The fish sings again [Jul. 14th, 2010|08:11 pm]

swan_tower did the recording of my short story, "Väinämöinen and the Singing Fish," which is now available on PodCastle for the low, low price of absolutely free. I have been playing with niecelets and talking to their parents and have not yet had a chance to listen to it, but I'm looking forward to it. I hope you enjoy it.

Completely off-topic, but have you seen this already?

I had not.

And while it had some of the standard-and-not-really-mine Minnesota things (I am not a Spam girl or a fisher), it also had some apropos moments. (Loon Cafe represent!)

I freely admit that the "uff-da" made me instantly think of you.

I didn't realize that jonsinger had never spontaneously heard someone use "uff da" in conversation until I did this 4th St. I still can hardly believe this to be true. He has come here for things often enough, and it is a thing people say. I am people, and I say it! Therefore.

Also I have gotten alecaustin doing it.

I am utterly unrepentant.

California gave us upspeak; mrissa is responsible for spreading the uff da. I know which one I prefer.

I am utterly unrepentant.

And how is this a deviation from the norm, exactly? (Not that I feel you have anything to be repentant about, mind. Just asking the question.)

Also, congrats on the podcastling of your story!

I'm just saying: if my mom ever hears you say, "Uff da," she's going to give me the proud-and-happy look. Like when she discovered Lil's love of lefse. Because there will be absolutely no doubt as to whose fault it is.

Although she may be willing to let timprov and markgritter share some credit.

I think I'm going to have to hear it a few more times in context before I can say it correctly, to tell the truth. Though it is a *very* convenient interjection in text, I must say.

I hope you enjoy it; I also very much hope my attention didn't wander on any of the pronunciations. (There were a few my brain kept persistently trying to get wrong, unless I jerked it back on track.)

I really enjoyed your reading, especially how you read the haddock.

I did enjoy it, but also it made me sad.
