Show yourselves!

gigglinggoblin Fri 05-Aug-05 22:30:13

hello

Ladymuck Fri 05-Aug-05 22:31:56

"Thud" and "Where's my cow" have already been pre-ordered in the Muck household!

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 22:38:29

I knew there were some fellow fans out there! LOL!

Twiglett and SoupDragon are too, from a thread today. And so is Mr LGJ, I believe?

Twiglett Fri 05-Aug-05 22:39:55

"I'm on a mission from Glod"

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 22:40:27

Wow, a ready-made clique! LOL!

Twiglett Fri 05-Aug-05 22:41:27

(Would love to stay and chat .. but bathtime and a re-read of 'Eric' are waiting .. time to soak my bits )

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 22:41:52

I'm re-reading Small Gods atm - love it!

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 22:42:42

Night, Twiglett - make sure you wash all the glitter off Realise I seem to be making light of your medical concerns lately and am about it - sorry, my dear!

'Don't let my fire go out' collection box at the Ankh-Morpork sanctuary for sick dragons always makes me smile – and the hedgehog song. Bet MN could come up with some entertaining verses for that.

Granny Weatherwax rules in the cheesey household.

MI's a fan too, this thread should fetch her out.

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 22:45:46

Dwarf bread...that cat piss makes it even more appealing to dwarves...

edam Fri 05-Aug-05 22:47:37

In fact, I'd quite happily vote for Vetinari and Vimes as joint rulers of the known world. As long as they asked Granny Weatherwax for permission, of course.

gigglinggoblin Fri 05-Aug-05 22:48:16

I live in the city which ankh morpork is allegedly based on (in the shades, no less ). not sure if thats just local legend but there is a bookshop in town with a furry ginger man who is supposed to be the inspiration for the librarian and they always have lots of signed terry pratchett stuff in there

edam Fri 05-Aug-05 22:49:55

An anti-Jamie Oliver school dinner - dwarf bread and CMOT Dibbler sausages.

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 22:50:06

One man, one vote, Vetinari was the man, he had the vote - love that system of democracy!

What was the first TP you read? Mine was Mort - loved it! Death's a great character - love The Grim Reaper too.

edam Fri 05-Aug-05 22:50:47

ooh, where are you GGG?

gigglinggoblin Fri 05-Aug-05 22:52:34

lancaster, right next to morcambe.

think mort was my first one aswell, thanks to my little bro bringing in a stack of them to hospital after i had ds1. witches are my fave - love nanny ogg!

edam Fri 05-Aug-05 22:53:19

Dh made me read The Light Fantastic. I really, really didn't want to. Cover looked very suspicious. Thought it was going to be sub-Tolkein rubbish. But he nagged and nagged and nagged and nagged - bless him, it's one of the very few times I've had to admit I was wrong and he was right.

I want more witches - when is he going to write another Weatherwax one???

colditz Fri 05-Aug-05 22:53:31

Mine was Soul Music.

PMSL at all these. Oh God, I'm going to have to pack them all in my suitcase for next week's holiday. Shall I leave out ds's nappies to make room?

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 22:55:29

Yeah, definitely! Nappies are a luxury, TP books are a necessity!

Ladymuck Fri 05-Aug-05 22:58:21

Just buy the nappies when you get there...

edam Fri 05-Aug-05 23:24:51

God, a Pratchett clique of women who are prepared to sacrifice their babies' behinds in the search for truth, dignity and the Ankh-morporkian way.... what a frightening prospect we are!

hunkermunker Fri 05-Aug-05 23:25:47

Oh, we're hardline TP fans, Edam Not for the maybes, this clique
