I want to live my life, not record it.

I want to live my life, not record it.

I want to live my life, not record it.

That quote really does hold poignancy in todays world. Given everything we do we record. I would say we spend less time living and more time recording our lives.

This blogger challenge  was inspired by ReadMeri who decided for this challenge #5 to opt for the theme the Silver Screen. Here you can go look at her amazing post for Gone with the Wind.

Now I will be honest there are way to many for me to consider favourite as such. I pondered on Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Doris Day in Calamity Jane or Elizabeth Taylor.

But then there are also the strong iconic women of our time who have been portrayed on the silver screen and I thought to myself Natalie Portman who portrayed Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in the film Jackie.

This lady was and is still known as one of the most popular First Ladies. Not withstanding Michelle Obama.

If you haven’t seen Natalie’s fine performance in this film, I highly recommend it to you. Its the story of the days when she was First Lady and her life immediately after the assassination of her husband President John F Kennedy. Natalie Portman is outstanding in her portrayal of Jackie and totally owns that role.

I had fun trying to find hair for this challenge. Sixties and big, hell yes!

The outfit I was lucky to get from IM Collection aptly named the Jackie O. If that isn’t a sign, then what is.

Of course the sunglasses had to be thrown in .

The stand, well that’s attitude and strength.

If you want to join us in the blog challenge. Its simple. Just set a picture of your Silver screen Icon and then in the blog post explain the reason why. Dont forget to link back to this post and happy blogging.

Let’s just do a temperature check

Let’s just do a temperature check

Now I’m either having a hot flush or temperatures have hit balmy levels.

I’m guessing it’s the first because I’m the only one looking like a red melon right now.

Got to love ageing. There appears to be no part of it that is plain sailing.

Why is all I ask?

Or pop down the pier at Brighton and just jump in?

In my garden

In my garden

The best place for me is always in my garden nearby the ocean. That is how I grew up and is my ideal.

Reality though living here in the UK where I am based, is that the mission to get to the beach restricts that. However I do live on lakes and have a beautiful water view. I will show you that view. Photo below the credits of this blog.

Today, I am doing a GoToMeeting with someone from YouTube/Google. What it entails, I have absolutely no idea. Can I tell you about it? Nope, I had to sign a non disclosure for it. All I know is that it is for some study and Ill get something in return for it. SHOPPPING!!!

I was sent the invite, and I thought why not.

Strawberry Singh

Strawberry Singh

Strawberry Singh!!!

Have you heard the news?

Absolutely brilliant news as Strawberry is now an employee for Linden Lab. Marketing content specialist no less.

I said a while back in a video championing her they would do no better than to have that lovely lady on their team.

If anyone has given a positive front to this virtual world it is her.

There are so many bloggers and vloggers for Second Life but for me the only real one has only really been Strawberry.

No matter what she has always represented the community in a positive, authentic and encouraging way.

That is what a real ambassador does. So for Linden Lab to have taken her into their fold, says it all.

She is inspiring and such a decent kind person that truly deserves this after all her hard work and positivity she has brought into the community.

My jolly huge CONGRATULATIONS to Strawberry dare I say Singh-Linden?

You will be missed in your usual role, but I am sure bringing to the Linden team your great people skills.

The chill

The chill

Rather apt title considering I am on 3 days annual leave and the air decides to chill.

Here I was imagining lazing on the balcony collecting some vitamin D.

Instead I am inside the apartment with a little person considering if I should turn the heating back on.

Amazing how things turn out.

Still, little man and myself are lazing together on the sofa and I do foresee him nodding off to sleep oblivion very soon.

I may join him. What the hell. After all that’s chilling!

Happy V Day

Happy V Day

I have nothing to say.

It’s Valentines and it’s apparently the day of love.

I personally feel that every single day is the day you show someone how much you care.

So today I’m going to stroke a cat. Maybe two.

And of course won’t be able to go to work because my front door is full of cards stopping me.

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.

Over tall rusty cars in one leap

Over tall rusty cars in one leap

Do you ever wake up and think ” I wish I could just leap” as far away as possible?

Me right now.

Me this morning and no doubt Monday morning. Right now I’m excited it’s Friday and I can leap out the door and head on home.

It’s been a hard week.
