jk rowling: there are only four types of people in the world - smart, brave, evil and miscellaneous. a magic hat tells you which one you are when you are 11 years old, and it will never change

harry potter fan: omg i'm such a miscellaneous

“He was never at ease with politics, where good and bad were just, apparently, two ways of looking at the same thing or, at least, were described like that by the people who were on the side Vimes thought of as ‘bad’.
It was all too complicated and, where it was complicated, it meant that someone was trying to fool you.”

Today I set out to memorize the titles of all the Discworld books in order. I've made it to twenty (Hogsfather, which was over of the first I read) so far.

All 41 book titles are now more or less memorized. I say "more or less" because there are still a couple (ok, 4-5) that are intermittently hard to recall. A little more practice should do the trick.

“There was, there always was, at the start and finish…the Code. They lived by the Code. You followed the Code, and you became part of the Code for those who followed you. The Code was it. Without the Code you weren’t a hero. You were just a thug in a loincloth.”

Painted Susan Sto Helit (Death's granddaughter in Discworld) this morning.

Three different types of black (grey cloak, purple skirt and corset and sharp highlights on the boots) with three highlight layers. Two or three highlights on the skin. And two highlights on the white hair. The black hair, metal and wood only got one highlight.

Now to work out how to do nice cobble stones!

“Lancrastians liked clocks, although they didn't bother much about actual time in any length much shorter than an hour. If you needed to boil an egg, you sang fifteen verse of 'Where Had All The Custard Gone?' under your breath. But the tick was a comfort on long evenings.”

Another book behind me, I finished "Guards! Guards!" by Terry Pratchett.

This was actually my first that I bought last year in

Great book, Great story - but I will admit that I probably would not have picked it up any other way.
