Let’s Take Another Selfie!

I have to say that while the duck faces and bathroom mirror selfies are really amusing and tacky. I am grateful for the fact that our smart phones have helped us perfect those self portrait photos. I remember holding cameras up to take pics with friends and hoping for the best, only to find us headless when the photos were finally developed. I remember waiting a week for photos to get developed. It’s amazing how such a simple thing has changed our lives so dramatically. Just think, there are people alive today that know nothing about having to rewind film and dropping it off to have it developed into 4×6 prints…doubles if you were willing to pay extra! Now not only can we take accurate selfies, but we can take pictures of ourselves taking selfies! *giggles*

Almost Time

It’s almost time for us to break out the summer clothes and the swimsuits. This year, I’m planning a big spring cleaning project. I’m going through my RL inventory and decluttering my life. Clothes I haven’t worn for more than a year…GONE! Knick knacks with no sentimental attachments or things I don’t LOVE….GONE! Then I’m redecorating my bedroom. I’m going to paint it and rearrange the furniture. I might do the same with my bathroom. As for the pool? Yeah, I’ll leave that to SL, cuz my ass does not go out in public in a swimsuit….*laughs*….there are children there and they will be scarred for life.

Living on the Farm

When I was eight years old, my father was stationed in Germany for the second time. There was a waiting list for housing on the base, so for the first year of that tour we rented an apartment about forty-five minutes away from the military bases. It was on the top of a small mountain that overlooked a modest little village. By the time we lived there, the property had been turned into a farm, but once upon a time it had been a castle. As an only child at eight years old with a very vivid imagination, it was whatever I wanted to be. However, one of my favorite memories was riding on the tractor. The landlord adored my little blonde haired blue eyed American self and would take me around to his different dairy farms across the country side on the tractor. I honestly think that was the best year of my childhood.

E2V-I’m No Expert, but…

So, there’s been a lot of posts on Facebook (and other social media, I’m sure) as well as notices being sent out in SL about the E2V system shutting down. I’m no expert, but let let me try to explain what’s happening. I’ve been watching designers scramble for solutions and suggestions to their customers. It truly breaks my heart. I’ve heard a lot of bitching from others about being forced to use or lose their credits. So, I wanted to take a minute and explain what I know about the situation, regarding both sides.
I’m going to start with the designers. I’m hoping that customers will read this and perhaps have a bit more empathy for the designers and their predicament. The way the system works is that they drop a script into their vendors and they have a server in which they drop the actual product. This system stores the purchase history of each customer, the products, maintains the credits, and re-deliveries. These designers were given a very short notice to come up with an alternative system and change over all of their vendors. Some of these stores have thousands of vendors. Think about each single color, plus fatpacks. They have to manually go through all of those vendors to set up said new system or go back to the old days when you simply bought the contents of the box, there were no credit systems or gifting options. This is going to be a tremendous amount of tedious work, regardless of which direction they go with their vendors. There are options out there, but each designer has to figure out what is best for them. I know that if I were a designer, I’d probably go back to the old way of doing things to prevent myself from ever being in this situation again.
From the customer’s perspective, some of them have been saving their credits so they can eventually afford a fatpack, or they’ve got so much credit they can’t possibly spend it all right away. As one of my friends stated, “I have everything I want from that store and there’s nothing new at the moment.” Fortunately, we all have until the end of May to use those gift cards and credits. Something else to remember, in the real world gift cards expire after one year and sometimes you get a gift card for a store that goes out of business before you ever get a chance to use it. I understand that it’s going to suck if you lose your store credits in this process, but its not the end of the world. I promise. I know that most stores are honestly trying to find an alternative for you all, but some stores are simply too big and their database is too massive to manually reach out to each and every customer while changing their vendors at the same time.
This is a lose lose for everyone. I’m asking that everyone remember that this does not affect just one or two people….one or two stores…this is a grid wide disaster. Please be kind to one another. Be patient, put yourself in the other person’s shoes. To customers, I beg you to please be kind to the designers. Do not yell at them, this is NOT their fault, no more than it is yours. Designers, I know you are all trying so hard and most of you have probably broken down into tears at some point. Try to remember that so many of your customers are simply confused and absolutely unaware of the details of this situation. I ask that everyone please refrain from attacking one another. I trust that designers will go out of their way to assist as many people as they can, but you will need to be patient as these designers have more on their plates at the moment than they’ve had in a very long time. Remember we’re all here to have fun…so please please please be kind to one another and try to understand…no one wanted this, but it is what it is.

