I must not think about Whirlochre in a kilt.

I must not ...

It's no good. I'm going to have to have a cold shower.

JaneyV said...

Have lovely time!

Those are legs that were destined for a plaid mini-skirt. Interesting choice of footwear.

Kiersten said...

Good heavens, that's more black-and-white man-thigh than I ever wanted to see.

Scotland, eh? I'm jealous. As usual.

Robin S. said...

Oh, baby. Maybe you could post a pic of you in a kilt - you know, from the waist down. with the pink socks.

How about it? Please?

Whirlochre said...

I have a tartan camping blanket....and may oblige some time in the future (if drunk).

As for you, FH, you fetish fiend — can't you think of me without wearing a kilt?

Robin S. said...

You could drink tonight. It could happen.

I wanna see those knees. With a plaid trimmin' just above.

writtenwyrdd said...

MINI KILTAGE!!!!???? Holy crap! My eyes!

Seriously, that guy has some nice legs, but so not right for a mini kilt.

I don't know if it's a fetish or not, Whirl, but I always think of you in those fuzzy toe socks.

Mary said...

Have a bonnie time!

freddie said...

Oh, but a kilt would be so cute.

freddie said...

But a kilt would be so cute.

Whirlochre said...

Before I take my socks and tartan to the studio, what's the current vogue on kilt length?

fairyhedgehog said...

This is the right length for a kilt. (Warning: Not Safe For Work.)

fairyhedgehog said...

My comment wouldn't post. Maybe it's karma because it was NSFW.

Whirlochre said...

I'm assuming you mean the guy on the right — otherwise I'm standing on a box.

Robin S. said...

I don't know about the correct length, but my own personal preference for Whirl Kilt Length is at minimum three inches above the knee.

Welcome home! And by the way, you were in my writing exercise.

Robin S. said...

Hey. I just looked. I KNEW they went commando. I just knew it.

Damn. I'm signing JB up for another golf trip in Scotland.
The sooner the better.

Whirlochre said...

Hey Robin — looks like I missed a corker over at EEs.

writtenwyrdd said...

Talked to a guy in the Black Watch once (I think that's the group) who was training at a US military base where I was stationed. Got a few amusing anecdotes about how, when they all drop down in the field (to shoot from prone position) they would sometimes flip up their kilts to show bare buttocks. Can't recall the reason, but there was also the insult action from turning butt toward enemies and everybody showing their butts, too.

Could have been bogus war stories, but knowing men's senses of humor (especially those in the military)I'm inclined to believe it, lol.

Mary said...

This season, kilt lengths are two inches above the knobbly knee.

Whirlochre said...

Mary — phew.

Robin S. said...

Knobbly knees. Well.......

McKoala said...

Real men go commando.

I'm just saying, Whirl.

writtenwyrdd said...

I love that term commando. It's so...manly.

Kiersten said...

Well, all this discussion of kilts--are you or are you not going to post any Scotland pictures?

And did you or did you not have a kilter time? (Okay, that was a stretch for killer, even I'll admit that.)

Whirlochre said...

Commandoes are, indeed, manly. The way they slither along on their chests gripping all manner of Fuck Off weaponry between their teeth never ceases to amaze me.

As for Scotland posts, I do have the odd photo, but I'm also up for some mock kilt non-buttockular shenanigans and a resume of my current WIP status — not to mention singing in the shower (if only to amuse Fairyhedgehog)— so matters purely ecossetastic may have to remain on hold like the cheeks of many a piper during a snap gale at the Edinburgh Tattoo...

Kiersten said...

I think I understood about a quarter of that one.

I'm guessing that's a no on the pictures. But as long as you're chugging away on the WIP, I won't complain.

Much.

Okay, let me complain just a little tiny bit. I always wanted to do study abroad in the UK, so I could see England and Scotland and Ireland.

And I didn't get to do it.

And I'm a little bitter.

And a touch jealous.

Probably you had better post a voice clip soon to make up for it, I think.

