Discworld methinks. But on the subject of WoW good luck for when you enter the Kitchen of Doom...
Despite the temporal distortion field that makes it The Day That Never Ends, eventually... it does.
Xmas cheers and beers!
How English Lit. has changed.
When I did it, within the last decade, speculation of a writer's mental state or proccupations was very much avoided - as in "There's *no* way you can know that for certain so don't go there and concentrate on the effect achieved (or not) by the writing)".
Season's (whatever the season) Greetings: Mary Christmas had a little lamb/that I hope you find delicious.

So the gift for description is a family thing.
Oh, and: buy someone you love an instrument for Christmas: DIY music will get us through this economic turbulence.
I'vealways wondered if use in multiple use of colons in a single sentence was punctual sin but, hey!: if an award winning writer on words can use them with aplomb..!: I may as well imitate!
Merry Xmas (where X = appropriate festival) all!
Vote for the same word! So obvious. And, to quote Mr Tiso,
"Credit crunch"... meh

For the above, I guess I was speechless...
Dude! Stuff! Cool!
Welcome back Keith!
See what happens when you don't blog an election..?
On the National/Act policy tango, I think National is more than happy to have someone pushing them on right wing issues as moving to the centre would've been an uncomfortable necessity to many in the party and its supporters.
And if National takes the teeth out of a right wing policy it can say "See: we are centre right." And if they go along with it they can say ""See: we are centre right."
Act wants the action and they're getting but are going to have to watch they don't talk themselves into a corner if they're raising the volume on Issues National knows are poll poison.
Sweetie, if you can get into his house then the thing to do is to paint the underside of all his furniture with natural yoghurt. It's a slow but insidious revenge.
If you can't get into his house, you'll just have to fill his car with Space Invader.
This is not something I advocate, I hasten to add. I'm just saying.
Well, I was going to suggest a 'Garage Sale 7am Saturday' sign in front of your noisy next-doors as a final act but I see you're an experienced hand in suburban guerilla tatics...
