Ahoy, Matey… I’m sorry it’s been so many weeks since I’ve posted in my blog. This month has been up and down, most of it has gone by in a blur. Now my cat, Robin, is ill and we don’t know what’s wrong. She’s sixteen years old and has been with me through just about everything in the last 16 years. She’s my sweet pea. We’ll be taking her to the vet on Saturday. Please keep her in your thoughts. She’s a big part of my life and has been for so long, I can’t imagine going through a day when she is not cuddling with me or watching TV with me. Or without our simple cat/human conversations where she usually tells me all about it and I have no idea what she is saying.
Which brings me to something that’s been bugging me lately. The way people treat each other, without even knowing them or what their story is – the assumptions, anger, or all around bullying of those people…Excuses to be an ass just because they are angry. Getting their friends to “gang up” on people because they have a different opinion than theirs, even though the opinions are pretty much the same, but said differently. It’s all aggravating to be on the brunt end of some of this because someone can’t take the time to read a post or a thread and comprehend what they have read. SL is an amazing place, which is made up of many different people from different walks of life. But sometimes people forget that they aren’t just dealing with some NPC autobot, but rather there’s a person behind that avatar or that Facebook account or that IM, who may or may not be having a bad day that is made so much worse by some asshole who thinks it’s fun to tear people down on the internet (If you think this is about you, then it probably is something you should consider and adjust). All the hatred, anger, or meanness, is enough to drain you.
The last two weeks we’ve been working on a dress up badge for my girl scout troop in SL where we had to dress as a Pirate for two weeks… and talk like one too… although, I didn’t do such a good job with the talking like a pirate part of the badge, but I did try. For this day, I chose the Dead Dollz Polly outfit in red which is a nice corset with an off the shoulder top and tight leggings with a belt and pouch. We had to wear four pieces for this badge in addition to our outfits so I am wearing an eye patch with a jolly roger on it, a basic bottle that I found on MP, a pirate pistol and a cutlass. Paired this all with a pair of boots from N-Core and you have one sexy ensemble for any Pirating needs! Ar, Matey, you savvy!?!
