“You’ve got an Oirish face.”  

I swam this morning. Now I’m all perky. That’s so annoying. :) Yer man the kids’ team coach asked me what club I’d swum with, because anybody who did “tomble tarns” (ie, flipturns) was probably a club swimmer. I said I’d swum in Alaska, where I was from, and he said, “Alaska? But yer parents are Oirish. Ye’ve got an Oirish face.” :)

Okay, my plans today are mostly South Carolina Writers’ Workshop stuff. I need to:

- work up a handout for the “developing your writer’s voice” class
- ideally, although not as critically, also create handouts for
» visualization class
» dialog class
- print out the submissions for critique
- review at least one of them
- print out WALKING DEAD, while I’m at it

That, actually, should keep me pretty busy, although I also need to shop.

I read that as Orcish for a sec, and was offended! Oirish is much better.

*laughs* Rawr! Orcish! *laughs* No, I think I'd rather be Oirish. :)

Ideally you'd want to be able to switch off. There are times when I've wanted an Orcish face, but I'm too damned cherubic.

One of the joys of the Celtic diaspora - there are Oirish faces all over. And a very fine face it is too :)

I even saw them in Japan. Admittedly, with epicanthic fold, so I don't think they actually had any Irish ancestry, but even so.

An Oirish face... pasty pale but prone to cooked lobster shades? :)

I gotta say, you do look pretty damn Oirish. :)

In retrospect, those two are not actually related statements. :) The previous refers mostly to myself. ;)

*laughs out loud* I didn't exactly take them as related, and wasn't offended, anyway. And I also do the pasty white to boiled lobster, so it was entirely accurate. *laughs more* *hugs* :)

Heh. That happened to me in Dublin a few times. I'm 2nd generation Irish, and I got into arguments about where I hailed from in pubs. One guy refused to accept that I was from New York. "But you've got an Irish accent!" "No, no. I have a chameleonic accent...from New York."
