Prop Shopping & Beta Help  
I'd forgotten how much I love shopping for props.

The look on the lady's face was priceless.  I'm at a thrift store, a kind of nice one, actually, looking for items that we need for The Lonesome West.  I'd been looking around for a while, and  a clerk came over to me and asked, "Are you looking for anything specific?"

I smiled and answered, "Yeah.  A crock pot, a shotgun and a crucifix."

To be honest, I knew I wasn't going to get a shotgun at a thrift store, but it was too, too funny.

I'm easily amused, I guess.

On a completely separate note, I know everyone is completely covered up with contests and exchanges, but I have some story ideas I'd like to bounce off of someone... as well as have them run a beta-eye over them.  My primary beta has so much of my stuff that I think it's choking her, and I haven't been able to post anything in a while because she's so busy.  It wouldn't be anything long term, like a two year long chaptered fic, just a couple of one, maybe two-shots.  Anyone up to being a part-time beta to a properly appreciative author?

Incidentally, I found the crock pot at that thrift store.  The lady was all too happy to sell it to me and get me the heck out of her store.  I'm pretty sure she thought I was a deranged, sacreligious girl who liked to slow-cook things in her spare time.  =D

Perhaps I am!  *insert icon sound*

I'm up for a spot of bouncing and betaing (as long as it doesn't have anything to do with a certain competition *g*). I'm heading to bed really soon, but I will be on tomorrow night :)

Thank you!
I know I've emailed things to you in the past, but I can't seem to find your address. Which one would you like me to use? Mine's persephone3333@gmail.com

The look on that poor woman's face was priceless. The funniest part is that all of those things are integral to the plot. *g*

I love messing with people. Probably too much.

I would have amused me! It does actually *laughs*

Oh, and now that I'm done with finals (woot!) I can do some beta work for you if you'd like. I'm still in school mode, so my skillz are fresh!

I don't think I've ever sent you an email, but if you send me your address, I've got an idea I'd like to bounce off of you.

You can always send things my way, at least for a quick beta!
Carrie Leigh: just wickedcarrie_leigh on March 16th, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
You got it! Thanks so much!

*giggles some more* Perse, can I keep you in my head when I need a laugh? Because you are very, very good at it. I suppose I'm a deranged, sacrilegious girl too because I found that immensely funny. The poor lady. *meehee*
