Yes, I'm still short.

I was out shopping tonight and I was standing there looking at the little dog when this woman came and got near me. And it wasn't like she was just walking by close. It was very deliberate. I don't know who she was, and she didn't say a word to me. Maybe she reads this blog and wanted to be in one of my "Wow, I really am short" pics? Or maybe she was just measuring herself up against me. I don't know...but she WAS really tall. And she's stepping on that poor dog. She got closer to me after I took this pic, but I turned and walked to the side.

Still short.

Oh, I finally took the plunge and started a group tonight. It's not really an update group, but more of a "Hey, wanna be in my group" group. But I'll still have updates for the store in there, and tell people where I'm partying and maybe freebies and all that good stuff. It's not open enrollment right now since there seems to be a lot of spamming for Brazilian malls lately, but if you want in, just let me know. It's not a group to be in if you don't like random chats. :)

Mr. Kitty is giving me the stink-eye, so I think it's time to wrap up and go to bed. I've been reading the book "Snow Crash" before bed lately, and I think it's giving me odd dreams. Still, I'm enjoying it, and I didn't think that I would. I think I've mentioned it before, but it's the book that was kind of the foreground for things like SL. Pretty cool stuff.

lol I wonder if she saw you! (just kidding) Being short myself, I often feel like I am surrounded by Amazons! Maybe we need to start a support group - short people unite!

creepy! stand-too-close people kind of creep me out. personal space is necessary to me, even in pixel form. :P i TP'd right into the middle of someone who was on away mode last night, and that was weird for me.

OK i'm happy i'm not the only one blinded by the new release candidate. I want my old gray menus back! I spent SO MUCH TIME trying to find a way to change it, but couldn't. is it seriously that way from now on? no change backies? crud.

YES, a group that actually talks! I'm so in!! ^__~

And that woman... tall, AND buff! Notice how her arm is almost as wide as your head? Don't want to arm wrestle her....

I have to admit that I started out as a noob amazon myself, but I am in Giant Amazon Recovery and like being shorter! And I would love to be in your group please! Oh, and one more thing, I love your blog! Thanks! - Bettye Dugan

Margo - Yes, we shorties need to stick together! Then we can just stand on top of each others shoulders and form like, a big short people fighting robot. LOL

Aisuru - Oh, I agree. I only want people that I care about in my personal space and I'll admit to standing closer to my friends than they'd probably like. :) But for a stranger to do it and not even talk to me, it's weird. And there is a way to change the new viewer by downloading something else. If you look at the comment Quaintly left me on the "My Eyes!" post, she gives a couple of links.

Andria - Expect a group invite soon. :) And she IS! I think she could be a lady wrestler or something. LOL

Bettye - Group invite coming your way. :) And you know, you CAN be tall in SL without being overwhelming. Cen is tall, but she's not an Amazon and I don't feel mega-short next to her. Well, unless I'm in flats and she's in tall boots. LOL

sweet! consider it installed.

i know i'm just some strange person who reads your blog, but could I maybe get in the group too? every group i'm in starts hollering when someone talks. I was even in a group of people who are my neighbors, otherland group landowners, just for chatting-only no one ever did. :(

Invite coming your way. :) And if people start yelling because someone talks in this group, I'll kick out the yeller. LOL
