QA, Ponies, Rope and weird music mixes.
[Work]
War Room yesterday was a rousing success. We started or completed approximately 8% of the open issues for our two apps. It was fantastic and the developers want to do it again next week. I am tah Winar!

[Me]
Feeling antsy, frenetic even. The weather last night was dynamic and perfect; this morning it is gorgeous. I don't want to be at my desk. Given the nature of this antsiness, I have a few ideas of what I'd rather be doing right now and it looks like that is unlikely today. Saddness. Best laid plans, ne?

Maybe part of it is the bowl of Fruity Rice Krispies I had for breakfast but judging by afew other gagues that aren't affected by sugar, I think it's that spring antsiness.

[Rope/Art/Photography]
I'm listening to Rope Weekly archives which makes me very happy. This one is from last year's Shibaricon. graydancer is talking about pony girls which was a really entertaining joke when I was in college, all ishtar_star's fault. I can't take them seriously; some fetishes/erotica/kinks amusing me in a completely non-sexual manner and that is certainly one of them.

TwistedMonk's rope appeared Monday. I've not used it yet. Monday, Fox and I had late work nights and yesterday was a fury cooking and then collapse with strganoff and pie. I'm feeling the itch to tie especially after re-perusing more of Odd-art breast harness gallery. I feel the need to prove to myself, maybe to others as well, that I can produce aesthetically pleasing rope as well as capture it on (digital) film. I think part is that I didn't get pictures from Kink(ed) of waht I did or what other's were doing, not that my camera would have been able to get anything good in that lighting, but still. I feel art deprived. I'm also deathly curious of that shit-tastic poly rope I bought (75ft for a dollar) looks good on film. It has decent sheen, so I dunno. T'would be funny.

I write about rope a whole lot these days.

I woke up with a fucked up combination of Leisure Suit Larry 1 (1.1 Ogg Vorbis file) theme music mixed with Spiel Mit Mir (lyrics) stuck in my head.

I'd like to be sleeping, myself. -_-

Waking up to LSL? I can only wonder what your REM was about that would leave you in that mixer.

I dream about sex a whole lot these days...
zesty_pinto From: zesty_pinto Date: May 17th, 2006 02:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's funny.

Appropriately, my dreams haven't involved sex for some time. I think my dreams are getting celibate. Why can't I get more dreams about cool stuff like flying or transformers? :P

You'd rather dream about car robots than sex? You're an odd duck...
zesty_pinto From: zesty_pinto Date: May 17th, 2006 03:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh yeah?
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 03:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Do you deny it?
zesty_pinto From: zesty_pinto Date: May 17th, 2006 03:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
I honestly think I've gone asexual sometimes. If I didn't have someone hit on me once every few months, I'd totally believe it.
evilevi From: evilevi Date: May 17th, 2006 03:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Moi aussi. (See my reply to Fox's dream post.)

Actually, it just hit me that I dream about sex with *men* a lot these days, which is historically unusual.

I have that affect on people. Interesting stuff. I'm more surprised that I've been dreaming about specific people. Well, no. I suppose that for the first time in my life I'm dreaming about speific people I may actually sleep with which never really hapened before.

When I was young(er) it was fantasy and wishfulfilment.... Now it's like planning sessions.
evilevi From: evilevi Date: May 17th, 2006 04:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
That icon is ever so distracting.

Do I get to find out what you're planning?
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 04:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nothing elaborate, at least not until I get more rope. :)
evilevi From: evilevi Date: May 17th, 2006 05:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
That icon is also distracting.

Or maybe it's more that the icon is nice and I am distracted.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 05:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think you may be distractable and I'm certainly not helping. I have my Verona meeting as normal tis week. :)
evilevi From: evilevi Date: May 17th, 2006 05:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah. :)

Yes, I am distractable and you are Distraction.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 05:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Excellent; I have earned capital letters.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: May 17th, 2006 02:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Pony girls?
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 02:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Rope bridle, cleverly placed flogger like the one in the Midori video. Looks like a pony...
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: May 17th, 2006 02:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah. Ok. Heh...
techdragon From: techdragon Date: May 17th, 2006 03:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
As opposed to real Pony Girls?

*confused*
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 03:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
What confuses you? I said nothing about real pony girls. I just had to describe the concept to Fox....
techdragon From: techdragon Date: May 17th, 2006 03:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
I wasn't sure if you were describing that which made up part of the "really entertaining joke when I was in college" or the concept of pony girls which would differ from your definition....
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 04:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Both, I'd thought. My description is similar to the desciption in the podcast though the flogger/plug with the bridle were what ishtar_star saw that started the jokes.
techdragon From: techdragon Date: May 17th, 2006 04:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hmm..

Mistress Jade has "ponies" and her gear (and most pony play) is much more complicated than just a "Rope bridle and cleverly placed flogger". I haven't seen the Midori video... most of the times the tail is a real horsehair tail attached to a buttplug and there is so much more involved with bits and bridles so I was confused
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: May 17th, 2006 03:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm excited for that rope... it's very pretty.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 03:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
I just realized he sent me the wrong quantities. I ordered 2 30ft lengths and 1 fifteen and he sent me 2 15s and 1 30. That's why I didn't think I had much rope.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: May 17th, 2006 03:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah.... oops.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 17th, 2006 04:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I'll email him when I get home, send a picture to verify I'm not cheating him. sad but both orders I've made to Twisted Monk have been messed up in some fashion.

I need a general rope icon.
