Fairground Attraction

It’s the end of my week off work and it’s been a very busy and exciting week full of new friendships, laughter, fun and…well…it’s me we’re talking about so there was work too. With my FaMESHed head on we were busy finalising plans for the 5th anniversary round of FaMESHed which opens on the 1st…

Proceed with Caution: Starting to Date in SL

I have a friend who has recently found herself in the situation of being single in SL after a very long time of being in a relationship. I know from experience that can be a hard transition, especially if you enjoyed the comfort and security of a monogamous SL and suddenly have to start thinking…

Words and Phrases – Keepin’ up with the Crazes

There are lots of ways you realise you’re getting older. Needing more sleep, having less sleep, realising you are saying things like “Are you sure you’re old enough to be a policeman?”, the inability to grow your hair without grey ones appearing….unless it’s on your face and a complete inability to understand the attraction of…

…..Do It Better

Well the sign behind me in this picture actually say Hippies do it better but I was thinking it could say a lot of different….it reminded me of a song I used to play quite often when I dj’d called Brunettes Do It Better…of course I only played it when I was wearing brunette hair….

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

I’ve been taking stock a lot over the last few weeks, if not months, but it’s been the last few days where my mind has cleared enough to focus on the future and it couldn’t be looking brighter. For most of us Second Life is a place we come to relax or escape and I’ve…

I Feel Fantastical

Late last week a friend popped into my IM to tip me off about a new sim that I should go check out and having a bit more free time at the moment I added it to the list of things to go check out this weekend….and oh boy was I glad I did.  I’ve…

If You Can’t Say Anything Nice…Don’t Say Anything At All

There’s been a series of essays produced for a radio show that I listen to while I’m at work called ‘Being Human‘. People from actors to philosophers are asked ‘What Makes Us Human?’ and their essay is delivered on the radio and then discussed with the host of the show. It’s fascinating to hear all…

I Get What I Want…

I Get What I Want! I wish this was some declaration of how life always turns out the way I had planned. No such luck unfortunately.  There are lots of things I want…some material, some emotional and some more altruistic and I fall woefully short most of the time in all three categories. Does that…

By Day and By Night

Just a wee bit of a mini post with credits for a couple of pictures I’ve taken for a blogger contest. I didn’t really set out to do two such different pictures in fact I originally took two quite similar ones and then did like a woman and changed my damn mind! Who’d a thunk! So…

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…

Have you been there?

I was talking with a friend earlier today and he was asking me if I had ever been to a particular sim or community. I chuckled a bit and said no and he wondered why I was laughing. Because, I said, if it’s not a photosim, a shopping event or a place of work then…
