Hey Angels we’re here (finally) with the transcript from the Fake Scotsmen Twitter Chat that took place last Saturday Night. It was a lot of fun and we all got to hang out with our favourite book Scotsmen. So here’s how to navigate: The @ in the corner is the beginning of a new conversation and all @ names underneath are the answers to that conversation.
@moore_zachary is Zachary Moore
@connelly_martin is Martin Connelly
@AidenMacRae is Aiden MacRae
And everyone else are the twitter guests who had a blast fooling around.
If anything doesn’t make sense, tweet me, email me or leave it in the comments below.

And the fun began…..
@moore_zachary Y'all have really hot accents, but what accents do
YOU GUYS find adorable?
@connelly_martin: I fancy an American accent myself. Especially east
coast tough guy. What's that--Brooklyn, aye?
@AidenMacRae: American, of course. French is none sae bad, either.
'Tis really more the lass, though.
@moore_zachary: Like Martin, I fancy American accents, too. (M also
secretly loves an Edinburgh accent.)
@connelly_martin: Oh, that's how it is, aye? We embarrass each other?

@c_cass189: I could use
a massage right now. :)
@RachelllRaeee3h: Tuning in and out of the #fakescotsmen chat as I study for my quiz that's due today! (Why

@tnmedicgirl: I should be studying for my quiz Monday but this was
more fun :)
@RachelllRaeee: I wish I didn't have to, but my test/quiz is due TONIGHT. And I have to study. And video record it. ):

room! Me: I'm reading. Schmiz it!
@connelly_martin: I found
pics online of where @moore_zachary & I live in Glasgow. Anyone fancy seeing them?
This, of course, was met by a chorus of ‘yes’s.
@connelly_martin: Here's the
famous Shakespeare Street, where the playwright was once beaten half to death
for 2 farthings:
@moore_zachary: Nice one. Tragic, that.
@AidenMacRae: Get beaten near tae death, then they name a street
@Rpatzz: Question: favorite mode of transportation?
@connelly_martin: Favourite mode of transport: convertible Jaguar. At least, I think it
WOULD be, should I have the chance.
@AidenMacRae: Aye, but I could not quite determine how to reply
there, so am using the hashtag instead. Wasna like this 300 yrs ago!
@makesmeworse12 *high 5!*
@AidenMacRae: *high fives back*
@tnmedicgirl: that would be perfect! Hawaii is on my list
@AidenMacRae: I dinna think I'd like Lindsey in her bathing suit
with all those other men at the beach.
@moore_zachary: I'm long past jealousy with Aura, cos of you-know-who.
@AidenMacRae: Right. I miss that bloke, truth be told. Shouldn't he
make an appearance? ;)
@tnmedicgirl: Logan!!!! Hi!!!! Now the party is complete
@makesmeworse12: YAY, you're here!
@AidenMacRaeLovely to see ye, mate! How's the other side?
@connelly_martin: Sigh...American words are adorable.
@AidenMacRae: Aye, back to your heavenly bliss and all that. ;)
@vatrask: Boys, what is your favourite place in the world?
@connelly_martin: Favourite place in the world = Glasgow.
@moore_zachary: Glasgow's my favourite place mostly cos of the people.
Friendly, honest, real. And very, very funny.
: Favorite place = Eilean Donan Castle. My home. With Lindsey. All of the above.
@clairehuggy: I'm not
surprised. It's amazing. Sorry about the mess the #SHADEboys left it in when they visited
@AidenMacRae: I've never
been, but would love to!
@moore_zachary: It is
wonderful--you should come and visit! Forget Edinburgh & Loch Ness. ;)
@The_Poupette: Ohh Highlands

@tnmedicgirl: sure lmao
@connelly_martin: A prettier pic, also of Maryhil. It's NO SAE BAD as they say! (Milngavians, GTF.)
@connelly_martin: I try tae
avoid romantic strolls where a church can see me. VERY difficult in Glasgow
@moore_zachary: Perhaps you
should explain "Milngavians, GTF." One bit at a time.
@connelly_martin: And GTF is
Twitter-safe abbreviation for "Get tae fuck!" which is like, I think,
"Fuck off!" in American?
@moore_zachary: Correct. I'm
sure they're all grateful for this Scots lesson and will use GTF frequently in
@connelly_martin: They should!
@vatrask: I'm going to use that now
@connelly_martin: Hogmanay a

@GabyLafara: OMG they do it in ice cream!! I really need to try that.
@AidenMacRaeAye, in Aberfoyle. A wee shop with a drawing of a lass fishing that says
"Show Off Yer Bobbers!"
@clairehuggy: Aberfolye is
lovely. I will pop in and try some next time i'm that way.

you guys? Did you dress up?
@makesmeworse12: Ha! I second
@RachelllRaeee: What she
: That seems like every day wear.
@makesmeworse12: But it would
be like costume to us. And completely hot. It's a win-win
@clairehuggy: Oh a bit
drafty round the terraces.
@makesmeworse12: Aww, you
probably would have looked so cute, though!
@connelly_martin: Cold air
fortifies the essentials.
essentials"? That's what you're calling them now?
Essentials. Capitalised. Aye, I like this.
@tnmedicgirl: I agree with
c_cass189: If we went to visit you, where would you take us?
@c_cass189: You'll drink

I'll drink with you! At the end of the night when I'm off. :)
@moore_zachary: Today I've

