Join the -SOS- Group. “Save our openspaces, we as open space users love having a smaller sim available to us and 100% disagree with this ludicrous new linden policy.”

At the end of the first day, the group includes already more than 1000 users and has set up several initiatives to show the L guys this decision will cost them much more than just linden dollars.

So, who knows ? Maybe this time we can make a difference !

Oh and…

… did I told you about the electricity company calling me and threatening to deliver a legal action against me on court because my shitty ex-FL partner wasn’t paying the bills? I didn’t ? Awww, I still have some fun ones to tell you, then.

Funny thing is… for someone who doesn’t pay his bills, he does a pretty nice job paying his tiers at the Owls Bay sim (curious priorities, but then again, that is a choice of his own). Ah! And he’s home at noon, when I drop by to pick up my postal mail (yes, I get out for lunch early, for I start working at 8:30 in the morning). Mmm… maybe he is doing massages at home now ? hehehe

I had another call from Citibank, the collection department. It’s not the first time they call me and say that I owe them about 70 euros. Apparently this refers yet to another monthly fee of of my ex-partner’ favourite onlie game, World of Warcraft. And yes, this is very much true, five months after we had split-up he had not yet changed his credit card details on his game account.

For five months after I left home, I was still paying his game. Me, every month. At the end of July I thought that was a bit enough and I cancelled the card. My bad luck, apparently the exact same day that the card was cancelled another bill was debted over it. And the efficient Citibank system, again on the very same day, cancelled the automatic debit order over the bank account.

I think they must have also cancelled my address hehehe – for I never knew of this mouvement until about 15 days ago, when their call centre called me out of the blue with this debt + interests demands. Within a coupe of months, something that costed about 13 euros at the beginning of August, has turned to about 70 euros by October. I sent written registered letters both to the administration and their quality department – but I doubt that will do any good.

And you know what ? After today’s call, I called the piece of shit guy who once lived on my shoulders, just a few moments ago – so he could note the atm references and pay HIS debt… And yes, I had a total neutral voice, and yes I was able to control myself. No, I did not shout at him and limited the conversation to the minimum. But well… he had no place where to note down, would not be home that soon so my e-mail with the references would be read eventually… one day… and of course, he doesn’t have the money to pay for it.

So I did. Once again. I guess now he owes me about 75.060 euros – will he ever pay me or will he just go on being the social parasite that make his friends really proud? Any bets ? *winks…

Broadway Babies

For those who don’t know them, ZDiva Sorbet and Melodee McConnoly are two voices that make you shiver from the first time you start listening to them. Though I just discovered them recently, I quickly became a stalker and tried not to miss a single show of their in-world tour Broadway Babies. Which, unfortunately came to an and yesterday.

They will go on singing, however, and I strongly recommend all of you to drop by, especially if you are a fan, like I am, of old musicals, Broadway productions, Disney movies and so on. Yes, they sing it all – from Cats to My Fair Lady, Les Miserables, Singing in the Rain, well you name it, to Grease, for instance.

Those who know me better know how much I love musicals. My favourite movie of all time is Moulin Rouge, which in itself is a tribute to music – and I guess that sums up pretty well what I feel about it.

And since I believe in the old saying that “a music a day keeps the doctor away”, I leave you with this one below. Grease is part of me since I remember myself. I watched the movie over and over again, I still keep the old vinyl album and well… every time ZDiva sings it I am jumping on my chair and literally SCREAMING the song (and of course, freaking my neighobours to death!).

And just because I seem unable to get rid of it any other way…

Damn you!

Just when a girl is all happy because she had this two awesome outfits for a monthversary gift (and finally was able to find you something at least meaningful after researching half the grid :P), you do it again and succeed in surprising me! This is the second time you do such a thing!!

Will you STOP that ?

Humm… then again… don’t *winks ❤

With the change into winter timeline, I woke up at 8:30 today. I had promised my sweetie pie I would try to find him interesting sims to write about for the next issue of the FreeLifeMagazine, and after some mis-landings I finally found Morgandy Isle. Well, I am sure it’s not the kind of sim he was looking for, but holly goddess, it’s the perfect place for a girl to loose her mind and shoot herself as many pictures as her own pc can stand !

