Last night we visited Edinburgh to go and see some comedy. Got train from Glasgow (one-way single, on Norm’s instruction). On arrival at Edinburgh, Norm discovers that his return ticket is not a waste after all as they are running late trains. Bob, Jon and myself however have to look forward to paying full amount to get back, brilliant, great start.
We had a struggle finding a pub to watch the rugby in. Scotland were playing Ireland so we thought that would be a good start to the day. We eventually settled on a Wetherspoons and enjoyed pear cider and a rare Scottish win with trys and everything. The rest after that becomes a bit of a blur.
Weather not so nice but still had to go for chips on the bench, its tradition now! Chips scoffed, off to another pub before meeting Niels at the Pleasance. I was only going to see Simon Amstell so I sat and was taunted as ‘Robbie William in disguise’ and asked for beard growing tips for an hour while the others went off to see Rob Deering.
On their return it was a quick turnaround to seeAmstell. I do remember it being funny but the individual jokes were lost in my residual haze of pear cider and lager. Not sure if its is an indictment on the Festival, but as usual the best laughs were had on the return train at the end of the night.
