I'm Ready for my Close-Up

So, I had my first session with the photographer for an upcoming calendar to raise money for a local writing group. This is one of those things featuring local writers showing some skin -- rated G or PG, of course -- wherein we allow ourselves to be put into silly poses, sans clothing, for the benefit of a worthy cause.

Me, I'm the sci fi guy, and not to give too much away, will probably be waving a light saber under the light of a full moon at a bug-eyed monster. 

I dunno if the alien will be dressed or not ...

What I learned from this was that a big warehouse studio, on what was one of the coldest March days ever here locally, takes a while to heat up even with the heater blasting away, and that I should bring a warm robe next time to avoid the Blue Acorn Effect.

The things we do for our art ...

The things "WE" do, for "OUR" art? Since when are you Ron Jeremy?

I knew this would happen...Life in the fast lane has gone to your head.

Nah, not Ron Jeremy, Ben Dover ...

You really wanna put up a post like that, and then leave comments open? Wow, you trust the discretion of your readers.

Because my heart is pure, I have the strength of ten. Aside from which I can run with my regulars, and I have control of the squelch button ...

..I'm just gonna stand way the hell back over here, so when the lightning comes down, I'm well away from it.

I don't know why, Kid. Many times as you've been hit by lightning lately, got to figure you're immune by now.

This is Oregon: not enough lightning, nor a hurricane or so. I guess it'll have to be a volcano eruption.

Sure, blame the cold, Steve. That must be what it was.

"This is Oregon: not enough lightning, nor a hurricane or so."

We do get hurricane-strength winds, though: fairly frequently on the coast, not so often here in the valley.

But I'm betting on a meteor strike.

But of course it was cold. It's an automatic protective mechanism.

Really. No, I mean, really. Truly.
