And I'm happy.

I've emailed Kelly (who is at Sycamore Hill) and Gavin. It's the series' last year of eligibility (no more reprint anthlogies allowed) so I'm especially happy about this. It was totally unexpected. I forced myself to send an acceptance note to Lisa Morton, who was running the Stokers in LA--just in case and boy, am I glad I did.

Horse pucky! Well, Ellen, I never heard of horse pucky till you said it, but it reads pretty special to me, like it should be said said as a compliment, so a load of it for this, with a little donkey puck on top.

ROTFL--if you don't know what this means, I'll interpret :-0

Ohmigod, Anna. Did I actually say "horse pucky?" --what was the context, or shouldn't I ask?

Um, actually it's a synonym for horseshit! So not really a compliment ;-)
But thank you so much for the thought.

You used the expression, Ellen, about something I said on another thread.
You may well have been right! ;-)

She's just crawled back in, Anna has.

You took me by surprise with that 'horse pucky', Ellen. I loved it at first sight. It looks good, but it sounds even better. Say it out loud. Isn't it a fine summer's day? Doesn't it have the effervescent joy of a bottle of ginger beer? It does to me. Though I was instantly in love with it, I looked it up yesterday, and the definition didn't seem to fit (in most folks' eyes), though to a rosebush, a load of horse pucky is a joy forever. In Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens, for a large part of the year, the rich scent of this fine vegetarian processed waste/food wafts from the rose garden. But back to my excuse. I just hated to see it consigned as it is, and wanted to give you a properly jubilant message of--congratulations? The problem with 'congratulations' is that the word sounds and looks to me like something that stiff (dead) men in celluloid collars should say. And 'congrats' sounds worse. International meetings of diplomats who don't agree end in congrats, to my way of thinking. So is there a fine, upstanding, decent effervescent way to say woo hoo and all that?

Hi Anna,
Welcome back. You can use "horse pucky" any way you like--after all, you're the writer.
Thank you m'dear.

Btw, I love ginger beer. ;-)

Thank you, Ellen. I'm not the keenest on being a maggot, though I could be more successful.

So can this be a taste-ation? If so, then a cold bottle of ginger beer to you, and a slice of Shaker lemon pie.

Anna,
Well, I'm really glad they don't show the individual critters unpainted :-) But that is fascinating -and I like the art!

Yum on the ginger beer but I'm afraid I don't like lemon pies of any time (well lemon icing on angel food cake, maybe)...

Thanks, Chris!

Really?

(Goes to put his copy of #1 in a safer place...)

#1 got me in a lot of trouble, once upon a time. You see it has George RR Martin's "The Pear-Shaped Man" which I was reading at work. My manager at the time asked me what story I was reading, and as he himself was pear-shaped, he took it kind of personally...

Thank you m'dear.


I've just noted that 'horse pucky' is also a term of 'endearment' in MULHOLLAND DRIVE. Never heard the expression in UK.
