At World Fantasy, I was talking about my intense work habits, and how poor Gini had to deal with me vanishing downstairs to a darkened basement for an hour and a half every day to write.  And someone quipped, “You SAY you’re writing.”
To which I replied, “It’d be easier for her if I was masturbating. At least then I wouldn’t be calling her downstairs when I was done to go, ‘Can you take a look at this?  Am I doing this right?'”
