Edinburgh Fringe


It seems to have rained for my entire 5 day holiday!

I started off going to Edinburgh last Saturday with Butcher boy and some others. Sadly the great monster Mash was fully booked, so we settled for some rather tasty 'well hung and tender' steak baguettes before heading to Medina to see the Amateur Transplants - well the Adam Kay half. It was a rather enjoyable hour of music, jokes, medical humour, profanity and stereotyping. All in good humour, including (rather pleasingly for Butcher Boy) some ribbing of Edinburgh Students - I wonder if he used that at his special performance for Edinburgh medical students later in the week.

Medina is a very odd place though - small metal benches with cushions to sit on, where you are about 4 inches off the floor. All very bizarre.

I then left them to their own devices and sprinted across Edinburgh (in the rain) to help with a tech getin for an event on the Sunday, making it home at 3am, just in time to pack for my proper holiday - a whistle stop tour of my Grandad, the lake District, Mum & dad before pitching up on Thursday in Edinburgh again.
