Women of Afghanistan

In my last post I stumbled onto a great mesh bag by BoHo HoBo, which led me to the shop. I was very happy to check out some great Mesh tops by the designer Trill Zapatero. She has several venues dedicated to Afghanistan and helping those impoverished by the war. In fact, she told me her proceeds all go to RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, a human rights and social justice cause for women’s education, children’s services, as well as hospital and refugee centers.

The Trillia sim has art, clothing, and educational services talking about RAWA and what you can do to help this movement. I suggest you start by purchasing these great sweater tops I’ve photoed for this post. For more information or to get involved, I would contact Trill Zapatero. She’s wonderfully charming and eager for help spreading the word about RAWA.

Sophia Harlow’s Challenge

I remember when avatars were rated and it shown on the first page of your profile.
I remember the database crash of 2006 and lost nearly half of my inventory.
I remember when hair was transferable and demanded hair bases.
I remember when flex was released (the first thing my friends and I did was make a wobbly penis.)
I remember SL being down every Wednesday by Linden Labs for updating.
I remember if you changed your clothes on a pose ball, you were booted off of the pose ball.
I remember typing AO OFF, although I never typing bling ON or OFF.

circa 2005

When I began Second Life, in 2005, I was heavily into the Goth scene. I think I frequented Nevermore and Nomine every time I logged on. Back then customers had less power and pretty much were at the whims of the designers. We had no idea when new items were going to be released, unless they put a HUGE fucking sign in their store.

I truly loved my LF mini dress. I wore it far too much. If you zoom in closely, you can see the pit stains and cigarette burns in it. LOL The ETD hair was also another favorite. It still is a cute style, it would just needs some minor updates.

Now, I constantly jump between my &Bean and LeLutka skins. Both are EXCEPTIONAL, I think &Bean won out this time because I was feeling a little drunk off of a martini last night. RunoRuno is one of my favorite shops and the Shadethrone feather earring is the fucking shit.

Thanks Sophia for a great reminder of the MAJOR advances in avatar designs. We’ve come so far. Cheers!

Train Wreck

So this morning I took a shower and standing naked in my bedroom I see that my cat has puked on the jeans I was going to wear today. I mutter under my breath and quickly gather the jeans up for a quick wash in the sink. Luckily the puke is only the cuff of the leg and washes out easy enough.

Problem #1 Averted.

Then on the way to work, which is about a 40 minute commute through back country roads, my gas pedal decides not to work…. twice. It’s an easy fix, but annoying and rather tricky through any kind of intersection. I have to pop the hood, fix the knobby joint thingy (technical term) and then I am on my way. Tedious, but necessary when you have a piece of shit car like I do.

Problem #2 Resolved.

So, the last leg of the journey I am feeling pretty excited about coffee.
I need it.
I’ve earned it.
I park and stroll over to my favorite haunt.
It’s closed.

Facebook™ Drama

I met up with this old friend of mine from college via Facebook™ – which was really cool since we hadn’t spoken in many years. Truthfully, I had always had a crush on him. Years ago, he was interesting and could keep up with banter. Well, what I thought was banter. In retrospect, it was probably more him talking AT me and I being wide-eyed and eager to listen to sage words of advice.

Time happens. Years later, we start bantering again. At least, I thought it was an equal opportunity banter. I was wrong. Maybe when I addressed him as “Mr. Citizen of the World” he took it the wrong way. I did “wink” after to denote that I was just poking fun, like he had poked fun of me when he implied I had a “fascists post-puritan mindset”.

I mean…wtf… that’s a serious poke on his part, right? I mean he actually said “I also consider myself a citizen of the world” – how could I not poke at the pretentious statement?

To wrap up this story, I logged into Facebook™ this morning and I was officially un-friended.

Le sigh.
