rflong: (OMG)

Sadly I didn't make the Gaiman signing last night - I wimped out due to a combination of the disaster that is Dublin traffic in rush hour (which now appears to start at 4pm) and my innate inability to stay upright and conscious in large crowds. When I found out how busy it was at 4.20 (thanks for the headsup [livejournal.com profile] irishkate - we will meet up on Friday!) I chickened out. I know. Wimp!

Instead we went to Ragazzi in Dalkey, had a most excellent dinner and watched my 4yo daughter flirt with the Italian waiters with frightening efficiency.

It sounds like everyone had a ball in Chapters though and I am still slightly jealous.

After dinner we went home and I did ALL the edits for Soul Fire because we thought the digital box was on the fritz again. After a long and fairly agonising phonecall of complaint that went absolutely NOWHERE (yeah, surprise, right?) we gave up. (And found out this morning that a cable had been knocked out of the back of the box. Ahem. Anyway, moving on...)

I worked, [livejournal.com profile] ewh sorted papers and then, to my surprise, I was FINISHED! So I sent it back to the wonder-editor!

It was back to me this morning for FLEs and apparently my new name is Speedy Gonzales!  So I will get on to the FLEs this evening. Did have great fun with a pronunciation guide though, and the need to point out that when pronouncing Irish names it depends where you come from so Ulster Irish and Munster Irish can sound like different languages (well, almost) and I only speak School Irish. And not for almost twenty years at that).

I also found one of the best Wolf pictures EVER!

Becuase we all need a wolf every now and then for backup.
