Pussyfoot

… because I got paw pads.

Pussyfoot

Yes, I’m still alive. I have been in SL from time to time. Even had good intentions to blog some of the stuff I bought, but it just didn’t happen. Until now!

The item that finally got me blogging, are my new paw pads by Slink. I don’t think they are actually a new item, but they were recently updated. For some reason, their existence had escaped my notice until now.

The rest of the picture is filled with the afore mentioned stuff I was intending to blog. Hair I got at Hairfair, outfit from a past Fifty Linden Friday, skin that was newly released when I bought it, pose from a closing sale and a rainbow sheep from the Pulse fundraiser.

I also got myself a new head! (One of those things you only hear in SL) I recently changed from Lelutka Karin to Catwa Helena. Mainly because the Catwa one has Omega support, so it has more options for customisation.

That also forced me to start using mesh eyes. So after reluctantly saying goodbye to my old system eyes, I got myself some mesh ones from a store called Puppy. This is actually a store for furry avatars, but with nekos not being fashionable any more, these stores are pretty much the only option for finding good feline parts.

And with that, everything is up-to-date again.

A bit morbid

… for Strawberry Singh’s Death Meme.

A bit morbid

Ms Singh recently had her birthday (belated happy birthday Berry!) And to celebrate this joyous event, she decided to ask us questions about death.

Yepp, you read that correctly: death.

Oh well, apart from taxes, it is the one thing you can be certain about. On to the questions:

  1. Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die? – I don’t think about dying that often and that’s a concious choice. Why ponder about something you can’t control anyway? Just makes you unnecessarily depressed. As for how I expect to die? Hopefully something quick, so I’ll never know what hit me.
  2. Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? – No, I don’t believe in any kind of afterlife. I know some people might find it shocking, but after I die I simply expect to be food for the worms.
  3. What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? – A friend of mine once had a dream about a meteor hitting the earth. In it she was happily telling people: “Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt!” So I’ll go with a meteor apocalypse. And hoping my friend was right.
  4. How many times have you cheated death so far? – I cheated death twice so far. I’ve had a thrombosis and cancer. I’m still here and doing just fine. But 2003 was definitely not my favourite year…
  5. Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? – That was a difficult one, but I think I’ll go with Dracula. There is just something sexy about that neck-biting.
  6. If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? – Hmm, I don’t think I would want to be a poltergeist for all eternity. But I would love to haunt the culprits for a couple of years at least.
  7. Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? – Probably not. I’m sure I’ll have forgotten something… Did I leave the gas on?

Rediscovery

… how did this blogging thing work again?

Rediscovery

Now that I’m back inworld, I seem to spend most of my time trying to catch up. It’s amazing how fast you lose touch with current events in SL.

It’s also amazing how fast you forget just how everything works. From finding that one function in the viewer, to what resolution you used to use for taking pictures, to the good old-fashioned “O dear, where in my black-hole of an inventory did I put that one item I really, really, need right now”.

Anyway, in the end I managed to find an outfit, put in on and take a picture of it.

Hello…?

… is anyone still reading this?

Hello...?

Honestly, I’m not expecting anyone to read this. Because dead blogs don’t have readers. And I know this one was so dead it was starting to smell.

So why did I disappear off the face of the blogosphere? Well… it just kind of happened. A combination of Second Life burnout, computer problems and just being busy with other things. But I was starting to miss SL, and I have a new computer, so the neko is back!

The first thing I did when I got back inworld, was try the new mesh body I had been reading about. I like it quite a bit. But OMG what does it take long to alpha, HUD, attach and applier yourself into an outfit. I’m really not wearing any kind of amazing ensemble, but it took me ages to assemble.

Crazy Chicken

… to eat or not to eat.

Crazy Chicken

A certain rainbow-kawaii-zombie-dead-girl (is that about right Rudh?) gifted me with this strange creature. As any good neko would do, I needed to decide if I could eat this crazy chicken or not.

In the end I decided I couldn’t eat it (ouch, my teeth). But I will definitely try to take a catnap on it later.

I’m not dead

… I was just having some technical difficulties.

I'm not dead

Well okay, a LOT of difficulties. I’m not sure what happened, but my Second Life experience was so bad for a while, that I really thought I’d have to quit it altogether.

SL had already been a bit unstable before, but shortly after my last post in February, I really started having problems. First I couldn’t detach or attach anything. After that, suddenly all my alpha-layers refused to rezz. Followed by every other texture. Not to mention the lag…

But then the biggest problem started: constant crashing. I usually had time to rezz one bowl of food for my KittyCatS, read one notecard… and that was it. The one way to stay on longer was to walk around constantly. Though that didn’t solve anything. Because as soon as I stopped doing that, to open my inventory or an IM window, you’ve guessed it… I’d crash.

I was pretty much pulling my hair out in frustration at this point (if it would rezz that is). And for I while I gave up on SL completely. And on blogging as well. Afterall, how can you have a SL-blog, if you can’t even log on? I thought about officially closing the blog too, but I still liked playing with my pixel-dolly. So I continued to give SL a try every once in a while.

My latest attempt involved uninstalling all my viewers and trying one I had never heared of before: Catznip. With a name like that, how could this neko not give that viewer a go? And miraculously… it worked! I could stay online and even take pictures OMG!!!

Ahum… anyway, hopefully my luck continues, and I can start posting stuff again in some kind of regular fashion. I really hope so, because I’ve really missed it.
