Is there a thread yet? Am I being redundant redundantly? I was just checking the list of attendees which is now 24 over the "limit" of 800 and saw tailing there at the end POOHCARROT! :)

Just in time! :lol:

It'll cost me an arm, a leg and probably my spleen too, but as I've never seen TP in the flesh, it'll be worth it. :P

Oh I'm so glad and I'll be able to meet you! Yes, it isn't cheap that's for sure but worth every cent and you WILL meet Terry and have a chance to sit down and talk. Sign up for all the klatches that you can so that you have a chance for a semi-private sit-down with him. They do a separate klatch for people flying from overseas.

Think fire side chat with about 10-12 people. they will post sign up sheets in a central area and it is first come first served.

At the USDWCon in Tempe I was in one with Bernard Pearson and most of the stamp forum people there. Was a lot of fun. You ask any question you want and they are obligated to answer, espc if you bring a Banananannanana Daqurie or a Bannnannaaanna with any alcohol in the vicinity Terry will be your BFF! :lol:

Yes the klatches are great (see coffee klatch) generally it's a pot of coffee and a small group of people. It's your chance to ask questions that you may not have a chance to ask due to Terry being surrounded a great deal of the time. Unless he is wearing his Silas T. Firefly badge and then you leave him alone.

Oooh! I could read my Gloob of Thannook story. :D

Oh man, there are some travel stories I could tell. I could tell my Timothy Leary story.

I've moved this topic the Terry Pratchett forum, where it's less likely to get buried.

Just booked the Hilton for 5 nights! Arriving a day early to get over jet lag.
I couldn't book before because I didn't realise there weren't meant to be gaps in the credit card number. :roll:

In similar fashion.
"For shopping," says he,
"I detest with a passion.
A pink tartan kilt
and a red woollen sweater
Is all I require.
There's nought I like better".

So who's going to lend me a pink tartan kilt/skirt and a red sweater, then?
Size L or XL sweater, large skirt/kilt.
If I'm going to read the Gloob and it's a competition, I'm going to try my best to win. (my game fetish!) (see chapter 3 of the Gloob of Thannook)

If you're very, very good* I might be persuaded to knit you a customised red sweater - knitting is one of my less obvious talents although I do of course have a better-known affinity for pointy things... :twisted:

As for the kilt...

From Pinkkilt.com.

Or you could get one of these on eBay and adapt it.
