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!

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!

Free Bird

Free Bird

When I’m struggling to find something to write about for a blog post I like to get on YouTube and watch a few vintage videos and listen to some great music that delivers me back to another time and place! I came across this video and as I watched it I felt like I was there, on that early July day in Oakland, California in 1977, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s on stage and they’re about to do ‘Free Bird’. There’s just something about this one that makes me long for something, I’m not even sure what, since I was pretty young when this was filmed! I probably didn’t even know what a ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd’ was back then, but at this point in my life, this video takes me back. It doesn’t make me want to go back to that time in my life, the last thing I’d ever want is to have to go through my teenage years and twenties again! Maybe it makes me wish my life was different at that time. This was filmed almost 40 years ago, hard to believe really! I don’t know how that many years can go by, but still feel like it was yesterday!

I’ll admit that I do struggle with a fantasy themed photo. I love all the fantasy items in Second Life, and I know that the term ‘fantasy’ can mean whatever I want to interpret it as, but I find it so hard! When I put these beautiful Bento Fairy Wings from lassitude & ennui on, I almost felt fairy-like in them. They have lovely detail and come in six gorgeous colours, each colour has gold and silver trim. The animation runs automatically, but you do need the bento compatible viewer, which Firestorm and the official Second Life viewer both are. These are available at the current round of We Love RolePlay, which runs until the end of the month.

You can only see the top of the cute M105 hair from .:CHEVEUX:., here, but it’s a short windswept style that looks so cute! It’s available at the current round of SaNaRaE, which runs until March 18.

The Colette Thong in ivory is from /erratic/.

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, and the mesh feet and Bento mesh hands from SLink.

This lovely pose is one of the three poses in the ‘falling’ pack from Serendipity.

Blog Post #598 (I can’t think of anything better)

Blog Post #598 (I can't think of anything better)

And now for something on the lighter side! With all the bad stuff that goes on in the world, a person can only take so much, so I thought today I’d look at something a little less serious than politics, hate, war, and famine! It wouldn’t take much to be a lighter topic than those!! So, since I listen to music most of the time, I thought it apt to have a look at some really odd names for songs! There’s all kinds of weird songs out there, some of them that have been around a long time, and I never thought anything odd about it until I said it out loud! I mean, who wants to tell everyone that, ‘I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts’? It doesn’t make sense, even in today’s world of euphemisms! That’s the song I first thought of to make me wonder about this topic! There’s not many genres of music I don’t like, so I’ve got a wide variety of music that I enjoy, depending on my mood of the moment. When I was thinking about odd song titles I did a quick search and found lots of lists, and as I went down the lists I realized that quite a few songs are country! I enjoy country music, mostly the older stuff, the new doesn’t even resemble country music, IMO, but some of the song titles may not make sense to some, but others may think it’s completely logical. Since I’m a farm girl, a song called ‘She Thinks My Tractors Sexy’ makes complete sense! Or, ‘Did I shave My Legs For This’ is a question I’m sure many women have asked themselves at some point in their life! If you’ve ever looked at a Bob Dylan album from the 60’s you’ll see lots of titles that don’t make a whole lot of sense, but I think there’s a logical explanation for that. I have no proof, but I would think some of them may have been written while under the influence of…um…..something other than true inspiration! Don’t think I’m picking on Bob Dylan, I’m not…I’m a huge fan! I have a lot of his CD’s and every now and then take one out to play. But, some of the song titles, and lyrics too if you listen for them, are down right odd! Case in point, ‘It takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry’, is one that makes me go ‘Hmm’, along with ‘Rainy Day Women #12 & 35’! I have to admit that naming anything is a tough thing to do, I know if you look back at my 597 blog posts, you’ll see some really lame titles! I understand the dilemma, after awhile it’s hard to think of a title that’s different than others, and actually makes sense to the readers! As I write this, I have yet to enter a name for this post, mainly because I can’t think of anything good!!

