:lol: Cwute, Ragnar.

I think my main claim to fluffybunnydom is my sugar "habit"

My partner has severely restricted me. Only one packet of red frogs bought when we do the weekly shopping, and any stray wrappers found around the house will lead to a stern talking to, followed by tickling. I hate tickling.

Aye, I have read them all, both in English and German. It is a pity that a lot of the humour does not translate into German though. Those that only read German are really missing something. "Wee free men" for example. HOW do you translate "whailly whailly whailly" into German? Or the fact that "The Wee Frees" are the "Free church of Scotland", which, I have said on another page, are as "fundy" as you can get. To the extent of not allowing pictures or photographs in thier house, ran, and still do, the Scottish temperence society. (A losing horse if you ever heard of one);) . They will only alow bibles (thier particular translation), and other "approved" religious books in the house, or even be read at all, by thier members, no news papers etc etc. THEN read Prattchet. :lol: :lol: :lol:.

Christians are irrational. I may not be a Christian, but at least I'm rational! (Well, most of the time, anyway.)

Aye, I love her theory on "headology". Thing with Prattchet is, he seems very perceptive, or well researched on his characters. As ex Police, both civil and Military, I can assure you Vimes is exactly right. Between them Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax could be my Granny and Great Granny, in attitude to magic and life.
Tell me though, I my self, and up to now every one I have spoken to, hates "Pyramids", and "Moving pictures". I do not know why, but they are the only two books by any author that I could not finish. Is it something with European humour, or is it the same in the States/Canada?

I've read both, and I quite like them. The lead character is essentially the same in both books, they're not exactly his best works, and they heavily reference popular/screen culture. I think the fact that they're so referential may be it. If you don't know the references (mostly US films, etc), then it would fall a bit flat.

I love Grimes as well. Fantastic character. And Angua. I think Feet of Clay is one of my favourites.
