Hanging Out

I think this might be my goodnight post, even though it's only 8:30, because I am beat. No nap today! Plus, my darling partner let me talk his ear off earlier [type his eyes off?] and I'm feeling a bit non-typey now.

If you haven't been by Sai's store, Imperial Elegance, why the heck not? [SLurl] We all knew she was working on a free AO for women, a casual one that doesn't have you with your arms ridiculously over your head or your hip jutting out to the side like you're asking "Hey sailor, how much for this?" It was exciting to see how many people RAN out there the moment it was announced she had it up. Of course, that also meant I couldn't go get it until this morning because, I swear, she had 55 people in that store yesterday after it got announced. At one point, IE was as packed as Truth, and Truth is having that big sale. Sai also is discontinuing a lot of the things she's made, like the totally cute teeny skirts and some jewelry and other things, so everything on one wall is $1L. I bought almost everything on the wall. LOL So go on out there and pick up stuff, and play with her poses because they rock. And I'm not just saying that because she's my friend either.

Levi and I hung out with our friend Jet earlier today. Jet is definitely one of the most talented women in SL that I know. She's been working on making hair lately. I have shown one of her geisha hairs in the blog before, along with a kimono she had made. That's the thing with Jet - she's good at so many things! It's almost a bit sickening. :) Ok, yes, I'm jealous of her talent. :) She showed us some rooms that she's made, including an awesome train skybox. The windows inside have a scrolling texture that makes you think you're actually riding in a train. It's so amazing! You can see some of the pictures Levi took of us in various rooms she's made on his Snapzilla page. I was so busy gawking at her work, I forgot to take pics!

If you don't keep up with such things - looks like the Greenies are going the way of the Black Swan, according to this blog post. I realize that the Rezzable sims need to make some money, but at the same time, it sucks because there are people in SL who don't have a lot of money to pay for membership rings or Greenie avatars. Face it, who's gonna pay $500L for an av that they probably aren't going to get much use out of? I have a Greenies av that I got during that hunt, but I sure as heck wouldn't have bought it just to go into the sim. But...that's just me. I probably wouldn't mind paying the $99L for the membership ring, but then I'd feel like I had to keep going back, at least 2-3 times, to get use out of the membership. It's like when you buy a season pass to an amusement park. You may not even LIKE the park all that much, but you force yourself to go at least twice to pay for the pass. [And yes, sometimes you do buy the season passes because your family or friends want you to, not because you actually enjoy the place. It's usually cheaper anyway.] I truly hope that all of the Rezzable sims don't do this pay thing. The sims are some of the most wonderful in SL, it would be a shame for them to stand empty because people can't afford to go there, or won't pay because they don't like the idea of paying.

I'm about to fall asleep here at the desk. Have a nice night everyone.

Last Night's Disco

Great disco party last night! I had a really fun time, and I think everyone else did too. Minor annoyance towards the end, but I think that was more me being tired than anything else. LOL Here are some pictures, the first 3 courtesy of Jerremy Darwin, who was rockin' out with fish in his shoes! If you want to see even more pics, check out Levi's Snapzilla and Calista's blog.

The worst part of the party is that Cen wasn't able to make it. :( I don't know why. I'm guessing 'net problems.

On with the pics!

Disco - Elora, I think

Disco - Levi and me

Disco - Shiny Men

Disco - Darwins

Disco - Cupcakes

Rain rain go away

I've come to a conclusion.

Mother Nature hates disco.

It was sunny for most of the afternoon here today and then just as I paid to rent the stream for tonight's Hump Day Disco, whooooosh!!! Downpour! Luckily it looks like the big storms have passed, so no worries.

Like I said before, we're in the party ball tonight. I'll give the SLurl here and pass out LMs in world if people need them. I probably won't put down the LM giver tonight just because there's so much mess going on down on the ground, it would be better if people didn't go down there until we're done. :)

Party Ball - [SLurl]

See you at 8pm tonight!!

/me shivers as she hears thunder again.

Randomosity - Part 11 - More piccies!

I just realized I haven't shown any pictures lately!! And since I'm stalling on going back to texture my store, I thought I'd show some random pics that are on my desktop. :)

I gave Calista some LOLCat pics. She missed her frame and stuck it on the ceiling. I think the pic is pretty fitting to that smooth move. LOL

Calista has the dumb.



