Jager Tipping

I helped to decorate the ballroom in Steelhead for the Mardi Gras dance and set out "beads" that move around. VelesJaeger Munster, one of the local jagers, decided to sit upon one. A few bumps from me and well...

Mermaid Places: Blake Sea

Tonight, I wore my Kami-Hitoe koi tail and Peter Stindberg's pretty red skin and set out to the Blake Sea. Might as well explore all that water LL's got to offer, right?I swam over to the appropriately named Siren's Isle, where I found a very pretty reef with lots of underwater things to explore. I was in the middle of an IM, so I swam out of the way--trying to blend in I guess. And I'll admit it was fun to do. A tiny mermaid came over to me and giggled, complementing me on my skin and asking me if I was hiding (I was!). Turns out the little mermaid was Divergence Magic, who writes a very good blog called "The Oceans Wastelands" about all things SL mer. She's the one who actually tipped me about this place. Hey Divergence, I've got lots of again soon?
I swam over to a nearby isle (Windlass?) and found these piers...
Afterwards, I rested my fins on an island in Blake Sea Kraken and enjoyed the view...

New Taloo: Mardi Gras Comes to a Close

Salut chers! I had managed to make it to big dance celebrating the end of Mardi Gras in New Taloo tonight. Wasn't able to make the parade earlier due to my attending the inauguration of the new mayor in New Babbage. Cato Quan asked me if I'd like to do a little foxtrotting with him...Now you know I'm not turning down a dance! Hopefully he won't try to shoot my rabbit again...

In the Fishbowl

Popped inworld briefly to help Lunar out with a texture. I was still a mermaid, but where else is a mermaid out of the water supposed to go in the meantime? Solution? I had a fishbowl handy...

Mermaid Places: Mermaid Temple and SL Botanical Gardens

After getting a beautiful tail and AO for Steelhead's themed dance tonight, I found that I enjoyed being a mermaid so much that I wondered where else I could go. I'll add to this list (and the SLurls) as I find more mer-friendly places. Browsing Search, I ended up at the Mermaid Temple...
Its underwater areas were lots of fun to explore and I found this cadre of sunken statues...I then found my way to the SL Botanical Gardens and its mermaid grotto...Then I thought my blue skin would look really nice in this form...And I swam cross-sim through this really pleasant creek. I think I surprised some folks, but they were polite and didn't bother me or anything...

New Taloo: Gearing Up for Mardi Gras

Salut chers! Thought I'd head over to New Taloo and see what was goin' on. Mmhmm...I was a flapper possum...
Stood on Shotgun Row talking to Nikita Weymann and Louhi Gothly about Mardi Gras and goings-on in Taloo. Right now there's a big hunt going on. Lots of fun stuff to be found at the artists and merchants around town (including my place, Miss Elle's Lucky #7, on Shotgun Row). There's gonna be a big parade with floats on Sunday at Noon...I can tell ya, my being a possum wasn't the most unusual thing to see...TWO streetcards went by us (double the runnin' over trouble, I say) and a shout went out as Johnny Skosh rode by in one: "ZOMBIE!" He politely said hello to me as he went by. Guess possum brains ain't appetizin'. Gotta love this place...

Exploring with Elle & Phin!

Phin and I decided to hop around the Grid tonight exploring. How does the game work? Go to a location and once there, pick a cool item and then choose the next location from its creator's picks. We started out in a 2004 build called Chase's Manhattan, where we zipped around on a Vespa. Phin was holding on for dear life and wisely said nothing about my steering...
Since we were on an older build kick, we ended up at Midnight City, via Aimee Weber's picks...Phin wanted to show me something fun at Artificial Isle and I found the Hall of Justice, taking me back to my kiddie Super Friends (Wonder Twin powers...ACTIVATE!) days...We then ended up at the Mocha Cathedral, where I'm sure Phin was thanking God he survived that Vespa ride...And somehow he wasn't afraid to let me be the captain of the Defiant at the Indigo: Sci-Fi Geeks Museum & Theater...

Steelhead Valentine's Day...Massacre

Only in Steelhead would a Valentine's Day party have a massacre theme, and we turned out with tommy guns and flapper glad rags to celebrate it...Some unfortunate folks weren't able to celebrate though...

Don't Drink & Tiny...

My friend Teal ("Lady Tigress") is getting partnered and the tinies of Raglan threw a bridal shower for her...Complete with Catten as a ferret stripper, which is funny since he probably didn't have any clothes on to begin with...There was dancing, there was serene floating in the water, tiny drinks all around and lots of laughter...And then someone found their molotov cocktail...drinking and tinies DO NOT MIX!

Just Another Night in Steelhead

I logged in tonight and got a tp right away to main Steelhead. Why? The chipper was out. This notorious piece of machinery is brought out from time to time. Your AV touches it, you get pulled through, you can guess the rest. Why is everyone on the ground though? Oh, whiskey. Yes. The whiskey did it. That's the mayor of Babbage in the center there, looking on and probably thinking "What the hell?!"They tried to get me to touch it ("Touch the magic box little squirrel!), but it doesn't work on tinies. Krystine brought out the riding ostriches, and then Remington produced a pole and made 3L dancing. I was told I was overcharged. At some point, Mrs Peterman flew off with a seagull. We were all laughing so hard it hurt. Only in Steelhead.

Feeling Squirrelly

Yup. That's a marshmallow tower in my front lawn. And yup, Phin's just as crazy as I am...nom nom nom.

Raglan Shire Tinies Video: Parry Gripp Medley

All tinies know the "Waffle Song", so it's no wonder Chaffro and the tinies of Raglan Shire have put together another one of their music videos featuring his songs! Of course, I like "Squirrels, Squirrels, Squirrels!" Enjoy!

Gearz Club Signage...Ooo...Spinning Gears

Made a sign for the Gearz Club in Steelhead. I'm a sucker for spinning gears and I'm glad Sheriff Fuzz likes it. If you've never been there before, you should go if only to see the fantastic floor!

Rez Day Roundup

Last year, I had a big blow-out party for my RezDay. This year, I kept things much simpler, preferring to talk and spend time with my friends. I did attend one party though, Lady Amber's Imbolc Ball in Caledon, celebrating the coming of Spring...
Pucky came inworld just for me and I did my happy dance around him as his wicker man blazed behind us...Later, Phin and I tangoed...And right before my Rez Day ended at midnight SLT, Lunar thawed out the snow in Steelhead and brought green grass and "Spring"! Yay! This has been a wonderful day. You know how I feel about simple pleasures inworld and these were all wonderful. Thank you everyone!

Happy Rez Day to Me! I'm 2!

I turn two today on my Rez Day! I am doing a happy dance to the pretty mechanical egg music box that Lunar gave me from Cannoli Capalini's shop in Babbage. It opens to reveal flowers. She makes such lovely things! Eds sent me a selection of all the cakes and goodies she has made for her patisserie so far and I think I might keel over in sugar shock. And Madcow gave me a Doom Bell avatar. Dia gave me a hilarious ThinC book based in the Wastelands called The Mutant & The Ghoul. I love it. Also, I asked a friend to do something positive for herself for my rez day. She knows what I am talking about and I'm holding her to it! This is going to be a great day!
