This is my current avatar. She's an Usagi Child ^.^  

i was wondering around a SIM one day, and some dude private messaged me tellin' me he loved my look... he was very polite and kind, asked me to stop running and turn my AO off for him, so i did... the

I find it very entertaining to switch my looks according to my mood. I woke up one day and decided to change my shape into a more petite and "model" look.   Before (with Genesis Lab bento head):

For me to take the damned picture.

More fun with photos! Kind of an experiment with different effects.

Yes yes yes, you did.

As I said, it's ok. I AM only on season 5, but I'm also not sufficiently invested that I'm going to lose sleep about knowing. And it's pretty much impossible to be plugged into any media these days and not know that something went seriously awry in the last episode.

Thanks, Belinda! Amazing what a bit of makeup will do!

I think, too, that it makes me look somewhat older than my pics usually do, which is to the good. I took a third pic last night which I thought I liked, but which I decided, in the cold hard light of this morning, was no good because it made me look about 16. Shaving 20 years off my age is barely ok; dropping 30 is too much even for me!

So, no big surprise here that I’m a huge GOT fan... and I feel personally responsible to Scylla because my post definitely got this whole spoiler thing started, so I’m chiming in... 

Mr Orwar..., well, kinda, sorta....  hiding content isn’t quite the same thing as flagging it which is saying “hidden spoiler alert” 🚨...

However, in your defense,  you did hide it but, to Scylla’s point, I also would have unassumingly looked as well, not realizing that it might be a huge spoiler alert to end spoiler alerts that was hidden... (kinda like Luke kills his dad, Darth Vader) instead, maybe I’d thinking there might be a picture of Nephe with dragons or something like that 😮... ooooohh yes, Nephe with the giant dragon behind her! Yay, do that... or I swear I’ll do a glam version of it, and ruin the whole dark arts nature of it all! Please ;)

I think GOT is the best TV show, series or Movie entertainment I’ve ever filmed... especially taken as a whole series together! @Scylla Rhiadra please keep the faith girl, the show gets a bit bogged down in season 4-5... IMHO, yet seasons 6, 7 and 8 are like blasting to the moon 🌝! The spoiler doesn’t ruin anything,  as many characters die easily in this show (remember the red wedding) ..., it’s really the incredible journey, with great dialog, acting, special effects and a wildly imaginative story that I guarantee will still keep you surprised regardless about what you hear 😮! All three remaining seasons build upon each other, where each show begin to feels like an epic feature films rather then a HBO series. 

Anyway, I rewatched all 8 seasons = 70+ hrs of TV over about 6 weeks... wow, what a journey! I’m a fan, and I don’t say that about much, except all you guys 😘

Sorry everyone... waayyyy off topic.

Great hair, sexy outfit and huge handbag! Where are you going alone at night with that (dare I say) overnight bag 💼?!!  Dr. String I presume?

   I haven't really seen any convincing dragons in SL, not sure where I'd look for one either. I'd probably have to do a chromakey, which I hate doing (no shadows, a lot of work cleaning up the backdrop around the edges, having to colour match the subject with the backdrop) - and then I'd have to find a suitable backdrop in a sufficient resolution from a source that's either without copyright (there aren't a whole lot of stock photos of dragons, seeing as they don't like being photographed) or from a source that I think I can get away with stealing from. Or I could draw my own dragon, but I'd probably need a few years of practice drawing, first.

   Besides, the last time I was requested to do a certain picture, the response to it both here and on Flickr was quite underwhelming. Sighs.

OH!  I should have known.  I have seen some other JOMO avatars and they are all stunning.  I am tempted to get their tiger but not sure if I would really have a chance to wear it much.

My Great-Great-Aunt Winnie had come to Berlin seeking adventure, but also, it is clear from her early remarks, because Germany seemed in the mid-20s to be at the forefront of emancipation for women. The phenomenon of the "neue Frau" -- the "New Woman" at the vanguard of the supposed social revolution that was making skirts and women's hairstyles shorter, and their participation in public and political life more important -- certainly seems to have been a vital part of the allure that Berlin in particular had for Winnie.

Part of what Winnie sought in Berlin she certainly seems to have found: she records a stream of visits to coffeehouses, department stores, and cinemas. But the hard reality of the fact that the social liberation had not been accompanied by a universal utopian freedom from drudgery hit her quite hard. The Republic was certainly more prosperous in 1927 than it had been four years before, but unemployment was still high -- and non-traditional work for women was still relatively hard to come by, particularly where one was burdened by a language problem and a narrow education.

Consequently, after about a week and a half of "dissolute living" (which mostly seems to have involved buying a new cloche hat, and drinking too much), Winnie was forced to look for work. Three fruitless weeks of searching for work as a stenographer or secretary (her frustration is palpable in this part of her journal) compelled her to accept Frau Becker's suggestion that she take in laundry. And so Winnie became, for a time anyway, a laundress, a disheartening return to what she calls in her journal "the drear and endless round of our sex's foreordained drudgery."

And drudgery it does seem to have been. Although newer, semi-automated washing machines (even electric ones!) were coming on to the market in the 20s, Winnie's references to her laundry work, brief as they are, make it clear that she didn't have access to such luxury. Winnie had to fill a tub with hot water, drawn from a communal pump and heated in a bucket over her landlady's stove. The tub she used -- again, Frau Becker's -- had a hand-worked "agitator," but most of the washing involved scrubbing on a washboard, and two rinses with clean water. The tub seems to have had a spigot for draining, but the waste water still had to be taken bodily to the sink, one bucket at a time, to be emptied between each part of the cycle. Then, of course, the laundry had to be hung out to dry; in this picture, I think, Winnie is collecting dry clothes from the line.

Unsurprisingly, the early pages of the journal make more than one reference to tired and sore arms and back.

Winnie doesn't detail how much she earned from her work as a laundress, but she does note with some excitement that, in one particularly lucrative week in September, 1927, she had worked through 2 loads of "flat work and beastly collars," and collected the handsome sum of almost 40 Reichsmarks (each Reichsmark being worth a little more than 20 US cents) -- enough for a more-than-usually-extravagant evening out with Anne and unspecified others. A loaf of bread in 1927 cost about 50 Reichspfennig -- a half a Reichsmark -- so she had earned enough, I hope, for a bit of a splash!

If I can figure out the German in her journal -- and some of it seems to be coded, or use shorthand -- maybe I can get a better sense of how she actually was spending her leisure time!
