my twittering (birthday drinks, post midnight; astronomy; whitewashing; Terry Pratchett interview!)

December 13th, 2008 (11:32 pm)

current mood: happy

01:06 would walk 500 miles. #

03:00 waiting for a taxi. Don't want to walk 500 miles after all. #

10:54 forgot to look at the moon last night: #

12:39 Re-reading Pam Noles essay "Shame": #

15:21 At Terry Pratchett interview! #

15:41 pTerry is being quized on Discworld trivia. They say he'll lose the degree if he gets them wrong :-) He got them very nearly all right. #

16:13 pTerry would like to think the character most like himself is Commander Vimes. #

16:15 The Wee Free Men's language is part Old Scots, part Glaswegian, and part gibberish. The turtle's sex is "yes". We're on audience questions. #

16:29 People in front of me are relaxing. I can see Terry Pratchett at last. #

16:33 They're giving out presents: signed books. One for a birthday girl, one for most begging letter! And one for the sex of the turtle question. #

16:37 Terry now quizzing the interviewer. I think so he can get an honorary degree from Unseen University, but it's very hard to hear. #

16:40 - Pratchett is the very far away person in red & blue (his robes). #

22:41 Oh wow. Beautiful moonbow. #

22:45 - Astronomy for beginners: What's that? That's the sky, Dave. #

KBKarma on twitter was better with the quotes, and PixieVonDust twittered during the interview too, but you can't easily link to a group of entries.

Nae king! Nae quin! Nae laird!

Shame, that. But thanks to following assorted links from your LJ, I've also sent WOSSNAME a feature on Lady Twatterby's Discworld stuff on Deviantart... ~hearts ye~
