Listen in, listen Ian!
I'm going to see Daniel Kitson tomorrow evening. He's playing a gig in a bookshop in Crystal Palace, which is pretty good in itself, but the cooles thing is that the gig is free, but you have to buy a book. So, I'm going to a bookshop and I have to buy a book there. Gosh, I think I might just about manage that. i wonder what I'll buy - taking into account the stupid amount of books I already buy, I'm quite excited about this.

Going to the post office is rubbish isn't it? I went at lunchtime, and as if you don't have to wait long enough anyway, the other customers are so annoying. They shouldn't let them only start to fill in the recorded delivery form once they get to the counter - if they haven't done it by then they have to let someone else get served, then join the queue again after they've filled the form in. There was one man too, who queued up at the Bureau de Change counter, and having requested the currency he wanted suddenly realised he didn't have the cash, and ran off to use the cash machine. You can't do that. The fact that they don't have enough staff, and that the staff have to waste time trying to sell you stuff you don't want as well - grr, the post office makes me angry.

Edinburgh Fringe by numbers update:

Number of productions of The Laramie Project: 1. This is insane, there are usually about 6.

Why didn't he just do a cash transaction at the counter? The person serving him was clearly a div.

The recorded delivery thing - yes. Except that at our post office they've stopped having the labels out so now you have to queue up and ask for them. TSK.
I always ask for loads whenever I go so that I am not a queue holderupper.

The thing I hate most about the Post Office is that it's full of sniffling coughing idiots, like a doctors waiting room. And idiots who move too slowly. And those massively annoying people who don't move up when the queue in front of them moves. I'd like to give them a kicking.

I love Daniel Kitson - enjoy him! Is he doing stand up or a preview of the play he's bringing to Edinburgh in August?

Neither. He's playing the Regent's Park open air theatre on Sunday night, and the first half will be a story and songs show ith Gavin Osborn. It's a preview of that, which I'd be going to if I'd got a ticket before they all sold out.

Are you on his mailing list? He only advertised it there, and it 'sold' out the same night to people on the list.

Yes, that's where it is.

Yes! I saw that one today - I'd only looked in the Theatre bit at first.

Not the bookshop that just sells three pretentious overpriced art books? I can't think of any other one in Crystal Palace.

It's this one. Hopefully it sells decent books too.
