Evil Continues...

Just popping in---Have to catch up, but let's start *another!* thread here...
:-)

196 comments:

ChrisEldin said...

After reading through all the comments (and wondering when EA will show HER face to face allegations of not falling short of evil), I'm wondering if all the anonymous editors are manifestations of the same person...
:-)

Hey Robin, I like the golf carts too!

McKoala said...

The dog is called Mickay.

ChrisEldin said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Josephine Damian said...

Spike? Is that the dog's name?

How about Montmorency? Sounds like a proper English dog name. Methinks the EE, in spite of the nipple rings, is in fact English.

Chris: You better re-think that 6 AM start time for when it's Janet's turn.

Janet Reid said...

I want to know why I owe EE $30??

ChrisEldin said...

$30--could be six bottles of the kind of wine I drink.

Phoenix said...

Just doing a drive-by to say "Hi" (still at work and likely to be for a long, long time). I'll try to come by a little later when things slow up - y'all'll be around in 2009, right?

As far as the little weredingo's name? Has Rumpelstitskin already been suggested? If so, then I'm going with Grisham. Not that I'm allowed to win or anything, but I wanted my comment to be something more substantial than whining.

ChrisEldin said...

Phoenix, you're allowed one drive-by whine.
:-)

Stephen Parrish said...

$30--could be six bottles of the kind of wine I drink.

When we go out to dinner, please hand the wine list to me.

ChrisEldin said...

BWAHAHAHA! Shteef, I am waiting for the day...
;-)

ChrisEldin said...

I have to go feed the Things dinner.
Thing 1 just received his third yellow note from school. This is the 10th day of school, so that's one note every 3 days, right?
But at least all the notes are coming from different teachers. He knows how to spread the love.

ChrisEldin said...

Thing *2* I mean!
Poor kid though. He really is always the first one to get caught. He doesn't know how to hide like the other kids.

Evil Editor said...

I want to know why I owe EE $30??

Tupelo, Mississippi? 1994? A little matter of bailing you out of jail? I'm sure you'd like to forget all about it.

ChrisEldin said...

Details!!!!!!

This has all sorts of possibilities!

Chumplet said...

I'll bet Thing 1 and Thing 2 trade blame all the time, anyway, so things will even out.

Chumplet said...

They sure have cheap cops in Tupelo, Mississippi if you can buy them off for thirty bucks.

ChrisEldin said...

I was thinking the same thing, Chumplet!
:-)

Janet Reid said...

It was 1995. And I was the one who bailed YOU out of jail. And lent you $30 for pants.

I have proof

Chumplet said...

Wow, you have it all covered, dontcha, Janet? EE should cough up the dough.

ChrisEldin said...

Absolutely! Or at least give you a free set of Novel Deviations...

Chumplet said...

Again. I arrive and everyone shuts up. I'm a notorious thread killer.

ChrisEldin said...

Chumplet!!
we're a fickle bunch, the lot of us.

Bill Cameron said...

A yellow note sounds lemony fresh, so it must be a good thing.

ChrisEldin said...

LOL, Bill! He just loves to talk. Can't imagine where he gets it from...
:-)

Chumplet said...

What grade is Thing 1 - I mean, Thing 2 in?

ChrisEldin said...

Grades 3 and 5.
:-)

Do you think EE needs to eat dinner? Or is feeding the puppy?

ril said...

Man, this took a lot of reading to catch up...

Chumplet said...

Too late for dinner, unless he's one of those 'dinner at eight' types. Wouldn't surprise me.

ChrisEldin said...

AFLAC-Man is here!!!!

You are history-making!!!
My stomach still hurts from laughing so hard.
(You have to go to EE's blog to see what I'm talking about. It's worth the visit)

ril said...

Uh, yeah -- I already looked...

ChrisEldin said...

How was the conference call?

ril said...

Finished early. Those are the best ones.

ChrisEldin said...

Who'd you talk about?

Chumplet said...

