Great interview with Madeleine.  Fascinating stuff!

I'd love to hear about your SRS... I am at Elementary level. I do a fair bit of listening/speaking practise using the MP3 lessons, and writing practise on Skritter, but I think I could boost the review side of things.

Could anyone explain a little more about how huì becomes huǐr when you apply the érhuà to it (second-to-last line)?  Is it just because you are taking a falling tone and adding a rising tone ér to it, making it a falling-rising tone?  Is this rule always applied?

Just continuing what pinkjeans and Amber said, would you typically follow up on "nà suàn lė" with "méi guān xì" or "xiè xie", or would it be sufficient to say it and leave the shop?  I'm still getting used to the sometimes more economical use of phrases in Chinese.
