That's okay, I'm a bitch to cook for. Give me the Chef Boyardee and I'll eat in the back yard. Smile

Well, seeing as how I don't throw dinner parties, I just assumed. But you're welcome to make someone else cook for me, that'd be dandy.

This is a good way to put it. I liked the story overall; strong writing, voice, all the technical aspects are great. My issue, I guess you could say, was with this "horrible cuteness." I felt like it was, basically, too cute. Too silly. The part where they actually call Karen and tell her and nobody really cares is the part that really irked my sense of..."correctness." That being said, I've never been much of a fan of dark humor and such; I guess I'm old-fashioned in my visions of horror. Razz

But really, it's a good piece. Just me nitpickin'.
I initially voted to reject this story for the very same reason, but now I love it.

This ranks as one of my favorites from the issue. It was fucking hilarious, and had a bizarreness to it that was almost charming, as sick as the story being told was.
