My Plurk! My Rules! Mine! Mine! Mine!

Posted in Plurk Drama with tags , , , , on October 9, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

People crack me up… seriously. Over the past year people have come & gone from my Plurk timeline. Sometimes they remove me, block me, delete their accounts or I remove them. I never ask people why I was removed, in fact I rarely know who I freaking lost on my timeline. Even though I will admit plurk is a huge part of my day, I don’t keep stats on people to figure out who removes me. Even if I did know, why would I ask? I got removed, no big.

Now back to plurk being a big part of my day… I use plurk differently than I use Twitter. Twitter is where I keep probably close to 200+ people that I follow that are “local” folk that I may occasionally hang with in real-life.

Plurk on the other hand is what I use for entertainment purposes. The majority on my timeline are SecondLife folk though I do have a few real life ones mixed in as well. I try to keep my plurk balanced & upbeat.

I balance it by keeping no more than 200 friends at any given time. I know me & beyond 200, I’m really not paying attention to everyone.

I keep it upbeat by removing those that constantly whine, bitch, moan, have consecutive bad days that they feel we should all hear about, have constant bad luck, depressing, boring and bleh!

So why is it that since plurk is such a huge part of my day that I should feel any guilt for removing people? That’s the funny thing, I don’t feel any guilt. Could you imagine if my friends & family did nothing but hang around me all day as Debbie Downers or if they bored me to tears? Chances are I would avoid them or become just as miserable. Well, on plurk I can remove them.

That is *my* prerogative so the next time you feel like attempting to guilt someone over an unexplained removal, save your breath. You wouldn’t like it if everyone you removed attempted to guilt you. Just move on.

Coolest Thing Ever!

Posted in Fashion, Fun & Games, Jelly's Closet, Uncategorized with tags , , , on October 5, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

I’m the first person to scoff at certain roleplay…

Vampires? Really? You are asking me for permission to bite me? In my sick & sometimes twisted Vampire fantasies, the vamps never ask, they just take me all romantically hard & stuff. There’s other RP that I could mention here & also spew my opinions about but then I’d just digress from telling you about the Coolest Thing Ever Ever Ever ever ever ever.

All over plurk I’ve been seeing “doll skins”. At first I was like “o-kay” and then I move on.  I’m not a big fan of lined doll skins. In my opinion dolls don’t have lines because they want to, dolls have lines because of function, they have to! (Yes, I know I am talking about dolls like they’re real, shup!) So if I’m going to be a doll in SL, I’m not going to have lines or buy a skin. Instead I’m going to find a cute updo hair style, wear my regular skin, throw on a tutu & get myself a wind up key… And so I did.

And I’m freaking adorable!

The thing about this key is that it was made to work with a sub collar for doll play. So you can’t just buy the Doll Key and expect it to work. You have to either buy a compatible collar or the “container”. Since it’s a proven fact that I do not make a good sub, slave or pet from past experiences, I went with the “container” (it’s located on the left hand side wall next to the Doll Keys). The instructions are a bit intense, and set up is a bit tricky. The good news is that Briggit & Peggy are awesome with customer service. Briggit helped me get my key up & spinning in no time and she explained to me exactly what I needed to do in terms I could understand.

So I haven’t even told you what I find to be the coolest bit about the key. First of all, you cannot wind yourself. Nope, you are at the mercy of others around you, or screwed if you’re alone. That’s my favorite part. When you aren’t wound, you’re slumped, cannot speak in general chat, key is not spinning, and you cannot tp. Your best bet is to IM someone & ask for a wind up. This is great for anyone looking to make new friends, don’t you think? What better ice breaker do you need other than “Hi I know you don’t know me but could you possibly touch the key on my back and wind me up?” Each wind up is good for 30 minutes so it could also help curb your need to shop for long periods of time.

As with most collars (which is the premise for the “container”, you get to choose a Master that can control you if you choose via blue drop down menu or command words. If you attempt to remove the key, your Master will be notified just like with any standard collar.

A lil from the notecard:

dollsit  (forces the doll to sit)

dolloff  (Shuts the doll down manually)

dollwave  (make the doll wave)

dollfollow (makes the doll follow you.)

