I love all the names the girls give themselves because they're trying to be witches!

What would you pick for your witch name?

Ooh, good question. I'll have to think about that. I use 'Cassiona' as my Weight Watchers pseudonym, 'cos it's a Blake's 7 planet (prize if you know - without looking it up - in which episode it's mentioned), and that could be quite a good witch name if I can't come up with anything else.


Rats. It's not even in the Programme Guide!

No, I can’t think either!

Dunno what I’d have for a witch name, either. I shall have to think too. Is that our homework for next time?

Yes, let's do that! I'll try to come up with an alternative to Cassiona.
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

The names, the way they dress - Pratchett has such a great understanding not only of women, but teenage girls.

When I was 13, my 3 best friends and I formed a secret society called 'GASO' which stood for Ghosts, Astrology, Spirits and Occult. Our symbol was a gas can (they were American, so gas = petrol). We used to hold pretend seances and try to spend time in haunted houses. Which were in short supply, as our neighbourhood (just outside Jerusalem) was so brand new they were still building it!

You never know, there might have been a ghostly builder or two! I’m quite envious that you had 3 best friends to have a secret society with. At that age I was still hanging round with purely imaginary people (very secret society indeed, you might say.)

Aw, that's sad. M...Virn and I are your secret society now, aren't we?


Isn't that even sadder??
You're not sulking, I hope?

Yes. So secret we’ve plastered ourselves all over t’interweb…

This has been a lot of fun (and a welcome distraction), but I need to go now. Got some work to finish, and I've not yet had supper.

Who'd like to choose the next book?

I think we need badges. All the best secret societies have badges.

What's left of the ones you have, Stormy?
You're not sulking, I hope?

Same with work. I don’t mind which (witch?) book we read next. You pick.
 
M1795537 OC Virn
Sorry - forgot to add the quote - which of the Pratchetts you have left, Stormy...
You're not sulking, I hope?

I has Carpe Jugulum, The Last Continent, a few others… the Carpet People, but that isn’t Discworld…

Shall we continue the Witchery with Carpe Jugulum? (I was going to suggest 'Soul Music' but can't find my copy at the moment)
My views are my own.

How about 24th June?
And Stormy - if the trains are running and everything else is okay, do you fancy the Welwyn 2020 Walk on Sunday 27th June?

Yes and yes. If I’m bringing Magnus, I’ll drive down anyway. I don’t trust him not to pee (or worse) on the train!
