Coffee & Doughnuts

Coffee and Donuts 1Coffee & Doughnuts…this is what popped into my head when Elle found her way into this Tea house located at The Village & BarDeco. Even though I haven’t had a doughnut in years, the idea of taking a bite of scrumptious glazed doughnut – gently fried to perfection and lightly coated with the sugary glaze – kept filling my head while I took this photo.

Coffee and Donuts 2I honestly can’t remember the last time I ate a doughnut!  You see, I have been blessed *cough* with Celiac’s Disease and therefore I not supposed to eat any gluten whatsoever!  Well…I cheat…but I am selective with my cheating (LOL):  Pie and cupcakes are my Gluten Achilles heal and, well….Bagels.  You can get a marvelous gluten-free cupcake – but bagels?? Forget about it!

Any who, that’s all I got for now.  Yeah short and sweet for me but it’s Saturday and I need to do laundry in Real Life.  Damn this thing called RL….it keeps me from doing all sorts of fun things!  So until next time – take care my friends and have a great Second Life!

Love In The Time of the Internet

Love In The Time Of The Internet

I’m getting married tomorrow! Time flies, right? How did I even get here? I’ll tell you. It’s a story of love, loss, and life-changing events.

Two summers ago, I lost one of the most supportive people in my life. I was devastated and became very bitter and withdrawn for a while. Around the same time, one of my SL friends introduced me to her ex, Berathin. She had moved on to dating someone else, but we all remained a good group of friends. One day, she informed me that Bera’s mother had passed away the year before. I was still lost in the grieving process and reached out to him for advice.

We talked a lot after that. And of course, we grew to really like each other! Nothing was serious at first, but that changed over time. Where I’m fiery and short-tempered, Berathin is calm and rational. Where he loves Ancient Rome and the arts, I’m the artist who paints his fem-alt sometimes. Our differences come together beautifully; where they don’t, we get through it just like any other couple.

When did I realize I was in love with him? It was when I wanted to take a picture of our avs one day. He got his fem-alt to pose with me; while situating ourselves, I thought of all the ways he had positively impacted my life. It became overwhelming and I began to cry.

Snapshot.

We made plans to move the relationship into reality as soon as possible. When things were ideal for us both, he got a house and we proceeded to move in. It was hard for me to leave Detroit behind, but I had accomplished what I wanted to there anyway. It was just time to move on at that point.

Love In The Time Of The Internet

What are our lives like now? We have an office together where we work side by side and play pranks on each other. Our lives have been filled with adventure ever since we moved in together, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for both of us.

Tomorrow is the big day. I’m nervous but excited! We’re having a small courthouse ceremony followed by a a nice reception with our friends.

Have you ever had a serious relationship in SL? Have you ever taken it to RL? Lemme know in the comments!

Iron Maiden

Have you noticed that there’s a new blogger on JuicyBomb? Elle is my friend that had her own blog for years, but now she’s blogging here! Her writing style is engaging, so leave her some comments if you want to see more posts!

Exile released the most gorgeous braided hairstyle for Collabor88 this month. I am wearing the Iron Maiden hairstyle (love the name), and pairing it with Minerva Joggers and Fire Boots from Blueberry. To complete this outfit, I am wearing the sexy Annie Satin Top from Ricielli. I’m not usually a fan of shiny textures, but Ricielli does it nicely and very realistic.

Accidental Sex Sim-ing By Elle

Urban Life

Last week I was in search of a well done urban based sim for the above photo of Ms. Elle. Even in my SL past, urban sims could be seriously hit and miss and were often not updated.  Honestly I had absolutely no idea where to even start when I began this endeavor but I had an idea in my head for this photo that I wasn’t willing to let go.  To remedy this, I went directly to my beloved Explore Second Life group on Flickr to find a spot that might work for me.  One of the few urban sims that popped up after searching a few pages was one called Sexy Cat.  Yeah I know…I should have gotten a hint from the sim name but it seemed “clean” in the photos and well done therefore I thought to myself – Mission Accomplished!

Any who, I popped on over and found the sim to be relatively uninhabited – the only other avi on the sim had a profile description that more or less said “Second Life Explorer”.  So I sent Elle on a nice leisurely stroll in search of that perfect photo spot – something that would make this outfit definitely stand out.  As Elle made her way around the place, I went through a mental check list in my head:  Nice urban grunge feel (check), Bodega like stores (check), nice use of colors (check) and once the spot was found I was definitely ready to Rock and Roll!

Well midway through my photo taking a shadow appears on my screen and it stays there for a good long while.  Of course in my head I am thinking “Dude, I am standing here not moving, looking like a dumb ass so….GET OUTTA THE WAY!”  Then the familiar “ding, ding” happens and  I get this IM from the male resident:

[2017/01/02 10:52] xx: hey hun

At this point, the sighing commences on my part as I begin formulate my wordy reply:

[2017/01/02 10:53] Elle Couerblanc: hello  (So thoughtful and elegant a reply, right?  Now profile perving commences and the vedict for this fella was “harmless”)
[2017/01/02 10:53] xxxx: how are you
[2017/01/02 10:53] Elle Couerblanc:: fine (suddenly I feel the need to check out the land info tab.  Whoops – all the key words are there that should have been a huge red flag about the point of the sim when I tp’d in!)
(Okay now…wait for it…wait for it – the important question suddenly jumps into my brain.  After a brief pause I type the words……)
[2017/01/02 10:53] Elle Couerblanc: is this a sex sim or something? lol
[2017/01/02 10:54] xxxx: yes
[2017/01/02 10:54] xxxx: sexy avatar
[2017/01/02 10:54] Elle Couerblanc: haha oops I just liked the looks of it
[2017/01/02 10:54] Elle Couerblanc: thanks but I am just here taking photos (Now I feel bad…the guy really thought I was here for the same goals as him!)
[2017/01/02 10:54] Elle Couerblanc: sorry
[2017/01/02 10:54] xxxx: its ok hun

And then he continues on on his way leaving me to my work.  Well you can’t blame the guy for trying, but unfortunately for him I was not his target audience!  It was definitely a case of right place, wrong girl for this gentleman.  At this point I am laughing at myself in real life for my total reborn noob mistake!  Anyway Mr. Redacted Name Resident, I hope you found what you were looking for that day!  Because regardless of anyone’s reason for being in Second Life, as long as you can legally buy cigarettes in the US and it involves others who can legally buy cigarettes as well (AND are on the same page as you), you are definitely entitled to live out your dreams in Second Life, whatever they may be!  Rock on with your ePeens friends, just avoid the Blingis if you can!