There’s much more but since I’m blogging from work & Hawks isn’t my errand boy, you’ll just have to go check it out for yourself. Below are the SLURLS to the things I used to put this look together & make it functionable…

Doll Key & Container: Brigitt and Peggy’s store
A little shop with Amethyst collar plugins, Clockwork Doll keys, Jewelry, Dungeon Torches, piecing gag, collars, Land Rentals on the waterfront.

AO: ANAMATIONS – Music Dancer AO

TUTU: Sn@tch – Murder Ballet

Shoes: Shiny Things – Ballet flat – black

Hair: Truth – Rose – bubblegum

A big thank you and shout out to the one & only Inclinations Moody who had this look first and was nice enough to let me copy her.

Thank you also to HawksRock for grabbing the SLURLS for me and being my new more leniant Master.

Can’t . Seem . To . Focus…

I feel like I get too busy doing this or doing that and I ignore you my little blog of everything JellyBean & Hawks-esque. Well, not today, no sir, you are definitely getting fondled with my hot little keystrokes of love. Afterall I am a little brilliant today, not a lot, let’s not get crazy… Not yet anyway but I’m trying. So my little Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch how have you been? Have you missed me? Awww, I’ve missed you too even though I don’t show it as often as I should.

I really haven’t much to say here and that makes me sad. Forgive me, I can’t help how I am. I guess I could mention Twitter, Plurk, the Meet Up Group, SecondLife, my newest machinima project or even sauerkraut which apparently is only considered not horrifying universally by like 15 other people including Kelsey. I hate the smell of sauerkraut so much and I hope she never brings it for lunch.

Currently I’m reading a book called “Eat. Pray. Love.” by by Elizabeth Gilbert for the Meet Up Group Book Club. Now normally this isn’t a book I would choose on my own to read, but none of the last 5 books I’ve read have been either. This is a true story of one woman’s search for everything across Italy, India and Indonesia. The first part (Italy) had me craving a vaca and a real Italian pizza. This second part (India) has me contemplating daily meditation. Who knows I may be in touch with a higher being or at least my Gastrointestinal Tract sometime in the next decade. One can always dream.

So between reading, my kids, Hawks, my meet up group, twitter & yada yada, obviously I’ve had little time for SecondLife. Though I did manage to log in last night and start on a new machinima with lil Miss Diva Rosie Shark as the lead. Fabulous, right? I make no guarantees but I hope to at least have it put together by Wednesday, possibly.

I’ve meet some fabo locals and even a few Townies on Twitter lately, so that’s exciting. It feels good to have local friends again. Not that I’m a sad pathetic lonely person or anything… Okay shup! I don’t judge you openly like that. Really? Ouch! Now that was uncalled for.

… (annoyed) …

Well kiddo, that’s all I have time for today. The main purpose was definitely to make sure you still felt loved and not neglected. The second was to push that awful picture of me down the page. Haha! Mission accomplished.

Mwah!

Pirates of the Burning Sea … Pre-Play

Posted in Fun & Games with tags , , , , on September 1, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Note: Not an actual picture from "Pirates of the Burning Sea"

Pirates of the Burning Sea™ is an MMORPG featuring high-seas action and adventure in a bold world of pirates and plunder. Set against the backdrop of the New World of the 18th century, players can choose one of three nations — England, France or Spain — or choose the role of a Pirate and battle it out for glory and power.

So I haven’t actually played this yet, but you get my review anyways of the pre-play. So I went to the official site last night after Hawks talked about playing it all day yesterday, thanks to Dancien’s Atomic Valley post.

There’s a 14 Day Free Trial. Huzzah! You’ll need to submit your email address to receive a trial code to participate in the free trial. Mine took forever to arrive, but I’m guessing that may have a bit to do with the fact that the site was acting wonky to begin with.

So once I received my trial code, I could not get it to download on my lappy. I must confess I never did try to download it on my desktop as that seemed like tmlw at the time. Thanks to Luth that told me of another way to download it:

Luth says

ok yeah. I’m DL directly from sony the newest version. use this: launcher.station.sony.com/
So I let it do it’s thing all night. I woke up this morning with “connection error – disconnected” (annoyed face) I started it up again and we’ll see what happens. All in all it’s already been a pain in my ass, so let’s hope it’s worth it. It sure does look cool:

I should include that we decided to play as pirates on the Blackbeard server. So once I *do* get in… Who is with me trying it out???

