On Display

I’m a huge fan of the display name option in SL and I’ve had quite a few, because I love having fun with them. With that said, I’ve seen some that just made me sad for humanity, but then again some of mine have probably made others feel the same way. One thing I love about them is that so many people change theirs around this time of year to reflect an enthusiasm for the holiday season, or the lack thereof. With that said, I present my annual display name: SadyClaws!
I’ve had a few that got me run out of PG places, so a warning to those that haven’t played with display names too much but might feel obliged to now. Keep them pg unless you don’t care.

In the the meantime, please be kind to one another. Remember that suicide rates are highest during the holidays…so please talk to someone if you’re sad…and for those that aren’t sad (YAY!) please be sure to check on your friends that might be. I have to tell you, that when you’re in a dark place and your friends just check in on you? Well, it can make a huge difference. So, be good little humans, and just maybe Santa will bring you something nice this year!

Winter Dreams

Thanksgiving in the U.S. seems to set the the tone for the holidays, for me, at least. That is the day that the Holiday season truly begins. As we transition from Halloween to a few weeks of Autumn, its the day after the turkey is carved that my family has always set up our Christmas tree and began decorating. It is also on that day that I begin the annual prayer for snow. I realize that a lot of you are rolling your eyes, perhaps even groaning a bit, because you dread the snow or perhaps you already have it. However, where I live, we rarely get any snow and when we do, its a very light dusting and you can usually still see the grass. About once a year we get a solid inch or two that actually covers the lawn and the entire city shuts down. People laugh at us for shutting down, but given how often we have snow, why would our cities invest millions of dollars into equipment for clearing roadways when we all know it’ll be gone by noon tomorrow? Once in a great while, we get enough snow to keep the city still for a few days and THAT is the snow I pray for. I want enough snow to watch my dog delightfully hop around like a goat on crack! I want my kittens to see snow for the first time (read that sentence out loud if you can, now try it three times fast). I can not wait to watch them shake their little wet paws as they look at up me with accusing eyes.

I don’t pray for long snow filled winters that require shovels and all of that, just a few days of WOW! You see, when that kind of snow happens here…well, my inner child shouts with glee and quickly layers up regardless of how much pain the cold wet fluff might cause my bones. My inner child is bursting at the seams to throw a snowball and if I’m really lucky? I’ll get to make a snowman! So, as the day of thanks is upon me and the turkey roasts deliciously in my oven, my eyes are already on the sky and my winter dreams have begun.

By the way, get you lindens ready, because the ultimate Christmas event begins on November 25th and it is astounding. C’mon, sing with me!

Wie treu sind deine Blatter!
O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum
Wie treu sind deine Blatter!
Du grunst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit,
Nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum
Wie treu sind deine Blatter!
