Iris McLeod

For those of you who can't remember what Iris looks like, here are two descriptions from the books . . .

From Kiki Strike:

"The door shut behind us, and a girl wearing pink pajamas embroidered with ladybugs stepped forward to greet us. She was almost as small as Kiki had been when I first met her, with hair only a shade or two darker. In fact, her resemblance to the young Kiki Strike might have been uncanny if it hadn't been for her healthy complexion and hazel eyes."

From The Empress's Tomb:

" . . . the door flew open, revealing a tiny blonde girl in an oversized white coat. . . . Like Kiki, Iris was unusually small for her age. Unlike Kiki, she possessed a set of cherubic cheeks that were often pinched by strangers who mistook her for an eight-year-old."

By the way, how is Iris' last name pronounced? My dad said he once had a roommate with the name McLeod but that it was pronounced "Mcloud"...is that right?

Nellie: It doesn't say whether her hair is curly or not, so you can make that artistic descision.

Jin Ai: Yep, pronounced "McCloud"

Thankies! My 'rents packed my book. T_T

Well, the books were overflowing the bookcases onto the floor, plus piled on top, in my room and the spare room both, so I guess they had good reason.

Wow. I googled Iris McLeod... and it turns out there's a woman in Australia by that name! She does amazing work for the New South Wales Nowra Aboriginal Medical Service, and she received an award in 2006 for her services - the first of it's kind. Quote Matt Brown, MP: "This is a tremendous initiative and there is no worthier inaugural winner than Mrs Iris McLeod. She is an inspiration to us all.”
What a coincidence! And what a great woman!

I googled her too but didn't look at who she was. My friend lives in Australia. Don't you live in Australia too?(Raph) Or am I confusing you with someone else here?

This might be a little confusing, but I changed my nickname to lil'geek123 to pull a prank with one of my friends on someone we know, but now I'm not lil'geek123.
sorry ^_^
(it was a REALLY good prank!)
