Re: [UK] Scotland - the home of Burns, Haggis and Heroin Addicts

I have film-making plans on zee Sunday, so can't make it i'm afraid.

So, just throwing it out there, there's going to be a Glasgow Zombie Walk on Halloween.

If anyone thinks a meet up involving awesome fancy dress, zombie shuffling and booze afterward is a good idea, then give me a shout!
