My coffee, its simplicity and power filling me with joy each time I was asked how I’d like it and I’d say ‘Strong, black, no sugar’. It felt like fuel for my brain and my day.
Then it all changed… ‘Espresso Madam?’. My furrowed brow must have indicated some level of dissent, but largely ignorant of what ‘Espresso’ might be, I’d say yes. I can reliably inform you dear reader, that what Espresso means to me is simple. It means tiny. It means one gulp of searingly hot, strong, black coffee and then a few bits of silt floating around on my tongue.
Sometimes I’d persist… ‘No, a large, strong, black coffee with no sugar’ and they’d say ‘double espresso Madam?’.
No, I must not be espressoing myself very well. I do not wish to pay £3 for a shot of coffee the size of the shot of whiskey I’m going to need to get over this happening. I want a large container, full to the brim of the witches potion. I want there to be lots of it. I want to pay you almost nothing for the whole thing. I want it to be proper coffee, not instant and I do not, I repeat, do not want it in a tiny pissing little cup.
Equally, I do not want to tell you my name so you can write it on a takeaway cup. I do not like that.
And this is why I can never be a hipster.
What to wear in Second Life today?

Back once more to the Luck of the Irish Gacha Event by Depraved Nation for a dip into Image Essentials Pose Pack ‘Evolution of a Hipster’. It includes the coffee and the pose, but not the cushions which I just put there to make me more comfortable.
Cynful’s Suede Halter Dress is now at TDR Fusion – I get confused you know as to whether the fusion is still relevant or not – it’s definitely TDR tho! I find with this dress that I have to adjust my boob size so that they’re not enormous. You may be thinking that my boobs are already enormous, but suffice it to say, I don’t think so and I like them to look reasonably in proportion to the rest of me. Other than the boobiness, it’s a classy style of dress and will be only 70l$ in the special colours they have released for the event.
My fave thing today is the RealEvil hat (and hair) which is available now at Shiny Shabby. I love all the jewellery RealEvil produce for its quality and adaptability via HUD. But this hat… well, it is romantic, mysterious, stunning and I love it. You will too.
[Z O O M]’s Milus Glasses are available right now at Tres Chic Avenue. They are detailed, slightly owlish (a look I like very much) and come with a HUD to change all the elements of the frame and the lenses too, meaning they can be glasses or sunglasses.
