Yay - darn this means I have to make one up.

I don't know how many of you have read the Discworld novels but my favourites are the ones about Commander Vimes and his wife Sybil. Both of them are very funny, as are the books.

One word and its very easy.

Thanks for the extra points, Kath.
Ok, let's see...

He pushed open the door of his room in the new age hotel. 'A normal one would be better', he thought gloomily. The radio in the walls was shrieking: 'Life is a cabaret, old chum'. Barely seeing his way through the dimly lit room, he moved towards a many- layered window to pull open the blinds. 'Cabaret, heh, yeah, right!' he mumbled ironically, at the scene that greeted him.

There's four to be found.

Kath, you got two that I had in mind (Elanor and Rethe) and two which I didn't (Sam and Ent), for which you get a bonus!
Saucepan Man gets bonus point as well for Ormal.

There's still two place names to be found though, so keep browsing!

You're right , Mad Baggins, but there's yet another one...ok, I'll give it away - it's Aman - towards A MANy.

Now, for points - Kath got four,
Saucepan Man- one,
Mad Baggins - three.

According to this, Kath should give us the next one!

Hamfast is correct but I wasn't looking for the other two. Points for Ea but not for Tol as I'd have put the whole thing in.

10 day rule!

It's amazing how stupid men can be. Especially from Numenor. I mean, they're so stupid! They go charging off, sending every person to their deaths! I know what a faithful would said. He'd say "Well I'm not suprised! They're idiots! Especially Ar-Pharazon. He was definitly a powerhungry idiot of a man! We actually have the common sense not to do stupid things. That's why we survive!"


Find the hidden person!
