We started yesterday with a great breakfast at Snax Cafe where Jasp tried Haggis (the real meat deal), Black Pudding, sausage, sliced sausage and a Tattie Scone. Morro stuck with the beans and veggie sausage brekkie. We did our daily dose of internet at Filament Coffee, and then set out to fill our house again. We totally did it! Team us and Ian worked really hard and found just the right amount of fun people to see our show and it was SOLD OUT again! YAY! We basically had a super fun party with the audience because they were awesome and there was even a pre-teen boy and girl sitting in the front row who were loving it and maybe probably learned a lot... maybe more than they wanted to. Also some people took pictures with us after the show and said we were their new friends.
After the show we realized that we were so hungry because we hadn't eaten since breakfast. A lot of places had stopped serving food at that point because even though it wasn't that late we guess they were tired too, so we had to visit a lot pf places before we found food that we could actually eat and not just look at pictures of. We found some salads that were the most expensive salads ever, because we are in Scotland, and took them to go eat by Greyfriars Bobby, a little dog statue which is the best statue in town. We love this little terrier and the story of his life and how he laid on his police-man owner's grave every night until he passed on too to join his owner in the dog afterlife or whatever it is that happens once you die. After our salads were done and we were about to walk home after another long day, we noticed that something was missing - our big cape banner. WE LEFT IT SOMEWHERE! AHHHHH! Running through the streets and retracing our steps, we went to every restaurant with a closed kitchen that we visited in the hours before. We thought about our stops and remembered that we were really excited when we found salad so maybe we put it down there. We ran to the expensive Patisserie and as we turned the corner we saw them locking up. "Wait!" called Jasp as she stumbled on some cobble stone, "Our faces with a tampon. Have you seen it?!". We caught them just in time and as we stepped through the door there was our banner rolled up, lying on the floor right beside the cash register. We were so excited for vegetables that we forgot why we were here and left it behind. Reunited again with our pixilated faces we started the journey home.
Then, we finally found the other ad that we paid big bucks for. When one buys these expensive street ads they don't get to choose where they go. They select a general area and then hope that the poster will appear somewhere that is good and visible and helps put their show in the minds of theatre goers as they pass it. We found our poster across a main street on a fence that is visible only to cars as they zoom by... and perhaps late at night when no cars are blocking it to people who have really good vision and happen to be looking at the fence way on the other side of the street. The photo is below... see if you can spot us...
We walked the rest of the way home really not knowing what tomorrow will bring. We still don't have reviews from the two reviewers that were supposed to come to the show last week. Another one was supposed to come tonight and didn't, and we only have 6 tickets sold for today's show but that, we are told, is how the game goes.