And since this blog has been lacking some images, well I just can’t resist to share some of them you you. Believe me, the whole place is loads of fun either you’re on your own or with some friends – for there are lots of pose balls put together to accommodate groups of three and even four people.


A favourite, to start with! I immediately started to think this would be a perfect pose to drop somewhere in Portucalis, hehehe! It’s a burn the witch pole, of course… exactly what Portucalis is still missing, hehehe

As you jump off the pole, you will have to cross the “butcher’s room” (suitable for those who like lots of blood all over). Personally I didn’t mind hanging around a bit, since it implied be carried over on my babe’s arms, hehehe

Don’t worry if your outfit got a bit messy. Go straight ahead, and you’ll find this garden by the lake. You’ll have a hard time choosing where to sit first, lol. Time to tp your friends and sit together for a nice Sunday chat :). You can either choose a spot by the crashed trunk…

… or relax by the wood boxes around.

Then, have a flight over the whole sim… discover the hidden caves with your special one, if you want to (pictures not qualified for publication). Over an abrupt hill facing the linden sea, there is this place of magic, specially aligned with the present season.

Ah! Before I forget… if you like the theme, fly over to the twin sim and goof around with the pumpkins and ghosts. Oh, yes, there are ghosts indeed !

And finally, if ever you get tired of all these adventures, climb up the lava-fall, up way to the top of the hill. And then, please please please, climb the stairs as well! You’ll see it’s totally worth it!

And there, at the top of the world…

… stop for a while a look down at this wonderful place. Listen to the soft music, and you will realise, as I did, that we don’t need much to be happy. That, in fact, the less we carry with each other, the more enjoying will be the travel. And after all, this is all about the trip, isn’t it ? Not really about the place you will reach at the end of it. Thus… better leave behind all the things that carry only sorrow and pain inside – and enjoy each and every moment the best we can!

Note: yes, my outfit has these holes, and is all thorn and messy. Isn’t it gorgeous ? Thaaanks, babe! ❤

Monthversary

Sometimes, there are things that draw my attention from the moment I first look at them. The way you write, was what caught my eye. Days and weeks and months went by before we had what I call a “proper” conversation – that is, a meaningful one, with real thoughts bursting into lines of chat filled with typos.

Some more weeks passed by, and one fine day we both realised that we were together all the time (as in “all the time we are awaken, except for those moments we are heading FL work or FL home and those we have FL engagements, lol”). That was the day of our own “so, now what?” talk… and that happened exactly three months ago.

A month later I literally fell off my chair when you asked me to become your partner. And yes, I still remember what I was wearing at that exact moment, hehehe – how can I ever forget that ? 😛 I also remember your exact words, because I read them over and over again…

Our second month together was celebrated during your rezzevening – and no doubt, that was a memorable event! I know, this was also your twin ana’s rezzday. But I’m sure you agree that here and there it was as if we were alone at the ForUs Club.

And here we are. Standing side by side, our hands hold together firmly. Equals in our differences, balanced in spite of our anguishes and fears.

You are my best friend and my confident. Beyond everything that keeps us apart, I always feel understood, supported and cherished, no matter what. Step by step, at our own very slow rhythm, we came to conquer this deep confidence in each other. You already made me cry, but you often make me laugh, even when I’m going through one of those really very dark moods of mine. My heart always misses a beat whenever I see you logging in. When you’re not with me, there’s always this latent void of not knowing exactly what to do with myself.

Sometimes, I look ahead and get scared at the thought that all of this will be gone, sooner or later. Other times I fear that I am preventing you from going ahead with your own FL. But every night I lay down on my bed with this smile on my face and this completeness in my soul just because I spent another day with you. I thank the goddess this immense gift of having you in my life, and ask her to help me making you as happy as you make me.

And I close my eyes and dream of you, knowing that you will live in my heart for as long as you want to, and that every minute of it has been totally worth living.

