    I made some choc chip cookies today and then couldn't be bothered cooking dinner as well so I just ate cookies for dinner.

    Did you at least have some milk with them?
    If so, that was an acceptable dinner.

    This one time I mentioned to my friends that it'd be fun to have a nerf battle and we all ended up spending like $500 on Nerf weapons over the course of a couple of months and now we have an enormous death match shootout planned with like 10-20 people planning on showing up

    oh wait that's not nerdy

    that's rad as hell

    The Princess Bride is the most perfect book/movie combination.

    Both are excellent. Both are good adaptations of each other. Knowledge of both enhances the pleasure of each.

    I guess this is the benefit of having the author of both being both a good writer with a sense of story and an Oscar winning screenplay writer?

    Not if it's the super tense, both sides warily watching the other while they scrounge for ammo and reload, part. That's pretty great.

    I'd actually quite like a new Moist book

    the one where he tackles taxes

    mostly because it gives us a chance to see more of Vetinari and he is the best

    I thought Stale's 8-bit tatts were on his arms?

    And how can they not have Mysst's SCIENCE tattoo in the list. They have some idiot that first got a tattoo of the Blogger logo, and then got one over the top of that of the Wordpress logo? Too dumb to learn their lesson the first time?

    I freaking love the Moist books. I'm really quite sad that he's coming in at the end of all things.

    for some reason I read that as kidnapped

    that sounded much more exciting

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    Yeah, that kind of happens. I was in Half Price Books when I discovered that he had written another book about Moist. Too loudly I exclaimed: "*gasp* Moist!" It was a mixture of reactions from those around me, especially in the lady across the aisle in the religion section. I don't think "moist" is a good Christian word.

    You gotta start the tradition my family has, every Christmas the latest Pratchett book is a present for my dad, and by god we will all bug him to finish reading it so we can get a turn.
    Side effect of this: Christmas is going to be fucking ruined when Pratchett goes. D:

    That is an excellent tradition! I grew up in a family of non readers (what. the. hell.) So the image you've painted is all sparkly with Christmas magic in my head.

    The latter part of the tradition might disappear, as almost all of us have smartphones or kindles, so it will become much less obnoxious to buy our own copies of the book quietly and read it in our own time instead of waiting for others to finish.

    Christmas ruined. :(
    Christmas stopped mattering to me at all once my grandfather died and everyone revealed how much they despised each other but were just being nice the whole time out of respect for him.
    So I love hearing about other people's chocolate-and-honey laced wonderful Christmas times.
