Can I steal your alter ego for my own pesky amusement?

Uh-huh. So what you're saying is that an outer casing, headlock for example, of living opium is able to constructively redirect the boundless energy present in, say, a human-sized glob of Flubber? Hmm. *raises eyebrows and nods appreciatively* Gerrymanderes the world over are relieved, I'm sure. ;-)

P.S. Cute poem. :-)

I think maybe I ate a tin can yesterday.

Just curious? Do you editor and/or your agent read your blog? Laffs and goes back to the very difficult corner I have backed someone into.

Heather, oh lord, what have I loosed upon the earth?

David, if you call girls a "human sized ball of flubber" it is a pretty good bet that you, like my husband, have never yet won the "do these pants make me look fat" game.

Mir---did it upset your stomach?

And Gabi! No, my agent doesn't read my blog. He doesn't read any blogs, really. Not his thing. My editor once told me she had found it and was reading it and I said LETS PRETEND YOU DO NOT READ IT, OKAY?
SO we pretend she doesn't so I can talk about book stuff here without feeling self conscious. *grin*

Is it too early to seriously remind you about the Gerrymander, Colander, Very Great story? :-)

Why Joshilyn, I was only referring to Flubber in the strictest movie-like context of bouncing-off-the-floor-walls-and-ceiling energy. No, really. Cross my heart an' hope to die. *Scout's honor saluting* I also try really hard to avoid that game you mentioned. It seems to be closely related to the "Do you think she's pretty?" game. Another one I'm no good at. *snerk*

My wife sometimes asks me the "Do these pants make my butt look big?" question fully knowing my answer is going to be "No. Your butt makes those pants look big." We never get all they way through the exchange before laughing.
