So Espresso


Hot, deep, sensuous, aromatic, bittersweet and mysterious – the coffee, not me. Let me tell you a story about coffee. A long time ago, in a land not so very far from here, I used to be addicted to coffee. Each day I would drive like a crazy person to get to my office. I would sink a nice, big espresso as soon as I arrived and from then, another every 45 minutes. Of course I got thirsty inbetween, so I’d have Diet Pepsi. Wow I was so caff’ed up, it really kept me on the edge. I’d spend my days shouting ‘Buy, buy, buy!’ and ‘Sell, sell, sell!’ into the phone, even though I didn’t work in the stock market. My secretary didn’t dare approach me without a steaming cup in her hand. I was a tiny bit tense and I put it all down to the espresso.

I gave up the coffee after I gave up the job and now I only have one for a special treat occasionally, the upside is that it makes me naughty, the downside – I’ll always be an espresso addict.

It’s just dawned on me that we’ve reached a stage in Secondlife history. This is the point where clothes in Secondlife became better than clothes in RL. No, really. I offer the following evidence. When I buy from a designer like Blueberry, I now get a made-to-measure service, so each garment fits me like it was made for just me. I also get a HUD with which I can change details of the garment to my own tastes. The Blueberry Amalia Beaded top (and there is also a dress version!) comes with 5 standard sizes, plus fitted mesh versions for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya mesh bodies. The HUD allows you to change colours and stone types of the larger stones, as well as colour options for the smaller beads, neck tie and metals. I can’t find that in RL! Blueberry say that their Maitreya Lara option is still experimental, but it seems extremely good to me. I’m not using any alphas in the above photograph.

21Shoe event is coming up on the 21st of April. I’m sure you know the deal, but in case you don’t… That is the day that you can buy 2 styles or versions of a shoe from one designer for the price of one. Yes! I said you buy one, you get one free. Plus, each designer often does special editions for the event, so you can end up with some pretty exclusive designs. I’m showing you .:KC:.’s offering for this month in the picture above – well, one of them anyway. I’ve done a snapshot so you can see both, below. My advice – Join the 21Shoe inworld group to be notified of which stores are taking part and to get their free gift.
