I have always had this dream of having a covered porch. A place to relax but still be aware of what is going on outside. A peaceful, cozy place like this.

Usher

I spent quite a few Lindens trying to get the Usher skybox from the Bauwerk House of Usher gacha at the Secret Affair. My cunning gacha skills were rewarded, however. And then, well, this happened:

There were just too many dark and creepy things and I felt I must fit. them. all. into this shot. My favorite are the Anna and Oscar avatars from Fallen Gods, available at A Clockwork Spiral.

Now, I am going to do my best to identify items, but since there are so many items I am pretty sure I will miss something. Please feel free to contact me in-world if there is something I can help you find.

La Peregrina/The Death Meme

Strawberry Singh brought out a nice morbid theme for her Monday meme this week, so here we go…death.

092514b

 

  1. Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die? – I think about it a lot. Life is just one small death after another, after all. Death of people, death of relationships, death of expectation, death of opportunity, death of love. While I hope to die in my sleep some night, I expect that my body will in reality die of kidney failure.
  2. Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? I do. I don’t know what it will be like there, but the odds are it will be better than here.
  3. What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? – I think the most painless would be for the sun to go red giant. That will keep things quick.
  4. How many times have you cheated death so far? – I think maybe death has cheated me.
  5. Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? – If I have a choice, I would like it to be La Peregrina from Alejandro Casona’s La dama del alba. It ain’t easy being death, but she is compassionate about it.
  6. If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? – Somehow I think that after I am dead I am not going to care too much about what the living are doing. So I’ll go somewhere. Sometime.
  7. Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? – Most assuredly not.

Routine

I do not look this good in the morning in RL. Nor do I participate in the morning ritual of coffee-drinking that is such a tradition with so many. But if I could look this good…well, I’d take it. Yes, I would.

Instead of my very sensible (and ugly) teacher shoes and clothes I would be snazzy and elegant in this beautiful outfit, including needle-thin spikes, from Giz Seorn. Instead of a  big old tote bag in which I stuff my books, tests, papers (both graded and ungraded) and my lunch, if I remember it, I would sport  the gorgeous leather handbag from Zenith. And instead of…well, let’s just say that my hair in RL does not bear speaking of. Here in SL, though, the gifted Kavar Cleanslate keeps me presentable.

Nevermore

The Secret Affair opens tomorrow and I can only rejoice at the beginning of the autumn season and the creep-fest that is to follow. Head over to get your fix of all things Edgar Allan Poe this round.

The Poor Soul chair from Fetch sets a perfect gloomy tone, accompanied by Paco Pooley’s gorgeous caged candles.

Last Words

My famous last words
Are laying around in tatters
Sounding absurd whatever I try
But I love you and that’s all that really matters

If this is goodbye.

Cat Sitter

The Arcade is in full swing and one of my favorite vendors this time around is Fashionably Dead, who has flooded the grid with beautifully drawn kitties. Bastion was kind enough to let me drop him in the middle of my feline swarm today. It’s a large photo, so click through if you want to see the full-sized version.
