Dressing my dolly

Dressing my dolly

I had a crazy thought when I popped out to see the GP that I could go and do a bit of shopping whilst I’m at it.

Truth be told that’s where I left that thought.

Sitting in the crazy pile.

Upon reflection no money to burn and reality is I didn’t need anything

But the idea of getting dressed up was I think the main idea. Did I get dressed up?

Well if you call leggings, sweater, sneakers and a rain jacket dressed up, then we are good!

In reality apart from work or a night out (a rare event nowdays), I’m pretty laid back and can always be found in track pants or in summer shorts.

I am a very low maintenance woman and have been most of my life. Apart from the hair.

The hair spends time usually being cared for and the face moisturised. But clothing I love to feel relaxed and not overly stuffed with pleats here and there or faffy necklines etc.

I’m not sure I was put on this planet to squeeze into blancmange outfits.

In fact I’m sure I was put here to feel comfortable in my own skin.

In pixel planet however, I totally enjoy the various dress ups. I am my own doll.

Philip Rosedale and his imagination

Philip Rosedale and his imagination

I woke up, looked out the window, went back to sleep!!!

Ten minutes later realised it wasn’t the weekend. Leapt out of bed in slow motion like a spritely ninja.

Ok so I exaggerate somewhat. Make that a awkward bumbling relative of the ninja.

I have a fantastical imagination which frankly if I didn’t have I’d find life rather meh at times.

To me imagination is what drives us in life to look for different and new things. Without imagination, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Minus the bad stuff in the world. All the good stuff came about because someone dared to think outside their mundane daily box thoughts and create something that people couldn’t see.

If Philip Rosedale hadn’t the imagination at the time he did, the platform as we know it of Second Life would not be where it is today. Can I just add isn’t he a hot dude!!!! I mean seriously handsome. Just saying.

That imagination and belief he had went on to create this amazing virtual platform we have now.

But it doesn’t stop there, it goes on to evolve and become even more amazing on a daily basis as Ebbe Altberg the CEO carries on the work to take our virtual worlds further.

Many people forget how amazing it is and like anything become so used to it being “normal” that they forget that it was literally a 16 year old teenager in time away, when it didn’t exist.

Imagination, what a damned wonderful thing it is to have. Never stop dreaming and never let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.

The baby feet

The baby feet

I love lazy Sundays.

Today has been the ultimate lazy one. I’ve watched films lazing on my sofa with the cat and pampered myself to a baby foot peel.

Have you ever done one of those?

Seriously it’s the most disgusting yet satisfying outcome experience ever.

You soak your feet in the plastic socks with the peel mixture inside. Rinse and then about a week later your feet do the most grossest thing ever. They start to peel.

When I mean peel, I mean huge sheets of skin.

At the end of it, you are left with baby skin feet that look like they have never seen hard concrete and heavy walking.

Below the credits I’ll link you to an example. Try not to hurl.

But lucky in a virtual world our feet remain always soft as a baby’s skin.

Redbull gives you wings

Redbull gives you wings

Today I need a few cans of this stuff to get motivated.

It’s amazing how a person (me) can have days of bounce and upbeat then suddenly it’s gone like a flash. Suddenly everything hurts and energy is lost.

Nature of the Fibro beast for me. No I won’t be drinking the stuff in reality. Have you ever had two cans of this in a day?

Lord I end up on the porcelain throne for most of it, so nope I won’t be succumbing.

I do wish though the energy it gives you could be found in the bite of an apple.

Interesting news

Interesting news

I wanted to share some interesting news.

I belong to a few voice sites as a voice actor and frankly have never received requests through them and anything I have ever done has been through direct contact.

Over the weekend I was sent an invitation to audition for a radio advert.

So what you may say. Well here’s the irony they were looking for a specific Australian accent.

I am Australian yes, but live in the United Kingdom. I’m sure my Aussie accent has dissipated somewhat.

So basically the advert is to do with financial solutions. I am among 20 who were invited ( and no I haven’t heard yet).

Here is the irony in this tale.

It’s an Australian company!!

If I do get chosen, that would be incredibly ironic and of course exciting to me.

I must now do my nails.

Bite ones tongue or lock it

Bite ones tongue or lock it

This image conjures up to me what many people go through on a daily basis, some speak, but more often than not it’s a reflection of how inner selves are feeling with real life situations.

Or as the saying goes, biting ones tongue. Something I’m rarely guilty of as I tend to most times speak my mind, unless it will hurt someone’s feelings.

At that point I’m always hesitant and will lock my mouth till I  feel its safe to unlock. Usually not a good idea as it then all comes out wrong.

But then I am human.

Nothing to say

Nothing to say

Morning, I feel like Miss Marple checking out the local vegetation here. Undercover in my sunglasses looking like I blend in with the locals. Except today I decided to wear purple as that’s my favourite colour.

Actually in reality I am in my pink pyjamas about to enjoy some egg on toast and a hot cup of tea.

A stark reminder already that the weekend is nearly over and its back to work tomorrow. Again.

I really think weekends should be 4 days.

Organisations would get so much more out of me if they had me in less!

Finding your inner zen and peace

Finding your inner zen and peace

Finding your inner peace?

Yeah you read that correctly. I have decided to get all meditation like and see if that’s the path I want to explore.

Admittedly this downward dog idea may be a bit of a challenge to me as not sure how the the heck I get back up again?

I came to this conclusion after noting a few of my more calmer friends practice yoga on a very regular basis.

One meditates as well.

The other two do the yoga thing in order to feel cleansed after their regular consumption of all that is considered sinful. A bit like penance.

Mind you I purchased tai chi DVD’s and have considered if the downward dog and I don’t see eye to eye. Slow sweeping in my living room may just be the ticket.

New year and new attitude.

I want this in RL

I want this in RL

I’m on the bus as always, however running late for work. I’m usually there by now, but for some reason the alarm decided in its own foolish way not to go off and let me sleep!

We will be having words later and I’ve decided such mindfulness I will have to replace him.

His fate is now sealed and will be replaced  by a more reliable model.

So I’m on the bus and I seriously don’t enjoy the bus at this time of day as it’s full of hormonal schoolies.

By the time I get in I will require a bottle and straw and maybe a dark room to rock back and forth in the corner.

I’ve just seen a wotsit crisp go flying past…

The alternate night before Christmas

The alternate night before Christmas

Yes I’m trying to be all festive but I’m not feeling it right now.

Not in RL anyhow.

I don’t know if it’s because as we get older those Xmas fantasies we had as a child are lost. 

As an adult you know that Father Christmas isn’t real and that the reindeer  can’t fly in the sky?

Or that the elves don’t work in a little toy factory making presents for the good children.

But can I say that Elf is real!!!

You know, right?
