Finished Wings yesterday, best of the bunch, haven't laughed so much in ages - stopping at the red light in a spaceship -and terarily smiled too - 'you mean the little people Grandad used to talk about?'

Loved it!

The Thing in the Nomes books reminded me of the Toad in the Tiffany books. Its/his main purpose seems to have been as a narrative device to explain what was going on. :D

Finished Good Omens today, this one took me a while and I found it a bit slow in places but it was very rewarding in the end and I do really like it now, thinking back. :) Lots of great characters. Is there still a film/mini-series coming of this? It was very visual.

Sad/happy for you Dave.... You have done well.

On the bright side.... you will be as excited as the lot of us as Snuff approaches.

.... "on the same page" so to speak :wink: ...... Boom! Boom!

Ohhhhhh nonononononononononononononononono I did not say we were on the same SANITY levels.... that would require scientific measuring and stuff and loads of ink blot pictures and men in white coats..... and if anyone lets THEM in we are all done for.
