Aha! So that explains it. Aww, Del, sorry you had such a freaky experience. I wasn't there when the HC thread of that name started out so am not sure why it began, other than the fact that TP's books are in the third person and someone must have thought we could write updates in the same way. There was also a second person thread but not as popular. Third person contained everyone's updates. A bit like the frustration thread, what made you smile thread, what are you doing tomorrow thread and the how do you feel today thread all in one place... Just written in the third person. As he's put you off joining in, that ex date has a lot to answer for!
He'd have freaked me out, too!
