Well according to Ridcully then yes

Terry Pratchett in Night Watch wrote:'And that means they have to ask permission. The essential decencies must be maintained,' said Ridcully firmly. 'And I am the Master of this college!'
'On the subject of, er, decencies, sir, you are not in fact wearing-'
Ridcully strode through the open doors of the Library. 'What is going on here?' he demanded. The watchmen turned, and stared. A large blob of foam, which up until that point had been performing sterling service in the cause of the essential decencies, slipped slowly to the floor. 'Well?' he snapped. 'Haven't you lot seen a wizard before?'
A watchman snapped to attention and saluted. 'Captain Carrot, sir. We've, er, never seen so much of a wizard, sir.'
Ridcully gave him the slow blank stare used by those with acute uptakegrasping deficiency. 'What's he talkin' about, Stibbons?' he said out of the corner of his mouth.
'You're, er, insufficiently dressed, sir.'
'What? I've got my hat on, haven't I?'
'Yes, sir-'
'Hat = wizard, wizard = hat. Everything else is frippery.'
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Most interesting!

I don't know if it counts if it's somebody famous, but over on the Terry Pratchett L-space Wiki, I introduced the idea of Liza Minelli, as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, being the image of Sally von Humperdinck on the Girls Night Out in Thud!

Many Meetings

Anilori, chere amie! Comment va-s tu? Une estrelle benevolente illumine notre reconnaissance.....

And Facebook... I keep a presence there to check in occassionally with old workmates and Americans I know, including a wickedly clever cartoonist called Jen Babcock who does the sort of webcomic (about Los Angeles, seen through the jaundiced eyes of a would-be Satre from Paris called Mona).
il faut que tu l'aimerais, Anilori...

FB can be boring and populated by people with not much to say and a compulsion to spend all day saying it, so I checked for the presence of intelligent life by looking for a Terry Pratchett outpost, and found it. Which led me here...[/url]

Is a Shadow Ninja Cat the secret identity of a Meerkat? (it ducks down its hole and a few minutes later, emergess from a secret hole as a meerkat superhero...)

hi Tonyblack. The line about having been kicked off BBC boards is there in the interests of open up-frontness about having previous form, and is there to alert moderators... although on the L-Space wiki I am poacher-turned-gamekeeper and have moderation rights, as well as a licence to hit any Roundworld trolls I encounter in the soft spot on the back of the neck. (There is a special hooked weapon for this sort of thing, but as an Assassin you would know.) Discworld trolls have a special immunity on the wiki and are welcome, although a QWERTY keyboard designed for trolls is eight feet wide and has very big keys. Troll hands are not designed for texting, although Chrysophrase is believed to employ a literate gnome for this purpose.

I don't quite know what this is, certainly not French, but it's very pretty :P

Welcome here, considering how people here go off-topic at the drop of a hat, I think you'll fit right in! (I don't post a lot, mostly in the fanart thread when I have committed a drawing I'm satisfied with. I'm a show-off, what can you say :oops: )

Thank you for the comic, I'll have a look :)
