Aww, look at me sitting sweetly by, just as innocent as a lamb, while Aldwyn is evil and pushes a girl who was Away out of the store and into the nearby pond.

I am SO innocent.

No...I was NOT laughing for 10 minutes while it was all going on. I'm innocent, I tell you!!

There's no itch at 7 months

You know, I'm really going to have to start spending more time in SL if I expect to keep blogging. :-p I haven't been taking a break, really, but I haven't been in much lately because ... well, I don't know. I don't have a real reason, I guess. I'm just tired a lot with the new workout schedule and everything RL that has to be done. By the end of the evening, I kinda don't have it in me to log in. But I'm sure that will change eventually. It always does and when I am able to pop in lately, I remember how much I love it, so things will balance out. That's the way it goes.

Yesterday was Aldwyn's and my 7 month anniversary. I didn't log in because I was pretty beat and by the time he would have been able to log in anyway, I would have been falling asleep at the keyboard. But I did get to see him for a bit on Saturday night and it reminded me, again, why I'm with him.


A lot of people try to "own" you when they're with you, whether it's friendships or relationships, Second Life or not. I'll laugh and tease and say "Oh back off, that person is MINE!" sometimes, but I will never try to own them. I'll never try to put someone I say I care about down or make them feel bad because they aren't who I want them to be in that moment. Yeah, I might be disappointed sometimes, but that's the way it goes and if I love them, then I will love them regardless. If I ever fall short of this - well, I am human, after all.

Aldwyn never tries to own me. We are together, but he lets me be exactly who I am. If I'm bratty, if I'm happy, if I'm upset, he takes it all and lets me be who I am in that moment. But probably even more important than that, he lets me play. There is almost no greater gift that anyone can give me than that. He lets me run around and giggle and not always be a fashionista.

Me: Wow. I'm a hot mess.

Aldwyn: Yeah, but you're my hot mess.

Me: *gasps!*

Aldwyn: Oh no...

I haven't been myself lately. Part of it is just the season and part of it is other things going on in my offline world. But when I can come into SL and just let go, and know that he's going to be right there beside me, enjoying me whether I'm laughing like a fool or ranting like there's no tomorrow... well, you can see why I've been with him for 7 months now. ♥

Well that's interesting!

So as I've mentioned before, I have chronic anxiety. It's tolerable most of the time and I can "fix" myself with music or games if I choose not to go the medicine route, which is often since I hate pills. But when I can't fix it...oh man. And it was sure sky high this past weekend. So high, I couldn't really even talk to people, so I kept myself mostly offline.

Well, Aldwyn [who must be going for sainthood since he puts up with me] decided last night since I was feeling up to being in SL, that we should go exploring. And where better to go exploring than mainland, am I right? Okay, well, I don't think he planned on us exploring mainland, but once we teleported to some ... garden or something, and my xanax kicked in, we had to just keep going!

Because for real? Where else BUT mainland are you going to see this kind of beauty?

Oh, mainland.

There's a lot of pictures here, folks, so if you hate pictures, just move along. :)

So one thing that's kind of cool about mainland is that there seems to be a lot of "old" there if you just walk around. Old buildings, old textures...just old. Like these prim animals!

Retro style

They were on sale for free, so I bought them.

As we were walking, we came to a "rest stop." You can get poutine on mainland! Who knew?

Mainland Poutine

Also, on mainland, some of the shops have really OLD things for sale. Like couches that are made basically from prim blocks, not even the more cushiony toruses. [Oh, wikipedia says it's "tori" when it's plural. I'm learning!] And they're EXPENSIVE. So either the person honestly thinks that they just made the most awesome prim couch ever, or they left SL and don't remember that they have that junk there.

There's also a ton of poseballs just hanging out. I can't resist so we had to try a lot of them so I could see what they were.


Aldwyn: "How did you spend your Monday night? Oh you know. Hanging out with my girlfriend and chilling with a unicorn."

Then we came across...well, this.

I think there WAS a store...

We're pretty sure there was PROBABLY a store there once, but now there is not, and so it's like a big floating marketplace of crap. Ugly does not begin to describe it.

But what is a trip to mainland without running into THIS guy?

Hey, it's 2006 all over again!

No shirt. Asshole pose. Dante skin and OC hair from Naughty Designs. Oh baby, it's 2006 all over again.

Upon meeting this guy, we somehow crossed from just mainland into Zindra, because we ended up at some place called Sexdreamz. You know putting a Z at the end makes it awesome. This girl was there dancing her ass off in the champagne glass. It said she was staff there, but she never spoke, so I'm assuming bot. Especially wearing that Shy Carmelle skin that should have died a sad death in 2007.

This skin should die

You can buy a lot of stuff at Sexdreamz, including this bed for only $5999L.

Well that's how you know it's for gay people.

Love don't come cheap.

Aldwyn: "It's very rainbow."
Me: "That's how you know it's for gay people."

Because, you know. OBVIOUSLY if you're gay, you only like big bright rainbow stuff.

You can also buy this couch for $999L.

It's only $999L!

I guess sitting doesn't come cheap either.

I'm a huge sucker for tours in SL. I love love love when a place has some kind of tour thing to ride on. Sexdreamz has a hot air balloon, so naturally we had to take a ride!

Riding in a balloon

But I guess whoever owns the balloon tour has never actually TAKEN the tour, because somewhere in this oh so lovely mall, the tour ended. Badly.

No more ride!

Our explorations ended soon after that because it was late and we were both yawning like crazy. [Well, after we sat on a giant naked lady and I ran the circuit at a puppygirl store.] It was a good night, and I laughed so much, which truly did more for my spirit than the xanax did. Of course, it always does. :)

I dunno.

I don't know what to blog lately. I know I should blog. I want to blog. But it's hard to blog when everything is just nice. I'm slowly slowly getting back into the style blogging groove. I've been really busy with the whole weight loss thing. I started playing The Sims 3, which is fun and a little addicting, but not as much as it used to be back before SL. Things are just good and that makes for some writers block over here, although I'm writing like a fiend in my RL blog.

Maybe I should start the 365 day project again. LOL

Okay, let's not go that far yet.

Anyway, last night before I fell asleep, I was messing around with a picture in photoshop. It's pretty, but not as great as I wanted. Maybe I'll try again later. Or throw the unedited picture up in Flickr and see if anyone wants to fix it. Who knows. :)
