The Interview Challenge

The Strawberry Singh meme of the week involved finding someone to interview me, so I threw Clay Cowen to the wolves (;-P) and asked him to interview me. I crashed three or four times trying to take a photo, and ended up with a less than optimal photo, but oh well. My computer and SL are not getting along that well lately. Here's our interview:

Me: I didn't get the pic I want but I got something, so let's start the interview. Can you interview me upside down?

Clay: hehe, sure. So, how long, do you think, before those wolves lose interest in us and we can get down?
Me: I think they're too smart for that. We'll have to teleport away. But maybe they're nice. I like dogs.

Clay: Like dogs, she says! Cute little store she says!  This woodland path is not scary she says! Seriously, what can I do to keep you from taking me shopping?
Me: There's nothing you can do to stop me. And that staying naked trick of yours doesn't work. It just makes me think you have nothing to wear.

Clay: Maybe I just like being naked around you, ever thought of that?
Me: It has occurred to me, yes. However, the urge to take you shopping is probably not the urge you're looking for. Besides, it's January 30th and I haven't taken you shopping in AGES! Do you remember the last time I made you go shopping?

Clay: Last time wasn't so bad, I guess. Is it very frustrating to be with a guy who changes his clothes about as often as a Simpsons character and hates shopping?
Me: grin It can be. I really don't understand how Second Life guys can wear the same clothes and skin and hair day in and day out. It's part of the fun for me in SL.

Clay: I guess for a lot of guys the fun of SL is just not having to worry about every day things like changes of clothes.  Is that how you got into doing the blog, enjoying the experience?
Me: You couldn't answer my question on when we last shopped together, could you?

Clay grumbles and looks at the wolves, considering trying his luck with them and looks back at her. "I guess not, no."
Me: I got into blogging because I like to put together looks and decorate my environment, and I like taking pictures, though sometimes with the computer crashes pictures are frustrating. I didn't think you'd remember...It was the Nerds and Geeks Fair! You got two Dr Who outfits and a sonic screwdriver!

Clay grins and nods "Now I remember it, yeah.  That was a while ago.  Do you enjoy finding new things like that?"
Me: I love the shared fantasy of Second Life, not just making my avi pretty (and yours). Everything we see on a sim is a creation of someone, not a background provided by Linden Labs. I love the designers who made the wolves, the trees, the poses, the clothes - and how I can put them together in my own way.

Clay grumbles about whoever made these menaces then looks back at Dolly. "You know, there are dangers in SL other than wolves.  Tell me the truth, you'd sell me to a travelling sideshow if it meant you could log on to Collabor88 first try every time, wouldn't you?"
Dolly Baroque grimaces for a moment, thinking hard. "Think that would work?"

Clay: How much hair is in your inventory and can we use it to fashion a rope and escape the wolves?
Me: Oh lord, I have no idea how many hairs I have, but I think we could make a rope to tie around the whole sim with the hair in my inventory. However, I'd rather feed you to the wolves than give them up.

For the Chill - New Coats from coldLogic

I dress Dolly pretty much for the real life seasons. In the middle of a hot summer I can't bear to see her in a cozy sweater, for instance. And when the temperature drops I like to bundle up my virtual self as well. Luckily for me, coldLogic feels the same way and released two new styles of winter coats for the chilly days ahead. The Tilton coat I'm wearing has optional skirt and shirt layers to fit under the coat for the fashionista in me, but I could just as easily wear it over leggings or jeans.

Autumn Delights - A Strawberry Singh Challenge

Berry's blog meme for the week is about Autumn, my favorite season in Second Life and in my real life. You thought that was Clay making me swoon in the picture? Well - maybe, but at least a little of the swooning is because it's time for Fall.

