I didn’t win The Amused Moose Laughter Award, but I do have a shiny Runners-Up trophy on my Edinburgh mantlepiece. I’ll take that. Not bad for a poet in a comedy competition. Part of my prize involves a showcase gig at The Soho Theatre in London on Monday 19th September, so look out for that.
My family have been up since Friday so I’ve shied away from the late night festival shenanigans, but I’ll be doing my duty to Bottle and Fag once they’ve gone back home tomorrow. Plus I have my trip to Melbourne to think about. I leave on Monday 29th, so I have precisely 4 hours at home post Edinburgh. Eek!
Anyway, this city continues to be beautiful and relentless and incredible. Love it.
