Seems only fair...

There is a, contest, fun little game going around on many of the fashion blogs, bout "What's in your bag!". Given that I don't HAVE a bag, I kinda felt left out.

So, I decided to extend the fun, to a "What's in your pockets!" game.

So here is what is in MY pockets.

1) Two sets of keys...cause..I drive two cars.

2) Two Flash drives...cause I have more stuff than fits on one flash drive

3) Leatherman. Cause you never know what tool you will need.

4) Chewing gum.

5) Wallet that is soo old, that I will not even open it up to show you. I just hate shopping for wallets!

6) Sprint Wireless Cell card, for those times when I just cannot find a land ISP.

7) Pile of paperwork, receipts and notes that I REALLY need to go through, and probably will after I am done with this post.

Now, aren't you glad you know?

Who is next!


I have been hearing and reading about how people that don't understand SL think its JUST a game.

For those of us who know better, I am not gonna rehash all of those discussions, because not only do I not want to be redundant, but for those of us who know, its like trying to explain love to someone who has never been in it, or sex to someone who has never had it. You just cannot explain it.

So, why am I writing all of this? Well, because there is one aspect of this "game" that I have touched on before, but always seems to get overlooked.

This "game" elicits REAL emotions in people. Sometimes good, sometimes bad, sometimes between. I cannot tell you how many times I have come into SL, and not been in the best of moods, but either something, or someone inworld, made me laugh, smile, and genuinely raised my spirits.

I am not saying that SL is the ONLY "game" that does this. Emotions are a big part of any game, usually to the players detriment (i.e. poker, if you show your emotions, you lose). But on the other hand, the rush of winning a game, is nothing to shake a stick at..(nudge nudge)

In its simplest terms, SL is enough of an environment to connect with our emotional selves. The visual, audio, textual inputs all touch us in many many ways. It can be as simple as playing with a SL pet, to make a RL smile appear on a otherwise frowny face.

So for all those people who don't "get" it, try not to worry about it. They might someday, but till then, you can take solice in the fact, that you know something they don't. And that in itself, should make you smile.

Now go out, RL or SL, and have some FUN!

Hell explained by a Chemistry Student

(HAD to share this...made me laugh!)

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid term.

The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well:

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave.

Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today.

Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's
Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct......leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."


Lazy/Buzy Times!

I don't know about you, but I seem to spend a lot of time, just standing around in SL.

I don't mean that in a bad way, but I talk to people...A LOT! Or I am doing something either in my inventory, with scripts, writing notecards to people offline, or working on something in RL that may PERTAIN to SL, but not really DOING anything in SL at that particular time.

For a while I was content with just standing around, because really...its NOT like my legs are gonna get tired, right?

Well, I got bored with that, so I decided to find some nice chairs for my place. That worked pretty well. But I am not always AT my place, when I have time?

So, I made sure I had some good SIT animations in my AO, so if I happen to be someplace else I could just grab a seat...and rest *grins.

That works out pretty well, but recently I have been kinda feeling a bit bored with just sitting. I have been feeling that I wanted something a bit more.

So, as I tend to do, I was browsing XSTREET and came across this GREAT little item. It's an attachment...that allows you to JUGGLE! Yes, thats right...JUGGLE! I am having such a BLAST with it! And you don't even have to worry bout REZ rights, cause...(drum roll please)..Its an attachment!

This little toy was created by Sway Dench. As I always do, I tracked down her shop, which was filled with some FABULOUS animations, and animated furniture. It really caught my eye, because there are some things there that I could totally see myself using...for those times, when I am not DOING anything in SL, but still want to be doing more than just standing around, or sitting in a chair.

I will let you discover the other great stuff she has over at her shop, which is located HERE.

You can find the juggling attachment there, and on XSTREET HERE..

btw, the juggling set, both balls and bowling pins, is only $150 lindens on XSTREET. Just a deal, for a little harmless fun!

Now go add a little MORE your SL!

P.S. btw...some GREAT gift ideas over at this shop, so before you give up...check out Sway's Shops!

You ever notice.... a new haircut, can make you walk with a new spring in your step?

Doesn't have to be a haircut either...but something that makes you "feel" like you look good....which can actually translate, into "feeling" good.

Nobody likes to admit that looking good...makes you feel good. But, hate to break it too you all, especially you guys, it does! I don't seem to have that problem.

I LIKE looking good. And when I feel like I look good...I feel a bit more confident in my daily activities.

I know that for example...when I get my hair cut in RL...I feel a bit better...I know I look better than all I feel a bit better (not counting all the damn hair that ALWAYS gets into my shirt).

So maybe I should not be surprised...that if I change my avatar, or get a new shirt, jeans, or a cool pair of shoes inworld...that my avatar seems to walk with a bit of a stronger strut than normal.

(I am gonna tell you a secret...guys primp just as much as girls do. We just don't like to talk about it)

And you know what else? Other people notice also. Sometimes I wonder if its the new clothes, the new hair, the new shoes..OR..just that I am liking how I my energy is different.

People that know me, will notice new hair...or even a new outfit...and women..god love'em...will notice new shoes...:)

But I think it mostly has to do with the energy. If you feel put out good energy. So why not do something that makes you feel good, everyday!

I say, get some new hair, a new shirt, new jeans...or some new shoes. Hell, get a new gun, a new car, boat, plane..whatever turns you on! It's one of the wonderful things about his crazy little world. You can get stuff, for really not A LOT of currency, relative to RL....and trust WILL get that same "Damn...I look GOOD!" feeling from a sharp looking avatar, as you do in RL.

Put a little more spring in your step today! Indulge yourself a little bit.

I will add a little note for the guys. New toys are great...but I would recommend...getting a woman who you know has good go shopping with you. You have to like HER taste in what she buys for herself, and also stay within a style YOU like, but ask for advice. I promise will NOT be sorry. Put the ego away...the benefits...will be enormous!

Talk to you soon!
