When in Doubt

My friend Spirit mentioned something to me a few weeks ago about when I was getting married. I laughed and said never, and her next sentence hit me deep inside. She said, “perhaps your lack of committing fully is a sign in itself.” I blew the comment off, but knew it would rankle and fester if I didn’t think about it some. I don’t really understand my commitment phobia, I honestly don’t. But I know many of us grow up in families in which there’s anxiety. Whether it’s the anxiety to disappoint a parent or just a parent’s inability to relate to their children, well those are mine, I am sure others grew up with different pressures. With this fear of failing in a relationship how can it not lead to my poor communication skills in romantic courtships? My self-doubts, worries and insecurities would leave the most stalwart of men running for the door. It actually has a few times in the past, because who wants to wait for ever for someone who may never take that last step?… Read the rest18380434735_b6426c78e3_o

Life When You’re Not Looking

If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron. ~Lee Trevino I spent the weekend with Taylor, he’s looking for a second home, a condo. What a restful time it was! The unit itself was so well appointed and massive! Three bedroom with three baths and a giant porch on the beachside. I didn’t like the beach nearly as much as the peaceful land in front of my condo, but this condominium had the luxury of having the ocean view and a golf view. I can’t say I follow much golf but I found the entire weekend rather amusing. They have these people, usually women that I noticed, who drive around on carts to bring the golfers drinks (soda or water, I’m sure ;) ). The thing is, what goes in must come out. I’m not sure which golf hole we were staying over but I’m thinking it must have been near the end because one time when I looked down there was a fellow half trousered watering the palmetto bushes.… Read the restLife is About Options

Drama Queen

“Difficulty is inevitable. Drama is a choice.”  ~ Anita Renfroe I was strongly advised by my closest friend not to get involved in the current “drama central” blowing up on Facebook and I agree with her, I won’t, other than it saddens me. The thing is, the part that saddens me the most is the blind “followers” on either side of an argument. I want to begin with I am not a model or a fashion icon. Don’t get me wrong, I modeled but I wasn’t truly a model. Wait that’s not right either, I modeled but I fell short of what makes a person in the SL Fashion industry iconic. Do you know what I mean? The Winter Jefferson’s, Miaa Rebane’s, Marcopol Oh’s, Diconay and Mimmi Boa’s, and even at one time Ponchituti Boucher, and that’s just a handful of them. I suppose it could be argued they were the golden generation of Second Life modeling. Heck I’d even add in Strawberry Singh, though she proclaims not to be one, she surely is.… Read the rest7d02c26a07d33d6f850b85d3eaa42748

The View From the Small

The thing you fear most has no power. Your fear of it is what has the power. Facing the truth really will set you free. ~Oprah Winfrey When something seems too overwhelming to face that you feal you can’t breathe, stare at the ocean, a mountain, a canyon. Look at the depth, breadth, its sheer massive-ness of being. Surely in it’s grandeur you will realize how small your problem truly is. Just thought I’d throw that one out there. You know, in case someone needed to hear it. If not, I hope you love the wares. <3 Outfit

Heck of a Trip


Jerremy and I took our prim son, Blocky, on a field trip. We want him to grow up to be a cultured, well-rounded, plywood boy, so we often take him to places like museums and the LEA sims. This trip, we went to Cocytus: The 9th Circle of Hell. It was a long drive, but driving to Hell is a lot more pleasant than flying on United.

It's never too early to scare your baby straight. I am not going to have the preschool teacher calling me to tell me that my son was cheating at Candyland. 

There are four levels to this particular circle of the underworld and it was taking forever to walk through it, so we flew. Even though flying is highly discouraged, we figured, "WHat can they do to us if we are already here?" Surprisingly there is very little lag in hell. The crowds were mostly encased in the lakes of ice, so we didn't have to wait in any lines. And I don't want to tell Satan how to do his job, but, I'm not sure giving people ice down here is punishment.    


You know what was really annoying about hell?… Read the rest

X is the Loneliest Number


Sometimes you just have to embrace the quirks of SL. Even when it might affect your bowing game. I'm not going to blame the lack of mesh ball return machines or the blinding neon for my poor game, but I am not going to blame myself either.

Do you know what makes regular prims and neon decor look better? Black and white photography. Consider that another SLife Hack from me to you.

I ended up here at the Land of Giants bowling alley after glancing at the SL events calendar and finding a bowling tournament. I was desperate to find something to do besides shop and explore. I like bowling as much as the next person and I thought it might be a chance to meet some new people. 
I got all dressed in bowling shoes and everything, but no one was there!!  I didn't want to bowl alone, but I did because no one on my entire friends list was in-world. (That just goes to show why I need to meet new people, yes?)
The Land of Giants is an interesting place. If you ever had the chance to visit Greenies when it was around, then you'll understand when I say that this place might have been inspiration for it.… Read the rest

Common Woes


Jiminy Christmas, how difficult is it to get a common out of this damn gacha machine?? I don't even really want these shoes anymore at this point. I will probably just rage wear the pair I want if I ever even wear them at all. 

I will trade 4 pairs of the Shiny Shabby event Eclipse oxfords for one pair: I'll give you a black common oxford shoe, a vinaccia common, a brown common oxford, and an oxford plateau brown RARE from Eclipse in exchange for one pair of white (or is it gray?) common oxford shoes. In fact, I'll give you several of the black commons; you can pass them out to your friends and start a shoe gang. 


While I  wait to hear back from someone who wants to trade, I will just lie here and think about how ridiculous my SLife has become.

The Space Between

Loneliness is my least favorite thing about life. The thing that I’m most worried about is just being alone without anybody to care for or someone who will care for me. ~ Anne Hathaway I’m at that space between in Second Life. Not wanting to “be there” and not wanting to leave. I didn’t prepare anything to blog tomorrow. I actually left my platform in the sky and started boxing up my house and it’s contents down on the ground. I did it consciously and meticulously, meaning I took it up piece by piece not one massive return and put the items in detailed folder’s, “kitchen”, “dining”, “Guest room,” “living,” “master,” etc. When I was done, I looked around at my cleaning efforts and sighed. It is done. A clean slate. Time to not worry about virtual things too much and to just set back, rest, and dream a little bit. Have a gentle slide into the weekend because it’s almost here!… Read the rest17719359589_db6bbd2556_o
