Taking its toll

Well, I have now been up in Edinburgh a week and the Fringe is beginning to takes its toll. The bank account is starting to look rather empty and the bags under my eyes rather full but it is, of course, completely worth it! While it may take the rest of the year to recover, a month in Edinburgh that doesn't involve over-indulgence, going to bed as the sun gets up or talking secretly/loudly about a celebrity standing behind you is a month wasted. Bring on the next two weeks! (This attitude may change....)

It was great to wake up this morning to see in yesterday's blog that the gimps were concerned for my welfare and curious as to my whereabouts. In all honesty, I was a couple of minutes away from Brookes Bar (The Official LNGF Bar of 2010) in the Underbelly CowBarn. A really nice outside bar that has lanterns and enormous chairs covered in astro-turf. I felt a bit like a sporty Borrower. All in all, it was a nice change of scenery. So, for those of you playing at home, the answer to yesterday's quiz was: 9 (wearing a blue jumper). The eagle-eyed among you will have spotted that the other options were all tricks to catch you out. I don't indulge in any of them! Well, except number 6 but I might buy some nasal strips. Do they actually work or are they like those wrist bands children wear to make sure they don't feel sick on planes?

Anyway, after a big sleep, all the gimps woke up around midday and split up to see various shows. Matt, Dave and I watch Steve Pretty's excellent show
The Origin of the Pieces at the GRV. A really fun hour with a fantastic finale! Catch it if you can!

We also received our first delivery at the Gimp Flat. We're all rather excited about the contents (see photo...)

Right, time for the show. Bye for now,

Richard.
