I was just about to ask for people’s input on a personal problem on Facebook and I did my best to type it out reasonably fully, and quickly skim read it and realised that I had never seen it written down before and that once I had, I didn’t need to ask. It went like this…
‘My Dad has not been a great father overall and a few years ago his wife decided I wasn’t welcome in their house with my partner, because I was still legally married to the old one, even though we’d acknowledged our separation some years before. He sided with her, citing her as ‘old-fashioned’. It was hard for me to swallow because she had talked to me about her (very) wild life while married in the 70s – and I knew my Dad was no angel, having cheated on my Mum a lot when I was small. I felt they were hypocrites. I’ve not seen him or heard from him for 2 years, aside from Christmas and birthday cards in both directions. I’d offered to meet up with him to talk about it, anywhere he chose aside from his house with his wife, but he wouldn’t meet anywhere else. It’s several hours drive away and I’d have to go alone, feeling like I was going into enemy territory without backup. He has also sent nasty emails to me and – this hurt – to my ex, with whom I’m close friends, just before Christmas one year.’
My question was this… ‘Do I send him a Father’s Day card?’
I’m thinking not. They don’t make cards that say the things I need to say.
So my message of the day is, if you have a conundrum you’re having problems with, write it down and read it as if someone else wrote it. You might find the answer you’re looking for is literally staring you in the face.

So, I was over at my Mum’s house recently and I showed her the main ‘Hula Who?’ picture I intended to use in this blog. She said immediately ‘Oh my God! That bottom!’ and I had to explain about the Blueberry Booty, haha. Of course, in SL, the Blueberry booty options are fairly well known. Blueb gives good butt. I’m happy to share with you the Blueberry Babe Top and Shorts, available as a new release right now at the Blueberry mainstore. Get some Blueberry booty for your cutie patootie.
Here’s some more pictures including a ‘well lit, no shit’
Finally, here is my ‘jigging for the rigging’ video. Sadly I could not hula through the video as the poses are static (wow a moving hula hoop and dance would be so great… but I digress) but I can dance… join me? I have some Vega for you.
