Go Brown. But not THE BROWNS.

I never choose brown, yet I always like it when I wear it. Warm and cozy, comfortable, browns are delicious and earthy and now that I’m swaddled in them I’m happy. For now.

There is a football team called the Browns. I’ve always thought this was a terrible name. I can’t get behind a color. How can I feel the ferocious violence of a sports team, and scream at them to destroy the opponent when they are just called the Browns? I just can’t. This is why I WILL NEVER ROOT FOR YOU BROWNS! Well, also because I’m a Colts fan. But that’s another story. Continue reading

Morning Coffee with Vic

My oldest friend in SL and I had coffee this morning and caught up. He’s one of my favorite people on the grid. He complained about how much stuff I have in my house and how it’s making him lag and I taunted him for how he was dressed and it was like old times.

After he finally left to go to bed – he’s still one of those up all night people while I have left those days firmly behind me, I decided to go check out Relay for Life.  Continue reading

After a Long Day At HAIR FAIR

My long night running the gauntlet of Hair Fair, in and out of every shop, buying, making plans to buy later, demoing, trying to look pretty, all of these things created an intense desire to find a mellow spot to relax and take in my spoils.

CHEEKY PEA has created a perfect summer spot for summer repose with the WHITBY set. You can pick it up at the Season’s Story event, and it’s a great spot to relax or hang out with friends. Delicious beverages are also available. Continue reading

Rest from Vain Fancies

I am full of relaxation today. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because stressful things ended, maybe it’s a new attitude. Maybe it’s just Friday.  Regardless, it’s a good thing to feel peaceful inside your own head.

I have several cool things happening on pixel Gidge today. The first one is this lovely bed, from Sway’s. You hear from time to time on plurk “Waaaah we’re sick of events waaaaa” and while maybe some are, many are not. However, there’s not doubt that I definitely miss mainstore releases. I miss having a lovely gauntlet of shops that I couldn’t wait for their next IN STORE release. Sway appealed to our love our Gacha as well as our desire to shop at mainstores by releasing a really adorable bed, the Dreamfloat hanging bed.  Continue reading

A Get Away Spot

When I was growing up my Dad’s friend had a trailer down on the river. There was a little community of ramshackle trailers of various ilk, and on the weekend, everyone would head down there for some time, sitting, relaxing, fishing, or whatever.

A lot of card games were played, and rather random foods consumed. Chips with strange dips, donuts and maybe a hot dog might make up your lunch. It just all depended on who you were visiting when it was time to eat something. Continue reading

In Dreams

I built a fort in my living room for no better reason than that I could. I brought my records and some snacks, and determined to live in my fort for the night. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I was hearing the end of The Jerk in my head as I planned it. “And some watermelon, and this record player….and THAT’S ALL I NEED, and these sandwiches…”

If you’re old enough, you’ll laugh. Continue reading

Me And My Body

My new SLINK Physique body and I have a busy day ahead of us. I decided to feed it some breakfast, to find out if it’s as big of a foodie as my old body was. Indeed it is. I picked up a new toaster from What Next for FLF which is the PERFECT addition to my shades of pink kitchen, and it makes lots of yummies.  Continue reading

My Everyday Physique

I have been fascinated by the idea of mesh bodies for some time, yet I have to admit, I’ve been somewhat unsure what I would use one for. After all, it’s mesh. How will my clothes go on over it? How will the alphas work? Is this even going to work? I was optimistic when Siddean announced SLINK would have a mesh body, even though I just wasn’t SURE.

You’ve seen it now, the nudity has abounded on blogs. Being nude in the new mesh body wasn’t my concern, I knew we could be nude and be beautiful. I decided to test how it would work as a functional piece of my every day look. Continue reading
