My computer decided to up and quit the other day with nary a goodbye to warn me—it just beeped and died. Rather than arguing with it, I took it immediately to Computer Gallery and let Phil mess with it—Phil, the miracle worker. He finished it at 5 pm this evening and called and said, “Get it or it’s here til Tuesday.” I was there in a flash.
I was in a funk the entire time. While I could deal with not having access for a few days (in part because I could still read my email from my iPad), it was slowing sinking in that all the data on my computer might be lost. I didn’t care about my photos from SL as much as I cared about photos of last Christmas. My knitting patterns could be replaced; the video of my kid’s sing-a-long couldn’t. When you’re severed from technology, you suddenly appreciate what matters in life.
I had done these photos before the big crash (which is called The Crash of 2011, not to be confused with The Panic of 2010, wherein Phil did slay a virus). I was pretty psyched to show this little pantsuit from Neferia Abel, part of her new summer line. (And I was gonna be one of the first to show it… bah.) Neferia has always been known for her elegance, attention to detail and RL fashion history, and her exquisite textures. This is another I love the antiqued floral print and fluttery ruffled leg and bodice. It’s comfy, cute but also unusual—the print dresses this up quite a bit.
I show it with one of AvaGardner Kungler’s new jewelry sets. Ava first explored the “earth” and has now moved on to the “ocean” in her inspiration. She calls her work “statement jewelry,” and that’s precisely what is. This is not work for a shrinking violet or a Barbie wannabe with its piles of baubles and links. My hair is a cute pigtail ‘do from Helyanwe Vindaloo—she has fantastic blondes and my skin is an interesting look from Irishka Hotshot, offered at the Fashion Garret.
What was it? Dunno.. he reseated the heat sink and reinstalled the operating system, and I honestly think that was it. SL creates some heat in there ;)