Rather Be Single

I’m not sure what’s wrong with some of the men in Second Life. They jump into relationships and then they disappear. What is the point of that? Why bother being in a relationship in SL if you don’t have time to be inworld? I don’t know about the rest of you, but if I’m going to spend most of my time alone, I’d rather be single. It’s not even about the sex, its about the companionship. Its about having that special someone to share your Second Life with….someone to run to when you’re sad or excited. Someone to cuddle with, to dance with, to hang out with on a regular basis. So, why bother romancing someone if you’re just going to abandon them the minute they succumb to your charms? I suspect a lot of people get cheated on that way, but that’s not my style. I don’t need to cheat, I just need to ditch your ass, cuz I can’t date a ghost.

Feeling Peachy

At my last job, there was a woman that was having an inner office affair. She had trusted a few of us with her secret, but when she told us that he had used a can of peaches to enhance their…uhm…oral pleasures. Well, from that day forward anytime someone said, “How are you today?” and someone answered, “I’m just peachy.” My best friend and I would burst into giggles, because feeling peachy has forever taken on a new meaning to us. Perhaps now that I’ve shared that little story with you, it will make you giggles the next time someone says they’re feeling peachy. It’s been years since that happened and it still makes me laugh. As I’ve said many times before, laughter is one of those wonderful parts of life that makes it all worth it sometimes. ♥

A Little Wicked

Since my friends thought that my sweet and innocent post was too far of a stretch for me…assholes…I thought I’d show them what they really want to see. I mean who doesn’t love to see a woman on her knees, bare breasted, right?  Well, they seem to prefer me a little wicked. It’s a good thing, cuz that’s my comfort zone, isn’t it? Just nod and smile, you know I just waked and baked. *blows smoke* I’m feeling a little wicked this morning, so I’m going to cut this short and go find some trouble. *grins*

Waiting For Paint To Dry

Regardless of whether you’re a DIY or Salon girl, getting your nails done is like waiting for paint to dry. I’m clearly profiling, but in my neck of the woods the best nail shops are run by Asians, mostly Vietnamese or Korean. Y’all know me, I ask questions. I’d rather sound ignorant for asking a question than be ignorant while assuming I know something I don’t. You’d think a salon full of people wouldn’t make you zone out, but when they’re chattering away in their native language and it all just sounds like high pitched noises to you…well, its easy to zone out. Painting your nails at home, you try to get everything situated before you start, because its going to take a while before you can move about freely. You nail polish is unforgiving! This is when I tend to slip down inside myself and get lost in thoughts. If good things are happening in my life, I can revel in my blessings. I can be grateful and wish good things, send love & light to others. It’s like a fairy tale room in my mind. However, if things are messed up or I’m going through a rough time, that’s when my demons come out to play. Its like getting locked in the attic with a room full of creepy dolls, each one whispering a secret in a creepy little doll voice.

Please, Do Not Disturb

There’s a certain irony involved with a do not disturb message. Oddly enough, isn’t that usually when we want to? Just for kicks? Oh, that’s just me? Oh, c’mon….well…this is what happens when I wake and bake. I slide down walls and wonder about strange shit. My life is seriously bizarre right now. I can’t even begin to explain some of the decisions I’m making. I’m not sure if I’m set to self-destruct or being adventurous. I guess time will tell.
