“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.

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."
