Fiesta Forever

So, I’m going to follow on today with my story about ‘Commando Karen’ because people have been asking. This is work event mishap number two… I joined a new company a few years back. Starting work on the Monday I was told it was the company conference that weekend on Friday and Saturday and I…

Play With Me

Playtime is over. It’s Monday and for those of us that work a traditional work week it’s the first day of a new working week. However, this is a short week as I am supposed to be going to a wedding across country on Friday. I say supposed to because getting there might be an…

All things to all people

So, I admit it…I had a teeny, tiny meltdown last night. A perfect storm of feeling a little under the weather for a couple of days, rl stress, sl stress, a splash of disappointment in a couple of situations combined with tiredness and frustration with myself I took a nosedive into feeling sorry for myself…

Summer Games and Volleyball Playing Flamingo

I know they say things change fast in Second Life…but boy oh boy is that true. My thoughts on a particular situation have changed and developed every day. I’ve gone to bed every night convinced I now have all the information I need to make decisions, move forward, embrace changes and then the next day…

Blue Water

Seriously loving seeing all the summertime posts that are about on my feed at the moment. Much more, in truth, than I enjoy the summery weather in real life. I work in a non air-conditioned office, where the windows only open a small amount, and I rely on a fan to waft around warm air…

Surf Hideaway

You know how some words crop up and then stick in your mind. I played a song during a dj set that I hadn’t heard for a while last week. It was a song from a film soundtrack – Blue Crush – and ever since then the word crush, and it’s different uses and how…

Sssh It’s a Secret

I’m umming and arring about what to write about today…mainly because I prefer to think on things for a bit before writing about them. I’m the kind of person that likes to take a problem or issue, hold it up and peer at it from all angles, put it down again, think about it some…

Nature Party

I can’t quite believe it’s Friday already. The week has simply flown by with me flailing about from day to day looking more like a bug-eyed crazy woman.  I’ve talked before about how I find it hard to say no (get your mind out of the gutter I don’t mean like that). There are people…

Move Over Rosie…I’m the Queen of Corona!

A couple of weeks ago I got a facebook message from my bestie Tackett “OMG! ME AND JULIO DOWN BY THE SCHOOLYARD MENTIONS THE QUEEN OF CORONA” Both of us bust up laughing. “Paul Simon wrote a song about meeeeeeeeeeee” I replied. I met Tackett in SL in 2012 and we clicked instantly and over…

My Name is…My Name is…My Name is…Kess Crystal

Over the last week or so I’ve been researching the names of some male bloggers for a project I’m working on at MadPea. Many of them I knew already, or followed on facebook, or followed their blog. But I wanted to send them a notecard in world and therefore needed their SL name in order…

To Blog or Not to Blog…That is the Question

During the SL13B SL Blogger Support Meet the Community session an interesting topic of conversation came up about whether the ‘traditional’ SL blog has had it’s day and whether Flickr is now the only way to blog. I’m going to address this a little today from my point of view as a blogger. I will…

I See Stupid Everywhere

I didn’t want a referendum. I believe we elect officials and politicians, with far more access to facts than we have, to make the decision for us. But, a referendum we had.  The day when, no matter how informed or ill informed you are you get to decide on an issue that will effect every…
