It’s Almost TIME!!!!!!

Honour, creative geniusTomorrow!!! Tomorrow Honour unveils her new product line. It is fantastic, humerous, and, I believe, something new under the sun. My new friend Faust was doing last minute testing and let me watch. 🙂 Like I gave anyone a chance to keep me out of the testing process. I was literally screaming with laughter at some of it.

So be there bright and early tomorrow to get your own……. *grin*……. did you think I would slip NOW??? I’ve kept this secret for four months!!! Be sure to watch Honour’s blog for the big launch announcement on Wednesday, July 1!!

Yeah, I am going to try to sneak in for that first show for sure. LOL. /me schedules a meeting on my work calendar for 11am SLT.

Chestnut’s Magic Build

Chestnut transformed Thornbridge into a magical wonderland.

Chestnut transformed Thornbridge into a magical wonderland.


flowers everywhereChestnut made the most incredible build for my rez day party. Gorgeous. Magical. FULL of flowers (because I really like flowers). Beautiful trees too (Chestnut, unlike SOME of us (me) KNOWS how to make a tree). Colors and flowers and lights and flowers and a moon and more flowers. Did I mention casey and augustthat there were lots of FLOWERS??? She turned Thornbridge into the sort of fantasy that makes SL so special. It was breathtakingly wonderful and happy and light-hearted and magical. I guess, really, the only word that truly describes it is “neat”. LOL. Okay – there is someone now reading this and blushing like crazy. The rest of us are laughing. Ches unveiled the build to a friend and asked for feedback. *grin* The verdict? “Neat.” /me rolls eyes and starts laughing again. Ah Chestnut – it was so far beyond neat – it was everything I could have hoped or wanted. I loved it. Every single prim. I don’t know how long you can leave Thornbridge like that, but we need to go back and picnic and meditate and chase butterflies and stretch out on a blanket and simply revel in the beauty.

Kyle and CalliMy rez day party was fantastic. The build, as I said, was neat. 🙂 No – you will NEVER live that down. But Chestnut had the best possible music as well: Kyle Beltran. I LOVE Kyle. I have posted about him before here. He puts on a fantastic show. He sings, plays the piano, covers other people’s songs as well as his own compositions. Chadd and ShaleKyle is so witty and articulate and funny. We were laughing the entire time. I love Kyle’s shows; I was delighted at how many of my friends were IM’ing me to tell me that they, too thought he was great. That even though they really needed to log, they couldn’t because they didn’t want to stop listening to Kyle. If you’ve never heard Kyle – remedy that. He has CDs for sale, performs regularly in SL and is a wonderful talent. Thank you SO much, Kyle, for agreeing to perfom. I had a wonderful, wonderful time listening and laughing with you. *hugs*

Thank you to all my friends who were there to help make the party special. I was so touched and honored that you came. I love the work I do in virtual worlds. I love the mental stimulation, the challenges, throwing myself under the bus again and again. But mostly – I love you. I love laughing and Nat and Helltalking and sharing our lives. I know that for so many of you it was an effort to be there. Natalya and Hell – you are amazing. Staying up til 2am your time to come party with me. You are wonderful. I know at least 2 of you were SUPPOSED to be working. *grin* So I won’t mention your names, but you know who you are and so do I. To all of you – thank you and thank you again. Seeing you and partying with you was the best rez day present I could have. *hugs* to you all.

BaileyI took a million pictures. Okay, about 60, I suppose I DO tend to exaggerate on occasion. *grin* They are up on Flickr, of course. I am including several of them here as well. This way you can see the gorgeous build, and my wonderful friends. Hell also took pictures. He has a wonderful one – imaginative angle, framing. Check it out. That is how SL photography SHOULD be done. Thank you, Hell!

You found the best entertainment. You even put out food!!!! *grin* yummy! I think this may have been one of the most special, incredible things anyone has ever done for me. Thank you. It was perfect. I love it. I love you. I am so glad that we are friends.

Oura did me the great compliment of wearing my dancing in my chains ribbons I gave Oura a copy of my “dancing in my chains” ribbons and she did me the great compliment and honor of wearing them. And Calli, beautiful Calli. It was SUPPOSED to be all about ME. ME = Ahuva!!!!! LOL. Your dress was stupendous. Breathtaking. We all inspected the information and did a search on the creator. *grin* We will all be Calli-wannabees.
Gorgeous Calli

After party relaxationOf course, after the party, I had to relax and go over the whole thing again. 🙂 So I stretched out on my carpet, pose courtesy of the talented Bailey Longcloth, wearing my new teddy bear slippers from zazek, and discussed the party, art, life and SL with Oura and Calli. All in all – a perfect perfect night.

Post party party

Beam Me Up!

Ahuva's Teleporter
Beam me down, too. And across! *grin* I woke up this morning thinking “teleport system”. I have been wanting one since I was at my friend’s house this winter and saw hers. She owns a whole sim, and could teleport all over. She modeled the device to resemble the physical layout of her sim. I was totally impressed and envious. I tried to hire someone to do the same for me. He left SL and has never returned. LOL. Sheesh – am I THAT difficult an employer?????