We went to onigokko around a dildo tree and things got out of hand. The Stay-Puft man lost his top and was all legs. I almost fell off the chair laughing. The owner of the gallery where we were hanging out came by, told us to turn off our onigokko music [we were the only ones there, btw], and then hit us up for donations.

Fat legs

Levi went into work late today, but I forced him to snuggle me before he left. I'm sure it was torture for him. ;)

Afternoon snuggles

Ok...guess I'll log in and see what I can do about my store. I HATE TEXTURING. But it has to be done. I can't leave it all crazy and plywood floors and stuff. Plus I need to go rent my stream for tonight. DISCO BABY!

Burn Baby Burn!

Don't forget, it's DISCO NIGHT at the pit tonight!! 8pm SLT is the time and prepare to dance your pants off! Um...well...keep your pants on. LOL But it should be a great time!

We'll be up in the party ball tonight. If you didn't read Cen's post about what's going on at the pit, you'll know that being in there tonight is not just because it's awesome and the disco ball is in there - it's for safety too! We don't have enough hard hats to pass around. LOL

And just so no one frets about it, please feel free to wear your disco outfit from the last time. I didn't get to see everyone [*shakes her fist at mother nature*] so I'd love to see the outfits. :)

This is my mad face. >:-|

Not much work done for Tuesday. I can get very into building but the moment I'm out of it, I'm out for days.

Right now I'm in a terrible mood. Started when I woke up from my nap, and it was getting better as I got to spend some time with Levi. But the other human in my house decided he needed "5 minutes" to switch out the routers. 5 minutes turned into almost 30 and by the time I was able to log back in, Levi had gone to bed. Sorry, baby. If I'd known it was going to take so long, I wouldn't have logged out in the first place.

I picked out the new building for my store tonight. It's big and airy. Cen & Rick spent hours tonight tearing the pit up. I'm actually in the middle now of trying to move my items over to the new store so I can reset the classifed, but SL is not cooperating.

I have my Crankypants on tonight. Big time.

Randomosity - Part 10 - Stalling

Nothing makes me happier than an out of the blue call from my baby. :) Even if we do talk about charming things like embalming fluid out of the nose and firing squads. LOL [C'mon, you knew I'd mention it. ;)]

I miss Valryn of Soulfire. :( I'm wearing her Blues Girl outfit today and I miss all the great clothes she used to come up with. Not to mention I miss her comments here in the blog.

The Pit is getting a makeover very soon. Less urban grungy, more...not urban grungy. LOL If you live or rent with us, you'll get all the information. My store is even moving to the other side, near the fishing. Rick did up a layout for us to see and I think it's going to look really good when it's done.

Did we ever mention that Sam graduated from basic training earlier this month?

Ok...I've been stalling all day on building. LOL Back to the belt.

Good morning everyone!

Levi asked me this morning what was new in SL, and then mentioned I hadn't posted a new blog in HOURS. I told him that I'm simply boring when I get to working on something. LOL More boring than usual!! I get involved in moving prims around and writing takes a backseat. So what am I working on?

A pancakes belt!

But this belt isn't what some people think it is, so I'm going to have to make 2 belts. The one I'm working on right now is more of a ... pancake making belt. Complete with griddle. Once I finish the spatula, I think it'll be done. I'm VERY pleased with the actual belt part of it. It may be my best and cleanest looking one to date. I so wish I were a better builder, though. Like one of those who uses math and sketches out plans. My builds are happy accidents. LOL But after this one is completed, I'm going to build a different pancakes belt.

And yes, for those of you who didn't see it, I did make it into New World Notes again. LOL It's funny when people IM me "Did you see?!" One day I hope to make it in there for doing something amazing. Not that I haven't loved each time that I've been in there!! But there is a difference between me being in there because I wrote about sex and someone like Eshi Otawara being in there because she builds amazing sims at the drop of a hat. LOL

It's almost 8am and still semi-cool here so I think I'll go take a walk and then settle in to complete my belt. I'd like to have it done and ready for the store by tonight. I haven't had an update in weeks with all the RL junk going on.

I do NOT love Poser. -.-

So Levi logged in this morning and I excitedly told him to hop on a poseball to test my new poses.


