Me? A Grinch?

Me?  A Grinch?

They would feast on Who-pudding, and rare Who-roast beast.
Which was something the Grinch couldn’t stand in the least!
And THEN They’d do something He liked least of all!
Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small,
Would stand close together, with Christmas bells ringing.
They’d stand hand-in-hand. And the Whos would start singing!
They’d sing! And they’d sing! And they’d SING!
SING! SING! SING!
And the more the Grinch thought of this Who ChristmasSing,
The more the Grinch thought, “I must stop this whole thing!”
“Why, for fifty-three years I’ve put up with it now!”
“I MUST stop this Christmas from coming! But HOW?”

from ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ by ~Dr. Seuss~

To decorate or not to decorate! Every year I think about the upcoming festive season and ponder whether to decorate the house, in real life and also in Second Life. I usually opt not to in real life, I used to but found out that usually it’s just kind of sad when the time comes to take it all down. So, to avoid those emotions I just don’t bother decorating. Second Life is usually different for me though, all the great new seasonal releases are out and it’s always fun for me to shop and then get all the warm fuzzy feelings while decorating. I haven’t done it yet, I had started to set up a pretty skybox with a beautiful snowy view out the windows, but my heart just wasn’t in it. I’ve always been accused of being a ‘bah humbug’ type of person, even though inside I did feel some form of holiday excitement, but this year I have absolutely no Christmas spirit in me, at all. I’m not sure if it’s going to come, and really, it’s OK either way, but it’s hard to go through the motions with family members, when it’s not there. I guess it’ll just reinforce their belief that I’m a grinch at heart. But it’s OK…..I think every family needs one. 🙂

Today, I’m featuring a new release and completely free hunt item from Slipper Originals for the Women Only Hunt 4, which started today and runs until the end of the month. The adorable ‘Snowgirl Necklace’ is all yours once you find the snowflake hidden somewhere in the SO main store! The hunt is HUD based, which means once you attach the HUD, you can get yours here, you have all the information you need to move smoothly to all of the participating stores. If you think you need a little bit of help to find all the snowflakes the Flair For Events website has a list of all the hints, plus all the information you might need!

This is the ‘SAKAYA’ hair from Argrace.

This is a good close up of the beautiful ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. It’s looking lovely on the ‘Lilo’ mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 9 options from the ‘Romy’ set of eye shadows from Veechi.
My eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

The pose I’m using is from the ‘liza’ set from Serendipity.

  1. I know what you mean about taking down those decorations, Liz. I get someone else to do that, and while they are doing so, I go out *laughs*
