RTB day and naivete

(Hey, that rhymes)

Hope over to Romancing the Blog to read “I Dream of RITA”.

Perhaps it’s ridiculously naive of me to believe a post celebrating RWA’s RITA awards won’t degenerate into comments like “OMG, the RITAs are stupid and obsolete and irrelevant and run by old-fashioned blue-haired prudes because my M/M/M/M/F/M/M/M/Goat romance set in a futuristic penile colony didn’t final”, but I’m hoping it won’t because my telling any of RTB’s visitors to piss off would be rather rude.

Yes, I feel very strongly about it.

And yes, penile was on purpose, just to amuse myself.

    I agree. About the RITA.

    And. I made up the word groinal to refer to the groin area to amuse myself. ‘He has a groinal tattoo of a scorpion getting ready to sting.’

    I like that word. I wonder if I could get it by Angie. :groucho:

    I’m curious if it was “groinal” that got you sent to moderation. :lol:

    You know somebody somewhere is now going to write that book. If it hasn’t been written already.
