———————————————————————————————————- Today is my birthday, in that world we call “real”. I’m now 37 years old. ———————————————————————————————————- However, I would prefer if you don’t say “happy birthday.” Not yet. I’ve come to hate my birthday over the years. Intensely.

I am Sei Minuet, and I have a horrible sense of time, a beard in first life, and a female avatar on Second Life.

It’s sad how you go from intimacy to nothing, cold turkey. I mean, how many people along the way have true meaning in your life?  And to suddenly have no contact, after … it’s sad. ~ Boston Legal – Season 4 Episode 2 It’s funny how a line in a fictional TV show can echo your … Continue reading
