A cold start to 2007

Neon Grasshopper
Just thought we needed a new post.. and it is a good excuse to show you my picture. :)

I went along to the Night Afore International celebrations as part of Edinburgh's Hogmanay on the 30th December. It was GREAT. A theatrical extravaganza. These neon grasshoppers ran/bounced along the street.. and posed for lots of photos.. heheh.. It was a cold night, but not raining.. and my cheapo jacket is actually pretty good (so far) at keeping me warm.

Hogmanay (New Year's Eve) was another story completely! The wind picked up to gale-force, it pelted down with rain, and was a downright miserable day and night! They even cleared the street (they usually have a very popular (and therefore ticketed) street party!). Unheard of! Ahhh, weather.. the overpowering force. :)

Because it was so dismal outside, we stayed in had good company, good drinks, good food (well.. cheese (and ham) toasties) and played games on the Xbox. I enjoyed myself.. dunno about anyone else.

Anyway, I'd best be off now - it's a little late and I need to use tomorrow to get ready to move to Manchester.. aarrgghh! *grin*


  1. Great photo! The costume is awesome! It sounds like it was a really good night :)

  2. yeah, they look like those microscope pictures of bugs.. very cool indeed :)
