Going to the Movies

… for Strawberry Singh’s Second Life Movie Poster Challenge 2016.

Going to the Movies

So many blogger challenges, so little time! But as I participated in the 2013 version of this challenge, I just knew I had to do this one.

I again decided to go with a classic, the 1972 musical film Cabaret. It’s shocking how relevant the message of this musical still is, even after all these years.

I didn’t attempt to do an exact copy of the original poster. Because there seem to have been a lot of different versions over the years. But hopefully my attempt does get the overall look right.

Flotsam and Jetsam

… Week 10 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

I should be renaming this blog to “The Lazy Blogger”! But let’s ignore the layer of dust covering this blog and move on to more interesting things.

While I’m not interested in blogging, and trying to keep up, with what is the latest and greatest in Second Life these days, I do still like dressing up my pixel-doll. So here is the next instalment of that Disneybound Challenge I started ages ago.

But because I’m very much like my half-cat avatar, I did the pictures last week… and then wandered off to investigate a particularly interesting-looking sunbeam…

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…

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

… for Strawberry Singh’s Monday 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.

Spotlight

… a Look of the Day.

Spotlight

I finally managed to visit Shoetopia. Shoooes as far as the eye can see…

Well, as far as my draw distance anyway.

The very first thing I bought, were Slink’s new high mesh feet. Made especially for shoes with a dangerously high heel. I absolutely love the Slink add-on shoe system, so getting these was a no-brainer.

And, of course, I had to get some matching footwear for them. The shoes I ended up buying, are pretty similar to a pair I own in RL. I lovingly refer to those as my “kamikaze shoes”. Because that’s what wearing them is usually like.

Hopefully the SL ones will not be quite as hazardous.

Kuzco
