haggis seems like a pretty extreme way to break your vegetarianism!

while I can't say that I've ever had it, it sounds kinda gross....is it actually good?

it is actually very good. it was completely worth it. *grin*

wish you could try it sometime. you'll have to take my word for it, so you will. :-)

Would you be up for doing it again in a years time? :o)

I'm all for doing it in reverse!

We WILL have that coffee... I'm determined.

of course, in fact, i'll come over just for that coffee in celebration of you moving there, so i will!

excited to hear about it.
