This is a true story. I wanted an item at 22769. It was a hunt item. I couldn’t find it. It was one of my morning log in times, and usually I’ve got about 30 minutes to log in, dress, shoot, edit and post. I do this most days. I spent 20 minutes looking, got bitter, happened to find a different item, and left. I remembered that I hate hunts. I did however find this amazing dress, which I wasn’t looking for, for the Invitation Only Hunt? I don’t even know what that is. But this dress is a total score.
Cajsa invited me over to her new place for coffee. I expounded to her how much I hate hunts. I think it’s my old AV age. I’ve been there done that. OMG I JUST WANT THE THING CAN I JUST BUY IT? I know that’s not the spirit of the hunt. But I think that’s me being a cranky “Mature” avatar. I officially gave up hunts in 2010. I need to return to that maybe in 2014. But I won’t say old. I’m not old. I’m 37. (points if you get that).
The dress I did get (and for free) is a GORGEOUS winter sweater dress and I’ve had it on for like two days – it’s really nice. 22769 is a great, well made brand. And their hunt worked because I saw some cute things I’m going to go back and buy.
I had so much fun over at Cajsa’s house, it got me to thinking about how much I used to spend my time sitting around peoples houses talking, and having people over at my house, it used to be what we did. What’s the point of never visiting, of decorating your house, just to be alone?
I rectified that my making my friends Kitty and London come over to sit about and chat that same evening. It reminded me of why I love SL when I started, the people!
Next time they come over and I going to set the zooby baby to CRAWL and let it chase them around the house. 🙂 OK I WON’T I PROMISE PLEASE COME BACK SOME TIME!
I ended up pairing my casual but classic sweater dress with some amazing shoes from Miamai because I can’t stop wearing them. I had to skype Grazia to ask her if I was doing it wrong because I couldn’t figure out how they stay on.
Her answer? MAGIC.
I believe MAGIC is the best answer ever.
Happy Tuesday my pretties!
