« She’s talking about me!
Thanks to everyone for all the photos. You are all the bestest and most wondrous people EVER! As Jeff Fenech would say, “I love youse all!”
It was kind of weird to see how many photos there are of me and Scott I never knew existed. Eerie even . . .
I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologise to my sister, Niki Bern, as well as my good friend, Cat Sparks. I’m sorry I’m always so recalcitrant about having my photo taken. You were both right that some day I would be happy you both insist on documenting everything.
That said, I now no longer need to have my photo taken ever again. Hallelujah! I shall keep intact what tiny bit of my soul is left.
Because some of you have expressed curiosity here is one photo for every year Scott and me have been together. Enjoy! We certainly have.

CAPTION CONTEST FOR LAST FOTO:
“Abracadabra! I am MAGIC SCOTT! And this is my lovely assistant, Miss Justine! I have pulled her from a hat! Now for my next trick . . . I will need a rabbit, an ordinary handkerchief, and the finger of one volunteer . . .”

Not in the least. Lurve documenting should be mocked. It’s absurd!
Sadly, it is a necessity for us at the moment—the documenting of our lurve, I mean, not the mocking. Though maybe the mocking is necessary too. You know, just to get us through . . .

I love your dress in that last picture! You look very nice.

So what secret power is that keeps you guys from aging a single day? I think we should be told.

I feel that I need to say something creative, but all I can come up with is “awww.”
So there you have it. XD
January 31st, 2008 at 10:12 PM
But why do you have to adopt? I don’t get that part.
Hmph. Me so confused!!
January 31st, 2008 at 10:14 PM
Because YA authors must set good examples to their readers be remaining completely chaste. There is also no drinking, smoking, or caffeine allowed. Cursing, however, is acceptable.
Isn’t that so, Justine?

YA Authors should never age. Then they can write more books. Forever and ever! *cue evil laughter*
Even though that would be pretty cool…

Did you guys get married at Mohonk?!
(Romantic sigh) That’s where me & mine got engaged, at the top of the lookout tower…my fingers were all swollen from the rock climb, and he couldn’t get the ring on me…
