Deer in the Headlights

Deer in the Headlights

Today, I’m going to tell a story that goes back to my truck driving days! I’ve been a little bit melancholy lately and have been thinking about my years on the road. It’s a story that starts in Houston, Texas when I was parked in a truck stop overnight and my truck got hit while I slept. Needless to say I woke up and the matter got dealt with. The truck went in to a shop for body work to get it driveable for my trip back to Canada. I make it back and the truck goes in to get work fixed. I’m out and on the road again in a couple days, this time heading to California! I leave head office, happy to be back on the road and after a few hours I come to the Canada/US border. While parked there doing my paperwork, my truck is backed in to! A guy hauling cattle backed up and pushed my grill in pretty good. So, instead of continuing on to California, I’m to wait at the border for a truck coming north and we would trade trailers and I’d come back to head office, again for body work! I’d slept most of the afternoon while waiting for the other driver and when we switched trailers it was late evening, but I was on my way back north. About an hour in to the drive back, it’s fully dark now, I round a curve in the mountains and right in front of me is three elk crossing the road!! I jam on the breaks, but with a full load of canned tomato sauce in the trailer, there’s no chance of stopping! The first one makes it across the road, but I end up hitting the other two! It takes out both of my headlights immediately and I’m plunged in to darkness, but I get the truck pulled over on the tiny shoulder of the road and stopped! With my hazard lights flashing, I get out of the truck, crying of course(typical me!), and I’m met by a fellow truck driver who had been following me. He helped me out, leading me to a place where I could drop the trailer and then park at the truck stop for the night! So, it all turned out okay, I got back to head office and the truck back in for repairs, but after having three accidents in a week, I decided I needed a break!

I was looking at this picture, thinking about a story to go with it and with the bright light shining in my eyes, the title popped into my head. Then I sat for five minutes, recounting that period of time. I felt terrible about hitting the elk, I cry easily and believe me, I shed many tears for them on my trip back.

So, on a happier note, lets look at my attire, today! I’ll begin with the Jin hair from [KoKoLoReS], it’s one of my favourites, so anytime I think I need a bit of an attitude this is my hair of choice! This is from HUD 1, which contains 30 textures.

I was one of the lucky ones on the first day of uber! Why, you ask? I made it in to the new round of uber and man, did I have fun! I shopped with all the rabid uber fans, and got some very nice things! I could not resist the Swear Dita Denim Jeans from Lapointe & Bastchild Designs! They beckoned me! They’re compatible with the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies, plus the classic avatars! Then I take a trip over to their main store and see one of the group gifts is a HUD with more colours for the laces on these jeans! I was amazed to see the group is free to join, so I joined up and grabbed those laces, along with the other group gifts! uber is super difficult to get in to, but there’s a nearby sim to cam shop from!

Also at this round of uber! The Delia Bra, black is from [Azuchi]! I’m so thrilled with a leather bra, that I didn’t bother putting a top over it! 😛

I also grabbed the Adored Trainers from [Vale Koer], while I was at uber! The leathery goodness was just to much to pass up! I decided on the fatpack, with 13 areas to customize with 35 colours, how could I not get it? Now, to master the HUD!

The Layla Collar is with the Layla Dress from AGATA mode, and available at Kustom 9! I have the dress on in the previous post, if you want to have a look!

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Vista Bento Hands from Vista Animations, and the high feet from SLink.

I’m using a pose from -slouch-poses, which is no longer available! I still get a little choked up when I think about it!

And, I’m in one of the buildings at the Hazardous sim! I spend time there, peacefully reflecting on life and listening to their music stream! It’s very peaceful!

Hotel? Trivago!

Hotel? Trivago!

