The real from the virtual

The real from the virtual

March 7th!

I’m off to Toulouse France for a wedding happening on the 9th.. A little bit excited here. Ok a lot excited here.

Two good friends from Second Life and real life are tying the knot after being together for 7 years.

You see all the negativity that virtual worlds brings because of misinformed trolls, out steps the wonderful real life stories

Stories of everyday people who find love where they least expect it.

I am a romantic at heart and their story has melted my heart.

Maybe I’ll share it with you around the time. But for now I’m a little bit peeing myself and clapping like a penguin.

As Sunday ends

As Sunday ends

I do wish I could create a real life Ground Hog day.

I love winter late afternoon/evenings where I can snuggle on the sofa with a hot drink and watch a mushy film.

That’s me right now for the next few hours.

My technology world is on a timer these days.

I try and spend a better part of my time indulging in just relaxation without conversation and just being a little more selfish than usual.

One of my issues of late is that people do get offended if I don’t log in and want to chat or hang out.

I’ve discussed this in a few Coffee with Isa’s about my love of alone time.

My virtual lifestyle has always been a solitary one because it’s my way to unwind and relax. I try and avoid the drama of issues because that is my preference.

If I’m wanting to talk I tend to send that reach out. It’s often my way. Many of my close friends understand this. They can drop by my home anytime.

I don’t hang in cliques and I don’t frequent anywhere on a regular basis. I love to explore and go finding new places often.

If I’m on auto response it’s because I’m either filming or in midst of a photo moment. NOT because it’s an excuse to not speak to anyone.

Yes someone has alluded to that ridiculousness this weekend. Well the world revolves on the axis we choose. Mine is about why I use SL and that is pure selfish want to be doing what I want, when I want.

I’m never intentionally rude and if not pushed for time happy to chat.

Lately I’m doing a lot of filming work and that’s because Thelma is due to come back…..

Ready for action

Ready for action

This is me today. Ready for action!

I have a lot on my plate today and I’m not referring to my dinner.

I speak often about the role of a union rep and the added work that involves. Today is no exception. Quite a few meetings and some problem solving to do.

The thing is at the same time I am still expected to accomplish the day job. After all that is what I’m paid for.

However when the statement at the end of the year comes in rating union reps in the workplace supervision’s , it’s always “achieved the required standard”.

Yes it is very much a thankless task and one that is a bit like career suicide. Oh hang on a LOT like career suicide.

Would I stop doing it?

No.

Why?

Because the ability to speak out for people who can’t find their voice is indeed the most powerful reward I get.

I also found my own voice.

Those Lies

Those Lies

There are lots of them that people tell.

White lies, pinkie lies, black lies.

But which is it that you tell?

We all lie. That’s a fact. We lie to get ourselves out of situations. We lie to protect someone’s feelings. We lie to avoid confrontation.

Some people just simply lie for that’s who they are, the perpetual liar.

It’s the degree of that lie.

What do you do when you find out someone has just lied to you?

The Royal wedding the prelude

The Royal wedding the prelude

The beach life

The beach life

Swimsuits at the ready?

No me neither. Not in reality anyhow.

In reality though I’m actually feeling pretty annoyed with myself that I’m not ready to be seen in a swim suit and frankly don’t like me myself right now.

For many of us on this planet it’s a constant struggle to meet the image of the Beach babe and for some an impossibility.

I think as I’m getting older the impossibility is becoming nigh.

Body parts are gravitating southwards and that plump youthful skin frankly is becoming a distant memory.

The reality is that we all age.

For the most part I’m accepting of this.

I accept the wrinkles and the gravitational pull. I accept that my body is starting to not let me do the things I used to do and that I am no longer Kylie. But what I don’t accept is that in order to go to the beach I still have to look palatable to the human eye.

There in lies my not being ready for this summer.

So although I reluctantly accept the changes I must go through. I don’t accept it happening all at once.

So first things first, the diet change.

What we put in certainly is what we put out. I’ll let you know how that goes.

But suffice to say in pixel planet I’m ready to hit the surf.

Another factor in anti beach. It’s raining cats and dogs where I am.

Rather the desert highway

Rather the desert highway

I’ve seen the news this morning.

That’s enough for me thank you very much.

It’s all rather doom and gloom, conspiracies, alcoholism, Russian intrigue, conspiracy theories etc etc.

Each day I wake up and wonder what’s next.

There is actually no need to watch a film when in actual fact what we have on our news screens ticks all the boxes of the emotions you would feel watching some thriller.

Just one morning I’d love to wake up to no news.

The earth have one day where there was nothing to report and all is good.

The dream we all aspire to but a dream none the less.

I’m making today a no news day.

Coffee in the sun

Coffee in the sun

The sun only shone in pretend land because we had more snow and icy conditions in the real world.

I know, this time around I wasn’t as excited about it as I was 2 weeks ago.

So as I’m standing here at this bus stop I am wishing for spring to arrive. My fingers are like frozen sausages and they really need a defrost.

Now another Coffee with Isa, it’s a long one because I ramble a lot.

Protest – Boo to YOU TUBE

Protest – Boo to YOU TUBE

Today good old You Tube takes away the Partner programme for many of the little channels. Myself being one of them. In many ways this has been an interesting 4 weeks since the announcement and made me look at other channels and my own as to quality etc. Look at some of the ridiculous behaviours of other you tubers and their manner in chasing for subs.

It’s been an enlightening experience to say the least.

In actual fact potentially it means more freedom of speech. Now there’s a interesting fact.

Even Harriet Parker is now loving this fact as she reports in the developments.

These protest signs by DRD are the certainly the most fun I’ve had in ages. Frankly something that has been lacking. So more silliness coming up in the protest video below.

Bore you to sleep ASMR apparently. Nah it’s just coffee

I have a day off today. It’s damn well raining!

Anyhow Coffee with Isa on the cards as always. Though depending on You Tubes changes. I’m not sure precisely what I will and will not still have after tomorrow they may in future be limited in length. Thank Christ I hear many of you say.

We will see. Anyhow have lots to say in today’s episode. Down below …..
