Thom and I didn’t go into SL last night, even though our friend and wonderful DJ Chris was playing. We had an opportunity for some alone time and took it. We watched the latest Walking Dead episode and generally spent some time talking and flirting.
I think when people ask (because some have) what the secret to a long-lasting relationship in SL is, I’d probably say there isn’t one that is any different to a RL relationship. I think most of it is down to communicating as well as we can, not being afraid to have a laugh together and also, liking each other very much.
Sure, sometimes he drives me bananas. His compliments have to be sorted from the vague insult he wraps them in, unintentionally, I’m sure. I will give an example… last night he said ‘Oh your hair looks great – what have you done to it?’ and then realised immediately that such a question made it sound like my hair usually looks terrible. One of his best ones was when I showed him a picture of a hairstyle I liked and he said ‘Yeah but she’s a model’… I mean, there are no words 😀
Sometimes I drive him up the wall. I’ve been known to correct his grammar during a row – yeah, I can be that annoying. I never forget anything he’s said that wasn’t nice or was incendiary and sometimes I remind him of them. I can be extremely intrusive, mentally speaking, and I probably talk too much.
But yes, with regards to love in SL, my advice is to find someone who loves you for being you (so simple and easy to do, I know) and then love them back – hard.

Getting two new mainstore releases from Addams and Blueberry that just happen to work with each other felt like a blessing from the gods. How happy was I when I put them on together and they (mostly) worked like a charm? So happy!
The stunning Addams Queen Metal Dress comes with or without built-in panties (to match dress) and in a choice of 16 metallic textures, as well as you being able to just wear it as a bra top if you prefer, instead of a dress.
Blueberry’s Gracie Pants come with or without the built in boots (omg, so gorgeous) and with denim, shiny (shown) or leather texture HUDs in so many colours and options you’ll just pee if you get them all. You can also choose between cutiebootie and blueberry bootie via HUD!
KoKoLoRes’s lovely gift – Manon – a bob, comes with a HUD with 6 choices of colour and is a VIP exclusive. If you’re already a member of the VIP group, it’s free and if you’re not a joining fee of 250l$ will net you any of their wonderful gifts when they come out, as they do regularly.
Here’s some more pics including a well lit no shit shot.
And finally, here is the jigging for the rigging video. We’re going back to 1990 for this one, I hope you shuffle your little feeties too. You’ll notice a tiny area of breakthrough on the waist of the pants with the dress. Of course, as they were not made to be worn together, this is simply my choice and I think it’s barely noticeable.
