[20:03:23] <BA> Boo!
[20:03:32] <@Sean> Eeek!
[20:03:50] <julia> Yikes
[20:03:55] <julia> :D
[20:04:12] BA leans
[20:04:26] <BA> lord love a duck, what a busy day. Packing sucks!
[20:04:46] <@Sean> it does -- I hate moving so I'm glad it's not me
[20:05:47] <BA> :P
[20:05:52] <julia> But we'll own and not rent
[20:05:56] <julia> yay!
[20:06:09] <@Sean> nods -- that's very cool
[20:06:15] <@Sean> good for you guys
[20:06:24] <BA> Yay!
[20:06:53] <BA> Yeah, hopefully I'll be unpacked before you come.
[20:06:58] <BA> ;-)
[20:07:14] <@Sean> yeah, boxes are hard to sleep on
[20:07:26] <julia> LOL. The bassets do just fine
[20:07:32] <@Sean> LOL!
[20:07:45] <BA> grins
[20:07:47] <BA> so
[20:07:50] <BA> I had an idea
[20:07:54] <julia> oh no
[20:07:56] <@Sean> uhoh
[20:08:03] <@Sean> the most dangerous words ;)
[20:08:09] <BA> why does everybody ALWAYS say that?
[20:08:18] <julia> because it's always a neat idea
[20:08:24] <julia> but always means work ;)
[20:08:27] <@Sean> yep
[20:09:00] <BA> I was thinkin' that we could tell stories on school days for our characters
[20:09:11] <BA> like, Coke? Was an AWFUL student.
[20:09:28] <@Sean> heeee
[20:09:30] <BA> Awful, but he loves to read. Like now, he reads a book a day, easy.
[20:09:39] <@Sean> that's cool
[20:09:47] <@Sean> I love Coke
[20:09:52] <BA> me too!
[20:09:59] <julia> I like Coke. He's my second fav Roughstock boy
[20:10:14] <julia> Dillon being my first
[20:10:16] <julia> ;)
[20:10:16] <BA> He's getting a whole 'nother book where we find out about his history.
[20:10:23] <@Sean> oh too cool
[20:10:51] <BA> Dillon was/is great at math. He has an accounting degree. O.O
[20:11:01] <julia> The things we learn!
[20:11:03] <julia> Lesse
[20:11:12] <@Sean> poor man ;)
[20:11:16] <julia> Jonny from the Bloodrose never went to a school
[20:11:22] <julia> he had tutors
[20:11:45] <@Sean> he was always a rich dude, eh?
[20:12:06] <BA> He seems like he was private tutory
[20:12:20] <julia> he was pretty well off
[20:13:06] <julia> and Deke, the werewolf who does security with Kasey in the same series, he was too wolfy for traditional school
[20:13:15] <julia> kind of a homeschool deal
[20:13:23] <@Sean> heee
[20:13:27] <BA> DId he got to obedience school at PetSmart?
[20:13:32] <BA> go, even
[20:13:39] <@Sean> *cackles*
[20:13:42] <julia> cackles
[20:13:48] <julia> Sit. Stay.
[20:14:06] <BA> Roll over. Hump that other dog. Good boy!
[20:14:32] <julia> Nah, Deke doesn't hump other wolves
[20:14:39] <julia> He has a vamp fetish
[20:14:46] <BA> heeeeee!
[20:14:58] <julia> What about the Hammer boys, Sean?
[20:15:14] <@Sean> Billy was an A student
[20:15:27] <@Sean> Tanny got an A in truancy
[20:15:35] <BA> heeeee!
[20:15:40] <BA> Never say it!
[20:15:44] <julia> but I bet he did well in shop, right?
[20:15:49] <julia> since he works with his hands
[20:16:05] <@Sean> he just didn't learn the way they taught
[20:16:13] <julia> Poor Tannny
[20:16:17] <@Sean> yeah
[20:16:32] <@Sean> although he got Billy in the end, so probably not so much with the poor ;)
[20:16:38] <BA> :D
[20:16:42] <julia> Nodnods
[20:16:48] <julia> Go him!
