This is NOT a pointless albatross!

This is NOT a copy of a Terry Pratchett Watch short story which DIDN'T appear in a WH Smiths free magazine. The story ISN'T titled "Theatre of Cruelty" and the artwork ISN'T by Josh Kirby. The story DOESN'T appear in "Once more with footnotes" which DOESN'T sell for well over 100 pounds on ebay, so some of you might not have read it.

I SHOULDN'T receive it soon because I HAVEN'T just bought it.

If you DON'T send me a PM with your name and address, I WON'T send you (completely free) a colour photocopy of the story. My only stipulation being that you DON'T donate some money to Alzheimer's when you DON'T receive your copy, which I'm sure you WON'T do because I DON'T trust you.

What are you doing up at this time, anyway? Anybody would think you weren't in the UK. :D

The clocks have gone back here and it's 7.25 am - quite a respectable time to be up. I'll go and fix breakfast in a minute. :wink:

What time is it there?

It was about 2:25pm but I had to teach at 2:30.

So far one person HASN'T sent me a PM so I WON'T send them a copy

Well I HAVEN'T got a copy already - It's a good story (or should that be it ISN'T? I'm confused). :?

I never knew that! Can you get all of "Once more with footnotes" on the interclax? Can you get Troll Bridge, the one about the chickens, and the Granny Weatherwax story too?

Some are available and others aren't. The Sea and Little Fishes (the Granny Weatherwax story) used to be available online as did Troll Bridge. I've never seen Hollywood Chickens online though. :?

Negative Waves, Moriarity, Negative waves.....

Sounds cool.

Don't look in your mail box
It would be a mistake to think that they weren't also dangerous, just because reading them didn't make fireworks go off in the sky. Reading them sometimes did the more dangerous trick of making fireworks go off in the privacy of the reader's brain.

The magazine DIDN'T arrive today, so I HAVEN'T photocopied it and HAVEN'T sent it to the two people who DIDN'T send me their names and addresses. So you two SHOULDN'T be receiving it in about a week because I DIDN'T buy it.

I didn't receive anything today, and therefore I haven't read it!

This is NOT an ultra rare, signed sampler of "The Sea and Little Fishes" which I HAVEN'T just bought. It certainly ISN'T a 36-page short story about Granny Weatherwax etc.

Image

When I DON'T get it I WON'T copy this and definitely WON'T send it to the three people who DIDN'T get "Theatre of Cruelty" because I HAVEN'T just bought it.
