great scott!

"Great Scott! is an exclamation of surprise, amazement, or dismay."

As previously mentioned I absolutely adore anything that references the origins of a common expression or phrase, so I felt I had to include the wikipedia origins of Great Scott with this post.

I realized that I've probably never mentioned it before, but my sister spent almost two years living in Scotland while earning her masters from University of Glasgow. Luckily, my summer abroad aligned with the time she was living in Scotland and we were able to meet a couple of times in different cities that summer. We were also able to explore a little of Scotland and the countryside throughout Scotland was some of the most beautiful. My sis follows Frightened Rabbit closely, and she sent me this video last week. Apparently, footage from their tour is being turned into a documentary. The shots of the countryside are so beautiful, I wanted to share it here.
