Dear Customers

Dear Customers,

Obviously, this is not aimed at every single customer in the world or even on the grid. However, it is aimed at enough people that I took it upon myself to use a blog post for the article. I’m not going to bitch at you or try to insult you, because customers are wonderful. Yet, there seems to a few things in Second Life that most customers seemed to be a bit confused about, so I’m going to try and help both the customer, as well as the designer, with a few helpful tips.

  1. Contacting the designer for any reason. First thing I recommend is looking at the designer’s profile. Most designers have specific instructions for common issues and a list of contacts for the fastest response. Follow those instructions. I promise, they’re there for a reason.
  2. Keep it Simple. Whatever the directions say to do…do it. Don’t go over the stop with long drawn out explanations. Designers are smart, they know what keywords mean. So, instead of explaining why you made a double purchase, just stated: Double purchase….and whatever else the designer needs from you.
  3. Transaction History. People, please, learn what this is…it is your friend and can save you so much frustration down the road. It surprises me how many people don’t know how to do this. You go to SecondLife.com  and log in. On the left, there’s a drop down menu for Account, then a clear and precise option for Transaction History. This will open up a variety of options with your most recent transactions listed, along with other pertinent information. Copy & paste what you need.
  4. Be polite & patient. Chances are if you’re having an issue with the fit or not receiving your item, other people might be, too. The designer might be dealing with complaints as quickly as possible. Being nasty and rushing the designer is not going to encourage them to help you any faster.
  5. Designers are human, too. Please remember that just like you, designers are people with lives in RL and some even manage to have one in SL. However, they are very busy and deserve some time off without having to hide on an alt. Being courteous takes you a long way.
  6. Profiles are important. Please read designer profiles, customer service profiles, etc. Make sure you are contacting the correct person and it might not hurt to double check what your sending to make sure its got all the right info.
  7. Legacy names matter! I personally like to sign my notecards with a copy of my calling card. Just type your name into your inventory search and you’ll find yours. This makes it easier for the designer to find you. However, if for some reason a calling card is too difficult for you…-_-…please copy your legacy name, not your display name. You cannot be searched by display name and it is not the designer’s job to play detective to figure out who sent them what.

That’s it for now, my lovelies. However, my regular readers know I love doing these “Dear _______” posts. So, there you have it, the first directed at customers. Happy Shopping!

Diamonds & Mud

Yes, I’m still processing challenges from my Challenge to Challenge post. Today I’m addressing RubyStarlight Writer‘s challenge. She suggested diamonds & mud. Unfortunately, I’m very sick in RL and all I can think of is that a stripper named Diamonds is a star mud wrestler. Yeah, I know, its weak, but so am I atm. I’m sorry, Ruby. Right now, I just want to crawl into a grave and pull a blanket of dirt over me.

Skyscraper

“You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper”
~Kerli – Skyscraper

As humans, we take a lot of punches throughout our lives. Yet, with each passing day, we either grow stronger or weaker. Ultimately, the choice is ours. Mentally and emotionally, I’ve definitely grown stronger. My body? Eh, not so much. I should have taken better care of it when I was younger, but I was invincible and never imagined I’d live past 30. Here I am dealing with level 8 pain daily as the weather changes. Yet, the emotional and mental tolls have been far more difficult to face.
There have been times that I’ve felt as fragile as glass, as delicate as tissue paper, and I’ve been beaten down both literally and figuratively. But each and every time, so far, I’ve gotten up. I’ve gained strength from the pain. In fact, there are times that by keeping my pain to myself and not complaining about it, by not showing it to the world, that I can borrow from it….channel it into strength. I’ve siphoned power from the pain to keep going. Perhaps I’m a bit stubborn, too. I feel like if anyone is going to genuinely take credit for me falling apart, its going to be me. So, until I’m ready to curl up with the worms for eternity, I will continue to rise like a skyscraper.

Finally!