I’ve been thinking, of all the people I see on TV, why is it I like the Trivago guy the best? There certainly are better looking men on TV, but there’s just something about him! Yes, he hasn’t shaved in a couple of days, he’s wearing his cleanest dirty clothes, and he does look kind of tired, but that doesn’t detract from him! I actually think it all adds to his appeal! He’s the guy you could sit around on a Sunday morning, in sweats and a wrinkled T-shirt, and feel perfectly comfortable. If you happen to have a bad hair day, he doesn’t care, he probably prefers you with bad hair! And does he expect you to shave your legs every single day? Nope, he doesn’t mind that bristly feel! The perfectly coiffed and stylish man is highly overrated, I like someone who’s just happy being alive and can appreciate the little things in life, like a woman with bad hair, wrinkled clothes, and a few laugh lines on her face! I mean, nothing proves a persons happiness like laugh lines! 😀

Every now and then I like to wear something completely out of my comfort zone! This outfit does the trick! The little tiny suit that cover what needs covering, and the completely transparent dress over it, makes me feel a little bit exposed, which is odd, because I’ve been nearly nude for photographs and not felt this naked! The ‘Shun’ outfit, made up of boots, suit, and dress from R2 fashion, is available now at Collabor88, it’s available as separates, it fits the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and comes in five colours.

The Arwen hair from Mina Hair is one of my new favourites! This is from the essentials pack and it’s available at the ULTRA Event, which runs until April 15.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Provocatrice B’ pack of poses from Le Poppycock! The pose set comes with the gun needed for the pose, but I’ve opted for the Piyo Piyo Gun from *BOOM* Clothing which is from a previous round of The Arcade!

My whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo wearing the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Plus, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, including the feet, and the Vista Bento Hands from Vista Animations.

I dropped in at INSILICO for these pictures!

Universal Language

Universal Language

“ᎭᏢ ᏙᏯ ᎤᎾᏨᏍᏗ ᏱᎩ”
“Missä on vessa?”
“厕所在哪里?”
“Hvor er toilettet?”
“शौचालय कता छ?”
“ห้องน้ำอยู่ไหน”
“Wo ist die toilette?”

It doesn’t matter what language you speak, this pose is the universal language asking, “Where’s the bathroom?”! As for a reply? Just point a finger in the right direction!

When I was given this pose by Green Adder from IMMERSIV, he didn’t think I would do a post with it! Oh, but I enjoy a challenge! I told him that if there’s anyone who can’t relate to this scenario, they have to be an alien! 😀 I wanted some people around that I could ask for directions, but Cedar Creek Township was quiet and no one was around to help me! Luckily, there’s a diner on the corner that I may be able to find a public washroom at!

I consider myself an upper class shopper here, with my top of the line outfit all fitting and looking perfect! The Brooke Suede Jacket is from RealEvil Industries. In all honesty, I could go to the main store and buy every fat pack in there, and look incredible in every one! Oh…..I think I’ve already done that! 🙂 The jacket has the tank under it, HUD driven with lots of colour options for the tank and metals.

The Leather Skinny Pants,black fit like a glove!! They’re from Maitreya.

The lovely Tabatha Heels are from Ingenue!

The Boys & Girls 76, darks hair is from Dura Hair.

The Octavia Necklace is from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery.

As always, my whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo wearing the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Vista Bento Hands from Vista Animations, and the high feet from SLink.

The cow print handbag is from Shine Creations, but I couldn’t find it anywhere in market place on inworld, so it may not be available at this time. The shopping bags are from Anachron and Sn@tch. Just purchase an item from either them and you too can have a shopping bag like these! 😛

I found a fairly extensive listing of how to say ‘Where is the bathroom(toilet)?” in different languages here.

Distracted?

Distracted?

I’m an introvert, so it’s not surprising when I say that I truly enjoy an evening at home with a movie and a bowl of popcorn. Yesterday, I planned a movie night and looked forward to it most of the day. So I finished up my work for the day, had my shower, and got the popcorn stuff all out and ready to start my evening. Well, this is where it went a bit sideways! I gave up my air popper last year, in favour of one of the plug in types that has the element on the bottom, the little stirring thingy, and the lid that doubles as a bowl when it’s finished. I had it heating nicely, the butter was melting, and so, with a few minutes to spare decided to check my email on my phone. I’m leaning on the counter top and get completely engrossed in what I’m reading, and before I know it, something rolls past me and onto the floor with a thump! I look down, see the popcorn maker’s dome on the floor, and panic! I drop the phone, the dogs are rushing towards me knowing there’s edible things on the floor, and I stare at the lidless popcorn maker, still popping merrily, spewing hot popcorn everywhere! I unplug it and as the popping slows I look at the mess! The floor was covered, the counter top was covered, the dishwater in the sink had popcorn on top of the suds, and my popcorn bowl was empty! I stood for a second, looking at the mess, my big dog munching happily and the little dog staring at me, wondering why there wasn’t any butter on it! I got my popcorn bowl and gathered all that I could salvage into it, then got to work sweeping. I carried on with my plans, I’d chosen a Gregory Peck film called ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’, which is more relevant today than it was when it was made, and ate my half filled bowl of popcorn. I did learn something out of the fiasco! No matter what you’re doing……don’t do it while distracted! I could have put an eye out with all that flying popcorn!

