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 :-)

"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.
