You probably saw Harper’s piece a while back about my not being able to write much for the blog anymore. The good news is that things aren’t quite as drastic as I may have led her to think. It’ll still be fun to get some time for writing, but it probably won’t be any worse than I already am, lol.
Anyway, when I let the boss know I’m still available, she asked me to do a fast one to link to the current issue of Eclipse Magazine. Their cover story this month, written by Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion, is on Strawberry Singh. But it’s not the usual fashion piece, like you’d see in the past on her (I’ve done some checking). Berry is one of the more prominent and outspoken women within Second Life working for preservation of women’s and immigrant rights. This lets her in for a lot of “criticism” — if you can really call it that. Please be sure to read the article.
I finished up a survey I volunteered to take on religion in Second Life today, and took some time afterward to wander around the land. As I was walking back from the Celtic cross I have on a sub-island, look what I spotted sitting on my bridge! He was a friendly type — didn’t move an inch when I bent closer to talk to him. I felt like Snow White for a minute, singing to the birds in the forest….
Snow White didn’t dress like this, though, which I found at a side location while I was picking up my eyeshadow for this shoot. Green and black leather, fitting nicely, soft and supple when I move. I matched this dress with new rings and earrings from Modern Couture, and a bracelet from Zuri Rayna.
And, at last, a long hairstyle I enjoy! The Tsubasa wig from Argrace fits wonderfully, doesn’t stuff itself into my boobs, and is modifiable for color to the jelly-bean colors I choose for some of my characters. I can see Ariel in her trademarked dark blue shade with this hair when she doesn’t have it in an updo; and as for more normal shades, look at Sharra here. There are more shades available in both dark and light red, of course, as well as other colors. If long hair is your preference, try this one out for sure!
Please note, some items may not yet be available at these links, which are all to the main stores.

Finally, once again, it’s MEME TIME!!!! Strawberry Singh is trying to reactivate her popular Monday Memes as of last week, though she can’t promise she’ll keep them up constantly. I can’t blame her for that lack of promise — coming up with meme ideas is a lot of work, week after week!
This challenge is called “Never Have I Ever.” It’s simple: copy and answer the questions below, and remember to link back to Berry’s article, so she knows you’re playing along.
See the questions, and my answers, on the next page!
For us Americans, it’s ‘Super Tuesday’ today. ‘Super Tuesday’ is the unofficial name for a Tuesday (March 1st this year) during the US Presidential Primary election when the largest number of states hold their primaries or caucuses. These are the States participating today: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia for […]

Thanks to Berry Singh
(From Harper:) As of this writing time, you still have the chance to in most, if not all, of the states today. If you’re registered and you haven’t gone to the polls yet, get there now! If nothing else, this gives us the right to bitch in the end.
Here are some photo tips from Strawberry Singh, which I discovered today on New World Notes — thanks, Ham! Even old hands can learn new things, and I discovered some goodies about WindLight and Firestorm I didn’t know about.
Be prepared for maybe a minute of dead air at the beginning as Berry is getting things set up; don’t touch your dial, as she’ll come in soon. Additionally, be prepared for a photobombing visitor in the background close to the end — a rather “EEEwwww”-worthy Hallowe’en clown (grin).
Strawberry Singh’s latest Monday Meme came along at a perfect time; I was working on this concept anyway after finding a photo on Pinterest I’d loved, and so why not take advantage of it? I never saw The Loretta Young Show when I was a child, but the reputation of it and its star has come down through the sixty years since it premiered on NBC.

Writing from Orlando, Florida:
Meme Time again — fear and tremble, all ye mortals!
No, not really; Berry Singh actually comes up with some interesting things, and each one gives us blog fodder to keep these voracious pages filled. This week’s Monday Meme gives us a chance to look back for a time, something we should do every once in a while to remember where we came from. Simply take two pictures from your blog — one from the earliest articles you’ve written, and one from recently, and let’s see how much times have changed for you. Preferably the first and most recent photo of you, it should be noted, but, as you’ll see below, I had to be a little more flexible.
For me, finding a few early photos wasn’t difficult — it was choosing one I’d like to show you! Lord, I was rough back then, still learning the craft (of which I am by no means a perfect mistress yet). And also getting a decent face shot! So I’m including two from the early days, both of me in Ginny Talamasca gowns that were favorites for a time. I wasn’t taking closeups very often back then, until my first Hair Fair. Knowing how far we’ve come since those early days of system shirts and flexi prims and “photo-realistic” skins, well, (shudder, grin).
And so here we are today (from my OFPC “final update” gown). It looked pretty good back then; but oh, how it looks today! So many changes and improvements have come along, some of which everyone said Predicted the Imminent Death of Second Life. And yet here we are, more than ten years down the road for the Grid and approaching eight for me personally. Where’s it gonna go from here?
(Note to Berry and others: I’ll do a proper side-by-side once I get home and get a few minutes. Right now, I’m without all my tools, or the ability to use them well if I added them to this laptop.)
