As the days grow short, some faces grow long.  But not mine.  Every autumn, when the wind turns cold and darkness comes early, I am suddenly happy.  It’s time to start making soup again.  ~Leslie Newman


Someone asked me what I was doing this weekend and I didn’t have a lot to say. How do I explain to someone that spending time knitting a hat for my friend for Christmas or making soup or cleaning leaves from the yard or working on my blog are all pretty damn exciting to me even though they are not an “event.”

Throw a poncho on over a long skirt and top and I am ready to visit the farmer’s market to get some late harvest veggies for soup. My poncho is an actual Afghan pattern laid on a sculpty with clever little fringes hanging off from Trill Zapatero. Top is from Beth Porterfield, who has a great little store full of well-drawn separates—tops, pants, boots. My skirt is one of Sissy Pessoa’s newest releases for the fall, a long heavy fabric skirt cinched with a ornate belt buckle and fabric belt that curls around. I was a little skeptical at first of this long sculpty, expect Sissy employed the alpha layer to completely get rid of the legs so no one will see your legs emerging  and you can just forget about having to wear shoes. (I do look shorter but I don’t mind.)


My skin is one of Gala Phoenix’s golden toned beauties. I like this one because when I wear dark eyes (these from Ikon Innovia, who makes the best dark brown eyes in SL, hands down), I do not look “white” as much as of mixed race, and we know that in today’s world a LOT of people are not “white” or “black” or “brown” but of multiple ethnicities. Queue Marlowe adds to this with her crazy perfect kinky curls. I saw a girl at a restaurant the other day with hair like this and dang if she wasn’t the cutest thing in the place—kinky curls cut just right, nerdy glasses, ripped stockings, a little mini under a poncho. I almost stopped her to tell her but I would have seemed crazy. You can’t just IM someone in RL and say, “OMG best hair ever! Where did you get?”


When I was a young man, I had a mentor on women and he said when you meet a woman that you think you like, don’t ask her for a drink. Take her out for a bowl of soup. Because a woman who can enjoy a bowl of soup is bound to be more interesting.