Aflac. The duck, right?

ril said...

Yeah, it was a duck related conference call. Quackers.

ChrisEldin said...

Ril, did you read the Tulepo court documents, and the charges against EE?

ril said...

No, I just skimmed the comments.

ChrisEldin said...

They're worth a peek. Once you click on the link, you have to go to the second page..

ril said...

Ok, I'm off to read...

Chumplet said...

I only read the first page of the report. The legalese was making my brain hurt.

A conference call with ducks makes me think of the grownups in Charlie Brown. Wha wha waaaaa....

Janet Reid said...

wow, that Stella segment on Youtube makes me hot to see the movie. And it's pure ballet there at the end, did you notice?

yowza.

ChrisEldin said...

I haven't seen that movie in 20 years.... I think I'd appreciate it much more now!
Yowza indeed!!

ril said...

Aw, can't watch it here at work; have to wait 'til I get home.

laughingwolf said...

damn! i missed alla dat living here in da frozen north! :(

and stella IS fine... still! ;) lol

Chumplet said...

I could hunt for the link but I don't wanna miss anything.

Kiersten said...

Yeah, EE should have known better than to try and pull that on Janet--doesn't she represent crime fiction? Bad move.

The poor puppies probably need some attention. That, or he's watching reality tv.

Janet Reid said...

He's probably watching Streetcar!

ChrisEldin said...

Dearest Evil, I think all the guesses are in, so whenever you're ready to announce a winner...

:-)

Evil Editor said...

Sorry, I have a guest, and we're watching Monday Night Football. But I'll cough up the Novel Deviations collection if Janet will consider representing the hardback version which combines only the best ones.

Evil Editor said...

I believe I've demonstrated the film potential of Novel Deviations already.

ChrisEldin said...

Plus you've already said somewhere that everyone who has an opening in the book gets 1/88th of the profits. More than generous.

Evil Editor said...

2nd half starting, Gotta go.

laughingwolf said...

i'm still looking for something REAL on 'reality tv', all i see is scripted crap! :(

ChrisEldin said...

A segment about Bruegel is on one of my kids science shows! Don't know why really...

Evil Editor said...

Back around 10 eastern. Or is that someone else's time?

ChrisEldin said...

EE watches football? Is he serious?

ChrisEldin said...

I'm posting the next one at 10pm, but this one will still be live....

Many, many thanks!!!!!
:-)

Dave F. said...

Jeepers, when you close these comment trails, you ought tell us. I missed it completely.

Shona Snowden said...

Here I am, and you're all watching tv.

ChrisEldin said...

*waving to Dave*

Dave, what do you mean? I close one and open another right after because with over 100 comments, it takes a long time to refresh the screen. But hte comments aren't closed!

This one will stay active until EE announces the winner, but I have to post the next one at 10pm, so there may be some overlap (but not much). Plus, you'll get to hang out with 2 editors at the same time....
:-)

ChrisEldin said...

It just occurred to me--was there a clue about the puppy's name somewhere in the court docs?
Is the puppy's name Bailey?
I know I'm not allowed to play, but I couldn't resist...

Shona Snowden said...

C'mon it's got to be something like Apostrophe, Trope or Pathetic Fallacy.

Or Fang.

Phoenix said...

I wanna know if EE got the $50K. (Heh-heh. Good one, Janet. Zing.)

EE, you're sorry you have a guest? Have you asked them to leave? That's an easy way to get rid of them. Unless you're serving 7-layer dip. In that case, I'll be right over.

Phoenix said...

Oh, I'll need your address.

And a plane ticket.

ChrisEldin said...

*looks around the room suspiciously*

Where's Robin?

Janet Reid said...

uh...query letter and a synopsis. Email is fine.

Chumplet said...

I watched the Stella scene. How can Stanley be so wet and his hair remain so dry?

ChrisEldin said...

Chumplet, you're looking at the wrong parts...
heh heh

ChrisEldin said...

A query letter for Novel Deviations? That would be quite fun!

