Perfect advice for this morning.

I did indeed 'try again later' and the day seemed far more relaxed.

I've always run my life like this.  I didn't know there was another way.

But I am puzzled why a group calling itself Bee Cycling would use a red panda as its logo.  I mean, it's not as if anyone could confuse them.  If it's got its nose stuck in a flower, it's a bee.  If it's wearing a highwayman's mask, it's a red panda.

And if we're being strictly accurate about this, neither of them rides bicycles.

Not that we are aware of.  But who knows for certain?  There may be secret clubs of musclebound bees cycling around like lunatics.  Probably doped up like Lance Armstrong.

I've only ever seen one Red Panda 'live' and that was just a small bit of red fur showing up in a tree.  For all I know it could have been a a bit of fake fur nailed up there.  I certainly wasn't going to waste any film, (remember that stuff), to prove I'd seen it.  On that same trip I did photograph a Zebra giving birth.

Don't see much point in a tree-dwelling panda having a bicycle.  Even knobbly mountain bike tyres wouldn't be much help on a vertical trunk.

Romancelandia is actually a club/meeting place for romance writers. So I assume that explains everything.

Gyppo

Maybe not everything, but it explains a lot ;-)

Jo Bannister

So...do romance writers ride bicycles?  While sniffing flowers and wearing a highwayman's mask?  This explanation is no explanation at all!

Gyppo

Or maybe they ride flowers whilst sniffing bicycle seats?  This would at least explain their desire to wear a highwayman's mask.

Where does the bodice ripping come in? Is that on a bike? With a flower? Or is that the bee's knees when wearing a highwayman's mask?
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Gyppo

The 'bodice ripping' can only be caused by a 'heaving bosom'.  And the mask may be nothing more than theatrical artifice, designed  to isolate and exaggerate the effect of the 'flashing dark eyes'.

I'm getting the vapors reading this stuff.

That's but a step away from 'tactile tremors tripped teasingly across her tanned torso as her legs parted, with a restless instinct of their own volition.'

OK Gyppo, well, now your secret is out!  You clearly write for Mills & Boon under a pseudonym.  I always wondered who Chardonnay VanDam was - I never imagined it was an ageing martial artist with a beard you could lose a badger in!


Gyppo

Chardonnay VanDam.  I like it ;-)  But it would have to be a small badger.

A little alliteration goes a long way in some styles of writing.

I'm told that 'Thrills & Swoon' have nearly always had a few male writers on their books.

The person helping me with scoring my son's CrossFit Games weekend was an author. I knew that going in. I asked what she wrote. Gay porn. It would have been nice to know that ahead of time. I could have thought up some questions. How did she know what gay men liked was the first one I had. I don't remember what her answer was, but she was successful in her craft.