[20:17:21] <@Sean> Jim was extremely conscientious and got high grades
[20:17:40] <@Sean> while Marcus was a numbers and dexterity man
[20:17:54] <@Sean> shop and math were his go tos
[20:18:02] <julia> grins
[20:18:24] <julia> if we go waaaay back to the Thatchers for me[20:18:31] <julia> Jed was a solid B guy
[20:18:47] <julia> Ken, the middle brother was a suck up and an A student
[20:18:54] <@Sean> LOL
[20:19:03] <BA> heeeee
[20:19:05] <julia> and Ross coasted with a very unrespectable 2.0 for a long time ;)
[20:19:12] <BA> Marcus. Dexerity. *giggles*
[20:19:26] <BA> Do not diss my baby Ross
[20:19:33] <BA> *snuggles him so hard*
[20:19:36] <julia> Oh hey, he's plenty smart
[20:19:40] <julia> just boooored
[20:19:47] <julia> why do you think he jumps out of planes?
[20:20:00] <@Sean> heeeee
[20:20:01] <BA> same reason Rigger does?
[20:20:14] <julia> <looks at Sean>
[20:20:27] <@Sean> to get to the marines of course!
[20:20:37] <julia> oh, yeah
[20:20:40] <BA> LOL!
[20:21:01] <@Sean> Rock is the surprising one of that bunch -- he was not a bad student
[20:21:19] <@Sean> whereas Dick was a little shit -- plenty smart but even more smartass
[20:21:30] <BA> Apropos of nothing -- we're watching this house hunty show and there's a dude that's terrified of the water wanting to move to the ocean...
[20:21:38] <@Sean> there's a reason he *had* to join up
[20:21:52] <BA> Dick is a bad, bad jarhead
[20:21:54] <BA> ;-)
[20:22:04] <julia> snort
[20:22:08] <@Sean> but he's a good, good lover
[20:22:20] <@Sean> poor Dick never gets the love[
20:22:21] <julia> Ross had that choice, you know? Army or jail
[20:22:42] <BA> Mike from Say Something was a good student, like doggedly solid, Jenson, not some much with that whole book learning thing, but he's not stupid
[20:22:48] <julia> He went Army to save his mom the horror ;)
[20:22:57] <BA> heeeee!
[20:23:00] <@Sean> lol
[20:23:01] <BA> *loves Nancy*
[20:24:06] <julia> thanks, hon. Mom Thatcher was my mom, really
[20:24:35] <@Sean> that's cool
[20:24:45] <BA> Yeah, I'm not sure my mom has appeared in a book yet -- although Ellen Redding has her mouth ;-)
[20:24:50] <julia> Oh! BA, what about my faves of yours?
[20:24:59] <julia> Sonny and MJ from the Road Trip series
[20:25:39] <BA> Sonny was on track for college, believe it or not, but he had that beaten out of him.
[20:25:42] <BA> MJ?
[20:25:44] <BA> Oh, y'all.
[20:26:54] <BA> He was like this Wile E. Coyote Super Genius kid. Got recruited super young. Had a PhD before he was an adult. He's like Spenser Reid from Criminal Minds, but sexy and pissed off.
[20:27:07] <BA> Spencer? Spenser?
[20:27:38] <BA> He was the best to write. So fucking wicked
[20:28:00] <@Sean> how fun
[20:28:16] <BA> I miss him. You know how that is? You have a character whose story has been told but...
[20:28:24] <@Sean> yeah, I hear that
[20:28:30] <BA> OMGIWANTTOWRITEHIMALLOVERAGAIN
[20:28:48] <@Sean> heeee
[20:29:37] <BA> I'd write MJ and Sonny again.
[20:29:44] <BA> in a heartbeat.
