What's in Your Bag?

I decided to play nice and do the latest blogger challenge. For anyone who does not know about the challenge, you have to dump everything from your purse, no cleaning, and take a picture of it. Then, you have to bullet point the contents of your purse.

So, with no further adieu, here we go:

- Two necklaces, probably discarded to the purse after wearing them to some sort of gathering and getting tired of them hanging around my neck.

-A pack of mostly full Five gum. The green kind. Yum. (Plus, I have bad breath paranoia.)

-Two credit cards, because one is never enough.

-Two lip glosses. One is cheapy Wal-mart gloss that looks good for general occasions. The other is my fancier Victoria Secret lip gloss that tastes like peaches. (I really love that one.)

-Three receipts, which I don't know why I have. I never save receipts.

-A lonely dime.

-A fortune from a fortune cookie which reads, "You have at your command the wisdom of the ages (in bed)." You always have to add "in bed" to the end.

-A slew of gift certificates for Chilies and AMC theaters.

-Some gift cards I really should use, to various places including Old Navy and Victoria Secret.

-Two rather sad pens for signing the tab on my rediculous credit purchases.

-Two movie stubs. They have been in there forever! One is from the Dark Knight!

And, that's my purse. I was kinda surprised that little purse could hold so much. I was also surprised that it was not messier. Usually my purse is kinda messy. Thanks for joining me in this journey into my purse. Hope you enjoyed!

Pointed Out

I had a rather odd experience the other day. I was milling about Armidi, window shopping, and doing some general people watching, when I noticed an avi following me. Not only was he following me, but he was also pointing at me. Well, needless to say, I was a bit weirded.

I decided to talk to this guy. My genius opening line was, "Are you following me?" He responded with "not particularly." I questioned his motives for the pointing and was told that he was bored and none of his friends were online.

He then proceed to point to things and tell me I should buy them. (Including a pair of men's swim trunks, which we later agreed I would have little use for.) I laughed, he did have good taste, but I didn't intend to spend any money. (And, really don't need any encouragement in Armidi, I pretty much drop 1000l just looking at the place.) Then he requested that I "carry on as usual."

From there we parted ways. I wished him luck pointing at the unsuspecting clientel of Armidi, chuckling to myself thinking of those who would be less understanding than I. I wonder if he is still there, pointing to his latest victim.

But... I Can't See Out!!!

I was walking around my cottage the other day and I came to an unfortunate conclusion.

I am really freaking tiny. (I can't even see out the window in my door!)

I blame the world for being too big. I think my size is perfectly acceptable.

The End.

Vote, Vote, Vote!

Come on, you know Bone is the hottest avatar on the grid. Not only is he insanely attractive, he's also smart, stylish, talented and funny. Is there a more complete package than Bone? I say no! (And you know it's true!)

You know you need to vote for him.

If there are any lingering doubts, I submit the following image for clarification:

No denial, now! Go vote Bone!

The One Where Sehra is Smiley

Yeah. I know. That is the one and only Bone Mosten. I do not kid.

You may be thinking, "Wow, how did Sehra manage to lure the hottest avatar in SL to her cottage?"

Or, "Gee, isn't Bone an amazing example of the male gender!"

Or even, "Hey, who left the Windlight blizzard setting on when deciding to take this picture?"

Unfortunately, I can only attest to the veracity of the second statement. (It is incredibly true! Funny, cute, smart... must I go on?) The other two are still a mystery to me.

All I really know is that somehow I have managed to tie down SL's most eligible bachelor, and that kinda makes me smile. A lot.

A day or so ago the climate changes in Bluebonnet and it got all SNOWY! And, that means that I got all excited! I love snow! I have such plans for my snowy retreat! It will have lights and garlands and other accoutrement!

But, because I got all excited, I mean REALLY excited (like multiple postings which consisted of only "EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!") Everyone was all laughing at me.

Then, I realized everyone is always laughing at me because I constantly put my foot in my mouth. I need to work on this. Seriously. I do. (It might be because I have little to no filtering system between my thoughts and words.... note to self: find filtering system!)

But, I will leave you with this. It's the first picture I took once the snow went down. I was still squealing. And, Nutty was there to support me.

