    Jon and I were supposed to catch the SW in 30 mins thingy at the Fringe a few years ago but, as always, couldnt get parked in Embra for love nor money so decided against it and headed back to sunny Glesga...stopping in at the Paul Klee and Daali exhibitions on the way back.

    Feckin Embra and its funny parkin malarky!

    Yup, Edinburgh's a bugger to park in alright. Especially at festival time.

    Couldn't find a download of the play on the 'net (unsurprisingly) but here's their official site...

    greetings Zoe

    you better stock up on wooly jumpers if you're moving from Singapore to St Andrews...... something of a climate change to cope with there.

    // remembers last time I went camping in St Andrews

    Name: Rachel
    Age: 16
    Where are you from?: Born in Minnesota, raised in Missouri
    What are you doing on the Scottish board?: That would seem like a good question, wouldn't it? Well I'm about a third Scottish and I'm very proud of my heritage.
    Favourite Star Wars episode: ESB (predictable)
    Favourite Star Wars character: Han, Obi-Wan/Ben
    If you could be re-incarnated as an animal, what one would you choose?: Human
    How's the weather?: If you asked the weathermen, they'd say there was a foot of snow. But, of course, they never get it right. It's still sodding cold, though.
    Tea or coffee?: Green tea. Drank too much coffee as a little kid, kind of got sick of it.
    Irn Bru or Coca Cola?: I've never had Irn Bru. I should ask my history teacher how he gets his, because he loves it.
    Whisky or whiskey?: Well, I don't drink, but if I did, I'm sure I'd chose whisky ;)
    Last dream you remember: I had a dream I was at school. Isn't that exciting. [face_plain]
    Most embarrassing person you've ever fancied: ...Kevin Spacey? ;)
    Last book you read: The Twighlight Years by Arikoshi Sawaka

    Thanks, MrDankDonk! Yes, I've heard it is a little bit cold up there - I'm sure I'll get lots of terribly fashionable thermal underwear for Christmas. [face_laugh]

    I recommend wooly underwear, a wooly hat , an electric blanket and a drink habit of roughly half a bottle of Grouse a night.

    works for me anyway :D

    and speaking of mild drunkeness, can anyone tell me what the fudge DarthThunderbird was trying to tell us above ?

    oh, and hello Rachel Solojones
    please-ta-meetcha !

    don't worry about it, Thunderbird....

    I imagine that you don't get to use that war-cry terribly much in real life anyway..... feel free to practice on us.......

    ps
    have you ever lifted a highlander type broadsword ?
    I'm quite a big guy myself, but I tell you, the fellas that used to wave those heavy bastards about must have been real brutes......

    I'd like to have a chance to visit the towns of my own ancestors. My grandma has done a ridiculous amount of research into our geneology and I'd like to put some of it to good use!

    I've never tried to pick up a broadsword, but I image those buggers must be really heavy. I have this Spanish sword and I'm still amazed at how heavy it is, and it's probably not half the size of a broadsword.
