"We're out of everything. I'm sorry."

With Miss Olivia Connaught


You know how it's late and you've worked a full day and your brain shuts down and you don't know what to say or think or feel and you stare at a piece of paper and it stares back at you? Yeah. I want to stop and stare at the ceiling instead now. But I can't because I teach my first iPhone 4 class tomorrow and it's 1:17 and the husband's been in bed for hours and here I am still trying to unwind from a full day…

If you parsed that, you deserve a prize. Also, Olivia is photoing with me, and she looks great. My dress is new from Plastik.

Flop

pi01


Disjointed thoughts, iPhone-riffic day. It's late and I'm sleepy and the summer sun is giving us a respite by being on the other side of the earth. I'm too much in Real Life to think about Second Life today (there was a certain product launch at my store), but I snuck in and photographed a little. Hm. Nuff said.

Angel below

Trapped in an oubliette


A few days ago, hyasynth was auctioned off for charity. Part of the auction involved this dress, a gorgeous sweep of white fabric and corsetry. I love the balance of long skirt and tight torso and flowing sleeve, I spent a while playing with the lines of the dress in photos last night. I love it when clothing evokes a mood or a character, and the color and construction of this one very definitely created someone in my head. She's an angel trapped in a pit! Or perhaps she's diabolical, and only looks sweet… (SLURL to ~silentsparrow~)

Please also notice my beautiful dusky skin, new from Amacci -- I love the pouty but natural look of the lips. (SLURL to Amacci). And my glowy, interesting new eyes are from La Malvada Mujer. (SLURL to La Malvada Mujer).

Thunder through the night

Miss Katat0nik Pigeon


It's summertime with a vengeance. Outside, the air is strobing with warring fronts of weather -- the warm and cold are duking it out high in the atmosphere, and the scorching heat of the afternoon gives way to torrential rain. Monsoon time in Florida, and the parks are full of wet, lobster-colored tourists who all troop into my store when the rain comes.

The launch of a certain new phone is this week. Thursday, in fact. I spent several solid hours on the phone helping calm people down from their nervousness about it -- a few asked what time in the morning they can come line up. The answer is: 6 AM. In SL, I am so very distracted that I stand looking blankly at my avatar and forget what I came in for. I think this is also due to summertime.

Bring on October please. OH AND -- isn't Katat0nik's hair lovely? It's new from Lazy Places.
