Carolling

Wynn wasn’t a natural singer, but she always gave things a good try. As she belted out the carols that night, she found herself swapping out the duller words for more *fruity* options, some of which caused the owners of the beautiful house behind her to blush. Wondering whether people were going for a coffee break, she found herself slowly abandoned by her friends and the lights in the house switched off. “Oh well” she thought. “Might as well sing another one and see if they prefer that!”

Holly

What could Wynn Say? When the Big Man calls, she runs to his arms. Was it the beard? The bold fashion taste? His booming voice? In all honesty, she didn’t know, but when He ho ho ho’d, she knew she couldn’t say no.

A Question of Luck

I’m a sucker for good quality clothing, hair and shoes in SL. I’m also a sucker for a bargain. A good quality freebie in SL….even better! When I have free time inworld, I love to find a good lucky board, hang out with like minded people and see what comes my way. Don’t be fooled though, it isn’t all giggles and chilled conversation. If a board has a wildcard (?) feature enabled, I’ve seen people go from smiley to ultra competitive in the time it  takes to blink. But for me, that’s part of the experience and the fun of hanging around lucky boards. You never quite know what you’re going to get.

Music is food for the soul

I love music. Listening to it on my walk to work, in the car; if there isn’t anything to watch on tv I’ll pop a music channel on and knit to my heat’s content. It’s an integral part of my daily life. I adore attending live music events and am signed up to a bunch of newsletters. If I see a band I like the look of…that’s it. I’m there. I’ve been going to gigs by myself for years and I love the freedom that comes with it. It’s my experience, it’s my way of connecting with other like minded people and sharing something…tribal…with them. It touches my soul and nourishes it.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been DJing at one of my favourite clubs in SL, the Twisted Cork. It’s been baby steps so far but what excites me is the prospect of sharing something I love dearly with like minded people. It also gives the Boss a break from my incessant IMs asking for song requests. Now he can just tell me “play it yourself” and I can! He’s been my mentor through this experience and I’m enjoying learning a new craft. He jokes that they’ve ‘created a monster’ and maybe they’re right. But, somehow I don’t think so 🙂

If you’re ever at a loose end, come listen for yourself: Tuesdays 1-2.30PM SLT – my 90 min rock block at the Twisted Cork.

Enjoy x

‘Elfed Up

Dare I suggest it? Dare I utter the words…those words that start with the letters “C” and “D”? Usually in my household those words are banned until December 1st. I refuse to acknowledge what the shops have been ramming down my throat since August….”Christmas approacheth lady, and are you ready?” In a single word “awww hell no!” Ok, that’s three but you get my drift!

One thing I must confess to enjoying though at this time of year (apart from the excuse to eat cake and drink sparkly fruity wine), is the fun jumpers that the stores carry. I didn’t realise til this year that it’s actually a ‘thing’ to raise money for charity on December 15th (http://www.nationaluglychristmassweaterday.org/). So, you never know: this year I may well be purchasing and wearing mine, all for a good cause. I know I’ve started early with my pixel self, but my real self may have to join in on the fun too.

Hidden in plain sight

Sometimes, when people say they’re ok, they aren’t. When they’re asking you if you’re ok…..what they’re really asking you is “ask me if I’m ok.” They’re looking for someone to realise that they’re hurting and reach out to them. It could just be a conversation or a joke shared to break the ice. It could be a kiss, an affirmation of love and being wanted. Don’t lose sight of them; these people who are hidden in plain sight. Reach out and show them that they’re loved.
