As I sit here on the bus with my brollie and long sleeves I’m reminded summer is nearly over.
I’m not ready to say goodbye just yet. I still have a whole lot of sunshine to absorb and blue skies to take in.
Winter in England although is beautiful at times is also quite depressing. The dark mornings and the dark nights mean you never really see the daylight until the half hour lunch break in the working day.
But that aside, it’s a great reason to go buy new clothes don’t you think?
In SL however you can have any season you want. So today, it’s a balmy summer for me in this gorgeous dress. Just don’t look out the window as the illusion suddenly shatters…….,.
Sunglasses are a free gift I found along my travels but because SL did not let me look at my inventory last night as it was soooooooo bad. I cant tell you till it fixes itself again. But suffice to say they are I believe called Top Gun.
The song track to this video is called The Phoenix. I produced it in 2015 and actually the making of it was for SL.
At the time Exodus Rock club had closed and suddenly my Saturday nights were no longer spent at the themed events and just enjoying filming and listening to the banter amongst folk. ( folk makes me sound old, but it’s my favourite word at the moment for people).
I really loved those Saturday nights and when you go back on the history of my SL you tube channel, Exodus features throughout.
When I joined SL in 2010 as my original avatar, it was Exodus I ended up calling my “local”.
Back then I was a noob with the statutory big boobs and bling earrings and certainly no pixel class. Slowly I learnt about good taste, less is more and about men with bad chat up lines and how to avoid them.
I developed the art of click and sit to animate, and how to build a box, colour it and make it look like a vase. A talent I soon realised wasn’t a talent but actually quite the basic skill you should have.
I’ve come a long way in my journey and been a number of avatars over the years. I’ve never hidden my alts and everyone knows they were always part of my cast when I created a new video.
I’ve had some truly bad experiences which have taught me to be less naive with people and some also fantastic experiences and people who have become my good friends.
Anyone living South East UK right now know what I’m meaning by the term Indian Summer.
We are sizzling this week and would usually by now be wearing jackets and preparing our winter wardrobes. In fact they reckon it’s the hottest September days for the last 100 years here. Now I’m not sure if that’s true or not because umm I haven’t lived 100 hundred years. But what the heck I’ll take the tabloids word for it this time.
Can’t say that I can even contemplate wool and tweed right now as I sit here in this bus perspiring like a sumo wrestler wrapped in cling film sitting in a sauna!
With all this moisture loss one would expect to have lost a few pounds and become svelte this past week. I’m disappointed to note this is not the case and I’m just the same as I was last Thursday. Dog dang it!
Alien Gizmo’s little summer Paige dress is what my real life needs right now. But still my virtual gal remains cool and enjoying the summer lazy days on the beach.
Well, they don’t really sing but if you listen to that buzz long enough, you would turn it into a song.
I do have bees though . I have a few bees on the balcony and have to now go and figure out the most full proof human way of asking them to move a little, so that I can go and sit out there and expose this body to some rays of sunshine. In turn they can do their pollination thing and we can live in harmony.
If they don’t move? Then I guess I live with it and take the risk that they may decide they don’t fancy a nip of my flesh today. But either way, I’m out there today.
Enjoy the video. I’m dancing to the rhythm of MOVE! Animations Cologne, Elena and Jay dances.
Music track is “Trance Awareness” by IsaB (that’s me)
Actually I find a lot more than seagulls on my doorstep.
I came home last night to a gang of geese. Yes a gang! They were mean dudes, hissing and raising their feathers at me. I live on lakes which is beautiful in itself and every day you hear and see the ducks and geese.
But, every now and then (actually a lot) they leave the water and venture into the estate part, wandering through people’s gardens.
On the whole that’s pretty wonderful. Mind you, have you seen the size of their poop?
Of course a video goes without saying as I tried out the MOVE! free gift of the Elena dance. I’m so excited because I have been accepted as one of their bloggers. Now dance videos are my niche and that works out perfectly given all the rubbish I have been through with SL of late. I received my first box of Elena to showcase last night. But this is a snippet of the dance and of the Roxy outfit.
It applies to people who only do what they need to but would never consider giving a little extra, being helpful or simply at times obstructive.
That term I apply without hesitance to my bus driver this morning.
The bus driver was stood outside of bus dragging on his cigarette. I’m having back pain, so politely ask him can I go sit on bus as 3 mins till it goes.
He tells me no, as it means his driving hours starts and he can’t have that!!!
Part of me was annoyed and the other had to laugh at his statement because we all knew he simply wanted to finish his cigarette. His driving hours started the moment he started work at the depot and turned the key in the ignition and drove the mile to get to my bus stop.
