Hmmm, good question. I've looked around a little more and can't tell. I haven't collected the stamps in a long time, so I'm out of the loop.

So that's why we use those boring numbers on roundworld.... ;)

I sat down on a broken chair (which only creaked ominously, but didn't do anything else) at work yesterday. Seeing me jumping up again with a 'woaha' entertained the kids so much, I can easily imagine the hilarity had the chair collapsed.

Surely you would have to repeatedly sit on the chair until it broke? It wouldn't be fair on the kids otherwise.

@Tony, do you know if Sir Terry ever visits Wincanton during this event?

Yes, he usually does as it's not too far from where he lives. He might not be there the whole weekend, but I'm pretty sure he tries to make it. When I went in 2006, we got a sneak preview of The Hogfather movie (or at least one episode of it). That was the time when I was using the urinal in the town hall and Terry came and used the one next to me. NOT the time to get into a conversation. :lol:

:doh: This board is fussy about letting you quote too many quotes, so I thought I'd edited it enough to avoid that. Turns out I didn't edit it enough. :lol:

Don't worry, I am used to it - a lot of people try to claim my quotes as there own.

It's a price I have to pay for being me.

That must've been really awkward... did you get to talk to him afterwards though?

I have come really far with my social phobia, things are ticking along nicely still - but I think I would still be too nervous to talk to such an incredible man. I would probably just stand there stunned with my mouth open.

.... either that or I would inadvertantly start humping his leg like a crazed jack russell.

I sometimes think the grotto scene in Hogfather is based on a book signing. :lol:
