I stopped in at North Keswick Press today. I needed to pick up some free postcards. I noticed a new book had been published by Klaus, so I picked up a copy of “Survivor” for my Bookclub. Now, I should explain that on Secondlife, you publish a book by buying a blank book, and adding your own story and artwork. It can be as many pages as you need.
We met at the coffee shop to talk over the book. Alice said she would like more romance next time. But Mr. Pety thought it was the best book he had read all year, except for Brian Freeman’s latest mystery. “Alter Ego.”
I must have jiggled the camera when I tried to take a closeup of the photos in the book because I made the print look blurry. It’s not blurry at all.
A new head and body can cost thousands of linden dollars, but I found a free one today. It was an advertised hunt. All you had to do was find a coconut. The hunt was easy, but getting dressed in the new body was hard work. And my face didn’t look like me. The lips were especially annoying. Let me give you a view of the new body and the old.
And then my clothing did not fit right, so I put everything back in the box until tomorrow. Update: The next time I worked on it, I was more experienced with fitting clothes and I am now quite pleased. So I should make sure to give out this landmark where I found it. It’s on the WOH hunt. Find a coconut half, near the champagne.
People love to take chances playing gacha machines on Secondlife. I hardly ever bothered, but I discovered some cute cats. I am on my way to become a gacha cat addict. Is there a cure? Now these are not animated cats; just statues. But sooo cute! My collection so far consists of two. Maybe I should stop now.
Oh that’s not me in the picture. That one of my collection of mesh ladies. Hmmm. Am I addicted to collecting mesh ladies also? Maybe.
“Come over and help me at Placebo Gallery, Meka. I need someone to pose for me. It’s for a portrait contest. ”
“Why don’t you go shoot yourself, LOL,” she replied.
“Well, come give me moral support while I figure it out, then,” I insisted.
“There are some good backgrounds here, but it’s a closeup I need. Why don’t we try over by those heads there? You sit down and I will zoom in.”
“Veyot, are you still here? You haven’t said a word for three minutes.”
“Yep, I am here but I was upping my graphics and changing the windlight. Sorry I took so long. I got a snapshot now. What do you think?”
“OMG. Can I have it to use for my profile shot? But I don’t really want to see it hanging on the wall.”
“Yeah, I know what you mean. I think this calls for more planning–more fantasy, more special effects. But thanks for helping today!”
