  1. I tend to go for white, black, red, pink and yellow/gold. Very occasionally green. Fatpacks always have blues, greens, greys, beiges that I would never use, so I tend to go single colours. Very occasionally I've bought 4 singles if the dress was awesome.

    Fatpacks seem to be getting more expensive, and these slot machine things are so annoying..........so annoying.

    I had this same issue with a person who wanted to reconnect with me a little over a week ago. My viewer would barely have time to load in before he would message me, he was also one of those types that keeps his viewer online 24/7, even when he's sleeping or AFK for hours at a time. After about 2 days I deleted him. It honestly stresses me out and makes me dread logging in if i know I'm gonna get flooded by IMs from someone.

    An ex partner if mine would do this too. I would literally check the SL site to see if he was online before I would log in, but it wouldn't be even 2 minutes later he would log in too, and it would happen every. Single. Time no matter when i logged in, I always imagined him just sitting there and spam clicking refresh till I popped online because I couldn't, and still can't figure out how else he woulda done it

    Call up an alt....... and enjoy stealth SL.

    When I started in SL I was surprised how many people offered to help me (I guess, I was looking like a bit lost, lol). And those are the great moments of SL: to realize, that there are a lot friendly people around you. 

    Thankful for the help I got as a noob, I am now trying my best, to help other „noobs“. So if you have questions, don‘t hesitate to IM me and ask me!

    Or me... very happy to help any newbie.

    Best advice....SL isn't a game by normal standards, its a life.

    So take your time, explore, go with the flow and suddenly who you are here and what your life is, becomes clear. :)

    In the US, “round” bacon is called Canadian Bacon. Normal bacon is in strips, made from pork belly.

    The stripy bacon is perfectly OK, but I need that to be just crispy...…..my mouth is watering as I type this...…………….

    But the crème de la crème of bacon sandwiches has to be...…….Canadian bacon then...…..

    I've only had such a thing twice, and I won't say where because you'll think I'm a posh chick if I do...…………😛

    I just don’t think we will ever see a Marmite pizza over here. Most have never heard of it, and the rest mostly chalk it up to being one of those weirdly charming things Brits eat, like kidney pie or beans on toast.

    A bacon sandwich has to be top notch to be unforgettable. The breadbun/breadcake/bap must be plain white. The bacon must be just the succulent lean circle, cooked to perfection. Brown sauce is essential. Butter is optional. What an experience!

  6. ^^^^This is a big part of it for me. Learning more about the RL me.

    I was scared of everything at the beginning, and easily spooked. I was certainly taken advantage of at times, but every strange encounter made me stronger.

    I found special people in SL who are benevolent, generous and fun, even when sometimes their RL was bad. I found mentors and confidantes, and my strength and confidence here has grown beyond anything I could have imagined.

    Its a self indulgent world here and all the better for it! I can dress up, hang out in clubs and on beaches and have way more fun tham is possible to safely do in RL.

    Shopping trapped me here, as I've said before. It was that more than anything which pulled me in, and when I discovered in world shopping that was it. I could spend all my in world time in store, and I resist that to keep some sort of budget.

    And of course the Forums. Where would I be without my daily phone fix, wherever I am. Like now in the supermarket car park.

    Finally here comes the sweeping generalisation.

    Girls spend loads of money on mesh bodies and looking good.

    Guys spend as little as possible on a system avi and chase sex. (Obviously not Orwar, Skell, and the guys who post on the forum). ;)

    All you need to change genders is a shape.

    When editing your shape, just click the toggle at the top right of the edit window.  The little Mars/Venus symbols.

    Before you do that, create a new shape so you don't mess up the one you normally use.

    If you don't feel like making your own shape, just buy a male shape you like, wear that and boom.  You're a man.

    Oh boy......the light comes on.....Mars and Venus, yeah "click" I know the symbols obviously, but never realised that until now.

    Me .....who laughed at the guy at work who said "what's this upper case thing you're all talking about?"

    A totally unartsie snap of me taking a bit of a break from setting up my new kitchen.

    Why did no one tell me? This house decorating thing is hard work!

    I'm also coming to realize that 1) my new house is HUGE, 2) I don't own nearly enough in the way of furnishings, and 3) my copious and spacious kitchen cupboards are conspicuous by the absence of food, plates, and cutlery, and pots and pans and stuff. I'll either have to buy some of this stuff, or fill them with, oh, I don't know . . . spare body parts?

    Gotta give it some thought.

    Also, 4) why the hell didn't I hire a contractor and interior decorator?

    Which I think might be a cocktail......*coughs*

    Once you find all the answer they change the questions. 

    Like I said a few days ago, each day on here shows me I know less than the day before. Eventually I'll realise I don't know anything.

    Oh, that will be when the unknown unknowns are all known unknowns. Coming soon on this channel....haha.

  10. This is my attempt at a Pirate costume for the party on 31st August. Most of the outfit is XO, but with my own boots, I'm very particular about my boots!. The cloak is amazing but only works with short hair, so I adopted my Agent Smith persona for this outfit. Amazingly short dark hair does seem to suit me...……….   

    I'll get a photo of Skye later in her version of this...……..

    Getting a costume ready for a party this Friday.

    Now that's a coincidence. I've just booted me and Skye up for a Pirate Party on 31st August at the beach. Not enough time today to post my picture, and Skye hasn't been in front of the camera yet in hers. I'll post mine tomorrow. I'm pleased how it turned out with a bit of pick and mix!!

  12. Everything moves fast in world and people move on equally fast. My longest lasting friendships are those which remain very loose and informal.

    The thing is, my time in world is finite, and also unpredictable. So each time I add a friend, there's proportionally less time to give everywhere else.

    Some people struggle with that and it may cause drifting apart. *shrugs*

    That's SL.
