you are way to nice, feeding your dog tootsie pops. (but then, it's not the chocolate one, so maybe it's ok) The chocolate ones are to die for (no canine puns intended, lol) :)

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Let us know the answer, OK?? :)

Jeanna said...

Nah, I just took the photo op and taunted him a little. He got me back yesterday, the big ol' doofus.
Great minds, Jodi, chocolate are my favorite too.

Jeanna said...

Hey Olga, the owl from the commercial took three, I counted up to 40 something once, and Stupid.com has a handy lick counter you might want to look into.

C said...

LOL! As a kid, I always thought it was impossible for that owl to do it in THREE! I always lost count after ten.

Jodi and Jeanna, the chocolate ones are my fave too!!! I was a picky kid and since I was the only girl out of twelve boys (2 brothers and the rest cousins), I always got to pick first. I'd always pick the chocolate, of course! Orange was second pick, but gosh, the chocolate ones are goooooooooood!

Jeanna said...

Hey C., let me know if your package doesn't get there by the end of the week.
It worked out fine because Karen wanted the cherry, I wanted the chocolate, and the kids fought over the blue raspberry.
I used to like orange until I had one too many Tootsie Roll Pops (creme de cocoa, vodka, and orange juice) in college.

Roscoe and the Vixen are tootsielicious!

Jeanna said...

Roscoe's become a "problem child" at the dog park because Miss Vickers is too sick to join him.

I'm pretty sure first rights are seperate from all others, and e-rights are something that's up in the air right now. So you retain second printing rights--I think.

these are a couple of good sites, if you don't have them already

http://www.hipiers.com/publishing.html

thats the one for the piers anthony internet publishing site, he's like a clearing house. If there's a particular person you want to know about, if they're ok or not.

this is the one you can ask questions at, if you don't already belong. Just google Absolute write water cooler and drop down to the right sub forum.

you can also go here, it has the standard contracts with a breakdown
http://www.epicauthors.com/contract.html

also you can check out their site to see if they have anything you can use.

if I find anything else, I'll let you know, or I'll ask Amanda, but she's not back online until tomorrow.

Uncivil said...

What's wrong with Miss Vickers? Hope it's nothing serious!

Eamon said...

What's that the dog is going to gulp?

Jeanna said...

Hey James, I don't know, Karen had to carry her home from a short walk the other day and she's upchucked her dinner a few times. I would have had her in the doggie ER pronto, but I'm a worry wart and just the favorite cousin.

Jeanna said...

Hey there Eamon, I was getting a photo of a Tootsie Roll Pop and Roscoe. He didn't get any candy unless the kids dropped some on the floor.

Jeanna said...

Thanks, Jodie, I don't know this stuff like I should. They kind of lumped it all together and a couple of other writers objected, so I'll try to educate myself.
You are a true font of info my little boll weevil.

C said...

Oh, cool! Thanks, Jeanna!
By the way, how are things in your neck of the woods?

I'm feeling rather uninspired with the blog these days. Hopefully something will grab my attention and make me want to post again. *sigh*

Jeanna said...

Hey C., crazy. And not the good kind of crazy. Think I'll write a little song about it:
Doctors can eat me
The nurses can too
It's six in the morning
I'm moving to the zoo.
Oooh, oooh,
Oooh, oooh.

Amber said...

Does the number of licks decrease as the size of the tongue increases? I think dogs would have an advantage in a licking contest. We may need to create tongue-length categories. :)

Jeanna said...

Hi Amber, sorry I didn't see your comment until so late. Dang email.
Roscoe here gets very little candy by my hand. I don't think he got a single lick off that Tootsie Pop.
