Hi there! This is Eddie, your shipboard computer!

I've really been exceptionally lousy at posting here. Part of it is the lure of Facebook and Twitter, I'm sure. I'm pondering if I should turn the Twitter auto posting back on...probably not. Maybe I should just put a link to it in my sidebar.

Anyway. Tomorrow, well, technically today, I'm doing the same Mad Science program 3 times (it's called Harnessing Heat, and it involves the making of cotton candy, so I'll leave smelling like toasted sugar) and then, since I'm going to be in the area, I think I'll take the tour at Great Lakes Distillery. Very excited about that, as I'm gaga over their gin, I want to try their rum, and I've heard they're making rye. They know the keys to my heart, it seems.

Um, what else? I had another dialect coaching session on Wednesday, working with the same client to get her comfortable with an Irish dialect. David Alan Stern and I differ a bit on our Irish sound, as there's a few ideas he has that I think are WAY too stereotypical and/or wrong. Like making "never" or "devil" sound like "neever" or "deevil." As my old Voice and Diction teacher would say "Mm-hmm...no."

Ok, must go to bed now, as my first session is at 10am. Good night, all.

    I miss California tremendously. I'm working on getting back there permanently. That is all (for now).
