Whiskey Monday (Better Than the Usual Monday)

I just discovered this blog and Twitter feed.  Serendipitous, which I almost spelled with a "P."  Whiskey Monday is pop-culture-y, ironic, clever, funny, adult, kinda snarky and NSFW and her blog has heart...and guts and... metaphorical organ-y stuff like that.  "I laughed, I cried.  It was better than Cats."  Just the way I like it.  If that's your cup of mash too, check it out.

I want one.  Don't know where I'd put it, but when I saw it, I just went, "WANT."

Sera Lok & Lok's Low-Prim Furniture

Sera Lok. FURNITURE > LOK'S LOW PRIM FURNITURE, Low Prim Furniture (127, 129, 22) - General

Heck, y'all probably already know about this place.  I only just learned about it today, but I'm told it is practically a Second Life institution.  I've talked to a couple of people who fondly remember completely kitting out their first inworld homes with Lok's Low-Prim Furniture.

It is a good place to send new Residents.  The store is extremely easy to navigate.  Sera Lok has maps and directories and TP towers all over the place and the store has an open warehouse feel.  There's a great section of Freebies, Midnight Mania boards and Lucky Chairs and there is a place to pick up a "Help Folder for Newbies."  That said, Sera's stuff looks fresh and current.  There's a mesh section and an adult section with the latest in embedded poses.

I love stores with directories and TP functions.

Midnight Mania, Lucky Chairs, Freebies

Sera seems a good sort.  I saw a post of hers in the Second Life forum that impressed me.  I visited her store and she dropped me a line via an inworld IM and introduced herself.  She was lovely.  Extremely gracious.

The wood color is "Wenge."  The drawers open and close with sound effects.

Here's what she said in the Commerce Forum that caught my eye:

I'm more on the side of letting LL know what the problems are, for my customers' interests and my own,  getting over the fact that it's always an imperfect process, and making sure they know what's wrong so they can FIX it as quickly as possible.
I am operating from a progressive, unemotional viewpoint, so maybe that is where we differ.  I don't care where the blame lies, I'm way more interested in moving forward, finding the problems, and getting them fixed.

I love a business strategy that moves away from the blame game and focuses on solutions, communication and the customer.  Full of win, that one there.

Okay, ya know I spent a good deal of time in there.

The place is huge and I'm told there is a second location too.

I have a tiny little hobby blog.  It's fun for me and I don't have much in the way of expectations beyond that, but if anyone reads this post and checks out Sera Lok's store, well, that'll be the cherry on top.

Maybe you'll think of me when you take a couple of minutes to relax on the swing set by the beach.

Posting to Profile Feed

March 23, 2011
Edited and updated to add the following:

Caitlin Tobias, who is a regular blogger, photographer and profile feed poster, has a blog post with detailed instructions and pictures on how to take pictures and post them to here: 

I highly recommend you check that post out.  Anyway, on with our regularly scheduled programming...

March 20, 2011

It requires using a Viewer with that functionality.  Second Life Viewer 3.0, Firestorm 4.0, Catznip, Dolphin and Exodus are all enabled with Snapshot-to-Feed functionality.

Some Viewers have the camera Snapshot button on the left or the bottom of the screen.  Post to "Profile" if you want it to go to your Feed.  Don't forget the Caption and to consider whether you want to post your Location with the pic.  (You can uncheck Location.)

Oops.  That's the Inventory button.  One over.  The one that looks like a camera.

Note there is a refresh button if you want to redo the pic.
