At the Forest Cafe this evening, at something Ed's been organising where people read out bits of their favourite novels. I read from Swamp Thing and the Schroedinger's Cat Trilogy the first time round, this time I was roped into doing Hitchhiker's with Ed and Erin (Ed's idea). I did Arthur, trying to pull of bemused exasperation as best I could. Seemed to go down quite well, although Ed felt it was a failed idea.
Afterwards chatted to James, who mentioned cangetmad
had been chatting to him earlier. Edinburgh is sometimes a scarily small place. Especially for the capital of a country.
Then home via guyinahat
's, who chatted to me and Erin for an hour or so (interrupted briefly by a phone call to greenamber
, sitting in Mexico airport somewhat tiredly) and then we walked home.
Where I have been chatting to middle bro drainboy
(whose post about dancing in a gay bar need to be read) and playing Massive Assault, which was rather good fun, especialy for a turn based strategy game.
Now thinking of getting a remarkably early night, if I can evict Erin from the bedroom, where she's chatting to someone about something. Oh, and if I can bear to get this cat off my lap.
