Junbug Annhilator

Junbug can be fun to pick up on FLF because they often have lovely gowns and 50L is a steal for their pretties. I popped over there very early AM while this dress was still out and snatched it up.

Now I just need somewhere to take it dancing. I’ve got a slight quibble as the drop sleeve on the shoulder intersects with the arm depending on my arm position, but I suppose for 50L it’s only a very slight quibble.  Continue reading

So Much Sunday

They say you shouldn’t drink alone and I suppose that’s true, I can tend to get maudlin or too happy or sometimes both things depending on the time of day.  My Sunday had a lot of shopping and some visiting planned but I only got to the shopping, so I decided to stay in and have some dinner and tv alone.

It felt like a great plan at the time.

Halfway into the bottle of red though I just began to feel like I’d wasted a day and maybe I should’ve gotten more done. Who knows our SL time runs so fast, it’s difficult to get to everything, or heck to anything some days, with all the body switch and head switching I do.

Sigh, I think I wasted my day. Isn’t it a terrible feeling? There was only one solution for it. Watch movies and cry.  Continue reading

I Am Going to the Max

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK

“A proper community, we should remember also,
is a commonwealth: a place, a resource, an economy.
It answers the needs, practical as well as social and spiritual,
of its members — among them the need to need one another” — Wendell Berry

Rustica was one of the first furniture stores I ever visited in Second Life. My friend Maht Wuyts from The Velvet and I would go there at least a couple times a month. We had a photo studio and it was furnished with Rustica’s Couch of Many Colors and there was that sleek recliner that offered Grey Goose martinis. There was the sleeper sofa that opened up with a mouse click into a bed. Long billowy curtains that pooled on the floor. Man, we loved that place. It felt like a real shop, a bit over-crowded and messy. You know, like an old-fashioned place that is the opposite of a mall. Unlike many stores, when you visited Rustica, the owner might be sitting behind the counter and would even chat. So Max Graf has been an SL acquaintance and friend for ten years now. During all that time, he has been a friendly and generous member of Second Life’s community.

Sadly, he and his family have lost their home due to legal manipulations they may be able to overturn, but not in time to keep a roof over their heads. They risk homelessness without some help. Second Life is a proper community and proves it again and again, a place where people can admit to needing each other. Max asked people to shop at his store, but people, remembering all Max has done over the years to build SL community wanted to do more. That’s where Going to the Max came from, the knowledge that Second Life is a proper community.

Age of Swords @ The Arcade

Age of Swords I love it when different elements from The Arcade come together like the armor from Fedora and the dragon elements from C L A Vv at June’s Arcade which ends at Friday night. I actually loved the wings from the C L A Vv dragon, but ended up using these from Conflict Angel because I wanted animated wings for my video blog below . I reviewed the second book in an amazing fantasy series, Legends of the First Empire.

The Age of Myth

The Age of MythWhile I don’t role play it is fun to dress up. I had a good excuse because I wanted to review Age of Myth, this book I read that I really loved. There were some outfits at The Arcade that were perfect so the timing was perfect.

Age of Myth is a fantasy novel, the first of five in a new series by Michael J. Sullivan. I reviewed this book on my blog HERE.

Fly Me To LEA

I woke up this morning and decided I desperately needed to see new things in my SL so I ran off to LEA to expand my mind and appreciation of beauty.  The place I ended up was LEA 16 and you ride a little space ship (or a fancy space ship as you like) through multiple builds which are a play of light, objects and motion. It was truly a perfect was kick start my day.

I am showing off lots of new goodies this morning also so let’s walk through those. My clothes are from that awesome new shop POPPY and I know I’ve mentioned it before. They are OPEN now as of today.  You can get to POPPY riding this wild slurl.  They are lovely pieces that are out thus far and you’re going to want to check it out. Continue reading

Slow Starter

I’m struggling to get moving today. I wandered over to Cajsa’s to look for coffee and to hopefully find some breakfast because I need to go shopping for pixel food. But now I’m lounging about on her comfy sofa and thinking about a nap instead.

I’ll get up and do something productive soon, I promise.

Maybe.
