Porn? No.

09 Nov

Having finished my writing for a bit, because I am getting ready to bundle up Mr. Baby and head out to meet my wife, I was winding down by browsing some of the sites which get visits from me on a fairly regular basis.

And then it occured to me how many of them sound really dirty…

I visit Food Porn pretty regularly, because it gives me great ideas. And make sure, if you visit, that you click all over the place. See if you don’t wind up hungry and in the mood to make something.

I also visit Bookslut, because although the content is rarely along the lines of the sort of stuff I read, I enjoy reading about other books and other authors which would normally be outside my sphere. And the people who run this site are terrifically smart. I’d hate to go up against ’em.

And the finally, the site which I enjoy perhaps most of all is Bookgasm, where I get interesting reviews of books I wasn’t planning to read in the first place, reviews of books I have read, and just general enjoyable book chatter. A very enjoyable place. I used to have it as my homepage, until I realized that it could eat my day if I wasn’t careful. Now, I don’t even have a link to it on my Firefox bar. I only go when I remember.

Oh! And newly discovered this afternoon, and at which I spent a wonderful hour (not writing, you say? On the contrary, that was the hour I got two thousand words done) browsing Tea Muse, and I have not even scratched the surface there yet. I can anticipate plenty of time lost.

Also, in the art section, one of the first pieces is a Griffon with tea done by none other than Ursula Vernon, who is an AbsoluteWrite member and writer and artist of the brilliant, brilliant, utterly magnificant, I-cannot-say-enough-good-things-about-it online web-comic, Digger. You should go read Digger too. Honestly, it’s like Jeff Smith’s Bone, mixed with Mouse Guard, mixed with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, mixed with David Sim’s Cerberus. And it’s brilliant.

Now, off to eat a burrito and spend a lovely evening with my wife, and then sacrifice that most precious of commodities to a parent, sleep, so that I may get an astonishing amount of writing done tonight and wow you all. (Probably not. But maybe I’ll wow myself a tiny bit.)

Also, whoever wins the Tea Debacle is going to really like the tea they get from me. I know the Debacle page says Earl Grey, but that is only partly an accurate description. This is my own tea. I call it Epitome Tea. The caffeine level alone is enough to send your heart into another dimension. It will be perfected by the end of the month. (Does this encourage or scare you? Bound to do one or the other…)

    Bwhuahahahaaha! *cough* Ha ha ha *cough* ahem.

    Ask not, for whom the Tea brews. It brews, for Thee!

    Are you making up catchphrases for my tea…?

    You need a life. 😉

    Or a writing contest to hold your attention or something!

    We need t-shirts that say

    “DISEASE – I HAZ IT” or “MY DISEASE – LET ME SHOW YOU IT”

    That would be a festive Christmas gift!
