Those earrings are almost as cool as the book itself. Seriously, for anyone who hasn't read it yet - DO IT! I wholly endorse it (and I can't wait for the second one when it eventually comes out!). It's one of few books in my life I had a hard time putting down - I'm not a very heavy reader at this stage in my life, and Alys is one of maybe... 4 books in recent memory that I kept wondering "what's going to happen next??" even long after I put it down, and kept making time to come back to it in lieu of other things.

I used to drive by the Country Village in Bothell on my way home from work at my last job. I always meant to stop by one day to check it out... still haven't. I totally forgot it existed until now since it's no longer on my route.

I frequently joke that my phone doesn't make make phone calls because I uninstalled that app.

Seriously though, with the exception of short-term logistics, I hate phone calls. Most of the calls fall into 3 categories:
1) Unsolicited (usually recruiters, because apparently my professional skill set is highly desirable),
2) Very short-term immediate logistics ("hey, I'm just coming around the corner to your house now, get your shoes on and let's go")
3) My mother. Fortunately, she's learned how to text in the last couple of years.

What frustrates me with actual phone calls is how much attention they require, and their (often false) sense of urgency. If I'm texting someone, I can easily be doing other things while I wait for a response or vice versa. With texting, the distractions can work because you can easily reengage full context. In person, the other person is usually engaged in the other activity with you. On the phone, however, the split attention generally translates into a half-engaged conversation, and is generally impolite.

Wow! This was probably the best Kiriosity yet. The extrapolations from the few facts of the fictional world, matched to parallels in the real world, all while being thoroughly entertaining is simply amazing work.

Good work, Kiri. I'll most likely kill you in the morning.
