About the new MI story "Where's Your Sense of Adventure"

I used to do this a lot during the first book; posting a quick blog entry about the new stories as they went up. I kinda miss doing that - so I figured I'd start again with the latest one.

So this one happens about two weeks after the events in part 14 of Romance.net. I was asked if I'd be willing to spend some time at the San Francisco office, training some of the new web developers out there (which was hilarious, me being 21 and both of them being in their mid-30's... Turns out, middle aged dudes don't like taking instruction from people who have been legally allowed to drink alcohol for less than a year). I was in a really strange place in my life - I realized that I was completely in love with one of my best friends, while she was hiding the same fact about me - but was unwilling (or unable) to break up with her current boyfriend.

There were some other dramas occuring at that time as well, so, I decided I needed some time to think - and what better way to get that than to just get the fuck out of Dodge? Incidentally, when I came home from the gig is when the whole Garbage-autographed computer story that you read about in my first book happened.

Anyway, this story pretty much laid dormant in my head for a long, long time. I was reminded of it when I went to the tattoo parlor to start on the latest piece (which will finish tomorrow - I AM SO EXCITED). I mean, I never "forgot" about it, it just didn't really piece itself together in my mind as a story until that time.

So yeah, there you go. That's the reason I waited so damn long to finally get this piece going.
