It was really, really nice spending time with Borealis last night (this morning)..... I have really missed him taking me around and showing me things to see and do.

[10:02] Astrid Zhangsun: you might need to lock the castle in place this time
[10:02] Astrid Zhangsun: just my opinion, of course
[10:02] Astrid Zhangsun: *kiss*[10:02] Raredread Nightfire: you might need to kiss my ass
[10:02] Raredread Nightfire: hahahahahhaha
[10:03] Astrid Zhangsun: I love you


You always know your day is going to be good when you accidentally delete your castle....

[21:04] Alyvaral Aeghin: oh great, he's already incorrigable


Strangely.........this reminds me of a Beatle's song :-)

Happy Christmas!

Christmas Greetings to everyone!
May you have a wonderful holiday!

Christmas Eve at Faerie Crossing

Julius invited those of us 'at loose ends' to spend some time at his place. It was nice to spend time dancing and talking to everyone that popped in and out.


While Aly was out I gave her a few 'guests'

[14:19] Astrid Zhangsun: haha
[14:19] Astrid Zhangsun: I cheated
[14:19] Balthier Collas: well
[14:19] Balthier Collas: ofcourse you did

[14:19] Astrid Zhangsun: Fae cheat

[14:19] Astrid Zhangsun: ohhhhhh!
[14:19] Balthier Collas: *hehe*
[14:19] Astrid Zhangsun: I have beaten you before
[14:19] Balthier Collas: eerrhhm

Passing the time with friends.....

I popped over to visit Vetherian and show him this new AO that I got. I'm not going to say who made it because it's a really good maker......but this particular one that I got is just so NOT ME.......I call it 'Girl On Quaaludes' because when I'm standing still it has me walking around in circles and playing with imaginary flying things....kind of like a kid poking at dust floating in sunbeams....... Perfect AO for a fae, I guess.

Vetherian is quite amused with my special 'battle pillow' is an actual SpellFire weapon that really packs a punch......I think the hits from it register the same as a broadsword. It's kind of hard to see the pillow in these shots though. Someone needs to have a word with the photographer......

Weapons Master (Mistress?)

Now I'll be hosting weapons training at Elf Harbor. Do you notice anything strange about this picture? haha........

Christmas Isle

Obnoxious faerie visits Christmas Isle *chuckle*.....I tried to sit on the snow globe but my skirt hit the gingerbread house..

If you haven't visited yet please do.....this will be gone come Jauary 1

Aly watching..........

It might look like we're relaxing on the sofa together.........

But we're really building.

Happy Solstice!

Though my soul may set in darkness,
It will rise again in perfect light,
I have loved the stars too fondly,
To be fearful of the night.

Pixel Dreams

My friend Taint greeted me at login with news of a wonderful sim called 'T Town'......
It's a beutifully simplistic sim filled with fields of wheat and sunflowers, and old barns to see.


Aly was gone so I couldn't resist putting the 'Hungry Snowman' in her house *chuckle*
Oh, and of course I have to document.......
She said that when she came home he scared her so bad she nearly peed her pants!
I sense a payback coming........

Feast Day of Epona

Balthier and I dancing in front of Epona's temple last year on this day,
on my beloved sim DragonHope........
we have been together for more than a year, not always partnered but always close....

The sun stands high, sharing his power with his mother earth, all living things that grow between them enjoy power and abundance. The white mare gallops across green pasture, black colt playing at her side. The young people leap and dance, while their elders lean back and soak up the suns rays. The Universe is abundant.


Freeday Dance at Faerie Crossing

It's so nice to visit with old friends again.......and dance in my pikachu slippers.

*tight hugs*

Oh! What have we here?
Lillie is going to run off with one
of your realize that, right?

Let me hug you before the dog tries to bury you or something, haha.......

Okay...might be fun to hug a scarecrow......
but my dragon is much warmer and much more comfy.......

My friend Taint IMed me saying he thought he would be a swinger........
then he send me this picture to help me scrape myself off the ceiling.......

So cool.........

I actually have a friend in RL who is a falconer.......
I tried once, just once.....but having that bird flying to me just, well, I have asthma anyway *chuckle*
and yes I know that this isn't a falcon.....


Hanging around in my sandbox *chuckle*
This is what I do when insomnia hits.......
actually I've found a way to preview the massive
amount of animations
that I have
for different projects that I do....
and not much else to do when you can't sleep.
Friends kind of get mad when you call them at 3:27 a.m.

Gibson Island

Gibson Island is the official Second Life home of Gibson Instruments.
You can get free guitars, t-shirts and more here.....
Ride the vendor, get a free guitar bag! kidding.
It just seemed like the thing to do at the time.
I can't resist stuff like this.

I also see that I'm not the only one who can't resist doing this either.

Drooling in front of the wall of guitars.......I don't get to do this in RL often but,
my neighbor is a sales rep for another guitar company and occasionally I do get to handle some very nice and very expensive guitars (not mentioning the name because I have manners).

There is Gibson furniture here also.....I am sitting on a Gibson table...

Teasing always.......

I'm sure that I would have a hard time dragging Balthier out of here...........

I love SL!

What are friends for?

This is the way my friends treat me.

I THOUGHT that my little hideaway would be a nice 'chill' spot.
Thanks, Aly!
She just doesn't want me to be lonely *chuckle*

Temple Beit Israel

Happy Channukah!

Jay, explaining to me the difference in scrolls and not believing that I've never been to a temple...

Happy Channukah Peeps!

Beth Shalom Synagogue
(I think)

Sistine Chapel

I kind of thought it might be appropriate to visit the chapel on this feast day of Our Lady....not that the sistine chapel is devoted to Her's a good place to drag a noob. I like to show them nice things, give them another view of SL........gets them out of the strip clubs, haha.

This I nabbed from a notecard:

About the Sistine Chapel Recreation
The Sistine Chapel recreation was built by Steve Taylor, of Vassar College (AV: Stan Frangible.) It was built as a proof of concept, to explore how virtual reality might be used to learn about art and architecture, by experiencing the scale, context and social environment of a real-life space.
Everything is true to scale (pretty much).
The images are from photographs, used with permission from various distributors.
It is built of more than 500 prims and more than 200 different textures.

In sync.....

A rare sight and a sight for sore eyes,
dancing with Silmarwen.

Aly Watching........

Sitting in a tree at Elf Harbor

Every time she said something her head would be buried in the
tree trunk. It was hilarious to watch.
