This was me at almost every single high-school and college dance: Tall, clumsy, and inevitably off sitting on the bleachers watching some bouncy, petite, cute thing dance with the object of my sad teenaged affection.

Fast-forward twenty years, I no longer care about that. But now I watch the same thing happen on the sidelines of dances at which I am now a chaperone. I am not sure which is worse, going through it or watching my poor students go through it. Of course, now students practically hump each other on the dance floor so that’s got to be fun if your crush is dancing with yet another bouncy, petite, cute thing.

At least now, thanks to another wonderful design from Sakide, I can look nice while being a wallflower and wishing that guy would dance with me.

Boys of Summer

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately shopping with guy friends and yesterday we hit the Boys of Summer event. It’s the biggest men’s event I have ever seen. I have also learned that the majority of men of my aquaintance are extremely fussy about what they will wear in SL—much more so than the ladies! For example, today my friend took exception to having to wear a cowboy hat. But what a cowboy hat! My favorite item at the Boys of Summer event is the summer t-shirts from Sakide. This is a good summer for men’s fashion in SL. Let’s hope it continues.
