The past few days.

Ok, so I've been kind of a bad blogger lately. I've been lazy. Plus I joined Snapzilla because I wanted to comment on Brody's pics and now I've been cluttering up my page with pictures. LOL I hate hate hate hate hate how low res they are there, though. HATE. But it's still amusing to me right now, so I'm playing with it.

This week I DJed an anniversary party for my friends Night & Margo. One year together in SL!! I met them both around the same time they were getting together, and they've always been just so kind to me, so it was wonderful to get to DJ for them.

Anniversary party

In between parties and doing an enormous amount of shopping, I've been trying to redecorate our home. My friends are AMAZING at decorating. I'm afraid that's a skill I don't have, in SL or RL. I just signed up for a subscription to Elle Decor, so maybe I'll learn something when the magazines start rolling in. But until then, I just go to furniture stores, stare blankly at what's there, and go buy shoes. If you guys have store recommendations, I'd love to hear them. I already know Mudhoney, The Loft, Instinct, Corn, and Mudshake.

When I'm not doing all of that, I've been getting to spend more time with Brody lately. You all can't imagine how happy that makes me. At the risk of sounding too incredibly mushy... when he's with me, everything just seems so much better.


But when he's not with me, I need a friend. And while the girls are great and I adore them to bits, I can't always depend on them to come hang out with me whenever I'm bored. So I went and got myself a new friend who will be there whenever I want her to be.


Isn't she PRECIOUS?! My beautiful new cream tabby, named Elle, for Elle Woods. I love Elle Woods! When she got Chutney to confess to killing her own father just by talking about perms...oh it was beautiful. So my kitten's name is Elle. :) And I love her. Just LOVE her. She bounces and meows and plays with toys bigger than she is and eats a lot of food and wears's just CUTE. I even got together last night with Khari, Nikki, and Sehra and all their animals and we had a little party with our pets bouncing around.

So yes, for the most part, my SL has been going so well, I have pretty much not had time to blog. But then last night as I was getting ready to go to bed, I learned one of my closest friends was preparing to leave SL. I don't really know why, and I respect her enough to not pry, but I can't tell you how sad I was. She's totally been there for me and my SL is a little less fun without her there. I'm only hoping that she will just decide it's a break and come back, because we love her so much and will miss her terribly if she truly leaves us. I have her email, and will be bothering her, but right now I'm giving her time to breathe. We all need space and time to breathe to recharge, and I love her enough to let her have that. If you're reading this, remember that we love you so much and we will be here whenever you need us to be. We're not going anywhere. <3

I feel another shopping binge coming on.

Hmmm...what is it about SL blogger's that make them the "guru's" of SL and all the people in it!? Your posts used to have some heart in them. You used to give your feelings. Now, they are...not you! They are plain and plastic. You are searching for something to write. Is your RL bf Brody? If not, what makes you happy to be with Brody and not your rl bf? Some of these things are a mystery to me...I am not trying to antagonize...just curious.

I love Elle! She's cute! My sweet friend Pippi bought me one of those kittens from AI for Valentine's Day. Do you know that they will interact with other AI pets? I also have the corgi. They are so sweet! And did you know they grow? Enjoy it!

Also - Check out this blog for a great furniture store review: The store is called "My Own Worst Enemy", I haven't checked it out yet but I fully intend to. It looks great.

Well i also wonder what is wrong lately. It seems that with Levi leaving sl you changed completely to a new person. Is Brody Levi?
I am sorry for being so curious too, dont be angry with me, please :)

Alicia - I kind of want to tell you to ignore that first poster. (Personally, I am not amused that he/she accused bloggers of thinking of themselves as "gurus" of SL.) I still enjoy your blog. And I think you add so much to SL - and I *know* that you add enjoyment to my SL.

You have not changed so much as matured in SL. We all do!

OMG - I know of a couple of cute furniture stores but for the life of me I cannot think of the names of them (I am at work). I will grab my landmarks and send them to you when I log in tonight.

I read the anon comments and wanted to immediately defend Ali. Then I realized...her real friends who love her..know who she is. Ali doesn't need anyone to defend her...she is amazing as is. I will say one thing though, the amazing woman behind Alicia is all heart.

Tymmerie and Sophia said it the best.

Plus Don't let the "Anonymous" comment bother you. They are just talking out their ass. =)

<3 and hugs

OMG people change?!
Blogs change without asking permission of readers?! :O

I've also changed, and damn proud of it, why would you strive to be the same person you were a year ago or 10 years ago unless that is the peak of your maturity level?

Tell you what people, you try it, and try to maintain the pace, and the tone and whatever the hell else the world demands of you, day after day, week after week, and don't ever make a mistake or change, ever.

Let's see you try it! Remember now... don't be too sweet or else you are plastic. Don't have an opinion or else you are a drama queen. While you are at it, don't tell us what's going on in your life or you are craving attention. On the other hand, you better not keep anything private or you are deceptive. Oh, and don't forget to be entertaining every.damn.time.

It boils down to this...

Don't like the posts? Don't read the blog! If this seems like rocket science to have bigger issues.

Attacking the blogger themselves, ridiculous to the extreme.

I'm ranting in Ali's comments but it's not just to defend Ali, or to respond to these particular comments, it's a topic in general that as you might be able to tell pisses me the hell off. So if anyone would like to discuss this further you know how to reach me.

C said...

Oh Hai!
I got more to say.

Please remember that every single word you read on any blog is a privilege. Bloggers are under no obligations to write anything, let alone things you agree with or find entertaining or informative. In fact they don't even have to be true. So unless you are personally paying someone to write something then repeat after me, every word you read on a blog is a privilege.

Acting like you are entitled to know anything is really ignorant. Asking for RL information? That just borders on creepy stalker behaviour.

I'm going to go back to my quiet semi-retired corner of cyber space now, please don't make me come out again.

I love all your blogs. Ali you are awesome ;)

Cen, GTF over yourself. Who gives a shit what you think, and yes, I agree with the first anon blogger. Alicia is just fake.

So her life is complete with her virtual boyfriend Brody or levi or whoever it is.. bet that makes her RL BF feel like a dream.. does he know your life is just right when he is there?? I think you need a long hard look in the mirror... and while you are out making fun of all those noobs.. why don't you sweep out your own steps first.

Cristopher Lefavre said...

Hmm, seems some readers here don't know the first thing of having a second life, nor of blogging it.

Alicia, you have a very nice blog; its cool to read what others are doing in SL, but at the same time you reveal just enough about yourselves "behind your av face" to make it real too.

Hope these comments don't get you too down, and keep it up!
