Let me hasten to clarify for the benefit of the fickle publishing gods that this woman is my bonus mom, my second family, and therefore that she cannot help all this hubris on my behalf. :p</p> felicity Oops 2008-02-27T09:10:46+00:00 2008-02-27T09:10:46+00:00 <p>Moore.

The pen debt will turn out to be a bonus, because when you become more famous than she is, she will have an authentic excuse to approach YOU at a reading or book signing, while your other devoted fans look on enviously, wishing THEY owed you pens! <br /> <blockquote>Ms. Shoulders? You probably don&#8217;t remember me, but&#8230; you loaned me your pen one time back at Stanford, and I&#8217;ve been waiting all this time for an opportunity to return it to you&#8230;Oh, and since you have a pen right there handy and all, would you mind just signing this book for me, please?</blockquote> LadyLong
