Does Anyone Have a Landmark?

Picture this. It’s the first day of a new round at event X. Your group chats are filled with people asking for landmarks for event X. Someone gives them the SLurl for the event. “Oh no, I need a landmark for my HUD to work.” They need to know where the event is, and they have it – but it’s not good enough for their HUD. Now, when you look at Seraphim, there are a ton of events happening at any time. Since August rolls in tomorrow,  I am going to do all of you high maintenance people a favor….

Bloggers’ Office Hours Today: 1 – 5 PM SLT

***Update – 6/27: If you would like to be informed of when we have another session, just go to the location in this post and hit the bloggers’ office hours subscriber. It will help me get a better idea as to how many people are interested in something like this. Our first session went well, people came in one at a time, and I had very nice conversations with each person.

Hey guys! Ever since the meetup that I hosted back in October took place, it was always my intention to continue gathering with other bloggers to talk about issues that we may experience. Unfortunately, lots of things happened after that meeting, and eventually my attention got pulled in other directions. After speaking with a few people this weekend, I came up with a new format on how to go about doing these meetings.

bloggers' office hours - second life

We are all very busy people, and perhaps a formal 2 out of 24 hours gathering is a lot to commit to. However, if we were to extend the hours and keep the topic(s) of discussion flexible…people can drop in and out as they need to.

The Allure of Female Dominance

The other day I was asked by a guy whether I was a dominant woman, because I “looked” like one.  I told a friend, and after taking note of what I was wearing said, “It’s a lace top and a mini[skirt]”.

So that got me thinking – how do we perceive someone to be “dominant”?

This is a photo that I took in on of the skyboxes over at the Manor Suites. They have a nice dungeon scene, and I decided to sit in this lovely chair and treat myself to a few puffs on a pipe as I pondered on my question.

Is it their confidence? How they look? Words that they use? How their words affect others? Their physical stance and attributes?

Some people may say that how I am dressed in my photo would definitely make me look like I am dominant. Dressed in black, laced thigh high boots, hair pulled up and out of my face, and the look on my face could give off those signs. Others may see what I am wearing as an invitation to exert control over me because I am a woman that is showing skin, or simply because they perceive me to be a challenge.

On the other hand, if I were perceived as being submissive, could that give me an advantage? If you know how someone will act because of their assumptions, could you not manipulate the situation to be in your favor? If that is the case, could someone who represents him or herself to be submissive actually be dominant in certain situations?

Heartbreak and reconnaissance

I have to be out by noon tomorrow
Said my tall, dark, and handsome lover.
I should had known heartbreak would be soon to follow
When I found those lace panties under the bed cover
I cried because my heart was full of sorrow
My psyche in shambles, my insides hollow.
Blacklace Lingerie

Went to my loft and had a look at his file
Found out that his indiscretion had been for weeks
With his profile picture wearing nothing but a smile
What did he see in them – they were nothing but freaks and geeks?
I opened my window and threw out his laptop computer
Smoking my cigarette, it looks like it’s time for a new suitor.

But there is no way that I’m leaving without a fight
Will go to the house and pick up all of my things
Might even practice a few of my bat swings.
But after I’m done, the place will be worse than a bomb site.
