Channelling Imelda Marcos

Confession time. I channel Imelda Marcos. I LOVE shoes. I REALLY LOVE boots. Now in FL sometimes atomic reality interferes with these loves. My foot and the shoe aren’t compatible. My wallet and the shoe aren’t compatible. But in SL – oh, I am in boot and shoe heaven!!!! I was prancing about in my brand new Lola boots the other day, having agonized over which pair would be my treat for that particular shopping trip. My friend S pointed out that for $20 I could buy most all the boots and shoes I wanted. I said that I understood that but she was SUPPOSED to be admiring my self-restraint! She laughed and ask Why self-restraint? I told her because it was good practice. 🙂 More importantly – buying boots is like eating fine chocolate. You want to savor the experience. You want to taste every last little molecule. You don’t want to blunt the effect by hurling some other sensation on top of the chocolate sensation. Mmmmmm. Draw it out. Enjoy it. Let it linger on your tongue. Same with boots. 🙂 Get one new pair. Buy an outfit to show off the new boots. Wander about. Strike a pose. Dance. Make those boots one with yourself. 🙂 Oh yes, my boots are akin to a spiritual experience as well as a totally sybaritic pleasure. Shoes are good too, don’t get me wrong, but to REALLY make my day – give me a new pair of boots!!!

So now I wake each morning and I want to wear Ahuva’s boots!!!! I look in my closet and there are boots, but they are not as nice as HER boots!!!! I want my SL boots in RL!!!!! I NEED my SL boots in RL!!! I can’t stand this deprivation anymore!!! I WILL succeed! If I don’t respond to your emails or IM’s or your phone calls you know where I am – I am googling boots! 🙂

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. Well Ahuva in the words of Des and I–I would normally compliment you and say, “Nice Gams”.

    But, the rumor troll at NCi has it that I am on the ban watch list because I am so much of a player that egos are getting bruised there. So, I have to my take compliments off the beach–GO FIGURE!

    So, I will reform myself and say, ” Meh, you look ok!”.


  2. Embrace your inner Imelda. Go forth and buy boots! I have recently become a boot whore. Go to Jaywalk if you haven’t already. I highly recommend them. Go Now!!

    I think your looking quite smexy in those boots m’dear. Maybe I’ll come down to NCI and we can show off our boots? The old I’ll show you mine if you show me yours??? 😉 LOL

  3. Woo woo! I hardly ever wear boots (or shoes) myself, but I like you showing off yours. 🙂

  4. @Z – feel free to compliment me anytime! 🙂 I am strong enough to deal with compliments!!!!

    @Bailey – DEAL! Slip on your fav boots and come join me. We’ll strut the boardwalk together! Calling all Imelda-wannabees! 🙂 I’ll hit Jaywalk next time I’m in. I’ve been buying up boots at Elle et Lui in Monte Carlo. I have my eyes on my next treat – a pair of lavender mid-calf boots.

    @Dale – Bailey and I will post a notice so you can participate as spectator in the Sexy Boot Strut!

  5. Its a deal Ahuva! I will compliment you as my instinct regulates! But, I may need you to sign a waiver first to show the Nci people who’s ego I have deflated~

    But, we are here on your turf now, so in the words of the immortal Billy Crystal when he WAS funny–“You look Mah-va-lous!”.

  6. Tell ya what Ahuva, bring Dave over to the Crown and he can compliment at will. 🙂

  7. Well Imelda hehe I love the boots 🙂 and I think you should get them lavender ones too 🙂 am not really into self restraint when it comes to clothes and shoes lol

  8. Put on your gorgeous new white boots, Issy, and join Bailey and me when we do our Sexy Boot Strut!
