Patience.

Sometimes it’s so hard to wait for something you want. There are days when it’s easier and then there are ones when you just feel like it’s never going to happen. And then you just have to rely on faith I suppose. Doesn’t always make it easier, but if you know it’s worth it then there’s not much else you can do. Hopefully the time will be right soon and if it’s not….well. Than you wait some more.

Decorating is one of my favorite things to do in SecondLife. It’s one of the ways I relax. I just toss on some music and see what I can come up. Sometimes projects get half ass-ed or never finished. Sometimes function has to override function. But sometimes I put together something that I really love. This is one of those times. I got to cuddle up in this gazebo with the Priest this morning and it was just… peaceful. And I just really love this picture, ok.

Voice & DJs

Snapshot_025

Out of curiosity, how do you feel about people using voice when there’s an event with a DJ?

Most of the time I leave it up to the DJ. I know some prefer voice be off and some don’t care. My personal preference is to have voice off, especially if it’s a scheduled DJ set. If it’s something informal and a DJ just felt like streaming for the hell of it, then I don’t mind voice on. But if it’s a THEMED and scheduled event, I’ve got the stream on and I’m listening to the DJ. Not to you banter with your buddies.

But then, maybe that’s just a personal preference.

She threw a fit.

Well today was a day.

We had a casual truth or dare event going on tonight. People seemed to be enjoying themselves and things were going well. Girls and guests were having a good time and tips were happening and it was nice. One of the newer hires came in and got on stage. She’d mainly only had freelancing experience before, but I’d felt like she could be good once she learned that things are a bit more structured in the club than they are at freelance sims. So then all of a sudden random people start coming in. Some were naked. Some looked like they were just… out of place. It turns on this girl had been using the SIN tracker to “kidnap” people and force TP them into the club. One of the girls that got kidnapped got angry and started endlessly spamming local, during our event, that we were misusing the SIN tracker hud. It took me a minute to figure out what was even going on. It was just suddenly we had this angry girl spamming local and random naked people wandering around. Thankfully two of the managers were on the floor too and we managed to wrangle all the trouble makers and get that sorted.

Then we turned our attention to the girl that had TPed them in. She logged out of her tipjar but was still standing around. One of the managers IMed her and told her that due to her conduct and disrupting the event and business in general, we wanted to put her on a trainee tag for a week so she could get acclimated to how the club was run. The girl ignored this completely. Wouldn’t acknowledge it. Claimed she only saw “blank space” where the message about it was typed. Then she just stopped replying at all. So, I estate TPed her home. And she lost her shit.

Came back into the club and spammed local and our VIP group about how terrible we were and how the managers and I all acted like we were better than everyone, etc. etc.

This is just par for the course in some ways. Every once in a while you get a girl that just causes trouble. But I think this one bothered me so much because I fought so hard to give her a chance because I felt like she could be good. Literally minutes before this I had been telling the managers that I was willing to give her another chance because I felt like she had potential and could be really good. Then she just… flipped her shit on us. The event had been going well and it was a fun time then just…. immediately the mood dropped, of course. Things are back on track now and we’re certainly not going to miss that ridiculousness, but ugh. That was an experience I could have gone without having tonight.

Writing is hard.

Fuck, I suck at writing. I have 2 or 3 “drafts” done up that I haven’t finished. Things that, at the time, were fairly important to me but now… Now I don’t know. It’s been a little while and I’m not sure really delving into it at this point would make any sort of positive difference. I still may finish them one of these days if something pushes the right [or, “write”…hahaha…ha?] buttons.

I do want to write more. I know I say that in every post I make, every 3-6 months. But I mean it. Writing helps me focus and clear my thoughts and it’s something else I can do when I just need to take a few moments to myself. Which I don’t really do often enough some days. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll start trying to do OoTD stuff too, just to push myself to DO something. Not that I want to be a fashion blogger and join that SL world. But I just want something else to do for myself.

Either way. Here’s your quarterly “I’m alive” post.

Beware cheap imitations!

This may be one of the weirdest things that has happened to me in recent memory.

So, occasionally I have people that pretend to be me. It happens. They generally either just take bits and pieces of my profile, pictures, display name, etc. Some try to play it off as if they ARE me and others just use my words/pictures and pretend they did them. Usually it makes me laugh a bit. There was one that impersonated me and tried to con my employees out of money, pretending like they were me and I was in a RL emergency. Thankfully none of them fell for that and that account has since been banned.

Anyways. Yesterday I was standing around on a platform in the sky, as one does, and a girl that used to work for me and now manages another club IMs me. She lets me know that a friend of hers has copy/pasted one of my picks and the only reason they knew she was doing it is because the person in question hadn’t removed my e-mail address. Let’s call the impersonator FAKELILY from here on out.

I get a bit of a laugh out of it and go to look at the profile. Sure enough, one of the picks is directly ripped from my profile. And recently as well since I’d just updated that pick on Friday and my new edits where used. I laughed a bit and clicked another pick. And there was her e-mail. “Send all giftcards to slutfallen@______.com”. I blink.

That’s not my e-mail address. I mean, yes, that IS my SecondLife name, but that is not now, nor has ever been my e-mail address. I never made that or used it. I certainly never typed it out for her to copy since well. It’s not my e-mail address. Then it dawns on me. She must have made it. She made herself an e-mail address…using my SecondLife name. I… what. WHAT?

I do a bit more digging. I send her an e-mail, where she denies having any idea who I am. She forgot to change her name on the e-mail so I looked them up on Facebook. I won’t disclose any RL information on them, but we’ll say I was a bit surprised that their RL Facebook also has my name on it. I look at their SL Facebook profile. It says they work in Vegas, live in Dallas. I was born and raised in Vegas. Live in Dallas.

I………what.

At this point, it’s creepy but there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s not like my name is copyrighted and there’s nothing I have of them directly claiming to BE me. I did message the owner of the club she works at now, as well as one she is applying to, to let them know about the situation. My concern isn’t that she’s using my pick. Or, was. She has since changed it. But rather that that e-mail addresss uses a name of mine that is fairly well known in some areas of SL. I don’t want people e-mailing her or giving her gifts thinking she is me. I’m not sure what her intent with all of this is. I’m just stumped.

Back Again?

FETISHY.png

So, hey. It’s been what, close to a year since I wrote? I know, I know. That’s not unusual. I tend to take breaks now and then. But I realized recently that I miss writing. I miss just babbling about nonsense and posting pics and the occasional OOTD. So. Here I am!

2017. Babygirls just recently celebrated our 2nd Anniversary. The club is still going strong, and is better than ever. It’s self sufficient, and then some. We average between 80 and 110 employees, though over the summer at one point we had 130! We have some great ideas we’re going to implement moving forward, and I’m really excited for them. I think it will only improve things ever more!

DJ is…well and completely gone. He contacted me once in the last 6 months or so on Twitter telling me he’s working on his site again and asking if we can do some cross promoting/advertising, but I never heard from him again. Probably for the best since he’s not exactly what I’d call reliable. *shrugs*

We have a Fetish/BDSM party coming up this Friday, which is what the above pic is for, and I hope it goes well. We do themed events every Friday now, with DJ Emi on from 7pm-9pm SLT. And sometimes they’re packed. We’ve had to rez out more tipjars for all the girls!

I’m going to try to update the look of this blog this week too cuz…damn. Its not cute. lol.
