discworld vetinari colour

(no subject)

I'm sure everyone has seen this on daegaer, but it looks like they've found Cao Cao's tomb.

Also, happy birthday to joasakura

And otherwise, finished Unseen Academicals. With all allowances made for 'first time reading newly published Discworld in hardcover' which, truly, has a different feel from 'reading all of extant Discworld any way I can get it to catch up to everyone else', I really think this is one of the best in the series. As proved by the fact that the staff of UU did *not* get on my nerves as they customarily do, because ordinarily UU ranks down there with Rincewind for 'stuff I can take or leave alone, and would preferably leave alone.' (Earlier I had a feeling the football thing was going to prove too British even for my second-gen appreciation, but I got over it.) Also-- Vetinari and his squeeze. Also Pepe. Also Glenda. Also Nutt. I am a happy camper.
