ok, this one came about because a certain esteemed afper commented on my previous two on irc today and then just a single line of chat from that afper sparked what follows (fx : pours lots of 20ps in the the fine pot)

btw the Hugma Sutra is the idea (and by now goodness knows how many pages) of Mike who some of the ircing community will have 'encountered' by now.

I never wanted to go to Star Trek conventions
I I always wanted to be a Discworld fan

leaping from punt to punt
as we crawl down the rivers of mighty Oxbridge

the dragons,the filkers, the mighty bookseller

with my best pals at my side

we'd sing, sing, sing

I'm a discworld fan, and I'm okay.
I sleep all night and I irc all day.

chorus :
He's a discworld fan, and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he ircs all day.

I collect the books, and some clarecraft
I went to both the cons.
Last year I went a camping
And picked up some old thongs

he collects ...

I stand in queues, to get signed firsts
I like to paint strange folk
I put on leather clothing
And hang around in barns

he stands ..

I chat online. I hug n flirt
with folk around the globe
I study Hugma Sutra
and risk a gentle probe

chorus :
[talking]
What's this? Wants to met them in RL Oh, My!
And I thought you were so independent <g>
[singing]
He's a pratchett fan, and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he ircs all day.
He's a discworld fan and he's okaaaaay.
He sleeps all night and he ircs all day.

I'll shut up for a while now and get my coat