@tnmedicgirl: boo! Same

embarrassing story? I've a good one on the tumblr. Stand by for the link. *pops
@makesmeworse12: Is this going
to be the embarrassing story I'm thinking it is? Because, awww!
Around this point…..we started to get a little (really) silly…
@makesmeworse12: Hey, #FakeScotsmen, I'm eating cookies. Or, well, "biscuits." Want one? I'll send
you one to virtually enjoy! Hehe.
@moore_zachary: *drools, puts
@makesmeworse12: You're about
to make me swoon out of my chair. HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN?
@vatrask: Because he's perfect. Duh.
*picks you both up and twirls you around*
@makesmeworse12: *giggles* You
have such a cute blush!
@AidenMacRae: Oui, but only
in bits and pieces or else Lindsey gives me the evil stink eye.
@makesmeworse12: I DO NOT
UNDERSTAND. It's so sad. I got Aiden's, though. You are welcome, Aiden. :)
@The_Poupette: I just said
"so you speak french?" ;)
@makesmeworse12: Gotcha. Thank
@vatrask: Can you teach your lovely followers
som Gaelic then?
RIIIIGHT. One day they'll all know who's the corruptor & who's the
"Nothing's worn, all in good working order" as they say.
@moore_zachary: @connelly_martin Ye've never seen the ones they make for dugs? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuticles
@connelly_martin: I've NEVER
seen Neuticles? Is this a Yank thing?
@keeley_logan: they make
them for trucks, too. TRUCKNUTZ!!
@AidenMacRae: That may well
be the funniest and saddest thing I've ever seen.
@moore_zachary: Ah, found my most embarrassing moment story, per @AidenMacRae's request: http://shadeboys.tumblr.com/post/19317647388/tkmadness-truth-or-dare-this-one-goes-to-11
@AidenMacRae: Bloke has a
bloody brilliant voice, I must say.
(It really is a good movie but the misogyny of a 1950s set in the 1880s is laughable)
@connelly_martin: Never said I didnae want a cookie! PLEASE can I have one?
@AidenMacRae: Ah, I never
promised to play nice, did I? *winks*
@connelly_martin: Cheers, lass!
I mean, merci bien!! Tu est la PLUS gentille!
OK, I guess I would've finished with the word "night." Not
really the most interesting part. *shrugs*
Oh, I thought you were going to say "Wednesday". Which would've
@moore_zachary: No, we're too young. But someday. She is the one, for certain.
After little encouragement on the part of the fans…
A'right, then. Here's the surprise: http://shadeboys.tumblr.com/post/34944358477/look-its-the-cover-to-my-may-2013-novella
@Rpatzz: awesome news!
It looks great! :D
OMG!! I love it!!
Belter means something good, like fun. One of our many words for
That's cover's a pure stoater! But wait--you had some bad times? Where
what does stoater means?
(By this point if kind of felt like a mini language lesson but when three hot guys are teaching you, who cares?)
@moore_zachary: Hah! Cheers to you, too--have to do it again soon!
(Don’t worry guys, he won’t be leaving for a while)
Oooh, glad to hear that!!! Can't wait to read that book, even if there's
bad... events :p
Shower scenes for all!!
@vatrask: I think *I*
need a shower scene. Any volunteers?
I'll be back.
@connelly_martin: Think I WILL. RT @roztriani: @connelly_martin Are you going to do your own shower scene?
@connelly_martin: Hmm, it's
overdone, then. Perhaps a rain scene! We've lots of that here.
@AidenMacRae: Or perhaps in
the loch? Many to choose from, aye? http://pinterest.com/pin/197454764883254581/
: @cynditefft has an orgasmic amount of those
(she does. If you haven’t checked out her Pinterest account, you really should)
*pouts* I'm not ALLOWED to post such pics, cos of being in YA.
Only in my dreams, lass. Only in my dreams.
@vatrask: that's so funny... mine too
: I'm sorry the thought of Aiden saying LOL makes me LOL
@vatrask: alright homeslice I'll give you some
@AidenMacRae: Is this where
we pass out the champagne and everyone tells us how marvelous the show was?
@makesmeworse12: NO! Then I'd
have to leave.
@AidenMacRae: Ah, sparkling
cider then. ;)
@makesmeworse12: That would work. Thank you, Aiden!
I've a feeling yer Introvert Countdown clock has started.
@AidenMacRae That I will. You can count on it.
@vatrask: I look forward to it
Speak for yersel! Moore family motto is "through patience I overcome
difficulty." ...though it sounds better in the original Latin. /Durum
@moore_zachary: I meant it as a compliment. We 21st century lads take the piss as a sign
of brotherly warmth. @connelly_martin: Ours is in
French! *En Dieu Est Tout", or, "In God Is All."
: Well my family motto is: "if you can stand you haven't had enough to drink!"
*gasps* You're a Connelly, too?!
Connelly is Irish, too. Lots of them moved here to Glasgow.
@connelly_martin: Mmmm...extra fingers....
@moore_zachary: I shall
henceforth call you "Moon Goddess Sheep Sheep", or MGSS for short.
@vatrask: now you're just trying make me cry
(After this, the party ended but of course, Logan had to have the last word, coming out of nowhere)
@keeley_logan: I think your cover is awesome. also, Trucknutz.
Nevertheless, the last word should be Trucknutz.
And thus the Fake Scotsmen Chat was over with the final word: Trucknutz
So there you have it folks; how I spent my saturday. Thanks to everyone who came out and a special thanks to Jeri Smith-Ready and Cyndi Tefft for letting their boys come out to play, it was a lot of silly fun. Hopefully we can do it again.
