I am doing some research for my book. Part of that research requires me to look up pictures of men or women who may give me inspiration for a character's "look". I like to drag a picture or two of the beautiful people out there and put them in a file on my desktop with the character's name on it. That way, I'm able to go back from time to time and know where some ideas originated from and to provide me with new and fresh ones, too. Well, since I do most (if not all) my writing at a very public coffee shop, it's very likely someone could walk by and see what is on my computer screen.
Did you know if you looked up "strong male models" you get a whole lot of "naked"? In many of the pictures, the models are discreet enough to hide their goods, but anyone walking by has to be wondering why on earth I decided to look up porn while here. I can see that the man business is covered for the most part, but if some passer-byer glimpses at my computer they have to be thinking "Dirty, dirty slut." Maybe not, but that's what I'd be thinking and I just assume everyone thinks the way I do. Mind you, there is a post in here when I was doing a search for 3" pens and what popped up was a whole bunch of 3" penises. My computer was not in viewing range at that time...but, still. Awkward.
So, I've been looking at a whole bunch of half naked or almost completely naked men while in public and SOLELY for research purpose. And I have found some that have been useful. However, I look like some filthy perv that is mischievously hunched over and hovering over their computer trying to hide the screen from looky-loo eyes checking me out checking out hot half naked men worth checking out. It's actually funny how guilty I feel when I'm looking at this, but I am WORKING! Believe me, I know which sites to visit if I really want to take a peak. What I'm looking at is not even close to any of those sites.
Now, I am writing my blog to appear that I am "working" on something rather than gawking at the bodies on my screen. I HAVE to get back to looking at these pictures and I hope no one looks over my shoulder. Then again, whatever. So what if I'm looking at nakedness. I'm not a naive prude. The point is I don't look at that shit in a coffee shop...that's for the library.
Just kidding!!! I don't go to the library.
