Reading Pratchett: Men At Arms - 17th Sept 2020
Travisina
Terry Pratchett - Men At Arms

Date: Thursday 17th September
Time: 7.45pm


We're revisiting Ankh Morpork for the second Discworld novel featuring Vimes and the City Watch.

The City Watch needs MEN! But what it's got includes Corporal Carrot (technicially a dwarf), Lance-constable Cuddy (really a dwarf), Lance-constable Detritus (a troll), Lance-constable Angua (a woman... most of the time) and Corporal Nobbs (disqualified from the human race for shoving)...

All welcome to join us in discussion of another Discworld book!

Good choice! Thanks, Travisina.
You're not sulking, I hope?

OK, I'm here, sort of, but I'm going try to put my poultry to bed before dark. Hope to be back by 7.45. See you!

Hi M-Virn - hope your chickens are okay?

I'm here, but once again haven't finished the book. About 2/3 of the way through, and LOVING it, though.

Iím here, but I finished the book ages ago, so Iíve probably forgotten bits again!

Super speedy Stormy!
I was planning to finish the book yesterday, but Life got in the way (again) - even though it's an easy and fun read.

Iíve got plenty of time for reading coming up. Local lockdown starts at midnight here.

Oh crumbs. How does that affect you? Apart from the obvious - are you allowed out at all?

I can go out as long as I donít socialise, but I can go to the pub. Until 10pm, when my solitary drinking is curtailed by the hospitality curfew. I can see as many people as I donít want to in the office, though, so thatís all right.
Also, our figures (Northumberland) are lower than a lot of the country, but weíre next to Newcastle so we just got lumped in. Logical as ever.

I have a mental image of M...OC Virn chasing chickens through green sand while we wait, though. At least thatís something to smile about Grin

That makes as much sense as anything else (scratches head).

I've got Jewish New Year coming up on Saturday & Sunday, and they *are* allowing synagogue services to take place under Covid regulations, ie in ours we can have up to 15 men & 10 women per service. So definitely more than 6.

Today my notice period ended, and I officially became unemployed. Went into the office to collect what was left of my stuff.

I saw that on my calendar. Happy New Year, as it were. Take what we can get, eh?

Hey! Back. The ducks think it's funny to stay up until I can't see them. Anyway, sorry it took so long. Where are we up to?
You're not sulking, I hope?

Did you swap it for something unpleasant for the next occupant of your locker to discover, or did you resist the temptation?

We havenít started, weíre just discussing Life And The Universe...

Golly, that's sad, Travisina. How long had you been there?
On the New Year thing, listen to 'Kippalive', they're enough to cheer anyone up.
Hi Stormy. So the naughty Geordies have to go home early? Can't see that happening without a fight.
You're not sulking, I hope?
 
Travisina
Sorry - on phone to Mum - back soon.

Well, I've read it, and am currently reading it aloud to my other half. Not easy with all the footnotes, changes of font etc. We're about half way.
You're not sulking, I hope?
