Happy Holiday at the CnP!



Sometimes you not only get what you need, but you get what you want. Prad, Bailey and Rrish brought my holiday wish to reality. It was wonderful. Truly wonderful. I think it had all the elements of a Crown and Pearl party, even though we were missing a few key people (Bailey Dazy – I missed you, but I hope you had wonderful time at the RL event). What makes a CnP party?

The people: I started a list back when I expressed my wish. I knew I’d forgotten some folk on that list, but it was fantastic to see them again. Dancing with some of my very favorite people!

The DJs: Always wonderful. Prad started it off, of course. *grin* Singing along to the songs. Despite the abuse. Aribeth, Rrishanna, and Bailey were all due to take the helm.
The chat: Yep, it degenerated, spun off track, was inconsequential, loving, abusive, fond, teasing, incomprehensible.
The CnP: Dressed up in its winter finery.

.
Outfits: Encouraged to dress to impress, everyone did. That was vague enough to allow all sorts of self-expression! And new looks – some avatars had make-overs!! woot!

.

The animals: You know you are at the CnP when there is some infestation of animals. Sometimes it’s squirrels, sometimes the floor vanishes and it’s fish, sometimes it’s sheep and reindeer.

.


The explosions: I confess that I had to leave before the grand finale, when all the explosions went off and the CnP was blasted back to prims, but I did see the setup begin.

.

Odd objects: There are always a few strange things rezzed and left about: walkers with headlights, flying purple bombs. Hey, look. It’s the CnP – you need to take that kind of stuff in stride.
.


Sim Full: Oh yes, almost from the get-go we hit the sim limit. 🙂 I forgot to take a picture of the map, to show all the green dots INSIDE and all the green dots lined up at the border. NEXT time we use a bigger sim. *grin*

.

Unexpected expulsions: One moment you are there, the next – poof! You were ejected. No, no one really know why, just grab a taxi and get back inside.

It was a wonderful, wonderful time. It sounded to me as if most everyone was having as much fun as I was. Of course I took a zillion pictures. I can only put half a zillion up here, but the rest are up on my Flickr account – I did try to get most everyone who was there while I ws. And yes – I DID get my holiday dance with Dale. 🙂

.

HUMONGO HUGS to Prad, Bailey and Rrish who made the effort to reconstruct the Crown and Pearl and dress it in its holiday best. You guys are fantastic! Have I mentioned that I think we should do a first day of Spring party???? *grin*

My Holiday Wish List

The holiday referenced is New Year’s Eve. My wish – to recapture a little of SL glory past. I have been thinking on how to word what I want to recapture. I realized that the “peak” SL moment typically differs from person to person. There are the oldies who say it happened in 2003 – the first moments. Then there are those who claim it was 2006. For me, obviously, it happened between July 2008 and now. *grin* And it IS all about me, let us not forget. Even my own “peak” moment does not encapsulate everything. It’s missing a lot of people who I knew then but weren’t part of the selected locale. It’s missing all of the building and learning I did for work. Most of the people that I want to be there would tell me that I’m wrong – that was NOT the peak time for that place. That is all true. But I want what I want.

I want a New Year’s Eve party at the Crown and Pearl this year. Yes, I know there is no more CnP. I know that everyone has moved on to other places, other pursuits. I know that many of the people who I think of when I think of the CnP are not even in SL anymore. Many of the people I want there were not on my Friends List nor am I on theirs. But they were there.

I want Prad and Bailey to reopen the Crown and Pearl for a holiday party. Dress-up. I want to see the people I think of as “my” regulars. I want all my other friends to come also, so they can experience a CnP moment too. I want to hear the DJs. I want a sploder. I want silliness and good humor. I want sheep. *grin* I want to see: Bails, Prad, Alann, Aribeth, Bailey (yes, there ARE two),Dark, Hell, Jellen, Mowgli, Nat, Rrish, Stoo, Landsend, Marisa, Clare, Ryker, BabyGlock, Kumi, Lucien and all the other people who used to be there but now I can’t remember their names because my brain is a sieve for things like names. But I want them all. (I’d really like all my NCI friends and my work friends and friend friends showing up as well.) And I want my New Year’s Eve day dance with Dale.

CnP Turned 2!

I love the Crown and Pearl. I love the place, the people. They throw the best parties. I wandered over the other night, feeling a bit down. BD was DJ’ing, friends were there. We all got on one chim and danced. Soon I was smiling and feeling great and having a wonderful time. So imagine what it’s like when they make an EFFORT at throwing a party.

This weekend was the 2nd anniversary celebration party. Four hours, 4 wonderful DJs: Bailey Longcloth, Aribeth Coronet, Rrishanna Regina and Bailey Dazy. Each took a different decade, starting with the 60s. Each did, as always, a fantastic job. I must say, however, that BD really got the most difficult task – the 90s. I ask you – was there ANYTHING worth hearing in the 90s??? *grin* As I typed that, I realized that one of my favorite songs is from the 90s: Rod Stewart’s “Rhythm of My Heart”. The party was going great, as to be expected. Folks changed attire with the decade. Then we hit the 80s and Honour brought out her Michael Jackson outfit. You KNOW what happened THEN. *grin* We all lined up, put on our Thriller AOs and the Crown and Pearl Dancers were born!!!

By the time we moved into the 90s, it really didn’t matter that there was no decent music worth mentioning. *grin* We were having so much fun and BD found the few good songs, and we danced on into the night.

The complete Thriller line-up and other shots are all up on Flickr.

And the Winners Are….

Hey all – don’t forget! Tonight is Cringe and Wear It!! Hope to see you all there with a transferable outfit and a sense of humor. 🙂 I even MADE an outfit to transfer to some lucky soul!

Sorry for the lack of posts – RL has been extremely busy and I have been a bit under the weather health-wise as well. 😦 I’ve been taking lots of pictures, and have lots to tell you, but unfortunately have simply not been able to write it up. And – I am going away on vacation this week. I am NOT taking my laptop. Eating the dog’s medicine last week convinced me that maybe I do indeed need to step away from the keyboard. *grin*

So come and say hi and party tonight at 6pm SLT at the C2P! Cringe and Wear It!! I have a box just for YOU!!!!!
