EIFF up-date : saw Death Defying Acts, A Film With Me In It, Brian Cox Q&A, Shane Meadows Q&A, various Happy Hours (Team WA won the Delegate Pub Quiz which netted us some Marx Brothers dvds), couple of parties – one of which had an experimental slide show (very Woodstock) and a magic igloo – personally I found it hard to see what was magic about said igloo, but it was very white – favourite party had free bar all evening (but they obviously worried a LOT about the wine drinkers as there was a little sign at the bar saying ‘a SMALL glass of house white wine’) and have been hob-nobbing. Feeling like I’ve hobbed too many nobs if truth be known now, 9 days in, but still sad there’s only 2 days to go (though my credit card will not be sorry).
Attended the BBC Writersroom event at the Traverse in Edinburgh yesterday – the first of their roadshows around the UK. Met Kate Rowlands – very friendly, enthusiastic and approachable. Haven’t yet put anything in to them but plan to later this year – informative presentation, and Kate made herself available for chatting in the bar afterwards!
My mate and MA classmate, Ronnie has got through to Sharps – well done! He’s off to London on the 30th for the next stage.
Nothing fell from the sky – not even manna or frogs – how disappointing.
