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…

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…

Skin Deep

My excitement over the upcoming Skin Fair is almost at fever pitch as the launch of one of the most highly anticipated annual events on the grid is just days away! It was actually incredibly hectic weekend for me as we were preparing to launch the brand new Blogger & Vlogger group and website but…

I Wanna Live in a House, a very Big House in the Country

So I bought myself a larger house than I usually go for. I love decorating so I’m half excited at the thrill of digging through my inventory and unearthing some buried treasures now I have space for them and half nervous of the time it’s going to take me to get going. The great thing…

Friends That Inspire Me

The ways that we are inspired by others can be in such small, but nevertheless meaningful ways or in life-changing ways. The hair I’m wearing today I saw on several blogs and was inspired to go and buy it. A small thing in the big picture of life but those bloggers and the designer made…

Black and Gold

I have always loved taking photos in Second Life long before I was a blogger. Photography always came first and taking photos out in the ‘wilds’ of SL which is why you very rarely see a ‘studio’ shot from me in my blogs. I enjoy finding sims and places to pose and take photographs, then…

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…

And One for the Pot

I love going out for afternoon tea or setting up an afternoon tea at home. I don’t do it so much now that my children are older but on Sundays we would have an early roast dinner and then a tea in the late afternoon quite regularly. Other than that I am not much of…

Out of This Wood Do Not Desire To Go

I’ve been trying to start this blog post for almost an hour but every time I look at this picture I hear Don Mclean’s song lyrics from Vincent in my head “Starry, starry night Paint your palette blue and gray’ and I get somewhat distracted from what I originally wanted to talk about. So I’ve…

If You Were Born Without Wings, Do Nothing to Prevent Them Growing

The title of this post is a quote from Coco Chanel. It’s not always easy to avoid the things in life that clip your wings a little but how you deal with those situations and/or people will determine how quickly your wings recover and you feel ready to take flight again. Those scars and dents…

The World is Not Enough

I woke up with earworms! You know…when you wake up with a song in your head. Well, this morning it’s two songs. In fact I was so convinced that I had literally heard one of them, perhaps on the radio as I snoozed the alarm for 5 minutes and it was subconsciously engrained, that I…

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…
