Good god, not again...

They're back in full force! Run away! Run away while you still can! Comment or I'll hit you all with sticks. Sharp ones.


The Very Secret Diary of Delphine Angua von Uberwald
(Men at Arms)

Day 1: Forced to leave Sto Lat. Less than a day’s journey to Ankh-Morpork. Unfortunately, think I may have left candle burning in shrine to Oz, from Buffy. Damn. On the plus side, skipping town every few weeks proves more effective way of evading credit card bills.

Day 2: Arrived in Ankh-Morpork. Hopefully, can crash for a few weeks and find a job. Certainly will not end up finding my own niche in the city with a group of misfit coworkers that are as messed up as I am, eventually finding friendship and love in the 17-year old heir to the throne who would be the first to truly accept me for what I am and eventually put his life on the line to save me and keep me beside him and be honest and pure and kind and good natured and redheaded and … and while I’m at it, I want a new pair of bowling shoes.

Day 3: Went job hunting. Nearly all referred me to Guild of Seamstresses. Must be the only woman in this town that doesn’t know how to sew.

Later: Oh. So that’s the Guild of Seamstresses.

Day 4: Saw poster: “The City Watche Needs Men! Be A Man In The City Watche!” Decided to go for it, as it reminded me of the song from “Mulan”.

Later: Was showed around the city by Corporal Carrot. Nice name, Carrot. Won’t ask. Cute, though. Unfortunately, the “truncheon in his pocket” actually was a truncheon in his pocket. Stupid watchmen.

Day 5: Becoming more and more difficult to hide lycanthropic tendencies from other watchmen. Dog collar tan line annoyingly conspicuous. Oh, yeah, and we found some dead people. That’s about it.

Day 6: Went to breakfast and on city tour with Carrot. Envisioned him bursting into song and felt strange disturbance in the force. Like a thousand of Priscilla's friends crying out in terror. Odd.

Later: Snooped in on Carrot's box of letters. Refuse to play second-fiddle to some 60-year-old dwarf bint named "Minty". Furthermore, decided relationship with Carrot impossible. Not as much the whole human/werewolf thing, but the realization that "Angua Ironfoundersson" sounds really stupid.

Day 7: Gave new meaning to phrase “investigating undercover”. Somewhat honored to be first Discworld character to get any. Go me. Anyway, thousands of girls go into mourning. New hit single: "Never Gonna Get To Be The Future Queen of Ankh-Morpork Blues". Want to kill something.

Later: Upon waking, ran away. Stupid plot devices.

Day 8: Dead. Damn.

Later: Back. Still curious as to what I was wearing when informing Carrot I was alive again. Tiny hand towel left conveniently on morgue slab not v. amusing.

Current Mood: amused amused
Current Music: "Cop Song", Urinetown

Also...

I keep meaning to ask you about your Yahoo Messenger screen name. I understand if you don't want to share it, but I finally downloaded the program and I'm feeling a strong need to gratuitously praise someone. ;)

(I'm inkblotproductions, BTW.)

*sigh* That was great, I was laughing a lot. I hope I woke my brother up as the stupid git tends to sleep in to 1:30 most of the time. The illustrations were an added plus. Me gusto!

Golly, I was just thinking about the Mulan reference and Donnie Osmond. I mean what if HE signed up for the watch? How would the rest of the Watch accept him? I mean would the make fun of the fact that he's whitened his teeth so many times that there's now just an illusion of him having two teeth, one on the top, the other on the bottum, strips of white going across?

I would.

That's because you're a silly baka who doesn't read the wonderful works of Terry Pratchett

Re:

I have to finish my summer reading books:

Frankenstein
Picture of Dorian Grey
Taming of the Shrew
Medea
and a book I still haven't bought, mhh

I'm halfway done Taming of the Shrew, I've read Medea several times. I've read about 50 pages of Picure of DG. So I'm not too bad off.
