Will Joy Help Me Get Through The Last Bit Of The Edinburgh

Will Joy Help Me Get Through The Last Bit Of The Edinburgh Fringe?

Things have definitely improved since the Olympics finished. But not quite as dramatically as everyone hoped.

Will Joy Help Me Get Through the Next Bit Of the Edinburgh Fringe?

We've nearly just about completed the first week. We've been here a little while and starting to get bedded in. I can tell because although the comedians still look mainly healthy, they are beginning to look a tiny bit tired. Also my once freshly laundered bed sheets now have a minor food stain on them, and I am about to wash them.

Edinburgh Fringe: Will Joy Help Me Get Through?

<a href="http://www.edfringe.com/" target="_hplink">The Fringe</a> is nearly upon us and I'm going through that classic 'why on earth did I agree to do this' phase of the preparation process. Unfortunately for me that phase has lasted for, well, lets see, it started in May... How is it July now? How?
