Things to learn

How to wiggle eyebrows. How to alternate. How to do so without holding one of them down with fingers.

Singing with a convincing imitation of an Irish accent. Scottish is taken.


The art of lying to one's mother. Essential for any believable actor on stage.


Standing on your head.


Welcome to DRiP, people.

Book publikcity happened today :)

and earlier

I feel terribly, terribly ecstatic but I can't jump around because I stayed up till five-thirty writing and that was awesome, but then I had to wake up and teach this kid at ten-thirty. And she looks as bleary as I feel. Sitting side by side now,I'm having coffee, she's having chocolate milk, and she's writing a story about a magician's hat. And look at the weather. Today is clearly going places.

Ooooh, earthquake last night. I want to celebrate having survived, 7.7 IS a big deal.
