Standing In Place

I found myself feeling blogger-y – compelled to stand in random places with a very serious look on my face.

I have to admit it was more than a passing fancy. I think it was the shoes. The shoes are very “I can walk in stilettos all day why can’t you?” sort of affairs. I picked them up at the Pure Poison sale, I think. Wait, no, maybe not.  The challenge of shopping TOO much is not remembering where you grabbed things. 

I’m very serious. Just look at me. Definitely got the earrings at Pure Poison though!

I’m sporting a new wig from Exile and as always, Kavar delivers amazing, natural hair. I do just love his work, I feel like his consistency is pretty ridiculous after all these years.  Talent is eternal – and we are the beneficiaries of his it would seem.

Now, I’m done being serious. Happy Sunday. Let’s make it a great week!

Big Game Hunter

I spent my Saturday in the wilds of Africa, travelling from savannah to jungle and beyond, in search of lovely places to behold. I wasn’t disappointed.It’s funny how little things can delight in our little pixel world.

Elephants on the march

I slipped around this build in a comfy, breezy gift from Neve – that ever dependable creator of staple items.I was surprised that a gift came with a hud to vary up the print but it did.  That’s just classy and quality. I love creators who give away free gifts that are actually NICE. It says a lot about who they are as a person and a business owner.

These damn monkeys are following me everywhere.

In addition to this breezy summer dress, I’m wearing some perfect slip on Mary Jane’s from Ingenue called Marlo. They are a perfect addition for cute but casual days. 

This is probably supposed to be romantic

Well, I’m not having a romantic gondola ride, but I really did love being my own gondolier on this lovely water tour of the place. I love little gems like this, it was a great way to spend my afternoon. 

Now, I’m going to make a last run at the ARCADE and be at peace with what I didn’t get. What are you up to today?

24 Hour Cupcake Vending

I donned my best party dress from Sascha’s Designs and hit the mean streets of SL16B – only to find it to be a festival of lag and sort of, I don’t know, the usual mainland horror. I will have to try to go back when it’s a bit less chaotic, because I do LIKE the event and there is often some amazing stuff to be found. 

This round I managed to grab my official KittyCats and truly, if I get nothing else, this is a serious tradition to me. Rotting in my inventory are the corpses of every birthday KittyCat they’ve ever made, ready to be resurrected if only I’ll pay for it.

I won’t. 

But it’s the principle of the thing, you know. I have to have them.

After pushing my way through the lag and the half nude people I decided I had to get out and find something else. So what did I find? 24 hour cupcake vending.

Not the hero we need, but the hero we deserve.

Mornings on Mainland

There are people who are too good for mainland, who find the allure of the privately held islands close to their heart. There are some who are in love with the new Linden homes , and who can blame them they are adorable. As for me I’ve returned to the Mainland, and I’m finding that it’s really not the chaos I remember. A little 1024 in a snowy land is proving to be a cozy choice for this busy girl.

I might be lucky that none of my neighbors have put up GOTH SEX CASTLES as some are wont to do around here. My next door neighbor DOES have up those ridiculous Pink Pony ban lines.

Pro-tip, if you furniture is 2010 hideous there is no chance I’m coming traipsing through your house. No no no. You don’t need the ban lines.  Also, your ban lines don’t prevent me from camming in to SEE your 2010 furniture or any other shenanigans. So really, all you’ve done is be ugly by putting those up and forcing me to look at them. LUCKILY Gogo told me how to NOT have to see them so I’m happy now.

The real win is that my friend Putrid is my other neighbor and so we can pop in on each other as much as we like. THAT is awesome. 

I picked up the lingerie at the Pure Poison marketplace sale for 1L – and can we just say it’s more not there than there? Woo my modesty! I’ll stay seated, thank you.

Hope your day is full of beauty and wonder.

Surfin Sunday

I spent the last few days moving house (yes again what can I say) and after working like a peasant moving prims about I decided that I deserved a little vacation.  I grabbed my bags and headed out to try my hand at surfing. I know I’ve done a little now and then throughout the years but it’s been so long since I’ve dedicated a few hours to being able to do it that I thought WHY NOT NOW?

How hard could it be?

Me flying off the board….it’s not easy folks.

