A crystal lair

You ready? I went to Arcade and boy did I click obsessively on the little gacha machines. I realized that the stuff I bought tended to be either macabre or cute or both, which... fine, it's a fair assessment of my character.

Among my favorite things were Schadenfreude's crystal cottage, MadPea's little shop of nightmares, and the PLAAKA library stuff. I shrank the small temple (actually the size of a cottage) down for display. And, uh, I couldn't fit all of the cute items in one go without seriously lagging poor Jackal's prim count on her sim. *cough* sorry Jackal! Anyway. Photos of my lair are below.

The waters of September

Hanging out with the floppy dodo

Not one traveller
braves this road -
autumn night.
-- Bassho

The roads are ankle-deep in water as a storm swirls up the gulf of Mexico. My little town is only getting collateral rain, but it's about to be Labor Day weekend, and my mind is far from here. The season changed abruptly -- the dry summer turned overnight into the hurricane months, and already I am anticipating all of the year-ending holidays.

But there are still a few days left to hang out in a skirt and bikini, as we do here in this floating world.

That's where it's at

Once upon a time, when I started this blog back in 07, I thought to myself: I am going to post something every single day. Well, I mostly did. I rarely skipped a day, and the habit of daily blogging was a fun and artistic and mind-clearing part of my life. (Sometimes I posted more than once a day, yeesh.)

Now I have a lot more going on, and I find it's tough to post more than once a week. It's good and bad to be completely disconnected with that vital blogger underground on Second Life. It means I have no idea what's going on or what any of the gossip is; it means I'm probably taking better care of my real life than I did in my 30s when all I wanted was escape. Older, wiser, more balanced. But still somehow unable to stop putting on and taking off the pretty clothes.

Here are new boots from Katat0nik, at Arcade, and this great tattoo from ~silentsparrow~ that was for FLF.
