Wimbledon Is A Washout

Better Listen to the Shark_012

And the big tennis event in London hasn’t even happened yet!! Oh dear!! 😦

Poor Alles is not a big fan of tennis and recalls that the last time that she played the green-ball game was a few hit-and-giggle affairs at college far too many years ago to remember. Needless to say, I don’t think I ever got the ball over the net!!

But in Second Life, Astralia and a number of other creators have got together to give us the best tennis experience evah in our virtual world. From the Astralian side there are rackets, tennis balls and other accessories while Dead Dollz has made a Smash Tennis Dress – which Alles conveniently forgot to wear! Ooops!! 😀

However Alles did manage to kit herself out in the following:

L’éclipse de la démocratie en Amérique

America Is In Distress

I’m not going to disguise my loathing of Donald Trump and if you thought that my Flickr post was about him and his cronies, then you are absolutely correct.

And so to paraphrase an article that has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald on Monday, January 16th.

On Friday (January 20th) ultimate power will be handed to a narcissistic buffoon who seems determined to be entirely unembarrassed about ignoring sensible political conventions, established diplomatic norms, or even the rule of law.

The uncertainty of the world in the Era of Big Orange is almost overwhelming in its scale: just how bad will be the looming catastrophe of the Trump presidency? Will it merely merely inflict four years of humiliation on the US, strip vulnerable people of basic health care, and flood the place with guns making it too dangerous to visit, or will he take the rest of the world down with his compatriots, of whom far more voted for the other candidate?

As for my fashion details, such as they are, Alles is wearing the following:
