Do you want to know a secret?

Sometimes I can’t sleep. Okay, I know. That secret sucks because it isn’t salacious or juicy. If it helps, my secret may be your secret. When insomnia hits, we may have a lot on our minds. See? You aren’t alone. If you have Pose Fair on your mind, you are definitely not alone. Animations breathe life into our Second Life personas. So…are you  ready?

I am numb

Pose Fair starts Friday, April 14th at 12pm SLT, and it runs till April 29th. I’m giving you a sneak preview into what to expect, especially if you are a fan of WetCat. “Daddy’s Girl” Bear Prop offers 9 single pose options and 6 couple pose options. If you want, change the teddy bear’s coat with 7 choices. “Cyber-Link” WebCam Prop, below, is available in naughty and nice. After all, life fluctuates between PG and R (or XXX in some cases <3).

The world is sleeping

I have to warn tall avatars, though. I’m very short in RL, so I like to go to the extreme opposite in SL. Wetcat Flux used short and curvy shapes when creating “Daddy’s Girl” and “Cyber Link” as she mentions in her note. If you’re a tall avatar too, be prepared to take advantage of the ability to adjust your position.  Don’t worry. It’s easy to adjust!

Now, get some sleep, if you can USA peeps. If you’re on an international time zone, better stay up. After all, Pose Fair 2017 starts at 12 PM SLT! 😉

Probable Cause: “It’s where my demons hide.”

It’s time for catharsis. Although I should treat my home to a massive and literal spring cleaning, my mind and soul take precedence. Because in order for the literal spring cleaning to work, the actual laborer has to feel like he or she is in the mood.

It's where my demons hide

In this instance, the laborer is me because it’s my journal, but surely I’m not alone? If I’m not, wash all the angst away.

It_s where my demons hide

There may be remnants of psychological ew tomorrow, but every cleanse needs a second day.  Trust me. I do this every season. It doesn’t last all year, but it might for you!

Though this is all for you

And here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson

You know, I’ve never seen The Graduate, but I heard a remake of “Mrs. Robinson” on my way to work today, and it’s been in my head ever since. I’m not sure what the original songwriters meant when writing the lyrics, but it’s always been a song that made me think of dual personalities, but not in a mentally ill kind of way, if that makes sense. I mean…have you ever said one thing and shown the exact opposite?

and-heres-to-you-mrs-robinson

For instance, I’ve told people two glasses of wine can knock me out. I would never share that I can down an entire bottle and stay awake. Obviously, I am impaired, but I’m still wide awake. Well, I just shared, but I’ll hold my fingers accountable for that.

In many cases, it’s okay to show one face to the public and one face in private. When the two intersect, it can be hypocritical depending on the receiver. Here’s another fun example. My co-worker interviewed several applicants for a position opening.

hide-it-in-the-hiding-place-where-no-one-ever-goes

The candidate was charming, spoke highly of the company, and had many skills.Unfortunately, as in life, there is usually someone better than you (reader rest assured it’s not me), so my co-worker opted to go with someone who had more of the skills she was looking for.

This charming schmoozer with a wide variety of skills replied to the rejection email with 🖕.  I’ve never seen that either. Takeaway? We can’t judge a book by its cover because it may be missing crucial pages. C’est la vie.

Open House: “I’m useless but not for long.”

Never, ever, do real estate with the seller’s family. My husband and I decided to officially plant roots in Las Vegas by purchasing a house. Husband: Hey, guess what, a co-worker wants to sell her home! Me: Oh wow, what are the odds? Must be a blessing and meant to be! No. That’s not always the case. A few days ago, I sat silently while the real estate licensee (seller’s sister) tried to set up a meeting with my husband. Apparently, my credit hasn’t reached the mark yet, which is totally okay, but it’s like hey I’m still here. Can someone besides my husband acknowledge I’m part of this?

Open House

I will be a first-time home buyer, so I guess that makes me a virgin, but I always imagined real estate agents were equally respectful of both the buyer and the seller. I may be a virgin, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have feelings. 😉 This contract is contingent on our credit, so if this doesn’t pan out, I totally understand. For what it’s worth, I would love to check out empty houses to feel the realtors’ vibes and previous owners’ energy left behind.  Although, open houses do not sound appealing. I imagine the crazy realtor from American Beauty.

Incidentally, Designer Showcase’s April round will actually be a closed house on April 30, so if you haven’t made it by there, check it out. I hear there will be a brand spanking new location. Now, those are positive vibes.

Tis the Season

I’m back home! We celebrate Thanksgiving early because it’s easier to travel in the middle of November rather than the actual day. Family affairs are rough, so it’s good to be home.

Don’t get me wrong. I miss my family but once you hit a certain age, or maybe once you live on your own, staying at mom and dad’s can be difficult.

Tis the Season

Tomorrow marks the end of Designer Showcase’s November round. It officially ends at midnight, so it’s your last chance to pick up designer goodies at promotional prices. Lots of fun cocktail dresses. Tis the season for dressing up!

Through my eyes I see the past

Don’t you love May? I do because it’s like half summer and half spring, at least in my neck of the woods. We have the summer time heat, but the springtime showers.

Speaking of May, Designer Showcase’s May round is alive and kicking. Designer Showcase features many talented designers across the grid. Case in point, Entice has a jumpsuit, aptly called “Sweetness Follows,” for sale at Designer Showcase.

Incidentally, Entice is a collaboration of Second Life designers Jolene Carami and Kira Paderborn and they are also participating in the upcoming Penumbra Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015.
