Edinburgh, day 3

Another hangover, another McDonalds craving. And I switched hostels too, which meant dragging all my stuff across town to the cheaper accommodation. I hadn’t booked anything until I was in London and by then most places were full, so this was the cheapest way to do it.

This was going to be the best day for Fringe shows, starting with the Ukulele Project with Clare and Es. THEY WERE AWESOME! Three very talented kids just a little younger than ourselves, putting every other ukulele based act to shame. A big, big highlight. And we all fell in love with the girl.

I’d also managed to discover a cool a cappella group from Oxford! Yes, ukulele and a cappella in one day. Brilliant. They were as fun as I’d hoped they’d be, and I got dragged in to some audience participation too for blind dating. Blindfolded, I was sung at by two girls with the group, and had to chose which I liked the most. Really fun, and scored a kiss too.

I carried on by myself for more adventuring and sights about town, and on the hunt for more show tickets from venues. And that McDonalds, finally.

Ferris Bueller’s Way of Life grabbed my eye so I headed along, not knowing what to expect – like most other things. It was pretty great, a guy talking about parallels between moments in the movie and his (rather interesting) life. Fun stories, quite sweet at times, and pretty funny too.

Then I was sprinting over the hill to another venue, trying for spare tickets released at the last minute for Chris Addison’s sold out stand up. And I got one! Which was AWESOME. I hadn’t seen his stand up before, but he was incredibly funny and very animated. Lots of middle class jokes. Easily a highlight too.

Another awesome Gourmet Burger meal and it was back to the hostel late. Sleep!
