A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.
You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.

The bright lemon and lime colors in the top and skirt from Tee*fy make me happy. It makes me think of hot summer days and cold summer drinks. I have a real love for gin & tonic and that crushed fresh lime is so wonderful. I love salads made with some fresh squeezed lemon juice or lime juice and generally buy a 3 pound bag of lemons every month. I used to buy about a dozen limes every month, too, but they have gotten too expensive, doubling in price since last year.
My new SLINK Physique body and I have a busy day ahead of us. I decided to feed it some breakfast, to find out if it’s as big of a foodie as my old body was. Indeed it is. I picked up a new toaster from What Next for FLF which is the PERFECT addition to my shades of pink kitchen, and it makes lots of yummies. Continue reading →
It’s true, I’m kind of a secret kimono addict. Kimono robes especially, in my youth, were a very secret addiction. I love the feel and the flowing girliness of them, even the shorties make me feel feminine and pretty. PIxicat releasing them at The Arcade this month has provided me with new loungewear for my new house. AND this way if someone drops by I’m not completely disheveled!
I’m also delighted to have the new furniture from Mudhoney for THE ARCADE. This is a lovely set, perfect for entryways areas or whatever nook or corner you’re likely to slog down your purse and have a seat after a long day being awesome. Continue reading →
If you’re from the US you know it’s Memorial Day weekend. For some of us it’s a long weekend and we often like to get away and relax, it’s the last warm but not omg so hot we’re going to die weekend for many. Continue reading →
Getting to to the end of a goal can be a grind. It’s there in sight, but you have to keep going to make it happen. You can’t let up or you won’t get there, you have to keep making things happen and being on your game even though it’s so close, SO SO SO CLOSE.
That’s been my week. I had these photos done early Monday AM. I had them editted on Tuesday. But since then, I’ve been driving toward a goal and could barely think until it was done.
The exhaustion of having completed it is upon me, the relief, the feeling of overwhelming AAAAAAAAHHHHH and it shows by how befuddled I am this morning.
I just spent five minutes wondering why typing Cajsa’s name into Google didn’t allow me to send her a message. Continue reading →
My entire outfit was planned around this bandeau from Tres Blah which is new for Collabor88. The colors offered are gorgeous and subtle, and this is a perfect wardrobe pick up because it’s a summer staple. It can go under blazers, and with long swishy skirts. You can dress it up or down and it’s a perfect compliment to our never ending beach party than is Second Life. Well, some of us anyway.
There were also shoes, and tights, but that doesn’t matter now. ALL that matters is this top. You see, I started with the top. I built everything around the top. The top was my focus.
I admit I am an SL hoarder. I have items in my inventory from 2007. In fact, I am wearing items from 2007 in this picture. Now, I am not the worst. I do throw things out. Pose stands, landmarks, notecards are ruthlessly trashed. All my shoes with invisiprims have been deleted. Pants with sculpted bottoms and prim flap skirts – gone! Full bright hair – done! Bling – get outta here! But then, I falter.
But how could anyone delete something as gorgeous as this gown? Even if I never wear it again, I might. You never know, right?
Let me start with a confession. I do not hate Shopping Cart Disco’s SL Secrets. From sociology and evolutionary psychology, I understand the role of gossip in defining community norms and values. It is possible that anonymity allows more viciousness than we might see in first life, but given the many stories about young people driven to suicide by online harassment on Facebook® and Twitter® coming from non-anonymous classmates, I think that anonymity is a smaller factor than we might think.
Sometimes the secrets make me think, sometimes they make me laugh, sometimes they surprise me. Secrets often spark discussions on Plurk® and I suppose they do on other social media as well. Sometimes I agree with the secret-makers, sometimes I do not. One thing most secret-makers have in common is an idea of how the world should be and they want us all to know it is out of alignment with their standards.
Today a secret maker repeated the all too common “Get a real life” mantra that always seems so ironic coming from someone whose emotional investment is Second Life® is so powerful they are compelled to create anonymous secrets to share their opinions. This time, the “Get a real life” message included an insinuation that purchasing from SL creators could be contributing to their mental illness by promoting an attachment to this second life over their first life.
I think the secret maker is wrong on all levels – because while our first and second lives are distinct and often separate, they are both real.