Happy monthversary, babe! I love you deeply ❤

Today’s dream-song

Every morning as I drive to work, I listen to the same radio channel. Around 08:15 each day, they have this slot called “dream-song”. Sometimes the chosen song means nothing to me, but it already happened to find me singing out loud… or crying, while listening to it. Today’s music made me start to laugh for the first minute, and brought back a lot of happy memories. I share it with all of you – specially with those that, like me, have had a hell of a month.

For those who are not able to follow the portuguese/brazilien lyrics, all you need to know is that this is about a magical balloon with happy people inside – and all they want is to take this travel filled with fun and enjoyment. Even if the video is a bit old already, it surely deserves to be seen – holly godness, the expressions the the children faces!!

Have a great Friday, everyone :***

Ps – Hum, I AM growing old – why does Djavan all of a sudden seems so hot ? hehehe
Ps2 – specially for you, babe. I know a character in this video will seem familiar to you. No, I don’t think it’s our favorite marine guy who slipped out of the camp, but any comments welcome in my e-mail… uuuhhh!

Intentions

It is really amazing. When people are totally poisoned against someone, no matter what you do, they will always find a way to completely twist every action you take and blame you for your “intentions”.

Yesterday I put all my lands in Portucalis for sale, in the post below. With that, I intended that a possible next owner of the sims wouldn’t be that overloaded with monthly tiers as I am currently. But you know what ? My eventual estate buyer twisted it completely and accused me of trying to lead him wrong, as if I was selling lands that I had promised to sell him – when we had spent a good part of the day chatting and speaking over the phone about ways that would allow him to reduce his own costs to a minimum.

Well, it’s no use, is it ? People will always look at things according to their own particular vision and based on the idea they have of you – in certain cases, an idea that grew on its own, in many others, and idea that was deliberately planted inside of you by someone else. Either the case, they will always interpret it their own way and will not care to ask what were you thinking (even when you spent a good part of the evening AGAIN speaking over the phone – of course it’s sooo much fun just to send an accusing e-mail so that the other one can read it first thing in the morning, right?).

And this is where my old friend ANGER reappears.

Gosh ! Yesterday evening I even thought I would let go Summer’s SL account along with the territory, only so that he wouldn’t have to pay 600 USD of property transmission costs! Yes, it really crossed my mind that it would be easier for everyone ! I actually called him and proposed it to him !

Yes… for a brief moment I considered killing this person who I have been for the last 2 years only for Portucalis to keep on and their residents not to be bothered. I would make the final sacrifice and would let go two years of memories, stories, a more than full inventory with some things that I would lost FOREVER and that have a whole MEANING for me (of course, after a couple of hours thinking about that and hurting myself deeply again, I concluded I am not really that strong just to let ME go like that).

Is this barely sane ? That I have been depriving myself and my kid of some First Life items just to keep the place up, after it was abandoned by my previous ex-business partners? The Goddess only knows what this implied – I have been doing that QUIETLY, for I considered that my financial problems are… my problems, lol (yes, often I rant that my ex-FL partner still hasn’t paid me what he owns me, since that would help a lot, hehehe). And where did all these sacrifices led me to ? LOL!!

Yes, it’s no use. I am now totally sure that I will be happier if I just let everything go. They all will be happier as well.

Bottom line: you won’t need to find my “hidden intentions” any longer. My intentions are at this moment as clear as they were all along the way. But I understand that interpretations are subject to… subjectivity. People with “agendas”, I know… they have a hard time believing that others simply don’t have them. People with second intentions, I know, have a hard time bilieving others don’t hide them inside.

It’s a pity. But now I know exactly what to do. And since you all believe I am this really mean inhuman self – well, this time pay attention and take good note. Don’t miss it, for I am going to finally prove you are all totally right !

For Sale

If anyone wishes to buy any piece of my land in Portucalis – including any piece of the resort, the lighthouse, Sniffland, Art Gallery, Library or Migas the medieval village, please feel free to contact me, either in or out-world.

I am selling it cheap – my only problem with that is I can’t stand to pay 80K lindens/month of tiers no longer. So go ahead and don’t be shy, I’ll probably accept the first offer that comes.

Kiss kiss

UPDATE – Situation solved 😀

UPDATE 2 – Situation not solved at all.
