ps-melissa, i think you spelled your name wrong? (you also spelled Kid Rock wrong)
i'm actually surprised how passive, not even aggressive most of you are being. of course none of you actually are interested in having a conversation with me, i understand you have WOW to play and kids in your real life to go not read to while you put them to bed and drive them to the sitters before you go in to work to play more WOW. still, i am waiting for anyone to actually direct their comments to me in a more direct fashion. i assume you all can't find me on second life even via search which is a pity because there are some quite easy ways to pull my profile up. anyway, i see that effectively this will be a totally passive aggressive ongoing dealio until all the followers and fangirls and boys calm down their indignation on behalf of someone they don't know and just would feel too cognitively dissonant about if they actually admitted that stores can be crap and still be popular at the same time. do you guys know the stores in real malls like wet seal? well, i know some teenage girls who are very ready to defend buying preteen stripper clothes and i think you all sound about the same with your replies, which by the way, if i am guilty of whining or being childish, then certainly all of this subsequent and seemingly endless drama is ....my fault? right, you're the ones continuing to link, talk, thread, and post about me and my words. at the end of the day, if i made one person cringe for a second, or uncomfortable in resolving their own opinions, or even possibly forced them by dint of aggression to form some of their own opinions, then i feel good and i'm happy :D thank you all, again, your hate and silliness drives me likewise to more hate and silliness, and what's not to love about that?
at the time of this posting a full 1/3rd of respondents have voted that they in fact have not left their house today. so when i go out on behalf of all of you to get my coffee and cigs, i will do my best to get hit by a bus, but i think the buses may be waiting for the day you eventually leave yours? i could be wrong. i don't typically think like a bus, but some of you seem to have insight on that front so please continue speculating and using tired old lines. i'm thrilled to hear them for the 144th time.
some of the responses include indicating that "okrebecca made ivey remove her snatch hunt gift from the twisted hunt"
first of all. the hunt is called twisted. how you going to name a hunt after mental illness and then not allow a little of it to run amok in the frenzy? ivey herself chose to remove the gift, for all of two hours as i gather, because she needs to keep giving freebies and promoting with gifts just like the rest of you designers reading KNOW you have to do, which is why you all have lucky chairs, freebies, subscribos, and possibly even know me as a routine and dedicated customer. it's not my fault someone like ivey has such an overwhelming ego that she thinks she can blame me when she has a hissy fit and in point of fact ALLOWS ME to make *HER* and her alone remove the gift. also, the gift removed? let's see, it was a basic textured black dress. with a prim skirt. WOW. a black dress! OH AND A HAT! a hat? like the free ones on the tables of tons of other equally if not more talented designers? no. this is a SNATCH hat, and a SNATCH black primmed dress. i MUST HAVE THIS, OH LORD, HOW WILL I LIVE WITHOUT ONE MORE BLACK DRESS, SKIRT, AND HAT IN MY INVENTORY!?$YP*O@%&
list of sn@tch items in my inventory i couldn't live my second life without:
beach shack trailer, is this where you grew up out in salem ivey?
enema bag & pole
...and someone with this kind of sense of humor can't take a little abuse???
and speaking of twisted mentally ill people, i'm eager to open up this incident into an ongoing discussion of mental illness and internet use but ...i am terrified none of you could handle putting any actual real life meaning into any of the namecalling and catfighting. afraid it would make more of you blame me for the reason you cry all day, and cut yourself when your boyfriend wants an open relationship, and hate yourself more for not living up to your own expectations of success for yourself. i took my meds last night! probably a large part of why i sleep so well. but my point is, some of you need medication more/equally much as i do, and i'd really love to help anyone who seriously got upset over something as ultimately meaningless as this.
"and there's a million of us just like me
who cuss like me; who just don't give a fuck like me
who dress like me; walk talk and act like me
and just might be the next best thing but not quite me!
i'm like a headtrip to listen to
cuz i'm only giving you things you joke about with your friends inside your living room
the only difference is i got the balls to say it in front of y'all and i don't gotta be false or sugar-coated at all
so will the real shady please stand up
and put one of those fingers on each hand up
and be PROUD to be out of your mind, and out of control
and one more time, loud as you can (comment)
how does it go???"
