    Received Items?

    Sometimes I have had to relog for stuff to populate in my Received Items. Once, its like I was blocked for a few days and NOTHING showed up, so I went on vacation in RL and when I came back - all the stuff I was looking for was there PLUS things that had sporadically not been delivered for a couple of years back..... It was like a little Inventory Time Capsule.... Some of that stuff had me like...."I'll never drink while browsing the Marketplace again"........
  2. /me pokes the thread to keep it alive and eats her Monday morning ice cream.....
  3. Strangely, I've been called anorexic-looking because my butt was "human sized".....
  4. My heroine! I get SO frustrated when I'm working at the club and I WANT to greet a guest properly - but their name is "Cutsie-Illegible". So I *try* and occasionally they get miffed when I get their illegible name wrong..... in my defense, I really thought that guys name was P33N1z......
  5. Associating with people in SL who are in the literary community also got me more active in my own writing. Having that understanding social circle was like adding fuel to the creative fires.....
  6. Its an issue for sure! It took me a while to learn that I needed to have enough respect for myself, NOT to accommodate the immature just to earn their approval. I got divorced shortly after that :-)
  7. Talli, I'll tell you the Funny part first..... My eyes get tired and when I first saw that thread this morning (after working all night), I thought it was Pro-ana(l). I've been in Sl a while, so I was thinking; "How is that unusual for SL?" I may be a little virtually jaded...... On anything that deals with sexuality, it all seems to wheel around Consent. Flogging your lover = Bad *if* they didn't want it, but if they *asked* you to then "its a consensual affair and sort-of OK" Where that gets sticky (no pun intended) is in three specific situations; (1)..The person giving Consent was actually not of the legal age of consent and legally unable to do so. (2)..The person giving Consent was not mentally capable of actually giving Consent. (3)..The person giving Consent changed their mind and lied about ever giving Consent in the first place to others who were outside of the Dominant-Submissive relationship. So IMO its good to confine that kind of Playtime to people one knows well and with whom there is a clear understanding of Consent (and when it can be withdrawn). Self-Abuse - including self-starvation, is hard to address unless the person doing it is blatantly not mentally quipped to be making their own decisions. I have been known in the past to have Conversations with friends who were pushing risky-behavior to lengths that worried me; but I'm strange and believe that being someone's Friend means being willing to make sure they're Ok even when the conversation is uncomfortable.....
  8. That's my Profile Visitors List? I always sort of thought of it as my To-Do List :-) I'll calm down now......
  9. On this day, June 7th 1767, Daniel Boone sights present-day Kentucky....
  10. Xer, I'm thinking that when I see male avatars whose Package is set to "100" and whose cranium is about half-size related to their over-blown digital muscles; those pants would look perfect on them :-) At least they'd be wearing pants. I get really tired of guys "flagpole-ing" at events......
  11. I kinda think CNN/Fox/Brietbart/MSNBC fall under the mantra; "Different (talking) head - same snake" When news becomes entertainment or agenda-driven and there is a financial incentive to maintain turmoil, it becomes more about "telling a story" than "reporting events".
  12. One this date June 6th 1944, the Allies Land in Normandy....thus since that is WAY to serious and significant event to poke my usual .gif fun at....... June 6th, 1977 - US Secretary of State Cyrus Vance CONFIRMS President Jimmy Carters interest in Human Rights That's a lot of Rights........
  13. On June 3 1965 Astronaut Edward White becomes the first American to walk in space when he exits the Gemini 4 space capsule.
  14. My "today" look started off working at the club, but ended much nicer - spending "us-time" with my longtime Partner. I'm really loving SL and a particular lady :-)
  15. (a)..Which God is that? We have numerous ones being worshipped and more popping up all the time :-) (b)..So far as nudity automatically equalling sex.....I grew up in a military family and was an athlete until after high-school, when I JOINED the military. Organized athletics and the military (where you change, bathe, etc in a group) are kind of the opposite of "body-modest" and I never saw anyone "getting it on" in the locker room *never* had to neuter anyone for making unwanted advances. The United States and Canada are very large geographic areas however, so experiences may vary.
  16. Can I "double like" this post please? :-)
  17. Today in history......on June 1st, CNN launched and the 24-hour news-cycle and News-as-Entertainment was born!
  18. "Linden Lab has today announced that the previous welcome message (see below) has not been helpful with New Resident retention, and will be discontinued;"
  19. Today in 1900 - U.S. troops arrive in Peking to help put down the Boxer Rebellion.
  20. Personally, I think SL is at its best when people use the opportunity to experience facets of life that they might not in RL. I have a male avatar I keep to use while Building and on those rare occasions he has to interact with others; it's "different" and that's educational. Having spent a lot of time in role play sims, I once had occasion to play an African-origin Non-player-character to help with a sim story-arc, and she was Definitely treated differently, and that was also educational. I did an Asian character once for the same reason and got similar results. There are people (possibly insecure-ones) who default to shrieking "Cultural, Racial, Gender Appropriarion" - but I am not one of those. Learning to understand each other is also learning to get along. We need more of that.
  21. The male avatar later in the video.....his walk AO scares me......
