Comments about your picture(s): Me having dinner with some friends

Discworld and Pterry favourites list (you can have more than 1 if you want!)
Book: Interesting Times, Small Gods, Going Postal, all the watch books, Hogfather
Favourite passage: This at least was true. Rincewind could scream for mercy in niniteen languages, and just scream# in another forty-four.
#This is important. Inexperienced travellers might think that 'Aargh!' is universal, but in Betrobi it means 'highly enjoyable' and in Howondaland it means, variously' I would like to eat your foot', Your wife is a big hippo' and 'Hello, Thinks Mr Purple Cat.' One particular tribe has a fearsome reputation for cruelty merely because prisoners appear, to them, to be shouting 'Quick! Extra boiling oil!'

Character: Vimes, Ridcully,Death, Vetinari
Song: A Wizard's Staff Has a Knob on the End
Pterry Quote: My experience in Amsterdam is that cyclists ride where the hell they like and aim in a state of rage at all pedestrians while ringing their bell loudly, the concept of avoiding people being foreign to them. My dream holiday would be a) a ticket to Amsterdam b) immunity from prosecution and c) a baseball bat :-)

Quote from a book: They say the heat and the flies here can drive a man insane. But you don't have to believe that, and nor does that bright mauve elephant that just cycled past.
