Day 17

Music: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Last DJ
Words: 4,533

Twas a good day, on a weekend when nothing was scheduled. Fortunate to get a big block of time in the house alone, and poured out the words.

Another character to introduce, the Sarge. Kind of a elite security person, except I got this funny idea that there might be more than one of him. Not clones, just a number of similarly featured individuals with some vague idea of them taking something to make their skin look like some kind of android-whitewash. Yeah, still working on that one.

Well, there is something to seeing people in certian professions and being bale to identify them by clothing and mannerisms. There are also general body types that fit, etc. Among special forces there is the concept of eating local food so you don't "smell" out of place (deer hunters also do silly things like wearing dirty clothes, or not bathing, etc). That might work into the android whitewash look as a way of deadening their outward sense presence.

Thanks for that bit of information, Steve. It gives me hope that I'm not just being silly. Although, it will probably be a very silly book.

Thanks Camille!

And what's this LJ stuff? Now we have to look at three websites to figure out what you're up to?!?!
