Eight-track mind again

Sometimes it's a little weird living in here. I read the newspaper and see that Finnish 15-year-olds scored second-highest in the world in math, and I think, "Well, of course; it's Jatta Vaara's attempts to regroup after the end of Midnight Sun Rising." Do I really think that's what's factually going on? No. But I've gotten so used to working things into this fantasy series that it no longer particularly seems like work any more. There's permanently another track going, and occasionally I just have to stop and reiterate (just for sanity's sake) that none of these people are externally real.

On another note, will anything particularly bad happen to rum balls if you make them with the really strong rum?