Well it’s not easy. AT ALL. There’s a weird combination of skill plus your computers lack of lagging out plus well, just LUCK I think involved. I got knocked off my board a lot. 

It seems like it’s all in your toes, if I’m honest. If i was thinking about my toes when I was guiding her, I managed to not go wonky.  Eventually I ended up doing this a lot, paddling out, surfing in, paddling out, surfing in.

Why is this so satisfying?

I don’t know, but it’s made my day pretty wonderful. 

I have to go home at some point. But not right now.

Loss and Rabbicons

I went to go through Bryn Oh’s Installation as I had not seen the story of the Rabbicorn yet.  If you had asked me “Have you seen all the Bryn Oh installations?” I would have said well DUH yeah of course, what am I a barbarian”” But in fact, I recently realized I had not seen THE RABBICORN.  So I had to amend that ASAP today.

The Tower has obstacles.

I had forgotten the story of the girl who was lost and remade, so I had to walk through that story again so that part two would make sense. I was again struck by the journey up the tower and it’s final destination, the reminder of nightmares that I’ve had desperately trying to reach something only to find the echos of loss and reminders of the past at the end.

Once it is lost, it is gone.

I was reminded again of the sadness of this build, of the dreams lost and the heartbreak within it. I won’t ruin it. You need to see and experience this place yourself. I think I chose to forget. It just hits me that hard.

But the rabbicorn gave me hope. The rabbicorn was built for love and happiness, only to give love wherever it went.

Tick tok rabbit.

I loved the next part of the story and even as the rabbicorn had to flee, I knew where she was going. 

A happy ending?

The rabbicorn found the girl in the tower, tangled in vines.Her heart whirred to life full of love. 

I knew she was going there all along.  I knew that no matter where the Rabbicorn went, she would go to the girl to save her from being so alone and lost.

I wish I had my own rabbicorn.

If you have not seen the build and are interested in the story, here it is. You can visit it in world at Immersiva.

Bathing Is Requisite

So there is an article rolling around the internet written by someone who alleges not to have bathed for a really long time. Thematically the article is trying to say that our western obsession with bathing is unfounded.

NO. This is lies. 

While you might not need to be one of those people who showers twice or three times a day, please don’t think that if you roll around 3-4 weeks unbathed that the rest of us don’t notice. WE NOTICE. For the love of God, wash. WE NOTICE.

There are people who own animals who don’t think their house smells like animals. There are people who live by rivers who don’t think that the outside smells like dank river. 

There are all untruths, brought to you by the fact that you have gone noseblind.

In my pixel world, I never have to worry about these things yet I do observe the appropriate rituals and customs – simply so that my mind is ready for the day. I like the preparation of getting ready to go out in to the world, pixel or not.  I’m worried about the person who wrote that article and how they’re going about in their world, unaware of the horror show they are inflicting on others.

I mean, the smell. My GOD the smell.

The Thames smells a bit though. Nothing to be done about that.

Happy Sunday girls.

3000 Days of KittyCats

Snake Plisskin and love, Flo.

I was given two KittyCats to blog when the brand launched back in the day. I’ve had them out, and considered them a vital part of my SL ever since. I cannot have a home without them. 

When I rezzed up my new apartment – I pulled them out only to find that they were exactly 3000 days old! That’s a reason to celebrate.

Here they are at their very own birthday party. Yes, I know I do know how to party. I’m pretty much a social butterly.

Leave me alone. I really like my Kittycats. 

Apartment Life

Linden Home? Mainland? Rental?

Well the Juicy SIM is gone, and I’m splitting my time between being roomies with Gogo and a little apartment on Cajsa’s land where I can rezz. It’s cozy over here on mainland, with so much going on, it wasn’t so alive before. I’m intrigued.

Do I want one of the new linden homes or a little hunk of mainland?

Exploration

I went riding through the sim Gogo lives on and several others. I can see the appeal of them all. They’re so nicely done, with cute landscaping and such lovely views. It might a ton of fun to live here.

It seems like all the cool kids are doing it.

Breakfast for dinner

After a day of bike riding and exploring new sims that I don’t live on, I was ready to call it quits. Breakfast for dinner always sound so much easier than it is. I still have to cook it and that wasn’t really much on my agenda for today but still, it’s nice to have a home base to HAVE my breakfast for dinner in. 

Even if it’s temporary.