Chumplet said...

They didn't zoom in on the right parts.

Dave F. said...

EE has a guest for football?
Maybe he ought to serve cocktail weenies, beer, deep fried jalapenos and deep fried garlic. Now that would be a party that gets them jumping!

I did that once (served Vienna sausages) and my guests found their kid's slingshot and those little wieners hurt and leave really nasty oil splotches on the walls.

;)

Robin S. said...

Crap! You guys are still here???

ril said...

Superglued to my seat.

ChrisEldin said...

Dave, that's a funny picture!
:-)

Hey Robin! Where've you been? Hm?

Robin S. said...

OK- I just reread...

Damn. i've missed a lot of stuff.
Who all is still here?

ChrisEldin said...

Ril, you read it!!
;-)

Robin S. said...

ril, my darling man - your continuation was an instant classic, honey. Thank you so much!!

Chumplet said...

Dave's guests should party in the doghouse.

ril said...

Read it? I was there.

Phoenix said...

Still superglued, ril?

ril said...

I knew the duck lady was Robin's as soon as I read it.

EE tweaked the continuation some -- made it sound more like you than I did, I think.

ril said...

Still superglued, ril?

You know, it's uncomfortable at first, but after a while you kind of get used to it. I think it takes the pressure off...

Phoenix said...

Were you thinking of my Ducky-Duck when you wrote that, Robin? She would be quite honored.

ChrisEldin said...

Phoenix, glad you're off work now. You've been working too hard lately..

Robin S. said...

phoenix - where have you been??

so you knew it was me, ril? Cool.
This wasn't a beginning, by the way. It's a scene from a later chapter in my novel.

ChrisEldin said...

I'm going to post EA's in a moment, and I hope we all can go back and forth...
:-)

Robin S. said...

oh phoenix - I bet you're Ducky Duck is better lookin'!

Robin S. said...

Hey Chris,

One helluva party, huh?

Phoenix said...

Just taking a break, Chris. But look at you still going strong as the affable (vs Aflack) Roast Master here.

Chumplet said...

Has the Feetballs game gone into extra innings?

ril said...

I believe they're fifty down the yardarm and swinging for a tryout.

Robin S. said...

EE's gone bye bye like this before.

Cooking show...minions....cooking show....minions...millionth hit celebtration? or Gordon....

Chumplet said...

Sheesh, he went golfing today, for cripes sake. Couldn't he have gone tomorrow?

ChrisEldin said...

EA's is up. So you can pop in and say hi to her while EE is still watching football....

Phoenix said...

Hey Chumplet, don't you have something coming out in print soon?

Robin S. said...

Oh, he didn't go golfing. No one golfs nine holes on purpose and calls themselves a golfer!

Chumplet said...

Actually, it came out in print on the publisher's website yesterday, but it's not on Amazon yet. I was gonna wait till all my 'ducks' were in a row.

Robin S. said...

I gotta go guys- have a great night!

Robin S. said...

Congrats, Chumplet!

Chumplet said...

Hahah Robin! The Short Course is for kids!

Robin S. said...

Yeah- but EE is a geezer!

Phoenix said...

Yay, Chumplet!

Actually, I lived in a community with a 9-hole golf course. It was quite renowned. But I don't golf, so maybe it was renowned among the rugrat set.

ril said...

Yeah, well calling it "a nine hole golf course" is cheaper than baiting the moles, right?

Chumplet said...

I think we have about five golf courses per capita in this region.

Shona Snowden said...

'lo. Maybe EE snuck off to bed.

ril said...

Apparently he has house-guests. So you could be right...

Phoenix said...

It's Texas, ril, so prairie dogs.

ril said...

Prairie dogs? Awww, cute!

ChrisEldin said...

Ril, Can you do a speech bubble in the next post?
Would love to see what you come up with!!!
:-)

Shona Snowden said...

Subtle, ril. But effective.

ril said...

I'll take a look, but I might need some to think about it...

