Re: Positions wanted.....

OMG. When you say "local" paper, Shani, just HOW local?

The reason I ask is that my SIL is desperately trying to get her son (a 17 year old) to get his act together.

Too spooky.

Re: cold callers

One day after a particularly long session of obscene phonecalls I got desperate. No whistle or anything else like that I spotted the smoke detector. They have test buttons. :devil:

Re: cold callers

Wish they would bring in the "Do not call" lists here. In one day recently I got 3 telemarketers and one door to door girl. The door to door girl was the final one of the day and I just looked at...

Re: A bit of trivia

7. (Completely off the top of my head) I seem to remember reading about a space factor. She utilised the hill to allow enough room.

Re: Collecting Highlight - All the Weyrs of Pern audio recording by Anne McCaffrey

Oh I got goosebumps listening to that clip. It's the one part of that book I hate the most. I cry every time. I know it is coming, exactly when it is coming but I always cry.

I see what you...

Re: How do people pronounce...

I've always pronounced it Rissa. And for Rhys I just used Riss. I have no idea if it is right or not.

Re: 9 Star League Women

I voted for Isthia. I would have loved to have had a grandmother like her. There is something very comforting about her combined with an amazing strength of character.

Re: Loo Cow?

The Muskies are from the Planet Pirate series. They were hunted and eaten by the Heavyworlders. This was a bad thing because the so called "civilised world" had all converted to vegetarianism.

Re: Enviornment and Plastic bags.

Most of the time I use cloth bags. The only real exception is if I am getting something that might leak, like meat from the local supermarket. Occassionally I slip up and forget to take the cloth...

It's fascinating, Ghyle. I look forward to reading more on it. I see what you mean about a class structure and the concept of capitalism. I am a bit of a Marxist freak myself and always dreamed...

Re: Anne & Todd

I always wanted to apply sociological and anthropological theory to Anne's work when I was studying but I was never game. I was a HD tart. Who wrote this, Ghyle? Was it you? and is this all of it?

Re: Question from Jody about Anne

A nice simple answer: When I read Anne's work I am no longer on earth. I am on Pern or in a Brainship or another of Anne's Worlds. She takes me away from "Real Life" for a while.

Re: Favourite aliens in planet pirates/Dinosaur planet

The Lethi are a group of furry things that tend to stick in their group to a lump of sulfur. Don't ask me why. There isn't a lot of detail about them.

I like pretty much all the aliens. I...

Re: Dragonsong--Your First Thoughts

Funny you should mention the large print. I gave DS to my then 11 year old to read and she adored it but when I gave her number two she was intimidated by the smaller font.
