QUOTE (Celeste of the Stars1 @ Nov 26 2003, 08:05 AM)
The whole "of the Stars" thing was originally supposed to be "Queen of the Stars", but I don't see myself as a Queen.
I'm thinking of changing it to "Maiden of the Stars" What do you guys think?

You're kidding right? Madin of the stars sounds nice, but although a little more redundant, Celeste sounds mode devine, and much better in my book biggrin.gif
Ye and Arianrhod are the only two truly stellar (*literally*) names I've seen here. To maintain that solid link I believe would be a good thing smile.gif My vote, don't change.

Perhaps 'Queen of the stars' is what Arianrhod should use as a title, after all. According to what I have read, that's who the Arianrhod of folklore is, the 'Queen of the stars'

I'd definitely chime in for keeping Celeste (!), instead of Maiden, of the Stars!! Celeste of the Stars seems to flow together, is original, and sounds much more ethereal. It was a good choice!

"McHaggis" is the name of an arrangement I wrote for the Racine, WI, "Kilties" Senior Drum & Bugle Corps. Since it was a collection of Scottish tunes, a hodgepodge if you will, it was originally just called "Haggis" but mutated into something that sounds like you could order it before 11AM at an ethnic Mickey Dee's. ("Och, w'll ha'e th' McHaggis an' a wee dram, Lassie!")....."Mc" seems to be tagged on to a lot of Kiltie words for emphasis: everything from "McScrewed" to "Wow! She's really a McFox!"

Hence "McHaggis."

The chart has in it, among other tunes: An intro section of bits and pieces of "Comin' Thru The Rye," "Loch Lomand, " "Syne," and "Scotland The Brave," then goes into "Scottish Mary" ( a fiddle tune), "Skye Boat Song," a "Skye Boat-Flower Of Scotland" mixture, a "Flower Of Scotland/Amazing Grace" mixture, a little of the old "Brigadoon" theme, a ceildeh section playing "Drowsey Maggie," "Scotland The Brave," "Auld Lang Syne" (the previous two being historically a part of every KILTIES show), and......"Stay(Just A Little Bit Longer"/"Syne" mixture..("Stay" being the only non-Scots piece in it, but it fits so well as a counter melody to "Syne" that as a part of a closer it seemed a natural.....and before it's completed there's sure to be some other stuff thrown in as well.....maybe "Minstrel Boy," and "Highland Laddie" quotes or something.....

...darn thing never seems to have enough "Haggis" in it.

I was going to send it to them for the 2004 show, but that book is set already, so I'm going to hold off and present it next winter....or if I feel it's finally finished, I'll ship it off anyway.

Maybe later, I'll ship y'all a midi file of it on this forum.

So, that's the derivation of "McHaggis."

That's why I always sign these posts with my real name:

RON

Addendum: There' s so much stuff in that chart that when I went back to look at again after I entered the above that I realize that I'd left out a couple: a quote from "Blue Bells Of Scotland" in the intro and a whole section that features "On A Bank Of Roses," a traditional Robert Bruce song.....more shite than a Christmas goose, I'm telling ya!

Maisky is my dog's first name. Not very original, but I've been using it for the past 6 years. I can rember it, which is not trivial for ADHD me.

Maisky is a compromise: Mai was a Chinese friend and my youngest wanted the name to be Sky. The Chessy that bears that name is Maisky Dumpling. Often shortened to Dump. She is a large, protective sweetheart who follows my wife around all day and helps with EVERYTHING. She is a big cuddle in the morning. It is a great comfort to me that she is so protective, since I have had to travel a lot in the past. She delt with one intruder in the house so far. She bites, THEN she barks.

Mine really isn't that good really.
I have always used Ahilissa as my net name, the last name though comes from my love of the Band Queen.

Oh Rose of the Desert. Unless the slave of the puppies keeps them in a state of "spoiled rotten", they are cheating both themselves and their masters (dogs). Only the true "puppy" person can truely enjoy the relationship with the pouch(es). I can tell from your posts that your doggie owners would give you good reviews. biggrin.gif

Yeah! Maisky! My pups seem to like me pretty well. They like me better than hubby and he can't figure that one out because he is as good to them as me! But I am the mommy who does all the work (bathing, feeding, etc.,) so I guess that counts for something! rolleyes.gif smile.gif Have you seen pictures of them in the avatar thread? Some of us posted pooch photos there. You should post one and let us see your vicious protector! wink.gif
