In MY gardenI’m going to buy a sim.
I’m going to fill it with flowers, trees, bushes, grass.
All the textures are going to be 1024 x 1024.
Every plant will be made of flexi prims.
The colors will be warm. Not a gray wall in sight.
There will be beaches.
There will be meditative gardens with sculptures.
It will be crammed with things pleasing to my eye.
Bamboo and I will sit amid the flowers and be happy.
I don’t care if you lag.
I don’t care if you can’t move.
It’s my sim.
And we’re doing it my way.

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. I can’t wait to come and stand around in your sim! I would want to explore but since the lag will be jellotastic I am sure I won’t be able to move.

    On a serious note, I hear your frustration and I am sorry you are feeling that way.

  2. Aww hon I’m sorry your feeling frustrated. Let me know when you want to buy a sim. 🙂 We can put it next to the Crown so you can have your flowers and not have to go far to play with friends. *giggles*

  3. Okay, maybe the frustration factor is being overplayed. it’s not so much frustration. i think what is happening is that i am discovering that i, too, have a vision. *grin* i have an incredible amount of freedom to do what i want, build what i want. i guess i’m just being greedy – and seeing what i COULD do. i understand and agree with the constraints. i mean – most people DO want to be able to move about. *grin* and this build is for a purpose, not just my personal amusement.

    so – yeah, there is some frustration. (i guess these folks don’t realize that it’s SUPPOSED to be all about ME.) but mostly it’s still – OMG – this is wonderful, i can’t believe i get to do this. *grin*

  4. LOL, are you really? No kidding?

    /me tries to suppress the envy – hope I get to see all those flowers sometimes – even if I have to lie still in the fields of gold instead of walking them 🙂

  5. @Cris – ah well, i can dream, right???? *grin* i suspect that as long as i get to build for work the way i do, i can probably resist the urge to buy my own sim. or so my personal finances hope….. 🙂
