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.

Portrait Mode

… for Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme.

Portrait Mode

This week’s meme instructions were pretty simple: “Share a black & white portrait (headshot) of your Second Life avatar. You can post a raw shot or process the image as much as you like.”

But actually making that portrait was a little bit less simple. The black & white part of the meme, I was okay with. But the portrait part of it… I always find portraits a difficult thing to do. Which is why there are so little of them on this blog. I do take portrait-shots, but I always end up deleting them, because I just can’t make them work.

Anyway, I decided to start with a normal color snapshot and post-process it. Then pushed it through some filters and fiddled with some sliders. First in GIMP, then in PicMonkey.

Winter is Coming

… for Strawberry Singh’s Winter Season meme.

Winter is Coming

The last couple of weeks have been rather weird for me. It started with a cousin having her first baby, followed two days later with the death of my husband’s grandfather, followed a couple of days later by my sister-in-law’s wedding, followed by grandfather’s funeral.

Oh and followed by my birthday. I actually had a very intelligent “huh, what?” reaction when someone mentioned that, because I had completely forgotten about my own birthday.

But anyway, I finally found some time and energy to do some blogging. Time for another meme:

  1. What is the December/Winter season like where you live? I live in the Netherlands. This means there may be some snow, but usually we only get rain, wind or fog. This time of year is often referred to as “the dark days before Christmas”. This post describes it much better then I ever could.
  2. When you think of winter, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? – I know this probably sounds stupid, but what it makes me think of is: cold. Cold hands, cold feet, cold… you get the idea.
  3. Have you ever played any extreme winter sports? – *falls over laughing* Ahum, sorry… I don’t like sports. I especially don’t like them in the cold and I’m way to much of a coward to do anything extreme. So that would be a no.
  4. What do you like most about this season? – I like that the cold weather gives me the perfect excuse to fire up the wood burner, wrap myself in a blanket and snuggle up on the couch. Basically “warm and cozy”. Yes, those furry feline parts on my avatar do represent a certain part of my RL personality. 😉
  5. Do you celebrate Christmas, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa or another holiday during this time of year? – I’m not in any way religious, but we do celebrate Christmas. For me it’s not December if there isn’t a tree in the living room. And I mean a tree, not one of those green, plastic things they tell me looks just like a tree. I don’t care if I still find needles in the carpet next July, I want a real Christmas tree.

The Geeky Meme

The Geeky Meme

Time for another round of Berry’s questions. This time inspired by the Geeks’n’Nerds Fair.

  1. What do you consider yourself to be? Geek? Nerd? Dork? None of the above? All of the above? – I don’t think I’m smart enough to qualify as a nerd, so that one’s out. I enjoy video games, comic books (of the Franco-Belgian type) and being on the internet, so that would make me a geek. But I’m also socially awkward like a dork. So I guess that makes me… a deek… a gork? Hmm…
  2. What was the first computer you ever owned? – The first computer I ever touched was probably my dad’s. That was a commodore 64 or something similar. The first computer that was actually mine used Windows 95, so I must have been 14-15 years old. I know it was faster then my parent’s 486, but I’ve forgotten what it was exactly.
  3. When and how did you first get on the internet? – Probably when I first got one of those free dial-up internet trial discs. I mainly remember that lovely modem sound and that you needed lots and lots of patience.
  4. Which geek fandom do you subscribe to? – To none really. It’s not that I don’t like Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, etc. I do actually. But I’m not obsessed enough about it to be truly part of any fandom.
  5. Star Trek or Star Wars? – Star Trek, because that’s what I remember watching while growing up. I only saw the old Star Wars movies when I was about 20 years old, so it doesn’t feel quite as nostalgic.
  6. How Geeky Are You? – I took the test and got 39%. My husband also took the test and got 93%. What can I say? Apparently we complement each other.

Ariel “Kiss the Girl”

… Week 2 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Ariel “Kiss the Girl”

Finally managed to get this look together. I struggled with this one bit and not just because I wasn’t feeling inspired.

While I was struggling with my case of SL-crashitus, it was time to renew my premium account. And I decided not to and just keep a free account. Ofcourse, along with that, I also had to gave up my piece of mainland. I love the fact that I don’t have to feel bad anymore for not being inworld. Because I seriously felt like I was wasting money. Now I can spend that guilt-free on pixel shoes!

But suddenly not having a spot to rezz stuff and stand on a posestand in your birthday suit, is something I definitely need to get used to. For the first time in years, I’m a regular visitor to the sandbox again! Hmm… nostalgia…

Peter Pan

… Week 1 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Peter Pan

Since I started this blog, I’ve done quite a few blogger challenges. But after the Color Challenge came to an end, it took me a while to find a challenge that appealed to me. I was a bit iffy about the DisneyBound Challenge at first, because I’m not a big Disney fan. But then I remembered just how much fun I had had making my Disney princesses-gone-hipsters look. So I went with it anyway.

Well, I was planning to go with it, before I went on my forced SL-hiatus. At the moment I’m already 3 months behind, so I’m not even going to try and catch up. I’ll just be posting these if and when I feel like it.

  • Hair with hood – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyeliner – Kyoot (saeya.nyanda)

Ivory and Brown

… a Look of the Day.

Ivory and Brown

Just a quick LOTD to show everyone I’m still alive! Not very alive, but a bit anyway. Because this week I was once again coughing and sneezing and all that loveliness. I don’t know what bugs are floating around this winter, but they are kicking my ass!

But on to what I’m wearing:

Well, when I put together this look, and did the snapshots, most of it was new. But that was a while ago. So just consider this to be one of those looks made from random stuff in my inventory. That at least is true…