[20:30:57] <BA> *sighs* Okay, now I'm depressed. ;-)
[20:31:07] <BA> someone tell me something amazing
[20:31:49] <@Sean> your new book comes out tomorrow
[20:32:01] <BA> eeee!
[20:32:13] <julia> Yes!
[20:32:13] <BA> Or, in blog time, it came out yesterday.
[20:32:14] <BA> :D
[20:32:20] <julia> Mike and Jenson
[20:32:22] <@Sean> heee, right
[20:32:35] <julia> they broke me
[20:32:37] <julia> I sobbed
[20:32:41] <julia> I ranted
[20:32:44] <julia> I raved
[20:32:47] <julia> I adore them
[20:33:03] <@Sean> I haven't had a chance to read them yet
[20:33:10] <@Sean> but I have heard all about them :)
[20:33:22] <BA> They were hard -- Sean, I told you about them last year during a long drive and a snow storm, remember?
[20:33:25] <BA> ;-)
[20:33:28] <@Sean> nods
[20:33:30] <@Sean> yep
[20:33:30] <julia> I beta read it
[20:33:46] <BA> Also, you officially suck as a best friend. ;-)
[20:33:52] <@Sean> I know!
[20:33:56] <BA> LOLOL!
[20:34:09] <BA> *giggles madly*
[20:34:46] <@Sean> I'd promise to be better, but I'm not that organized
[20:35:29] <BA> *grins* I have embraced the bullet journal. I'm driving J out of her mind.
[20:36:02] <@Sean> this is that thing where you write all the thoughts down in point form as you have them?
[20:36:22] BA nods -- there's a website, hold on
[20:36:25] <@Sean> or is it a journal that's shaped like a bullet?
[20:36:34] <julia> rolls eyes at Sean
[20:36:38] <julia> you
[20:36:43] <julia> Canadian
[20:36:44] <@Sean> I can't resist!
[20:36:46] <BA> http://bulletjournal.com/
[20:37:01] <julia> I even have one O.O
[20:37:06] <BA> well, the worst part is you *know* that evil mind is going
[20:37:09] <BA> bullet
[20:37:20] <BA> butt plug
[20:37:27] <BA> kink
[20:37:31] <BA> boom
[20:37:31] <@Sean> nods
[20:37:46] <@Sean> it's true, I'd probably be way better at keeping a butt plug journal than a bullet journal
[20:38:08] <BA> bwahahahahaha!
[20:38:27] <BA> Day One: 1 inch diameter, plastic, 3 inches long
[20:38:39] <BA> Day Two: Steel, shaped like an ice cream cone
[20:38:53] <BA> Day Three: I think that was a trailer hitch...
[20:38:57] <@Sean> LOLOL
[20:39:22] <BA> Who knows you? ;-)
[20:39:54] <@Sean> nope, not me, I'm pure as the driven snow....
[20:39:58] <BA> Oh, man. Ice coffee rocks.
[20:40:05] <@Sean> okay, even I can't say it with a straight face
[20:40:12] <BA> Oh, bullshit. You're just Canadian so everyone believes that
[20:40:42] <BA> You blink innocently, throw in an 'eh' and it's all over
[20:40:52] <@Sean> cackles
[20:41:24] <BA> "What a dear. How charming. How very polite."
[20:41:54] <@Sean> yep
[20:41:58] <BA> and I'm going... Have you had a discussion about crowning with Sean? Like in a public place? Loudly?
[20:42:16] <@Sean> as long as they don't see what's on the hard drive I'm golden
[20:42:22] <@Sean> cackles
[20:42:42] <@Sean> loudly is the only way to have a public discussion about crowning
[20:42:47] <BA> fuck yes!
[20:42:51] <julia> Man, a girl goes to pee
[20:43:01] <julia> and y'all revert to kink
[20:43:12] <@Sean> you know you can't leave us alone
[20:43:12] <BA> That was early on, wasn't it? I laughed so hard I damn near wet myself.
