Birthday giveaway

Birthday giveaway

I figured I’d do the whole giveaway with a bit more fun than usual and so my character Thelma is doing it.

Yes it’s my real life birthday today. Not really much to celebrate given I cannot see anyone to have a cuppa and slice of cake with.

So my virtual can celebrate old age and still look as fresh as the day she was born. Other than the giveaway I’m just sliding through this day in reality as quiet as I can be.

SECOND LIFE - FAMILY

Aunty Vag

Aunty Vag

I won’t lie. My favourite character to be was always Harriet Parker. But these days Aunty VaGina is it.

Number one the actual avatar is just adorable but character behind avatar is what sells me. Even though that’s almost like saying I simply love me.

Then again, what’s wrong with that?

Today though I’m out of love with me because me woke up today and somehow pulled my neck during the night.

So now as the day goes on I feel like I’m already in a neck brace unable to turn properly. I’ve taken medication and lord all it has done is made me feel out of it.

Moral of the story? There isn’t any, I’m just whining and making you all aware that reality is currently being disproportionately unkind to me.

By the way Happy Aussie Day. Remember who was there first in your celebrations.

Did I just?

Did I just?

I got married.

Rather I may considered to be. I’m totally into my phone these days. The current love of my life other than my family.

It speaks to me via a male Aussie Siri and I can find whatever I want on it. I check it for shopping, I check it for news. I communicate with friends and family on it and even play the odd game on it.

Seriously have you ever considered how attached you are to your phone? I certainly have and it’s actually quite worrying how this gadget has slowly taken over our lives.

I’m currently considering what we would do without it.

Let me tell you. Chaos!!!

I remember some years ago when it snowed so badly it affected the networks etc and my little gadget was rendered useless. I was stranded in town unable to let anyone know where I was. Just stuck. 5 hours wandering around a shopping centre because I couldn’t walk home in my work heels.

Let me tell you. We rely way too much in tech and really need to at times switch off and learn the old fashioned things. You know, walking places and talking?

Sadly though in our current climate our tech is doing two things. Keeping us in communication with people we cannot see but also enslaving us.

So I decided it’s a bit like a marriage. Addictive and satiating but also at times confrontational.

It’s irrelevant

It’s irrelevant

It’s late afternoon and I spent hours watching Walking Dead last night.

Actually come to think of it I did a few things last night.

Played Among us with Yorkie and Davo. Laughed like the twit I am because frankly I got to be the impostor twice and no one knew. Mwahahaha.

Watched Songbird Covid 23 which seriously was the worst film I have seen in forever! Demi Moore appeared in it and frankly even that isn’t a selling point.

I find it in a bit of poor taste that people are trying to cash in on the Covid, via a Hollywood B style movie at the moment. But then when it comes to money people really have no scruples.

Mind you that’s the same way I feel about social influencers who really think we average people need to see them jetting where they like and on holidays! Seriously many influencers couldn’t be less relevant if they tried harder.

I couldn’t care if the new lipstick they’re wearing is gorgeous or not. Not relevant. Not could I care if they think they look hot in their bikini draped by the pool. Irrelevant. What they eat or how they pamper themselves. Irrelevant.

It’s irrelevant because us mere mortals are living in the real world and struggling along with what’s going on around us.

The one thing I do take away from this era in our lives, is that I know I’d rather see average usual normal people on my social feeds.

They’re far more interesting and more relevant. I can easily keep going in about this, but…..

Irrelevant!!!

Digital Art

Digital Art

I think we can often overlook how beautiful art can be. It’s easy to do so because there is so much that surrounds us.

I often stop and look and just appreciate what I see and just think wow! Digital Art in Second Life is one such part of creation that I look at and each time think wow.

I appreciate the time and creative thought that the person behind these works must take to bring these ideas into our virtual world.

Any form of artistic creation makes our world a vibrant backdrop. Enjoy…..

Pick up a phone

Pick up a phone

Another weekend escapes me and tomorrow it’s back to the same old routine. Roll out of bed, breakfast and work. On and on and on.

No seeing anyone apart from the housemate and wondering when my life can pick up again.

I had a lovely video call with my grandson Mason today and it made my day. The sad thing about the call after I said how much I missed him he said “Grandma you’re not in our social bubble so I can’t hug you”.

It cut me inside because no child should grow up seeing life in this way.

It’s January 2021 and it’s been nearly 11 months that we have been living this surreal life.

One thing during this period is I have learnt about friendships and who is really there when we need them. You know, people who you can count on to listen to you and just talk.

I’ve learnt who are not genuine and the selfishness of some I had never noticed before. Ive never been more alone than I am right now and yet at the end of a phone, there’s the path to feeling not alone.

Tangible but not within reach. But still there.

Pick up a phone and ring someone. You just may make them feel less alone.
