I went to see Terry Pratchett last Friday at the Chiswick Book Festival and he gave a speech and answered questions at the end, even when they tried to stop him he carried on asking for more questions, I love it that he really appreciates his fans and whats to hear from them. Also got a signature on I Shall wear Midnight, may have made another fan out of my mother who came with me as all my discworld mates couldnt get the time off work (talk about billy no mates, I was fully prepared to go by myself but my mum said she would come to keep me company and didnt know quite how to turn her down, :lol: ) Just so as I dont frighten you all off my posts wont always be this long. Anyway Im glad that sanity is not essential as I lost that a long time ago, FYI my favourite character is Commander Vimes and hes my mate on facebook, :lol: :lol: Also I was directed here from someone else who was at Chiswick, so many thanks.

Ah - but do the forum rules contain a 'Sanity' clause?
