We have arrived in Scotland over a week early for the !Edinburgh festival!
This was intentional.
I wanted to be prepared.
I am doing drills with props. My sister shouts out EMERGENCY and blows a whistle and then I have 7 minutes to set up everything. If I don't do it in under 7 minutes, nothing happens. It's really fun.
Also, my contract ran out on my flat at home and so I thought why not move to Scotland for 6 weeks? IT'S LOVELY! And I didn't need vitamin D anyway.
I am here to do my show BoOkWoRm. The majority of my blogs this year have been about this so you may be glad to know that as the festival is about to start, once September comes, I will have to blog about other things. Like the things I see in my sleep and oddly shaped vegetables.
If you would like to see the show and are thinking of coming to the festival, click CLICK
If you do actually up come up here to see me, I will hug your legs and never let go.
To thank you in advance, and because I like to share, I have prepared a list of shows I think are very great or that I think will be great. My opinion means nada, but hey! Maybe we can sit next to each other? I like to be at the front.
And below the hit list is some more evidence of this whole thing in progress. Photos.
(I would include links, times, venues for each one, but that would take a lot of time!..... it's all here at www.edfringe.com)
