The times are changing

DDD-Jian 006

I am doing a second post today as I wanted to show a couple of items that are available today only for 25 lindens for 25L Tuesday.   This is a mostly role-play/fantasy/gorean list of content creators who participate.  Though I often find individual pieces or decor items that I can mix in with my own style of dress or decor.

Today for 25L Tuesday two creators that I blog for are participating.  The first is Dysfunctional Designs who has the simple wooden cabinet.  It has a land impact of 2, and has six texture choices for the wood.  I opted to use it outside in this picture, but its uses are many.  Anything your imagination comes up with. I’m also showing the simple metal fence that came out previously, except I was not able to blog it then.  It is available at the main store.  It has several choices for changing the metal.

The other item that I am featuring is the cobblestone path from Jian, also available today for 25L Tuesday.  The path can be changed for the season by simple HUD, and there are 3 rock textures.  The other thing that I like about the path is the transparent ground option, so if you just want the stones.

I picked up another bargain today for 25 lindens.  That’s the wooden ironing board at Hello Tuesday.

This will be a quick post as I didn’t anticipate doing a blog post here today.  I posted earlier under my fantasy blog where I play dress up in fantasy role-play costumes, because it’s just a fun thing to do.  You can find the link on the side top corner of the home page of this blog.  Except Jian sent me this item for 25L Tuesday and I couldn’t pass up showing it as it’s a fantastic bargain for 25 lindens.   It’s a great home decor item that has 7 wood texture options, animated water and gosh only 2 land impact.

It’s available at the main store and still enough time for you to grab it.

Shoes can set you on the right path.

21Shoe 037

It’s almost that time again ladies where you can grab some fabulous shoes for the price of one.   The 21Shoe event is every month on the 21st and only for 24 hours can you buy two pairs of exclusive shoes from some of the established shoe creators in Second Life.  I’m showing two pairs from different designers that are participating this month.  The first picture are the pumps from G&D that are made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, the Slink high feet and The Mesh Project body.

21Shoe 007

This second pair denim heels is made by KC Couture and has been made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, Slink high feet and the Belleza mesh body.  If you want to see the other shoes for this month, check out the 21Shoe  website where the pictures of the shoes are being added daily.   If you want to stay informed about the event and get some great gifts as well, there is a group in-world you can join for a small fee.  This month’s gift is 12 exclusive fashion poses courtesy of Thirty Loop Animations.

The last thing I want to mention is this brick path set by Jian that she is releasing tomorrow for 25L Tuesday. Seriously, that’s a steal!   The brick path is low impact, and has 26 pieces and 12 texture options that can be changed either piece by piece or to all paths of this set by one click.   After tomorrow the price will go up, so make sure you grab it.

Temporal state of mind.

“I wanted to write down exactly what I felt, but somehow
the paper stayed empty and I could have not described it any better.”
~ wtm ~


I’m not totally empty.  There is still a bit of common sense left in me, even if I am more than slightly cranky today and hitting a stage of becoming numb to certain situations.  Several days of sleepless nights can be partly to blame.  Of course it would happen that I can’t fall sleep until about 5:30 a.m. the next morning on the day that I need to be at my optimum level to function for an important meeting.  I can’t even say the meeting itself is what kept me awake.  It annoys me further just to think about that too.  I will just count myself lucky that I wasn’t yawning during any part of it even if parts of it were cause enough to yawn.
Thanks to the complete stranger who kept me company by initiating a game of words with friends.   I haven’t played that in ages, and never with a total stranger.  Though the ding for a match couldn’t have come at a better time.
Happy Wednesday!

The train ride.

“Life is like a train ride. We get on. We ride. We get off. We get back on and ride some more. There are some accidents and there are delays.  At certain stops there are surprises.  Some of these will translate into great moments of joy, some will result in profound sorrow…”

I was cleaning out my folder of web sites I have saved when I came across the “Pixie Train Ride,” a comforting and inspirational piece about life’s journey and the significance of the people that we may meet along the way.   I thought that it was nice to share and that’s how my picture came to be. From the looks of it I was on the right train.

Pumpkin Patch

“Things fall apart so better things can fall together.” ~ Marilyn Monroe “

Pumpkin Patch

The last few weeks have been a little up and down for me and a large part is my own fault for allowing circumstances beyond my control to negatively get the better of me.  Though over the weekend I had a bit of an epiphany and accepted the circumstances in the best way possible by making a choice to let nature take its own course.   My seventy plus year old grandmother often reminds me that sometimes you have to let one door close to allow another to open.  Since she’s still kicking up a storm I guess she knows what she’s saying.

Feeling a bit of the tension now leaving me I found myself wanting to bring out little me, because she makes me laugh at myself.  I picked up these pumpkins during a 25L Tuesday, which I might add this list is mostly role-play items.  I have always loved the idea of a pumpkin patch and unfortunately here in my part of the world you only find them in the yard of a few churches who decide to sell pumpkins to raise funds.  Just not the same thing and it’s a good thing I’m in Second Life, because I’m definitely not wearing mommy clothes for such a place.

Ever have those moments when you feel like an idiot?  Today I tripped over a box full of reports that was near my desk and the fall wasn’t a soft one.  I was in the outer office grabbing my mail from my inbox and there were several large envelopes that obscured my vision when I walked back in to my office to go to my desk.  Having dressed up a little more formal for a board meeting that afternoon with 2.5 inch heels — it didn’t help in breaking my fall.  I landed hard on my right knee that is now bruised and swollen.  My left shoulder hit the credenza that also sports a bruise and is swollen.  My mouth hit the floor and I’m just thankful that besides a slight tinge of feeling I don’t have busted lips on top of the rest.


After the impact I tried to raise up and had no strength in my limbs to rise.  I managed to turn around and sit on my arse until I felt somewhat resourceful again to rise up towards my chair.   I could have called someone obviously, the phone was just a couple feet away.  Though, I felt like such an idiot falling that I just waited it out and luckily no one walked in to see me sitting on the floor.

So that was my crazy day.  I took these pictures last night and you could say my luck wasn’t holding out then either – with hitting a mild on my sexual appeal.
