I Haven't Got Time For the Pain -- Featuring Typhoon Haiyan Top, ::una::, AIDORU, Kyxe Skins & Shapes, MADesigns

In 1988, Medipren borrowed the Carly Simon song, "I haven't got time for the pain." Medipren was one of the first versions of the NSAID Advil aka Ibuprophen. I think it may be one of the all time best uses of a song written prior to the commercial (as opposed to being written for the commercial).

I'm a firm believer in the fact that when we're others focused, we tend to worry less about our own life. Even in the midst of mental or physical pain, a healthy outward focus, to encourage friends, aid others, offer time or financial support to those who need it, will make a personal difference.

Ibuprophen continues to be used for mild pain relief, but I use the connections I've made online as another form of pain relief. It really works. For a time, I suppress some of the fiercest edges of pain below the work and play I engage in, and smile instead of wincing or complaining.

Another thing that helps me deal with pain is perspective. I have seen the photos of the destruction left in the wake of the Typhoon that struck the Philippines last week and I can only begin to imagine the mental and physical pain felt. Taking a few moments to realize there are many who have it much worse than I gives me strength to deal with my own hiccups.

I hope you can get your own shirt, and help support relief efforts in the Philippines. There are both male and female shirts available for 100L. That's roughly 40 cents in US currency. Perspective and distraction are super non-medical options. And when you haven't got time for the pain... pay attention to someone else and you'll lose track of time and the pain! Live! Laugh! Love!

Intoxicated (Fashion for Life Day 2)

Perhaps there is as little chance of saying too much about this charity fund raiser as there is of being just a little bit pregnant. Fashion for Life is just huge, and one of my favorite things about Second Life in general.

A number of people I know have invested a huge amount of time to make this year the best year yet. EMO-tions not only contributed to raise money by designing  this hair (Dunja) and two others (plus a free gift just for visiting), they are the sim sponsor of Colossus of Rhodes.

Though it isn't a traditional crown, this particular style still makes me feel like a princess. All I need is a prince charming and I'll ride off into the sunset. EMO-tions does a great job of creating diverse looks. This is just one of them.

Chop Zuey also contributed to Fashion for Life (the set seen in this photo isn't from there, but coming soon!) and continues to support amazing charities, not to mention the free items shared with the public, even if you cannot afford to join the group. Charity comes in all packages.

There  is a note card floating around Second Life that lists all of the sponsors and participants at Fashion for Life. It's easy to put the SLURL into your program, and voila, land exactly where you want to be. Also, Angel Dessous sent out an alpha texture that's wearable that makes the wearer completely invisible, like Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, so you can weave through Fashion for Life with as few items worn that create lag. What a novel idea!

MM5 Rock!, DEW, Blow-up, Pure Poison, Olive at Winter Fair 2012

A year passes away and a new one begins. People off line make resolutions to change their world, their health,  and so many things they want 'better' for 2013. Have you made your list yet? One thing that should change slightly each year is your overall 'look' in Second Life. A face lift in SL certainly costs much less than one off line. Make your list, then attend events like the Winter Fair 2012 and choose new things that make you feel like a new and better you for 2013.

This beautiful holiday memory scene begins with the line from that famous story, "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care..." and these stockings, in a pack of three, came from Blow-up. 

I have on reindeer antlers from MM5 Rock!, so the prancing and pawing of each little hoof might be morse code, telling me a special reindeer secret.

A mesh knit reindeer sweater from DEW follows the theme. I'm trying to get in good with the whole Santa team this year.

Pure Poison provided Snowman earrings, and I copied one and added it as a belly ring as well since the sweater was cropped. You can do this with any of your jewelry that's copy able.

And a warm white scarf from Yulicie finishes off the winter wonderful touch. I had a flash of dawning understanding last night when I was looking at Yulicie, the name. I always try to figure out those cool license tags and Yulicie seemed similar. I see the words, "You'll See." now when I look at this clothing designer. Clever!
