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.

A Tuesday Respite

Movie Time

Tuesday after a long day of being a pixel girl I decided to Christmas the place up. The old tree from Moss and Mink with it’s pastel loveliness fits in perfectly with my very Gidgey house.

Sometimes in my little world I have to admit I just like to do nothing, so I found a movie and the cat and I settled in. Honestly, I’ve had these cats so long I don’t think I can SL without them. They greet me when I come home, they are little snuggly friends that make wherever I live a home.

Bakes on Mesh can be a bit ….NIPPLY my friends.

I’m also trying out a new shape for a new head. Have you demo’d the recently released new SLINK REDUX heads? I felt like shaking it up so I’ve tried out a new one and a new shape to boot. What do you think? It’s very different for me but I like it.

He wants me to buy him to cat toys…

I suppose I should have a turkey dinner ordered or something ? I’ve made no plans, invited no one.

Thanksgiving without all the fuss doesn’t really sound so bad. Sometimes even a pixel girl just needs to relax.

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.

Lurking Horror and Halloween Fun

I spent way too much time last night going through things named pumpkin, Halloween, skeleton etc in preparation for the Halloween Home Tour!  I have so much to do and I’m SO excited! This is my FAVORITE time of year in SL! Continue reading

The In Between

My first thought today was to find some sort of horrible St Patrick’s Day nightmare and blog it as though I thought it were fitting.

But hell I’ve done that for almost a decade so I decide nah, let it go finally. I mean it’s not like Shamrock Pasties and butt plugs are in short supply on Marketplace, if one is so inclined.  Yet I just wasn’t feeling it.

I guess I’m just in a “Let me stand in front of this giant bear holding an umbrella” sort of mood. What can I say? Continue reading

Brilliant Friends

Please Proceed to the Nearest ExitI just read two books back to back that made me realize there is this whole genre of books with a similar form. I have read many of them over the years, but never realized what they were. I decided to call this genre Brilliant Friends books after Elena Ferrante’s magical Neapolitan Quartet and its first book My Brilliant Friend. The stories are all told by an adult woman looking back on an intense high school friendship that was formative, changing their lives in some way or another. The narrator is the more subdued friend, the quiet one, the follower who is remembering the brilliant, defiant, bold, brave and ultimately tragic friend. Tragedy can take many forms, not just death, but always, the narrator ends in a better place than the brilliant friend. Thinking about it, both the books I just read (Marlena and Please Proceed to the Exit) fit that model but not just them. There’s The Girls by Emma Cline, The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel, even All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda, a mystery has the brilliant friend disappear, runaway or murder victim.
