Unseen academicals launch - we need DW football teams!

Postby Periwinkle » Fri Aug 07, 2009 8:36 am

After some cunning planning!!!

We will be trying to get DW fan teams for the event - if Transworld have recognised how wonderful we are then we dont want to disappoint them so can I urge as many people as possible to please come along and support this event!

So we want a few 5 a side teams:

Suggestions:


Seamstress team - this is well on the way!

Renta
Periwinkle
Mabski

Wizards team - a must obviously with the book launch!!



Witches team?



Flatelists team?





Assassins Team - poison the opposition!!


Undead Team - Zombies, Werewolves, Vampires?? Wearing shades of course!!



Can people add names to the list if they are willing to be in the teams, we really do need to enter at least a Wizards and a Seamstress team to show the Transworld folks that the fandom is alive and kicking!!
Peace and be Wild!

I'd be really tempted by this if I wasn't going to be in Tucson at the time.

To the rest of you - if you can possibly make it, even if it's to only watch, then I urge you to go. Discworld events are incredible - the people there are very friendly and Sir Terry is going to be there. :wink:

Here's a map of the location - marked (A) - it's very easy to get to. If you live in London and don't have transport there's a bus service run by Berrys Coaches that goes to the High Street in Wincanton. :D

Pretty good, but, Not quite as purple as mine LOL they used a stripper to make it be more purple, I shall have some pictures soon, so YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! Actually this is almost exactly the color. My baby sister wants pictures so I am going to have a disposable camera and have my hubby take pics and have them put on a disc and with my "Two hamsters in a wheel" internet provider it should only take about a week to get them onto the internet LOL! :lol: :twisted:

Did you know that if you want really PURPLE text you can just change the word 'indigo' to 'purple'? :wink:

Code: Select all

OH! I don't know how many of you have seen the Kathy Bates movie "Fried Green Tomatoes", but I actually had a pretty close Kathy Bates character moment in town the other day.

In my minivan, jammin' out to the latest AC/DC "Spoilin' for a Fight" apprpriately enough, I looked at something I noticed with peripheral vision and saw two teenage girls laughing their bums off at me. I just looked back forward and kept getting into my music.

A moment or two later I just looked over at them with my biggest, sweetest smile and sure enough the passenger tried to sneak another look at me... I smiled and waved, while thinking to myself, Someday you little snots, Someday, you are going to be old too. I made sure to have a good laugh about it. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I like blue purples more anyway :D

Tina - :D the dye was fading out in both of those, but lately I've been concentrating on growing 4" roots in case I needed to be assessed as 'sick' so I'm currently 'dark mouse' with dirty peroxide streaks :lol:

I was useless at football at school and always got put in goals. I really don't understand the logic of that. Surely having someone who is good at football is a better choice for goal? Goalkeeper is a pretty important position on a football field - isn't it? :roll:
