Lady Vetinari wrote:A Pratchett quote I love: "Do I like riding out on end of the world apocalypses, dear?" "No, it brings on your trouble!"


I Love Mrs. War, she is just Da Bomb.

also... Favourite passage: This at least was true. Rincewind could scream for mercy in niniteen languages, and just scream# in another forty-four.
#This is important. Inexperienced travellers might think that 'Aargh!' is universal, but in Betrobi it means 'highly enjoyable' and in Howondaland it means, variously' I would like to eat your foot', Your wife is a big hippo' and 'Hello, Thinks Mr Purple Cat.' One particular tribe has a fearsome reputation for cruelty merely because prisoners appear, to them, to be shouting 'Quick! Extra boiling oil!'

Tooo funny Sjeord/Stuart.

I shall have to spend a day or two working on mine. There are too many twists in me to do it all in one go. *shrug*
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Thanks!

I did it through http://www.driving101.com. It cost about $50 per lap and I got up to 158.5 miles per hour.

Good times! :)

I was going to use my Inca Trail photo, but I saw that pooh already used one and I'm a non-conformist.

I did listen to a little metal in high school, but I've always preferred classical. I also really dig Für Elise.

Für Elise! :D I love it and I could actually play it quite well on the piano at one time (when I was 10 - gave it up when I was 12 :oops: )

Favourite passage: (the fifth elephant page 418) 'Sam, I'm going to have a baby.'
Vimes head was full of werewolves and his automatichusbandly circuitry cut in ready to respond with 'yes dear' or 'choose any colour you like,' or 'I'll get someone to sort it out.'

Yo Devonshire! :lol:

Me too - born in Plymouth, but now living near Launceston so it barely count as Cornwall (as Devon is literally just over the border) so about 10 mins drive and I'm on the right side of the A30 :P . Quite a few of us on here live in Devon and Cornwall so you can talk like a posh farmer all you like me dear! :wink:

Personal stats
Real First Name: Daniel
Age: 30
Gender: Male, apparently.
Location: Northumberland. The tatty, scruffy, former mining bit; not the gorgeous, rugged, moorland bit.
Birthday: May.
Occupation/Former occupation(s): Currently a full time carer for my disabled wife. I'm trained as a decorator, but hated it, so I've also been a security guard, waiter, barman, kitchen porter, cleaner, building site labourer and international fencer. (O.K. - I built fences north of the border in Scotland, but my way of saying sit sounds so much more dashing!)
Hobbies: Reading, writing, trawling the internet looking for stuff that makes me laugh, walking, listening to music, watching rubbish films.
Things you love: My wife, my family, my cat, music, cricket.
Pet Peeves: The Daily Mail, gardening, building up to a sneeze which never happens, stubbing my toes, when my cat hides somewhere ridiculously contrived - then leaps out in order to make me jump.

Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon..." --- "Oh dear, I'm feeling political today. It's just that it's dawned on me that 'zero tolerance' only seems to mean putting extra police in poor, run-down areas, and not in the Stock Exchange."
Quote from a book: Johnny and the Dead - Suicide was against the law. Johnny had wondered why. It meant that if you missed, or the gas ran out, or the rope broke, you could get locked up in prison to show you that life was really very jolly and thoroughly worth living.

Your Profile/Adopted Character Info
Name and nickname: Danny B. (Isn't the nickname the same thing?)
Joined the forum on: Umm... The day I made my first post?
Favorite posting place on the Forum: I haven't been here long enough to develop any habits, yet.
Why did you choose that name/character?: It's just my first name and the initial of my second name. I'm imaginative like that, you see.
What made you register on this forum?: I love Mr Pratchett's work and waffling on the internet. This place is a happy concurrence of those two things.

Tell us your ‘what if’s’
If you could be anyone/thing in one of the novels who/what would you be?: One of those fellas of The New Cable Street Particulars.
If you lived in Ankh-Morpork which trade/guild would you want to join?: The Watch.
If you could go on a date with a character who would it be?: Susan Sto Helit. She fascinates me.
If you were deputising for Death, whose soul would you most like to take – and why? I wouldn't dare get personal. That seems to be what makes things go all screwy. I would most certainly not want Death angry with me.

Anything else you'd like to share with us?
Yes. In a piece of shameless of self promotion, I'd like to inform all of you that I write and that just about everything I write is available for free under a Creative Commons license at my blog, here:- http://waffleandwrite.wordpress.com/ :wink: I'm still putting the thing together, so new bits and pieces will appear at random, along with semi-frequent redesigns of the layout.
