Sea-splashed rocks of home

I am wearing unseasonably warm clothing to visit my partner Jackal's wee sea-side cottage. It was cold by the rocks, honest. So I, uh, had to wear leather pants, very warm boots, and this sweater. But my stomach never gets cold, ever, so I wore the shortest sweater I could find.

Y'all would laugh at the amount of struggle and pain I've had trying to figure out my mesh (SLink) body. So you can turn the body off in slices to better fit your clothes, eh? And you can toggle on the tattoo and clothing layers, eh? It only took me ... two hours, tops, to figure it all out. *cough* And yeah, there was still a lot of "why doesn't this damned thing show up!"

Anyway. I still love SL and still love admiring other people's creativity, in landscapes, in clothing.

I don't remember how to make my head join my body

You know what I've missed about Second Life? All of the people, and all of the people's ridiculous imaginations. Like Katat0nik, who made both the thirsty-looking cat blowup doll/pool float, and this overly large candy stick with a bunny head. And my outfit, too. The stick candy stuff is at the nifty sim of Nagisa, which is having a festival right now. Go for the cute stuff, stay for the fireworks!

Whenever I hike around FLF, I buy a thing, and mentally convert it. 50L = 20 cents, US. I hope that
all our spare change adequately supports the artists in this world!

Shoutout to Nivaya, spotted today in an adorable kid avvie, looking adorable.

Well this is awkward.

Whenever I have hefty writing assignments, I feel compelled to use a different part of my brain. I did that last weekend -- wrote and researched a lot -- and the end result was that I desperately needed to take pictures of my avatar in pretty clothing. I logged into SL, and such is the kindness of Jackal Ennui (I miss ya!) that my house and all my things were still there, despite not being around since, um, ... last... February? 

I also found that I'd forgotten a lot of things, and had to relearn some. "Where's my butt," I thought, staring in perplexity at my avatar. "Why is my entire body an attachment."

With some kind help from Hyasinth I figured it out. It was good to chat with some people again -- I also got to say howdy to Ms. Grady, whom I've missed too. 

I know I'm supposed to say things about my clothing now. So I pulled the hair out of an ancient hair folder. I think it's an old Clawtooth 'do. The dress is probably old hat by now too, but it's by Ms. Jackal and is fabulous. Look at that texture! The cool twiggy head thing is from Katat0nik, complete with attachable leaves, and the shoes are from Allegory. 

It's so hot here in Real Life Land that I decided to dress for fall. 

Nice to see everyone! Now let's see whose feeds I'm still aggregated on... :D
