Let me tell you…

Last night I spent some time in SL visiting different places.

This picture is on my sim so not one of the places I visited.

Talking to friends about relationships and such things as I travelled.

One common thread we all can agree on that we have experienced in this virtual way of life, is how hard we fall when we fall.

Online relationships are a beautiful thing in my opinion. The ability to get to really know someone before you may meet gives you something extra that maybe a meeting in a bar in RL wouldn’t.

Human beings are often very guarded creatures and we always hold something back, rightly or wrongly. But in a virtual world we often allow ourselves to really let go. Basically opening our core.

But… now here it comes.

When the relationship goes wrong, the impact that can have on you is immense.

You are like in a vacuum and that other person is the hose out. Or so you believe at the time.

I’ve experienced this, the total adoration of someone I don’t know, yet know. The hours of talking, the sharing of ideas both RL and virtually. Then the crash.

That crash feels more intense than anything you have ever experienced, the pain ten times more than that last RL relationship.

But why?

From my view I believe it’s because you mingle a reality and a fantasy together and it’s hard to destroy any fantasy. After all in life we hold on to our fantasies to see us through our difficult times.

But when our fantasy is devastated the impact it has on our real life person is often quite intense and devastating for some.

Remember that behind every avatar is a human being. A person with vulnerabilities, issues, feelings and RL.

Be kind and treat that person with the respect they deserve.

Leave your negative RL at the door and enjoy the fantasy.

But if you go to reality, do so with care and the knowledge that what you say and do can indeed impact that person.

Enjoy your day.

Coffee time or sleep ?

So I couldn’t shut up for today’s cuppa. You may need 3 cups, a pillow and a blanket.

I mention a firestorm issue which I’ve fixed but below is also a link to the error. Seems having McAfee virus scan software completely rejects the firestorm software since my most recent update, and for a lot of other folk this may be the same.

So I solved it the problem after much angst.

I deleted firestorm and McAfee, and then reinstalled firestorm and a new anti virus software. Voila fixed.

So reconsider purchasing McAfee till they sort this issue out.

The link to the Firestorm issue where you cant launch Firestorm and you get error 0xc0000020  and you run  McAfee is right  Here

She sees you

 

DJust received a message from a young man checking I was ok.

This morning a fire broke out near me in a block of flats that are the replica to mine.

You know the type, clad with that nouveau American aqua cladding and looking all pretty. Well it burnt well by the looks of the footage.

No one was hurt thank god.

But this young man, a old friend of mines son who I watched grow up took the time to check I was ok.

Really touched my heart this overcast morning in Southern England.

There are so many good people around, you just have to see them. 😊

Now don’t ask me what was my idea behind this video. I just had some Halloween on my mind……….

Severed knuckles

So I set this pose on the table out in the rain and was all pleased with myself.

Rain pouring on my head but not a hair out of place.

Decidedly I amputated my fingers from the knuckles and took it well.

Note to self, when in doubt, hover!

It’s Friday today and as per usual I’m looking forward to attending work, only because in some hours it’s over with for the week.

I have a few plans for the weekend once 4pm hits.

The first is straight to my friends after work for a bite to eat and a good catch up.

She has not long had hip surgery and been left a little housebound the past few weeks.

She is up and walking but can’t drive her car at the moment, so a little limited on where she goes.

Tomorrow I have Mason most of the day as I’m on daytime babysitting duty.

To be honest it’s never a duty, let’s call it a play date.

Sunday I’m being eyelashed!

Yep those extension things that people get. My daughter does them when not with child and needs a model for her web page.

So, I shall be it.

I may share the outcome on Monday and you can go oooo aaaa lashes!

Hope you all wherever you are in this big wide world, have a truly great Friday and time spent with the people you care about over the weekend. Failing that, before a boozy night out I highly recommend plenty of water.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Undies Raindale and eyes

So I have a little person here today and seriously couldn’t show him the undies.

Instead we visited Sansar and I let him click around and do all sorts.

Suffice to say, lucky no one was around as he popped on the mic and was warbling away before I realised. Clearly anyone listening would have thought Isabelle is on the booze!

Every day I visit both worlds and find such exciting new things in each. I will bring you Sansar later, but for now let me just say UNDIES, FURNITURE and EYES!!!

Every single day in SL there is some amazing new designs in just about everything you can think of. I love how SL has morphed into such a liveable world, compared to when I first came into it many years ago. Many I tell you!

I’m so much older than I thought.

My friend came over the other night for a Chinese and she said to me “Liz is this the world you and I visited in 2003 and everyone was on the beach?”

OMG she was right, I had been into SL a lot longer ago than I had realised. I’m actually in reality  as old as SL is .

I am 14 years old.

I never stayed though, as I was too interested at the time in running around after my children who were causing havoc all over the house, and finding the cats!

The cats back then were Tricky and Jessie.

So anyhow back to today and this video…..

Presents from who?

Last night I got home from work and found the most god almighty present from one of my cats on my pillow.

You’re thinking mouse, bird or some other creature aren’t you?

Well bearing in mind my cats are solely indoor Ragdoll cats, other creatures are very unlikely, apart from the odd insect that braves it’s chances.

No, I came home to an entire contents of a fur ball bonanza vomit on my pillow.

I guess I should feel grateful it wasn’t the carpet, which is cream and a cow to clean.

Still, I felt somewhat violated in that moment as I held both Tippi’s and Bondi’s gaze, asking which one did it.

It appears neither are willing to admit it and I’m left pending a cat investigation as to who decided to furball vomit where I lay my head.

Investigation ongoing, all suspects have been questioned, but have denied the accusation…..
