Bob in All His Glory

Written 5 June, 2011

Bob in All His Glory

Near the center of Whimsy Sweetie has built a temple for the worship of our drinking bird Bob.

Bob himself is 30 feet tall. At the temple he's represented by a miniature, which erm, bobs.

Why worship Bob?

Why not?

Big Bob

This is Only a Test

I've just linked this blog to my Twitter and Facebook accounts. From now on when I post a message with a link will be sent to both accounts.

This is a test.

This is only a test.

In the event of an actual emergency I would have already headed for the hills.

Do You Like My Hair?

One of the hardest things about photographing a fashionista spy is taking pictures that don't reveal her true identity.

Do You Like My Hair?

Chey, do you like my hair?



Stop glamcamming yourself and answer my question. Do you like my hair?

Erm.... sure.

You hate it.

No I don't.

You hate it!

Well, it IS a little... spiky.





How about this one?

Does it come with fire insurance?

I hate you.

Do you like my coat?

It's a little... huge, isn't it?


Uh-oh. I blew it again, didn't I?


Do you like my outfit?


... although the train's a little long, isn't it?



Do you like my face?

I don't know. Would you take your mask off so I could see it?


Well, I'm sure I'd like your face if it were visible.

How does this skin look on me?

It looks totally hot.

Finally, a complement! :)

But you're totally unrecognizable.


 Do you like my kisses?


Cafe + Green Gables

Cafe Green Gables

Last weekend, as Sweetie and I were grid-hopping, we stopped by Cafe + Green Gables, where I got a picture of the above avatar. She was sitting at a table talking to two stuffed rabbits and Brunhilde.

It was a lovely place. That's us in the background on horseback.

I Work on the Swamp

I tweaked the little swamp on Whimsy today-- added a crane and a red-eared turtle and this lurking alligator.

Chey Flies Up

Written 5 June, 2011

Chey Flies Up

Sometimes I like to set midnight and just fly as high as I can into the sky.

My Mystitool makes little colored poofy particles to keep me company.

I'm not going anywhere, I'm just flying to be flying.

Four and a half years in Second Life, and I still love to fly!

Male Behind a Female

Written 5 June, 2011

Male Behind a Female

Lately I've been seeing avatars at Help Island Public wearing a tag that reads "Male Behind a Female."

In chat, these folks make no bones about playing female avatars. I like that they're up front about it.

There doesn't seem to be a group by that name, though. Must just be the role they were given in the group. Next time I'll look at profiles and see if I can identity the group. There have been times I saw people being open about playing cross-gendered characters, and they had no support. I'd like to be able to steer folks to the group.

I've no idea why the avi on the right seems to have two names and two tags in the second photo. Probably just a glitch.

Blog on Demand

Photo by Sweetie at Cafe Green Gables on the Luck Sim
"You haven't written me a blog post in a long time. I'm feeling neglected. You know your blog is our semi-public love forum."

"I know, Sweetie. I've not been in world much because of my sore leg."

"That's hardly an excuse. You don't type with your leg."

"Okay, I, uh, I think I have some photos from our explorations last weekend. I'll write up our adventures. Will that do? I'll  do it first thing tomorrow."

"No, I want a blog now!"

"Now? As in right now?"

"Yes. Now."

"I love it when you stamp your little size zero foot."

"I know you do. Now write me a blog!"

"While we're still talking in Skype?"

"Yes. Right now. I want a blog on demand."

"A blog in real time?"

"Yes. A live blog."

"But we've not done anything. I can't think what I would say."

"Silly Chey, I'm giving you your blog right now."

And so she did.
