Want to see Nobby as the Discworlds first "the bachelor"...
Maybe, somewhere in that story, put in an Igor, Foul ol' Ron and Carrot as well (I mean, it's never gonna last between him and Angua - let's face it).
Would love to see Nobby doing a rose ceremony :lol:
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

I must say that I did enjoy seeing the young Vetinari in the Assassins' Guild in Night Watch. And my favourite bit of Pyramids is that beginning bit at the Guild. :)

Me to, it gave a fascinating insight into his character. He was always set apart from his fellows even then, wasn't he? I do find him one of Pratchett's more inspiring 'I-wish-I-had-thought-of-him' first characters!

I love reading about Vetinari.
He's so devious that I'm relieved he's not real ... I think ... although it's a shame that we have to suffer mime artists.
Perhaps we could adopt some of Vetinari's 'Laws'?
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

I'd love to see another Lu'Tze book, maybe set in the Empire or the mountains? The early history of Lu'Tze perhaps?

Another one I'd love to see is a book about/closely involving one of Vetinari's dark clerks, the whole spying thing is interesting!

Well I thought I'd managed to shake it, but thank you Jan, now I'm stuck with it. I couldn't stand Russ Abbot. :x

I'm no fan Tony - he pushed in front of me at the duty free perfume counter at Gatwick once! :x

I nearly didn't recognise him - not until after I gave him a really filthy look. He's really bald in RL! :twisted:

That's what I've heard about him - that he was very rude. I can't remember who it was now, but someone I know saw him and asked for his autograph. It did it but really grudgingly. :evil:
