After work today we hit the golf course to play 9 holes. I needed it. Needed the sun and the exercise. It finally seems as if summer is setting in. Just before the weekend it was actually cold for a few days. Now the fans are on and I'm turning on the air conditioning at work. The course was nice and quiet and since it's been a couple of weeks since I'd played, and me being a beginner we were able to go at a decent pace where I could hit twice if I wanted to, try my putt again if I wasn't happy with the first. I've been working on consistently making it over the ravine on this hole and today I did. It's a tough course though, especially for someone with arthritis as bad as mine. Lot's of hills and I tend to end up following my ball down the fairway which is all uphill it seems. I'd kill for a putting green in my own back yard.
I took the new laptop for a test drive last night. Poser 11 has a much better comic style than previous versions so after testing how long a decent sized render would take on my new Asus ROG I decided to play around with a comic book look. In the mood for scifi I slapped a few generic models into a scene and loaded my favorite scifi character and began playing with the settings. I was quite happy with the way I got the green lighting to bounce off her and the floor. I actually do have a story in my head that uses this character. I've yet to really outline it as I've never done that before. Writing isn't something that comes easy to me but I'm working on it. Currently I'm working on a piece of fan fiction. I'm a huge Stargate Atlantis fan and I read a lot of fan fics so I though, what the hell, I'll test my writing skills on something where I can work with established characters and settings. It's about halfway finished. Maybe I'll have the guts to post it here when it's finished.