Oh man, they bit the big one. lmfao! Nothing came out lined up the way I wanted. Poser and I are going to have a big hell of a fight later on today.

I might need a nap first, though. That kind of fight has to be rested up for. It might also require more strawberry soda and chicken salad as well.

Poor Levi...I wonder if he really realizes how much poseball hopping is in the future while I get this one pose right. LOL Baby, in advance, I'm sorry. But you know how competitive I am and I will not let this program beat me!!

Can I also just say how excited I am for the disco event this Wednesday? LOL If anything happens to where I can't do it this Wednesday, I will seriously go jump in front of a moving car. LOL Also, Tymmerie had the theme suggestion of something doctors and nurses and patients? :) Someone think of a cute title for that, kthx. ;) It will give me a chance to pull out my sexy nurse costume again!

Ok...going to the store, because strawberry soda and more celery for chicken salad is needed.

Early morning babble

Up early and back to the posing grindstone. :) Actually, I am just cleaning up last night's poses in QAvimator. For some reason, the priority didn't take very well from just the poses straight from Poser, but seemed to after a clean up. Well, on the female pose. The male pose seems to be a little fidgety. Now if Levi will wake up and get his cute butt into SL so we can test these out together, I can go back to work. :) Of course, it is only just after 6am for him... LOL I just feel like I haven't seen him NEAR enough lately, or even talked to him enough. We were in world together very early Saturday morning and talked on the phone that afternoon, but he wasn't home and I didn't want to bug him constantly while he was out trying to have fun. LOL I'd have seen him if I hadn't gone to bed so early last night. Stupid sleeping. It takes up precious time out of my day!

So while I'm standing around doing nothing except looking at myself, I thought I'd check out Hester's profile just to see if she's conned some guy into partnering her yet. She hasn't, but she has been with the same guy for a few weeks now. The funniest part is that out of the 3 times she's written his name in her profile, she's misspelled it twice. LOL

I have an idea for a new belt. I should sit down and do a rough build of it, but I seem to be a bit distracted this morning. I keep looking at this and that, coming back here to type a little more, looking at something else in world, typing a little more, etc. Someone needs to get online and hold me down. :-D Plus I got all bitchy at a belt I was working on the other day because the belt buckle wasn't working the way I wanted. It's going to require a quiet room, shutting down group chat, ignoring IMs, and getting totally zoned to get it done, I think. I might do that this afternoon.

Out of things to talk about for now, so I'll stop writing. :)

Sunday, July 27, 2008


I sat down this afternoon, opened Poser, and put on my boxing gloves. And it was a fight. Oh yes, it was a FIGHT. But armed with 2 tutorials and a glass of strawberry soda, I emerged...well, if not victorious, than at least not totally beaten.

I managed to put together a couples pose that looks great in Poser. Not perfect, but very close to what I've been imagining in my head. I even managed to get the poses to upload into SL. But there's a big problem now.

No one to test them with. LOL

Yeah, I could ask one of the group to come test with me since most of the girls have male alts, or I could make a male account and try to recreate Levi's approximate shape and try to run 2 viewers at once and hope not to die a painful crashy death. But laying down with a girl looking like a guy is weird [Cen and I did that one day when she was doing her experiment and omg, never had felt more weird around her] and I'm getting really sleepy and I'm too lazy to make a male account. LOL Plus, the poses I make for us I want to fit our shapes, so it's better if I wait for him. :)

Wow, that was a load of rambling. LOL

Anyway, I did it. I finally used Poser. Just static poses, but baby steps. I was excited that I was able to even do that much considering the last time I tried Poser, I was slapped like a red headed stepchild and then I pouted for 3 days and considered uninstalling the whole program. Yes, I am that much of a brat.

It's almost 9pm and I'm feeling really sleepy. I might call it an early night.

Needz moar quizzes!

It's not a big secret that my group of friends love food. LOL Come to any of the hump day parties, inevitably the conversation turns to food. [HOW long did we discuss southern food at the country party?!] Cupcakes, pancakes, ice cream, sandwiches...oh, food talk is almost always going on.

Since today is a slow day in SL for me, I thought I'd look up some food quizzes. :)

You Are a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

You life your life in a free form, artistic style.

You are incredibly creative and at times, quite messy.

