Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

Berry’s Challenge this week was a real tough one. I’m terrible at poems and rhyming. Meter and I don’t get along. I’ve always been more of a freeform pose type of person. So trying to fit that into a semi-self-imposed-rigid format nearly drove me to drink.


They say events can be inspiration too. Maybe that’s why my little Acrostic Poem took a left turn at Albuquerque.

Meme instructions: Write an acrostic poem(s) using your Second Life name or any word describing your Second Life. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so others can come by and read your poem(s) as well!

Earlobes pierced, and a few other things
Losing his mind because SL blew away over 1K building sculpts, maps and textures.I know it doesn’t rhyme!

As tempting as it was to put on a Ruth skin and have no hair or attachments, my other folders seem to be intact. But my Single folder, !Building Sculpts & Maps, went poof. Gone. G’bye. See ya. No note, not even a farewell from the window as it got into a cab. Thousands of items kaput. I’m impatiently waiting on SL Concierge Support to get back to me as to whether or not it can be recovered.

I suppose its a good thing I have been incredibly lazy about actually sorting and putting away items into their correct folders or I would have lost ALL of them. As it is, probably 80% of them are gone.

Oy vey,

    What an absolutely horrible way to start the week! I hope you’re successful in restoration.

    <–really wants to know what else is pierced.

    OMG! I now have a rationale for not starting on clearing up the unfathomable abyss that is my inventory. So sorry to hear about your loss 😦

    Ouch…ouch…ouch. When you think about it our SL lives can be wiped out even quicker than our FL ones given all are kept on a server. Mind you if they pulled the plug tomorrow on SL the same thing would happen….

  5. Oh man, I hope some way you can get that folder back. 😦 I love the acrostic and I second what Petr said. 😛

  6. What really kills me, is that I have been told that restores are possible. And yet even as a concierge customer, I can’t get one. I have one last thing to try which is logging into the beta grid to try an asset grab. Fingers crossed!

    Oh and as for the piercings, Mr. Vanbeeck and Ms. Singh, there’s 28 total. The rest I shall leave to your imagination. 🙂
