done. actually done. will photocopy the ms in the morning and send it off in the afternoon (pickup is arranged, at a horrifying €106.58, for arrival on Friday, a day later than it's supposed to be, but nobody could guarantee it on Thursday for any price).

*splat*

Oh my lord! Does it usually cost that much for you to send manuscripts?

This is particularly appalling. But then, it's a 6.5 pound manuscript going overseas as close to overnight as I can get it. I could've spent as much as, oh,€25 less for some other variant of relatively quick mail, but nobody else could be sure it'd get there Friday. It's outrageous.

I luff your icon. :)

That's crazy expensive O.o!

I luff it, too :P

Yeah. I'll have to sell about 160 copies of the book just to cover that postage. :)

A HUNDRED AND SIXTY?!?!?!? O.o *headdesk*

Oh, hey, question for you. I might be headed on an exchange to Ireland and I'm just wondering what the number one thing you think I should see while I'm there is? I'll be there for 3 weeks in spring, heading to Dublin, (London)derry, and two other places I can't recall from the top of my head right now...

ME, obviously!

I haven't been to Newgrange or to Tara, but I'm told that Tara, particularly, is just mind-bogglingly astoundingly awesome. So I'd say Tara with a chaser of Newgrange, or the other way around. :)

Hehehe. If I have room in my suitcase, I'll bring all the copies of your books I have to get 'em signed :P If I can fit them around the textbooks *wince*

And I think there is a stop in Newgrange...I went to the presentation for all the stops, but I don't really remember them all XD!

Hapy face plant! but sheesh! that is SHOCKNG money!

Yay for done! Boo for money! (I've spent fifty quid a time to get proofs safely & swiftly to the States - I guess they just weighed less. It's still shocking. There must surely be a way to do this electronically...?)

Also I love your splatted-cat icon. My Sophie used to sleep like that, face down in the duvet...

Seeing manuscript typed 'ms' reminds me of Emily of New Moon. I like it. I suppose it's a writer thing.
