“I don’t really think about the audience during my sex scenes. Getting naked feels better some days than others. (Good: when you are vaguely tan. Bad: when you have diarrhea.) But I do it because my boss tells me to. And my boss is me.”

To let loose.
To let people in.
To write. And write. And then write some more.
A friend of mine challenged me to complete this list. I challenge anyone who comes across this page. I would love to hear of your favourite books.
Here is the challenge: “List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way and tag ten people to do the same. Don’t take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard. They don’t have to be the “right” books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way.”

2. The Tent by Margaret Atwood
3. Different Seasons by Stephen King

Hello photography friends!
I’ve been thinking about getting a new camera, specifically a DSLR. I’m not an amateur, but I’m also not a professional photographer. To put it simply, I want something that will take clear photographs and has good focus (for macro photography). Something with video and sound would be nice as well.
A lot of people have suggested Nikon’s D7000. What are your thoughts? Does anyone have any other suggestions? If so, please let me know.
We’re having an ice storm in Ontario. Very pretty but very dangerous. I hope everyone is staying safe.
