    I never take it personally. 

    Sometimes I can shrug it off and it doesn't bother me.  Other times I take it very personally and spiral into the vortex of wondering what I did to warrant a deletion.  The imagination is a wondrous thing.

    Standing around today pondering what to do with myself.

    I love these sort of statements. I guess we are to pretend that "righties" aren't also so easily offended and don't go into a tizzy at the mere topic of race nor scurry for their "Not Woke and Proud" shirts at the mere mention of anything Black.

    I think we can do better as a society at live and let live when people stop with divisive comments and dropping in their dog whistle statements.

    No tizzies being thrown here.  

  3. So recently I have been trying to get out, be more sociable in SL, get to know people blah blah blah.  Normally I don't add people to my friend's list on first meetings as I like to get to know someone first, see if they are someone who will become a part of my SL, but I went against my own rule and added someone cos they seemed like a good person and someone I would enjoy getting to know and hang out with.  

    Then today I noticed I have been deleted from their list and I can only assume it is because I'm not a pushy person who was constantly up in their face wanting to hang out.  

    So this is how I look today...reaffirmed in the belief that people suck!

  4. Today I have a three part peeve.

    1. Being added to subscibos from stores I never joined just because I may have purchased something from them once upon a time.
    2. Having to TP around all these stores to unsubscribe from said subscribos just in case I may purchase something from them in the future as blocking will hinder delivery of future imaginary purchases.
    3. Having to hunt around to find the offending subscribos!

    Who's watching?  What will you watch?  Anything you'd like to comment on?  

    I believe it should have been cancelled due to the strain it may place on Japan and their healthcare systems.  

    I also do not believe it's right that we (NEW Zealand) sent a trans "woman" to compete against biological women.  

    Plus I can't think of anything more boring than watching other people play sports.

    Geez. People.

    I really do need to start that group (both IRL/SL) that I "joke" about here: Misanthropes Anon.

    I'd join, but....

    What you're seeing isn't anything that an auto-alpha will do. Are you wearing a clothing/tattoo layer? A clothing layer set to "Alpha Blending" will do that.

    It WAS my tattoo layer.  I could kiss you for pointing that out.  Now to see if the creator of the tatt I love to wear makes it in BOM!

  8. Recently I have been finding that clothing with lace or sheer bodice textures have been rendered invisible by my Petite auto-alpha and it is really beginning to bug the dickens out of me.  Is this a glitch, a viewer issue, a "me" issue or a box somewhere I should have ticked and didn't?  

    I wear the Lara V5.2 and Petite V1.1.

    From the front page of my profile

    If you say "r u" because it's shorter than "are you", I'll say "no" because it's shorter than "yes". Other than that, I'm IM friendly. However, please don't IM me with /me smiles. This shifts the responsibility of the conversation onto me whereas it should remain with you. Also, a 'hello' is fine but don't expect me to respond with more than the same. Have we all lost the art of conversing?

    Whenever I make that first contact, it is ALWAYS with something I've read in their profile.  Whether it's a place they have in their picks or something else I found interesting, it's something with which to start a dialog.  It's also never ever, " Great looking av.".  If it's something specific about their avatar I find interesting, I may comment on that as well.

    The worst is the HI back and forth followed by 5-10 minutes of nothing until they come back with, "So, do you come here a lot?"  Why do you bother IMing me in the first place if you aren't focused on talking to me?

    Trust me, it's not you.  It's them.

  10. Today's peeve - the death of the art of conversation.

    In my desperation for some life and interaction in my SL, I reactivated my profile on a certain SL friendship/relationship website.  This site has the option to send a little "note" first to test out things without having to waste the tokens this site runs on if the person you message isn't interested.  So if I receive a note, it usually says something like "Hi" or "I think we have a lot in common" blah blah blah, so I send a "Hi" back....and then its radio silence.  I get no further messages, notes or contact from the person who contacted me.

    It makes me think of the interactions I get in SL.

    Them - Hi
    Me - Hi there.
    Them - How are you?
    Me - Doing good tonight, how about you?
    Them - I'm good too.
    *ten minutes of silence*
    Them - Well I guess you're busy.

    It's like SERIOUSLY?   YOU APPROACHED ME!!!!  You expect ME to carry the conversation?  

    And I wonder why I think there really IS something wrong with me, and fast losing my will to log in.

    You can "buy back" the car from the insurance company and there are places that do have parts for cars much older then 30 years so... do the research. Insurance company totaled my truck (rear ended) when the frame was not twisted and just needed a new bed and rear bumper. Replacement bed came from junk yard and ex made the cast iron bumper since he was a welder. The truck was 2 years old when I got it 4 when rear ended, and I drove that little truck for a total of 14 years.

    Don't let insurance companies rip you off. That is what they are in business to do.

    My repairer cannot find the parts, plus I have been looking as well.  It's just impossible to find a replacement bumper and lights.  This is the disadvantage of living in a small country and having an obscure car!

  12. Ok so last week when I was on my way to work, the guy in front of me at the lights reversed hard back into me.  We both  have insurance, so all should be good, right?  Nope!  I have a 30 year old car that they can no longer find parts for, so although there is BUGGER ALL wrong with it, the fact it has only 146,000 Kms (90,000 miles translated for Murikans) on it, its being written off.  I'm beyond peeved!!!

    Two bits of plastic and a few lights.    PEEEEEEEEEEEVED!!!!!
