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!

On the beach

On the beach is where I want to be right now.

It’s 8 degrees so my weather app tells me, will rise to 17 later. Maybe!

Actually it’s a gorgeous morning here in sunny south east UK and I do love it when it’s cool and crisp.

However, I still crave the beach and lazing in the sun.

I’m not sure I want to give up summer just yet.

Mind you in the virtual world you can live whichever season you want, so I’ll take my comfort in that and enjoy my days at the beach while we slowly head into Autumn. Mind you with Autumn, comes Halloween!!!!

Now the outfit….

The melody of life

I’m on the bus headed to work. Funnily I see sun peeking out which I really didn’t expect.

After the weather report yesterday I went home and battened down the hatches for the 60 mile per hour winds (nothing compared to Irma, nothing at all).

Battening down the hatches is simply folding up the chairs on my balcony and putting the pot plants against the wall. Pot as in potted, not “the herb”.

Oh and closing the windows.

So this morning I expected high winds . Squally rain. Yeah no nothing like that.

So in perspective we hype over nothing at times, absolutely nothing.

But then to be fair I don’t live in an area likely to flood easily which some parts of the UK are prone to in a storm.

So I’m sat on the bus thinking, how bloody lucky we are and about the people who actually have lost their homes and businesses the other side of the world.

Note to self. Always be thankful.

Ooops they did it again

I love the name of the store. Oops!

Even more so because it makes me think of Britney Spears.

Yes I am a silent fan of hers ever since “Baby one more time”.

Call her my very guilty pleasure. So guilty that not even my kids know!

You see being a trance/dance fan, liking Britney is like eating a lemon and admitting you prefer it with sugar.

My children grew up with their mother totally into INXS, Guns and Roses and Audio Slave and a dance music nut.

I think I’m pretty typical of parents in the 90’s.

We grow older but still can really appreciate good dance music. Hence I progressed into making some of my own.

Which I need to start sharing again soon as I’ve been working on some bits.

Anyhow I digress which I often do.

The outfit…….
