    This is going to be my standard reply now whenever things start getting tense around here. Chocolate is my 'go to' when I am stressed. If I start putting on the pounds it is going to be all you all's fault!!!!!
    Can you make them with milk choco? I'm not a big fan of the dark. ;-D

    Neither of you are letting me down... I was just playing to try and lighten the moment... it's okay. :love:

    And, it's perfectly okay to be annoyed with one another... I don't expect us all to get along at all times. Just remember to breathe and put it all into perspective, that's all I ask. xox

  5. I should have used spoiler tags on part of my first post on page 7 :( I did the same thing MJS did - I posted a comment related to the thread title without thinking it could be a spoiler to someone who doesn't want to know anything about Mr Mercedes until they've finished reading it. Sorry y'all :(

    I've been blah-blah-blahing my way through the Mr. Mercedes threads since it came out, because I still haven't finished it, but seriously... I know I don't have much hope of things not being revealed, so I have to take that chance by entering any thread that even hints at being related to M.M.

    ...and since I have no filter between my brain and mouth, and not much of one between the brain and the fingers...let me just say that MJS?...I love ya man, but Shasta would win this death cage match in a rout...and I'm not just sayin' that coz she's made me cookies...she is merciless, fierce and damn cute to boot...

    That was very nice of you to say, thank you!

    I just went back and checked it and I know why I didn't notice before - it was pretty obvious (to me at least) that you were headed toward a spoiler so I stopped. No worries!

    My FAVORITE are the thread titles that say "Possible spoilers" so that I can stay far, far away!

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    You're a kind person. I sort of assume that if you go on a thread for something you haven't read or seen, you can't be too surprised if people reveal info through their enthusiasm. Oy vey! So many rules to remember... (lol) I apologize retroactively (and probably in advance) if I've forgotten to tag anything in a thread.

    Yeah, but what if the story in the next books take place before the events of the 1st? Then the characters in the 1st keep their closure "untouched". And this you can't know until you read the next 2.
