The sex meme

December 30, 2007

I’m sure that most, if not all of you have seen this meme going around. Looker tagged me after he completed it, and I’ve been mulling over what to do for a couple of days. My first thought was to fill it out and just put down “Tobie” as every answer, but that just seemed a bit much.

Anyway, I just got engaged to the cutest and most caring little neko in SL, and my thoughts are only on her. So, I guess I’m saying that even though I’m not going to fill out the meme with all “Tobies,” that’s really the way I feel right now.

Yeah, I know. I’m no fun 😛

I have finally posted the first chapter of Kyūketsuki.

Seasons greetings!

December 24, 2007

OK, after the negativity of my last post, I decided I had to post something good again before I left for the holidays.

Victor and I wish you the best holiday season ever!

I haven’t been very excited about Christmas this year. The last year has been pretty tumultuous, and some of the people who were in my life at Christmas last year aren’t with me this year to help celebrate. It’s taken all the positive things that have happened in SL recently to lift me out of my funk and to make me really just how lucky I am.

I am very, very grateful for all the friendships I’ve made over the last 10 1/2 months in SL. I’ve shared a lot of good times with a lot of good friends, and I hope you all know that I love you to death and wish you only the best this holiday season and in the upcoming year!

And then there’s Tobie. The fact that she chooses to be with me and cares about me as much as she does . . . well, it means more to me than I can express here. I’m looking forward to the new year and our upcoming partnership 🙂

Seasons greetings, everyone! I hope Santa leaves you all kinds of goodies tonight 😉

Merry Christmas to Alhazrad Rasmuson (jackass)

December 24, 2007

So, I’m visiting Daeskins for the first time, not realizing that the very talented and awesome Daequix Scarborough had a store in world, and I have my camera focused on one of her vendors. As I’m standing there, I see an avie approach me, and I hear a noise. I’m waiting for him to say something to me, dreading yet another proposition for sex, but he says nothing. After a moment, the lucky chair in Dae’s store changes letters, and it’s looking for someone whose first name begins with “C”! Yay, yet another freebie! 🙂 I move my camera over to the chair, choose to sit there, and claim my prize. I look back over to where I was standing, and there sits a cage. Yep, that noise I heard was this jerk trying to cage me! He just stood there a second before boarding some kind of jet board and fleeing the scene.

So, merry Christmas to you, Alhazrad Rasmuson! Thank you so much for attempting to give me the gift of involuntary confinement. I apologize that I was so rude to reject it 😛

She said, “yes”!

December 24, 2007

After almost eight months together, I finally got the courage to ask Tobie to parnter 🙂

Cuddling after her answer

And I was worried I was going to have a bad Christmas this year 😉

Social obligations, or Sunday morning neurosis (take 2)

December 23, 2007

OK, apparently I’m unusally neurotic this morning. Anyway . . .

Over the weekend, I sent a Christmas card to friends in world. Thankfully, Tobie finished the card late last week, as I was having problems coming up with something suitable to send out, and she designed something much cuter than what I would have with the pics I had taken.

Yesterday, one of the people on my friends list started a conference with all her friends to tell them to quit spamming her with cards, etc. Of course, this is someone I had sent a card to the previous night.

At first, I got a little defensive (though I didn’t say anything). What I sent, I sent out of friendship, and now I was being chastized for it. Though it didn’t last, for a while, I was a little upset/angry.

Christmas cards are, to many, a social obligation, and I can understand the annoyance with feeling compelled to respond in kind when receiving one from someone else. The act of giving has gone from a gesture of good will to one of reciprocal action. So, with this in mind, why is it that I took some offense to my friend’s response?

I think this may tie in a little with the post I made earlier. It may be that I don’t necessarily always want to meet my social obligations, but I do it because it’s expected of me. Maybe I got upset at my own inability to respond how I want to at times instead of what I’m actually feeling.

Before anyone takes this the wrong way, I absolutely wanted to send out holiday greetings to all my friends! I actually wish I could have done more. Maybe I’ll work on my design skills so that I can send a little something out on Valentine’s Day.

I guess at its core, what I’m questioning here is my own compliance with social expectations and obligations. I’m wondering if by keeping my feelings in check at times, I am doing a disservice to both myself and the people with whom I’m interacting.

Meh, I don’t know. Time for another cup of coffee 🙂

December 23, 2007

I now have twelve shapes finished, and they’re available both in world (for like three more days) and through OnRez. You can find my storefront here.

Anyway, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, let me know, even if it’s to say, “Wow, that Schoolmarm shape is ugly!” 😉