I Can Haz Brunette?

It all began with Twilight. Laleeta, Aisuru, and I thought it would be a good idea to dress up as characters from the book. Laleeta was Rosalie, Aisuru was Alice and I was Bella. Only problem is, I'm usually blonde. So to be Bella I had to run out and pick up some brown tresses.

Then something terrible happened. I got addicted to the brown hair. I wanted it to stay... FOREVER! I really like the new color and with ETD's huge sale I was could get a TON of new hair in my new shade for cheap!!!! So, the brunette is here to stay. I decree it so!

Then, I decided I needed to post some pictures of my new hair. I plopped myself down on a photo studio and started snapping...... and kept snapping..... and kept snapping..... Okay, I got a bit carried away. I just got really into it, and I liked the artsy feel of some of them. Just love and appreciate.

These are the fruits of my labors:

The Teachings of Nutty

At first I thought I might enter the bunny war. I enlisted my own personal bunny guard. He was cute and competent. I thought I had it made. I would embark on the battlefield of Envision, by way of my magical rainbow bridge, (which merges the joy and joyness of our two great empires) with much courage and valor.

Then, I realized that my bunny guard was a bit jittery. Must be that genetic engineering.... and I couldn't have a guard with an itchy trigger finger. My trek to the battle worn fields of Envision must be delayed.

Then I met my new and Yoda-like furry friend...

The wise and mighty squirrel named Nutty convinced me of the wise ways of pacifism. He let me sit on his great head as he told me great stories of the bunny wars of the past. How there was such heart break with sister bunnies gunning each other down in vicious territory battles. He told me how the squirrels hid in their trees and watched the distruction and how they were spared in this time of great sadness. He said that we should all get allong and have happy bunny parties with s'mores and hot cocoa.

This was a very wise squirrel.

So I have a giant blinging turkey on the roof of my cottage as "Thanksgiving decoration." In retaliation my neighbor Emerald put out her own thanksgiving dinner. And, uh, Emerald's version of Thanksgiving dinner gives me the chills....

Alicia and I were pondering the origins of the sacrifice and concluded that it must be one two options. First, this unlucky noob tried to go after the lucky chair at the same time as Em, and therefore must die. Or, two, this noob must be the mystery intruder who keeps coming over to Em's cottage and opening the doors incessantly.

Eiter way, dont mess with Em, even when she's wearing skins that make her look huggably cute, like a little Sailor Moon character. She is a tough lady. (Insert angry face here.)

Mmmm, hmmmm. (Insert a more serious and pondering face here.)

I Can Smell Pumpkins!

I was feeling all... in the spirit of the season today so I decided to decorate my cottage. I couldn't do too much, I have prim-licious bits inside my home but I did enough to look festive. Out front I set out a Halloweeny lounger a fat pumpkin and a cute little welcome mat.

I especially love the lounger. It just looks so comfy, and the little candy corn on the pillow are so cute! I could sit there for hours. (Seriously, I did!)

And in the back I put out some cute hay bales with pumpkins. You can sit a bunch of different places on them and thye have super cute poses. All my festive outdoors stuff are freebies I picked up. And mostof it came from the Mudhoney/Jenaration hunt. And they are full of cute!

Last but not least, I went out on the great ghost hunt today. It was exausting but I got through all of the ghosts! But during the hunt many fun moments arose, the best of which I have dutifully captured for you below. I found a little rideable-pig-bouncy-thing. I though, "Great! I'll hop on and ride a bit." Ummmm, I really think there is some sort of animation mix up because this is not the sort of ride the pig nor I had in mind.....

I promise piggy...... I'll take it nice and slow.....

I Can't Keep From Smiling

I probably make the worst goth ever. Look how cheerful I am... and covered in blood. It must be cherry flavored! (Must be!!!)

Meme Joy!

This meme has been circulating the blogs so I figured I'd give it a try. So, I'm not exactly sure how true this is. I like to lead and all, but I'm also happy following. For what it's worth, here are my results:

You Are the King

You are natural leader. You like to rule, and people like to be ruled by you.

You handle responsibility well. You enjoy providing for those who are loyal to you.

