Fun interview 'test'

Ever thought an interview could be fun? Well I've been on two so far that I've really enjoyed. The first gave me a programming problem to solve and wanted to see design solution (not the code.) The second interview gave me a 'logic test'. Something were given a list of rules, one must answer questions.

SkateBoston Group photo - Sunday Morning Skate -2006

SkateBoston is 2008 is fast approaching - August 1-3, so I thought I'd share this group photo after the skaters had on lunch during the Sunday morning skate. (Or it might have been after the Saturday morning skate.)

I joined Facebook. I've been having fun with it however, I really believe we have too many forums and groups we can join but it's hard to say no! Keep getting sucked in!

Hancock and Get Smart

I just saw Hancock and Get Smart at Mendon Drive-in which is just the best drive in ever!

I loved both of them. Laughed so hard at times I had tears running down my face or I couldn't hear what was said.

Hancock surprised me since I didn't think the advertisement for it was all that nice.
That is, just the close up of will smitths face. You really don't get a sense for the comedy from that advertisement.

The Invisible Ring by Anne Bishop

I received a copy of the Invisible Ring that I won in an online drawing.
I started reading it last night and have been finding excuses where I can keep reading it today - clearly I sign that I find it captivating.
The only thing I really don't care for is seems like every page has something sexual on it and it does get tiresome.

I would not have purchased this book, based on what it's about but since I won it, I thought that I'd read it. From the back of the book: "Jared is a Red-Jeweled Warloard bound as a pleasure slave by the Ring of Obedience. After suffering nine years of torment as a slave, he murdered his owner andescaped--only tobe caugth and sold into slavery once again."

I'm torn between wanting to rush out an buy all her books, or not. Is this common for Anne Bishop? Are all her books so ladened with sex? I feel like the use of sex in books is a cheap way to fill up pages with words. She has a fantastic story line here shame she had to riddle Invisible Ring with so much sex!

The story also repeats thoughts quite a lot, which is surprising. I would have thought that an author of so many books would have learned to be more compact with her wording.

Yes, in spite of my comments, I have my nose in this book none stop.
The sex scenes are short and not too graphic so I can read them quickly and get to the meat and more interesting parts of the story!

It's a cool story, be great movie, well . . . if they can pull out some of the sex crap, otherwise it would be a XXX rating!

Lovely inline skate!

I had a wonderful skate around the streets of Boston - ok, mostly Cambridge - with the Inline Club of Boston.
The routes are determined by a volunteer who figures out a fun and safe skate route ahead of time and then leads us around on the weekly skates!

Check out SkateBoston - a weekend skating event in Boston from August 1-3. weekend of skates, lunch, snacks, dinner, a regular party on skates.

Do you outline? If so, how much/how detailed?

Curious, do you outline your entire story first?
For a given 'chapter' how much of the plot for that chapter is part of the outline?
Do you even outline 'conversations'?

Happy 4th of July!
