If role-playing were just dressing up in beautiful gowns like this one from Peqe, I think everyone would love it. Of course, in one sense we are all role-playing in Second Life, just some are role-playing roles more divergent from their first than others. While the /me narrative of role-playing is not for me, I think the role-playing community has been one of the most positive forces in SL bringing us hundreds of sims rich with historical or fantastical detail. Second Life would be a much less beautiful place without role-play.
Well I got a new little dog. I might be into collecting little dogs now. With the Arcade feeding my cute things addiction this weekend it’s hard to say WHERE the madness will stop. But I’ve set up a little campsite with my new Tres Blah trailer and outdoor goodies, and the doggie and me are on vacay! Continue reading
Gogo and my IMs read like those text message commercials with James Earl Jones and Malcolm McDowell.
“Have you been to Fameshed?”
“No. Not yet. I dunno if I am gonna go.”
“Me too, but I wanna go out. We should go.”
“I dunno. I’m tired. But I might go. Or I might go somewhere else.”
“I wanna go somewhere. Maybe.”
And on and on like that. Sometimes we’ll have entire conversations on how tired we are of the trend of everything being brown. (Look around, it’s a thing. Suddenly everything is dark and brown at some events.)
Anyway, in the course of this conversation, the event CHINESE NEW YEAR came up. We both agreed that the Chinese boxes of awesome made by LARK were must have, and so even though she was dithering about going out I headed over there. The original landmark seemed to have landed me in a pit. From the sky, where I ended up, it seemed like there was a tunnel leading to the event, or a walkway or something, but where I LANDED it was some sort of poofing rendering hell where not only could I not see, I was disoriented and unhappy. Plus, there was no shopping there. Continue reading
Weekend mornings are my favorite. I can get ready slowly, at my own pace, considering what I’m going to wear, and do. Sundays are nice because I know my usual plan is to go listen to smooth jazz at the Velvet while Cajsa DJs. Continue reading
At Christmastime I set up a little breakfast nook with some Arcade goodies I had gotten, along with a Christmas tree I picked up from a shop, that I thought was adorable. I loved having bite to eat while gazing at the twinkling lights, relaxing and just enjoying how beautiful my little space was.
The 12 days of Christmas ended and I cleaned up my decorations.
But the twinkling lights? Well, they stayed.
I can’t grab them. No matter where I grab, I get my house. I try to highlight transparent, and again, still just get my house even though I am targeting the damned lights. ITS INFURIATING.
There is nothing for it but to ignore it I suppose. Continue reading
Girl Thursday is a newer to me store with an intriguing name. I’m wearing a holiday release of a festive cable knit tank top – perfect, cuz I live on the beach.
I am interested in the name, because I want to know what it means. Is it Girl Thursday because it’s not quite as good as Girl Friday? (You youngsters can Google that shit.) Or is it as in, Thursday’s Child is Full of Woe? Continue reading
This is a true story. I wanted an item at 22769. It was a hunt item. I couldn’t find it. It was one of my morning log in times, and usually I’ve got about 30 minutes to log in, dress, shoot, edit and post. I do this most days. I spent 20 minutes looking, got bitter, happened to find a different item, and left. I remembered that I hate hunts. I did however find this amazing dress, which I wasn’t looking for, for the Invitation Only Hunt? I don’t even know what that is. But this dress is a total score. Continue reading
I actually did have a hanging bed when I was growing up. My bedroom was U-shaped, a loft room curving around a staircase and overlooking the living room. That U-shape made getting furniture to the far side of the U very difficult. It was also very narrow and would have been difficult to sweep and clean under a regular bed. My dad has the bright idea of hanging it from the ceiling so there were no legs or any other obstructions to clean around. It was the best bed ever. He used regular swing set sized chain link rather than iron rods as is used in this bed.
Interestingly it didn’t really swing wildly as you might expect, but would basically rock an inch or two when I would shift in my sleep. It took real effort to make it swing more than 3 or 4 inches. However, I never had insomnia or sleepless nights. It was definitely the best bed ever. So of course, when floorplan. made a hanging bed, I absolutely had to have it. It makes me nostalgic.
My Christmas tree from LAQ Decor was a great find, Sasy recommended it when I was casting about for something new. I haven’t been feeling well so comfy clothes from Somnia were perfect for my rainy night in.
Feeling crummy and wanting to do all the things is frustrating. Add to that gloomy weather, and a general malaise and decorating my tree was the most cheery thing I could think of to do. Continue reading
I had a busy morning and afternoon, but nothing some fuel couldn’t help me power through. I had to pay the rent and then run off to do some shopping. Pixel Food should just magically appear don’t you think?
Luckily I know a great meat market.
I picked up new heels from LaRoo at Shoetopia and they’re adorable. They’ve got an easy skin matching system, puts me in mine of how GOS does it with a database. The match for me was fast and easy. The shoes were comfortable and cute for my daily shopping trip and perfect for entertaining. They dress up or down perfectly with their Mary Jane inspired styling. Continue reading
