I met Kiki Meowmix at SLCS practice tonight. We wore Maddy’s cool Winter Cheer catsuits. These outfits have hoods so we had to take our own hair off and wear hood-fitting hair. Being a totally non-vain cheerleader, of course I didn’t mind at all cutting off my precious locks, or wearing hair with no base and less volume than I’m used to. Not at all! I’m a professional!
Amber… Kiki… Amber… Kiki… OMG!!!
I had the sudden, horrifying realization that I don’t have any hair with bangs!!! How have I survived this long in SL under such unbearable conditions!
Kiki and I started chatting about this-and-that after practice. I popped over to Doux to look at David’s big book of hair styles. I kind of feel like LeLUTKA-Legacy-Doux have won so many designers hearts and sorta taken over the grid. Even though personally I’m still true to my Lara school. But I am a Doux girl!
I realized that David hardly ever cuts bangs! I popped over to Stealthic and was similarly disappointed.
Then I went to Truth and tried Mischief. Kiki and I were still chatting away in IM and I asked her where her sweet hair was from. She said she was wearing Tierney from Truth.
Hahaha, I’m at Truth now!

Kiki came by to hang out and try on Twisted. I gave her some of Maddy’s glühwein which kept us warm on this chilly December evening.
While we were talking my computer sound suddenly started doing this loud “broken record” thing. Before I could figure anything out the whole machine crashed and restarted itself. When I came back I mentioned that I’d been crashing lately with Windows 11/Firestorm. Kiki said she’d also been crashing lately with Windows 10/Linden Lab Viewer.
She likes the LL Viewer because you get updates the fastest and it’s lighter than Firestorm. I mentioned I’ve been using Genesis Viewer lately. Genesis misses a lot of nice Firestorm features, but is a lot lighter, and seems to have less lag, higher frame rates, avatars rez faster, and less hijinks at region crossings.
Kiki said she also doesn’t wear jewelry to keep lag down. That, and it’s not really her look. The no-jewelry no-makeup look suits her and her naturally beautiful skin just seems to glow.

I’ve worn many hats and tried on many identities as an avatar. I’ve been young and I’ve been old. Skinny and full-figured. Black and white. And red and green. A cheerleader and a derby girl. A barista and a host. I’ve seen so much love and beauty, so much desire, so much hunger for love and connection in the virtual world. I’ve seen that hunger and need expressed in unhelpful and destructive ways. Ways that can make living in this world as frustrating as living in the first life we came from. I’m touched by the tiny acts of kindness that surround us every day. If we can make it here, we can make it anywhere.
