Happy rezday to me

It’s hard to believe I’ve been around for about two-thirds of Second Life’s history.

I’ve never been married in SL (although I should in this most gorgeous of gowns), never opened a business and never had a job, yet there has always been plenty to do and discover.

My project for the first part of this year is completing my platform garden and opening it to visitors. I tried twice in the last 18 months but the land owners closed their sims at critical moments and I lost all my work. Perhaps it will be third time lucky if I can understand the meaning of ‘low prim’ plants and props — my house at ground level has no furniture left and the landscaping is now being cannibalised to feed the garden in the sky.

Pointy bits

I was moving the contents of my computer to Dropbox and found an old folder of works in progress or, more to the point, a single, neglected work in progress. This was a test picture for a pose shoot for VICE Poses — another look was selected but this is one of my favourite outfits from sYs.

Disco inferno

Disco inferno

Hello and welcome to 2013.

I can’t believe I haven’t taken or posted a picture for two months. I was away twice and then my madly-anticipated Christmas break turned into a week of veterinary emergencies for one of my dogs (she’s going to recover, thank goodness), and now I’m stuck home with a persistent and nasty respiratory infection.

I have been tired and not feeling the slightest bit clever so I have been:

  • thinking about taming my inventory (that thought didn’t last long)
  • pondering if I’m brave enough to go through the horrors of buying and colour-matching mesh hands and feet (not yet)
  • making a massive change to my avatar and modifying my hand size from 20 to 10 (I decided I like my current look so it can stay pretty much as is)
  • trying to maintain my RSS feed of Shopping Cart Disco but not read the SL Secret posts (it bewilders me that so many people have the time and motivation to create nasty entries and further blacken their shrivelled little hearts. Go take a walk or some other less angst-ridden alternative to SL if you’re affected so negatively)
  • playing with this fun prop from the marketplace and trying to create an image different to my usual styles (no rabbits or flowers here)