OMGUH the eminem overlap neverends! hang on i got some more i listened to in the car while trying to get hit by a bus...
"testing! attention please!
feel the tension soon as someone mentions
here's my ten cents, my two cents is free
a nuisance? who sent...YOU sent for me!"
"and sometimes it seems everybody only wants to discuss ME
so this must mean i'm disgustING
but it's just ME, i'm just OBSCENE"
moar thoughts, because i don't stop thinking just because you wish i would
re: "we should all be terribly grateful to the organizers of these hunts"
-hunts are constant, neverending, and if there was any kind of organization at all we'd just have one 400 gift hunt called 'the twisted sick residents of second life love being vainly kissed by their greatest online love' and have it over with
-organizers of hunts tend to be doing it primarily to get their store landmark spammed in every related notice that goes out
-if you haven't figured out by now with your blog surfing and plurk lurking, you can get anything and everything you want in the highest level of quality for FREE on second life. not even including hunts. hunts are just something i get distracted by when i'm visiting a store for a completely distinct set of free, dollar, or chair items. people like to think their second life freebies are a huge gift we should bend over backwards to kiss their ass for on here, when in fact, it's a gift for any customer or second lifer to spend any lindens at all, and to reiterate, it's also completely unnecessary that we buy ANYTHING at all from you, so you look at that gift horse and investigate his teeth for a while. our purchasing power allows you to maybe even do what you want all day without even leaving your house so you get to make your "art" and make a real living off of it too via an internet portal, which is not only incredible but also you should consider yourself LUCKY to make any money at all, ANYWHERE, in the united states, at the current time, with the current state of things.
re: bloggers being snot nosed bullies
you think i'm bad? as i've said before, and repeatedly, i buy things on second life, with money, that i transferred from my account page by using the "buy lindens" button. i know some of you have never done this. some of you resort to trying to pole dance so you can buy anything you feel worth spending lindens on in world. i just let it go to the mastercard bill, but the lindens go to your account and you get my cash money in the end. not just that, but i've spent literally hundreds of united states dollars in lindens on second life in the past year. not that this is necessarily something to be boasted about, but it's the truth, and i know many of you have literally messaged me and discussed with me how grateful YOU in fact are for me to support you and your digital art exploits. i am quoting possibly the best loved designer on the grid and a participant of this and all previously loved and blogged hunts when i say, "it is because of customers like you, rebecca, that we can continue to do the work we want to on second life."
that being said, i know of a certain blogger, possibly named wrenja, and she is just one of many i'm sure, who has the balls and the lack of decency to straight up ask store owners and designers for the freebies before they go out, or before they wait their turn on the lucky chair, and they just want them all neatly piled into a folder for them to contemplate even posting pictures of later. or not. how do i know any of this? because, designers enjoy chatting with shoppers who hang out in store, or stalk lucky chairs, and several of them end up messaging me, and one in particular i spoke with regarding wren's unbelievable sense of entitlement for a good several hours late one night at a chair.
bloggers collect massive amounts of free gifts on top of the free gifts that go out that need advertising because the store owners want to make the process a little friendlier. that's all well and good but some of you like wren have some bigass distasteful balls to go up to an artist and ask them to just give you their shit for free because you may or may not eventually decide to post some pictures that a couple hundred people will view and search for afterwards. i have never done this. i WILL NEVER do this. i pay for all of my stuff, and as much as i see some of you viewing this i wish i could ask for my money back from because you ended up being mindless sheep in the grand scheme of things, i'm not going to. if ivey is so fucking indignant about me ever having been a customer, why doesn't she pay me the thousands of lindens back of my money that is not good enough for her apparently? why? because she already withdrew it from her account to pay February's rent. that's why.
re: plurk itself, and all of you who link me
hey! plurk eh? is that like facebook for people who didn't go to college? anyway, i see that most of you have all your info set to private, thereby not permitting me to take the piss out of you. as you will see, you can find all sorts of information on me and i'm not hiding any of it. i know this is terrifying in the implications. you might get caught downloading cp on your work computer if people saw you age playing in your roleplay fantasies and so forth. well, i want to go to law school, myself. and i think this nonsense is going to be great debate training except that i think in the courtroom you're not allowed to resort to calling someone fat, ugly, or a bitch, in defense of your case.