Shona Snowden said...

Is there a puppy whimpering outside EE's door tonight?

ril said...

Sorry. I thought I was on mute.

Evil Editor said...

I'm back.

Evil Editor said...

And I don't like what I'm reading.

ril said...

You got a problem with prairie dogs?

Evil Editor said...

Is there a list of dog name guesses? So I can choose the funniest?

Evil Editor said...

Are we the only two people here?

Shona Snowden said...

And I don't like what I'm reading.

It was ril.

Chumplet said...

Copy and paste all the comments, filter out the dog names and make your choice. Sounds easy, huh?

(I think I just guaranteed myself a loss)

Shona Snowden said...

Just choose McKoala's suggestion. Heh, heh.

ril said...

And you're welcome to come over here and discuss it if there's a problem...

Dave F. said...

I don't know if there's a list.

ChrisEldin said...

There's no list. Just a stream of consciousness....
Not sure what to advise, but perhaps just glance over the 500 comments and see what jumps out?

Evil Editor said...

No, I couldn't have gone golfing tomorrow, Chump.

Dave F. said...

I'm guessing that the name isn't Queenie or Rex or Prince - you'd never name your dog after British Royalty. Princess Margaret would get angry, not to mention Camilla, she might trample you with her hooves.

Evil Editor said...

That's when you guaranteed your loss.

Shona Snowden said...

perhaps just glance over the 500 comments and see what jumps out?

Sounds just like a slush pile.

Evil Editor said...

There were probably guesses made whaen I wasn't here.

Shona Snowden said...

Slushkiller. A fine name for a dog.

Chumplet said...

I'm going to flounce now.

ril said...

I guess.

Evil Editor said...

If it were like a slushpile, there'd be no winner.

Shona Snowden said...

Please do. Guess.

Evil Editor said...

Flounce?

Shona Snowden said...

So the dog's called...Loser.

Evil Editor said...

There were some good guesses on page one, let me go look thru them.

ChrisEldin said...

I almost feel sorry for Sparky....

ril said...

OK, I'm going to guess they're not dogs at all, but EE is harboring a pair of giant pandas: lo-mein and yin-yang.

Am I close?

Chumplet said...

Flounce. Walk out in a huff. But if I had to define it, I triple guaranteed a loss.

Shona Snowden said...

EE is harboring a pair of giant pandas: lo-mein and yin-yang

They're the weredingo fodder.

ril said...

I'm pretty sure pandas are not edible because the cuteness gets stuck in your throat.

Kiersten said...

When I took my daughter to see the pandas at the San Diego Zoo, one was laying up in a tree.

Peeing.

It's the only thing she remembers.

Shona Snowden said...

You've tried it then, ril?

Shona Snowden said...

Kiersten, the whole world is just out to get you, isn't it?!!!

ril said...

When the giant panda at the zoo near here passed away, they had a national day of mourning. And a barbecue.

Kiersten said...

Just the pandas, apparently.

Evil Editor said...

I'm back. I see some of you are in two rooms at once.

ril said...

Only in the metaphysical sense.

Shona Snowden said...

I'm sure you enjoyed that, Ril.

Pandas are not as innocent as they look...

We're multi-tasking, EE.

ChrisEldin said...

*waves to EE*

Sooooo.... have you picked a winner?

Shona Snowden said...

But I must cease shortly and go and do some real work, so please...the winner is...???

Shona Snowden said...

....nervous tension....

Evil Editor said...

Chumplet had a good name, but I had to disqualify her. But if she talks Kiersten into giving me her painting I'll reconsider. I think Grisham is a good dog name. I'm not sure who said it first, though.

Kiersten said...

Oh, the suspense...

Kiersten said...

I DID!!!

Evil Editor said...

I'm going with Grisham.

Dave F. said...

When I took my daughter to see the pandas at the San Diego Zoo, one was laying up in a tree. Peeing.

