The Age of Entitlement

As always, my blog is where I get to shoot from the hip if I choose to. This is going to be one of those straight-talking posts. Not a rant…hopefully, but my opinion on what I’m seeing more and more in Second Life. Over entitled, spoiled, whiny-ass, allegedly grown adults sucking the fun out of…

The Road Less Traveled

The main reason I started blogging a couple of years ago was as an outlet for a lot of difficult to deal with emotions that I couldn’t express to anyone in Second Life. I recognised that I needed to process them somehow and my blog became an outlet. I’m fast approaching the 2 year mark…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

Choose your Battles

My battles over the last few days have been against myself. Feeling grumpy and moody (honestly I know I’m a woman n stuff but that’s really not like me) and struggling with a need to sleep versus a desire to keep myself busy til crazy hours of the morning. Nothing bad had happened to put…

To Sin or Not to Sin

I had a very odd day yesterday. Odd in the sense that I felt completely unsettled in both SL and RL and I think there were a number of factors that contributed to that. There are changes afoot in my RL workplace and while they are quite exciting changes for me personally AND I’m generally…

Chase the Fallen Leaves

I haven’t met anyone, in real life, or in SL that doesn’t love Autumn. As some of you know I DJ on Fridays at Blithe and Harlow, the owner of the sim has been hard at work giving the sim a more autumnal feel. Who doesn’t like to feel warm and cozy? Autumn, the year’s…

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…

Cool Britannia at 6 Republic

I am loving this round of 6 Republic for so many reasons. The theme for the event is New York v London and being a Londoner I am of course enjoying seeing the best stores and creators in Second Life come up with items and sets that pay homage to my home city.  Putting this…

This…This Too Shall Pass?

Earlier this week I was sent the package from BackBone that they were putting together for TMD and the inspirational frame ‘This Too Shall Pass’ jumped out at me. It’s a phrase I’ve heard before and it really got me thinking. There is the obvious meaning of ‘hold on, you’ll get through this and come…

Shine On Harvey Moon…shine

During the 70’s my parents followed the fashion of homebrewing. The airing cupboard was full of fermenting buckets and bottles and stuff that smelled frankly terrible. I remember thinking “they are really gonna drink this stuff at some point?????” The beer making didn’t last long but the wine making went on for longer. We used…

Waiting for the Show to Begin

The weekend is here and whether you work a regular work week or not it seems everyone looks forward to Friday! Well, this week I’m actually looking forward to Sunday instead. It may seem a little odd to be looking forward to the end of the weekend but Sunday is special this week. A friend…
