animal: omg llamas!
I don't have the icon for this combo of amazing, mindblowing, de-ja vu -ing thing.

I just found it on (BBC) IPlayer:

The edition of World Book Club in which I WAS IN THE AUDIENCE and got to ask Pterry a Question.  I'm the one In-Studio Question Person:

Snappy Address.  World Book Club - BBC World Service - Broadcasting House - 2006

He remembered me at a signing at Forbidden Planet (the semi-legendry London sci-fi shop, not the catalogue people) and when I said that the podium was too high (it is, I am a Cuddy-ish 4'11") and he suggested a stepladder perhaps pink and sparkly (rather like Cuddy's)*.  I am the person asking about Twoflower.

ETA: I just found a picture of Pterry looking most Dad-ish and cried.  Dad always said he was the stunt double.


*[I even slipped it into a fan-fic Five Ways Francesca Vecchio Tried to Get a Date with Fraser, One Way She Didn’t, and How She Got Her Cake and Ate It]

ETA: it isn't actually in that one (wtf) but the rest of her pink and sparkly office kit is. I think that the Rays found it uncomfortable when they "conversed" in the supply closet. It dug a Ray in the back... where? DAM They used it to wedge the closet door while they did some conversin' in Illinois Roadkill Cookbook


Also. semi-random quote :
Only in Our Dreams We Are Free. The Rest of the Time We Need Wages


"If you trust in yourself ... and believe in your dreams ... and follow your star ... you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren't so lazy." - Wee Free Men
