Today some BDSM Ephemera, Master's Valentine's To Do List As a dom, I've made lists like this. I'm a planner.

I'm also liking the "Ephemera" series, as the are emails, letters, to-do lists, found items and so forth about a single couple's relationship. (None require reading the others, though)

Thanks +Penelope Jones! I feel (and the Dom in the story probably even more than me) that if you've got something to do, it should go on your to do list. It's the only way to be sure :)

Spent some time making art for my February Game, Match Invaders, and I pretty much hate all of it.  So I'm going to redo it all.  I need the practice, but I'll almost certainly spend more time futzing with art and art assets compared to coding the game.  

This is what frustrates me every time, and probably why the January game is in Twine -- once I started work on that, it just flowed out with no resistance.  This is like every moment is a freaking battle. 

That's learning things, I guess. Particularly things outside your comfort zone.  But.... grrrr....

I'm looking forward to releasing today's story out into the wild. Just 3.5 hours;)

If the Pope is the infallible word of god, it's not so much he quit, as he was fired.

Not so much, +Joe Tortuga . It went more like this:
YHWH and Asherah get married, settle down, create a universe, fuck like rabbits, and everything's great. But before you know it, Asherah's the one bringing home more followers, she's got people building cities, banging temple prostitutes, and generally having an awesome time. YHWH's got some goat fuckers out in the desert. You can see where this is going- YHWH's old school, he can't take that. They end up getting a divorce.

That's the Old Testament.

Eventually, things get kind of worked out, and YHWH gets visitation. Now, he wants to be the "good dad", the "cool dad", just to spite Asherah. So it turns into a, "What do you want to do, Jesus? Oh, you want to go down to Earth and start a new religious sect? GO FOR IT! Oh, Mom said you couldn't? Well, don't repeat this, but your Mom is a bitch. Go on down to Earth. It's okay!"

Well, we saw how that worked out. Fortunately, getting killed in mortal form doesn't count as child endangerment, or really anything more than a mild inconvenience. But Jesus went down, made a bunch of friends, and everybody's like, "I love Jesus!" but YHWH is all, "You mean you love me. It's cool. We should hang out."

Suddenly, YHWH is the "cool" dad, who keeps trying to poach his kid's friends. Nobody wants to say anything to either of their faces, and it's all terribly awkward and weird. YHWH keeps giving his kid's friends wine, and acting like it's totally okay. You keep wondering when he's going to hook up with Jesus's girlfriend.

At least, that's about how I understand it.

So, I'm looking for good adult and/or erotic Choose Your Own Adventure style books. Preferably electronic. Suggestions?

The version of "Across the Universe" on this page kind of messes with my mind, in a good way.

This is an interesting map, although I wonder how much the newly drawn lines are groups that have similar desires politically, particularly in the cases of combined states.  "Scioto" the part of Ohio I live in will be divided just like we are now, with a very blue city in the middle of a red ocean, but what do the Hawaiian Islands and Portland have as common interests.  (Thinking particularly about things that are about geography -- maybe shipping, maybe environmental, but what about tourism? Those seem very different from each other)

You know, it seems a little redundant to have both the House and the Senate configured by geography. Perhaps one of the chambers should be organized differently. This made more sense in the original configuration. Now we just have so many rotten boroughs.

If I ever doubted that I was poly, that doubt is dispelled when I spend time with just +Kathryn Tortuga and +Tam Tortuga (and sometimes the kid) just doing anything with them, be it talking about things, planning meals, having dinner or playing guild wars.

There's a feeling of completeness and contentment that washes over me when I know this is where I need to be, this is how I want things to be.  This is love, and it is my home.

As much as I love both of them, and get small bits of that when we're in our dyads, the feeling when we're all together is so much stronger and truer.  This is my life, and I love being in it.  And no one can tell me it isn't right.

It certainly helps you power through a Thursday, I agree;)

Hmm, not really. The closest things I know of are by these guys:

There's romance but from what I saw nothing explicit. AFAICT they never get beyond mild bodice ripping.

Story
Introduction
It says to put a bit here to be sure you found the right Joe Tortuga.  I don't know of another one, so you found me all right.

I'm a game and erotica blogger who is a kinky bisexual man. I write a lot, and I program for the web for a living and fun.

I do what I can to mark my links properly since I occasionally link to NSFW things (like my stories;)
