Sorry for the spam, but HEEEEEE!

Probably only of interest to brandil and thebratqueen... So, I get a package today in the mail: my Caitlin books! They're used, so the first one has someone who practiced spelling "Caitlin Murphy" over and over on the inside flap. I can just see the 13 year old dreamily imagining that as the most perfect name ever. Heee!! "Cordelia with the alabaster brow..."


From the back cover:
CAITLIN WON'T WAIT FOR HIM TO LOVE HER
Caitlin. Beautiful. Dazzling. Charming. Rich. And very, very clever.
To everyone at her exclusive Virginia boarding school, she seems to have it all. But there is a secret need that haunts her life. A need for love. And only one boy can make her forget her unhappy home life, can fulfill her need for love: handsome, sensitive Jed Michaels. Jed, who has already given his heart to another girl.
But Caitlin is determined to win him for herself, one way or another. Then a tragedy occurs that has consequences that not even Caitlin can deal with...

Loving is the first in a series about the unforgettable, raven-haired beauty, Caitlin. There's never been a heroine like her.




Hahahaha! I love "raven-haired beauty" and "can fulfill her need for love."

From Book 1 (I got book 3 two weeks ago... I must read them in order! How will I ever UNDERSTAND THE PLOT, zomg??)



"Caitlin," Ginny told her, "Jed spent almost the whole night with Diana - either dancing or talking - and he didn't look as if he was suffering."

Caitlin laughed. "Ginny, you crack me up. You don't really expect me to believe Jed spent a whole night with a nothing like Diana?"

"You can believe what you want - but it's the truth."

Caitlin remained on the bed as Ginny took her nightgown and towel and left the room for her shower. Caitlin was furious with Jed. How could he have danced all those dances with Diana? Everyone in the school was probably already talking about it!

It was time for Caitlin to take some serious action!



Oh Em Gee, people!! Caitlin is going to pull out biochemical weapons of mass destruction! Or genetically clone an impostor to Diana and stab it, then hide the real Diana in a cave and tell her the world ended and it's ALL DIANA'S FAULT! Or stab her a billion times and dump her body - weighted with ceramic unicorns - into the Chesapeake Bay!

...or get revenge involving a horse. SOME HOW JED WILL BE HERS. All hers. Muah ah ah!

Hahaha! I KNOW. But. This is Francine Pascal, of Sweet Valley High fame. She is so "prolific" that she has people write FOR HER. And she gets paid.

Judy Blume will always be Queen Bee of the tender aged YA books for me. Oooh, and the Ramona books!!

*squishes you* Hi!

I know - I spent the better part of an afternoon googling her name, trying to find the books. There's a horse accident, a wheelchair, a love gained and LOST, omg.

And someone's perfect 5 year old son that loves Caitlin? Ahahahaha! GENIUS.

<-- my icon for the porn I'm writing!!
*takes a deep breath and dives deep to avoid the dolphin attack*

OMG DIANA IS THE 'UGLY' ONE and the "fat girl" - we know this because she is CONSTANTLY REACHING INTO HER BAG FOR CHOCOLATE BARS - is Morgan. Nice and horsey. hahahahaha!!!

Okay, did you see that I'm sending these to Brandi and she wants to know if they're to carry on to you when she's done? You want?

Oh, and she STARTS OFF EVIL. She's Cordelia with a confident Willow roomie. It's a redemption tale! OF LOVE.

Lavaliers? Like a locket? *sings Daddy Warbucks' line from ConnieAnnie: The Musical*

They WOULD be written as 0s. Lilah would remain spoiled (but unloved by her reaching/wealthy father) with flashing green eyes to match her lime green Fiat. Hahahaha. I drove a beige Fiat the first half of my senior year. WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK.

IT IS TAKING ALL OF MY STRENGTH TO NOT WRITE MOCKING COMMENTARY IN THE MARGINS!!!

Example: "Caitlin stood frozen to the spot for several minutes, seething as she listened to Jed's footsteps fading behind her. Her hands were clenched so tightly at her sides that her fingernails cut into her palms. This couldn't be happening to her! she thought. And all because of theat prissy nothing of a girl! She'd get Diana back for this. She'd have her revenge if it was the last thing she did!"

What I want to add: "A single reed instrument sounded in the background as her steely gaze focused high on the banyan tree overlooking the cliff. She felt her hatred focus into a ball of energy and in one swift kick, halved the tree with a high 'Kee-yah!'

'Well done, Grasshopper. Now. Finish her!'

Caitlin bowed to her master and moved swiftly to her battle horse. She would kill Diana and put her head on a pike and then Jed would be HERS."

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
