Bitten by Books is excited to welcome reporter Phoebe Mack today as our Freaky Friday guest! She will be talking with Fluff and Puff from the man eating magickal bunny slippers from Linda Wisdom’s book series. Fluff and Puff will be answering your questions today and tomorrow until noon Pacific time! Check out the contest at the end of this post! You could win a copy of the upcoming release Hex Appeal that Fluff and Puff snagged and are offering up as a prize today! Phoebe take it away…..
Welcome! I’m Phoebe Mack and I’m the lead reporter for the Dark of the Moon Times. The newspaper where you’ll find news no one else will report. The news no one can guess. The news that sounds made up but isn’t.
Fluff and Puff have graciously agreed to “tell all” about their housemates and fellow creatures. Talk about the ultimate interview! One that no one else has or will ever have. Just don’t expect to find carrot cake or chocolate in your local stores for the next five years. These guys don’t come cheap!
Phoebe – “Thank you for agreeing to talk to me, Fluff and Puff.”
Fluff (smoking a Cuban cigar – who knew?) – “We love talking to the press, Phoebe.”
Puff – “Not all the press, just any who will listen to us. The things we know.” (utters huge sigh)
Phoebe – “So guys, what’s it really like living with Jazz? Is she always that gorgeous?”
Puff – (laughing) – “Are you kidding? You haven’t seen her first thing in the morning, have you? Talk about major bed head, pillow creases, puffy eyes, and nasty? Man, no one talks to her before she’s had at least three cups of coffee. And she doesn’t even really cook, so she’s always stealing whatever Krebs eats. You’d think she’d use a glamour, so we wouldn’t have to see bad Jazz. Plus she has a pair of ratty old pjs that she seriously needs to toss. Even the rubber duckies don’t like them.”
Fluff – chiming in – “Not to mention, she’s had her share of zits and on a witch they ain’t pretty.”
Phoebe – “So she’s not this perky and lovely witch all the time?”
Puff – “Not even close and if you use the word perky around her she might zap you with a never-ending yeast infection.”
Phoebe – “I’ve heard her closet is limitless. Is that true?”
Fluff – “It holds a lot of clothes and we haven’t seen the wall. When she moved in, she fixed the closet and with her love of shopping, she needs something that holds everything.”
Phoebe – “Let’s move on to her mortal housemate Krebs? What’s he like?”
Puff – “He’s a nice guy, but man, he farts really bad! (nose scrunches up) And he doesn’t like it when we go upstairs where his computers are. Sheesh! You eat one CD and you’re banned.”
Fluff – “But he’s funny. And we think he’s got a secret Jazz won’t like.”
Phoebe (perking up) – “Really? What is it?”
Fluff – “We’ve tried to find out, but even our magic doesn’t work on his computers. Jazz made sure of that. There’s times she’s so not fun! And we can’t read his mind.”
Phoebe – it seems you’re banned from a lot of places. How come?
Puff – “We’ve been framed every time! We didn’t trash all those Midway booths at the boardwalk or eat all the funnel cakes. Jazz is the one addicted to funnel cake. Trust me, she can eat twice her weight in those things and that’s not a pretty sight either. We’re just these sweet harmless bunny slippers.” (offers up big bunny slipper eyes)
Phoebe – “Why can’t I believe that?”
Fluff – “No one does, but there’s nothing we can do about that!”
Phoebe – “And what’s this I hear that you call Irma scary?”
Puff – “You got it! That ghost is downright nasty. Sometimes she’s even nastier than Jazz. She’s stuck in 1956 and she doesn’t like it. She’s stuck in the T-Bird and she doesn’t like that either.”
Fluff – “But her digs aren’t that bad. Jazz set up a DVD/TV combo for her and she has tons of DVDs to watch. Not that she invites us out there for a movie night. She calls us monsters. (sniffs) She forgets we’re not the one who’s dead and stuck in a car. And she gets to go to more places than we do. So we don’t know why she complains so much.”
Phoebe – “And what about Nick? I hear he’s totally hot.”
Fluff – “Personally, he’s not our type. And he thinks he can make us behave. At least we let him think that. But the few times we’ve been at his lair with Jazz, well, (he makes a gagging noise) Puff and I had to totally cover our ears. But he’s cool although he’s been known to flash fang occasionally and when he and Jazz are having a battle, it can get pretty crazy. Magick flying everywhere, threats to stakes, fireballs sometimes, Nick willing to get sick on her blood just to drain her dry.”
Phoebe – “A love/hate relationship then?”
Puff – “Nah. I think they just love to fight because they can have hot monkey sex afterwards.”
Fluff – “AUGH! Don’t remind me!”
Puff – “Yeah, that was a wild night better left forgotten. I thought I’d need therapy.”
Phoebe – (leaning forward) “Tell me more!”
Puff – “Let’s just say that the steel door to Nick’s lair almost melted.”
Fluff – “There was an earthquake that night too and not because of Mother Earth either.”
Phoebe – “Oh my! Anything else”
“Fluff? Puff? Where are you?”
Puff straightens up. “Whoops! Jazz is here. Not a good thing.”
Phoebe – “But I have more questions!”
Fluff shakes his head. “Don’t call us. We’ll call you.” He and Puff disappear in the wink of an eye.
Phoebe, sighing “Don’t worry, folks. I won’t give up on them and we’ll find out more. Or perhaps I’ll try Irma next time or even Stasi’s gargoyle, Horace. Still, you read it here first at Bitten by Books!!”
