We Ride Fords with Lift Kits

Steampunky 88 (2)

I am a short and narrow person in real life, but yesterday I spent my time sitting high above traffic in a Ford F150 truck. I mentioned this on plurk, and a kindly and eco-conscious soul said, "This represents all that's wrong with the world." True enough, true enough. But on the other hand, I've had "Drive a Ford F150" on my bucket list since the 80s. Why? I think it's because they've always felt like enormous bloody mecha suits to me. Strap in, and they extend your power by that much, which is a rare feeling for me because I usually don't have height and heft. Also, I was using it to pick up a freecycled armoir. Even though I had to rent an F150 from U-Haul, at least I was doing it to further the cause of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle?

Anyway. I mention this because Plurk is where real life and second life meet and clash in a way that's sometimes ugly, sometimes honest, and always entertaining. Got plurk? I'm "Kuno1chi" there. Add me!

I'll be back in my boy avatar shortly for the holiday season, but I'm taking a wee break to wear some of the things from C88. Gah, I love everything, especially the jewelry from LaGyo, hair from Clawtooth, and dress from Katat0nik. I liked it so much I styled it twice! Hope you make it into the sim.
