Notes from the day

Random notes taken during my workday.

* Ever wanted to hear “Raindrops keep falling on my head” played by an old dot-matrix printer?

* Also via Dvorak, a nice quint little community site set up by a community around a plant that incinerates dangerous chemicals. The creepiest part of the site is the Fun Page where kiddies can get pictures of “Wally the Wise Turtle” to colour in, as well as a tiny flash game showing what to do in the even to fa chemical emergency… Would be hilarious if it wasn’t so scary.

* Justin, fondly known as bluepose on LJ, also has a more serious blog that he writes for work. His second-latest post (I’m still rather behind) is about the use of adverbs and how they insult the reader. He’s missed an important point though: This is even more true in erotic fiction. Forget “He ate the food hungrily” – there’s nothing worse than reading “He kissed her hungrily” pales in comparison to.. well, I’m no writer of erotic fiction, so I’ll leave it to you to come up with something better.

* The same thing applies, of course, to cybersex, only more so. Don’t tell me that you’re giving me an awesome blowjob, tell me exactly what your tongue is doing, what your hands are doing…
