It’s Bandana Day – Take Off Your Hair

It’s Bandana Day 2014, the day we take off our hair in support of those for whom having hair isn’t an option due to illness.

You’ll hear people say us doing this doesn’t make a difference. I get their point. We’re not curing anything, we’re not solving anything.

What are doing it for then? Why do we do it then?

It’s a gesture of solidarity. It’s a gesture of support, of respect.  We’re saying “We’re with you.” This is how we show our solidarity and our empathy.

An example of why/how gestures matter.

I have a good friend at work and she’s going through some tough times. She’s Cuban and we’ve shared some cafe con leches over the years while we visited. I went in early the other day and stopped by the bakery, I took her a guava pastry and a cafe con leche. When I brought it to her I said “It looked yesterday like you could use a treat today.”

She hugged me and cried.

Did I fix her problems? Nope. Did I make it all better? Nope.

But I made a small gesture, to say I cared, and I was thinking of her. And it matter TO HER.

You can still get your Bandana at Hair Fair and 100% of the proceeds benefits Wigs for Kids. They are all dontated by SL residents, creators and bloggers and just regular folk like us.  I hope we light up the feeds today – with a lack of hair.

 

Early AM At Flo’s Trailer Park Jamboree

Everyone else is still snoring in their campers but I’m up early because there is so much going on! Hair Fair still goes until tomorrow and I’ve forgotten to go pick up the dollarbie Kavar from EXILE put out. It’s sort of a silly rainbow hair and I have to have it.

There is still time to pick up this gorgeous ‘do from Wasabi Pills also, in fact Hair Fair several years ago was where I first became acquainted with Wasabi Pills. I fell in love then and have been delighted as time has pass at what an amazing and versatile creator she’s become.  Who will you fall in love with at the Hair Fair this year? Continue reading

It’s Friday Eve

It’s Friday Eve and that means it’s time for me to start thinking about heading over to my trailer park weekend home. I’m just raiding the cabinets for some snacks to take along.

Plus I need to go shopping. I always need to go shopping though.

Happy Friday Eve girls!

Go Brown. But not THE BROWNS.

I never choose brown, yet I always like it when I wear it. Warm and cozy, comfortable, browns are delicious and earthy and now that I’m swaddled in them I’m happy. For now.

There is a football team called the Browns. I’ve always thought this was a terrible name. I can’t get behind a color. How can I feel the ferocious violence of a sports team, and scream at them to destroy the opponent when they are just called the Browns? I just can’t. This is why I WILL NEVER ROOT FOR YOU BROWNS! Well, also because I’m a Colts fan. But that’s another story. Continue reading

Morning Coffee with Vic

My oldest friend in SL and I had coffee this morning and caught up. He’s one of my favorite people on the grid. He complained about how much stuff I have in my house and how it’s making him lag and I taunted him for how he was dressed and it was like old times.

After he finally left to go to bed – he’s still one of those up all night people while I have left those days firmly behind me, I decided to go check out Relay for Life.  Continue reading

Working On My Tan Lines

I got it into my head to work on my tan lines, so I took my new tapeman from SOY that I picked up at the KUSTOM9 event and headed out in a new to me bikini from BAIASTICE. But I have to confess, I like the idea of laying out in the sun more than actually doing it.  So after a short time in said pixel sun, I retreated under my new beach tent from ALOUETTE. I get to enjoy the water and the beautiful day, plus my tunes, and I’m not burning alive. WIN. Continue reading
