Listen in, listen Ian!
Edinburgh so far:

- The train journey up featured a man with a badge saying "Customer Service Assistant" informing someone that the fact they'd issued duplicate seat reservations wasn't his problem.

- Josie Long's show is great. Although miserable Paul Morley, who was in front of us in the queue for it didn't seem to be enjoying it so much. Boo for miserable Paul Morley.

- martylog's Gutted musical is excellent. It's got a proper pop star in it!

- Having seen the above last night, getting home at about 1.30am we got up early this morning thinking we were seeing Daniel Kitson at 10 this morning. It turned out we aren't seeing him until tomorrow. How we laughed, through our exhaustion soaked tears!

- Dinosaur Planet, featuring carsmilesteve is also excellent - see it when it comes to the Camden Fringe, unless you don't live in London in which case you needn't.

We went to an Italian place to eat tonight, and I ordered fish soup to start. It was amazing, a huge bowl of what was really more like fish stew, with shellfish and squid and huge prawns and monkfish(!) in it. OM NOM NOM!

Josie was ace, wasn't she! I want her to be my little sister/best friend - she complimented me on my skirt when I arrived at her gig! Oh dear, sounding like comedy stalker again.

Were seeing kitson on Saturday - looking forward to it despite the crazy start time.

How long are you up for?

The night we went to see Josie there was a bizarre, not-laughing-very-much audience in... I got a dirty look from a gal across from me for having the audacity to laugh heartily... Strange people! Maybe Paul Morley sent them.

Kitson at 10am today (squee). There's not many people I would get up at 7.30 on a Saturday for ;)

Paul Morley was sent to see it for the BBC's Edinburgh review show. He did seem to like it.