Deep down, you are a kid at heart. And you aren't afraid to express it.

Your best friend: The Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Your mortal enemy: The Club Sandwich

Your Ice Cream Personality:

You like to think of yourself as a fairly modest person. And it's true that you don't talk yourself up... but you're also pretty happy with who you are.

You have a wild reputation, but you're not as wild as you seem. You take risks, but only measured risks.

You are a very open minded, liberal, and flexible person. You love many things. You tend to have tastes that range from down home to cosmopolitan.

You are a natural multitasker. You feel alive when you're doing more than one thing at a time.

You are fun loving and sweet. You tend to enjoy joking around and teasing people.

What Your Pizza Reveals

People may tell you that you have a small appetite... but you aren't under eating. You just aren't a pig.

You consider pizza to be bread... very good bread. You fit in best in the Midwest part of the US.

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are generous, outgoing, and considerate with your choices.

You are cultured and intellectual. You should consider traveling to Vienna.

The stereotype that best fits you is geek. You're the type most likely to order pizza to avoid leaving your computer.

You Are Lemon Meringue Pie

You're the perfect combo of sassy and sweet.

You always know how to brighten someone's mood, but you're not overly sappy.

In fact, you can be a bit too honest at times. And most people find that refreshing.

While you're always true to yourself, you keep things light. That's how people are able to stomach your slightly bitter outlook.

Those who like you have well refined tastes.

You're complicated - and let's face it - a true enigma.

You enjoy defying expectations, and there are many layers to your personality.

There's not one easy way to define you.

But not a chicken cupcake.

You Are Not Destined to Rule the World

You are destined for something else...

Like inventing a new type of cupcake.

You just don't have the stomach for brutality.

But watch out - because many people do!

Thorne-Darwin Wedding Pics

Ok, finished resizing pics. Out of the 80 or so that I took, only a few I liked. Part of this is because I'm picky, but part of this is because Tymmerie's hair never fully rezzed for me. LOL

If you want to see some much better pictures, check out GoSpeed's Flickr set of the event. :)

And yes, there are a lot of pics here. Get over it, it's my blog. :-D

Remember how I said that I haven't been getting more than maybe 4 hours of sleep in a row for a long time? Yeah, my "nap" that I decided to take after the wedding today lasted from 4pm until 1am. LOL Oops.

Tymmerie's and Jerremy's wedding was BEAUTIFUL!! I have a bunch of pics but they need resizing before I post. But you can find pictures on other blogs right now, too. :) I swear, I was teary eyed when it started, but when they said their vows, I was hunting for kleenex. I'm such a sap. :) The reception was loads of fun, too! Great music, great people, and great food. I totally tucked food away in my purse to bring home with me. We don't have a kitchen, you know. LOL Big congrats again to Tymmerie & Jerremy!!!

I guess I'll go in world and read all the notices before the messages cap. That happens all too often these days.

Today's the day!

Custom Glitter Text

LOL, oops.

I was in the middle of writing this when Levi logged in, and I forgot about it. So excuse the very abrupt ending.

My tiny nap earlier lasted 4 hours. LOL Oops.

Cen and I got to hang out together tonight for the first time in ages. We hit up a dollarbie hunt at Haven Designs/Sanctum Hair [SLurl]. It's one of those hover hunts, and it's not huge, but we got some cool hair and a couple of skimpy outfits. Then we stood around wondering what to wear to the wedding tomorrow and we changed clothes in the store about 50,000 times. LOL

Our friend Hyde has a bar called the Roadrunner, and he has bullriding out there. He'd asked Cen if she'd go out there at 10 to pay the top 2 scorers on the bullriding. A bunch of us ended up going out there to ride the bull.

Guess who ended up winning by staying on that bull for a little over 60 seconds? That's right. My thighs are STRONG. :-D

Anti-Social Fisher

After a brief moment of being caught in a mob scene at Simply Britnee [free hair. None of it was my taste or style, however.], I decided fishing would calm me down. However, I didn't feel like leaving the skybox. I knew I could just go to the pit and fish and not be bothered but I really didn't feel like running into anyone.