Meme Instructions: Take an autumn inspired picture and/or answer the following questions about autumn. Don’t forget to leave your answers in the comments of Berry's post and if you take an autumn picture, please add it to the Blog Memes flickr group.
  1. Is autumn your favorite season? Why or why not? – Yes and the reasons would be the colors of the season, the weather, cozy sweaters, and the sense of it being a season of plenty. My mother grew up on a farm and it was harvest season. Crops sold so there was money. Fruits and vegetables were canned and put up for the winter. Apple pies, cobblers, fritters and any other delicious item you can think of made with apples were plentiful. Even though I didn't grow up on the family farm, we still celebrated as if we had to grow our food ourselves.
  2. Do you call it Autumn or Fall? – Both. In the fashion seasons it's the Fall collection, not the Autumn collection! I take drives to the country to look at Fall foliage - the alliteration makes it a must. Ayla tells me it's only Americans who call it Fall, so I kind of self-consciously call it Autumn at times when I'd rather say Fall, but honestly, for the most part I can switch between the two in the same thought.
  3. What kind of weather does your area get during this season? – It's early for what I really consider to be Autumn. September is basically still summer. It cools off a bit from August, but the temperatures still usually reach the low 80's (Fahrenheit) during the day. Some trees turn a bit, but it builds slowly to the last two weeks in October when the colors of Autumn are glorious and the sweater weather begins.
  4. Which color do you always associate with autumn? – Colors plural! Rusty reds, pumpkin oranges, trees so brilliantly yellow that they make the crisp blue of the sky even brighter in contrast.
  5. Which Autumn themed sim is your favorite at the moment? – My own, but I'm not really bragging. I just haven't been out and about to check out Fall themed sims yet.

Breathless (NSFW)

I picked up this delectable pose (you thought I was going to say man, didn't you?) at Pose Fair from oOo Studio.  I waited patiently (not) for Clay to return from his research trip to try it out.  Pose Fair is over, but oOo has the Breathless couple pose in her main store.  Rawrrrrr!  I usually let Ayla take the sexy pictures, but she's away so I figured it was time for a little spice.  Clay thought so, too!

I know I'm not showing much of it, but we took this picture in the gazebo from 22769's offerings at Fantasy Faire.  This is as good a fantasy for the gazebo as any.  Clay is in FATEwear jeans and shirt, and I'm in boots from G Field. (wink)

Just a Girl in a Coffee Shop

In Second Life I can have horns, wings, branches growing out of my heard, and so many other oddball things, and yet, 99.9% of the time I choose to stay close to real life (with a better ass).  Dolly is an extension of the real life me, not an alternative.  Oh, I have a penguin avatar and I can get all happy feet in it and bring tears to my eyes laughing.  But dress Dolly in jeans and a sweater, plop her down in a coffee house, and I'm just as happy as long as I have a cup in real life.

This is all my way of rationalizing yet another pair of blue jeans, this pair by Fashionably Dead and new at Collabor88.  DOLLY NEEDED them to sit in coffee shops!  And by the way - I started with the Wasabi Pills hair this time in my styling - one of several newly added hairs to my inventory for my birthday thanks to Ayla and April.

Don't Think Twice, It's Alright

I go shopping all the time, so it's not worth mentioning, except to show what's new.  But when CLAY goes shopping - now that's something to talk about.  We went (ok, I dragged him) to The Mens Dept., a monthly event for men.  I talked him into the grey coat from DROP and a pair of the headphones from 22769.  He had nice new mesh jeans from FATEwear, and I thought he looked pretty spiffy in his new duds.  I might have dragged him around for a scarf because our sim is cold as you can see, but I really didn't want to push my luck. 

We felt a little Bob Dylan/Joan Baez circa 1963 in this couple pose from Diesel Works, so I named the post after a Dylan song released that year.

Two Make a Heart, See?

Awww, this sweet couple pose from oOo, her gift for the With Love Hunt, made my heart melt when we tried it.  What a darling tableau!  Clay really is the sort of sweetheart that would turn my candy cane into a heart, so it suits us.  We're getting into the Christmas spirit with the Cheeky Pea antler tree available at this month's Men's Dept.  My outfit, hair and jewelry, and the mesh house in the background are from December's Collabor88.  Clay still looks handsome and fashionably current in his Fatewear finery.  Joy to the world!

Elevator Music

How often does this happen to you?  You step into the elevator in your cute new skimpy dress, avoiding eye contact with the hot guy behind you.  Humming to the elevator version of "Come Away with Me" you touch the number of the floor you want, careful to observe the proper etiquette by turning your eyes studiously to the lights above the door that will flash the floor numbers as you pass them.

All the while, you're blushing about a wild fantasy that popped into your head about the guy behind you.  Too bad he'll never know what you're thinking.  He might actually be flattered.

I've had this sexy and fun elevator pose prop from oOo Studio for nearly a month and finally talked Clay into putting on some clothes to take the photo.  He stays naked most of the time thinking that will stop me from taking him shopping.  It doesn't.  I just think "Poor guy needs clothes. We'll go shopping."

Scroll down for clothes credits.
