The class was learning about some revolt in which some peasants had wanted to stop being peasants and, since the nobles had won, had stopped being peasants really quickly.

Can mayhaps be an honorary member til I get there?

Am just this moment back to Brisbane from the Australian Discworld Convention (Nulllus Anxientas III) and I have to say it was all terribly exciting. :D We even got to hear a fair bit of Snuff. :lol: And my husband won't stop singing the Hedehog Song. But now I am motivated by several reasons to see if we can't start our own Broken Drummers here in Brisbane. So what say you Brisbane folk? Shouldn't we get together? :?:

If other people are out there who are in a Broken Drummers or similair DW based social groupings and have useful advice I would be interested to hear from you too.

Feel free to im me.

would love a meetup. Just found I missed out on the Convention AND Terry, and can't believe it. The Arts Theatre in Brisbane said they were having, on 8 May, Nanny Ogg's Cook Book as a play, I believe. But when clicking on further details, there's nothing about it that I can see.

Anyhow. Would LOVE to meet up. I'm actually at that glitzy glamour place further south, but the train's good. :)

Maybe he or she lives at Surfer's Paradise or Broadbeach.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Del-ishush Umm yes. My husband informed me of that happy fact. Have you ever been to any? They meet at the BCC Library and ... watch things. Yup, no lively discussion just watch things. Last month they watched Inferno [Brigadier Story of course]. Now, I am by no means down on the Dr Who fan, but I had just expected more. I went with my menfolk once and no one really talked to you and I felt like an intruder. Not the warm hearted openness of Discworld fanatics. Or maybe I caught them on a bad day.

But yes, definite cross-pollination opportunities. Maybe also Pulp Fiction in Edward St?

Welcome Ashwin, it would be great if you could come along. You could even BYO Dr Who fans. I am. :lol:
