100 Words

with 7 comments

I’ve been trying the 100 words on a subject challenge. You have a word or a couple of words to start with and you go from there. It’s freeform and really fun. Don’t think too much about it, just launch forth and give it a go.

1. Olive Oil

Which came first, the olive or the oil? There they are, all lined up at the supermarket in variously labelled bottles, mostly made from dark green glass. Some people love the taste and some find it horrendous, it’s roughly the same as marmite lovers and haters. The olive is an insignificant little fruit harvested from the olive tree but a whole industry making olive oil derivatives runs on it. I wonder if they ever asked the tree if it minded being farmed. There they are, lined up in the orchard looking gravid with fruit. Expectant olives all in a row.

2. Home Page

Pages belong in a book and you can keep them at home. In dedicated libraries or stuffed under beds, there are various book depositories within a home. When you want a particular book, when you’re home, then you have to get up and search for it. No pressing Search and expecting the answer pronto within 0.12 seconds or less. You have to engage your brain now, albeit a painful process. Where did I effing leave it? Access internal filing cabinet. Tick tock, tock tick. Oh yes, by the bath tub and I’d got to chapter 17. Not sure which page.

3. Daily Mail

Our postman arrives at a sensible hour, 2 pm. No early rises for him, the slow morning is all his, along with a glass of sloe gin. At least that’s what I imagine happens. He addresses the bottle and unscrews the cap with a satisfying twist or three. Then he pours the topaz liquid into a crystal glass, kept especially for the occasion. The jinn goes down sloely, burning his throat slightly on the way. After a consequent nap, he dons his uniform and picks up the mail bag. He makes a slow exit straight into the fast lane.

4. Atlas Mountains

The Atlas Mountains are in Morocco, so they say. There’s a trio of ranges to choose from. Don’t forget to pack your unfriendly weather gear and Kendal Mint Cake in case of emergencies. There’s lots of exotic villages around them such as Sidi Badhaj and Oukaimeden. I’d expect a golden domed temple to be rising out of the ground nearby, surrounded on all sides by relatives of Indiana Jones. They’d be carrying useful archaeological implements such as trowels, spare chinos and leather whips. A map detailing the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant would be useful, too.

5. My Cat

If there’s one thing my cat hates for dinner, it’s anything by Whiskas. She doesn’t appreciate economical cat food, she likes anything organic, preferably killed by her. Yesterday she presented me with a fish from my neighbour’s pond. To avoid having to explain about feline thieving yet again, I cooked the fish and fed it to my cat. She looked like her boat had come in and was purring all night. I tried one of the scraps, it was delicious. I borrowed my kid’s stickleback net and now I’m going to stake out my neighbour’s pond.

6. Heavily Processed

What’s the difference between heavily processed foods and some of the complicated dishes that elite chefs make? Not a lot. By the time they’ve finished producing their foams, gels, mayonnaise and chocolate soil for goodnessake, it’s just as processed as supermarket cereal and ice cream. According to the government, the supermarket stuff is bad for us. Food is meant to be processed. Would you like some salmonella with your pink chicken, sir? Heavily processed milk is called cheese. Heavily processed bread is called toast. You can combine these to get cheese on toast for the latest in ultra processed food.

Here’s some starters for you… Scruffy Dogs, Game of Thrones, Wall Mirror, Bunny Slippers, Plumbers, Brexit, Athletic Pursuits, Chocolate Mints, Uncomfortable Knickers, Hot Weather, Technology, The Tarot, Plastic Bags, Overtime, Loft Conversions, Mum Knows Best, Laundry Day.

nb – all photos are royalty free stock pictures and heavily processed 🙂

Upgrades

with 4 comments

 

And I thought they meant upgrades to my computer!

A new subscription Event is here, it’s run by Second Life® Syndicate and it’s called SLS Crates. You’ll be able to purchase subscriptions on Marketplace and at SLS Inworld HQ. Now you’ll have to be quick here as today is the LAST DAY where you can purchase at the pre-order price of L$1000. From June 1st, tomorrow, it’ll be full price at L$1500.

You can expect a mixture of items for your Home and Avatar, appliers have to include Omega versions. All items will be unisex unless stated otherwise. Sometimes clothing may be included but will always include male and female versions. Crates will retire after 3 months.

Each month will be themed – June is called “Upgrades” and it’s a Sci-Fi themed crate. There will always be 6 designers per crate. If bonus designers are added occasionally this won’t alter the cost. June Designers are:- Contraption, Astara, Ex Machina, Hilted, This is Wrong and Violetlilty.

All Designer products will total up to at least L$500 if released separately.

Bring the Outdoors in

Today’s scene features (amongst others) the “Summer Living Set” by JooLee Tee. It’s a very cute and colourful summer set for your lounge which is not too expensive to achieve.  All furniture is PG but if you are so inclined you can always put down an adult animated mat/blanket on the sofa and make it invisible.

If I have a favourite piece of furniture that is packed with excellent animations (I do have a particular Chez Moi sofa that I’m used to working now and it makes such a great role-play piece) and it is modify, what I do is to make it transparent via the Edit screen and place it in roughly the same spot as the new piece of furniture I want to use for décor. Maybe a little bit higher than the cushions, say, for a sofa. That way you tend to click on it first. The result is that you have a change of décor and also all your favourite animations handy.

I’ve done that for children’s furniture, too, so that if you have a Zooby baby but the furniture is not using the Zooby animations, it still works out nicely. Of course you do need the extra prims but it’s a way around the dilemma.

If you’re really clever, and you can find the actual prim that the animations are placed in, you can strip that off the piece of furniture and it’s less primmage used as a consequence.  But that depends on a lot of factors such as avatar shapes and distances and it may upset the whole thing of course! I’ve done that before and ruined the piece because the animations weren’t strictly Copy so beware.

A quiet corner of the garden

with 5 comments

 

“In a quiet corner of the garden one may rest,
Entertained by birdsong and the slow churn of water in the fountain.
An opportune breeze flutters the branches of the trees and the flowers brush softly against the gazebo window,
A small, white bird dips a graceful beak into water, while in the shadows a hedgehog steals juicy pear slices.
Truly a summer’s feast for ear and eye, where one can take a sip of wine and avoid the midday sun.”

Picnic on the Beach

AniMesh objects add an additional 15 to the Land Impact of an object and more for complex objects, so TLC are offering a Hybrid version, too. Hybrid offers a temporary rez option which once activated will randomly play a 30 second loop of the AniMesh version before it returns to the regular Mesh version.

In addition to the birds, there’s a couple of habitats for them complete with rocks, tropical plants, small waterfall from rocks with pool at base and flowing animated water surround.
