Strange

“Hey, anyone can get love, anyone can get laid
You know you’re home when you find the ones who
Stay brave enough not to tame, they let you burst into flames
Stoke the coals and then watch you blow, yeah
They’re the ones make you trust in the universe
When you’re lost and you’re left and it’s getting worse
They’re the ones who you know will get you by
We are all strange
And it ain’t never, never, ever gonna change
We are all strange
And it ain’t never, ever, never gonna change”

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!

Love Cats

“We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I’d do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It’s the grooviest thing
It’s the perfect dream
Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
It’s a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats”

Challenge to Challenge

It’s that time of year again, when my demons come out the play and my brain just doesn’t want to focus all on its own. So, once again, rather than continue to slap lyrics and songs ALL the time…I am presenting my readers with a challenge. All five of you…lol. I have subscribers that look at the pictures, but I don’t think I have very many actual readers. You guys are my favorites and I can say that, cuz the others don’t read..lol. Ok, so…last year, I offered up a Dangerous Proposition and had a few people participate. I’m hoping that this year’s challenge will bring a few more responses. This year, the suggestions I’m looking for are a bit more specific, yet very random at the same time.
So, here goes…I’m looking to be challenged with two completely random things for me to compare or connect in some way. Some examples would be like…an apple and a wrench, a candle and a cellphone, a piece of cake and a paint brush. Sure, I could use these examples, but it would take the fun out of the challenge for me. This should be especially easy for Grace Sixpence, as last year she always gave me two random things to write about anyway. So, no, you can’t use the ones listed above. So, I challenge you to challenge me. If you’re a blogger that writes and would like to play along just add #challengetochallenge to your suggestion and I will send you two random items to write about, as well.

No Rest

“My one heart hurt another
So only one life can’t be enough
Can you give me just another
For that one, who got away
Lonely I, I’m so alone now
There’ll be no rest for the wicked
There’s no song for the choir
There’s no hope for the weary
You let them win without a fight”

Sady & Rina

So, it finally happened. I finally pinned Rina Edenflower down for a collaboration. She is so completely talented it blows me away and I humbled that she took the time to pose with me. In fact, she hosted our collaboration and look it….I had Rina’s hand on my thigh for hours!!! Don’t hate! Congratulate!! *grins* Seriously, this was so much fun and the time we spent together taking our photos was really fantastic. She is as beautiful inside as she is outside. I wish I could tell you her story, but it isn’t mine to tell. Let’s just say, you have no freaking idea what other people have gone through until you take the time to genuinely talk and listen. I love her more today than I imagined possible and I am so grateful to call her my friend. I truly hope that you will see more collaborations from the two of us in the future.

I’m a Mess

I’ve been told that I’m a bit of a downer lately and I know it’s true. I’ve also been told that I need to socialize more, but the downer thing is exactly why I can’t right now. I have to keep busy, keep moving forward until all of this real life crap is so far behind me that I can barely see it, much less cry over it. I’m sorry to to the friends that need me right now. I’m simply not strong enough for both of right now. You deserve better, but please know that I do love you all…I am just a mess right now. I’m doing my best to keep myself pulled together, but the minute I stop moving forward…the very moment I let my demons have so much as one second of time in my head. I’m doomed. So, am I withdrawing and isolating? Yes, a bit, but I am trying not to withdraw too much. I even reached out to a handful of friends to do some collaborations. So, you’ll be seeing those soon. ♥

Cause you are so very

“Pink it’s my new obsession
Yeah, pink it’s not even a question
Pink on the lips of your lover, cause
Pink is the love you discovah
Pink as the bing on your cherry
Pink cause you are so very
Pink it’s the color of passion
A-cause today it just goes with the fashion”

Find the light

This entire song has been one of those songs that I’ve related closely to from the very first time I heard it. There’s a weird sense of comfort in surrendering myself to the pain accompanied by lyrics. I didn’t list all of the lyrics, just the first punch. This is one of those songs that just…well…give it a listen sometime and if you really hate the melody, maybe just google the lyrics and read them over. *shrugs* Do what you want, I know I do. *forces a smile*
“Yesterday was the tornado warning, today is like the morning after
Your world is torn in half, you wake and let’s wait to start the morning process
Rebuilding and you’re still a work in progress
Today is a whole new chapter, it’s like an enormous ass
The thunderstorm has passed ya
Your weather didn’t poke his eyes out with the thorn bush that you
Used to smell the roses, stopped to inhale can’t even tell your nose is stuffed
So focused on the brightside, then you floor the gas pedal
And hit the corner fast, the more asserted
Never looking back, may hit the curb
But everyday is a new learning curve, as you, steer through life
Sometimes you might not wanna swerve
But you have to to avert a disaster, lucky, no permanent damage
Cause they hurt you so bad, it’s like they murdered your ass
And threw dirt on your casket, but you returned from the ashes
And that hurt that you have, you just converted to gasoline
And while you’re burning the past, standing at inferno and chant
I’m standing in the flames
It’s a beautiful kind of pain
Setting fire to yesterday
Find the light, find the light, find the light”
