V for Veenya

V for Veenya -



It’s not that Veenya has a particularly exhausting job or anything. It’s not that she needs a tan. It’s not even that she wanted to show off this gorgeous bikini. It’s just that going on vacation sounds like such a treat, no matter where or why you do it. So on vacation she went.

If you’re looking for her, you’ll probably find her in some resort, soaking sun on the beach or playing in the water. Occasionally she’ll grab a coconut drink from the bar, but mostly she just wants to relax. She hopes y’all have a great summer and that you have some time for vacation this year.

Fragments of the Old World


Some of you know about my obsessive fascination with everything post-apocalyptic. I spend an inordinate amount of time mulling over different end of the world scenarios, imagining what I would do if shit hit the fan. (Yes, I’m a prepper.) Whether it’d be to famine, to freak nature phenomenon or plain old zombie attacks, I find it morbidly thrilling.

I integrate this in to my Second Life through my RP alt, but lately I haven’t spent that much time on her. I’d like to change that, so I’m asking you good folks, where can I find some post-apocalyptic RP sims?

Bananas for Pineapples


I went roaming around at some events the other day and it seemed like they were all telling me that a pineapple outfit would be the best thing ever. I don’t know what even happened, usually yellow is not my color, but this time I felt like this was the most awesome and fun thing ever. And now I’m craving pineapple.

I saw a dress and it was purple with palm trees. And then I saw shoes with pineapples. And I thought Miami. Not because it’s the only place in the world with various summer like things, but because I’m apparently longing to go back. And why shouldn’t I? It was nice with friends and beaches and truffle brie pastries. I don’t know that I would actually go in the middle of summer on account of the risk of dying from heat stroke, but maybe in the fall. There is a certain someone who has promised me a trip to Diagon Alley…

Something old…

… and blue. Still battling my inventory. I found this cardigan in the depths and being the type of person I am, I immediately stopped sorting and put together an outfit with it. Cobalt and Orange looks SO good together, so I know why I bought. Question is, why didn’t I blog it? I bought it over a year ago! Pretty much half my inventory is like this, stuff I bought to blog, but never did. I have a problem.

The Return

Finally, I’m back. My brand new rig is here, I’ve gotten it to behave to my preferences (mostly) and I am happier than ever. It’s a lot to get used to though, like this keyboard that just feels so tough compare to my laptop. And the fact that I went from 17 inch screen to 24 inch kinda blows my mind.


One of my main problems was a bit of a stupid one. My shadows were too sharp. No amount of blurring would help. It was like my new fancy graphics card just HAD to show me what it could do. I finally found a debug setting buried in the advanced menu though and I think this picture turned out really well in the end. I’m very happy with it.

I thought I’d show you the difference between the picture raw and the picture after I’ve edited it. So click here to go to a gif I made that shows the difference, if you’re interested.

One of the first things I did when I logged back on after over a week away from SL was get myself a brand new outfit. You could her my relieved sigh a mile away, I’m sure.

A tragedy

A tragedy of epic proportions has befallen my poor laptop. The other day she just stopped working out of the blue. Well, maybe not entirely out of the blue, but I wasn’t expecting a fried mobo… Anyway, this means that my only online presence for a while will be via tablet, so no blogging for a while. I’m waiting for my new customized desktop to get here from California. This is the last picture I took before my baby died. Saved to the cloud, thankfully. You’ll have to excuse the lack of slurls though, I hope you understand.

Vintage Bronze


Everything about this picture is vintage, at least in the fast paced world of SL. I took it January, when I was still trying to sort my inventory. Don’t ask mehow it’s going. Anyway, I cam upon this gown that I had bought who knows when but never blogged. It’s the Amelia Lace Gown from Ison, with a slit that can kill.

If you look carefully you’ll see I’m wearing my old skin, I’m actually even wearing the classic avatar body. How’s that for vintage? Anyway, I’m going to start sorting again soon, so maybe more vintage posts from the depths of my inventory will show up.