I'm pretty sure that's anti-social behavior when you just drop a server and build a bowl for fishing for 10 minutes before getting bored and picking it all back up. lol

Does anyone know how to rid a car of dog smell? We traveled with my mom's dog this week and I can just smell dog now in the car. I ran some baby wipes all over the upholstery to pick up all the fur and I vacuumed and used some air freshener, but I just smell dog. It's probably only noticeable to me. But it's still going to bother me.

I think I need a nap. Just a tiny one.

Randomosity - Part 9 - YouTube Videos

I'm stalling on going to wash my car. Of course, if I don't go soon, it's gonna be WAY too hot. But since I am stalling, I thought I'd bring to you some videos that I have on my favorites list over on YouTube. :)

Nickelback - Far Away

Chester See - That's What I'll Be

Unk vs Avril Lavigne vs Toni Basil - Walkin' Out Yo Girlfriend

Simon's Cat - TV Dinner

Fun With Shorts: Shy Guy

Ok, enough of that...I'm going to go get dressed and go play in the water and get the nasty buggies off my car.

Closing Time.

So Linden Lifestyles is no longer going to be updated after August 5th. That is so sad. For many SL residents, Lifestyles is the first fashion blog that they read. Many many new residents first outfit themselves in the Linden Lifestyles Jack & Jill In A Box. You would think rather than shut its doors, they would bring on a couple of new writers, but I guess it would be hard to find people to match the writing style of the blog. I know I couldn't do it. I'm far too wordy. I wonder if the Linden Lifestyles headquarters will close. That's the place where we all went crazy weighing ourselves. I think that's the place where I was in my first group onigokko, actually. lol

So long, Linden Lifestyles. Thanks for everything you've given to the SL community. :)

falling asleep

I'm feeling really... Oh, I don't know. I probably just need food and sleep. I just feel like I'm waiting on something to happen, something not good. And I know it's probably just me. Although generally I'm an optimist, if something doesn't feel quite right to me, I immediately go to the worst case scenario and assume that I'm to blame for everything that ever happened to anyone anywhere.

Nice party tonight at the pit. Thank you to everyone who came out on pretty much short notice. :) I won't apologize again for being so quiet. [Even though I'm sorry!]

Tomorrow I'm going to open up Poser and start working on some couch poses. Levi and I have Pillow Talk pillows, and a pose from Imperial Elegance and a full perm pose I found somewhere in my travels. But pretty much every pose we have has me on top of him or sitting on his lap, and while that's great, what I want is something a little more natural and casual and cuddly. And, let's face it, I need something tedious to occupy my brain. lol

I'm going to bed now. But just because I don't want this to be a totally serious blog post....

You Are a Pistachio

You are funky, freaky, and a total character.

You're very different than anyone you know.

There's no way you're changing the way you are...

Which is good, because no one wants you to change.

Costume Party @ 7pm SLT

Party tonight! BUT...starts at 7pm SLT tonight. :) Just this once [unless that time works better for everyone on Wednesdays?] because like I just told the group, I can't guarantee I won't run out of steam before midnight. LOL

The theme is... Costume Party! Wear any kind of costume you want to wear, like maybe something you've bought for one of our previous events and haven't had a chance to wear again.

We'll be in the party ball tonight [since I love it and it's lower on lag than it is when we're on the ground] so dress up and come play!

And yes, I AM planning, as soon as my schedule relaxes a bit, to throw a more Euro-time friendly party. :) Will probably be a weekend since I know a lot of people want to be able to attend and hang out too.

Lucky to get Midnight Blue!

Everyone knows that Crimson Shadow probably has some of the BEST lucky chair gifts in SL. Well, if you're a woman, of course. ;) Starting today there's a new gift in the chair and oh WOW, is it totally gorgeous! Lokum Shilova was kind enough to send me the dress in advance so I don't have to wait for it. Hey wait...are they telling me to stop coming to Crimson Shadow? Have I turned into Laleeta?! LOL! [Kidding! We miss you, Laleeta!!]

The Midnight Blue dress was created exclusively for Crimson Shadow by Moxie Polano and is a lush silk and lace dress with two options. A tighter silk skirt that would look perfect in any jazz or formal club, and a full formal skirt which would be lovely in the ballroom or for any of you medieval-ish roleplayers out there. Let's take a look at the tight skirt first.

