Observation of the Day (OOTD)

If you are my manicurist/hair dresser/bartender, don’t try to out-story me. If I’m telling you my woes or my triumphs, consider that one of the costs of doing business. Don’t share yours. Out-storying the client reduces the tip.

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. Years ago I was really stressed out. Two kids, big job, house renovations and all of the normal stresses of life had gotten to me. So, I scheduled a massage. The massage therapist spent the entire hour telling me about her abusive alcoholic boyfriend. I was sympathetic to her terrible situation but when I left I felt totally ripped off. Don’t out story the client indeed.

  2. *grin* I’ll have to hire you to be my attendant, @Honour, so you can warn them off for me.

    @Chestnut – that is EXACTLY how it went. Went off on a much needed solo vacation to the tropics. booked a mani/pedi and a massage. I mentioned casually why I’d gone away alone and the manicurist began an hour of conversation about her terrible home life, her step-mother, useless sisters, dealing as executor of her father’s will ad nauseum. soooo didn’t work for me. And you know what else??? It was a crummy manicure! She claimed it would last a week. Chipped the next day. She should have paid more attention to my nails than to her storyline.
