Revisiting Old Friends

So lovely was the loneliness of a wild lake.
NYU Crossover Slim Tee and Mid Lace Floral Skirt

After my long absence, it has been fun to sort through clothes from old favorites. NYU has always been a favorite of mine. NyuNyu Kimono designs for us residents who don’t want to wear clubwear all the time. She has two stores. This is the older one. This is the newer one. The thing is, there are great clothes at both of them.

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.

Swim Harder

When I put on the gorgeous bikini from Zaara, I immediately wanted to take pictures on the beach.  I popped on over to The Trace Too and was immediately reminded of one of the reasons I stopped logging into Second Life. It seems to me once I put on my mesh body, hands, feet, head, hair, clothing, accessories, and a pose hud, I could not move. I took one picture and then spent about 2 hours trying to reposition the camera. I gave up and went back to my prim in the sky.

Long Time, No Blog

Long Time, No Blog

Hello, world! That’s what the blank sample post always starts with in WordPress and it seems appropriate as it has been a long time since I last blogged. Fifteen months! I won’t bore you with all the details, but I have been having some health issues that just made SL seem overwhelming.  

On to more interesting topics like this gorgeous Poker Suit from Baiastice. I don’t know why it’s called Poker Suit, except maybe the décolletage will distract other players enough to help you win. I can see that happening. The top is tailored with a pagoda shoulder, a fitted waist, and a styling HUD that allows you to wear it cropped or with a peplum. You can also wear it with the bra showing or hidden and choose from a range of colors. The pencil skirt length can also be shortened with the HUD. There are a range of solid and prints. I chose this lovely lace brocade. With the print, I wanted a simple, classic shoe and there’s nothing more classic than Slink’s Siren stilettos

Long Time, No Blog
The beautiful pagoda shoulders add architectural interest to the Poker Suit jacket.

The jewelry is from Kunglers. I am wearing the Lola necklace and Vera earrings. Both come with a HUD scripted to allow changes to the metal and stones. The necklace also allows us to change the color of the cords. The nails are from AlaskaMetro, the Kimono manicure suiting the laciness of the suit. 

Long Time, No Blog
I love Dura’s short hair. 

Finally, Glam Affair’s Stella adds the final touches.

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.

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.

What to Do On Easter?

Easter Town, I am IN  You

My Easter weekend was fairly ridiculous as you’re about to see. I did a carrot car race, a peep race that was complete with evil rabbits throwing eggs at me. I hopped around like a nut on a bouncy rabbit, took a balloon ride and more.

Easter Town is really where it’s at.

Bouncy Bouncy Bouncy Bouncy

There really wasn’t any reason NOT to go, I didn’t have any plans and I’m about to move (yes again) and well, what’s the point of a holiday if you can’t do the fun stuff in SL?

It was really an adorable sim, one of Laura Liberty’s labors of love. She always creates such fun holiday environments and lots of the pieces are for sale for you to decorate your own land.

ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

I’ve had a productive day, doing silly things, which is the point now isn’t it?

Zero effort was put in to this pose, though….also lol this texturing lol

I love this little town though. It’s so much fun.

What are you doing in SL for Easter? I highly recommend Easter Town!

Roly Poly Fun Times

I highly recommend the Peeps Race but do look sharp at the end…

What Was I Doing Anyway

I have absolutely no idea.

I mean, I was probably doing something when I logged out on Christmas eve. But two months have passed and I’m afraid I’m at a loss for what it was I was doing. 

I seem to have dressed for an intimate encounter. I wonder if I had a date? Probably not. My husband would disapprove.  

I’ve been gone so long I got kicked out of two groups. I wonder if I liked those groups? I don’t even know what they were. 

I don’t know what 2019 holds for Gidge. But what I do know is, I missed this place and this fun. 

My friend Putrid said I look like I’m ready for a spanking in this get up. MAYBE I AM GIRL STOP JUDGING ME.

Maybe this year I smoke.

Let’s see what 2019 is going to be. I am feeling pretty good.
