Well if we're there early we can choose to see whatever exhibits we want, and head off elsewhere if it takes our fancy?

Re: [UK] Scotland - the home of Burns, Haggis and Heroin Add

First Edinburgh meetup was at the Museum, and it's reopened now so might be worth a wander round for a while? I've not been in since everything was refurbished, and it's an easy enough place to find (and hopefully find folks in?).
Any other suggestions?

Okay, if anyone's still checking the fora, I'm going to be a little bit late, possibly not arriving until nearly 6pm. I'm also texting Teapot and Amy to let them know this.

OOPS: turns out I don't have Amy's number and can't find it quickly in my logs, so just Teapot will have to do.

There're places to go that aren't pubs, if people aren't 18 (outside? please, weather?), and pubs can still be a possibility if we do a daytime meet (dependin...

I think my hair tends to grow pretty fast, but it also comes out rather a lot (or is more noticeable in its falling out because it's so dark, at least). It's slowly edging its way down my back, expect at least another year and a half or so before it reaches my arse.
