So very, VERY smug!

Several weeks ago, in comments on arcaedia's journal, logrusboy admired the cover for FIREBIRD DECEPTION, saying he "could almost make myself buy a romance for that Dermody cover..."

This was followed by me saying they were spy novels, and him saying:

Hrm... Maybe if I moved the price sticker to cover the publisher's logo...or arranged to get an autographed copy inscribed something like this:

"Dearest logrusboy,

It's not a romance, it's a [favorite epithet here] spy thriller! Get over your insecurities about your manhood and read my [another favorite epithet here] book already, you [yet another favorite epithet here]!

Love and kisses,


For the last several weeks, we've been going around on how he might be so lucky as to get a copy thus enscribed. Now, when I say, "going around," what I mean is, he's been pleading and I've been putting him off, because I went behind his back and, via arcaedia and tryslora, got his address and sent him a copy of the book, inscribed *exactly* as he requested. He did not, as he hoped, get to find out what my favorite swear words were, but that's what you get for being specific. :)

He got the book yesterday.

*howls and dances around gleefully*  I am SO.  VERY!  SMUG!

*HOWLS*  I have email from him:

Dearest Catie,

I was delighted to receive your present.  It was very thoughtful and, although all the clues were crystal clear in retrospect, completely unexpected.  You, arcaedia, and tryslora got me good, and I congratulate and thank you.  One day, I may even forgive the lot of you.

Love and Kisses,


*laughs until she cries with glee*  *beam*

Oh, goody. Spread my humiliation! Soon I won't be able to post anywhere without getting fifty replies saying, "Hey! Aren't you that looooooser who Catie totally PWNED?!! Ha! Dork!".

On the plus side, I got my book. Is it worth the lifelong shame? I'll let you know after I read it. :)

It's not humiliation! It's *fun*! I love sneaking up on people and doing this sort of thing.

Had I known you didn't own Urban Shaman before I sent CARDINAL, I'd have included a copy of it. Instead I'll just charge you to go forth and buy a copy when the reprints hit the shelves. :)

The worst part isn't the public mockery (okay, I suspect no one besides us and your co-conspirators actually cares, but in theory the entire interweb could be laughing at me right now) or the fact that the clues were all there for anyone who can outthink a turnip.

No, the worst part is that my wife is going to get so annoyed with me for spending all my nights trying to develop a workable plan for revenge...

*sigh* The worst part is that now I'm so paranoid I rolled the mouse over your post to see if there really was a wiki entry...

(See! People I don't know are already mocking me! Like it wasn't bad enough when it was just everyone I knew!!)

(It'll only get worse.)

I doubt it. LJ is the only thing on the planet that has a shorter attention span than I do.

My husband says, "He needs to learn to leeeet goooo." *laughs*

I'm sure you can think of better things to do with your nights. Spend your *days* plotting revenge. :)

My days are already scheduled for eating chocolate chips... :)

Ooh! Oooh! You are EVIL! Evil! EVIL!

Good one, oh devious Kit! :-)

Niiiccce one.

And in other news, eveshka told me how she knows you. And how I apparently kinda-sorta do, being in the same place, the same time.

And in other, more random news, and having just re-read Winter Moon - Jo clearly needs to watch White Men Can't Jump for her dose of half-nekkid Wesley Snipes. *ahem* *I blame FX for that comment, by the by*
