All dressed up

So its Friday night and what am I doing? Writing this blog.

I just realised today in many ways I should be on some hot date somewhere, sipping wine and flirting like a floozy.

In actual fact I am in my living room and too shattered to even think about getting dressed up and stepping out the front door.

Frankly what a week!

So I share with you another moment in my playing dress up life which is something I do love to do and that is dress up and show you. Still though, wish I had a date.

Was I by the pool or in Sansar!!

Well last night I wasn’t by the pool. I was in Sansar.

Unfortunately as  much as I would love to show you my experience and the gorgeous photos and video footage I took, I can’t.

Part of the agreement in entering is that you  agree to not share the footage or photos on public platforms .

Which is fair enough at this stage and I’m thankful for the opportunity.

A lot of work still needs to be done on the actual avatar. Having already been inside High Fidelity the avatars remind me of those in High Fidelity. In the actual structural appearance.

But then this experience isn’t about pretty avatars and looking hot to trot.

This experience is about the amazing structural details in this world and the potential to create even more.

For me personally I’m highly impressed with what I am seeing. The level of detail and scale of builds is amazing.

At this moment machinima creating is not smooth as with a mouse and keyboard I was a little jerky to say the least.

You have an option to either voice or not voice. You have a chat feature as well and so communication is certainly I think key and I experienced as like High Fidelity the choice to voice was more key than walking around silent in a chat bubble. So interactivity I believe will be high in this world. 

I of course as a vlogger and machinima nut want to have some more control of the jerkiness of the camera movements, but then perhaps I need to learn a few more keyboard movements.

I will keep going in and learning and hopefully one day we can be given the green light to be able to share our initial experiences.

Now back to sl and my Vlog …… enjoy!

Summer daze

Today I won’t ramble about the things I can’t do as it then I’ll be guilty of whining or moaning or any other term we use when a record is stuck on one subject.

Suffice to say my right hand/arm is currently taking quite a hammering this past week making up for the useless left.

So instead I’m going to dwell on the good things.

The genuine SL and RL people who have either logged in to check on me or as one does in the real world phoned or visited.

This experience has taught me how I place at times value in the wrong people and overlook those that I shouldn’t.

After all it’s the people that arrive in your hours of need that are the genuine people.

I have so many friends on my RL and SL friends lists and yet in one hand the true value of those friendships become abundantly clear.

I think the superficiality of social media etc is so that people only step in and out at their leisure or whim.  But the real human side is the side we are all guilty of neglecting.

Which leads me to the fact that there are so many elderly or disabled people out there in worse circumstances than me and are completely alone.

I’m currently having a taste of what it’s like to need people.

I can’t even imagine how they must feel when they have no one they can turn to or rely on to do the simple things we all take for granted. Washing ourselves, going to the toilet, brushing your own hair, etc.

I think despite my own internal misery I’ve been feeling and still am to a degree, I realise how lucky I am really.

I know once my shoulder has healed, I’ll be back at work as normal, fetching cups of tea for visiting friends, picking up my grandson.

But, there are some that this is a permanent way of life.

My heart actually breaks knowing that.

You don’t understand someone’s plight till you have walked a few steps in their shoes. I’ve done a few shadow steps and frankly I’m totally grateful that this is a passing period. I hope it is at any rate.

I will be in August wearing  my summer outfit, heading to Toulouse on my summer week away in RL. Well I hope anyhow.

I do like that you can in SL get suitcases to match your clothes. Hmmmmm I wonder……..

Boobie squishing 

 

Literally save me from this pain!

Yesterday I went for my Boobie squishing (breast screening mammogram) like all the other women across the UK who have been called up recently for screening.

It’s not the most comfortable of procedures but on the whole it’s a little discomfort that could potentially save your life.

However for me who is having a fibro flare (I’m assuming it’s due to that) it’s proved incredibly painful since.

Both my arms and shoulders have been sore but my left arm is currently bordering that excruciating same pain I had a few months ago when my tendon had a pull. The only thing, it’s the opposite arm.

So not quite sure how it’s happened, I can only assume it’s the positions I was put in.

The one saving grace, this time it’s my left arm and I’m right handed!!

Suffice to say, just like previously, I’d like my arm off right now as it hurts so much.

Still I can still type with one hand and film.

Breast screening is such an important health check every woman should participate in when invited to. 

I highly recommend all women and men (yes men can get breast cancer) when invited to these screening you attend. No excuses!!!!

Undies or Tennis?

Well today I decided I was going to be a lazy blogger. Because, well because I can. Its Saturday and I fancied a little laziness.

So instead I did some RL bits around the home and then logged into the pixel planet and played with my land.

I have removed one of the pool houses completely and instead laid down a tennis court. I aptly name it Namaste Balls.

A fully interactive tennis court ready in time for our own SL Wimbledon.

In between mowing the law and building fences, I managed to pop to a secret hideaway and film this vlog and now show you these gorgeous undies.

The greatest 

One of my friends sims closes to the public in the next few days. It’s not gone for good as there will be folk residing there as a private homeland for a period of time.

La Vie is my favourite go to place in all of SL and has been since I first found it.

I do many of my videos there because frankly it’s beautiful and has a peaceful feel to it.

The owner Krys Vita is truly a lovely lady and someone I class as a friend now.

So I’m sure she will be having some new adventures in this world as we all do when we take a break  from our homelands and go exploring those of others.

SL is a whole melting pot of exciting talents and people with great imaginations who use those to create our wonderful escapes. 

So I recommend if people haven’t been, they take the opportunity before this week is over to visit La Vie

How I look so cool

The answer to this is….. virtually!!!

It’s a totally beautiful summers day in the real world. I’ve spent much of it in the sun on my balcony with a mini pool and playing.
Ok well the little person was playing and I suntanned. I wore most of the water he has as he watered the plants……and me!!

I figured two blog posts in one day. Why not.

So below another video, as well you know I do love to talk.
