Book Belles Do Dead Poets Wednesday at 6 am PST

Last week, Trolls and I began our performance of Florence King's hilarious book, O Wasp, Where Is the Sting?  We thoroughly covered the topic of High-Wasp Motherhood.  This week, we'll go into low-wasp maternity and we'll share an essay she wrote about one of the aforementioned dead poets, Sylvia Plath.  King's clear vision and snappy funny bone are evident in all her works.  She is an absolute screech and she knows of what she writes.  We promise you will recognize her characters because they are people we all know.  We'll bring King's words and wit to life for you Wednesday at Seanchai Library in SL.  The fun will start April 29 at 6 am Pacific Time.  Tell your friends, your enemies AND your dog!  We want you all to join us!

Meet Amanda Zurivost

My Kitty
by Amanda Zurivost My Kitty comes, back arched, claws splayed,
yowling her song on the night wind.
Claimed in the dark, bathed in red,
more tabby than lynx, she grows in felinity. She is my voice and my heart,
truest friend of my timeless lifetime.
Kitty purrs in my lap,
revels, tasting cream.  
I have known Amanda Zurivost for several years now.  She was one of the first friends I made in Second Life.  I've always known she writes poems and have, in fact, begged her on more than occasion to do a reading at Freda's Place.  Amanda is a private sort, so she has steadfastly refused.  Today, she invited me to visit her in her home in Philomenaville.  I am very gratified to see her settling along with her longtime partner, Puss Applewhyte, into one of my favorite historical communities on any grid.  Today, Amanda allowed me to read and share a few of her poems.  My Kitty has long been a favorite of mine, as it displays Amanda's wit and cleverness.  What a talented poe…

Book Belles of SL Together at Seanchai Library Trolls and I are so excited!  The next four Wednesdays we'll be performing the works of Florence King, bisexual southern belle. King's clear vision and a snappy funny bone are evident in all her works.  She is an absolute screech and she knows of what she writes.  In the case of her "Confessions," the adage it's funny because it's true applies.  We'll bring King's words and wit to life for you Wednesdays at Seanchai Library in SL.  The fun will start April 15 at 6 am Pacific Time.  Tell your friends, your enemies AND your dog!  We want you all to join us!

Tuesday was my Rez Date.  I turned six in Second Life.  It was also the anniversary of the date Heximer Thane and I partnered in SL and the day we celebrate our first life anniversary.  April 7 being so laden with reasons to celebrate, we decided to throw a party on our new/old parcel in UUtopia, Alcott.  The theme was Tiki; the music was provided by yours truly; the guests were marvelous!   It was a blast!  Rest assured there will be real life anniversary celebrations come the weekend!  Here are a few photos from the SL fun!
