Turn That Frown Upside Down

I’m having a bit of a sad day today…not because of anything personal but because of the constant reminders all around in the mainstream media and social media of just how horrid people can be these days. Humanity? That’s a joke right now. I was listening to a phone in at work today about the…

Through Glass

I am a big fan of that song by Stone Sour – Through Glass and I know several people that think of it as a song that resonates with their personal relationships in Second Life. How much is real? So much to question An epidemic of the mannequins Contaminating everything Those of you who have…

99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall

Talking to someone close to me over the last few days has pulled together several strings of thought I’ve had ongoing in my head for a couple of weeks now. We were discussing a rl family member and how seemingly perfect they were at being a good husband, father etc. It got me thinking how…

Beach Days and Getaways

I can be a little OCD but then so can a lot of people. In Second Life that manifests itself in a number of ways but one of the ones I notice most is my ‘fear’ of running out of things: L$ – My friend posted the other day that she was down to her…

Burn Too Brightly

As soon as I saw this dress from Reverie Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights lept straight to my head. Described as a romantic dress one of the themes of the book, passion, was top of mind when I thought about how to photograph it. Wuthering Heights is also not just about passionate love but passionate revenge…

Ahoy!

What am I looking for? Well a tooth pain free day on the horizon would be nice! I had a tooth extraction yesterday which didn’t quite go to plan and then was back there again today because….(look away now if you’re squeamish)….I had exposed bone in my gum sticking out and cutting in the inside…

You Can’t Save Me

I was talking to my friend Sady yesterday and I mentioned how much I am enjoying this year in Second Life. We grow as people by making changes to our lives and with the exception of my ‘constants’ (my very close circle of friends) almost everything has changed in one way or another. Sometimes they…

Rare Sighting in Second Life…A Mainstore Release!

I love sales events…hell I work for one! Like everyone else I’m there day one banging on the door trying to get in and see what’s available, new and shiny. I also love to support stores that do mainstore releases. I used to run a feature on the blog called Mainstore Monday and I’ve had…

Words and Phrases – Keepin’ up with the Crazes

There are lots of ways you realise you’re getting older. Needing more sleep, having less sleep, realising you are saying things like “Are you sure you’re old enough to be a policeman?”, the inability to grow your hair without grey ones appearing….unless it’s on your face and a complete inability to understand the attraction of…

Getting the Puppies Out

I heard it on the radio today….during the weather forecast. The word….autumnal! My stomach did a little skip and a cartwheel for I love, with a passion, the Autumn season. The freshness of the air, the colours, the nights drawing in, and autumn food of hot homemade soups and stews. I can’t wait…but seems I’m…

It All Looks Good on the Hanger

I worked with a woman in real life about 20 years ago who always looked stunning. She was a natural clothes horse…everything she put on looked amazing. I swear she could have put on a cloth sack on and it would look like she just pottered off the catwalk in Paris. That is one of…
