And Then WoW Killed My Computer

WoW dropped the prepatch to their next expansion and all hell broke loose in Azeroth. Everyone experienced challenges and problems. I personally experience a problem I didn’t see anyone else have. In the middle of the patch………

BLAM. BSOD. END TIMES PEOPLE END TIMES.  Continue reading

Would you update your viewer in the middle of a photo shoot?

141024 Raw from SL

Normally my answer would be “Hell to the No” but when I was shooting these pictures today, I figured it could not possible get worse and might get better. So when I saw there was a new update, I went for it. I have not been able to save a photo to disk since Monday and was saving raw shots directly from the SL viewer to Flickr. The photos for this post are raw, unedited pictures. They have not even been cropped. I know Flickr has a photo editor, but I don’t like it. Still, it turns out fine. I just like to play with a few little touch ups now and then. I am wearing a fun and adorable sailor sweater and flared skirt from MotiAme that I found at Kustom9 when I dropped by to throw money at Apple Fall, as one does. The sweater comes in gray, brown, blue, black, red and white. The skirt is in black, white and blue. They fit together well and have a lovely early fall feeling – for those days with brisk breezes, a bit of mist in the air and moments of sunshine. October in Oregon.

To Snuggle

Well I got a new nightgown at DON’T PANIC but, it seems to be a used item. It’s kind of, dirty. But I’m really tired, so i’m going to just let it go and wash it tomorrow.  I’m tired, and I’ve got a new little snuggly OOPSIE to cuddle at bed time. I have to admit it’s really cute and goes well with the bunny headband and hair from PLOOM. Continue reading

Crashy McCrasherton

141021

 

So I have been crashing every single time I saved a picture to disk for the last two days, perhaps some new incompatibility arose from upgrading my OS to Yosemite. I will have to figure it out soon, but I didn’t feel like trouble shooting today, so I just save the photos direct to Flickr®. That means these are truly raw photos, not even cropped. I just set the size of the frame inworld and clicked until I got the shot I wanted and so what you see is what you get. As to why it crashes saving to disk but not to Flickr, those are the mysteries of computers and graphics cards and code.

Oh I do get very bad tempered if you interrupt me while I’m doing my hair face.  Very.

Vintage Is Cool or I Saw My First Flasher at the Vintage Store

121020_001

I have always like vintage clothing, particular that from the 40s and 50s when clothing was structured and fitted with sophisticated glamour the aesthetic goal designers had in mind. The Vintage and Cool event currently going on seems made for me. People were coming out of the austerity of the Thirties and the World War and the expanding economy and growing middle class allowed for a real explosion of fashion. This lovely dress from AVALE fits firmly in that tradition.

All About that Bass

1016_004

I do not pay a lot of attention to the Hot 100 as most of the songs recently seem to have Idol-itis – overproduced and full of melisma. However, someone on plurk mentioned having All About that Bass stuck in her head so I was curious and listened to it. I was surprised by its retro doo woo sound and was happy that such a positive body image song was leading the charts. Pop music popularity is dominated by the tweens, so the song’s popularity makes me optimistic about “kids today.”

Morning Are Complicated

Pixel Gidge has luxurious, beautiful mornings every day. I think this is because my own RL mornings are the opposite of hers.  As I stumble through the chaotic, wrinkled messy world that is RL I juxtapose SL Gidge’s morning when I blog – sitting it opposite my own.

The more peaceful and lovely her morning, make that the opposite for me. Continue reading

I Am Not Made To Be A Supermodel

Some of us just don’t do sultry well. I can try all I like to pose and pout but really the girl inside me is doing this…

For no better reason than “I can”.

SLINK released new bikinis and thongs for us island dwellers in SL and I was happy to spend my day in the m yesterday, enjoying the surf and sand. Continue reading

It’s Like Deja Brew All Over Again

Vixen Thibideau has launched a new EVENTS blog (I am spelling her name probably) and it’s called Eloquence SL. I’m always interested in GOOD events coverage, I enjoy SERAPHIM but I think that more GOOD coverage is a positive thing for shoppers and bloggers alike.  Eloquence is currently having  a launch event where many of the designers you know and love have put out free gifts, at the DEJA BREW cafe.

Any excuse to go to DEJA BREW I say. Continue reading
