Halloween on Millbank

Gogo recommended the Halloween Experience over at the MILLBANK sim and I decided that once I had a cup of coffee it was time to get in the spirit. After all – this is one of my FAVORITE times of year on the grid. There is a haunted tour which is delightfully spooky.

It was a lot of fun, but then something weird happened. Right after I crossed over the cemetery…

I passed by this dude and his dog on a foggy street. I assume he lived there? I mean, it’s a street – I guess these are someone’s homes? Spooky people’s homes but homes nonetheless. Anyway, as i float along a walking path I realize that he is running behind me. He’s following me!

WHY? What are you doing ?

He never spoke to me, but he and his big dog essentially chased after me the last 1/3 of the tour, following me like some creepy killer. It was actually unnerving.

It reminded me a lot of the early days of the grid where noobs like me wouldn’t have their lots restricted and people would barge in and threaten you, as though they could do something to you. They couldn’t, but it was scary and weird when it would happen. I’m not sure why this dude was following me or what he was even doing. Maybe I just happened to be taking his favorite dog walking path.

Except dogs in SL don’t ACTUALLY have to be walked.

I’m totally getting my big dog out when I get home. This is some boo sheet.

Kawaii a Bit

I have to admit that one of the things I LOVE most about BOM being a thing is my ability to pull out RIDICULOUS things from the beginnings of SL and wear them. SUCH AS – these jeans from Butterfly Island – was that the place or the brand? The brand – was it Coconut Ice? Man I can’t remember….. Oh Butterfly Island, I coveted all your things once upon a time. I bought them, I stalked the lucky chairs, I was a fairy more often than not.

I went back once a couple of years ago or more and was nostalgic and sad for how amazing it used to be – and how it simply had not kept up in the way old stores don’t sometimes.

Thus, I put on my fairy jeans and relive my love of those days when belts were painted on our pants and we thought that was just lovely.

The secret these days, of course, is simply not to move too much in your BOM pants or that waistline slips around like crazy and you look nuts. Thus, I took may photos and tried to find the least nuttiest.

I don’t care. I still love these jeans. Weird painted fairies and all.

Now who wants to help me eat this gummy bear? This thing is ridiculous.

Seaside Yet Again

I stopped by Rainbow Reef in my brand new swimsuit to visit and maybe gawk at all the lovers canoodling and wouldn’t you know it? No one is here.

Looks like I don’t have to share a paddle-boat with anyone though. WINNING!

If you need me, I’ll be in the water.

August 30th, 2020 – Fairy tale

Once upon a time, I was a fae. I would roam the lands of a fantasy role play sim, wearing beautiful gowns and wings. But then sad things happened, I lost the love of my Slife, and left a land that no longer felt like home. I sometimes still miss the simple joy of fly-dancing with my beloved around the drum circle, surrounded by my best friends, Shay the fae, Maelenn the avariel, Eithne the dryad and Richy the dragon. So when I spotted the wings from Decoy at Collabor 88, it felt like a blast from the past, and I just had to put together an outfit with The Secret Store’s latest cutie, and find a whimsical place to take a picture.

Since I got my Lelutka Nova head, I’ve been wearing the same skin, as it was the only one I demoed that felt like me. Well I finally found another one, but, oh well, it’s yet again a skin from Lara Hurley. What can I say, her work is amazing.
I’d also like to tell you about a store I discovered not long ago, Simple Bloom. If you’re not satisfied with your eyebrows, or if you want to try something different, and get a unique look, go visit their store, they have hundreds of different eyebrows, mostly BOM, and they are extremely well made.

August 28th, 2020. A pink day

Oh hi! Today I didn’t go to work because of what I thought was a sciatica. Turns out it’s a tendonitis in my buttock. Yes, you may laugh, and no, I don’t know how I did that. Anyway, since I had a little time at home on my own, I managed to put together an outfit and take a few pictures.

I went to Uber and grabbed a few of the gifts that each store has, as it’s a birthday round. These lovely glasses were one of them. So were the adorable fairy lights in the picture below. I also grabbed (not a gift but worth it) another set of gorgeous rings from Yummy, and the matching nails from Nylon Outfitters.

Midweek Hurdle

We did it. We got past the midweek hurdle. Personally it was a struggle but I am struggling in general to ever get anything done these days. The ennui or laziness that seems to own me is pervasive. I’m trying to fight it but, the struggle is real.

I probably just need to go shopping.

Shopping fixes everything, right?

Domestic Goddess

I’m feeling domestic this Monday evening so despite being overdressed for it, I’m doing a bit of baking in my extremely silly kitchen. I swear I’m going to put in a proper kitchen at some point but this one makes me giggle and thus, for now it stays.

How was your Monday? Mine was pretty great, despite the fact that I’m still vexed that I didn’t get the chair that matches my desk and it’s not out at the mainstore yet.

Some day. Until then, I’ll just eat these pies.

SL17B

I had an inauspicious landing at SL17B as the landing point i chose dropped me right in the middle of some pool inside a building of some sort. It never rezzed to the point that I could figure out if it was a temple, or some sort of memorial or what it was I was trapped in. I finally managed to climb out, irritated to say the least but as always, I wanted to love SL17B.

It’s like the sims on SL17B were planned and put together by people who never once had to plan or lay out an event. There is some sort of joyous “cram everything together and who cares how it looks” planning that seems to go on. What this ends up meaning for us mortals not rocking the greatest gaming computer is that it is lag hell, and rendering hell. Is that a rocket ship? Is that a rock? Is that a cyclops? I’ll never know. It never rezzed.

It’s hard to put down the amazing and inspired vignettes our fellow citizens make though. There’s so much joy and creativity, little activities scattered through out to make you smile and let you enjoy the view. Sometimes maybe it’s ok if things aren’t perfect, if you can still enjoy the fun of it.

I stumbled in to a poetry cafe, where we were invited to sit and then touch the photo of the poet we were interested in. I was handed a copy of Maya Angelou’s Poem “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” which was poignant to me in light everything going on out in the world.

There are some amazing builds, beautiful vignettes to take photos or just play and enjoy your SL. It’s worth the lag and slogging through the mess of it, it really is. There are gifts that are amazing and you can find those in concentrated gift areas. There’s also a shopping area – shop and hop or something or other. You can locate them all here at this link.

Have you gone? You need to go.

After all – there is a free Kittycat! Always a win.

There was a lot more to see and do – obviously one place was giving out a horse to ride, which I found to be delightful. There is a trolley but I could never manage to get on it – i find that confusing. I waited a ridiculous amount of time – let me tell you. It kept going! There is also a drive in movie which LOOKS great but doesn’t work – it says you can click on the screen to start it but it just craps out.

Regardless of these quibbles – SL17B will only come once and this is your chance. Get off your platform and go have some fun. Be ridiculous. Pick up the freebies. Come for the fun, stay for the lag.
