Re: The Last Post Thread, 2.0

Oh, man - where've you been caving? Haven't been in years. Long enough back that I was less than a hundred pounds, always got shoved through the tight spots first, since if I couldn't make it, no one else was going to.

Last post before I go off and sulk 'cause there's no caves around here.

Re: The Last Post Thread, 2.0

Last post before I crawl up into that little narrow end of the attic and try to find out what in the *hell* is stomping around up there sounding like a herd of bison.

If it's as big as it sounds, might be last post, period... :twisted:

Re: What are you reading right now?

Night Siege , about a bunch of well-documented UFO sightings on the east coast in the eighties, by some guys I never heard of and two of who's names I can't pronounce anyway. Also reading a collection of Daphne DeMaurier horror-thriller type stories, the name of which escapes me. I'm always reading...

Re: Favorite Monty Python Sketches and/or Scenes

The knights that say "nee", and the dead parrot sketch are the two that always come to mind, also the killer rabbit.

Re: Pre-Posthumous Pratchet aPpreciation Page

Have you ever read any non-fiction on the precept of a ´Benevolent Dictator' ? Not really - I've always thought that it was a possibility, only if you've got a good one, what are the odds of getting another? And if your government is set up for a dictator, and you lose the good one, you're kind of ...

Re: Worst book ever written..

I love Shakespeare, Satre and Wordsworth I can mostly live without, and I rather like Byron. I actually made it through Middlemarch, but I was in a really weird mood. And I cannot remember a thing about it other than it was full of characters that I could never keep straight.

Re: Pre-Posthumous Pratchet aPpreciation Page

"Hogfather" was on the weird, I can hardly get reception, odd movies channel a couple of times a few months back...pretty strange (but that's hardly a surprise!) Since "Weird Sisters" is already set up as a play, has anyone done that yet? "Colour of Magic" has not made ...

Oh duh - shows you the shape my brain's in - I thought he meant the idea for the thread was crappy, but then he saw that some good stuff was posted...

Re: What are you reading right now?

I saw an animated version of Animal Farm (what the hell they were thinking is a mystery to me - obviously not for kids, as dark and depressing as the book, but a kids sees "cartoon"...) when I was about 9. I cried for Boxer. Not a cheery book.

Re: Picked up The God Delusion yesterday

Geez, you do have a long commute...for which I *totally* understand the reasons. LOL at the TV antennas in the attic - a friend of mine lived next to a Christian Reformed minister when she was growing up - they had a TV (the minister's family) so they could "keep an eye out" for ungodlines...
