    Twitter had a bit of fun Monday at the expense of EL James.

    The hashtag "AskELJames" trended nationwide as the "Fifty Shades of Grey" writer took questions, including some not-ready-for-prime-time doozies, but surely she's immune at this point to hurt feelings.

    Among the printable, cheeky queries:

    — "Is it true that you're actually just a burlap sack full of bad ideas and spiders?"

    — "When do you think your writer's block will kick in? Signed Ev R Hopeful"

    — "did you use a blow up doll as your characterization inspiration for Ana?"

    — "Is it only ok for Christian to stalk, coerce, threaten & manipulate Ana because he's hot, or is it also ok because he's rich?"

    For those under rocks, James authored three books in an erotic trilogy involving BDSM sex between a handsome, emotionally damaged billionaire and a young woman whom he introduces to his rough-sex lifestyle. She recently put out a fourth book that tells the story of the first book all over again from Christian Grey's point of view rather than that of Anastasia Steele.

    Oh, and there was a movie. Oh, and at least two more movies are planned.

    James let loose among questions she did answer that she has written another book and is halfway through yet another, adding:

    "Both romances. Not sure when I will finish them. (smiley face)."
