I had just wrapped up my FLF shopping when Sasy insisted I come out and be festive for a while. Her suggestion for festive was to start at Bewbapalooza or however it’s spelled. It’s a sale event (I dunno if discounted) for the wearers of the mesh boobs. It’s also carnival themed and Whimsy played the strong man game and won me a popsicle. YAY POPSICLE.
Anessa Stine joined us and fondled her boobs as we wandered around looking at the items.
It was somewhere about that time, that Sasy said “It’s your REZ DAY!”
OMG. It was my rez day and I didn’t even know it. SL Old Age kicks in.
We popped over to the Men’s Department sale next and while Whimsy oooo’d over kilts (and the lack of underwear beneath I think) I grabbed the free gift from Handverk – a red scale clutch. There is probably some humor in the fact that the gift at the Men’s Department sale is for women. Or, men who carry a red scale murse.
It was a fruitful shopping day as well as being my rez day – the new Windswept bookshelf from Trompe Loeil was exactly what my house needed in the bedroom.
As I wandered around my house last night after running the gauntlet with the girls, it occurred to me. I really like my SL lately.
Perhaps it just took me six years to finally grow up. I’m not sure. But my life is settled, and quiet, and genuinely happy. I never get as much done as I want, or need to, and I miss the people I don’t talk as much I’d like. But still, the world turns and I’m finally in my own skin.
Some people spend their SL desperately trying to be someone else. It was pointed out to me recently that, I tend to be myself – although a fancier skinnier version. I don’t think there is wrong with being someone else in SL – it just doesn’t work for me.
Perhaps that’s just what I needed to sort out, that I like being me, just me. I’m flawed and I’m silly and I’m lots of other things. But mostly, I’m just Gidge. I’m totally ok with that now.
I’m wearing a new skin from TULI – Claire – which is for the Cupcakes Sim Valentine event featuring several of the creators on that sim making some lovely Valentine themed items. I wanted to mention it – because, I’m wearing the version that is called YES. They come in Yes, No and Maybe – but I chose yes.
It’s the word that launched one of my favorite love stories of all time. When John Lennon met Yoko Ono it was as at her art gallery. He climbed up on a ladder and she had written the word YES on the ceiling. It touched him, with it’s small powerful, positive message. The rest is history. So for a Valentine themed skin, I had to choose YES.
