Happy New Year's

A Happy New Year to you and yours!

Here are my SL resolutions:

1. Spend more time exploring

2. Sail and fly more often

3. Not to let things get to me very much and enjoy myself. After Tele once told me, "It's're just an avatar..."

4. Reduce my inventory

5. Manage my time better while inworld

Happy Festivus!

Festivus for the Rest of Us! Just for the fun of it I made this aluminum Festivus pole...You can find it for sale at my E.Laval shops at SL Exchange or OnRez! Enjoy!

Vote for More Groups! Using the Jira System

I hate leaving a group to add a new one...

Add that to the fact that I am a citizen of a literal micronation and you can only imagine how many groups I'm in just related to that. Toss in the landowning groups that I also have to be a member of due to my land holdings and there's another chunk gone, poof! I want to be a member of my friends groups or just groups that seem like too much fun (like "Ferret!"), but I can't. If you have the same problem that I do, you can go to SL's Jira system and vote on it HERE.

If you've never used it before, it's easy...When you're in the topic/issue, look in the left sidebar. Under "Voting", click on "Vote for it". You'll be taken to a log-in page if you aren't already, which is simple...the same usrename and login for the main SL site.

It's that easy!

23 Skidoo at Flashman's!

I got a flapper dress as a gift, which meant an excuse to wear my bob and go exploring out in the world. I ended up at Flashman's 1920s bar. From the dances and poseballs available, I am sure that when folks are there, it's a busy, fun, rowdy place! I hope to visit again when it's like that. Here I am looking very Louise Brooks...

Hunks of Victorian Guys

*sighs dreamily* I don't need to say anything more except Steelhead made over its goal at the fun Shirtless O'Clock fundraiser tonight. With guys like Phin here losing their shirts? I know that I was happy...

Hot Tubbing Again

I have not found a dress for the big Winterfell-Caledon Ball on Saturday. I will probably make my own. In the meantime, I am threatening to go in this little Solange outfit I picked up:

8 Things About Elle--the AV Version

Jenn Heinrichs of the Best of Second Life group tagged me for the 8 items meme (thanks darlin'...glad you enjoy the blog!) I've answered this in my "Stroll" blog HERE, so I won't go through the tagging others part since I've already threatened--I mean, convinced--them to do so. So, here in elinsl, I'll do an "Eladrienne"/SL version of it!

1. My AV's middle name is "Melinde". My RL nickname really is Elle.

2. I once got into an argument in SL in Spanish and, while passable, I am not quite fluent in it...I may have been calling him a "purple deer-eating bowl of hairclips" for all that I know!

3. My favorite architect is Santiago Calatrava. There's an "airiness" to his work that I love and SL seems like such a great medium to recreate or create builds inspired by his.

4. I miss my RL sister Baube Laval. She does not come into SL as much anymore. *frowns*

5. I like my men w/dark hair. Ooo. And red-brown. Light brown works too. And white hair! Ooo! Oh, forget it...I'm hopeless.

6. I have always wanted to be blue or a glowing ball of light as an AV. I like dark elves/drow too. And I love being a tiny.

7. I have a male shape that I use for my fashion design fitting purposes. No, I do not feel myself up. *rolls eyes*

8. I really enjoy art exhibits and talking to artists. Builders and scripters intrigue me and I always learn new things. I am always in awe of the creativity that I find here in SL and look forward to more.

Gehry-Inspired Build

The Tracer, head of the SL School of Architecture (SLSA), had the grand opening of his new Gehry-inspired build tonight, inspired by RL architect Frank Gehry and his Stata Building at MIT and the Guggenheim Bilbao.The Tracer (onstage), took a minute to talk to the assembled group of RL & SL architects and architecture aficionados about the build. Its original structure is 950 prims (and is still part of it), but the entire build tops out at 3750.
The build's usage is still being determined, so its open spaces haven't had their purposes determined...
He said he was also inspired by SL architect Scope Cleaver's use of interior and exterior walkways...
If you are a fan of architecture, RL or SL, you should go visit Architecture Island to see this for yourself!

Winter in Caledon

I always heard that winters in Caledon were very pretty...Now I know firsthand...
