Hello my dearest friends. I have missed you.
It feels like the whole "I have cancer" thing was just a bad dream. It *is* the worst nightmare possible, but for now I am doing just fine. I am not required to have chemotherapy and my prognosis for a long life is good.
Having said that if one more person tells me this is a "good cancer" I cannot promise I won't be violent. There is no good cancer and when a doctor looks at you with that serious face they learn in medical school and says "It is Lymphoma" there is nothing good.
Anyway, I have a separate blog if you want to read more about what it is like to live with cancer that acts like a chronic disease. You can read it here and I sincerely hope you will. My posting is sporadic but funny! I laugh in the face of cancer because really what the hell else are you going to do?
Lately I have surprised myself by logging in to Second Life a few days in a row. At first it was weird. I stood there and wondered "what the hell do I do now?" It was like being a noob in a 5 year old body. Quite odd, actually.
The first thing I did was find some new mesh clothes, which was interesting. The idea of having to fit my body to the clothes was a tad too RL for me. One of my favorite things about SL has always been clothes fit. You put them on and -- boom! They fit. Still, I do appreciate how mesh clothing works with my avatar so I made some tweaks and I am firmly in a mesh size medium. I had to make my boobs bigger and my back end smaller. What a surprise! The fashion community decided big boobs and a small ass are optimal. Who woulda thunk it? *insert eye roll here*
After outfitting myself in snazzy new duds I decided to have a look at the hunts running now because I have always found hunts to be a good way to find new and interesting places. Much to my surprise I found an Art Gallery Hunt! This is right up my alley! I went to the starting point, snapped the picture at the top of this post and immediately opened the dusty Second Life of My Dreams dashboard and wrote this post.
I have missed you all.
