Oh well, he ain't gonna be my agent. But if he picks you, feel free to give me vicarious thrills  ;)  ;)

Wait - are we allowed to be lusting after agents here? 

What is this - the QT Hot Tub or something?!

I understand that you do not represent commercial fiction, but I'm querying you anyway because you are a total hottie and I think we should explore many waterfalls together..."

I think lusting after any agent is against everything we stand for!!  It's us agianst them, until one of them represents us, that is.

ummm, I believe he's confessing to being Danielle Steel, not lusting after her (her agent, now, that's another question entirely)

OK, new girlfriend.  Renee Zellweger.  Can you grant me that one?

alright. One Renee Z. coming right up...since you and Lo aren't getting your leftover tonight (no one but me is home, and I don't feel like making myself anything to eat)
So you can just eat Ms. Zellweger!
