No - why cheapen the achievement? It's an even bigger achievement to get 1,000 Blams, or a multiple thereof.

The witches is a pretty cool book. But I don't think I've ever read something else by Dahl.

Yes, but that's Roald Dahl for you - wonderful mind, just what a child needs to get into reading. Personally, I feel that reading Dahl from 6-13 was great, followed up by a nice dose of Discworld. Perhaps I should have gotten into Robert Rankin sooner, but what the hey.
That thought is disgusting.
Hm, maybe he uses the same gum over and over again?Except at mealtimes, when he sticks it behind his ear. Just like Violet Beauregarde
One of my favourite memories of my grandfather is him reading "George's Marvellous Medicine" to me on my 6th birthday. the quote referring to George's grandma "and she had a small puckered up mouth, like a dog's bottom" really tickled him. I can still hear him chuckling in the background for the rest of the afternoon.
I also never read The Neverending Story, I just watched the movies. :o
I've seen the movie, but never read the books. Discworld, by Terry Pratchett is much better.

I never really bothered with the star rating system on WMP or iTunes. If I like the songs, I'll simply keep going back to them.

Now that's another good choice.Scrolling through iTunes, I noticed that each of the other Dream Theater songs I have were rated and this one was bereft of stars. No longer. 5'ed.
Sometimes, I just let the player play on shuffle, so I can't really tell how good a song is by how many plays it has received. Wrathchild is in my top 25, for some reason...
Not a bad offer but I already spent Ã'Â£40 on Doctor Who series 1-4 from Amazon.
Funny, I find less and less to get from HMV since I've got so much already. Amazon really is my friend these days.The 5 Blu-rays for Ã'Â£30 did tempt me. I'll have to have a look and see what I can get from there - desperate companies do silly things, when the writing is on the wall.
I'm not that big a fan of that series...
Eh, the last relationship I had was a complete dud from day one. :P
I never met that psycho but did meet Bex only once.Yeah, but the Psycho was only on the scene for a matter of weeks...
I think I'd settle for a drunken fumble at the moment.
I was deployed to score for the 1st XI on Saturday, needing good results from our final two games to win the league. We won the toss and batted first, ensuring maximum points, were we to take a victory. Digging deep and compiling a score of 186-8, with no man reaching 40, we sat down for tea, noting that the sun had come out, probably turning the pitch back to batting's favour.
Starting inauspiciously with no-balls and wides coming quite freely in the first few overs, we calmed down in the 6th, takling the first wicket. A change of bowling tightened things up at the canal end for the 7th, then Paul Thomas came back to continue his spell from the car park end, taking a hat trick, his first for Cookley. In all, he delivered 14 balls and took 5 wickets, on overs 6, 8 and 10, ripping through Harborne's upper and middle order.
Harborne dug deep and when Cookley skipper Gary Mills came on to bowl, his first delivery removed Harborne's wicket keeper. The excuse was that "he ambled in at spin pace and he bowled seam-up!" Harborne now sat at 117-8, having been 69-7. Tommo came back on at the car park end, to remove Harborne's skipper, before contributing the final wicket on a run out. He finished with figures of 6-66, to leave Cookley sitting 3 points clear, with one game left.
The second XI faced a tough opponent, whose season had been decimated by rain. Harborne won the toss and elected to bowl, a decision that reflected well, after Cookley were reduced early to 40-2. Ben Southall returned from Essex in his first (and only) game for Cookley on a Saturday this year and combining him with Matt Goode was the making of Cookley, a three figure partnership ensued, with Southall finishing on 93 and Goode on 31. Cookley batted deep for a few runs apiece, posting a total of 246-8.
Every bowler took a wicket, with skipper Simon Anderson leading the way (3-45) and Dan Soley running out the danger man, Usman Hussain, for 68. Harborne finished on 212 all out and Cookley are now 7 points from the second automatic promotion spot.
All in all, it makes for a fun final weekend. Except for me, I've got to arange a team for the day after and this lot will probably still be drunk...
