I forget things.

The Back Story.

I get things, as in spend actual Ls on them, and then forget I have them. Not only do I forget to blog about them, I forget to ever wear them around. A while ago, I picked up this “Vergara” dress at the Dressing Room, thinking I would put something together for the running style contest thing they have going. And then I forgot all about my grand competition ambitions as other things in my life popped up their little heads and yammered for attention.

One of these days I’ll get around to entering that contest.

Getting away from the noise in Kowloon.

The Back Story.

I decided to get away from it all in a far off land (far off to me, anyway). The shape drama on SL is getting craaaazy, peoples (see also Alicia Chenaux’s pithy “Stop it” piece). Am I sensing a ground swell of consumer revolt against the grump-face pony-rider shape? A final smack down before the demise of a fad?

Whatever it might be, remember folks, that these avatars we play around with are not our corporeal bodies. They aren’t even as materially substantive as a doll that you can hold in your hands, for that matter.

I just recalled an incident from when I was five years old. A neighbor boy made fun of the way one of my dollies looked, and I whacked him upside the head with a pointy metal thing. He had to get stitches. I got grounded. Over a damn doll.

Yeah. Dumb. But I was five and had skin about as thick as nanofilm.

The Back Story.

I’m having twitchy luck with the mesh goods. Sometimes I put one on, and everything about me but my objects disappears. I turn into a ghost dress with hair and eyeballs. So not attractive. But I didn’t have that problem with this sweet little early ’60’s number from Vinyl Cafe, their latest group gift.

The Back Story.

World’s End Garden still has this and other dresses out as gift items, I think. Not bad for no monies. I’m missing something at the Magic Flute installation (my location). Not something technical, mind you; I’m just not quite getting it. But I never claimed to have all that much Mozart knowledge, so there you are. Still, whether or not I ‘get’ it, it’s working as a photo location, and that’s just about all I ask of an SL sim these days.

The Back Story.

I picked up some dresses at World’s End Garden some weeks ago, and have been looking for an excuse. This location (The Magic Flute at Imparafacile) was the geographic muse I’d been waiting for.
