Hello smilies/icon_biggrin.gif
I'm Antiq, a 59 year old Irish mom with two grown-up children.
I like reading (a lot), gardening, drawing and painting when the mood takes me, music (mostly classical) and messing about on my computer. I'm a huge fan of Terry Pratchett (RIP smilies/icon_sad.gif), Sherlock, Firefly, Star Trek, LoTR, Thrones, Final Fantasy and costume dramas, among other things. Basically I'm a geek who was born a bit too early smilies/icon_lol.gif
I have a little rescued terrier mutt called Hobo, and several spiders I have decided to call pets because they refuse to be evicted. Besides, they nom on flies, which is fine by me.

Favourite quote:

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”

― Carl Sagan, Cosmos

LOL I hear you there. I re-read them often, so although I'm sad he's gone and that there won't be any more, I am grateful that there are quite a lot of them. I'm trying to collect them all in the bright covers and all in the black covers, just for obsessions sake redface I think his daughter had his go-ahead to write in the Discworld if she wanted to, and having played her video game she's got every bit the same wicked sense of humor as he did. It will be interesting to see if she does write something in the next few years. HaHA, the capture for this comment is "dragon with matches" which makes me think of Lady Sybil's dragons lol.

Oh absolutely, they're all fabulous. I do love DEATH the most though, and Susan tickles me. Gotten very fond of Sam Vines too, and Vetinari. I'm very much looking forward to the last installment of Tiffany Aching, I think it gets released in October?

Thank you smile I was a bit worried nobody was going to respond in the beginning, but they all came out overnight (for me). I definitely found it interesting how many people who's names I know (like yours) have worked in libraries. And all the best people are Pratchett fans! Favourite character?
