I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame  

Typing up a little blog entry, just, y’know, to get my fingers used to the idea of typing. It helps! Honest! Or maybe it gives me a false sense of productivity, ’cause words are appearing on the screen and therefore I must be working…

The other night I was watching a tv show in which they were discussing minimalist homes, and the commentator said that often people with introvert tendencies like minimalist designs a lot because there’s not a lot of distracting external output. Extroverts, she said, tend to prefer busy rooms with lots of colors and shapes and interesting things. I thought of my office and laughed and laughed and laughed. :)

I went to the gym four times this week. Go me. My poor legs aren’t as sore as they were yesterday, and I took it a little easier in today’s dance workout, ’cause…well, partly because I was sore and partly because it’s a lot harder to dance on my own than in a class. I have to really be *feeling* it to make myself work as hard as I can/should, and today (possibly due to the soreness) I wasn’t feeling it so much. Still, forty minutes or so of barre and floor work can’t be bad for a person.

Oh! The cool news I said I’d mention: I’ve been invited to participate in a Subterranean Press anthology! (Along with, ye gods, Kate Elliott, Kelley Armstrong and Robin Hobb. Do you think I’ll ever stop feeling like one of these things is not like the others?) In dicussing it with the Best Agent Evar, I said I’d have to decide if I wanted to write “Urbane Shaman”, an idea which sprang from somebody’s typo of URBAN SHAMAN (Jo would be such a very bad urbane shaman), or if I wanted to write a Janx and Daisani story. Jenn said, “If it counts for anything, I vote for Janx and Daisani.” :) So I’m quite looking forward to doing that.

In my copious free time.

Ok, this is almost a page’s worth of typing, so I guess my fingers must be warmed up. (Except they’re *freezing*. I’m going to go snag the cat who’s licking my sofa (weird animal) and stuff him under my warm fuzzy shirt and suck up his body heat and pin myself down with his body weight so I have to sit here and write at least a thousand words.)

Oh, that reminds me about an ambition…well, nevermind, I can write about that later. *scoots to steal a cat and begin work*

I tend to be introverted. And I love having "interesting" things. I am SO not minimalist (my dad on the other hand, would have an all stainless steel house if my mom let him). Interesting.

And Oooh! Janx!

Well, yes, I don't know that she necessarily meant all introverts prefer minimalism or anything. :)

Ditto. Introvert, not minimalist and yesthnxplease on the Janx&Daisani :)

Right, so, just to clarify, that's Janx & Daisani, rather than Janx/Daisani?


Should I go now?

And see if I ever give YOU any books again.

*Wonders if it could have been something he said...*

Sorry! I shall never suggest such a thing again!

I was just going to ask - I'm so glad youi asked before I did. That way I can remain totally blameless and claim you put the idea in my head!
Natural20natural20 on February 4th, 2008 12:20 pm (UTC)
You sure you don't want some of the blame? Look, feel the lovely blame, you just don't get blame like that anymore these days...
irishkateirishkate on February 4th, 2008 12:28 pm (UTC)
Nope - quite happy not to accept any blame.
irishkateirishkate on February 1st, 2008 05:24 pm (UTC)
Ditto on introverted and not minimalist - and Janx and Daisani. (but then I am currently reading the negotiator series)
irishkate: bouncyirishkate on February 1st, 2008 05:26 pm (UTC)
on yes - and one of these things is different - I've read your work!

I just want to point out, concerning the post title, that you've already cut your hair and changed your name!

Well, sort of.

I must be a ROCK STAR!

I'd never realized that Zilli was actually a writing tool!

Typically he's a distraction tool, but when it's cold he's surprisingly helpful! :)