You master anything you try, and you refuse to accept failure as an option.

You're especially good at developing strategies and delegating tasks.

You are a total perfectionist. Your standards are hard to live up to.

However, you are also very generous ... at least to those in your inner circle.

What Role Do You Play?

And, while I was at it I decided to find out what tea I am. I really like tea, and I really liked my result. It just felt very me.

You Are Bubble Tea

You are playful, sweet, and light hearted. You almost always have a smile on your face.

You don't take life all that seriously, and you're always up for some laughs.

You are very modern. You are up on the latest food, fashion, and entertainment trends.

You are open minded and open to new experiences. Finding new things to love is a minor obsession of yours.

Stress etc.

RL has been getting in the way of SL lately. As some of you might know, I'm trying to wrap up my "super" senior year of college and I have my senior project looming over me. It's a huge research project and is literally consuming my life as of late. So, yes, I'm sorry for my absence, but I have had NO time. :(

In happier news, My new computer has allowwed me to mess with windlight settings like never before, making my sl experience richer and more beautiful. Seriously, sometimes I just sit around and tweak settings for hours. I am such a windlight snob. Unfortunatly, everytime I see myself in the default settings I look at my avi's face and think, god, you are hideous. All those shadows and akward lines. But then I kick up the gamma and turn off the shadows and I'm like, awww, you are cute little av. Okay, I need to get to my point, which is: I always feel bad that a lot of people are seeing me in default settings, and I wonder if they are like, scarred by my henious face. I'm sorry default people! But it looks so bad when I have on a facelight with my windlight set all nicely.

But I still love you!

Things, They are A-changing!

So, now that I'm all setteled in my new beach cottage, with the best land lord ever (the amazing Alicia Chenaux), I decided it was time for a change of scenery here at the blog too. I wanted something fresh but simple. In the end I landed myself with this little layout.

I think I like it. What do you all think?

(More on my fantabulous beach cottage later)

Sehra vs. The Semi of Satan

So, I was driving downtown, minding my own business, being a conscientious driver as usual yesterday. There's a bunch of roadwork near the city and I always drive the speed limit because in areas with roadwork all speeding fines are doubled. I don't like to pay fines. So, here I am puttering along at 55 mph in the slow lane when the Satan Semi pulls up behind me. This giant semi is a garish shade of yellow and from the moment I saw it I knew it was trouble.

The first thing Satan Semi decides to do is tail me. Close. Really close. So close that all I can see in my rear-view mirror is the grill of Satan Semi. Now, I know semi trucks take longer than a regular car to stop and if I stop at this point, all I will be is a skid mark below Satan. At this point I would like to share that the passing lane is wide open.

This continues for around 10 miles. And then, the catastrophic happens. I am quite familiar with the city, so I know that at this one intersection, even though the other lane has the yeild sign, sometimes I have to yield because the yahoos in the other lane don't yield. Yet again, I do not want to be in an unnecessary accident. Unfortunatly, Satan is still behind me. So, I slow just a fraction to make sure no yahoos are going to hit me and Satan decides that this marginal slow-down is compleatly unacceptable. He lays on his horn. Not for just a second, not a couple times, but in a one minute long uninterrupted blare. I do not exxagerate. A full minute of horn.

I hate you Satan!!!!!!!

So after an unnecessarily drawn out moving process.

(Items arriving in separate pieces on separate days. Having to resign the lease twice. Door knobs not functioning.)

I have relocated into my new cozy apartment. I'm quite pleased. The only problem is that there seems to be some kind of holdup on the cable/ethernet. The apartment club house says it's the cable's fault. The cable says it's the club house's fault. It is just terribly over-complicated. So, I might be pirating the wireless from an unknown benefactor in my building. But still! I'm alive, and oh, how I have missed all my SL friends.

And, I'm in time for the Hair Fair. Damn, I have good timing!

Friday, August 8, 2008

Oh! Tag!

(angry face for moving)

All my moving drama has been putting a cramp on my bloggage lately. (Sorry!) I just been preoccupied with putting things in boxes and refinishing my new bedroom set. But, I look at my blog and feel all guilty. (And even more guilty about WTF, I neeeeeed to post there...) So, I thought I'd do a little something. I decided to answer Cen's little question thingy. Yay!

