I've been slapping those MM boards and playing
"Sit and Win".
Somebody please save me if I start camping!

Aly Watching...........

Aly: "You should see my car I got today :-)
It's got like 30 forward gears!"
Me: "Geez"
(this is SO against the Charter)
At least we weren't upside-down for a change :-)

Burning Man!

This is one of my favorite 'happenings' in SL!
So many wonderful things to fly around and experience....
I so love the creativity of the folks in SL :-)

An InWorldz Morning....

Some are saying that once InWorldz gets the bugs out
it's going to kick SL's butt. I haven't formed an opinion yet.
I wandered around for weeks in 'freebie' clothes until Aly
nagged me enough to make me go buy an outfit. I spent
enough money in SL to make me not want to leave it entirely.
And I do have a lot of friends in SL that I still want to keep up
with though most of them have decided to try InWorldz.
We'll see.....

My neice, Hailie was in a Halloween decorating contest. Here I am standing
with her daddie (big Eberhart) marveling at her handiwork. The contest isn't over
yet but as of right now she's still in the lead. I hope she wins :-)


Mai halloween costume, hehe.....

Aly watching, continued........

"Hey Astrid, wanna see the 'steampunkiest' thing I've ever built?"
I should've known what I was in for.....

Astrid: Geez, how do you know where you're going?
Alyvaral: Astrid hit escape, 'm'
Astrid: Duh-
(mouselook is a wonderful thing)

'Tis the Season!

Oh how I love Second Life in October!
There are haunted houses galore here! Such an opportunity to sample the wonderful creativity of the peeps of SL :-) Right now I'm wandering the haunted island "Cest La V" of my friend Hunter Quirina, very talented entertainer in both SL and RL.
For some reason I can't copy the slurl to this post but type "Cest La V" into your map search and it should get you there.

Builder's Brewery

Yes, I am a "Brewer of Fine Prims" -- as the group title says. Builder's Brewery is a great group to go to for all kind of building, texturing and even scripting information. They've got great classes going on too at all times of the day.

Welcome to InWorldz

Sometimes I wander around InWorldz just to see what's up there. It was kind of boring at first but lately things have been picking up. And it has it's issues just as SL does. If you are very picky about your avatar you'll find yourself getting very frustrated (see photo)....but it's better than being a puff of smoke.

yay! I'm blogging again (again)

Well *sigh* I've not done this in so long that I lost my original entry. *chuckle*
I navigated away from what I was doing and got lost :-)
For the past few months my real life has demanded my full attention and this blog among other things has had to take a back seat. I've managed to log into SL from time to time and catch up with my friends and they've still been able to contact me in other ways. Life is full of changes --
During one of my visits to SL I found a place called Circo Loon that was full of fun contraptions to ride and a lot of 'free to copy' scripted items to take home and play with.

Tree Dance at the Drum Circle

Elves don't really need an excuse to dance or sit in trees for that matter...
it was a special night to have trees at the drum circle in ElvenGlen for us to dance around....
and in which to sit.

Does this sword make my butt look big?

Pixie Thursday!

Celebrating with my pixie peeps...on the drums, of course.
Every Thursday is Pixie Day for the Faerie Crossing clan.
There's always a dance at the mushoom ring at Faerie Crossing.

Georgia Museum of Art
GMOA UNDER CONSTRUCTION On March 3, 2009, the Georgia Museum of Art broke ground on its Phase II expansion and launched GMOA on the Move, a state- and nationwide initiative of offsite programs and exhibitions. Due to construction, the museum offices are currently located in the former visual arts building on Jackson Street on UGA's North Campus. Although the galleries and shop are temporarily closed, special calendar events are still open to the public, and gift items are available from our new Web shop. Please visit the museum's virtual galleries in Second Life and view the calendar for a complete listing of GMOA on the Move events.The Georgia Museum of Art is scheduled to reopen in early 2011.

So Prokaryotic.....

I couldn't resist riding the double-helix
(it's not supposed to be a ride)

[22:09] Astrid Zhangsun: I'm standing here looking at a prokaryotic cell

[22:09] Alyvaral Aeghin: what is that?

[22:11] Astrid Zhangsun: basically it's a bacteria

[22:11] Alyvaral Aeghin: I'm guessing you're really, really bored.

Cell Terrace

A wonderful example of cellular anatomy.....
I'm going to have to explore this a lot more.
It's definitely worth a second and third look!

Aly Watching.......still

Plotting world domination, as usual........

Cutthroat Space Administration

A wonderful historical event for the Cutthroat Space Administration and for pirate history!
Pirate Space Initiative:
"Holy Crap! We're on the frigging moon!"

Oh those pirates!!

"In your face, Isle of Wyrms!"
Pirates tend to be serious competitors.

Tonight we draw from the heart fires of Pele..grand mother of life..
With hearts ablaze we dance to help the healing heart of a true friend.
As is the sun, so is the heart. As the sun waxes with each passing day, so the heart grows stronger as the pulse of the mother quickens beneath the earth in anticipation of the Spring. And the dance goes ever on and on.

We Love You, TIGGS!


I wish people would adjust the poses in their furniture.
Even the dog thinks I look wierd.
And, who turned on that dratted weather machine?
Bad attitude today.
Need rum.
Danged pirates stole my rum.

Exploring with my daughter Shell :-)

Blackfire pays a visit

Blackfire seems to think that the pirates are behind this. Well, I did have one in my class lastnight. And one of them did put me in a bottle right before class........hmmm............


Someone....I can't be sure who....but someone put a pirate flag on top of my asteroid at Elf Harbor. I'm thinking it was Alyvaral, of course. Wouldn't have anything to do with the 20 cats I put in her office, the alien on her roof or the hungry snowman in her living room. No.
Well I naturally would blame it on the pirates, but they don't know that my asteroid is up here. Well now they do. Damn, haha. I let the cat out of the bag.

Winter Warmers

Chasing the winter away with my friends from The Faery Crossing at the Plucked Wing Tavern. I've learned that faeries will think of any excuse to have a party, haha.

Best Wishes!!!

Today after deliberate consideration Elvenshire chose to withdraw from the fantasy continent of Elf Circle, a difficult and necessary decision to make.
I have known Magnus and Raredread for a very long time and they are both very, very fine people. This decision was neither rash or illogical. It simply was the right thing to do.
All of my love and best wishes for Elvenshire!
Dancing with my bud :-)

Happy Anniversary!

Trying out the new poseball with Balthier.

It's been one year and a happy one at that!
Happy Anniversary,
what a crazy pair we are!


Me and Aly trying out a poseball :-)
It's called 'Omega Embrace'
and be careful where you put it *chuckle*

"It's a wonderful world of ridiculous things but it's nothing so rare as the love that it brings in the silence of a smile that understands." -- Patty Griffin
TIGGS and I were such an unlikely pair. We got off with such a rocky start, I didn't like her at all, I thought she was so......well, not worth mentioning. Once I really got to know her I saw that even though we were polar opposites in many ways, we were also very much alike and so became fast friends. She gave me much support in many ways and I will always appreciate this.
I was sorry to see her sim go. I loved visiting her there and spent many hours exploring or just sitting. It was always so much fun popping in on her and playing pranks on her. My favorite thing to do was to have her tp me and showing up naked. We would always be in voice and she would laugh and say "Astrid you are naked." Of course I would argue that I was fully clothed on my screen with her insisting that I was naked on her's, even providing the supporting evidence of a snapshot.
I eagerly await her return to SL. She is sorely missed. And I love her.
