Jennifer and I started blogging about the same time and sort of came up together on the blogosphere and social media. I’ve always enjoyed chatting with her on Twitter, generally about books, sex, or… ok, really just those two things… so I was excited to meet her at the conference last summer. We spent a lot of time together, drinking, laughing, and stalking authors. But every time I walked up to someone and introduced myself, she popped up like a fucking jack-in-the-box, stepping in front of me, talking about her damn feature. Nicole Peeler, Kelly Meding, Sylvia Day (though she denies that last one.) I couldn’t take her anywhere!
Then, like the fool that I am, I decided to room with her at RT!! I guess I am a glutton for punishment. She tells me that she and Carmel are going to do a Stomp vs Romp part two, just so she can torture me again. To this I say, Go ahead. I know where you’ll be sleeping those nights!!
Though I bitch and moan –and call her a whore when she steals my book boyfriends—I have really enjoyed getting to know Jennifer on Twitter. I know how much she has grown to love gay porn. (Who doesn’t?) I know she prefers her men to be without body hair. I know all the specs on her vibrator. (Don’t ask.) I know how often she gets lucky. And I know that when she tells you she is just about to read a book you know she’ll love and you’ve recommended to her for months, she is lying through her teeth.
But I also know she is a lot of fun. Despite my totally justified concerns that she will start another feature to plague me with, I am actually really excited about our trip in May. Together, we will wreak havoc on Kansas City and scandalize the sweet ladies who have yet to meet us in person. Jennifer, I’ll bring the booze… you bring the dirty movies! And when we finish spending the days being great big book nerds, we’re gonna find us some Big Dick Richie strippers and paint the town red. Whatever happens in KC, stays in KC! (Unless you piss me off and then I’ll totally blog about it.)
LOL. Seriously, congratulations on two great years of blogging! Now… have you started that second Cut & Run book yet?
