Some people said some magic related things, some people disagreed and then some other people took offense to either the first or second group - just the usual ;-)

I went to the islands with my lady friend. It wasn't a pingpong/hookers kind of holiday.

Was rather chuffed with this pic though

You missed this wonderful sentence from Jonathan Townsend:

"That night a dislike of vanilla ice cream made its way though the city leaving in its wake a wave of startled, confused and bewildered dessert eaters."

Tease.

Please let it be my namesake's book.

And Mr Stone, thanks, that is an awesome sentence.

"Please let it be my namesake's book."

You mean Damian Hurst's 'How to Pickle Livestock which holding out four aces'? I hear it's got the real work on the pinch deal...

Oh, some magic DVDs are coming out. Some people think they are astonishingly good value and can't wait to get them. Others think they are an astonishing rip off and refuse to buy them. People got angry.

One thing though, the heat and humidity was horrible for cards. I went through 6 decks in 3 weeks. No idea how you guys in Florida etc cope!

It only takes a few times to learn never to plan on using cards anytime you plan to do something outdoors.
