Sometimes...

You just need a hug...

WTF of the Day: Holy Crap! Bunny Clones!

I got a message that Lag went offworld. I mean, really, Lag is a house bunny...he doesn't roam around outside so how did THAT happen? I panicked at first because when I re-rezzed him, he disappeared! And again!

And then this...Uh-oh...they're multiplying...

A Swooner Sandwich?

We were having a great time dancing at the Radio Riel party at Alcatraz in the Jazzer's Paradise sim. My fellow Swooners Gabi and Eds were dancing in the cell, and then asked if I'd like to join them for a sandwich? Yeah, sure, why not?

Chilling with Eds & Dia

I got an IM and tp from Edwina simply saying "Put on a bikini and come on!" I had a great time lounging at a hot tub with her and Dia, and I don't know what was cuter...the hot tub or the gent who lived nearby! Yummy! We were laughing about how much jewelry we all have on with our itty bitty swimsuits...

Moulin Rouge!

I bought a pretty new can-can outfit and felt inspired to visit the Moulin Rouge in Paris 1900...I thought I'd take a closer look at the famous "l'elephant"...
I kicked up my heels as I swung on the trunk!
And felt very "Satine" as I reclined in the upper inner boudoir...
And stood in the upper cupola balcony overlooking the trademark windmill. I had a great time!

New Build in Progress!

Working on a new Caledon build for a friend...Don't let the wall colors and textures fool you. Ooo! This is going to be pretty!

Don't Go AFK

At least not at a Steelhead town meeting...

Poor Doc Mason!

SL Exhibit Hopping: Bomb Factory "Windows" Art Installation

Taking the advice of Hotspur's recent post, I thought I would visit the Bomb Factory installation by artist D.B. Bailey. I agree with Hotspur's assessment of it...this was simply fantastic. It really is within a small place, but you don't mind at all and can't help but be impressed by the warm autumn colors as you walk or fly about within it...

Exhibit Hopping: AzA Zymurgy and Madcow Cosmos

My Steelhead neighbor (and their resident zombie) AzA Zymurgy is highly creative. He invited me to visit his exhibit ChemGnosis and see his work...I also got a notice about a Madcow Cosmos exhibit at the AngelGate Gallery in Pinta. I thought I'd go because Madcow is one of my favorite SL artists. His sculptures are these amazing, epic pieces that you have to see to believe. This one is entitled "Ironheart"
"Cancer's Revenge"
"Hermit Chariot"
...and "BigSmall Battle". Go see it now as the exhibit will be ending soon!

Tribute Island Movie Interactive Displays

The Hollywood & TV memorials at Tribute Island allowed you to interact with them. I don't think I need to say more about this next photo...My what large teeth you have?
Elle...Elle L.?
I like 'em tall, dark and...handsome ya big ape!
Otenth was laughing as the top of this dalek soon exploded, giving new meaning to the term "hot seat".

SL Bloggers Party: Tribute Island

This month's SL Bloggers party was hosted by Nikk Huet at the new Tribute Island sim, which is comprised of interactive memorial displays...Here I am grooving!
An overview of the sim...
And Otenth and I taking a ride on the really nice (and working!) monorail!

Jello in Unusual Places

Dia had a party at her home that I can only describe as "super fun" for lack of a better description! A small group of friends dancing, teasing one another, laughing and having a great time. I will say that fainting with a sword and scabbard on your back hurts because it digs into you, you know...

The party got wild. I had challenged Hotspur to a bikini jello wrestling match the other day and he called my bluff. Frequency brought out the wrestling balls and he brought the jello and it was ON. Folks got pinned, bitten (sorry about that Mr Offcourse), and slammed. I was getting offers to help get jello out of some more, um, unusual places, and I couldn't stop laughing I had so much fun!

Not in Kansas Anymore

Today I thought I would tp over to finally see AM Radio's wheatfields installation...What a beautiful build. If I was alone, I probably would have run around in there...I haven't really been myself lately...I feel I've gotten away from a lot of the things I really enjoyed about SL and the things that made me happy within it. I've been doing more of that lately...getting out and seeing exhibits and unusual things and builds again. I also used to love to swim and windsurf, so I thought I'd take a swim in the lake at my home Vista del Mar.
I should spend more time here than I do...

Haunting Hour and Gardens Almost Complete

Hotspur invited Dia and me to join him in Octoberville for the Haunting Hour, when they play classic and modern horror/ghost audio tales. The one we listened to tonight was about a town called Shadow Falls. You can listen to it for yourself here.
We even had a full moon...
Afterwards, Dia visited me at Vista, where I have almost completed my gardens that have been a months-long work in progress. You can see the artworks by Zero Ball behind the vineyard and behind me. I can't wait for Newbe to create my Vista del Mar wine casks and bottles!
Here's Dia posing. I'm really happy with the gardens. It's a place of peace for me there...

Zephyru's Exhibit Opening & the Venice Sim

Artist Zephyru Zaphedzhi invited me to the opening of his new show at the AA Expo Geneve gallery. I have a French name, but don't speak French, but it didn't stop me from enjoying myself...While there I met a woman who promotes the Second Museum of Venice, who gave me a LM to the sim...
I headed over to check it out and enjoyed wandering the bridges and canals and narrow streets...
After he attended Zen's handfasting, Newbe tp'd over and joined me to see the sights...
Venice is a very pretty Italian sim that's worth the visit for the feel alone...

Zero Ball and Meta Art

I have seen some of Zero Ball's pieces before while out in the world. He creates artwork--which he calls "meta art"--just within SL that pulsates and swirls with color and energy. So when I saw a notice to come visit his Meta Art Gallery in Donateli and even receive a free piece just for today I could not resist.

Here is Zero himself, standing inside one of his pieces. I bought a mediation ball version of this piece, created by his wife Sylster[sp] Piccard...Some of his pieces are meant to be stepped inside of and viewed through mouselook, such as this one--"Universal Core"--which he gifted me with...
Or this one, "Light of My Life". They were both so beautiful. I have placed "Universal Core" at the top of my waterfalls and his actual free piece, "Object With No Name," in my vineyard at my home Vista del Mar.
Later, I went to Steelhead for their Neko Night party. This is what I looked like before I crashed as I had been exploring. Yeah, that's whisky, dynamite and a Colt. Never know what you might find out there...

Kakita's Grand Opening

Marcell finally had the grand opening party of his shop, Kakita's, which specializes in Japanese goods, including incredibly beautiful microprim kanzashi hair ornaments and color changing geta shoes. I put on my best autumn kimono and popped in... Many of his friends and colleagues from SL's various geisha okiyas and tea houses stopped through...
There were performances and prizes given out. I won two for answering the following questions correctly: "Name the 4 main stages of a geisha's training" (shikomi, minarai, maiko, geisha) and "What was the given name of the first Shogun of the Tokugawa era" (Ieyasu). It was very nice and the performances were lovely.