[20:43:38] <@Sean> nods
[20:43:41] <@Sean> I couldn't breathe
[20:43:42] <julia> Go ahead and snicker about things that happened without me
[20:43:46] <julia> I see how it is ;)
[20:43:49] <BA> LOL!
[20:44:22] <julia> then again, BA and I had the time traveling butt plug
[20:44:41] <BA> yeah, that was an idea whose time never came
[20:44:47] <BA> (I said came)
[20:44:53] <@Sean> LOL
[20:44:57] <julia> chortles
[20:45:06] <julia> okay, clearly it's wine o'clock
[20:45:31] <BA> Oh! Sean! We made these drinks!
[20:45:48] <BA> Caramel apple vodka, pumpkin spice liqueur and apple cider
[20:45:50] <BA> OMG
[20:45:59] <BA> they're like apple heaven
[20:46:04] <BA> I could drink 12
[20:46:06] <@Sean> heeeee
[20:46:14] <BA> and then you'd have to peel my happy ass off the floor
[20:46:18] <@Sean> nods
[20:46:21] <BA> we'll have to make them when you're here
[20:46:29] <julia> I'd leave you for the centipedes
[20:46:35] <BA> Liar
[20:46:47] <BA> You saved me from the evil centipede of doom
[20:46:47] <@Sean> LOL
[20:46:49] <BA> I know
[20:47:14] <BA> of course, if I passed out, J'd be going -- *poke*
[20:47:19] <BA> *poke*
[20:47:20] <julia> I would
[20:47:26] <julia> she's not a passer outer
[20:47:30] <BA> "Don't make me use the swiffer"
[20:47:37] <@Sean> LOLOL
[20:47:50] <julia> the Swiffer is the best bug killer EVER!
[20:47:56] <BA> true story
[20:48:14] <BA> it can kill 3-4 crickets at a time
[20:48:27] <@Sean> crickets do not belong indoors
[20:48:34] <BA> no
[20:48:40] <BA> and we had an infestation
[20:48:52] <julia> OMG it was awful
[20:48:59] <@Sean> :P
[20:49:57] BA leans and snuggles. I guess we should say all the promo-y things.
[20:50:22] <BA> Say Something IS OUT AND IT'S SO GOOD Y'ALL GO READ IT AND WE'LL CRY TOGETHER OMG
[20:50:24] <BA> *ahem*
[20:50:34] <BA> Yeah, I have a new release. It's cool.
[20:50:41] <@Sean> *grins*
[20:51:18] <@Sean> very cool
[20:52:00] <@Sean> Bruised is available for early download at Totally Bound
[20:52:20] <@Sean> it's a reprint and it's nice to see it available again
[20:52:28] <BA> It has a neat cover.
[20:52:34] <@Sean> nods[
20:52:45] <@Sean> it does
[20:53:26] <julia> Uh. Blinks. I have Java Rocks coming out in the Dreamspinner writing anthology
[20:53:46]<julia> and I have a Full Moon Dating AND an Elemental Ops out in November
[20:53:57] <@Sean> cool!
[20:53:58] <BA> and we all have CEREUS!
[20:54:03] <julia> eeeee
[20:54:04] <julia> yes
[20:54:05] <BA> (write faster)
[20:54:06] <julia> :D
[20:54:14] <julia> tappity tappity
[20:54:18] <julia> going to write now
[20:54:19] <@Sean> that's October 17, right?
[20:54:22] <julia> waves and hugs
[20:54:34] <BA> nods. That's the plan.
[20:54:52] <@Sean> I can't wait to share my spirit bear and his slightly nutty human
[20:55:04] <BA> Love y'all. Can't wait for next week. *smooches*
[20:55:13] <@Sean> Night!
[20:55:20] <BA> I imagine next week's discussion will be "moving sucks"
[20:55:29] <@Sean> heeeee!
