Miss May

A while back, I wrote about Eloria LeShelle of Battered Boutique and her awesome jeans. Well, she needed a new "pin-up" for the wall of the store, and she picked me for this month. I am humbled and honoured!

Even more, I got an outfit named after me—the 'Nique. Of course, it's not from any kind of talent. Eloria is the talented one. Being a model in First Life is hard work, so I understand, but being one in Second Life is totally easy. You don't even have to pose, because animations do it for you. Photo shoots are simple—just watch the photographer work. And change clothes and make adjustments when you're asked. And don't talk too much so your hands don't move!

This is a bit of a skimpy entry, because I just finished a three-hour DJ shift at the Velvet, and I'm knackered. It was Victoria Day in Canada, a holiday, so tonight was all things Canada—the good, the bad, and the silly. Of course I didn't take any photos, dammit, and alyssa looked great dressed as the Stanley Cup. And Lana was wearing a canoe. And the place was really full! I'm grateful that everyone wanted to come out and have fun.

The convention that people use during musical performances to avoid typing noises should work for avoiding typing animation as well, I think. Just start your message with a slash. (I leave a space after the slash, just in case.)

You're right, Melissa. I forget about that, even though I have a friend who does it all the time. The hand waving is something that LL should have changed a long time ago, at least made more subtle.
