day), but why would I be overcome by that feeling at 9.30 in the evening while trying to clean a magic little town of spider webs to relax my mind?
Actually the answer is easy. It was the background music of the game. When thinking about it I had hummed along all the time. I had tried to whistle along with the flute, but Esme gave me one of her glares to remind me how much she hates whistlers (about the same glare Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory gave Leonard when he tried to whistle). So what was it about that music that made me long for Sco...... ooooooh! Suddenly I knew. It reminded me of another song.
This one. Enjoy.
P.S. I really, really want to go to Scotland now.
P.P.S. Yes, I know that is not a "real" quote. Who cares?
P.P.P.S. I'm not that much of a Mark Knopfler fan, but I do love his music in Local Hero and The Princess Bride. Hm.
