Experimental anthropology. I occasionally pull stunts on my co-workers, just to so how they react to things. Being all narrow-world-view folk, all very normal and banal in their own ways, I find it amusing and interesting to expose them to things outside of their world view. I'll occasionally arrive at work in a very short skirt, or a corset, or other such things just to see how their fragile little paradigms cope.

Today I am wearing a coin-belt. I jingle with every movement. What's more, if I wear a lab-coat, you can't see from whence the jingle comes. I'm finding the varying reactions amusing.

Burlesque. I think I'd like to join a burlesque dancing troupe. This would mean, of course, making sure that bishi_wannabe is okay with it and, perhaps more importantly, learning the fine art of burlesque. Which is really most of the point. I think I should like to prance around, pin-up-girl-pretty (because, let's face it, women in Playboy today have NOTHING on the pin-up girls of the past), and win smiles, appreciation and chuckles from an audience.

If anybody knows of any classes one can take or troupes looking to recruit, let me know.

Binding. A while ago, Lon put the idea in my head that I should have my old con modules compiled in a leather-bound volume. He even suggested that I could sell some of these collected works to a willing public (if there is such a thing). The idea, the more I think about it (and particularly given the response to my post yesterday) appeals to me. If I go ahead with it, I may have to re-type some of my old modules, but that I suppose wouldn't be too much of a drama....

Sounds like another excuse for an lj-poll!

*grin* Having something to pat is a good thing, especially with spiffy covering... I guess I was thinking more of getting known than the artistic side of it :)

It was the possibility of making profit that made me think of problems with IP. If there are problems with charging money for material that touches on other people's work, then *mumble mumble* Cons *mumble*
