Comments: If It Sounds Dirty, Blame Your Filthy Ears

"Package One: The ARCs (advanced reader copies) for BETWEEN, GEORGIA. It is SO freakin' sexy to hold and sniff the ARCs of a book I wrote that there should be a filthy sounding word for it."

Perhaps "sproinked"?

I agree with the contest. I think we all want a copy to read, review, and review again!

PS Yes to the contest. The winner is whoever is named Heather, helped you make a waitress blush in Mississippi, and read Haven Kimmel because of you (and LIKED her very much).

Oh oh oh... look. I WIN!

Oh, dear me! The thrashing tails as they're forced to swallow the pill? You're outrageous! How do you do that?

The wart thing? MY EYES!? *ROFL* Only Mir, man, only Mir.

New ARCS! Say it with me now, everyone. Yummm!

Sproinked. A neologism, by me, spurred by the half painful/half funny half noisy/half silent (yeah, I know it's four halves. Math never was my strong suit) experience I had reading that post with my boss right across the way in his office. I suppressed a giggle which resulted in a minor SPRain in my grOIN. And the supression resulted in a snorting noise rather like a muffled OINK. Or should that be oinK? Anyway. Yes, sproinked.

OMG, thanks to Mir I come across this blog and I end up sproinking myself (Sorry Aimee, it's just too good to pass up. This word will forever live on in the Rigg vocabulary).

No need to apologize, Jen. I'm hoping to get it into dictionaries by the end of the decade. ;)

To "Sproink" or collectively "Sproinking"

He Sproinked. She Sproinked. We Sproinked. They Sproinked. What a lovely new word to use. I am going to drop that into every conversation possible at The Bookseller to the Stars today. I love learning new words to baffle people when being asked inane questions, just like the hot water bottle enquiry I had yesterday. That and pony hole will conquor today.

OOOh, you have proofs. Are any coming over to Hodder in the UK?

just got turned on to your blog by someone posting to a jewelry board I'm on. You are wondefully entertaining. I would love to see a compilation of the words your brother has come up with to circumvent using the traditional cursewords.

Joss you never fail to entertain, evoke rampant mental images of cute havoc, and snorts of derisive gaiety that result in sproinkes. Good word.

I root for contest - but seeing as how I am rabidly bad a contest - I beg of the release date.

I think it was exactly one year ago as I was starting to wear MAC red lipstick as a sekrut friend unsecreted at last that I said PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME! for an ARC of gods in Alabama. So, on this anniversary I say:

PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME! I'll review it everywhere! ME me me me me me me with chocolate and beef tenderloin that tastes like love and red lipstick and a shirt.
