 From Vance to the fans!

Hey everyone, Vance here.

First off, I would like to thank you all for your overwhelming support.  It’s nice to be appreciated by so many despite all my flaws.  I personally fail to see what the big draw is for all you ladies, but if you feel the need to have your little “Vance fests” over me then who am I to stop you?  Carry on and enjoy yourselves.  I don’t mind. (Flashes a sexy grin)

I do have to say that some of you seem pretty feisty, which is kind of fun to watch if I’m being truthful.  However, that being said, there are a few things I should probably mention.

First off, to the wonderful lady who keeps contacting me—thank you so much for loving me, for promoting me, and for all the emails and tweets, but girl, as fun as I’m sure it would be, I don’t think Portia would appreciate it if I tried to help you have a baby.   But thank you so much for considering me worthy to add to your gene pool. (gives a wink)

To the fun group of gals from overseas—yes I am a healer, and while I would be honored to hop on a plane and come use my powers to help you out when needed, I do not serve comfort food shirtless, or cuddle up in thick blankets with my “patients” to warm them back to health. (chuckles a bit) Nor do I spoon feed, or nurse in any capacity.  I’ll just lay my hands on your skin and get the deed done real quickly. (shakes head) Wow. That sounded really bad. I just totally emasculated myself.

(A female voice with a Scottish accent cat calls from the audience: “Take your shirt off!”  Vance surprises everyone when he happily obliges with a giant smile, cocking that sexy eyebrow at the crowd while he does a couple of flexes much to the delight of swooning women everywhere!  He laughs out loud at the response and puts his shirt back on to dismayed boos from the fans!  He just grins and brushes them off with a hand and continues.)

You liked that did you?  Well then you can join me in this little rant to my dear author when I say “What gives, Lacey?”  While I appreciate you have written me to be uber hot and sexy, what does a guy have to do to catch a break with you?  Why don’t you come over here sweetheart and let me make out with you for a bit.  When I finally get you all hot and bothered we’ll just suddenly change up the scene or fade to black!  That’s so not right to leave me hanging like that all the time!  Let a guy have a little fun once in a while! (He grins as crowd cheers again.)  See!  The women want it too! (He nods to them appreciatively.) You gals are great!  I hope you all have some lucky guy in your life who appreciates you!
 
For anyone else I may have missed I truly enjoy your attention and strive to be worthy of it.  It’s been a lot of fun to get to read your comments and remarks about me, but I’ve got to go now.  My baby’s waiting for me to tuck her into bed and that’s an appointment I never miss.

Goodnight ladies.  Sweet dreams.
