Hi folks,

I posted a new video of Zorras here. It's from our gig at Museum of London. The lighting was truly pants (Scottish for sucky), but the sound was pretty okay.

In other news, there's much a-happening in Edinburgh for International Women's Day this Sunday. One cool thing is Raise Your Hem playing at 6pm at The Pleasance Cabaret Bar. Cost: £6/4. It's a fundraiser for "Gude Cause" campaign; combining remembrance and activism for women’s rights over the past 100 years. For more info call 229 0993 or email

Another cool thing is "From Margaret to Mary," a herstory tour of the Royal Mile, free at 1:30pm on Sunday. Meet outside the Camera Osbcura.

Also, I recently read Ann Patchett's Truth and Beauty: A Friendship (thanks to C for that). It's a beautiful and sad account of Patchett's friendship with fellow writer Lucy Grealy (who died a few years ago from an overdose after many years of struggling with chronic pain). I'm not usually that into biography, but it's a tremendous book, especially refreshing because it places such importance on friendship. Truly, where would any of us be without our family of friends?

Then I fell upon a copy of Patchett's Bel Canto, which I'm currently enjoying. Not sure I completely dig her, but I really love her style, characters, and sense of humour. I'm halfway through, though, and the book has yet to move me in any big way. We shall see...

In still other news, I have yet to tell you my latest NHS horrors. Too depressing. Almost as depressing as my employment horrors. Which I also won't bother with right now. But more deets soon, if I can pay my rent long enough to keep posting here...
