  1. You know, I’ve loved all your stories. Your book and every fic you’ve written. I think you are an excellent writer. I know, in a couple of weeks when I read your vs episode I’m gonna love that, too. I’m convinced your grocery list is a fascinating read. Yeah, I admit it; I’ve lost my objectivity and perhaps my credibility, such as it was.

    I don’t think it’s better than the others, but this series is my absolute favorite. It’s just… I don’t know, I can’t explain it, it just is. It makes me dream of an alternate universe. I want to print it and wallpaper my living room walls with it. That’s how crazy I am about it. Or …you know just plain crazy.

  2. This is fantastic! I love Lindsay thinks she gonna get someone to agree with her only to be confronted by Claire being helpful, to hesitant, to telling it like it is.

    As always, I love reading your writing and I find myself checking your blog daily for updates.

  3. I’ve read all of your wmc fic and haven’t commented. Sorry about that. I love your writing and have spent days and nights going through it all.

    I love this line. I want to carry it around in my pocket to bring out at parties…

    “It was a perfect diversion from the fact that Cindy waltzed on into your life and owned you.”

    I too am eagerly awaiting your episode of the vs. I’m glad you are posting other updates in the meantime. Lessens the torture of waiting a little.

  4. I second wickedgrrl, I loved “…the fact that Cindy waltzed on into your life and owned you.”
    But the best is “…you could live a thousand years and never quite figure out what to do with Cindy.”
    I have ideas on that, however 🙂
    C’mon Linds – go get her!

  5. Sheesh! I made it sound like losing my credibility was a result of me loving your work. When, in fact, I was refering to me going to far in wanting to read your grocery list. 🙂

    Although… I think you might actually pull off a grocery list worthy of a Giller prize.

    Writing challenge, perhaps? 😉

  6. This. Is. Hilarious.

    I’m surprised Claire didn’t just give her a ‘property of Cindy Thomas’ sticker and send her on her way. I’m sure, being a mother, she has a label maker at home somewhere. :D:D:D:D

    ‘Just to be clear, you do realise I’m not a real shrink, right?’ hehe

  7. This is great! These conversations are hilarious. The owned you comment was great as were the comments about not being a shrinkk and dream interpretation. I can’t wait for more! 😀

  8. Thank you all for being encouraging as usual. Some of these comments have really made my heart shiver.

    Nikky – Even if it’s a total exaggeration, I appreciate the whole wallpapering thing. But, please, don’t ever actually do that. Print out my pics and wallpaper with me instead 🙂 Heh. Then get up in the morning and say, ‘good morning Riley’. When the mini-mes begin to answer, you really are crazy at that point. Check yourself in at Princeton-Plainsboro and ask for Dr. House.

    I do hate to say that I don’t write an interesting grocery list. I just write like cream cheese, olives, pitas, onions, but then I eat them all together, which is more interesting than the list itself.

    I did, however, once take the minutes for departmental meetings at an office I worked at, and when I turned them in to the boss, who was kind of crazy and cool and not boss typical, she was like, “these are the best meeting notes ever!” and I was like “I know! I rock the house!”

    Trina – checking daily makes me happy… of course, I’d be happier if I had something to offer you daily 🙁 I’m trying though, I really am.

    Wickedgrrl -Welcome aboard! A lot of people seem to be awaiting my ep. I just hope it doesn’t disappoint. I feel kind of like that scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, where he says, “The suspense is terrible. I hope it lasts.” Here’s hoping the suspense isn’t better than the product.

    Halfpint – Are you trying to rush us to the finish line? See the above about suspense 😉

    Starry – label maker Claire? Rock. There’s a story in there somewhere.

    Moose – I hope you are saying you can’t wait for more as an exclamation of excitement. I mean, no one’s gonna bust my kneecaps if I make you wait, are they? 🙂

    May – Awesomeness? That’s what all of you bring when you come say nice things that make me get out of bed to write another day. Thanks for it.

  9. You do realize that now I want to read those minutes, don’t you? 😉 And that made me nostalgic for the last office you worked at. I miss reading about your cubicle exploits and your attempts at getting fired. I even miss you ranting about Lindsay/Cindy-hindering-acrylic-nail lady. Sorry if I’m bringing up bad memories.

    As for your episode, I know it’s natural for writers and other artists to have a little ‘stagefright’, but I really don’t think you have anything to be nervous about. Although the security surrounding the VS is tighter than a minister’s wife’s girdle at an all-you-can-eat-pancake breakfast, (that’s my favorite Blanche-from-the-Golden-Girls line, and I finally get to use it in a somewhat contextual way 🙂 ) I did manage to pick up tiny bits of information on ep. 5. Here’s what I was told:

    A) It’s going to be so worth the wait.

    B) It’s gonna be a good one.

    C) At no point will there be fishnet stockings involved.

    All I want to know is which father and daughter are we talking about, and is there going to be a little kissing. After Lindsay’s display of jealousy, and late night phone-confessions, in the last episode, it seems like she is on the verge of…something.

    So, what do you say? Care to drop a few hints, some crumbs, a nugget? No? I can’t get anything from you, either, huh? That’s fine; I’ll just continue counting down the minutes. 11885 min. until the 31st. 🙂
