I had that one as my signature six months ago, actually. I was referencing Pratchett at the time. I think you'd be fine.
You've managed- in our three years together- to kill not only my god, but my father, my brother, and my fiancée. That's kind of like a homicidal hat trick. It's a strange foundation for a relationship.

My sister turned me on to Dresden Files & we drive the rest of our family crazy quoting it.  I got CD ON the 27th but she hadn't, yet.  I almost popped an aneurism trying to NOT text her spoliers.

Greetings

I'm slowly reading through CD but rationing myself to a few chapters a day.  I've now read this section of the Book Club because I've just got beyond Ch 15. 

I've started noting the main scenes in each chapter and which characters appear in which chapters as an aide memoire.

Lots of good stuff.  Harry's not short on occasions where he is taken by surprise so far ...

Regards

Edward

Yeah, him being taken by surprise seems to be a running gag/theme

To any of the mods, can I get a verdict on this quote to go in my signature

"Build a man a fire and he's warm for a day. But set a man on fire, and he's warm for the rest of his life"

The mods approve!  Pratchett is Pratchett. :D

Thanks. Figured as much, but since it was in the book, just wanted to err on the side of caution.
