Boy, have I ever been.Â Lazy, I mean.Â Although, not really.Â I mean, first I was away on vacation.Â There went two weeks.Â Then there were houseguests, which was great and fun and all, although it did put a serious crimp in my SL time.Â Then, oh joy of joys, there was plumbing tragedy and carpet cleaning and associated headaches.Â And now Iâ€™m kinda swamped with RL work, go figure.Â Please be assured, I am not dead–Iâ€™m still here, still shopping, and still working on putting some posts together to share with you.Â Â So, check back once in a while!Â Iâ€™ll be here as much as I can be.Â

IÂ don’t do a lot of one-off posts these days, partly because the more ambitious/complex posts, time-consuming as they are, are not just fun but rewarding for me.Â I keep telling myself, though, that I shouldn’t resist featuring the occasional particularly nice solo item.Â In theory (ahem) a post like this should be quicker and easier to put together, you still get to do some shopping (assuming you like what you see), and I stillÂ get to accessorize!Â I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a win-win to me.Â You be the judge.

Shiryu Musashi has been designing for the SL fashion scene for coming up on five years nowâ€”his store, Musashi-Do, officially opened on November 27, 2004.Â I donâ€™t know about you, but this is significantly earlier than my own rez date.Â He has a well-earned reputation for painstaking perfectionism, and his hand-painted fabric textures are beyond reproach.Â Shiryu has recently released some new suits for menâ€”something thatâ€™s always nice to see!â€”and these are accompanied by his own innovation in dress neckwear:Â the InfiniTIE.

I donâ€™t know about you, but Iâ€™m on the never-ending quest for the perfect skin.Â Really, isnâ€™t everybody?Â Surely Iâ€™m not the only guy who at some point has said, â€œI really love This Skin, but if only it had the abs from That Skin, or the face from The Other Skinâ€¦then it would be perfect!â€Â Sound familiar?Â Yeah, I thought it might.
Now, donâ€™t get too excited.Â Iâ€™m not here today to tell you that Iâ€™ve found The Perfect Skin, or even The Perfect Skin For Me.Â Either of those would be a hell of a thing.Â However, as momentous as such a discovery would be, I might just have to hang it up after that.Â I mean, what would be left?Â Even yet still more sculptie high-tops?Â Not that thereâ€™s anything wrong with that.

Welcome back!Â Oh, wait–that’s what you’re supposed to say to me.Â Anyway, here we are, together again.Â Sean and I had a fantastic vacation, probably with really too much crammed into it if you get right down to it–but isn’t that the best kind?Â Sometimes it felt rather like “If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium.”Â Yet still it was great.Â And here’s to turning SL friends into RL friends!Â Heya Loopy, Angie and Skid, that’s right, I’m talking about you!Â
It had been an age since he had seen New Babbage.Â He couldnâ€™t say for certain how longÂ it had been since he had left, but after what had happened, it was to no oneâ€™s surprise that he had made himself more or less permanently scarce.Â (He understood that the incident had come to be known as â€œThe Coppercog Debacle,â€ but the less said about that, the better.)Â Only an occasion of dire import could have induced him to return.Â He supposed that the reading of oneâ€™s fatherâ€™s last will and testament would qualify, no matter how estranged that father might have been.
