Late to the Party

I’ve been meaning to do this post for a couple of weeks now but life kept getting in the way of me organising the post. I’m following the instructions on one of Strawberry Singh’s meme posts about social media to share with everyone the details of my social media presence. Second Life Profile Flickr Facebook…

The Child That is Born on the Sabbath Day…

I’m a Sunday child…born on the Christian Sabbath and according to the nursery rhyme I was set to be “bonnie and blithe, good and gay”. I’m not sure I read as much into that as I do some of my horoscope traits. As I was explaining to Raph the other day I am not one…

Ready to Take a Leap of Faith?

Finding that special person, your SLife companion isn’t easy. You just have to look at facebook or talk with a group of friends about past relationships to realise how many frogs there have been before there is any sign of the birth of a Prince.  When you have been stung badly by someone who has…

Take Part in the Fantasy Faire Fae Parade

There’s lots going on at the Fantasy Faire today as the Faire celebrates the 400th year anniversary of the passing of William Shakespeare with a performance of Midsummer Night’s Dream. An SL star studded cast will be taking to the stage at 1.30pm slt for an abbreviated version of one of the bards most famous…

Not My Circus, Not My Monkey

I finally got around to visiting the revamped Ironwood Hills sim today. It’s been one of those things on my mental to do list for quite some time. The team at Ironwood Hills do an amazing job of the atmosphere and ambiance of the sim and I LOVE the carneval area where I took the…

Lead Me Not Into Temptation….I Can Find The Way Myself

“I can resist anything but temptation” Oscar Wilde I have zero willpower when it comes to SL and giving into temptation. Whether it’s shopping or staying up too late I cave in 9 times out of 10. I went to bed before midnight last night for the first time in over a month and it…

Hey There Mr Blue, We’re So Pleased to Be With You

I had the best Sunday! I honestly couldn’t wish for more in my SL right now. I have work that I love doing and the company of the best people and friends.  From lazing on the dock yesterday morning while Raph woke up with his morning coffee to partying at Caitinara Bar at Holly Kai…

What Happens if I Click This? Updating my Blogroll

I spent a good couple of hours on Spotify last night all because of one song. I heard the song at a club and looked up the artist on spotify and after deciding to download the whole album I started to click through on the related artists links. Several downloads and hours later I had…

Drop Dead Red

I was having a conversation with my friend Sady yesterday about blogging. Sady has recently returned to the blogging world with two blogs (that’s right she doesn’t do things by halves). The first blog is called Sady Stories where she shares some of the beautiful and often dark poetry and stories she has written over…

Mind Your Beeswax Mother!

I titled this post as that phrase is something my youngest daughter says to me when she thinks I’m trying to nose too deep into her business. It’s difficult not to after the last few months when she’s been sick and I’ve had to be far more ‘parental’ than usual to actually back off and…

Escape to Downtown Abbey

  One of the things I enjoy most about Second Life is the variety of worlds and environments we can create around us. From urban lofts to tropical beaches we can build homes to suit our moods or seasons. We can find homes in historical sims or modern cities recreated in Second Life. What we…

Black Knight Captures White Queen

  Headfirst by Shayla S A thick foam barrier blocks us all, from a scene of, illusioned perfect something we all strive for. But few achieve. I want it, I need it, I can taste it, feel it. I stick a hand in, a foot. Sucks like quicksand. But I try “It’s so close” “Just…
