The Edinburgh Festival

| 44 Comments | No TrackBacks

August is a fabulous month to live in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh, normally a city of 450,000, swells to a mighty 2 million. There are over 5,000 shows - dance, theatre, opera, the Tattoo and comedy. In order to watch them all you'd need four years without sleep.

Edinburgh is also the month that the Swedes came to town.

A villian that possesses the power to move metal objects with his mind is a supervillian.

A hero who can fly and has X-Ray vision is a superhero.

People who are neither heroes nor villians, but who have powers far above and beyond the powers of normal people, who can sway men's minds, turn a party into a Partaaaaay!!, inspire toplessness in random women and incite an entire club to near riot status are just bloody dangerous.

Anna Skoog and Jessica Andersson are just bloody dangerous.

What nefarious scheme are they planning?

Something devious, I assure you.

No, really, run while you still can.

Wait. Which one is Jessica and which one is Anna? Also, I'm not familiar with the month of Edinburgh. And, furthermore, wish that you wwere home for that brief moment after maman had seen this as she reacted to it. It was priceless:)

The little brother bids Adieu! Today is the last day i live at home this summer.

Ha ha! Jessi is on the right and Anna is on the left.

I wish I'd seen Maman's reaction, too. Wait 'til I get brave enough to put up more pictures! Hee hee!

Ange is visiting now, and we're just about to go out and about. More to come!

Wait! Last day at home? Where are you going? Does school start soon?

Yes. Today (sunday) our intrepid adventurers embark on yet another journey into the great wilds of University life. Join Marty Stauffer this week as he explores the alluring, the voluptuous, if not insincere and often hostile environment of the wild college female.

Right, as if the environment of the wild college male is any less treacherous for the college female to experience.

My reaction was something on the order of . . . "Nae's having way too much fun." I think so, anyway. As in "I think that was my reaction", not "I think Nathan is having too much fun." This is bad. Do I have to edit all my reactions for fear that they will be broadcast instantly? Not to be defensive, but in a sincerely contempletative way.

Oh, Maman!

It's all in good fun! You should feel free to have your reactions and then defend them as vigorously or as quietly as you like. Or not at all, if you prefer.

Ange is over now, and there are a ton of Anna & Jessi photos to process and post, and dozens of African friend pictures, and a lot of discussion that I want to have with my siblings, because I kinda need some help getting out of a sticky situation and they'll know what to do.

Also, I need to call you and Chris and Karl and Bj and my Bank and the police (to get my shotgun certificate) and need to do my UK taxes and take care of my council tax and sort out my condo agency and it's a bit overwhelming. Then I have my actual job to do.

Anyway, I'm sure I'll speak to you soon.

I'm grinning ear to ear! Give me a call anytime on skype. I've gone over my minutes so only call my cell if it's Friday or after 9pm in DC.

Hi there, You have done an incredible job. I will certainly digg it and personally recommend to my friends. I'm sure they'll be benefited from this web site.

Some truly interesting information, well written and broadly speaking user pleasant.

Hey, i think you visited my website so here i am!.I am looking for ways to add things to my website!Is it ok if i use some of the things i saw here?!

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

I like the helpful info you provide in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and check again here regularly. I am quite sure I will learn plenty of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

I want to encourage my friends here to visit this very cool blog!

I was just seeking this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what's the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.

I have been absent for a while, but now I remember why I used to love this website. Thanks , Iˇ¦ll try and check back more often. How frequently you update your web site?

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I thGreat ˇV I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task..

Good website! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I'm wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

Great post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Very useful information specially the last part I care for such info a lot. I was seeking this particular information for a long time. I will keep the attention of your blog. Thank you and good luck.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

Many thanks for the art, it is interesting and compelling. I have found my way here through Google, I am going to return one more time :)

fantastic issues altogether, you simply gained a logo new reader. What could you suggest in regards to your publish that you simply made some days ago? Any sure?
