Come to my bonfire...I'll supply the marshmellows!

Marshmellows? Is that some new kind of aphrodisiac? :D

I'm there. And Ray better bring his 50-pound bag of Macadamia nuts.

Oh noes. Please tell me you're not talking about one of your own projects. If so, I shall not help you burn.

I don't burn books, but I've been known to scorch a S'more or two in my time. It's awfully nippy outside, though, dontcha think?

When one person burns a book, a fire is lit in the minds of thousands of other authors.

(Jeez. Can I get some sort of 'cheesiest post' award?)

What books and why?

Any books, if I had something safe to burn them in. It's too fscking cold to move and I can't afford to get the thermostat off rock bottom. Hm...what to start with...lots of books here...

I don't like mallow, David. I believe I covered that in another thread recently. For a stalker, you're not very good. Marshmellows are my version of the same...without the mallow. I enjoy a good high at a book burning. Get festive, David. Join the nasty party.

Since you're the one burning the books K, I assume there will be poetry thrown in also? Or will that just be the kindling?

ETA: I just saw the rejection thread.

I recommend putting a COPY of the manuscript on the fire, placing your face on there and then getting back the fuck up and writing like your face was on fire.

Then re-submit.

I don't burn poetry. It's too hazy. Poetry fire is too much like the technocolour dreamcoat. I choke on the fumes. It's either marshmellows or poetry. Tonight...I need the marshmellows.

KTC
01-25-2008, 06:09 AM
oh. I'm beginning to like the sounds of that. I should write like my face is on fire more often. That used to pay off for me. No worries...I have tons of ideas. Waiting to use them was killing me. Now, I need not wait.

For a stalker, you're not very good. :cry:

I'm looking over a five-leaf clover that I've overlooked before. I'll bring my blowtorch. That'll get the fire started right quick.

Hey...Meta boy. I like that.

That reminds me of the time I answered the door with a blowtorch in my hand...only to find it was the police asking me to turn down the Bowie. They had no taste in my old neighbourhood. I kept the blowtorch behind my back and prayed.

I kept the blowtorch behind my back and prayed."Turn down" and "Bowie" should never be used in the same sentence. It's sacrilege.

I've always found S'mores better in theory than in practice.
Theoretical s'mores do NOT have enough chocolate.

Please. I know that. But blowtorches and police should also not be used in the same language. I was willing to let them win that one confrontation. Besides, the back porch had just fallen into the pool...so it was already turning out to be quite an amusing day.

Theoretical s'mores have enough chocolate, and it's melted with the marshmellows and the graham crackers hold it all together. But in practice, the marshmellows are never hot enough to melt the chocolate, so it stays all cold and hard and when you bit in, the graham crackers disintegrate and you're stuck with cold chocolate and sticky fingers.

you're stuck with sticky fingers.

That was a really good album.

I hate to tell you this, but you're overthinking things. Just a little.

Marshmallows have no redeeming qualities in and of themselves. I just wanted to point that out also.

Don't. You. Dare.

Rewrite. Resubmit. You know the routine. Rejection is nothing more than a battle scar of honor.

LOL. What does this mean? I must rewrite. I was given a great opportunity...but the piece was way under word limit. Way under.

You're doing it wrong, then. My s'mores always satisfy. You must S-L-O-W-L-Y toast the marshm_llows (note: 2 is better than one - more heat)until they are they color of the graham cracker. The chocolate cannot be thicker than 1/8 of an inch.

But then, you've never struck me as a Happy Camper, so I can see why, in practice, you might be unsuccessful at s'mores making. No insult intended. I wouldn't expect the Devil Ledbetter to master such mundane amusements.

I have a belly full of sushi, sapporo beer and Toblerone dark chocolate. Dude, I'm mellow enough right now without taking the marshes down with me.

I am a happy camper, so long as I am camping in where there is a concierge.

Yeah, friend. You calling me a liar?

Frankly, burning my bra wouldn't melt a small snow cone. So, there you go.

Me neither. Perhaps we should give them to Kevin for his trip to hell? Or am I crossing threads. Oops, sorry.

I don't want to subject my nipples to a burning bra, thanks. Who wears a bra on fire? That's just stupid.

Don't burn the book!
It would be much better to just tear each page and let it float down the river, then forget about the s'mores and have a trifle! After that, go back to the ms that is saved in your computer and face it with a cleansed soul and a full belly.

Throw mine on the fire. The ALA says it's OK if libraries ban it, so you don't have to worry about getting any grief from them.

Just make the fire big enough so my face catches fire too. I haven't written like my face is on fire for quite some time.

It's been too long.
