It’s 0100 in Sydney, I’m bored, tired and waiting on work email, so I was popping through a few blogs and saw that Lawdog via LaFemme had found a Discworld quiz. Since I just finished reading Soul Music on the airplane from Perth, I figured why not…

After the last three weeks, I feel more like the Librarian than any other- Juggling too many pieces and too many potentials for things to go wrong… and if I see another banana anytime soon; well, I’m NOT going to be responsible. That seemed to be the only fruit available in the hotel on most mornings. Oh yeah, and I have NOT been good natured either…

Well, after three weeks of Cricket, I STILL don’t get it…


Which Discworld Character are you like (with pics)
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as Carrot Ironfounderson

You are Captain Carrot Ironfounderson of the City Watch in the greatest city on the Disc, Ankh-Morprok! A truly good natured, honest guy, who knows everyone, and is liked by all. Technically a dwarf, but only by adoption. You’d rather not be reminded that you are the true heir to the throne, but that does explain why people naturally follow your order.

Commander Samuel Vimes




Lord Havelock Vetinari

Gun musings…

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense The sword is more important that the shield and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental. (John Steinbeck)

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he’s too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.

America is not at war, the US Military is at war. America is at the mall.

When the seconds count, the cops are just minutes away. Shoot first, THEN call 911, your odds of survival are MUCH greater that way.

A reporter did a human interest piece on the Texas Rangers years ago, the Ranger was carrying a 1911, which the reporter recognized, and asked, “Why do you carry a .45?” The Ranger’s laconic anwer, “Because they don’t make a .46.”

An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

A Sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented to him, “Sheriff, I see you have your pistol, are you expecting trouble?” “No Ma’am, if I was expecting trouble, I’d have brought my rifle.”

And lastly, beware the man with only one gun, most of the bluing worn away; he probably knows how to use it (my Grandpa sure as hell did).

  1. i was Commander Vines.

    Sorry I haven’t commented much. Between Dad’s little episode, my brothers surgery on his leg post motorcycle accident and my daughters pregnancy. . it’s been stressful to say the least.

    Glad you are hanging in there.

  2. You scored as a Commander Samuel Vimes
    You are Samuel Vimes! Captain of Ankh-Morpork’s city Watch! You are a knight, married to the very wealthy, noble lady Sybil Ramkin. You often walk the streets at night, and are able to tell where you are by the feel of the cobbles under your boots. You always do what is right – that is, what needs to be done – to keep the city safe, even when it seems bad.

    I have no clue what all of this means besides that I now need a sex change.

  3. Hang in there Scully… RT, Vimes is the ultimate pessimist… THe glass is not only half empty, it’s cracked down the side too 🙂
    FINALLY home after a 28 hour day from Sydney to here.

  4. Hey Mon, What happened to Scully’s blog? I can’t seem to access her from any link. Got any ides as to what’s up?
