  1. So my Partner was DJing at Velvet Thorn today....... I actually went in-theme for the event despite the fact that I'm usually not a "Dancer Silks" kind of gal.... What we do for love....
  2. So we're saying that I can still blame SL for my lack of clothing and not any ongoing exhibitionism on my part?
  3. I have seen several of you say this before, and I'm really starting to agree; sometimes these forums are really more interesting than SL. That's not a knock at SL, that's a compliment to y'all :-) Also, I have never had to shop for an outfit to come to the forums, unlike so many events in SL......
  4. Here is a shot from Baja Norte / Baja Bay. I REALLY love the place; just make sure you find a windlight setting you like because the region default is very washed-out/pale.
  5. Wow, what a FUN question........ Amanda is not my original avatar; I started SL in 2005 - so my various shenanigans cover a bit of time :-) I've been a stripper in SL (not in RL except for my ill-advised wedding night) at the notorious Barbie Club I'm more romantically assertive here than in RL In SL, no closet can hold me.... in RL - everyone thinks I'm "very quiet" In RL, I have one of those jobs where I have to "represent" the company 100% of the time - so I have to watch what I say. In SL - not so much.... In RL I "coach" people and use respectful language in t
  6. Today has been a good day to sit in my comfy home-office chair and not accomplish much... Happy "Unproductive-Work-From-Home" day!!!
  7. This kinda ties to all the "sex in SL" posts. Humans have a sex drive and the search for procreation (even a virtual facsimile) crosses all barriers.
  8. If you're Caucasian and you have to look into the misdeeds of other Caucasians deeply enough, you start being mistrustful of them too. My big problem is that I really don't trust most *people* much any more; I've seen the aftermath of what people who "look like me" can do when we're behaving badly, and it was just as barbaric as anyone else's barbarity. That's a bad place to be in, because it leaves you isolated and in SL way too much :-) Pixel-people are somehow less threatening.
  9. Is Mandom an acronym? Messy Anxious Narcoleptic Dominant maybe? That would be someone who shows up to Scene, messes up the place, has performance issues and then passes out..... ..are there others?
  10. So I am on my way home from my son's Basic Training graduation and I stop at a McDoofers in a small Arkansas town. Not my idea, but my co-pilot craves Chicken SickNuggets. This was NOT a good McDoofers and the whole experience was a hysterical catastrophe, from the profanity used by the order-taker to the frozen chicken SickNugget on the tray she got - but she had to hustle me out of the place when my "hysterical laughter" was triggered by the cashier... She made two separate "yowels" for help that were innocent separately, but back to back they (and everything up to that point) had
  11. Ok, I'll reveal a little of my inner perversity :-) Poseballs or scripted furniture are an afterthought to me; it's what's going on in the text that's interesting. Not EVERYONE can emote well, especially not the private stuff. Its not really about what I see, but how I feel about it :-)
  12. Probably the content providers and sex-workers who are dependent on this for an inworld income would not like having the prospective customer-base limited. Linden Lab might insist on it as an (ineffective) means if keeping the underage out of those areas. Speaking as one who worked in that SL industry for a bit, I really don't care. -except- that many of the Non-Premium clients who still have $ to spend are Alts of well-heeled Residents who can afford to pay for recreation but don't want to be seen doing it. While that might be ethically reprehensible if they are cheating on s
  13. I was an "early adopter" when it came to smartphones, My employer bought us all a Palm Treo, which replaced my Palm-III PDA and a cool-looking but fairly useless Nokia slider-phone. Personally, I think AI is something we should not just -do- because we can. The human race needs to carry its own water as much as is practical.
  14. The possibility exists that you have evolved beyond the need for props like shoes on order to cause fits of envy in all around you. I spend too much on shoes... please tell me how you got there!
  15. Insanity runs in my family, at least he chose a branch that makes a semi-normal life possible :-) My son is probably smarter than I was at his age :-)
  16. I am sitting in an airport in Texas waiting for the rest of my party to arrive so I can go to the hotel and let them (the hotel) pamper me. (I want "the rest of my party" to stay far away; they had their chance) Hedonism, thy name is Amanda. Tomorrow I see my son for the first time in a couple of months as he prepares to graduate from Basic Training :-)
  17. /me cries big sad tears. "I am trapped in RL while traveling to visit my son! No new shoes for Amanda!" /me attempts to crawl into SL via iPhone and gets looked at very curiously by airport security.
  18. If you have the technical skills to create items to sell and the fashion sense to make ones people want to buy, that makes you able to -compete - but is no guarantee that you will succeed. It's like RL that way.
  19. Have you checked out Cubey Terra and his people's? Cubey has been doing SL aircraft and skydiving for a long time, and if he's still around could probably point you in the right direction.
  20. I see this still going round and round and people still demanding that SL be absolutely forced to mirror RL. That means in SL I am supposed to have the disability that constrains me in RL? There is this social app called Tind-something that allows people to Meat-Market their RL selves. Perhaps that would be a better venue for the Digital Realists than SL? Voluntarily of course as I am not "keen" on forcing anyone to participate in anything against their will. :-)
