"Tasteful Bottom Picture" Meme News!

First, I have changed the date for the post with the picture of my bottom that I took in response to Marnix Malifozik's "Naked But Tasteful Butt Pics" meme in order to move it down further on the page. It is now the post for May 28, 2009.

I think Marnix was brilliant for thinking of the meme - it was simple and fun, but still a challenge. I have had so much fun checking out everyone's posts.

Now, on my post, I had suggested to Marnix that it would be fun to gather all of the pictures into one place and have an in-world art exhibit at a gallery somewhere. He likes the idea! We are working out some details now, but we need something from the participants - your pictures!

I have offered to help collect the pictures - you have several options to get your pictures to me:
  • Give me your permission to get your picture from your blog/website. (I do not want to do this without your OK because of the sensitive nature of the pics.)
  • Email me the picture. My email address is in the top right corner of my blog.
  • Drop a copy of it on me in-world. (The danger is that my IMs could cap and I would not get it.)
Now, we'll need to think of a good artsy name for the exhibit. I'll update you as I know more.

I would normally close this post with a smiley face, 'cause that's the way I roll. But this seems more appropriate: (_|_)

Two Things About Your SLife

I don't usually use pictures from 'real life' for my blog, but my typist would just not shut up about how cute she though this picture was.

Is the picture above a good representation of how you feel right now? Are you starting to feel like the weekend cannot arrive quickly enough? OK. You need a little diversion.

There is a "theory" that for every subject/profession, there are only two things that you really need to know. Everything else that is important about the topic is an offshoot of those two items. For example, to drive a car you only need to know two things; 1) don't hit anything, and 2) don't let anything hit you.

This can apply to our SL activites, too! Answer one or both of the following questions:
  • What are the two things you need to know in order to perform your Second Life profession or favorite activity?
  • What are the two things that you need to know to write your blog?
If you do not have a blog, please share your answers in my comments.

Here is my answer:

To write my blog, you only need to know two things*:

1) Never take yourSLelf too seriously.
2) If it is not fun to write, it won't be fun to read.

OK! Your turn!


I'll throw this
activity into the SL blogosphere and wish for the best.**

At worst, doing this entertained me during a boring conference call. At best, it'll entertain you and we'll learn a thing or two about you.

*Note that there is a #3 - when you are finished writing a post, look back over it and remove one sexual innuendo - but I don't want to break my own 'rules' right out of the starting gate.
**If you do this on your blog, you can just cut and paste what appears between the two lines above to your blog and remove my response.

But...but.. (NSFW...but tasteful)

This is my (hopefully) tasteful response to Marnix's Meme challenging people to post classy pictures of avatars showing their bottoms.

Perhaps someone enterprising (hint, hint) will collect all of these pics and make some sort of art exhibit somewhere called "BRB" or something clever?

Happy Saturday!

Too racy for earlier...

ETA: Aminasx Saiman has blogged about the event - complete with pictures!

I love this pic...but I thought it was kinda steamy and might make some people reluctant to come kiss me at the party today.

Jerremy and I
were playing around in the bridge set up in the party area. Poor guy. I was throwing pose balls around left and right and demanding he get on them. Hmmmmm....on second thought, maybe he liked that?

I am not a Trekkie, but I love any chance to play dress up! So I thought the chance to get into costume, study up and play space explorer was a blast! This is something my typist would not have the opportunity to do normally - that is one of the best things about Second Life!

Thanks to everyone who came and kissed me and the other kissers today! MMMWWWWAAHHH!

Lips...The Final Frontier

Tymmerie: So, Honey, Are you really ok with me doing a Relay For Life fund raising kissing booth at the RFL Star Trek Party on Sunday? I mean, last time I did this, we were only engaged.

Yes, Sweetheart it's fine. It’s to raise money! I mean, heh, it’s just going to be innocent pecks on the cheek, right?

T: Well, yea…some of them. But, you know the regular kisses make more money for RFL.

J: Define “regular...kiss.”

T: Well, the kind where lips actually touch.

I see. Go for volume then, Honey! Lots of cheek...pecks!

But, I get bigger donations for bigger kisses.

OK…ummm…..just kiss other...women!

T: You realize that lots of those are men in RL?

J: Darn! Well, then I am going to spread the rumor that you have Space...Cooties.

T: Nice try, but if I have Space Cooties, so do you.

J: Darn!

I promise the kisses will just be for fun and to raise money for charity. I am not going to run off with anyone.

Can I phaser...them?

T: No, Honey.

Vulcan nerve...pinch?

T: Maybe.

J: I just don’t want anyone trying to seek out your tongue and new places to grope. Or boldly go where only this man [points to himself] should be... going.

Got it, Sweetheart. And don’t worry, you will get a great big fat pack of kisses when I get home.

J: Make it so...Babe.

Please join us at the RFL Star Trek Party on
Sunday May 24th starting at 11:30 AM SLT

Thursday Happy: My Pixel Paradise

They say that the best things in life are free. Sigh. Well not this one, but it is definitely worth it.

This week’s Thursday Happy is my personal paradise: Jerremy’s and my island. On the corner of our land, there is a small tropical island surrounded by protected water. When we moved into the sim, Jerremy landscaped it and set up a crackling campfire on one side. We have an awesome hammock there, too. I love lying here listening to the waves. It is my little oasis. Gilligan has nothing on me.

