Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
Actually, that title isn't entirely true - unless your weekend starts on Thursday night, but as I spent most of Friday chasing a my P11D around the house I suppose it kind of did.

Anyway, Thursday. I'm very aware that cycling to meetings leaves me sweaty and feeling a bit icky, so on Thursday I decided to cycle slowly into town. This didn't actually seem to make much difference, so at the rather-dull-meeting hosted by the RDA I sat away from everyone else steaming, this time at least, physically rather than metaphorically. The meeting was very, very dull. I'm sure these things are worthy in some people's eyes, but other than a way to waste a lot of taxpayers money as easily as possible I don't know what these organisations actually do. Oh well...

Thursday evening I headed around to take some artistic nude photographs. This is partly to keep up with davefish as he's been proving he can do Live, I have to do Naked. It was actually a lot of fun/nervous enjoyment. Clearly I can take the camera into (someone else's) bedroom and use it as a social crutch there too.

I took three sets of photos, one of arrangements of bodies, one of bodies with ribbon, and one more intimate/voyeuristic set. Most are, unsurprisingly NWS* but I've put a couple below. Last time I posted a picture of jfs' nipple it started a debate about whether male nipples were more or less worksafe than the female variety, so if anyone is offended please let me know.

Saturday was party time chez quondam. I was almost totally unsociable, and rather than wider conversation spent most of the evening talking to ant_girl who was visiting and drinking 50-50 Archers-Lemonade, resulting in me being on the floor with a headache by midnight. Ibuprofen and bed then...

Sunday I bounced up... then straight back to bed. Even the thought of Dragonfire on UKGold would not get me from my bed, but I did emerge eventually to start an active day. ant_girl is clearly a good influence - or perhaps it's that combined with realisation that the amount of rubbish I ate at the party needs to have some exercise based compensation.

Anyway, first was climbing at the Creation Climbing Centre. I've not been climbing for about 12 months, but managed to get up some 4s, 5s and 5+s without too much hassle, though I did tire quickly. Of course, I took the social crutch with me. links to a page of pics below.

Then, rushed back, got on the bicycles and did bike-train-bike-train-bike for a couple of hours. Actually, this should be bike-train-bike-cake-train-bike for me, and bike-train-bike-cake-train-bike-bike-train-bike for ant_girl as we stopped for a snack in Stratford, and then as soon as we returned to Brum she got on a train back to the frozen north. In any case, did about 4 miles around Birmingham, then about 17 from Redditch to Stratford. The latter run was lovely, except where I failed to read the map twice which left us cycling on a main trunk road rather than a nice quiet lane, and the ford we discovered and I stupidly took at full speed - drenching myself to the waist and a passer-by. Ooops.

This morning I am mostly eating more left-overs. No badminton tonight so I shall have to find alternative amusement.

* Unless, like me, you once had to test a pr0n filter at work, that was based on counting fleshtones. Of course, this meant it ignored all black and white photos but forbade access to the corporate homepage which was "orange and white" rather than "black and white". Back to the drawing board...

Check your links on the nude sets - they all point to the "bodies" set.

I like the ribbon photos, especially the first. Strong, simple lines.

Fixed. The links on the thumbnails were correct, but the text links were not.

Thanks for noticing!

Oh and the climbing link has a rouge " at the end.

Actually it didn't have one at the start - but the effect was the same I guess.

I'm such a HTML-slacker. The shame of it...

Yeah - I wasn't sure what to do about that. I did tag the photos in Flickr as "may offend" and wondered whether that might limit the RSS feed. But of course it didn't.

Not really sure what to do beyond that :-/

Pink is good though

Hmm, I might experiment. I've picked up ~lots~ of hits on them from all over the place due to their being public, and more random contacts and favourites - which I see as a strength of Flickr and similar, and one of the reasons I keep my LJ (mostly) public - aggressive social networking.

I'll have an experiment later to see how it works if I leave them friends only until the RSS update has passed, and then make them public - it might not go back to them, thus getting around the problem.

Whoo hoo smutartistic nudes! On an entirely unrelated note I seem to recall you still owe me photography for something...

Regarding SFWness, I'd probably put some of this post behind an LJ-cut. If nothing else, this is a very large post, and anyway you'll be using bandwidth every time somebody refreshes ther friends page.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: August 22nd, 2005 09:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Shotgun loaded with lj-cut tags and fired at the entry as requested!

And yes. I still owe you. I'll sort a Manchester visit soon, or, as I've just applied for a job in Warrington I might move to the North West anyhow.

Excellent. Give me advance warning and I'll try[1] and assemble sailor/fireman costumes as appropriate.

Re: Warrington

Well, we shall see what happens - how it goes, whether I get offered it, whether I take it etc.

That's not many though. I wonder why there were so few. Were the other posts more popular?

Form was a right pain though.

Re: Warrington

Yes, I saw it. Horrible, badly-written and mostly unsuitable seemed to be the consensus here. I'd better delete the former post, it might be classed as privileged info and get me into trouble.

Re: Warrington

For a moment then I thought you were talking about mine!

The biggest shock was having to handwrite most of it. I much prefer online apps/PDFs now.

Re: Warrington

From the totaljobs website I got the impression it *was* an online app! Could be an obvious area to innovate for them....

Re: Warrington

PS - obviously I haven't seen yours or anyone else's, silly! :)

Move to Manchester. It's where all the cool kids are.

Yeah - just in time for a new boss' boss at work :-)

She wants some more photos soon, so LJ-land will be thrilled no doubt...
davefish From: davefish Date: August 22nd, 2005 06:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
So I am to blame for your naked people...

Well, at least its a good thing that I am to blame for this time :) They are very good, I am very impressed.

On a personal level, I like 4058 the best out of them. The eye contact is very good, and is questioning, but it doesn't feel like you are strongly intruding. 3983 has a great chain shadow going over it.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: August 22nd, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)

Thanks :-)

I do blame you totally - and will continue to as much as possible :-)
