Things that happen

OK, so I have excuses but you don’t need to hear about them.Nope, not the work nightmares in general or the work travel nightmares (one of them resulting in 8 weeks of antibiotics).Really not.So we should get onto SL news, right?This could be a problem…

Disconcerting things

Well, top of the list of disconcerting things are:earache from orange juice (and from a bunch of other stuff, but… long and totally irrelevant story) andmy daughter (25, brilliant, geeky marketing person) reads my SL blog and I never knew.  Scar…

Yes, I am still trying to find my feet in SL again.And I will get there.Well, I hope so. However, our oldest cat (nearly 19) is fading fast and going for the big sleep this afternoon after a rather difficult few days.Not easy. Apologies for a huge digr…

Battered and flattered

Battered…?No, not so much me in RL any more – I’m feeling less battered by the day. So much so I found myself taking vain, vain photos of myself in SL last night (see at the end) rather than getting on with some building. Bad me. THIS battered.It’s o…

One step at a time

Don’t faint, or say “about time” or “oh, her again”, but… thanks to the pharmaceutical industry, slightly less horrendous RL deadlines, and a PC and a connection that work… and the Marketplace back in action (although not without blood, sweat and t…

Pettiness and cowardice

Let me tell you a story.A couple of months back I got a crappy review on the Marketplace for my Best Selling Item (yes, and ranted about it) because… it wasn’t delivered. A one-star report because of that (did she contact me? No).I flagged it, and it…

Apologising isn’t easy. Or is it?No, this is still not a breathless bit of plugging for Vent du Sud.I need to tackle this marketplace thing, see, and I’m putting it off. And still trying to find my feet in SL again.Is that saying sorry? Er no, it’s a f…

How to be totally disgusted

There are plenty of things that irritate me on SL. Ranging from bling, face lamps, tacky textures, ugly builds and people who use text speak (how hard is it to type “you” and “your” and “before”?)But this? THIS?http://associatedslpress.thebestofsl.com/…

Wistful, wondering and weary

So I’m sure my  massive readership is desperate for news (pardon the sarcasm, it’s been a long day).My patience with work overload is wearing thinner by the day. The big question is whether I will reach the light at the end of the tunnel before I …

No I have not fallen off the planet

No, I really have NOT fallen off the planet.Work, however, has taken on epic proportions (to the point Mr RL has had to – gasp – cook).(Iron, no. He does not iron. I was pressing work my pants (clearly labelled ‘non-iron’ but it was a LIE) at 6 on Sund…

Blogs. Grammar nazis. Editing. Stuff.

Life’s busy. The real one, as in earning a living and running a house and having a social life. So, of course, now that SL works again, my brain tends to have shut down by the time I log in.Bah.Bad me. But this is cyclic, and my SL to a large extent de…

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Was it the Linden who took over my avatar (and found nothing wrong)?Was it the remote update to my ADSL box?Was it the third complete uninstall / reinstall of SL?Was it kind people crossing fingers and thumbs for me?  I dunno, but it works and has…

Dear Linden Labs – a letter from a nobody

 Dear Linden Labs,First, I’m no geek but for the last 30 years (you know, since we had floppies and parked our hard disks and I was incredibly avant garde for installing and using a 2400 baud modem) I’ve been handling my own PC issues and rarely n…

I was so much hoping to have a jubilant I AM BACK post, complete with photos of a brand new build and some fashion shots.(You can imagine them if you like). But, you lucky readers you, here is another whiny rant. I have no idea why (and once again I ha…

With murder in mind, and hey, MUSIC

You know, having fixed my blue screen issue I was lulled into a false sense of ‘if I really keep plugging away and reading IT forums and trying stuff, I will find the cause’ this time around.Also, it is a 90-minute round trip to take a sick PC into the…

Did you flush? Tales of a not-geek

Yes, I did.I am sitting here with half an eye on those little bars that show the internet connection. The ones that have been intermittently coming up with the yellow exclamation mark on and off all week, whatever I’ve been doing but particularly so wi…

Blue, blue…

I don’t know whether to direct my rage and frustration at French telecom, my SL viewer, my husband or the PC.Well, I don’t think it’s my PC that is making my Net connection blink out every time I log on to SL. Nor do I think my husband is taking up our…

New year, things off chests, and a request.

OK I got around to actually starting 2012 (mentally at least) a little late because of an RL work emergency or three… but started it I have. Finally. And that includes SL, where I am about to take up my virtual trowel and hard hat again. Also, I am g…

I have lost count of jobs coming in where the clients starts with ‘I know you’re away over Christmas but could you just…’ these last two days. So I have, meaning that this blog post may not be terribly coherent but two things.No, three.First, however…
