What's the craic with the Jura Unbound thing?  Is it really JY and KC and whisky on a bank holiday Sunday for free???  That seems a bit easy and too good to be true, Shirley?

Vic confirmed JY and KC would be there when he signed my copy of his book. Sounds like a great night doesn't it ?

Are the late trains still running to Glasgow? If not I may have to insist that Mrs. Czefski drives.

I'd double check but Scotrail sez:

"Seven nights a week from Friday 2nd until Sunday 25th August
The following additional services will operate:
0001 Edinburgh to Glasgow Queen St calling at Linlithgow 0018, Polmont 0025, Falkirk High 0029, Croy 0039, Lenzie 0045, Bishopbriggs 0050 and Glasgow Queen St 0058
0030 Edinburgh to Glasgow Queen St calling at Linlithgow 0047, Polmont 0054, Falkirk High 0058, Croy 0108, Lenzie 0114, Bishopbriggs 0119 and Glasgow Queen St 0128"

And Vic said this would end around 11pm.  Allegedly.  ;)

We'll be running over after the Gaiman signing finishes. Save me a whisky kthxbai  8)

I was thinking of wearing a piece of label tape over my arm that says AETC.  ::) Or we could wear carnations.   ;)

Somehow 'Are you on the Hub?' just doesn't have the same ring to it.  ;)

Cheers Paula, I don't think we'll have time to get through to Glasgow to drop the car off and get back to Edinburgh for 9, so one of us will have drive. I'll have to read my Henry Kissinger guide to negotiation skills book tonight.

Right then, who will be at the Jura Unbound event? I'll probably be there about 8:30. Generally my OCD tendencies land me early to things.  ::)

Yup, I'll be there. Looks like there's a ticketed event before it (something about horsemeat :o) that finishes at 8.15 so you're probably spot on with your timings!

Good thing I got there early.  8) There was a queue of people they couldn't let in.

Last night was great fun, all on good form and enjoying themselves. Not too much chat about the past week helped too. Kenny's set was excellent and surprisingly included a Withered Hand song that I haven't yet hear Dan play. I would have preferred if JY had done 1 Huckleberry song then left it at that but that's a minor grumble. Really looking forward to Saturday now.

Great night, really funny - a lot funnier than the comedian we paid for earlier on in the day.  JY on brilliant form, KC playing HMS Ginafore songs, free whisky - that's a good night in anyone's book.  Can't believe the granny joke got told though!
