And here I was hoping this would mean 'tiny bites of battle'. :D

You're as bad as that other one, constantly feeding me plot bunnies... although, I will admit thinking it sounded like something Zayne would say as I typed it out.

(But I love you both, promise)

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.....

Or Latin for

My bad.

You are right it does sound like something Zayne would say...lol

Hah. Never apologize for keeping me occupied. It's never good when I get bored, just sayin'.

Hee! I think I've figured out a way to work this in with the cocktail dress we were discussing. Poor Andy might just move back to Bucharest when I'm done.

Poor Andy....

Who has the legs to pull off the cocktail dress, Jay or Zayne?

Andy's a trooper, he'll survive!

That's the $50,000 question right now. I was leaning towards James but now I'm not sure.

I'd go for Jay, so Zayne can bust his chops about it.

That's kind of what I was thinking, too. Not to mention he can talk Andy's ear off about it, adding to Andy's angst. :D

Too bad Andy can't withhold sex. Life would
be better for him, maybe.

I have a feeling that, if he tried, the girls would wind up locking Andy and Zayne (and possibly James) in an interrogation room until they *sorted it out*. Because you know Zayne would be UNBEARABLE and James would just be cranky.

He shouldn't have ever left Paris, methinks. :D It's too cold in Romania.

It only took a month, but I finally wrangled that plot bunny.

That they do! And they've been suspiciously absent from my life so far this month!
