Some good news finally: someone I've been online-friends with has finally kink-propositioned me (after a few months of build-up), so I've got something to look forward to there.

This is good, because my other two regular kink partners are both unavailable (for different but kind of similar reasons) and I was feeling a bit despondent about that. And my usual inability to go out and chat up random people doesn't help - I attended a BDSM event a couple of weekends back and was basically unable to speak to anyone other than the bar staff. Still, it was good to check out a really well-done bondage scene. The drawbacks of attending events where I know NO-ONE.

Anyways, yay good news - we had an excellent chat over coffee for a few hours yesterday, and it seems that our various needs and goals are very compatible. I'm still not really going there with d/s, but that doesn't appear to be the most crucial thing required on the menu in any case.

In other news, I've had follow-ups with two more jobs, with a video conference interview on Thursday, but I'm not going to get too excited about that. I've had 3 sets of meaningful contact from recruiters and none of them have panned out. Well, I'm assuming not - if they ring for a half-hour's conversation and then I don't hear from them for a few weeks, it's not looking great.

Also, while I expect to take a big pay drop returning to NZ, there is a lower limit I'm not keen to go below (because I think even a decent desktop support person would earn it). It also doesn't help that I'm not up with the very latest Exchange stuff, nor do I know much about server virtualisation (well, I do know how to create basic virtual machines and so on, but I'm hardly a guru, nor have I done formal training in it). I had one job knock me back because I'd get "bored" with my experience. Frankly, I'd be happy with a bit of boredom right now. Sure, it may mean I won't stay in a boring job forever, but if you expect most people to stick around in a particular role in this industry for more than 3-5 years by default, you're going to be sadly disillusioned.

So, I was at a kinky party last night, and there was a lengthy quote written on a board from Proudhon, the anarchist, on the nature of being governed (controlled). Now, I assume it was there as an homage to the joys thereof in an interpersonal sense. Of course, unfortunately, Proudhon himself was defining it in order to diss it.

It did make me laff. To myself. Of course, if it was intended as irony, AWESOME.

Someone has done a hilarious blog of "Golden Age" Wonder Woman as an advice columnist. WW has always been surrounded by naughty naughty people, and she has lots of experience in making them behave. I knew there was a reason I was so fascinated by the Golden Lariat when I was a kidlet.

Q: [My best friend from school has remained single, while I'm married] She seems jealous and resentful of my marriage, and angry that she’s still single. Recently, she told me that she saw my husband at a bar kissing another woman, and has demanded that I confront him about it. I don’t believe her, but she says that if I don’t talk to him about it, she’ll break off our friendship! What should I do?

A: [Panel from Golden Age WW strip]: If girls want to be slaves, there's no harm in that.The bad thing is them submitting to a master or to an evil mistress like Paula! A good mistress could do wonders with them!

The rest of the entries are just as frickin' hilarious, and so are the panel selections. Go read them, or I'll have to find a lariat of my own, and maybe some chains and a pole to affix them to (essential items in the WW world).

...but I'd love to have one or more of these little dudes on my desk.

Well, my brain went into some wierd zone today (after some provocation which I can't link to, heh), and induced me to write a somewhat violent, virtually-non-con, PwP, unsafe mansex, almost-rapefic featuring two members of Metallica.

[livejournal.com profile] saluqi appeared to like it, which was the aim, really. So if you really want to see if James/Jason slash is possible, feel free to check out Turn the Page. Comments welcome. Even the OMGWTFWT! kind.

But since it took about an hour to write, with somewhat less than that research time, please pardon any egregrious factual errors!
