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.


Happy Birthday, Kimberlee!

Man another one in the books, but I wanted to say Happy Birthday to Kimberlee, the woman behind the infamously famous JellyBean Madison.   I would just like to say that I am always glad when we close the gap between our ages back down to 1 rather than 2, so you can quit giving me such a hard time about it.   She is a pretty amazing woman, as many of you get to see glimpses of through her continuous sharing and often times oversharing of her life with our virtual friends.   In the end though I have to say that the JellyBean I know doesn’t hold a candle to the RL personality of Kimberlee, and every year that goes by is just another reason to celebrate and look forward to the next 75 times we get to do it.   Your one in a million babe, and I love you and am very happy I found you even if you were thousands of miles away.

Pirates of the Burning Sea … Pre-Play

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:
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???

This cracked me up…

If you have no idea what I do for a living, just know this, the dull moments are far & few as of late.

The file is 8 pages long – you will need to put up 16 posters to
complete this task (thus, you will need to print out the file twice.) Each page has a short story on it in its entirety – you should put them up somewhere plausibly arty or intellectual – for instance, on the campus of a university, or in a bohemian part of town like the Mission in San Francisco or Greenwich Village in Manhattan. Examples of places that are not appropriate for the posters are primeval rainforest, municipal parking lots, cattleyards, elementary schools, the top of Everest, the void of interstellar space, Bob Jones University and depressed industrial parks. Within these guidelines, be creative – I’ll settle for anyplace people are likely to be avid
readers and interested in the arts.

High-traffic, captive audience kinds of places are always good – toll plazas on bridges, public transportation and so on (if this can be safely, legally and courteously done, that is.)

16 Things that you never needed to know about JellyBean/Kimberlee!

Posted in challenge/meme with tags , , , on January 13, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

I was  tagged by Ana Lu! It was originally done on Flickr but Hawks said it should go here too. So here is 16 things about me that you never needed or wanted to know…

1 – I use to be a store manager of an auto parts store, but I’m not big on working on cars.

2 – I procrastinate about almost everything.

3 – For the 1st time ever, I followed my heart & moved to Kansas in Feb of last year.

4 – I’m very competitive & strong willed, I’m not exactly an easy one to break.

5 – When I feel emotional, I write privately or publicly.

6 – I just learned to love caramelized onions.

7 – I would rather visit an art museum over going on a nature hike.

8 – I’ve learned that getting to know someone takes a lot of time but carpooling is just enough time.

9 – I am a jealous person, it’s a fatal flaw. I do not share well, never have.

10 – I mostly consider myself an only child even though I have older siblings because they moved out when I was still young.

11 – I feel very lucky to have the job I have with a self-taught education in CSS/HTML.

12 – I am extremely sensitive, but unless you’re close to me, you’d probably never know.

13 – I am overly opinionated but rarely regret things I say.

14 – I like to get my nails/toes done at minimum once a month because it makes me feel pretty.

15 – I own more red/blue now that I’ve moved to Kansas then I ever have in my entire life.

16 – My real name is Kimberlee, and I hate being called Kim.

Now I know I’m suppose to tag 16 other people but I don’t want to, so…

**I tag Rosie Shark, HawksRock Gunawan, Akasha Nyak, and Alexander Burgess**

Happy Birthday, Kimberlee!

Posted in Holidays, Real Life with tags , , on September 19, 2008 by hawksrock

Saturday,  September 20th a certain JellyBean Madison’s human is going to be celebrating a birthday.   Please join me in wishing, Kimberlee a very happy birthday!!   She has blessed all of our lives with her vitality, her sarcasm, her passion, her compulsive blogging, and most of all her totally infectious giggle which is enough to send anyone within a ten yard proximity into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.  She draws people to her like flies to ____ (wait I think honey actually has 5 letters.)   I am one very lucky guy, and I am thankful every day that she had the guts to come to Kansas, and in the face of much adversity, continues to shine brighter than ever.   Be sure to check out the Sandbar webcam around 11:30 (central time) to see her up on the bar, receiving her first hurricane shot from her favorite bar in the world.   I love you baby, and wish you the bestest birthday evah!!

More than you ever needed to know…

I think memes have seasons. Like they die off for awhile like leaves in fall, but then they fully come a’bloomin again later, like spring. Anyroo, this should put every meme to rest on my side anyways. Haha!

Who the hell is JellyBean Madison/Kimberlee:

I don’t like onions – cooked, caramelized, raw or otherwise. However I do love onion rings. I don’t eat seafood, none, not ever, don’t even ask me to, BUT I do use oyster sauce in my Spring Rolls. I love cheese… my favorite is Port Wine but it doesn’t really matter much as long as it isn’t stinky cheese, yet I never eat cheese on my burgers. I love avocados & will eat them with a spoon & nothing else. I refuse to eat hotdogs, unless of course they are uncooked & frozen solid. It’s like a hotdog pawp of wub. I do not eat chicken or anything else that is on the bone where I must rip the meat off like a savage. I do like crispy chicken tenders though with a side of Buttermilk Ranch.

I prefer winter over summer when I feel I am getting full use out of my layers of clothing. I would rather be wearing a ton of clothes than opposed to fewer. I like the cold because it’s a lot easier to get warm than it is to cool down, most times.

My favorite flower is the daffodil. It has a lot of meaning to me… it represents the new hope and promise of the longer days brought by springtime. Also the American Cancer society has Daffodil Days which I participated in every year when I lived in California. To the ACS it represents the hope we all share for a future where cancer is no longer a life-threatening disease. I’ve lost a lot of family to cancer, daffodils help me to remember.

My favorite color was & still is green though since my 4 years in SL, pink has seeped into my RL. I find myself buying more pink things (i.e purse, laundry basket, etc).

I use to collect frog things – figurines, pens, garden crap, etc. It was so bad once that no one knew what to get me for my birthday because chances were if it was frog-related, I owned it. Now I seem to have a tenancy to collect monkey & penguin crap.

I don’t wear a lot of jewelry mostly because I can’t afford any. I prefer sterling silver to gold because I believe gold is ugly & gawdy. I bought myself this petite cute silver necklace, and it broke. *saddness* I have a total of 9 piercings (3 in one ear, 4 in the other, tongue & nose). I rarely ever wear my tongue ring anymore but never take out my nose ring. I have a total of 4 tattoos, 2 of which from early teenhood are so minor that no one really notices them. My bigger ones are a tramp-stamp on my lower back of a frog peeking out of a pond, and a yellow jacket on my right ankle with B.W.A (Bitch With Attitude) underneath it.

I enjoy playing & watching basketball. I watch football every year and would love a fantasy team this season. I’m not a fan of the Olympics.

I’m a single mom and have my two youngest boys here with me. My oldest, my daughter, stayed in Hawaii. Juggling life & motherhood on my own is hard, sucks on most days, but in the end it’s worth it (mostly when they’re asleep). *smiles*

I’m a self-taught html/css coder with minor graphic knowledge. By that I mean I know enough Photoshop to keep my ass afloat. :p

Some of my favorite random things are puppies, duckies, chickens, sunny but cool days, snow, pickle sammiches, my toes, snuggling with my Hawks at every opportunity anywhere, picnics, music (all but country & death metal), road trips, water, driving boats (I really should invest in one someday), being creative, driving my car, sleeping in, playing footsies, Young Elvis, Ludo, Morrissey *swoons*, slow dancing by candlelight, Saturdays, LOLcat, and I’m sure there’s more but this post is getting insanely long.

This should cover most if not all memes. I think. Hah!
