A B.A.D. Week

One of Those Weeks
It’s been one of those weeks. Unable to blog much due to travelling between cities, gigging and the compulsion to get BACCARA BURNING and GREENER finished, I was left little time to put any thoughts on it all into my blog – until now.

It’s Saturday morning and I’m shortly to head out into the city for my Saturday wander and coffee stop, but to recap, the main highlight of the week for me was the Big Audio Dynamite (B.A.D.) gig in Glasgow’s ABC on Wednesday night.

They were fantastic. It wasn’t the best set list I was hoping for but it was damn good. Most of the songs transferred well onto the live stage, and Mick Jones was on great form, looking like he was having fun and bantering well with a pretty decent crowd. It was a great night. A full review will be up over at Man in the East in a few hours.

Pie and a Pint
The departmental “Pie and a Pint” lunch took place during the week. Off we toddled to Thomson’s Pub in the west end of Edinburgh, and tucked into their world famous steak pies. These things are phenomenal and simply THE best steak pies anywhere. I would recommend anyone in town goes for a lunch in there just once – you’ll be amazed.

On the subject of pies, check this out : www.greggsadventure.com – someone is tasting and reviewing all of Greggs products on a website! Ones assumes the guy doing it isn’t bothered about his waistline.

I’m currently sitting on 926 Twitter followers. The 1000th follower of my account will win ALL my e-books – STELLA, FRINGE FANTASTIC, POOLSIDE POETRY and SILLY POEMS FOR WEE PEOPLE VOL.2 – as a prize. So get twittering: @colingalbraith

This weekend sees the end of the month wrap-up – we’re into April already, in fact – so I need to get a lot of things tied up before Sunday night. In other words, I’d best get stuck in instead of hanging around here.

Have a great Saturday y’all!