Midnight Blue - Tight skirt

The texturing is SO wonderful for this dress. I wanted to rub my face all over the skirt to feel the silk. The chest ruffle is made of lace and sculpted roses. I didn't have to adjust it at all, so it may be a little small on those with wider shoulders or a bigger higher bustline.

See those lovely shoes on my feet? They come with the outfit! The stiletto is VERY pointy, so be careful when you walk. You may poke holes in the floor.

Midnight Blue - Shoes

[Looking back, maybe doing these pics on a blue background wasn't the best decision. :) But it looked good to me!]

The full skirt is absolutely lovely. I could definitely see myself dancing in Avilion or some other ballroom in it. Hey baby? Can we go dancing??

The texturing for the skirt is, again, fantastic! I actually feel like there are different layers to the skirt.

Midnight Blue - Formal

Midnight Blue - skirt

I am definitely in love with the pretty chest ruffle. Although you could wear the dress without it...why would you? It's gorgeous! The sculpted roses are quite well done and the lace is detailed.

Midnight Blue - Chest roses

The Midnight Blue dress comes with the shirt, pants, sculpted shoes, chest ruffle, gloves, tight skirt, full skirt, and hair veil [not shown because I couldn't figure out which hair to wear with it, but it's really cute]. The dress retails for $700L but can be yours if you're willing to put some time into waiting at Crimson Shadow for the lucky chair. Why wouldn't you?! Go go go!! You only have until August 10th!

Crimson Shadow - SLurl

I'm also wearing 'Scarlet' skin in the Desidelia tone by Free Speerit, 'Tyra' hair in Platinum by ETD, and 'Open Ocean' eyes by Miriel. Photos taken on location at Eloquence, thanks to Moggs Oceanlane, and Vignette, one of the prettiest sims I know.

I also couldn't stop myself from taking a picture in the photobooth at Eloquence.

Midnight Blue - I couldn't help it.

Party tonight? And some other things.

So...who wants to party with me at the pit tonight? :) Maybe just a costume party, you pick your own costume, and we'll bounce around inside the party ball. Or you choose to dress in one of our previous themes, since I know a lot of you have spent quite a bit on dressing for these events and it would give you a chance to re-wear something that you might have only gotten one use out of. Just let me know if anyone's interested. :)

I woke up at 6 this morning. I'm not sure why. I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever sleep for 8 hours in a row [without medication] again. lol

I've been thinking a lot about clothing design lately. Oh, not that I think I have any talent in that field, but I think I could certainly design a line of very short skirts. The main thing is that I'd want to hand place every prim, not use any kind of loop script, so that there was a better shape to the skirt. And having done that once before, it is tedious and I don't do so well at using math to place prims. I just kind of stick things in places. LOL Plus I'd want to make my own textures for it so I'd have to relearn how to make seamless textures. Cen had also given me an idea for skirts [which I'm not saying because then someone will take the idea. :-p Well, not that it's a NEW idea and I'm sure has been done before.] and so there's that to think about. I haven't really built much in the past month, and most certainly haven't built anything practical in a while. I keep meaning to re-do the tequila belt as well. I feel like I messed up the design of it with the body shot wipes, but I don't know what to stick in the place there. Not that I HAVE to have every inch of the sucker filled up. But... ugh, I don't know. LOL But I am going to re-do it at some point soon. If you've bought it before, you'll get the free replacement, of course.

I miss my Levi. :( I haven't seen him in so long and we've barely had a chance to talk lately. He called me yesterday but I guess we lost the connection. I was talking and he was quiet and then the phone disconnected. Gotta love cell phones, huh? But I want him in world with me so we can cuddle and talk because if anyone asks where my favorite place in SL is, I could honestly say his lap is my favorite. :)

That reminds me...I wanted to try Poser again to make a new couch cuddle. Something that has us more side by side but still wrapped up in each other. Maybe I'll google search some images and see what I can do. Poser gives me such a headache, but I do want to learn it. I have looked at tutorials online, but maybe I should look at YouTube for one. I seem to learn better that way.

My car so badly needs washing. And an oil change. LOL But I'd be embarrassed to take it in for an oil change with it being all buggy covered and dusty. I usually just run it through one of those gas station washes, but I could use the sunshine today, so I might just do it myself. If I could change my own oil, how cool would I be? LOL

Oh, and as far as some stuff that happened on Calista's chatbox... Eh, what am I gonna say? lol

"Never explain--your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway."

