Edinburgh Man #255

March 3rd, 2017

Last night’s podcast was a rambling shambolic mess, and I was so shattered afterwards that I didn’t even have the energy to upload it! So it’s a Friday morning update, for which I apologise.

Yesterday was “World Book Day” and for some strange reason, Edinburgh Man Junior’s school is allowing pupils to eschew their school uniform and dress as their favourite character from literature (or just their regular clothes) today. I had a panic yesterday when I thought I’d sent him to school in his uniform and all the other kids would be dressed up, but no. Turns out his school is doing it today. Phew. All week he’s been saying he’d just being going in jeans and a t-shirt until last night when, with no time to prepare an outfit, he declared his desire to go as Willy Wonka. So this is the best me and his Mum could do given the time. A fake Wonka chocolate bar. Coupled with his best ripped jeans he can claim to be Charlie Bucket. That is until he eats all the chocolate, and we get a phone call from the school telling us he’s been sick in the playground. Next year I’m not going to listen to him and secretly prepare an outfit just in case…

Just a couple of days ago I found myself wondering how long I’d been doing this podcast thing, so I decided to try and figure it out. And would you belive it? The podcast is seven years on this Saturday. Seven years! There’s nothing like a birthday to make you wallow in nostalgia, so that’s exactly what we’re doing on tonight’s show. I look back at every birthday the podcast has ever had, and play a track from the corresponding show. I through in a couple of extra tracks for good measure too.

I was about to end with “here’s to another seven years”… but then realised I’d be an even old fart then than I am now, so maybe not.

Some poor technical planning this week has prevented a live podcast. So instead I’m recording this early on a Saturday morning while I try to recover from a intensive week of school holiday fun with Edinburgh Man Junior. We managed to do soft play, the zoo and the Lego Batman Movie over three days and now I just want to sleep. But no, it’s the weekend, so there are still two more days of craziness to go.

I’m all full of adrenaline and talking 100 miles per hour on today’s show. I tried to post a link to the live streaming page on Facebook earlier this evening only to discover that the show’s website had been redirected to a “domain parking” page. For a few minutes, I was totally terrified that I’d let the domain expire and was about to get blackmailed thousands of pounds to get it back. In the end, it was some random DNS issue, but my heart was still pounding by the time it came to record the show.

A show which… I really enjoyed doing! What I mean is, I forgot how much fun the live shows are. Thanks to everyone who listened and tweeted at me. Please fee free to join in the fun(?) each Thursday at 9pm.
