I once saw it written that librarians in the 90s were like 'Discworld is popular among boys who don't read' which is an amusing contradiction... but I do sometimes wish I'd first found Terry as an adult, cos this went right over my head when I was 12. Oh well, an excuse to reread

Absolutely fuming that I have never been asked to do The Masked Singer. Mainly because I want households up and down the country to question why a bag of chips has got cerebral palsy.

your regular reminder that a major source of raw millennial existential terror is: "we've noticed how horrific old age often is for people *today* who have pensions and homes they own, and are doing the math on what that would look like for us"
