I had a rather shitty morning.
I logged into Second Life and decided to take The Smiths' advice: I tricked out my avatar in black. Then, I added more black, even more black, and a tiny bit of red. Suddenly I felt better. Amazing how clothing has that affect, isn't it? Especially black. Nothing like pretending that you're in deep mourning to make the rest of your life seem positively glowy.
Small side note about the shoes. I knew I'd be addicted to Tesla's Ziggy shoes if I let myself get a pair, and lo, I am. They have a steep Edwardian line and brocaded texture that totally gives me airs. Next thing you know I'll be pretending I'm nobility. Nobility in mourning?
