I'm doing a tiny bit, in a brilliant line-up, at this charity gig, midnight tonight. Some tickets left, apparently. bit.ly/1timSZE
  7h
Enjoying how many people are complaining that I haven't taken the tram.

In less sarcastic news, I'm in a taxi from Edinburgh airport to the city and almost giddy with excitement.

Actually, no. New policy. I will attend the shows but loudly cough "loser" into my clenched fist during the first quiet moment.
  8h
Don't want to waste my time on comedy acts that can't win awards. It would be hollow laughter.
  8h
Arrived in Edinburgh to find 10 of the 12 shows I have tickets for, have NOT been nominated for an award. Better tear up those tickets now.

@daraobriain This page has a lovely list of alternate names for the game: boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3886… "Ducks in a Row"

Jesus, it is, isn't it! “@RyanDomville: @daraobriain Yeah, its on assassin's creed 3, funnily enough”
Thanks to all who said Nine Men's Morris! Other people, less likely... RT“@walkiw10: foxy boxing”
We seem to be going with Nine Men's Morris. Bizarrely, in a child's lunch deal pack on Brittany ferries, without rules.
Hey, does anyone know what game this is? Trying to find the rules... pic.twitter.com/8pZUdxscs2
The tour starts in Ireland on Oct 15th and in the UK in 2015. More previews in September/Oct in Walton, Bracknell, Tring and Epsom
and yes that Edinburgh next week show is at 12 noon, not midnight… bit.ly/1r8tr3e @AssemblyFest
Obviously you should make sure to see actual Fringe shows first. You get loads of chances to see me. But still, if you’re free at midday...
Going to Edinburgh next week to see shows; have blagged a room to do some messing-around previews for the new tour: assemblyfestival.com/event.php?id=2…
There are people who can offer help; without judgement or obligation.
Let’s not let this news bolster the dumb, pat cliche about “Tears of a clown”. Depression is an illness that strikes anywhere in society 1/2
Here it is. Had to watch it first. Jesus, I have quoted this so often. #RipRobinWilliams m.youtube.com/watch?v=H5TQ4G…
I should post that "you do an eclectic celebration of the dance" clip from The Birdcage. An utterly perfect comedy routine.
Well, that is a proper gut-punch of news to wake up to. What a loss Robin Williams is.
Aaargh RT @AdamRutherford: Why, if Buzz thought he was a real spaceman, did he go all floppy when Andy came in the room LIKE THE OTHER TOYS?
@daraobriain It's nothing compared with the time I've spent getting wound up by the holes in the Stuart Little plot.

There is literally no chance that we’re over-thinking this.
Fair enough. RT @ed_son: Or you'd at least work for Monsters Inc for a few years, build up contacts and a reputation, then go self-employed.