I think I'll go wash the car now.

Oh but group gift from Evie's Closet! THAT is where I'm going first!

Annnnd I have a photoshoot to do with myself when I get back, because I just got a new lucky chair item and if it looks as good on me as it does in the picture...oh you ladies will be STALKING that chair!

I'm home

I'm back. The trip was... oh, I don't want to talk about it. I really don't. I'm feeling really edgy and a bit off my game at the moment and no one needs to hear about that.

Anyway, I am going to say right at the moment that our usual hump day party at the pit is cancelled tonight, but may be bumped to tomorrow night after I've had some sleep. I can't remember the last time I slept. LOL I'm sure it was yesterday sometime.

I also have some things to think about [well, some things have been thought about already] so there may be a few blog changes coming up soon, but nothing too big, I promise. :)

I've missed you guys so much. Big big big thanks to those of you who offlined me sending me good vibes. I could check email on my cell phone so it was nice to know that I am not as alone as I felt that I was.

The frantic whims of my mother win again. She wants to go out of town RIGHT NOW. 1am. Don't bother packing, we'll buy clothes on the way.

Anyway, I don't know when I'll be back or when I'll have internet access again. I'm shooting for Wednesday, but you never know.


Oh my god, I am so sleepy. It's not even 10pm yet and I'm DYING.

I hit a few places on that hunt for the guys that Colorful Sinister coordinated. I only found one hammer at the 4 places I hit. She had told me to wait on the hunt anyway since not all the designers were ready with their hammers yet, but did I believe her? Well, yeah, I did, but I'm impatient. LOL But I did run into a blog reader of mine. Hi Lexis! I know I shouldn't be on the hunt since it IS for the men. But...I want to see what they get! LOL

lol, i suck. i just nodded off here at the desk. since i do have so much to do tomorrow, i think maybe i'll just go to bed now. Knowing me, I'll be awake in 3 hours anyway.

Sunday Morning

I went out to Curio last night to check out the build and demo the skins. I think that the skins Gala Phoenix have created are soooo pretty. The detail on the body is really wonderful. But there was one problem.

Curio - Demoing skin

Wearing the skin, I felt like I was wearing Sai. She's been wearing Gala skins for pretty much as long as I've known her, and it's just weird for me to put one on. I don't know why, since I can wear a Tuli skin and not feel like I'm wearing Cen. Maybe it's because Sai and I have similar shapes? I don't know.

But you have to admit, the skin is gorgeous. :)

Speaking of skins, this morning I logged in and Levi had bought a new skin while I was sleeping. It's so funny how I put new skins on all the time and don't think much about it, but the moment he does, it's like I can't get used to how he looks. Of course, I'm not a morning person and so I'm usually a little disoriented in the mornings anyway. The body of his new skin is pretty good. I love the chest area. I couldn't decide if I liked the face or not. But he was kind enough to put his old skin back on and then we twirled around the room for a while.

Good morning twirl

I feel really bad right now because I'm NOT much of a morning person, and Levi and I are almost always together after I've been awake for a while, so he's not used to me being quiet. No, seriously, I'm almost constantly typing when we're together. LOL But I was just groggy, I guess. And starving. But after a ham & cheese omelet, toast, and a big glass of diet Coke, I'm feeling way better.

I'm also in a total Beach Boys mood today. What the heck?

A new hunt is hitting the grid....

You know how we've often said that men get screwed over big time on these treasure hunts that hit the grid all the time? Not so anymore! There's a gridwide hunt just for the MEN starting tomorrow!!!!

I got an advance copy of the designer list tonight for the hunt and it should be a REALLY great one for the guys. :)

I know some of you men have never done a hunt before, so here's what you do:

1. Go here - SLurl

2. Pick up the first LM [Not sure if you get the full list at this time, or if you get just a LM to the first location and from there you get the next LM with your gift.]

3. TP to a gift location, find the hammer, and you've gotten a gift! YAY! \0/

The gifts should be out around 12am SLT, but you might want to wait until the morning [or evening, for those of you on the opposite side of the world] before getting started. :)


This morning, Penn sent the Ch'Know group a gift of fire twirly sticks courtesy of his friend Kabaka Kwaszes, who seems to have taken a shine to the girls of the group. [Not that I blame him. We are highly gorgeous and awesome women.] A few of us met Kabaka one morning as we tested out his fireworks thing, which was loads of fun.