Whirlochre said...

OK, Kiersten, I'll add a voice clip to my list of Things That Are On Their Way...

Robin S. said...

Voice clips of singing in the shower...verrrry nice.


An actual picture of Whirl, just above the knee with a shot'a kiltesque fabrique and the pink stripy socks to boot (showin' plenty'a Whirl calf in between, mind you)...priceless.

Whirlochre said...

It shall be done, O Southern One — I just have to assemble the materials. And go pluck myself.

fairyhedgehog said...

Somehow "Singing in the Shower" doesn't have the same ring to it as "Singing in the Rain".

I shan't comment on the potential kilt-wearing photo. I don't think my heart could stand the strain. I'm puzzled by the plucking though. This is clearly some arcane Scottish ritual that I know nothing about.

Whirlochre said...

Think unruly sporran.

For temporary Scotland photos, scroll down to the depths...

Robin S. said...

No pluckin', please. I like manly hair.

Whirlochre said...

Groan...

writtenwyrdd said...

Funny, leg hair isn't what I'm thinking at the mention of "unruly sporran".

In the interest of truth in advertising, no plucking, please. Nothing wrong with a little bit of hair.

fairyhedgehog said...

You're it.

Kiersten said...

The first picture was absolutely lovely.

The second made me laugh, and really made me wonder what kind of facial expression accompanied that pose.

You're a good sport.

Whirlochre said...

I'm a moron.

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh my word, the knees. Quick someone, fetch the smelling salts befor

Kiersten said...

You're adorable.

Kiersten said...

I've just now realized that perhaps adorable is not something any forty-something year-old man ever aspires to...

Ummm...how about...you're terribly suave? Debonair? You're the epitome of masculinity? The dictionary definition of Awesome simply has your picture?

Whirlochre said...

Any of these will do until my limbs drop off.

Mary said...

Housteads is a stone's throw from Thistletonthwaite Castle! Had you left your card by the duckpond, the 99-year-old butler would have made you tea.

Robin S. said...

Hell-o. Mmmm Mmmmm Gooood.

Damn. I love those knees and I love that hair of yours. The pose ain't bad either.

Adorable isn't exactly the word I came up with, when I was coming up with words...(my word is more descriptive. Sorry K girl.).

Robin S. said...

But I still want a kilt (or a skirt) pic with the socks, please.

Call it our early Christmas present.

McKoala said...

Hope that's all that drops off.

Wellies. And...is that...can it be...a cagoule?

Oh Whirl. Looks like the pink socks were a fashion high point.

Whirlochre said...

Hoorah! The tartan marsupial returns!

It's actually a very natty fleece-cum-waterproof. I hate cagoules. But you're right, though — not exactly the supersonic fashion zenith that is...the socks.

As for Thistletonthwaite — I have a wooden duck call thingy which I shall sound next time I'm up.

As for knees, let's just say I have a treat of knobbliness waiting in the wings for some time before Christmas...

Robin S. said...

treat of knobbliness, huh?

Hmmmm. That one's so very open to interpretation.

Robin S. said...

Just stopped back in to look at them legs.

fairyhedgehog said...

Robin, you're worse than I am!

Robin S. said...

Heh. Hey girl, looks like we both have male knee fetishes. Oh yeah.

fairyhedgehog said...

It's not so much the knees as I can't resist men in skirts. Or kilts, robes, togas; anything that has a good swirl to it.

Whirlochre said...

Ok, so that's kilt, knees and novelty stage cape.

I'll stick up a photo as soon as I've assembled the necessary kit...

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh God! The Novelty Stage CapeTM! I don't think my heart can stand the strain.

Robin S. said...

Well, for God's sake (or really, for my sake and for FH's sake, take a picture of those cute knees and those gorgeously hairy legs of yours and post them babies. Wearing a kilt. Or a plaid blankie that LOOKS like a kilt, held just-so over your kneees. High up over your knees. With the pink socks.

Thank you.
