I used to have an active Second [social] Life. It was loads of fun in the beginning. I call it the SL gloss and that gloss wore out quite some time ago. Teaching was fun. Pretending to be a model was fun too. Isn’t it funny how we can change interests even in our Second Lives?
For instance, now, I log in solely to blog. If my old friends get my autoreply, chances are I really am in Photoshop, or I just don’t have anything to say. Regardless of what I am doing, I let my autoresponse do the talking.
Don’t get me wrong. There are a couple of people I miss chatting to. My old friend Tiff is one. The last time I ‘spoke’ to her, she was choreographing dances, which I think is so fun. You know how I love my animations. Anyway, if I could do that without the actually ‘talking’ to others, I totally would.
I mean, I could choreograph a dance or two and then blog it, but since I only hang out with myself (you’ve met Sunshine and Taco, my real life husband…I took control of his avatar a long time ago), it’s sort of computer intensive lol. I suppose I just wanted to say, if you get my autoresponse, it’s because I’m just here to relax and get away from my real life. Other times, I only have enough charm left at the end of the day for one. 😉
If there is any fairy tale character I could really understand, I would have to say it’s Thumbelina. Before I get too deep, it’s due to my size. I swear to my husband that I’m five feet tall and he swears that I’m lying. Okay, so he knows me well but I know how men gauge inches so I thought I was safe! Really, the perfect height for me would be 5′ 4″ so I could wear flats. I can’t complain. Perhaps my mother wished for a tiny little child like Thumbelina’s mother did?
In spite of my size, I am the big boss lady at my workplace. I suppose I mastered my everything is okay face because my assistant manager claimed I was her hero due to my ability to handle everything in stride and be pleasant at the same time. Little does she know, but I am far from fine.
She is younger than me, so I’m trying to play the good role model, but sometimes I wonder if it is ever okay to say I don’t give a fuck about your problems because I have my own? At the same time, I love my life.
It’s really not so bad. Yes, my thoughts are a bit convoluted at times, but that’s the way I roll and the only way I can fly. ಠ‿↼

…because “I shake it off, I shake it off.” This is kind of embarrassing, but I literally shake my head to clear it off thoughts. I never really noticed it, of course, until my hubby pointed it out. Apparently, I also frown in my sleep. Thanks for letting me know husband. Ah, romance (actually, I think it is totally romantic to notice my subconscious moments). 😉
The whole point of my post is to point out my jacket, so disregard my ramblings! PurpleMoon Creations has one of the coolest jackets ever available at On9. The Iridescent jacket is materials ready, and I really wasn’t able to notice the real coolness until I logged on using the official SL Viewer. Now, mind you, it may be my graphics card because I am a frequent user of Phoenix and typically see everything I need to and want to.
See the green light in the picture above? It seems materials ready clothing adds the oomph to oh my.
I wore the lights (in my case green and purple) included in the package, but try going outside for a moveable light source to see the effects.
It’s my second fall in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sorry, I have to clarify the state because I’m from New Mexico. We have a Las Vegas too, but it’s not the glitter and glam of Sin City. Anyway, my first fall here was strange. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Now, I’ve noticed fall/winter wear paired with summer wear, and it’s typically warm on top and cool on the bottom.
Fall fashion has hit SL, but true to my new RL home, I mixed fall and summer. Actually, I did this in New Mexico too. Maybe it’s a desert upbringing? Regardless, PurpleMoon Creations‘ Sola Vest is cozy and chic and is available in a variety of patterns via a HUD, so you can go rawr or snuggly. You’ll find the Sola Vest at Tres Chic until October 10th. Click PurpleMoon at Tres Chic for your taxi.
August 22nd brings the most indulgent event of the year. The The Hottie Cooterati Experience revealed, “The Festival of Sin returns with a promise of debauchery in the form of the seven deadliest sins.” While I’ve been known to partake in a sin or two (or three), Greed struck home. Since moving to Las Vegas aka Sin City, sins run abound, but Greed is especially noticeable due to the giant casinos and the sheer amount of cash flow and desperation to hit it big. I mean…there are slot machines inside Smith’s Grocery Store, CVS, and most gas stations!
When you hit the festival, you’ll find that seven neighborhoods symbolize each deadly sin. I actually loved walking around. Wrath was seedy and dirty. See the jail. Lust was Moulin Rogue style where a newbie avatar dummy propositioned me. Envy reminded me of a white picket fence neighborhood, but the type of neighbors who secretly hate one another. I could go on and on, but you’ll have to see it for yourself. Make sure to hit Greed for the
Gacha machines and gift shop. While we all know Gacha machines are a gamble, the gift store has all kinds of free goodies.
One of my co-workers said she was always bummed out on sunny days. It threw me for a loop because I’m the exact opposite. Consequently, I tried to find the beauty in a gray sky day. I fell asleep several times, but I think that’s due to me laying in bed watching true crime TV. What did I learn?
Perhaps I have conditioned myself to believe the sun inspires positivity. Because honestly, I’ve had plenty of lazy sunny days.

Oh, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. In fact, I walked around in Second Life today, while wearing PurpleMoon‘s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream Corset” and an avatar complimented my look! It threw me for a loop. Personally, it’s the total opposite of getting caught shopping in real life because I never look this good in real life. 😉
Look for the purple egg and find your treat. Did you know purple is often associated with royalty and power? Thus, all the treats are delicious pieces in all shades of purple. Also, they don’t cost one linden. Free can be both stylish and sexy. Here’s a lift to PurpleMoon.
For last minute hunters, here are the rules:
1- This hunt is free and open to public (no group membership required)
2- The object you are looking for is an egg in purple polka dot texture (like the sample pictured in the poster)
3- To receive the gift, simple TOUCH the egg!. You will be given an object that you can WEAR to UNPACK.
4- The eggs are numbered from 1 to 10.
5- There are no hints given. They are easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else. They are only hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the Main Store, no outdoors or upper level.
6- The balloons decorating the rooms are an indicator that there are purple eggs hidden in that room.
