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!!!

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.

Lexy Panterra Twerk

When I knew this was coming, I have to say I fangirled big time.

This gal can dance!!! I mean seriously if I tried to move my butt cheeks like her, I’m sure I would pull my back right out and lose my left cheek to the abyss out there.

I believe this is the hugest and I mean hugest followed dancer Paragon Dance Animations have brought into Second Life.

I didn’t even have to explain to my real life friends who this lady was, they knew straight off the bat.

I’m excited to bright this to you. No gimmick no flashing Spielberg effects, just straight out let you see this dance.

Enjoy…..

Product Description
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Performance captured by Lexy Panterra, celebrity twerk instructor & social media twerk icon. Her unique mesmerizing moves shows that it’s not the size of the bounce, but the magic of the dribble

Paragon Facts:

In the USA, Twerking is a popular booty shaking style of dance that evolved from the New Orleans style of hip-hop known as “bounce” from the bounce music scene in the 1980s. The word “twerking” first appeared on record in the song “Do the Jubilee All” by DJ Jubilee in 1993, in which he chanted, “Twerk baby, twerk baby, twerk, twerk, twerk.

About Lexy Panterra

There’s always a story to tell

There’s always a story to tell

I’m sat here on my sofa after attending the Second Life Book club. Sadly I was there in spirit rather than hearing presence as my earphones are broken. The reason was my house mate was watching a film so it’s rude to sit there with the computer blasting away on loud speaker.

That’s ok as the great thing about the book club streams are you can listen to them later if you missed them at all. So there’s always a plus there if you look for it.

I’m considering my list of to do things now and I feel I have not enough hours in any one day to do all the things I want to do. That’s pretty much summing me up at the moment. A head full of ideas that need a mind map to plan them!

The best place to do it would be by the lake relaxing in a teepee hut with the water trickling away behind me as my head gathers and I write each thought down. Very much like my virtual image here.

I actually have a novel in my head. It’s been there for many years. The actual first sentence is the challenge because at what point do I begin.

That has been my dilemma for as long as I can remember, also the manner in which I write. That may require some work I’m all too aware.

The novel is to be about a girl who travels through life never knowing where she fits and where she is headed. It begins in childhood with a family background that is not usual. Not conforming and full of moments of fear and at the same time love.

One day I’ll begin. Just not yet. I’m not ready to tell that story till I know the ending.

I’ve just been watching Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Junior and Jude Law. Why haven’t I seen this before?

Great film and the sight of Robert Downey naked strapped to a bed with a lovely floral pillow for his modesty. Well that made the film!!!

I’ve never really been into Sherlock Holmes, mainly because I’m more a modernist type film buff. When I say modernist, I mean in terms of look and era. So maybe I change my mind now.

In other news Drax sent this following link to a few and I watched. Then I watched a second time.

It really is interesting and if you don’t mind subtitles it’s worth watching due to the subject. It does make you think. I say no more.
