Speaking of Fjords...

In the last post (DW) I had the quote about fjords:
"Look at me - I design coastlines ... I got an award for Norway ... I've been doing fjords all my life ... for a fleeting moment they become fashionable and I get a major award."

-- Slartibartfast (planet designer)
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy / Douglas Adams
Before I eat my lunch, I thought I'd see if I could find a YouTube video. Oh, Bill Nighy of all people was Slartibartfast in the movie!

Alas, couldn't find the movie clip yet, but here's from the BBC serial:
Nobody natters like Douglas Adams...


Ooh and here's the movie version!
It was in the mosaic of links after the BBC clip. Clever YouTube.

Note: This does not imply that my YA trilogy is an absurdest comedy. I just think the fjords bit is funny.
