Planning My Week

I decided to share off my ennui with some good old fashioned planning. I figured if I force myself to do things on a schedule It might help drive away some of the fatigue I seem to be belaboring under. I’m feeling rather excited so – this might just work! Who knows?

Fueled by pizza and pop, I’m ready to make this a productive week on the grid.

How’s your week shaping up?

Kawaii a Bit

I have to admit that one of the things I LOVE most about BOM being a thing is my ability to pull out RIDICULOUS things from the beginnings of SL and wear them. SUCH AS – these jeans from Butterfly Island – was that the place or the brand? The brand – was it Coconut Ice? Man I can’t remember….. Oh Butterfly Island, I coveted all your things once upon a time. I bought them, I stalked the lucky chairs, I was a fairy more often than not.

I went back once a couple of years ago or more and was nostalgic and sad for how amazing it used to be – and how it simply had not kept up in the way old stores don’t sometimes.

Thus, I put on my fairy jeans and relive my love of those days when belts were painted on our pants and we thought that was just lovely.

The secret these days, of course, is simply not to move too much in your BOM pants or that waistline slips around like crazy and you look nuts. Thus, I took may photos and tried to find the least nuttiest.

I don’t care. I still love these jeans. Weird painted fairies and all.

Now who wants to help me eat this gummy bear? This thing is ridiculous.

Seaside Yet Again

I stopped by Rainbow Reef in my brand new swimsuit to visit and maybe gawk at all the lovers canoodling and wouldn’t you know it? No one is here.

Looks like I don’t have to share a paddle-boat with anyone though. WINNING!

If you need me, I’ll be in the water.

Midweek Hurdle

We did it. We got past the midweek hurdle. Personally it was a struggle but I am struggling in general to ever get anything done these days. The ennui or laziness that seems to own me is pervasive. I’m trying to fight it but, the struggle is real.

I probably just need to go shopping.

Shopping fixes everything, right?

Domestic Goddess

I’m feeling domestic this Monday evening so despite being overdressed for it, I’m doing a bit of baking in my extremely silly kitchen. I swear I’m going to put in a proper kitchen at some point but this one makes me giggle and thus, for now it stays.

How was your Monday? Mine was pretty great, despite the fact that I’m still vexed that I didn’t get the chair that matches my desk and it’s not out at the mainstore yet.

Some day. Until then, I’ll just eat these pies.

Monday Got Me Like…

I didn’t start off my day planning to be a lazy Monday, but I think my relaxing weekend was too relaxing. I couldn’t get myself motivated AT ALL so then, I just decided to do some day drinking.

Luckily, my favorite bar tender was on duty.

Back off Ladies and Gents, he’s MINE!

With Boots on hand to serve up the strongest drinks on the grid, I was assured of a perfect day drinking experience.

It was a Monday Martini kind of day, I thought, and truly, alliteration in your cocktail choices is a sign of civilization isn’t it? I think so.

Rainbow Rooms is a perfect spot for cocktails, day or night. Now, I think I need a nap.

Bringing The Weekend Home

Did Putrid specifically get the baby pool out for me? I’ll never know, but I have to say I spent a lot of time getting wrinkled fingers in it this weekend. It’s a perfect size for a party of 1!

Lake swimming isn’t always my favorite but I have to say, these waters are gorgeous. The linden trailers are so cute, especially lake or river side.

Alas, I’ve got to go home and get back to my regularly scheduled SLife.

See you tomorrow girls!

Weekend at Hooten Holler

I decided to get away from home for the weekend. I’m lakeside at my friend Putrid’s Linden Trailer. I’m planning to relax and unplug for a few days before I return to my equally relaxing life at The Elms.

My hair today is SOLELY the fault of Sydd Sinister who posted these on Facebook and I was ridiculously intrigued by this very silly Spongebob and Patrick inspired hair. There’s probably a bit of copyright infringement in the hair-sticks.

Cooking out on the grill never feels like cooking. It’s just heat and flame and magical delicious meat. I should start cooking out every day at home. It was a perfect lakeside afternoon for it.

Putrid was kind enough to add me to her TV so after I feast on this I’m gonna stretch out inside for a post dinner nap with a murder show on the TV.

It’s a pretty good Saturday night on the grid. Hope yours is the same.

Sunset at Rainbow Reef

It’s been a while since I had somewhere regular to go, and my friend Muff’s RAINBOW REEF beach side bar was just the thing a few days ago. I don’t need to be coerced to buy swimwear. And – I don’t need shoes. This might just be the relaxing zone of my dreams.

My friend Putrid was hanging out and as I love her more than my luggage I ran over to consume ridiculous booze and chill with her. She was being decorative, as per her norm, if somewhat sloppy with her booze. My goodness woman don’t spill!

Your evening can be mellow and chill with good drinks at Rainbow Reef. But man do us all a favor, if you need to do some weird lesbian incest roleplay, keep that in your privates. NOBODY IN LOCAL WANTS TO HEAR ALL THAT.

32 Chocolat

I headed over to Nutmeg to do a little shopping and wandered around the property a while. I found this trolley that has seen better days and and errant moon.

I’m wandering the grid today in search of the chair that matches my new desk and it’s apparently not out at the main store and this is my fault for not having bought it when I bought the desk. Why did I think that my 10454050 desk chairs I already own would work? Why? Because I was being cheap that’s why.

So now I must buy the chair not only because it matches but also because it matches.

I tried on one of Exile’s lovely short styles so I could show off my silly bear earrings I picked up at the SL17B birthday bash.

Brunette Gidge is liking the change. Maybe Brunette for a while? Hard to say. Gidge does like change.

Except when she doesn’t.
