Be a Champ, not a Chump

I’ve sat staring at this for a while not being able to decide what to write about today. Not because I don’t have something to write about…I do. But because I’m debating whether I should write about it. I’ve decided on the whole not to and I’ll tell you why.  This weekend held a lot…

Waiting

“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time…

Life’s a Gas

It’s been almost a week since I have blogged but it doesn’t feel like that at all. The weeks just fly by but then they have been packed with good things.  As well as working on our sim there’s been lots of activity on Blogger & Vlogger Network with lots of new members joining us…

Bride n Fall

Many of us have done it at one point or another….gone and got SLarried! I’ve posted about my hilarious drive-thru Elvis elopement a few years ago before. It’s still something that makes me laugh out loud. I’ve also had a hand-fasting ceremony in SL back in the very early days of SL Kess. Truth is,…

Take the Long Road and the High Road

I’m an avid people watcher in real life and in Second Life. Not in a stalkery kind of way before you think that, but in a way of wanting to know more about people and personalities and how they interact with people. Facebook is one of my favourite places to observe. I comment little but I…

Autumn Glow

When is a skirt more than a skirt? When it inspires a whole outfit. Anyone that’s followed the blog, or knows me well, knows that Autumn (as we call it on this side of the pond) is my favourite time of the year. Aside from the crisp air and the significance of the shedding of…

My Place in the World

I’ve had several conversations over my years in Second Life about, not only how we associate ourselves so closely with our avatars, but also, how we love our own spaces in Second Life too.  I’ve been working on my home for a good six months and it’s still not ready. Yet, I can knock up…

Window Dressing

There are many character traits that us Brits are known for…’the Blitz spirit’ as it’s called is our ability to carry on as normal in the face of adversity and fear. The British ‘stiff upper lip’ which is our way of putting a brave face on things when we’re down or upset and our love…

Bloom Where we are Planted

I promise I really didn’t plan on having my butt on display two days running but it seems by butt cheeks operate on the same system as London Buses! You don’t see one for ages then 2 of them come along at the same time!! It’s the start of the easter holidays and Spring is…

Behind the Curtain

We’re all different, multi-faceted people right? I mean, we have our core personality traits and then aspects to our personality that can be drawn out by different people and different situations. Sometimes we hide somewhat ‘quirkier’ part of ourselves to whole groups of people for either personal or professional reasons but it’s always exciting to…

Ticket to Ride

My friend Tracy has a range of phrases that she uses quite often. They’ve almost become synonymous with her. One of them is ‘Hey! Don’t judge me!’ To be honest, she usually uses that when she’s done or said something she knows damn well is judgeworthy but that’s beside the point.  I’d like to think…

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…