Anyway, this morning I woke up and I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted. I thought “I can DO this”. Dark and Honour and Shenlei and Hell have all taught me to torture and shape prims. I didn’t want anything complicated. I had a vision. I had a script I used for work. So I got up, logged in, headed to Frenis, the ducks and the beach and began shaping a prim. *grin* It was great. I did what I wanted. Learned a bit. Built my transporter. Chadd dropped in just as I finished and helped me test it. It works!!!! I did have one typo which I fixed. There is something I want to add to it as well, but that is a “bell and whistle” as the saying goes. I do have one question about something, but I think I KNOW the answer – I just need one of my script masters to come around so I can confirm my theory. Or learn the real answer.

Here is Ahuva’s teleporter. Each color takes you to a different location on my property: the pool, the beach, the back yard, the front door. There is a teleporter at each of those locations, although some are less easy to find than others. *grin* I have my reasons. But I did it. A great way to start my second year in SL. Building, scripting, doing it myself.

I am One

*GRIN* Happy Rez day to ME!!!! I am one. What a great year it’s been. But I have SO many ideas for this next year – LOOK OUT!!!! Classic paintings/metaphors revisited and revised. A GREAT party idea – check those inboxes for your invites! Mixing business and pleasure to profit both. Oh yeah – we will rock this year too!

I am One

Goodbye Down Under???

I wish this were a hoax. I really hope this will turn out to be a hoax. My Plurk buddies are all posting links to Australian news sources claiming that Australia will ban/block access to SL and other games. (Let’s not get side-tracked on the “other games” part of that sentence, okay??? That is the terminology the articles are using.)

This stinks. Big time. I chatted with a friend of mine who lived in Australia for 18 months on corporate assignment. He assures me that Aussies love their games as much as anyone. I asked if they would fight this. He said he thought it depended on how easy it was going to be to circumvent the blocks. But….. in matters such as these….. I think I would become a radical. Protest, write letters, march. Do whatever to get this overturned. Get your laws out of my personal PRIVATE behavior.

Taken from the online Sidney Morning Herald:

This means that even Australians who are aged above 15 and want to obtain the adult-level games online will be unable to do so. . It will undoubtedly raise the ire of gamers, the average age of which is 30 in Australia, according to research commissioned by the Interactive Entertainment Association of Australia.

Taken from the online Inquisitor:

censorship

And this from the online Herald Sun:

AUSTRALIA will join China in implementing mandatory censoring of the internet under plans put forward by the Federal Government.

The revelations emerge as US tech giants Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, and a coalition of human rights and other groups unveiled a code of conduct aimed at safeguarding online freedom of speech and privacy.

The government has declared it will not let internet users opt out of the proposed national internet filter.

Getting Comfy

Oh, yeah, Opensim is starting to feel more like home. *grin* Major hugs and thanks to Natalya! And to Dz too!

Crown And Pearl Redux

Crown and Pearl ReduxPerhaps “redux” is unfair. After all, CnP has been running quite merrily and successfully without me. (OMG – how can that BE????? Isn’t EVERYTHING all about ME?? Have I – gasp – been wrong????) But for me – I haven’t been there in so long. So when I found myself back there partying with friends twice in three days, I was so happy. There are not enough hours in the day for me to do everything I want to do. Not in SL. Not in RL.

Ladies GlowI logged in one Thursday afternoon and saw that my good buddy HellSpawned was DJ’ing. To my great delight, I actually had time to head over there. Hell was DJ’ing, Natalya was there, plus Kumi, Kalthea, Dancien, Ryker, Dion, mainit, Eliza and more. It was wonderful. Even if Hell and I do NOT have the same taste in music. *grin* I love Kumi’s av. I don’t think I’ve ever written about it specifically, but whenever I see Kumi I smile. Don’t you?

Starting to fill up the dance floorTwo days later I logged in and saw that Rrishanna was DJ’ing. Now I LOVE Rrish’s sets!!! She plays the best music. It was the weekend. I had new hair, new boots. (Does that summarize SL or what???) I had on my tattoo. I was psyched for partying and seeing friends. So I headed right over. So much of the “old” gang was there!!! Sheep at the CnP Lucien, Prad, Bailey, Ryker, JohnR, Alann. More kept arriving. It was a blast. The same crazy chat, totally off-the-wall connections. Of course, being the CnP, there were sheep as well. *grin* The only problem with the “old” crowd is that so many of them are from a different, EARLIER time zone. So by the time Dale tp’d in to join us, they were all logging and going to sleep (party poopers!!!!). Rrish and Prad It was left to us USA’ers to close down the club – me, Dale and Rrish! What fun! I need to get back there more often. Come and join me – so that when the UK goes to bed, we can still rock the place!