I’m lovin’ the Luka hair from [KoKoLoReS]!! Luka is a new release exclusive to the March round of Hair O Logy, which runs until March 30. There’s three colour packs to choose from, each containing thirty colours! This is one of the options from HUD 1.

As you all probably know, the Skin Fair is on right now, and I can’t believe I haven’t been there yet! But, I do know that Veechi is there, with four new shapes for the Catwa and Lelutka bento mesh heads, plus, the Mag Shadow! Of which I’m wearing one of the nine colours in the pack. The Mag Shadow is compatible with the Logo, Catwa, and Lelutka mesh heads, plus the classic avatars.

The ‘In the Shadows’ tattoo may be an older release from Pimp My Sh!t, but it’s one of the great ones! It’s my go-to tattoo when I just want a little bit of coverage, and when it includes trees and birds, how can I resist?

The March edition of The Chapter Four is still going, and the Fo Shizzle pose packs from Le Poppycock are there! I’m using a couple of the poses from the ‘A’ pack. They have some attitude, which even I like to have, now and then!

This gorgeous face is courtesy of Sinful Curves Skins! The Alexa skin in honey tone, is my all time favourite skin!!

I braved the crowds of the first day of Kustom 9 to score the Jana Jeans from !APHORISM!. I don’t even question getting the fatpack any more when it comes to buying from !APHORISM!, it’s a no brainer, really!

I haven’t been to this round of The Arcade much, but I did manage to get the Writer’s Boots, rare, from the Old Boots gacha set from katatonik.

The Starry Choker, Leather is from Bokeh..

The Tank Top from Maitreya is so versatile! The tank comes with two options, one for with pants, and one for without!

I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo, Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the Dynamic Hands from SLink.

I had a lot of fun down at Asphyxiation Point for these pictures! Lots of really nice people there, and some great locations for pictures!

Coming Soon to a Theater Near You!

Coming Soon to a Theater Near You!

Lizara Wintercroft Tomb Raider: The Temple of the Green Adder

“This movie has it all, a great story, non stop action, and a lead character with really big….guns!”
~Stu Pidasso, Rolling Stone~

“One of the years best, a completely engrossing story with the perfect villain! Filmed in spectacular locations with breathtaking views of some incredible twin peaks!”
~Mike Hunt, Out of Touch~

“This one kept me on the edge of my seat, Lizara is completely titillating!”
~Richard Dyck, The Saturday Evening Pole~

I don’t think I have to tell you that this isn’t a real movie!! 🙂 I do have to admit, though, that I am the luckiest girl in all of Second Life! Once Green Adder of IMMERSIV gets an idea in his head, he can’t stop thinking about it! He has created this temple for me to portray Lara Croft, and I had a lot of fun, with some mild frustration, setting this up! Thank you, Green!♥ The pose I used here is available in the Happiness pose pack, which is available in the IMMERSIV main store or on Market Place, the temple isn’t available for purchase, unfortunately!

The Killer Outfit from Le Forme is perfect for this role. It can be found at the current round of WE LOVE ROLEPLAY, which runs until the end of the month. It’s a complete outfit including the top, pants, panties, and gun. This is with brown pants, but it’s all HUD driven with colour changes for the top, panties, and gun straps. It’s compatible with the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

The Southern Wind hair is from Tableau Vivant from the Editorial Hair gacha set.

The mesh boots in sand are from :Enna:.

I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I’ve updated my SLink hands to the new Dynamic Bento hands from SLink, which are incredible. And, as always, I have the Lara mesh body from Maitreya on!
