Occupy the Floor
Just the other day, I was reading a book called The Millionaire's Handbook, which supposed to be a guide to faking it until you make it and presenting yourself as one of the 1%. I'm pretty happy that I only borrowed it from the Amazon Prime Lending Library and didn't have to actually pay for it, because so far, the advice is fairly ridiculous. I'm not going to start trolling laundromats in hopes that some millionaire who doesn't own their own washer and dryer has left an Armani catalog behind so I can snag it for free and learn how to dress.
There actually is a reason I am talking about the "book" in a SL blog - lo and behold the author briefly referenced Second Life and SL fashion! This got me wondering if the author is a SLifer, too. After all, she must know a little about SL to talk about the shopping fix you can get from buying virtual fashion.
Anyway, this is a photo of me, taking the "author"'s advice and living it up by wearing my colorful, trendy virtual fashion - while in RL, I am dressed in severe head to toe black and not letting anyone important examine my watch too closely.
I am also living it up virtually by drinking coffee on my the floor. You can't drink coffee on the floor in RL because you will choke or burn your face off. Burning your face off will apparently cause you to be shunned by the 1% almost as much as not subscribing to Vanity Fair.
This blog post is also my demonstration of just how festive a Linden home can be if you are willing to forgo things like seating and decor. This tree may be the only thing we can fit into the house, but if it was a sex tree (which it is not) Jerremy and I would be totally set until Boxing Day, at least. Or the end of Kwanza. Maybe even Three Kings Day. What I am trying to say is, please, someone, make a sex Christmas tree.
Because I am sure the 1% didn't get to be the 1% by buying things that only do one thing at a time. I'm pretty sure that if I had read the whole stupid Millionaire's Handbook that advice would have been in there, too.