Finally, someone developed a hairstyle to conceal my horns! *giggles* These cubes from E.V.E remind me of one of those word search things I see on Facebook all the time. “Oh the first three words are what you can expect next year!” Well, the last one of those I did said love, marriage, and health. I laughed so hard.  Yes, I know love will always be part of my life, because I have a heart with which I love very deeply, too deeply. Marriage? NO, let’s pray a divorce is on the horizon though. Since the bastard left me essentially penniless to run off with a 20yr old skank. Yes, she is a skank, remind me to tell that story someday. It’s a doozy! And finally, the prediction was health? I’m going to assume they meant poor health, considering that at best there are treatments for my fybromyalgia and PKD, however, there are no known cures.
Let’s not ruin all the fun, let’s take a look at the cube. First word I see is battlefield and I’ll agree to that. I like violent films and shows, plus I play Guild Wars 2 with one of my best friends. So, yes, a battlefield is very likely. Next word…hate. Ohh, that’s a strong word. I don’t really have the energy to fuel hate. I’m more of a person that turns completely ambivalent. I just won’t acknowledge someone’s existence or care that they exist. In Second Life, its even better, because I can mute and derender people. That’s nice. Alright, third word I notice is Heaven. Well, I’m an atheist so I can only imagine that means, I’m going to be proven wrong and all of you do gooders are in for a big surprise when you show up OR (and this is more likely) someone is going to make me feel soo good that it will feel heavenly. These cubes are a group gift, so if you like them, you can grab a set for yourself, absolutely free.

So Many Miles…

“Time has come to go
Pack your bags, hit the open road
Our hearts just won’t die
It’s the trip, keeps us alive
So many miles
So many miles
So many miles
Away
They’re following some dance of light
Tearing into the night
Watching you fall asleep
The sweetest dove in a dream
So many miles
So many miles
So many miles
Away”
~Still Corners – The Trip

What You Eat

Okay, so we’ve all heard the phrase, “you are what you eat.” It’s been a while since I did a “what if” article, but I can’t help but wonder, “What if  you literally became what you eat for like an hour after you swallow it?” Yes, I’m going there, but only for a moment. *laughs* So, am I a sperm? Am I piece of fried chicken? What if we really did magically transform into whatever we ate for 10 mins to an hour? Would we watch what we ate more carefully? Would we all be lining up to eat supermodels? *giggles* And what about the people doing the hunger strikes? They eat nothing….does this mean they are nothing?

I do know that its a metaphorical saying, of course, but you ought to know me by now and know that my mind goes to some strange places late at night.

No One

Just this….cuz…reasons.

Mothica – No One

You curl my name with your lip
I take a drink, I hate it
I tell you what you want to hear, so I
Can catch my breath and step away
Think about what to say to you
While you come unglued
I don’t know how to make it clear
I’ve tried it out all these years
But it doesn’t seem to go through
Til now

Here I go, hear what I’m saying
What I want to say, what I want to say
All this time, you thought I would be your girl
I’m sorry, I belong to no one, no one
I belong to no one, no one
I’m not known to hold on, hold on too long

There you go, take it back
You didn’t mean this and you didn’t mean that
What were you thinking when you thought you could touch me last night?
I know you don’t think it’s wrong if you don’t break the skin
But if I want to touch, I’ll ask for it, oh oh oh, until I
Can catch my breath and step away
Think about what to say to you
While you come unglued
I don’t know how to make it clear
I’ve tried it out all these years
But it doesn’t seem to go through
Til now

Here I go, hear what I’m saying
What I want to say, what I want to say
All this time, you thought I would be your girl
I’m sorry, I belong to no one, no one
I belong to no one, no one
I’m not known to hold on, hold on too long

There you go, take it back
You didn’t mean this and you didn’t mean that
What were you thinking when you thought you could touch me
I know you don’t think it’s wrong if you don’t break the skin
But if I want to touch, I’ll ask for it, oh oh oh

Here I go, hear what I’m saying
What I want to say, what I want to say
All this time, you thought I would be your girl
I’m sorry, I belong to no one, no one
I belong to no one, no one
I’m not known to hold on, hold on too long
