If you’ve been around a while you’ll know that one of the dearest things in my heart is the 500 Festival Weekend which is of course the days leading up to and including the INDY-FUCKING-FIVE-HUNDRED. The greatest spectacle in Motor Racing.
The Indy 500 is special to me for so many reasons. I’m FROM Indianapolis. It was something I’d do with my dad, he introduced me to the race, the joy of getting to watch qualifications from the suites (free food and booze yo) and the excitement of hearing the unique sound that only IndyCars make.
My dad was introduced to the Race as a young man, and was there the year Parnelli Jones won in the so called WHOOSH mobile – a car that made a woosh rather than a specific IndyCar scream when it went by. It looked a lot like #18 behind me there.
I might go buy #18.
I remember going to the race several times with my dad – and then later I went with my friends and engaged in the Bacchanalia that I had not been aware of when I was with a parent. You might not have been before, but let me tell you, the Indy 500 is a nonstop fucking PARTY from Thursday to Monday.
God help you if you have to work Tuesday. (Just take it off. We all took it off).
Two days before my dad died, he said his last words.
His last words ?
I love the Indy-Fucking-Five-Hundred. Let’s have a great weekend.

I decided that there was nothing like a movie and an amazing meal to end this week. I was craving sushi and couldn’t decide exactly what so I just had a whole assortment sent over to me. Will I eat it all? Probably. At once? Oh probably not. But it’s so delicious, how could I resist this feast?
I picked it up at an event called the Food Court. They had such a cute assortment of yummies I couldn’t resist. You know how I love to pixel eat!
Despite staying in, I did stray outside just to take in the ocean breeze and really enjoy the surf this beautiful evening. Just listening to it makes me feel so calm and happy. I think that’s why I still love this spot so much and it would be hard to get me to move. It’s a perfect way to end my week, listening to the waves and feeling the warm breeze.
I spent about 30 minutes with my mouth stuck open before I crashed. I took a lot of photos and I do have to admit, this one made me smile. Sometimes it’s okay to be imperfect and happy.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Hello! Two days ago was my 14th rezday, and what a ride it’s been! I recently joined a Facebook group where people who started SL long ago, and this makes me nostalgic. However, some of them are considering coming back, so, it’s good.
Fifty Linden Fridays have been around for 12 years. TWELVE YEARS. What can I say? OMGWTF Barbecue is awesome for keeping that very cool weekly event around for so long. It has never lost in quality, and never got more expensive than 50l$. I’d like to think all the wonderful designers for taking so much time to make things to sell for so cheap!
Anyway, yesterday, the FLF Birthday Bash opened, and for once, it’s not only for one day, but for 3 weeks. So, yes, the sim is full, but be patient, there’s plenty of time to get there and grab ALL the things.
I managed to get a complete outfit there. Apart from the body (Maitreya Lara), the head (LeLutka Briannon), the eyes (Banana Banshee) and the shape (my own), everything you see is from the event, either 50l$ or free.

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.
I don’t know why, but while I was preparing the pictures for this post, I had Amy Winehouse’s song in my head. “You’re trying to make me go to rehab, but I say no, no, no…” Probably the messy hairdo by Doe, or the very 70’s liner from Zibska…

You know what’s funny? I started putting together that outfit a few days ago, and the weather was bright and sunny and frankly a bit too hot for me out here. I guess I was hoping for a little rain to cool the air. Well it worked, I was awaken in the middle of the night by the sound of very heavy rain.

I wear glasses IRL. I don’t mind them, but I wish I could change their colour like I can do in SL, to match my clothes, or my shoes. Cae has a bunch of very pretty pairs out at this month’s round of Uber, it’s just too bad she doesn’t offer a fatpack option, but I did buy 3 out of the 5 or 6 pairs available, I may go back later for the rest…
My friend Isla who owns Cheeky Pea is putting together a small fundraising event to help her sister Stephanie pay for some medical bills her husband left when he passed away unexpectedly, at only 37, a few weeks ago. I made a special recolour, the Stephanie eyes, available in the Cheeky Pea mainstore for only 100l$ for 6 colours, proceeds go to Isla. Other designers will have some lovely things out in a few, I’ll try and show you.