There are even more reasons that our island makes me happy:

  • There are no cannibals.
  • Jerremy and I can use the island to play “The Professor and Mary Ann.” A very innocent game where we discuss making radios out of coconuts and debate the pros and cons of trying to build a raft.
  • SLwine Flu has not yet reached the island.
  • The bird and wave sounds drown out the voices in my head.
  • I get a kick out of seeing people on boats and jet skis go by. (But, I really need a waving animation to enjoy this fully.)
  • We get surprisingly few pirates.
  • Sometimes random people stop by and sit and relax on our island. (We can see them from our house.) I kinda like that. I like when they visit our garden, too.
  • Since my typist is landlocked, being there feels like a real mini-vacation.
  • It has enough vegetation on it that it is “clothing optional” for the most part.

And with that, I am going to go rest on my hammock and wait to be rescued...from RL. :-)

SEX! (Let's see if this works.)

Someone mentioned that to get more blog readers, I should use the word sex in my post titles. Also, something about llamas.

There are fancier, more attractive llamas on the grid. (IDK why.) But until I see how this works I am not going to drop a lot of Lindens on one. I still wonder if I should have enabled mature content to search for llamas on SLexchange (or whatever they are calling it now).

We'll see. Meantime, enjoy the sorbet.

So Fresh, So Clean

OK maybe the hand washing in SL thing is a bit of an odd blog topic. Sigh...not all of my posts are going to be winners. But, I like to think of this blog as the sorbet in a seven course meal of SLife - a palate cleanser for times when things get a little too eventful and emotion filled. (Or maybe this blog is cotton candy? Just a little sugar and hot air? IDK.)

Anyhoo, I wanted to share two hand washing pics that were shared with me:

Above, we have the lovely Sai Pennell of Imperial Elegance poses sudsing up at The Loft furniture store. Even though we cannot see her face, I promise that it is her. And I am sure she is smiling.

And, this is the apparently teeny, tiny Alicia Chenaux trying desperately to reach to the sink.

Alicia and Sai - thank you for playing along with my request for pics!! <3<3<3

Scenes from SL Washroom Tour '09

Low cut red dress: $200L. Sexy Updo Hair: $150L. Club Admission: $150. No one deciding to use that urinal while I wash up? Priceless. Seven Ultra Lounge

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Clean Hands Save SLives! (OK…I added the ‘SL’ to that…but still…) And that is why I embarked on my whirlwind tour of places to wash up and ward off dreaded diseases like SLwine Flu (which seems to be easing off some) and the Whine Flu (which I tend to get when other blogs get more hits than mine).

It was quite a challenge to find a restroom to wash up in that would not make you feel dirtier after washing than before. I was very sorry at first – I naively tried looking for the terms “restroom” and “bathroom” in SL search.* Ummm. Don’t do that. Trust me.

Out of sheer curiosity, I did end up visiting a couple of the places that made a point of advertising that they had restrooms. But shockingly enough, no one at [insert name of fetish club] or [insert name of sex resort] was washing their hands.

Now, I am no prude, but I realized that it would be better to search for places that would be likely to have restrooms but would not necessarily list them in their place descriptions. So, I started looking for spas, gyms, restaurants and bars. Bingo!

BTW, guess where I did not find a washroom? Ironically enough, CDC Island (home of the CDC in SL) had no sinks at all. No hand sanitizer. Nada. Just meeting facilities where I assume many germ covered SLientists and doctors will have virtual meetings, shake virtual hands and spread SLickness.

During my investigation of all things germy, I discovered this shocking fact: blogging and blog reading are terribly dangerous things to do!!!! This is because, apparently, a keyboard can have 5 times the germs of a toilet seat! ZOMG!!!! But that is ok because you can now buy a dishwasher safe keyboard. Whew!

In the end I learned a lot during my SL washroom tour. But what was the most important lesson of all? That if you plan to wash you hands in SL, you'd better bring your own soap.

I look very serene in this picture - but I was only moments away from chucking that bar of soap at a woman who suffered from SLight Flu - the need to wear a blindingly bright face light.

I asked Jerremy go check out the men's side of the restroom at Poetik near the Hotel Dare, but I think we could have gotten each other much cleaner in the coed shower there.

Here I am conducting a pretend orchestra while scrubbing up at the New Serentity Day Spa.

The peaceful, calm, beautiful Dorian Day Spa. But I was nervous. For some reason - I felt like the elephants wandering around outside would sense I was in there without an appointment and trample me as I left.

You can dance on the dance floor or on top of the bar, play pool and then wash up at the adorably detailed ladies' and men's rooms at Fat Daddy's. And actually, when this washing animation finishes, it sort of plops you onto the counter - so you can dance up there, too, and watch yourself in the mirror. Just don't SLip on any water.

Happiness is a Warm Blog

Mmmmmmm! Brain food! Do you know how difficult it is to find a bowl of alphabet soup with an eating animation? If you look closely, you'll notice that the one I did find has an awful lot of lower case Ls.

Question: What is in my SLife that is both an incredible source of personal fulfillment and a desperate cry for attention?
Answer: Blogging!

I sat down to a romantic dinner with my Alphabet Soup for Writers yesterday and thought about all of the topics I am working on for my blog. (Jerremy was not in-world at the time or he would be there eating that romantic meal with me.) It struck me how terribly happy my blog makes me. So, of course it is this week's Thursday Happy!

Blogging is a big part of my SLidentity. Blog writing is a creative outlet and an intellectual challenge for me. Looking back and seeing that I have done x# of posts since I started this blog is so satisfying. Even little things like coming up with a good title is exciting to me. Clicking on the publish button makes my girl parts tingle. I am sure other bloggers feel the same way...well, unless they have boy parts.

I'd be writing for no reason at all without you, though. So, thank you for my happy!

This is why...

If Jerremy comes down with SLavian Flu, well, this is why.
(Wait...or is SLavian flu something going around Gor? I get so confused.)

Note: If he does get sick, I promise to nurse him back to full health. He is no copy/no mod/no transfer/no wonder I love him so much - so I need to be very careful with him.
