Love, the deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.

But that isn’t it, exactly.

The condemner and the condemned. The executioner; the blade; the last-minute reprieve; the gasping breath and the rolling sky above you and the thank you, thank you, thank you, God.

Love: It will kill you and save you, both.

-Lauren Oliver, Delirium

My friend Bastion made this fun pose and we tried it out today. We had fun in our matching u.f.o buckle coats from this round of Collabor88.  It was a snowy day so it was the perfect moment for one of my favorite Arcade items, the Engineer Boots from Sleepy Eddy. Also, Truth Hawks is back from a hiatus with this lovely Princess Lea style with a twist. Side buns forever!!!

Private Life

Strawberry Singh issued a challenge on her blog about what our avatars do when we log out of Second Life. There doesn’t happen to be a lot of difference between SL Eliza and RL Eliza, so when I log off, Eliza either sits down to grade the endless papers that are the constant companion of teachers, or she falls exhausted into bed. Usually when I am grading I have my great big dog Luna on the couch with me, but she wouldn’t fit on this sweet couch from Cory Edo, so Eliza has settled for a cat instead.