When I was a kid, I saw a female hippopotamus let fly with a stream that made most garden hoses look feeble. She was one of the first to give birth in captivity and WOWIE, you should have seen the crowd move out!

Kiersten said...

Also, how could I bear to part with the painting?

Unless I win the contest. In which case, tell me where to send it.

ril said...

I DID!!!

Actually, I believe it was Evan McCormack in 1953, but you were probably second or third.

Evil Editor said...

I believe Grisham the dog was mentioned on the first party page.

Kiersten said...

Yay! Sweet Grisham.

ril said...

So the other one's Clancy?

Dave F. said...

Grisham is a decent name for a dog.

Pop-Tart would be a bad name for a dog. Even a cat. Maybe even a pet rat or some other vermin like ferrets.
;)

ChrisEldin said...

Congratulations Kiersten!!!!

And thank you soo much for playing with us today EE!!! We've had a lot of fun, and hope you did too!

And we hope you can pop in during the week of roasts....
:-)

Kiersten, send me your email, and we'll organize your prize....

THanks EVERYONE!!!

Kiersten said...

Awesome. I'm ever so pleased.

Thanks, EE.

And thanks Book Roast. This was great fun.

Chumplet said...

EE, I can do another painting for you, only because you helped me sell my first two novels.

Kiersten, you're off the hook.

Phoenix said...

Wow, that's cool. I said Grisham, too, and I didn't even see Kiersten's guess! Great female writers who frequently visit EE's blog think alike, eh? Congrats, K!

ril said...

Well done Kiersten.

So, just in time for lunch...

Kiersten said...

So true, Phoenix. So true.

Whew, thanks, Chumplet. That would have broken my heart.

Shona Snowden said...

Congratulations, Kiersten!

Pandaburger, anyone?

Chumplet said...

Which one of mine did you like, EE? The Passive Aggressive Psycho Bitch?

I was disqualified because of the golf crack? Oh, dear...

Evil Editor said...

Ah, I see you figured out the winner while I was off confirming it.

Evil Editor said...

I knew it came up more than once.

Evil Editor said...

I was kidding You were disqualified because it's a male dog and he doesn't like being called bitch.

Kiersten said...

This is the benefit of having no life. Otherwise Phoenix would have beaten me to the punch.

ril said...

I knew it came up more than once.

Yeah, you don't forget something like that.

Shona Snowden said...

Thank you, EE. Couldn't be here for much of this, but looks like it was a blast! Thank you for giving up so much of your time.

Chumplet said...

Howzabout I email a good quality jpg to you, EE, and you can print it out in colour and frame it?

Phoenix said...

No worries. I'm not eligible to win anyway ;o)

ril said...

I gotta go eat; it's been fun hanging out with you all.

Thanks!

Kiersten said...

Oh, thank goodness. I was worried you'd be bitter, and then I'd lose your input on future queries. Which, heaven help me, I hope I never have to submit a query on EE again.

Evil Editor said...

Thanks for coming. Sorry I wasn't here 15 straight hours, nut a little exercise keeps the blood flowing.

Kiersten said...

You're a champ, EE.

Bye all, thanks for the fun.

Evil Editor said...

Sure email it on.

Chumplet said...

Okay. thanks for the fun day!

Evil Editor said...

No, thank YOU.

Phoenix said...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, K.

Thanks, EE!

Chumplet said...

As a footnote: I suppose I coulda won if I'd called the dog Passive Aggressive Sonofabitch.

KillerYapp said...

Grisham?

oh the humanity.

Julie Weathers said...

oh my stars, that lawsuit was hilarious. EE, surely you think Miss J deserves that money for covering your butt. ahem, er debt.

laughingwolf said...

grats k!

Robin S. said...

Congrats, K!

(Robin goes off, mumbling...Stelllllaaaaa!)

Precie said...

Congrats, Kiersten!!!

Kiersten said...

Thanks! What a great night.

BuffySquirrel said...

Grisham? I was gonna guess Kip.

No, no reason.