5 things you don't know about me in RL:
-I cannot tan, I go outside with the intention to tan on a regular basis, but all I ever achieve is getting a sunburn and a few more freckles.
-I am a compulsive cleaner. I just find myself tiding up all the time.
-I hate going on vacations where there are no flushing toilets. I need toilets, and preferably electricity.
-I love dogs. They are pretty much the best pet ever. So happy and loving.
-I'm seriously afraid of heights. Ladders scare me. Sometimes stairs scare me. I know, it's really sad. :P

5 things you don't know about me in SL:
-I get really scared of people who randomly say hello to me. I just have an irrational fear that they are creepers or something. (I really need to get over this...)
-I have an obsession with tee shirts. When I see them in stores I am almost compelled to buy them. That and bikinis.
-I constantly prowl past notices in all my groups.
-I am always displeased with the shoes in my inventory, even as I accumulate more.
-Sometimes I'm shy to start conversations, but I love it when people start them with me! (As long as they are not random new people, then I get scared.... see number one in SL.)

Random Party Fun

A belated hump day party happened tonight and the fun and craziness really hit the spot. I love how when we all get together there is a certain synergy and our quirky-ness feeds together. It was a smaller crowd (prob because of the evening change) but it was mighty.

Oh yes, mighty.

And we all kind wore whatever crazy stuff we wanted to. I was a tiki girl, then a latex angel, then a regualr angel, then a chihuahua headed angel. Overall, it was fun!

Wednesday, July 23, 2008


So, I caved and bought a new skin by Gala. And, guys, I really love it! It's so fresh faced and has adorable freckles all over it. I honestly cannot stop staring at it. And luckily I don't have the "Alicia Syndrome" where Gala skins make me look like I'm wearing Sai. (If you really want to know hop over to Ch'know and read the entry.)

Sorry, I can't contain it: Squeeeee!

Far Far Away...

So, I'm out of town again this weekend. I seem to be doing this a lot lately. But this weekend is just for me, no work/family obligations. Some friends and I are packing up and heading down to a semi-local lake. We have grand plans of jet skis, kayaks, bonfires and other lake type things.


Yes, I am excited.

And because it vaguely applies (there will be cute male people at the lake and because the lake is nature-y) I'm putting in the fun meme I found on Meara's Blog.

Your Seduction Style: Au Natural

You rank up there with your seduction skills, though you might not know it.

That's because you're a natural at seduction. You don't realize your power!

The root of your natural seduction power: your innocence and optimism.

You're the type of person who happily plays around and creates a unique little world.

Little do you know that your personal paradise is so appealing that it sucks people in.

You find joy in everything - so is it any surprise that people find joy in you?

You bring back the inner child in everyone you meet with your sincere and spontaneous ways.

Your childlike (but not childish) behavior also inspires others to care for you.

As a result, those who you befriend and date tend to be incredibly loyal to you.

Oh, Yeah!

I am the queen master wasp killer!

So, I mentioned the nest of wasps at my work a few posts ago. Well, they have been plaguing me for the past month or so, and, being allergic to them, I have done little to nothing about them. I just have this fear that if I get too near their nest they will all swarm me, and all that will be left of poor Sehra is a bleached-out skeleton. Well, today, on the way to the bathroom, a little posse of wasps came after me. I had just had it. I had tried ignoring them. I had tried running from them. I had tried screaming at them. It was the end of the line. Today it was time for a new, more devious, approach. I whipped out my can of wasp killer on that posse and killed them all! Whoot!

Drunk on my success from the wasp massacre, I decided to kill all the wasps I could possibly find. I sprayed mud dauber nests. I sprayed yellow jacket hives, I sprayed areas I suspected might have at some point had some kind of stinging bug living in it. When I came back to my senses I had used the entire can of wasp spray and there was the general buzz of angry winged bugs all over my working area. Hahahahaha. I knew soon they would all perish.

Oh yes, I am the queen master wasp killer!

Your Face Will Get Stuck That Way!

