Oooh, and I shall answer you first!

I have a veeeery vague idea for an Irish Mage trilogy, but right now I'm going to leave the Walker Papers universe alone for a while. I need a break from it (and heavens know Joanne & Co need a break from me!). :)

Because one of the things they don't tell you about becoming a professional writer is that it *really* cuts into your reading time.

I think 2 books a week is about the minimum I should be reading, but after a nadir of 15 books one year I've learned that I can probably manage a book a week, and sometimes almost half again that. And I'd rather set the goal at what I can pretty well manage, and exceed it, than feel miserable about utterly failing. :)(less)

Meet Baloo, the newest member of our family:

baloo01

Baloo is a year-old rescue dog who came to live with us a couple of weeks ago. He is, according to the rescue people, part collie (likely: he shows a tendency to herd, anyway), perhaps part lab or retriever, or, in the opinion of the woman running the place, part flat-haired terrier.

He’s *definitely* very large. He’s definitely very furry. He’s...

“In Ireland, you go to someone's house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you're really just fine. She asks if you're sure. You say of course you're sure, really, you don't need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don't need a ting. Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn't mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it's no trouble and I can give you a hand in the kitchen. Then you go through the whole thing all over again until you both end up in the kitchen drinking tea and chatting.

In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don't get any damned tea.

I liked the Irish way better.”
