Adventures In An Off Road Coupe

With no real destination in mind I got behind the wheel at sunset and decided to travel off the beaten path. I just needed to get somewhere I hadn’t been, somewhere to be a silent version of me for a day perhaps, one where I could reflect and think alone.

I have a new car, so what better time to go exploring?

I knew I was in the right place when I came into a clearing and found the giant Buddha transmitting peace and calm to me. This was where I was going to stay tonight.  Continue reading

Foxy Lady

Garbaggio shoots and SCORES this round of The Arcade with an amazing new decor piece for you home. It’s every girl’s shoe dream come true, and it’s clearly meant to be a staple in my new home. Shoes? Yes please. I need them all.

I’m in love with a new hair do from DOE as well. She makes the most femme pretty hairs, this release from The Arcade is now different. For me, I’m always excited to see what the BACK of her hair will be. She always does lovely braids and looks that are a surprise when you see the back. Love this one.

As you can see I’m bedecked by foxes as well. I am thinking of employing them in my new home to keep the vermin at bay. Do you suppose it will work?

Happy Saturday girls. THE ARCADE is open and ready for you to add to the fun of your Second Life.

Dracarys Macaron

Two of my favorite things, macarons and the ability to set people on fire, are both available at the up coming round of The Arcade. I have to admit you would probably only get a wee bit singed by my friend here yet, I can dream.

The hat and purse are two of my favorites for this round. You can get the purse in rigged or unrigged versions which is helpful for you who have need of one vs. the other. It’s so cute, I would totally carry this purse in RL. Continue reading

Start With Some Fruit

I’m trying to be healthier. I tend to be just so terribly lazy so I thought to myself, SELF, get up, get dressed in something cute and have some delicious fruit for breakfast. JUST DO IT. Get yourself organized and get some stuff done. Continue reading

Shut Up and Drive

I had to have the PINK Convertible from Consignment at THE ARCADE this month and as a result, my friends got cars. YAY for my friends right? But I DID end up with the pink eventually which is really all that matters.

I should get a garage for it, don’t you think? Continue reading

After the Doom

I come in to the settlements to get news or when it’s barter time, just to make an appearance.  It’s important not to be forgotten out here. Not that anyone would be likely to be helpful if there was help that was needed. It’s more about position, about who you are in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t barter.

I take what I want and everyone can just like it or not.  Mostly, I don’t take anything. No need to create friction, unless I just feel like having a fight. Mostly I don’t.

I come in to the main settlement every few weeks and wander around the perimeter. You never know what you’re going to find in the settlements, newcomers, oldbies with an axe to grind that’s as old as glitchpants, or calm. I am not here for trouble, just to learn what’s new, and to remind them I’m here.

I’m always here.  Continue reading

Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so.

Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. Continue reading

What’s Your Poison At The Arcade?

I have a troubling problem. I am addicted to the sweets that are created in SL. Maybe it’s not just because I love them in real life, but the more beautiful they are the more likely it is must have them.

The ARCADE is a breeding ground for such creations and I have to admit, I love them for it. Wedding cake? I don’t need a wedding. I’ve got a cake. I’d rather have the cake, frankly.

The Arcade, that bastion of goodness you didn’t know you needed, is closing tomorrow at midnight. All the lovely things will go away and you’ll have to wait three months.

I on the other hand will be stuffing my face like a monster with these sweets.

It’s not too late!

Get over there before they are gone!

The Arcade Closes at Midnight Saturday

This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one

“This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one. There were still plenty left running to keep the air over Detroit filled with that choking industrial aptitude, but you were never far from a hollowed-out factory, massive steel tubes on the roofs pointing up toward the sky with nothing left inside but dust and cobwebs. These giant pillars of concrete and metal now jutted high like extended index fingers from broken and casted hands, pointing toward something they would never touch.”
― Michael A. Ferro, TITLE 13: A Novel

This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one
The Arcade closes at midnight Saturday and if you let that happen without picking up the fabulous industrial pieces from NOMAD, you will miss out. The gacha has the delicious name of My Cozy Little Industrial Facility that cracks me up in the best possible way.
