I was looking through the west wing of my Library this evening.... Okay the left hand end of my TP bookshelf.... and I took down Interesting Times and read the dedication inscribed within.
Does anyone else have a clever play on words from Sir TP, giving a small enlightenment to the man. I'll explain...
I stood in line with my shiny new copy of Interesting times and stepped forward to the man in the hat. He looked up and said what do you enjoy doing, I said I was a "LARPer" (Live Action Role PLayer), he then quickly scratched away and showed me the the dedication. I was so in awe of the moment of being addressed by one of my heroes that I suffered from a sudden mind blank. He said, "Where's that from?". I read it and couldn't get it.
Here is what he wrote, "Hey Sarge, we've got a live role-player". He then had to explain that it came from the movie "Aliens".
This quick inscription showed me the following;
His mind must be working overtime cross referencing at the speed of dark.
He liked the movie "Aliens", so cool....
He knew what LARP was/is
I was an incoherent gibbering wreck
Sorry for not getting Terry...
Anyone else with strange/surreal dedications?
Just because we can, doesn't mean we should........ "OOoo look big red shiny button" Click Click Click