I am bored! So I've decided to amuse myself by making faces and taking pictures.... I'm one SLexy biatch no?

Well, maybe not... :P

EDIT: Now Elora and I are talking like pirates. We both agree that pirates are good people. Even if they do steal and pillage and do other unseemly things. Now If I can only get my hands on some pirate rum.

Thursday, July 10, 2008


Can I just say that I am glad some unexpected relatives popped into town last night and prevented me from logging on SL. It seems the proverbial sh*t hit the fan with some random person. It's probably good I was not there because I have a quick temper. (Not one of my greatest attributes, I'll admit.)

But to those who were hurt, I hope things get better. I hate to see people hurting!

Car Update

So, I got my car back today. I was super excited. But then they tell me that there wasn't anything wrong with it. Now, this I do not believe for one second. I distinctly remember having to have that thing towed to the shop. But they said it was just fine. So, I drove my baby home and it did indeed seem to be true, my car was fine.

I had it parked in the garage for around an hour then I had to leave for my pottery class. This is when the plot thickens. I go to start my car and no deal. It does not start again. So friends, it is back to square one.

I love mechanics!

Give Me My SL!

SL, I don't care about your higher than usual logins. I WANT TO FREAKING LOG IN! Unless the world is going to come to an end because of a few more log ins, you better let me. What a lame excuse.....

Your It!

I was confused and slightly annoyed by the sight of what must have been a game of tag going on at Armidi tonight when Nikki pointed out something to me. I also like to make a spectacle of myself in public places. Case in point, Tuesday night when Ali, Cen, Meara, Aisuru, Sai and I danced in a Gor sim like it was our own personal night club. (Well, they never should have put out a dance ball....)

Then, I decided to hope those running fools were having as much fun as we did the night before...

Yeah, have some pics to commemorate our tomfoolery:

Monday, June 30, 2008

Me too! Me too!

I'm jumping on the bandwagon and posting this. I really would like to be a part of the Donnas!

You Should Be In The Donnas

You've got that a bit of an edge to you

The bad girl that all the good boys want!

New Love

Everyone in SL seems to be falling in love... except me. Ho hum.

Then I remembered that I am in love... with shopping. And what better way to show my love than blowing as many lindens as possible at a little store called Twosome. They were having a big sale and I just cannot resist 35L tee shirts, or really any tee shirts. I love tee shirts!

I bought all these outfits never having worn anything by the creator before and just trusted that the clothes were as adorable as they looked in the pictures. And after a quick tp back home I began to try on my new acquisitions and guess what, they were even more beautiful than I imagined. Great hand detailing with appropriate wrinkles denoting a light cotton top. Lets just say I was so in love I had to go out to Surfline and take some pics to show the outfits off for you.

First, I have a wonderful green tank with cute button details.

This purple tank has such cute straps, I love the print!

And I couldn't help but pick up this adorable bikini! So cute!

This tank has a great neckline, I love the prints and circles!

Last, and my favorite, is this bright green tank. I LOVE it. And it goes well with my cheepie wedges from Periquita.

I have one conclusion after spending last night at a formal dinner for the Artists' Coalition.

Artists+Wine+Band=Insane Dancing!

That is all.

Thursday, June 26, 2008

No Lappy, no! And other drama...

I'm alive, I promise! But my poor little Lappy is not in good shape. Soon Dell will be sending me a little box for Lappy to go away in, and hopefully in 5-7 business days Lappy will be all healed and whole and back in my possession.

One would think that this was enough drama for one day. But, alas, no. I haven't been in SL for the past few days.... see last paragraph... so you get to hear me whine about RL. This is a breakdown of things that have made today SUPER SPECTACULARLY SUCKY! Yay!

First, I am a frequent driver of country roads and like most people who frequent these roads I understand that the speed limit is a mere suggestion and there aren't like to be any cops in a 50 mile radius of where you are. So if you know the road well (and pretty much everyone who drives these roads does, because why else would you be out here with the cows and trees) you drive them at around 60 instead of the recommended 45. I rely on that speed of traffic to arrive at work on time. But today there was a difference. Some poor soul had stumbled on these twisty, turny, hilly back roads for likely the first time in their life. How do i know this? They were going 35. 35!!!!!!!! Aaaaaaaaah!!!!!!!! And I cannot pass them because the roads are too damn twisty and tree covered! I just about had a conniption. I was so late to work.

