I'm a Winner!

Hee! My lovely CP Anna J Evans and I decided to enter the Smart Bitches' "Silver Anus Purple Prose Contest", because we're sick, twisted girls who get our kicks that way, baby. Our entry was #1, Taint Bottomwell, and we won!!

This is so awesome, because it has always been my secret, most fondly-held wish to be the possessor of a Smart Bitches Title. So I am very proud to announce you may all now refer to me as:

You may call me "Lady Manholleton" or simply "Your Grace". Either is correct. (Of course if you're a regular here I give you permission to refer to me as "December Manholleton".)

This tops of an awesome day. I had planned to rant today but I simply cannot dredge a rant from anywhere in my being.

Last night the hubs and I went to see the new Indiana Jones movie, win! We loved it. Not as good as Raiders, of course. And some of the CGI was kind of bleh. But it was fun, really, really fun. So go see it.

The hubs had yesterday and today off, and Monday because it's a long weekend here too. So we went shopping in Taunton. Stopped in at what used to be the Virgin Megastore and stocked up on budget CDs--Van Morrison's Moondance (I loves me some Van Morrison, especially Them), a Hank Williams Greatest Hits collection, the soundtrack to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (£3!), and some Iron Maiden. Rock on!

Then we toddled over to Ann Summers and bought me some new lingerie, which is extra fun now that I'm slim again. Leopard print, with little red bows. Lovely. AND I found a fantastic book: Le Dossier: How to Survive the English, which is hilarious. Might not be fun for anyone who doesn't live in England, but awfully fun for me.

And now we're going to Bristol, to check out what's new at Forbidden Planet and visit the only decent Starbuck's in the West Country, which is the one at Borders Books.

So sorry, no ranty. I just honestly cannot remember the last time I had a day this nice.

Oh, and I managed to add almost 5k words to UG2 yesterday, and this weekend I'm hoping to bring myself fully into the climax (heh heh.)

grats on the win... that's AWESOME!

glad your day was grand, and you got to spend lucre on lingerie... among other things ;) lol

You were Taint and Bottomwell??!! That was my friend Mikey's fave. He doesn't even read novels, let alone romance, but I've got him addicted to the SBs.

Sounds like a fun day. After all the unpleasantness the other day, you derserve one!

Charles Gramlich said...

Dare I say it? Perhaps? Oh what the hell. Given the new lingerie I'll bet you do indeed bring yourself fully into the climax.

Glad you had a great day.

Wow, what a great week!!

Congrats on the win and other goodies!

I admit I voted for #2, but it had "manroot" in it and I just can't resist a manroot.

kirsten saell said...

I voted for #5. Any man who could maintain his sanguinity to explain the properties of phenylethylamine during a moment like that is someone I want in my corner in a courtroom!

Loved Taint, though. You sure you don't have a secret appreciation for the manly manlicious manlove, D?

kirsten saell said...

Hey, D--I mean, Milady Manholleton--I can't offer you anything as grand as a Smart Bitch title, but head over to my place and work your magic on my stubbornly untitled third book. You could win 50-80 thousand of my very own electronically formatted words!

All y'all here, too, head over, wreak some havoc. Flagrant abuse of explamation points? Hell yeah. Unbearably obvious phallic symbolism? Bring it on!

Help kick off my shiny new blog by giving my latest book the purplest, cheesiest, over-the-top title you can think of.

Do your worst. Literally.

Thanks LW!

Yeah, it was pretty cool. We haven't actually been shopping and bought things like that in over a year, really, so it was a lot of fun.

Your friend Mikey has excellent taste, kis! Hee.

Heh heh, Charles, usually that's easer without...oh, never mind. Lol! :-)

Given how slowly this one's been going, though, Bernita, I'm still way behind--only 66k and I've been working on it for eight weeks today.

Thanks Seeley! Heh heh I bet you can't. Who can?

Lol sorry kis. And a secret appreciation? Hmm.

I'm glad you enjoyed your day. Maybe the rest of the weekend will be even better. Thanks for the review on the Indiana Jones movie. :)

Did you/ do you check your Gmail inbox? I emailed you ( I think) by hitting reply when you commented on my blog.

Anyway - just wanted to congratulate you on getting an agent! Hooray! yay!
