Welcome to Biting-Edge, a blog shared by authors and vampire experts, Mario Acevedo and Jeanne Stein. We’ll cover urban fantasy, vampires, pop culture, and all things Joss Whedon. Unlike other fantasy blogs, we don’t insist on body cavity searches (unless you ask politely). Snarkiness is most welcome...though we won't promise not to bite back!

  Mario and The Magical Mystery Tour
Jeanne here.

Right away I have to admit that I made a BIG mistake. Before Mario left, I told him if he'd send pics I'd post them today, Thursday, MY DAY....

And since dealing with a whiny Mario is worse than the any dire doomsday scenario you can imagine, I'm going to fulfill my part of the bargain. The good news is that Mario isn't in any of the pics. When you see who he was traveling with, you'll understand why I say that. There's nothing more disgusting than a drooling man. Unless it's that pimp line phone...


Mario: Cherie Priest and Caitlin Kittridge with their casino balloon drinks in Las Vegas.
Me: I didn't think Caitlin was old enough to drink.


Mario: Cherie Priest, Caitlin Kittridge, and Vicki Pettersson in the Clark County Public Library before our talk and signing.
Me: Hence the remark about the drooling.


Mario: Mark Henry using the awesome Pimp Line phone in a Vegas collectibles (junk) shop.
Me: Only a man would call the "pimp line" phone awesome. Only Mark Henry could manage to look like he's used it before.


Mario: us in San Diego at Mysterious Galaxy.
Me: I wish I'd been there. MG is one of my favorite stores...no snarkiness, just jealousy.

Mario: in line to get the world famous and celebrity endorsed Pink's hotdogs.
Me: So what does a world famous and celebrity endorsed Pink's hotdog taste like? Trust Mario to leave out the most important part.


Mario:Richelle Mead and boyfriend in (Seattle) Palomino's the last night of the tour.
Me: I love Richelle. Not in the biblical sense. I love her writing, I mean.

I'm sure this will not be the last we hear about this trip. In fact, I'd bet on it. Between our blog and The League of Reluctant Adults, which Mario, Mark, Caitlin and Cherie are all apart of, there'll be pictures galore and accounts of Mario being thrown out of bars and getting laughed at by call girls. I told him before he left, leave the coin jar at home. It'll work on the slots, but the working girls like the folding green. I'm sure he didn't believe me.

He never does.

One last note: You have until tomorrow at midnight to enter our contest.
Answer this question in 250 words or less:

If you could spend one unbridled night with any fictional character in the world, who would it be? Why? What would you do?

Prizes: Legacy, Many Bloody Returns, magnets and pens from me—Jailbait Zombie, buttons and a devil duck from Mario. Deadline: Midnight Sat. March 21—Mario and I constitute the panel of judges and our decision is final (that sounds SO official, doesn’t it?) The winner will be announced on the Biting Edge March 26—

Now, I’ve gotten a few entries with just names and addresses. I think what we have here is a lack of communication. For such a fabulous cache of prizes, you have to work.

Send your entries to: Jeanne@jeannestein.com
In the subject line, please put “contest”

Next week, back to our regularly scheduled program!
 
Comments:
They all have fabulous hair. Particularly Cherie and Vicki. I can has attack of the jealousies ;-)

And I emailed my entry for the contest, as written about 10 minutes before midnight. Brain is silly, and I didn't bother to proofread or revise that email. Oh well, something for you to chuckle about whilst drinking your beer and composing your beer newsletter ;-) Don't snort; it's unladylike...

Have a lovely day! :-)
 
@Jeanne:

I haven't entered because -- well, I've already read all the books and figured somebody else should get them. And I have Herman, my beloved Devil Duck (who is staring at me right now and wagging his horns at me).

I'd be happy to enter if you promise to give the goods to somebody who needs them more than me.
 
Tez-- can't wait to read your entry! I never snort, btw. I AM a lady, after all. I don't sweat, either, I glow.

Gina-- you may enter if you wish. If we choose your entry, you deserve to win!!!

J.
 
They look like they're having a blast!

Cost to get to shop for Pimp Line phone: $5.00
Cost of Pimp Line phone: $13.50
Cost of Mark Henry's expression as he uses Pimp Line phone: PRICELESS!
:D

I entered the contest as well. When I read my entry over I noticed that I am such a dork! It was a bit of a revelation for me. Haha.
 
How'd those two guys get so lucky as to be travelling with such beauty?
 
Fab pics!

THe tot wants to know if Anna got her letter. She wears her ring all the time, the beads too.

Did you catch dollhouse last night? Wow. It just gets more and more complex.

Have a great day.

~Suzi
 
Hey Suzanne-- I was going to email you and voila, here you are! Yes, I got the tot's letter and it will go up on my keeper bulletin board. The envelope, too-- loved the art work!!!

Dollhouse was great and next week looks even better! What fun!

I guess Life on Mars has been canceled. Bummed about that-- I liked that program, too.

Tell the tot Anna says hi.
J.
