Congratulations, xiagan family!  :)
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Wow I guess you have really made it as an Author when your characters have their own theme park....No one tell Stephen King!

Haha, thanks! You're not the first person to say this. But as so often knowing a thing and experiencing it are two totally different cups of tea.
My reading time atm is 90% commute to work, so it's not likely my reading will be reduced greatly. :)

Well I do as when I was little a friend of mines mum was Swedish and used to very theatrically tell the stories and did the voices. My sister had the books but I honestly don't know how well known they are in the UK.

I've just realised that no matter how many furniture shops there are, I'm an Ikea girl at heart. I just love everything they have, and I'm happy furnishing my house with their stuff. No point in looking at all the posh places, even if a small part of me says I should...

And I love assembling flat pack furniture 8)

Oof. I wonder if people who live in snow-free parts of the world realise what an infinite variety snow and ice manifests in. The streets and sidewalks are covered with ice, which wouldn't be a problem if it was colder. But the ice is juuust damp enough to be quite slippery. And now we have really fine, powdery snow coming down. If it was wetter and heavier it might create a solid layer to walk on, but it just hides the really slippery parts.

That is really new for me  ::)

And considering I have a WIP in an ice and snow based land, it's also useful information!

Ice in Texas is really deadly. No one has a vehicle prepared for it an no one knows how to drive on it. Even if you are an expert who is equipped and ready for it the roads are not safe. Even if you know how to drive, you are surrounded by people who have no clue.

So true. I had to learn to drive on ice/snow when I first moved to Maryland. Basically, a quarter-inch of ice on the road shuts down/paralyzes all of Dallas Fort-Worth. And yes, even if you have a 4 wheel-drive vehicle and know how to drive on it, 90% of the other people on the road do not, making them the biggest threat.

In Maryland, by comparison, we're driving to work with snow drifts covering the ground, and the city almost *never* shuts down. Drive slow and don't do anything stupid and you're fine. It also helps that Maryland has a really efficient network of plows that will get most major roads cleared before 9 am.
