I thought I would have a stab at writing something about my half day off work. I took the half day off to better enable me to head to Edinburgh. I got to King's Cross around 2pm after a 12.30 taxi ride from the office. The hour available before my train allowed me to ring up a friend to talk about Glastonbury tickets (incidentally, the phone wanted to write glastonatsy, which I assume is the facist antidote to the glastonhippy). I also went to the post office and bought my road tax.
Then there was a train to Newcastle on which I watched a Jimmy Carr dvd. Then a wander to the cash point in Newcastle and a trip to starbucks. Now I'm back on a train. It's 7 and I'll be in Edinburgh in 80 minutes or so.
Using this phone to write a blog entry is not as much fun as I'd have hoped, so I'll stop. I have higher hopes for Edinburgh itself. I may even shower when I get to my hotel. I certainly need to poo.
