Ach crivens!

For those who've been visiting this desert wasteland since the old days (last year la) and noticed my Catch:22 preview... Well.. I haven't finished it yet (August 2009 is still some time off). I think I went insane for awhile and had to start reading childrens' books to compensate. Having said that... Childrens' books aren't half bad.

I just finished reading "The Wee Free Men" about a month ago and I must say it was lots of fun! Not quite as dark or clever as the "normal" (as far as worlds being held on the backs of elephants standing on the back of a turtle that swims through space can be considered normal) Discworld stuff, but still worth a good few laughs.

Most of my favourite bits involve Feegles talking.. Here are some examples:
-"They can tak' oour lives but they cannae tak' oour troousers!"
-"Ach, stick it up yer trakkans!"
-"I could murder a kebab! "
-"Ach, here's a headful o' dandruff for ye, ye bogle"
-"Crivens! I kicked meself in ma ain heid!"

Interestingly, wikipedia lists their "see alsos" as Braveheart and the Smurfs (come to think about it now, the smurfs kinda freak me out... A happy community of little topless blue men with only one old fogey and one woman... Someone once suggested that they may be gay)

I'm to the second book now... "A Hatful of Sky". Will post something about it here if it's worth it and if I can be bothered.

Argh... Saturday's over already.. Tomorrow's MONDAY
As the Nac Mac Feegle would say: "Oh waily, waily, waily!"
