So after an unnecessarily drawn out moving process.

(Items arriving in separate pieces on separate days. Having to resign the lease twice. Door knobs not functioning.)

I have relocated into my new cozy apartment. I'm quite pleased. The only problem is that there seems to be some kind of holdup on the cable/ethernet. The apartment club house says it's the cable's fault. The cable says it's the club house's fault. It is just terribly over-complicated. So, I might be pirating the wireless from an unknown benefactor in my building. But still! I'm alive, and oh, how I have missed all my SL friends.

And, I'm in time for the Hair Fair. Damn, I have good timing!

Oh! Tag!

(angry face for moving)

All my moving drama has been putting a cramp on my bloggage lately. (Sorry!) I just been preoccupied with putting things in boxes and refinishing my new bedroom set. But, I look at my blog and feel all guilty. (And even more guilty about WTF, I neeeeeed to post there...) So, I thought I'd do a little something. I decided to answer Cen's little question thingy. Yay!

5 things you don't know about me in RL:
-I cannot tan, I go outside with the intention to tan on a regular basis, but all I ever achieve is getting a sunburn and a few more freckles.
-I am a compulsive cleaner. I just find myself tiding up all the time.
-I hate going on vacations where there are no flushing toilets. I need toilets, and preferably electricity.
-I love dogs. They are pretty much the best pet ever. So happy and loving.
-I'm seriously afraid of heights. Ladders scare me. Sometimes stairs scare me. I know, it's really sad. :P

5 things you don't know about me in SL:
-I get really scared of people who randomly say hello to me. I just have an irrational fear that they are creepers or something. (I really need to get over this...)
-I have an obsession with tee shirts. When I see them in stores I am almost compelled to buy them. That and bikinis.
-I constantly prowl past notices in all my groups.
-I am always displeased with the shoes in my inventory, even as I accumulate more.
-Sometimes I'm shy to start conversations, but I love it when people start them with me! (As long as they are not random new people, then I get scared.... see number one in SL.)