Levi and I were hanging out when the present came through, so immediately we had to get up and dance with our new toys. Well, we had to put on clothes...but that's just good sense when playing with fire. Not that we put much on. LOL

Fire dancing!!

Fire Dancing

And then, because it never gets old and it makes me laugh so freakin' much...

Fire Onigokko!!!

Fire Onigokko!!!

We must have done onigokko for about 30 minutes while we chatted with the group and took pics. You can go over to Levi's Snapzilla to see a couple more pics he took this morning. I always suggest you go over there anyway, because he sometimes catches pics of me that I wouldn't have. :)

I told Calista that almost all of my pictures lately are of onigokko. LOL But pictures don't usually do it justice, so go over to Sai's blog to check out her onigokko videos.

I'm starving. I logged in and Levi is playing piano, but he's so good, he can do it while he's Away. LOL So I'm not going to go eat until he comes back so I can say hi. :)

My piano man

Hair colors & MIA

Do you all wear the same hair color in SL as you have in RL? I keep noticing RL blondes with raven black hair in SL. LOL

My answer is no. I'm a RL brunette and even started SL as one, but blonde seems to suit me better for some reason. Although when I do put on darker hair, I always like the way I look.

I just realized on my dashboard that I have 564 posts, but yet I've only posted 532. 533 with this one. Somewhere ... I have some posts that never made it to the light of day. LOL

So where are Sidonie Larkham, Andria Meredith, and Kharisma Llewellyn??? I'm most worried about Sidonie, as I think she may have cancelled her SL account. I went into a group that we're both in to look and see when the last time she logged in was, but even though it shows the group in her profile, it doesn't show her in the group. If I look her up in Search, she's not there either. :(

Levi just logged in, so I'm closing this for now.

Carnival of Doom Luckily Goes Pink!!

My group of friends LOVE lucky chairs. We do! Almost all night there's someone calling out letters for great chairs. Because that's the thing, we love GREAT lucky chairs.

So when Cecile Milena dropped the latest gift from the lucky chair at the Carnival of Doom on me, I almost screamed in delight. Not just because everything that is made for any of the Rezzable sims is almost always top notch, but because my letter NEVER comes up! And I'd be waiting forever for this amazing outfit! Plus, I didn't even know that the Carnival of Doom had a lucky chair, so that was good to know! I know a few of my friends who will be out there stalking that chair. I mean, did we ever get Laleeta away from the lucky chair at Crimson Shadow? ;)

The Zemfira Candy Suit, created by hyasynth Tiramisu is normally sold at Carnival of Doom for L$500. This price does seem steep, BUT...oh gosh, there are SO many pieces and SO many ways to mix & match!! I mean, I was discovering new pieces to the outfit as I was putting together looks. I came up with 3 looks for this post, but quite honestly, there's probably more than half a dozen ways you could put pieces together to create your own special look. The colors are absolutely rich, and since it's a candy suit, it's all kinds of girly goodness. I know, I know, let's get on with the pictures! [Which I took a bunch of. Sorry. LOL]

Must be this tall

My hair makes me taller.

Cotton Candy

Hell's Waiting Room

Gloves & Bracelet

Leaving hell

There are different layers for the shirt, waist cincher, and vest, along with the capris & cuffs, pants for the skirts, 2 different skirts, sleeves for the shirt [which I am not wearing because I didn't see them until it was too late], earrings, bracelets, and fingerless gloves. It's really the most amazing package!

The Zemfira Candy Suit will be available until August 1st in the Lucky Chair at the Carnival of Doom. The following SLurl will get you to the gates, but just go straight ahead, turn left, and go past the enormous red bear(?) thing and into the barn. I think it's marked Novelties. Look around at all the other cool things you can buy while you're waiting, too! :)

Carnival of Doom - SLurl

In this post I am also wearing hair by Magika, Pop is the long style and Fiona is the short one, Cutie Pie shoes by Periquita, skin by Free Spirit in the Desidelia skin tone, and Miriel eyes in Open Ocean. Pictures taken at the Carnival of Doom, both out in the open, and in Hell after I died jumping off the carousel.
