Yes, it is that long ago.

It was an eventful week. I also met nallac and Bernard the Cunning One that day, and ewx and damerell a few days earlier.

I was going to say the same thing, but you've saved me the embarrassment.

I can't quite believe it, though.

Congrats, Bellinghpeople!

I feel slightly embarassed at not remembering sooner. Like a fortnight ago.

On alt.fan.pratchett in summer 1994. There was a tradition in the group of male posters proposing to the few women that were around at the time, just to make them feel welcome you understand. In September 1994 the bellinghman proposed to me, followed over the next few weeks by 4-5 others. I suggested that all my suitors meet me in the signing queue at the next Terry signing in London, they could fight round-robin duels and Terry could marry me off to the survivor. As you can tell, this was all being done somewhat tongue-in-cheek :-)

Anyway, I went to the signing and 3 of my 'suitors' (none of whom I had met in person before) turned up - the bellinghman, nallac and dammerell. No duels were fought then, although the bellinghman and dammerell did fight a duel for the honour of my hand early the following year, with nerf guns, in the courtyard of Queens College, Cambridge. And the rest is history :-)
