Hello, loyal flist. Please read the quoted post below, if you are so minded, and then if you think you may be interested in this or have ideas for other things, please pop over to [livejournal.com profile] domorethings and note your interest or idea there. Or do it here, as Emmie (she who is organising this) reads this LJ also.

"This one is for fans of the brilliant Terry Pratchett, who was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers this year.

You may already have heard of the fan scheme, Match It For Pratchett , which aims to match Terry's donation of £500,000 ($1,000 000) to the UK Alzheimer's Research Trust.

I've been thinking about doing something suitably silly to raise money, something in the spirit of the man and his works.

Would any of you be interested in a sponsored Witches vs Wizards (or other assorted Discworld characters) read-athon in Leicester Square¹, with tea, and maybe cake?

The idea being, we'd all dress up as Discworld characters, pick a Pratchett book, and read the whole thing sat in Leicester Square. We could collect sponsorship beforehand, and perhaps have collection buckets on the day too. I'm thinking late spring/early summer.

I'm trying to gauge interest, and if enough people seem up for it, I'll set the official ball rolling down the hill of fund-raising...

[1] or some other suitably public space"

Word spread. We now return you to your usual programming.

I have just had a wrong number call at work, and I swear the woman was asking if we were "The Lakeland Llama trek centre". That's one of the oddest misdials ever.

After typing that, I Googled. It's really real.
