Not Plain Jane

… because Jane is back.

Being only a part-time resident of Second Life has both good and bad results. Good result is that I get a lot more done in RL. Bad result is that most of my group notices get eaten and I have no clue what the current events in SL are.

That’s why I only now found out that Janie Marlowe has reopened her store Jane.

I’m a long time fan of this store. I was already shopping there before it was called Jane. And it was where I bought my first ever rigged-mesh garment.

*sigh* Nostalgia…

New Year Meme

… for Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme.

New Year Meme

And my blog has finally made it into the new year as well. Happy (belated) 2014 everyone!

I made this particular look while cleaning out my inventory. It is a pigsty in there and probably does take up two servers…

  1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve? As always, we spend Christmas at my hubby’s parents and New Year’s Eve at my parents. Easiest way of seeing all the family and not having either side feel left-out. Both occasions usually contain a lot of food and drink!
  2. Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? In RL I never bother. As soon as make them I forget about them. In SL: finally cleaning that inventory!
  3. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? I know it’s more luck then achievement, but I’m happy that the people I care about were happy and healthy this year. Me included.
  4. What was the best thing you bought? We finally got a clothes-dryer in RL! I’m so happy to not have to drape the bedding over the living room furniture to dry anymore.
    And yes, I’m easily pleased…
  5. What do you wish you’d done more of? Just enjoying the small things in life I think. Between chores and other obligations, that’s an easy thing to forget to do sometimes.
  6. What do you wish you’d done less of? In short: procrastinating. Very bad habit of mine that I really really need to do less of.
  7. What was your favorite movie you watched this year? Uhm, I hardly ever watch movies. So if I did watch a good one this year, I probably forgot!
  8. What did you do on your birthday this year? Considering it was a week-day, not much. Hubby cooked for me though 🙂
  9. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. Not to worry so much. Some of the things I worried about this year, really weren’t worth worrying about.
  10. What does 2014 hold for you? There are no big events planned, so as far as “happy and healthy” goes, I’m just hoping for more of the same.

Aladdin and Jasmine

… Week 8 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Aladdin and Jasmine

The December holidays are always a bad blogging period for me. I’m either not at home, or I’m too stuffed with food to move. This year was no exception.

I did get a few things done in Second Life though. I sorted my inventory a bit, reworked me shape (if only it was so easy in RL) and did my DisneyBounding looks. This week it’s 2 for the price of 1: Jasmine and Aladdin.

Jasmine was easy to do, but I still don’t like my Aladdin-look. Which artist at the Disney studios decided to put both red and purple in his outfit? It still makes my eyes hurt…

Kuzco

… Week 7 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Kuzco

This time my look is inspired by Kuzco. And I really disliked his outfit.

I never tried to exactly copy the character’s outfits, but even I will admit this one can only be called loosely inspired by.

Dust and Memes

… *runs a finger throught the layer of dust covering the blog*

O dear, this rather embarrassing…

Dust and Memes

So yes, I’ve been away from Second Life for while. No big dramatic reasons, just needed a bit of a break.

Only after reading Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme post, did I realise that I had apparently missed the latest Linden Lab disaster. Is it a bad sign that I’m not really surprised?

Anyway, time to answer Berry’s questions about the new TOS:

  1. Do you usually read the TOS thoroughly before you hit accept? I know that I should, but no. I never read it. I always want to get on with it and just click accept.
  2. How do you feel about the new LL TOS changes, specially from August 15th and section 2.3. I’m amazed at how, well… stupid LL can be a times. No matter how these changes were meant, could they really not see this would anger a lot of their customers? And that that is a very bad thing? They should try to keep residents happy, not give them more reasons to leave.
  3. Do the changes affect you directly? I haven’t been a content-creator in very long time and I never made an income of SL anyway. So I don’t think it affects me directly. However, if creators decide to leave because of this, it will affect me. Because, without new content to play with, people will become bored and leave. Me included.
  4. What do you think people should do about this new change? I guess what people should do is all leave SL in protest. But realistically, I know that isn’t going happen. I think it will be a good idea to keep an eye on what LL does next. And explore some of the other virtual-world-options out there, just in case.
  5. Are you or have you ever thought about leaving Second Life? What would you do with your time/blogs/career if you ever did? Heh, just coming back from a SL hiatus, that’s a funny question. I regularly step away from Second Life for a while, but I don’t think I will ever completely leave. And what I would do with my time if I ever did? No idea… bake a cake?

Monday Meme on Sunday

… for the SL Movie Poster Challenge.

Monday Meme on Sunday

For a number of weeks now, Strawberry Singh has been providing us with blog memes. But this was the first one that got my creative juices flowing. The challenge was to create a movie poster for your SL Avatar or SLife. Based on either an original movie poster or a completely new idea of your own.

After thinking about it for a long time, I decided to go with a neko version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I don’t have any particular love for that film, I just wanted to go with a classic. And there is a cat on the original poster, that too.

Just a quick note about the credits: all the items I’m wearing have been edited inworld and/or post-processed. I usually try to give an honest representation of things, but this time I threw that right out of the window!

  • Hair – D!va (marisa.kira)
  • Skin – League (nena.janus)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)

  • Dress – Boom (aranel.ah)
  • Undershirt – Jane (janie.marlowe)
  • Gloves – G-Field (cerberus.noel)
  • Shoes – Slink (siddean.munro)
  • Necklace – League (nena.janus)
  • Pose – Vista (vista.barnes)

Sweater Cat

… a Look of the Day.

Sweater Cat

Lately I’ve been spending a lot less time inworld. This has happened before in the almost 6 years I’ve been in Second Life now. There are months where I spend loads of time online and months where I log in… and log out again. Right now, I log in, feed my (greatly reduced in numbre btw) herd of cats, read notices… and log out. Or SL logs me out, that happens a lot too.

Basically, what I’m saying, is that the blog might be a bit more quiet from now on. I’ll be around though. I’m still enjoying SL and blogging too much to say goodbye to it completely!

On to what I’m wearing. Well… it’s a sweater with a cat on it. I couldn’t resist. I apologize.

You might also be wondering why my tail is wrapped around my leg (probably not, but I’ll explain anyway). It’s a new rigged-mesh tail I bought at the SL Marketplace. It looks a bit weird when you’re simply walking around, but for pictures I do think it works. Especially because in the pose I was using here, my normal tail disappeared into the wall.

The tail comes in a black and a white version and it’s mod, so you can tint it. Which is exactly what I did.
