Have I mentioned that, in real life, I hate clothes? I mean, I hate wearing clothes that I can feel pinching and pulling me, distracting me from the deep thoughts I must think for work. I tear off my street clothes the moment I get home in favour of something from my extensive lounging wardrobe. Have I mentioned that, like some laptops, I run hot? Most of the year, I lounge in short, lowcut, cotton slip dresses just to stay cool and comfy. I like a dress simple but with a twist, like an odd colour combination, which is what attracted me to SK Designs’ Agya Dress. If I have a writing deadline to meet, I try to inspire myself by starting the day in a glamorous shrug. By the time I’m a few paragraphs into it, the shrug is distracting me—marabou feathers stick to one’s lipgloss—and it gets tossed to the floor. Any imagination-stirring high heels meet a similar fate.
As a reformed Goth, I still favour black, even at home where there’s no one to spook. When I’m working chez moi, I pin up my hair higgledy-piggledy without checking it in the mirror. And because I’m always intent upon my reading or writing, I hate answering the front door. For some reason, the combo of a drape dress like Sn@tch’s Almost Off, higgledy-piggledy hair, and a grimace of pure annoyance gives people the impression that they got me out of bed. Which is good, because that makes them apologize and retreat quickly. Unless they believe in god and want me to believe too, no matter how late a sleeper, or how deep a sinner, I appear to be. Really, how many witnesses can Jehovah use?
I know I’ve mentioned that, in real life, I never wear jewellery (makes me sweaty in summer), and I would never advertise love or place birds’ nests about my person. In SL, however, Anorak does both. If she worked, she’d do just fine in noisy places, even with barbarians at the gate. And she can wear a shrug all day long without suffering, unless there’s a lot of lag, and then it comes off along with her shoes, her jewellery, and her hair. Have I mentioned that, in real life, I want to shave my head?
