Any Embra peeps up for a meet before Christmas? I'm thinking a Saturday, and The Dagda Bar. How does the 8th of December sound?

Ah that's a shame, that'll be the first weekend after I move back to England. Actually, that's way too convenient for it to be a coincidence. HAVE A NICE DAY YOU SHITS.

It’s almost like you read my mind. There’s a school fair that I want an excuse to miss that day. Will need to check we’ve nothing else planned.

How about the 1st? I thought that might be a bit soon... Here, have a poll

Dagda Bar alright for everyone? I was thinking The Caley Picturehouse because it's cheap and it's the nicest 'spoons but 'spoons are evil and Brexity and The Dogda has good dogs as well as being nice and quiet on a Saturday and it's the best pub in Embra:

Technically a Toronto one last night. We’re too cool to start threads about it though.

That's so cool. I'd love to go to Edinburgh - too much dosh to travel though.

I had a meet last night in my bed and it was lovely.

It is my favourite city in the world, and I am eternally jealous of anyone who gets to live there. I managed 2 years before the shit job market (and Canadian wife) forced me out of the place.

Still try and go back once a year if I can. We got married in Lothian Chambers so I have some of those photos on the table next to me, which is nice. Nice shot of Edinburgh, all old and craggy. Nice.

Eeek. My social diary has become quite busy just now... I have another engagement in the evening, and it would be a good idea not to be too 'pre-loaded' for that. Also my family may be getting to the point where they no longer recognise me.

I will try and drop by for an hour or so though, if this is still ON.

Just out of interest what is it about Edinburgh which makes it stand out from the crowd for you?  I hear a lot of people say they love it.

I'm still hoping I can make it. I may be a little late as I've got something on tomorrow night, but it'd be nice to be there for a short while at least.

Sorry, but I'm thinking it might now be best to postpone this to some time when people will actually be able to make it for a decent length of time and can relax without worrying about having to dash off.

None of you Scotland-dwellers are doing Dry January, I hope?

Sounds like a thought. Rescheduling, not Dry January, obviously.

The whole place is walkable, friendly, beautiful, affordable, but it still has a bit of edge to it. Big enough to feel big, small enough to feel knowable. Near the Pentlands for hiking, fun stuff to do all over the city, lots of hidden places and little corners that I only I know. I’m also a sucker for the accent and the fact that it is socially semi-acceptable to cut about with a tin of special brew at 11am.

It’s a remarkable, magical place. I don’t know why everyone hasn’t moved there already.

It has its problems (the preservation of the New Town almost feels like mummification, and those fucking shit tartan shops can get to fuck), but it’s where I’d like to live if I could wangle it. Don’t tell Toronto!

Sorry, I don’t mean to derail the thread. I am living vicariously through you all.

Please don't vote Tory when you're up here. That's all I ask! (I technically live in East Lothian, but it's true here too...)

No chance.  I voted Lib Dem last time due to the strength of the candidate, and to kick out the incumbent tory :-)

Thank God for that. If you do move up here, Edinburgh West is a good shout, as it's critical Lib Dem/Tory territory. I'm not Christine Jardine's biggest fan, but she's better than that arsehole Miles Briggs.
