In the Out of Doors

Some might wonder in the magical land of Second Life why I choose to “be normal”. I suppose it’s a valid question. Perhaps it’s because this is, as Prok so rightly called it (although regarding someone else) – a room of one’s own.

In life my typist isn’t afforded the luxury of just simply having everything just so, as she’d like and thus in this space, she gives me whatever she fancies, even if just for a while. Thus, unicorns. Tomorrow – who knows? Continue reading

You’ve Lost Your Damn Mind

The age old conversation about absurd requirements for bloggers never seems to end. I was having a conversation with my girl Sasy and we were once again clucking about the weird measures and expectations people seem to be obsessed with.

The other side of the conversation also seems to be that everyone and their brother thinks they can blog because it’s easy and free stuff, at least that’s the tagline. Of course if you ever blogged for any amount of time, you’d know that isn’t the case. It’s work, it’s a commitment and it actually take some effort. Continue reading

Pregaming Summer

I heard a ridiculous ad on the radio where they were proclaiming that they were going to PREGAME MY SUMMER.

That’s called SPRING folks, it already HAS a name.

Regardless of that, my pool is full and I’m ready for it all. Continue reading

Moral Hazard

Moral Hazard: Taking risks when one is protected from the consequences.

You simply must have the Gingerfish “Birdy” pose set to tell this Administration exactly what you think of them.

Moral hazard is increasingly commonplace. Moral hazard happens when people make decisions that involve risk while they are protected from the risk. Gambling with other people’s money is a moral hazard. So is gambling with other people’s lives. Susan Sarandon’s glib disregard for the lives of immigrants, the poor, people who might lose health insurance and people of color when she encouraged risking a Trump presidency to “heighten the contradictions” is an example of moral hazard. She’s a white woman who won’t be deported or be killed by the police because she forgot to use her turn signal. She’s wealthy and does not risk homelessness or loss of health insurance. It was easy for her to contemplate disaster because other people lose, not her.

Moral Hazard: Taking risks when one is protected from the consequences.

Fashion and politics go together…and always have.

The recent bill repealing the ACA that Congressional Republicans passed without one vote to spare is an example of moral hazard. They exempted their health insurance coverage from the provisions that strip protections from the American people. There is no clearer example of moral hazard than that. Their bill brings back lifetime limits and pre-existing condition exclusions by allowing states to opt out of national standards. Of course, states with poor quality state government will immediately rush to opt out. People living in states with good government are not safe, though, because their repeal encourages a race to the bottom by allowing insurance to be sold across state lines so states who are in the pockets of the insurance companies like Georgia and Alabama can allow worthless insurance to be sold to employers in states who attempt to protect their people from predatory corrupt insurance companies like Golden Rule.

Moral Hazard: Taking risks when one is protected from the consequences.

The Exile Drive ponytail is full of life, unlike the American people if Trump destroys our health care system.

I am hoping some of you might be inspired to tell the Trump Admin what you think using your avatars and post your pictures to Avatars Against TrumpContinue reading

Pretty Belleza

When Belleza releases a new skin it’s always been a reason for me to take note. I’ve been a fan a long time of the elegant and understated looks offered by this brand. Elegant without being overpowering, Erin is another one in the WIN column from Belleza in my opinion. Continue reading

Bringing Color and Wonder

I looked across the lake and found that Cajsa has tinted a new house from Barnesworth Anubis that you can pick up at Collabor88 to a striking RED color. I’m so in love with it that I’m envious I didn’t think of it myself.

It was rather lovely to wake up to, I have to admit. Continue reading

Mornings Are Slow

I am behind on so much blogging work, but right now I’m lazy so I thought I would just sit around my house and do nothing.

Well, that’s something, anyway, right?