I always have mixed feelings when a new month starts! I look back at the past month and wonder where it went, but I look ahead to the new group gifts that will be released in the coming days! I’m a member of the [KoKoLoReS] VIP group, so I always look forward to the group gift released early in the new month. For March, the Manon Hair is the gift, and it comes with a HUD of six two-tone colours, all very different! I’ve fallen in love with this pink/grey combination! There’s a fee to join the VIP group, but it’s well worth it, with a new gift released every month, faithfully!

I’m sure everyone is trying to TP to the new round of Collabor88, I haven’t tried yet, I don’t have the patience for it! But, I can give you a look at the new release from Stories&Co. by Flowey, available at C88, when you can manage to get in! I’m wearing the Soft Bra & Briefs here and they’re so pretty! I’ve always been the girl next door, who loves the simple yet sexy look! Yes, simple can be sexy! They both come in ten colours, five basic and five soft spring tones!

My basic body consists of 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 Kitten feet from SLink.

I’m sitting on the Mid Century bed from Dutchie.

I’m using a pose from !bang poses.

On The Beach

On The Beach

A few nights ago I sat down with a bowl of popcorn, dimmed the lights, and enjoyed a movie. I love old black and white movies, the ones with the timeless actors and a story I can get lost in. I had a hard time choosing what to watch, but ultimately I chose the classic, On the Beach, starring Gregory Peck(naturally) and Ava Gardner! I’d read the book and seen parts of the movie when it’s been on TV, but it was nice to sit and watch it fully. I’m sure if it was made today, there’d be a sequel, or three. I think zombies would make an appearance in it, too! Oh, and of course there’d be an explosion, the movies today have to have explosions!! But, all it had was incredible acting and a story that is as relevant today as it was back in 1959. I know I’m probably missing some really good films by not watching new releases, but I just can’t resist a movie that’s full of history! Each old movie is a snapshot of what life was like in the year it was made! I’ll give the new ones a few decades, then I can decide if I want to watch it, of course, by then I’ll probably be in the old folks home and not be able to pick what I want to watch! 🙂

I’m enjoying a lovely sunset at Sol Farm here, and it’s a sim well worth visiting! I’m dressed casual for my day of sight seeing, going to the Farmer’s Market, and strolling among the farm animals. I’m sporting the newly released Cloud Necklace from [MYNX] for the occasion. It comes in gold, silver, and rose gold and is 100% mesh. It’s available now at the March round of The Chapter Four. Also from [MYNX] is the Ripped Jeans. I’m wearing the mediuum tone and they’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, TMP, and Tonic mesh bodies! The jeans are at the [MYNX] main store.

Also at The Chapter Four, is the Fo Shizzle sets of poses from Le Poppycock. There’s two packs for the women(this one is from the ‘B’ pack), both with six poses, plus there’s also a new couple’s pose to grab while you’re there!

The Prairie Sandals are a fairly recent release from Slipper Originals! It’s not sandal weather in real life for me, yet, but it’s nice free my feet from socks and shoes and get some sunshine on my toes! At least virtually, anyway! The fatpack includes sixteen colours and five metal options and has numerous areas to customize!

The pretty eye make up I have on is one of the nine colours in the Serenity Shadows pack from Veechi! It’s compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and Logo mesh heads and also has system layers for the classic avatars!

The Deep V Neck Tee is a pretty top from Tres Blah. This is the nude version and it’s HUD driven with twelve colours to choose from for the bra, or you can go braless!! Your choice!

The YAE hair is from Argrace! I found it tucked away in the back of the store, so it’s not new…..but I love it! The scarf is HUD driven with six colours, but there’s also different designs available separately.

I don’t wear piercings often, but I like the nice simple Circle Nose Stud from Amala! It’s HUD driven with four metals to choose from.

My eyes are the Omega compatible Steampunk Eyes from .ARISE..

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 flat feet from SLink.
