I learned that Isabella Ardigo is one hot lady. A Penthouse Pet in April 1979, I had forgotten all about her till I was going through some archives. When I saw her again I was taken back to my youth and how fascinated I was by this lady. Exotic, beautiful and cold, I see a lot of her in some of my current characters.
I learned that when I am really stressed with work, my favorite game to unwind is a free game you can download on the Internet. Spelunky is an old school platformer game that randomly creates the level every time you play. That means 50% of the time it is hilariously unfair and the other 50% of the time, you are doing high-fives with yourself because of your awesome skills.
I learned that an Ipod Nano rocks. 8 gigs on a device the size of my finger?
I learned that I still have a capacity for crude humor. I am enjoying Apocalypse Lane way too much. It is a web cartoon about a bunch of mutated losers. The main character is a foul mouthed three-legged cat named Cuddles. If you only watch one episode, watch the Poker Night one.
I learned that there are still sexy music videos out there that i haven’t seen.
I learned that even though I haven’t even published my Choose Your Own Porn story yet, I am itching to write another one. I suspect it comes from the fact that I gave up tabletop role-playing games to focus on my writing. Players always want to supply their own lines of dialogue damn it. In my Wizard’s Harem story, I got to create a sexy adventure and do all the cool hero dialogue. I want to do that again. The next adventure will take place on a space pirate ship and feature a submissive woman. I just have to clone myself and start writing it.
Most of all, I learned that December is a fucking busy time to try to get any real writing done.
