Have you seen this kitten?

February 23, 2008

I realize that I’ve been relatively inactive when it comes to Flickr and blogging these days. We have stages in our lives when some things are more important to us than others. At this point and time, Flickr and blogging do not have the draw for me that they once did. I seem to want to go out and experience SLife rather than write about it or share images of it. I would rather spend my free time in world than outside it.

I’m going to try to get back to writing Kyūketsuki on a regular basis, as I do want to continue that story. I would like to get in two posts by the middle of next week, picking up a weekly schedule again starting next weekend. That may be somewhat ambitious, but I’m going to try.

As for Streeter Scene . . . well, it’s not going anywhere, but updates will not likely come with any regularity. The days of wanting to post daily or every other day have passed.

Of course, all this may change in a week. A woman’s prerogative to change her mind, right? 😉

Kyūketsuki Chapter 7

February 19, 2008

I’m going to try very, very hard to get the newest chapter posted sometime tonight (probably late).

Thanks to everyone who continues to read 🙂

EDIT:

OK, I obviously did not get the newest chapter posted last night. I am still going to try to post it before the weekend, but I make no promises. I will post back here when I have the new chapter up.

Streeter Scene turns one year old

February 16, 2008

Yep, it was one year ago today that I started Streeter Scene. My inaugural post recounted my experience of seeing ColeMarie play at the Faerie Gardens.

Today, to mark the occasion, I’m planning to go see my friend Annie’s group Toe’d Up play in world. If you would like to come as well (and why wouldn’t you?), you can see them at The Bushy Beard at 3 PM SLT.

Here’s the SLURL.

Hope to see some of you there! 🙂

Don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like mine?

February 14, 2008

Simply beautiful

Tonight, I get to share my Valentine’s Day with one of SL’s most wonderful residents. It’s hard to believe I’ve been able to call her my girlfriend for over nine months now. The happiness she brings me . . . I don’t know how to explain it. Though we’ve had a few rough times, I don’t think I could have found a better match.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone ❤

New Kyūketsuki chapter tonight

February 11, 2008

Either late this afternoon or sometime this evening, I will post Chapter 6 of Kyūketsuki. In this chapter, we will finally see what Ai looked like as a human and we’ll get a little more information on her relationship with Tomo. Plus, there will be a little nudity, for all you pervs out there. Yeah, I know my audience 😉

Thanks to everyone for supporting my little project 🙂

New(bie) perspective

Yann in all his newbie glory

This is Yann. If you can’t tell, he’s a newbie.

You may have read about my and Tobie’s first encounter with Yann in her description of this pic. He wandered onto our land a couple of weeks ago, strolled around Daffodil Island a bit, then came back and befriended us. Recently, I’ve talked quite a bit with Yann, meeting up with him a couple of times to hang out.

Last night, I went to the Lounge of Dreams to dance and have some fun. It’s the club that Rosie and Brandy frequent, and while Rosie has been absent because of RL, I knew Brandy would be there and I’ve have someone to bug 🙂 While there, I got a tp request from Yann. I IMed him back and began talking with him. He seemed down, so I sent him a tp.

While at the club, Yann ended up on the stage, which scared me a bit. I tried to tell him through IM that he needed to get down, but it seemed like he wasn’t paying attention. I became a little worried he was going to be ejected or banned. Fortunately, he finally stepped off the stage . . . and moved me back several feet as he ran into me.

I spent the rest of my time at the Lounge of Dreams dancing with Yann and occasionally IMing Brandy. I sent Yann IMs, but he was entirely non-responsive, even when I told him I was getting ready to leave. Thinking that he was probably only paying attention to chat and not IMs, I sent him a tp after I went back home, and he soon arrived. Then I got an idea. I would take him to get a good, free skin and help him update his appearance. Before, he had been very resistent to changing anything, but after he almost got into trouble at the club (they had been having some griefers there recently, and some people were freaking out when they saw him get up on the stage), I thought it was worth another attempt. I wanted him to realize that people *would* react to him differently in SL because of his appearance.

I tped Yann to the SL Free*Style store in La Reina, and I got him to purchase the freebie male skin. After a lot of effort, I finally got him to put it on.

Even after putting on the new skin, Yann continued to talk about how he was satisfied with the way he had looked. I told him that there would be people who would not treat him as nicely because he looked like a newbie. His response was that I hadn’t. That made me think. What was I basing my belief about appearance on? Do people actually treat newbies poorly, or am I so wrapped up in my avie’s appearance that I made that assumption? Maybe Yann saw SL with fresh eyes and realized some things that I didn’t.

Then Yann accused me of being a guy.

Damn newbies.