You know it might be time for a day off when…

umm-huh

YOUR WORK COMPUTER STARTS TALKING TO YOU!

Here’s little snippets that were rolling up my screen…

Even tried texting him.
Nothing helped.
I’m really depressed about this.
You see, I’m just a web server…
with the power of a million hamsters
trying to serve you a simple web page,
and then it doesn’t even exist!
Where does that leave me?!_

I mean, I don’t even know you.
How should I know what you wanted from me?
You honestly think I can *guess*
what someone I don’t even *know*
wants to find here?
*sigh*
Man, I’m so depressed I could just cry.
And then where would we be, I ask you?_

It’s not pretty when a web server cries.
And where do you get off telling me what to show anyway?
Just because I’m a web server,
and possibly a manic depressive one at that?
Why does that give you the right to tell me what to do?
Huh?
I’m so depressed…
I think I’ll crawl off into the trash can and cut myself._

I mean, I’m gonna be obsolete in what, two weeks anyway?
What kind of a life is that?
Two fraking weeks,
and then I’ll be replaced by a .01 release,
that thinks it’s God’s gift to web servers,
just because it doesn’t have some tiddly little
security hole with its HTTP POST implementation,
or something._

I’m really sorry to burden you with all this,
I mean, it’s not your job to listen to my problems,
and I guess it is my job to go and fetch web pages for you.
But I couldn’t get this one.
I’m so sorry.
Believe me!
Maybe I could interest you in another page?
Like a page about bunnies and puppies being friends?_

Although none of them were put on *my* server, of course.
Figures, huh?
Everything here is just idle chat with members.
That makes me depressed too, since I have to serve them,
all day and all night long.
Two weeks of information overload,
and then *pffftt*, consigned to the trash.
What kind of a life is that?_

Now, please let me sulk alone.
I’m so depressed._

An Ode to Daila

Posted in Holidays with tags , , on August 20, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

(sang to the tune of Barry Manilow’s “Mandy”)

I remember all my life rainin’ down as cold as ice
Shadows of a JellyBean
a face through a window
Cryin’ in the night
the night goes into morning.

Just another day
happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes I see a mem’ry
I never realized how happy you made me.

Oh
Daila
well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away
oh Daila

Well you slapped me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you to entertain me today
oh Daila.

I’m standing on the edge of time
I’ve walked away when fun was mine
Caught up in a world of up-hill climbing
The tears are in my mind and nothing is rhyming.

Oh
Daila
well you came and you gave without taking.

Yesterday’s a dream-l face the morning
Crying on a breeze
the boring is calling

Oh
Daila
well you came and you gave without taking…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAILA!

Love Bunches,

Jell & Hawks

My Alt is a SLebrity…

Posted in SecondLife®, Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 5, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

I don’t like to call a lot of attention to her and I’ve stayed quiet for a long time. However with all this hoopla going around about virtual celebrity, why not? I’ve chosen not to use her name in this post to protect her privacy and to keep from compromising her future missions. *side note* I actually did try to call her to ask but for some reason she’s not taking my phone calls.

My alt was born on: 2005-08-28 and has lived a very charmed life. She’s been a heartbreaker, a lover, heartbroken, starred in numerous machinima projects (and some porn), a secret operative during wandie games, rubbed elbows in clubs owned by people who would never let “JellyBean Madison” in and was even given her very own Starax Wand from Starax himself.

I remember the one time that we were able to shop together and how the people flocked over to have snapshots taken with her, some even asked for Freenis autographs. She turned to me and said, “Now I know some people think I’m e-famous, and a lot of people want to be like me, but as I keep pointing out, it’s not really me that’s e-famous, it’s the creator of this fabulous prim hair. But with any luck, all that’s gonna change. I’m gonna be e-famous in my own right.”

And from that day on she lived her dream and achieved her goals. I sat quietly in awe as she climbed every mountain and crossed every sim line. Once just a shy little Ruth among many, she bloomed into the meglomanical star she is today.

Now I know some people think I’m famous, and a lot of people want to be like me, but as I keep pointing out, it’s not really me that’s famous, it’s the office of the president that’s famous. But with any luck, all that’s gonna change. I’m gonna be famous in my own right.
