Top Five Favourite Things

Top Five Favourite ThingsPose: oOo Studio – Attachment (Couples Pose) — by Olaenka Chesnokov

Every so often I look at my inventory and wonder “what are the five things that I’d miss if Second Life® ate them?”

Occasionally I can answer that question and stick to only five items. Other times the list basically ends up being my entire inventory. In a peculiar way the latter is one of the ways I notice I’m having a bad day because I don’t want to part with anything as it’s all too important. The emotional bonds that tie me — to even pixel things — can be quite strong. This is usually the time I employ every trick in the book to self soothe, disconnect from the matrix internet for a little while and just get in touch with me again.

After watching the movie Leap Year last weekend with the Eidann I was spurred into action writing my Top Five Favourite Things. At least they’re my favourite things for this month. Okay, maybe this week. Fine! Maybe they’re just my favourite things for today!

  1. Maitreya Mesh Body Lara — totally not a surprise
  2. My office/blogger desk under the stairs in my little home
  3. MishMish My Desk Mailbox in Orchid — because this thing is adorable and every time I sit at my other desk my mailbox makes me smile! It’s a little piece of me in a corporate world
  4. Cheeky Pea ottoman — because pink is one of my favourite colours and I am totally on a Moroccan kick in both worlds and I love this so much I wish I had one in real life so I can sit on it and hand write my blogs!
  5. Sir Storm of Geddon — this little guy is my best friend. He’s always there, he always compliments my shoes and tells me I’m awesome. What’s not to love about this purrfect pixel kitty?!

And because I am awesome I thought I’d also add my Top Seven Favourite Things in Real Life. I mean, clearly I like to write lists so why not just go all out and add another list with two bonus favourites?!
It’s okay, I know you’ll thank me when you’ve read them all!

  1. Coffee!! — I wasn’t kidding when I wrote something about coffee in all of my profiles, everywhere. It even filtered into some of my real life profiles! Oops!
  2. Falling asleep listening to the rain — actual rain, not the rain that plays on my sleep cycle app. Although that rain works too when there’s no real rain!
  3. Compliments — both giving them and receiving them. As you’re probably well aware my interpersonal skills aren’t the greatest — Oh Em Gee Raz, no way! —  so when I actually notice something and mention how lovely someone looks, or take a moment to appreciate a nice thing someone has done, I feel almost human! While I do like getting compliments I’m not very good at receiving them. I usually end up responding with a compliment (which is apparently an okay thing to do) or kind of squirming in my chair until the awkward moment has passed.
  4. Kitty cuddles — if you have a cat then you know all to well how aloof they can be. When a cat loves you, and wants cuddles or belly rubs, you know you’re a very special human to them. I guess I just like being reminded that I’m a good human from time to time!
  5. Movie dates (at home) with the Eidann — we love spending time together and relaxing. I love curling up together and experiencing the wonders of Netflix Australia, which is still quite terrible — it doesn’t even have The Craft or Clueless! We usually end up watching a random movie in the hopes it might be interesting. Mostly we end up watching something really good, occasionally we end up with something horrible
  6. Makeup — I love makeup with a passion! I’d love to say I’ve got some talent applying it but I’d be totally lying! It doesn’t really matter because I enjoy learning new techniques and being introduced — via YouTube Makeup Guru videos usually — to new fascinating, and often hugely over priced, products. The joy is in the learning rather than the final result!
  7. Notebooks — the kind you write or draw in rather than the computer version. Like pens, I have an ever growing stash of notebooks that I can barely bring myself to use! They’re all too special — even the generic ones — for me to ruin with benign ideas or idle writing. They need to have an amazing purpose! I may even group particular pens with special notebooks…

That’s it! Two whole lists of my favourite things in Second Life® and real life! I suppose I could have added my penchant for lists, which is entirely new for me, but I felt that was a little too obvious!

  1. Top Five Favorite Things in SL are:

    1) You.
    2) ???
    3) ???
    4) ???
    5) Profit?

    Also, looking at the butt on the Maitreya Lara body that I just bought, because ZOMG so sexy! Is it weird to perv your own mesh butt? Would it be weirder if we got together and mutually perved each-other’s mesh butts? Can I say the word “butt” a few more times in this comment?

    I hope this comment helps to bring in lots of strange, kinky Google search clicks to your website. *Cheeky Grins*

    PS: Butts. ❤

    • I totally perv my own butt all the time! It’s lucky I have to sit down in meetings otherwise I’d be perving my butt and not getting anything else done *whistles and looks around innocently*

      Also, OMG YOU HAVE MESH BODY! Must play with the smooth body! I mean, err, awesome!! I have to stalk you more so I can see it in the pixel flesh!
