We're Five!

We had a birthday and were too busy to remember! This blog launched five years ago, October 23, 2007. We hope you’ve found our 584 posts since then to be entertaining and informative.

So what would you give a group of opinionated editors for their blog birthday? Post your gift in Comments, and we’ll select the most fun and imaginative for a gift from us. What will it be? Hey, you’ll just have to wait to unwrap it.

Happy belated birthday to us.

A bottle of lovely wine, a big box of top of the line chocolates, and a large feather-quill pen with an inkwell filled with red ink.

The editors at EC are a wonderful, creative team of amazing people, truly. Thank you all for what you do for every author who works with you. My editor, Jillian Bell, is one of the best I have worked with, and I love her!!

Blessings to you all, and Happy Birthday, too!

A wonderful cake! Layers of white cake and a cream cheese/whip cream/powdered sugar spread with a raspberry syrup/jelly covered in homemade chocolate fudge icing.

Cave men, of course!
Preferably Cyborgs carrying jars of Nutella.

I'd opt for a wide selection sex toys for women! I've enjoyed many of your posts. You ladies rock!

Marianne Stephens said...

Three meals a day for a week, prepared and served by Cavemen...who will also do daily massages and dance for your dining pleasure.
And...roses and chocolates...lots of them!

Duct tape! oops. I meant oodles of champagne and chocolate and naked guys - oh and duct tape.

I would give them anonymous Twitter accounts and free rein. :D

Since you're a group rather than just one person, I'd definitely do a gift basket. It would include wine, chocolate, maybe a gift card or two, and definitely something relaxing like bath salts. Since you ladies see the Cavemen from time to time, it should be delivered by someone different. Like maybe a man in a suit ala James Bond. Or perhaps a super hero? You should get to decide on that one. ;-)

We're definitely liking the food suggestions. Duct tape, hmmm--so many potential uses for that.

Spa day at the next conference served by the Cavemen.

Three hours each in my new SexMachine(TM) virtual reality booth. You'll need to fill out detailed questionnaires so the SexMachine(TM) knows just how to wish each of you the happiest of birthdays once you have suited up. But the questionnaire is a fun time in itself, I promise.

A week-long trip to Jamaica to be waited on hand and foot by gorgeous men. :) Oh, and there will be rum.

A virtual month-long vacation in one of my alternative dimensions, minus the demons. A tropical setting with hunky men serving yummy drinks, and delicacies and offering massages or whatever you wish. :) The vacation is a month long but since this is an alternative dimension, time is warped. Actual time away from work will be 30 minutes but it'll feel like a month.

There must be cake, of course. Several different kinds. :)

Champagne and chocolates.

And a special red pen, maybe set with a diamond. (Or at least set with a pretty crystal.)

I've worked with four different editors over my years with EC and have loved working with every single one of them!

A fireplace, bear-skin rug and a few of the Cavemen. Oh, and frosting, plenty of frosting.

Happy Birthday.