Second, work sucked. I knew it would. When I woke up it was cloudy and very windy and I could just feel a thunderstorm coming in the breeze. But did my boss care? No. He was all, "It's going to be beautiful, it won't rain! The weather channel says so!" Okay. Seriously. I am there like two hours and it just pours. And I work outside. Yeah, waste of a day going to work. And going to work late at that. So I think... not a total loss. I get to go home early.

Third, I am dead wrong. I do not get to go home early. Yes, I do get to clock out early. But no I cannot leave. Why? My car is dead. Dead, dead, dead. I have to call roadside assistance. It is the suck and takes an hour and a half to get to me and then two more hours to get the car gone and then another hour to arrange a ride to come get me. Thats four and a half hours wasted. And all allong I could have been at home because I knew it was going to freaking rain. But I'm like, okay, I can just go home and take a nap with nice rainy sounds in the background.

Fourth, I fail. I get home, via a friend, and I think everything is okay. It is not. All the sudden I feel a massive burning painful feeling spreading across my upper stomach. This is not good. I lift up my shirt to inspect this feeling and what do I find? A freaking wasp sting. I have a wasp stinger lodged firmly in my rib region and it has a large pink swelling area around it. I must have been stung while I was working, like all 20 minutes I was working. And with the stress of my car I hadn't noticed it. And I am allergic to wasp stings so in the four-ish hours of the car fiasco the embedded stinger had been wreaking havoc on my system. GREAT! Today is jsut wonderful.

So now the rain has stopped, my car is still dead, my lappy is ill, my ribs are burning and I am so frustrated I cannot sleep. And that is why you had to listen to me rant.

The One Where I Fall Asleep

Okay, the Viper Pit party was awesomeness. Everyone looked great and there was an amazing amount of fun people there! Yay! I got there late... stupid nap.... but the party was still in full swing. I even got to meet some new people, which I love doing!!!!! And new bloggers were there too! I love meeting the people I read about. Eeeeeeee, yay!

Now on to RL dramaz. I have been super tired lately... I blame my silly sunburn. (Sorry you have one too Alicia! They suck don't they?) And this sleepiness has not been helpful at work. Actually, it was really slow today (rainy) so I decided I would just lean on the counter and rest my burny neck. It felt so nice. Then next thing I know it is half an hour later!!!! OMG!!!! I fell asleep at work!!!! I really hope nobody came by while I was sleeping! (Doubtful, I would have heard them approaching and it was reeeeeeeally slow.) But yeah, I'm super embarrassed. Just don't tell my boss. Actually, I think he would laugh. He asked me if I fell asleep one day that we were really slow a few weeks ago and didn't seem to opposed to me doing so.

But here's the kicker: When I woke up from my nappy-po I looked down at my chest and I noticed I have a GIANT hive on it. It's all itchy and red! I hate hives! I'm prone to them when I eat foods I'm allergic to, hello shellfish, but I can't figure out what I did to earn this one. Now if I can just get it to go away so I can wear a bra again......

Sleepy Sunday

I had a pretty lazy weekend. Minus a couple of good sales/hunts not much went down. But really, I think I enjoyed the down time. It was a nice relaxing change.

Oh, and If you haven't, go to Cupcakes, they have another good sale going on! I love Cupcakes and I love sales! Whoot!!!!! (Actually I like Cupcakes the store and cupcakes the food equally, so if you want me to love you a gift of both would ensure my everlasting devotion.)

In the end, I hope your weekend was relaxing too!

Rain,Rain, Go Away


The Midwest is sinking underwater due to massive and unrelenting rain.

There is a small puddle in the corner of my basement.....

More Excitement

I am officially crazy.

Last night I decided to go out shopping with one of my good friends. This would be a normal occurrence in most people's lives except for one thing. We decided to go out shopping despite the fact that there was a major storm headed our way which had already produced at least one tornado......

What can I say, we really wanted to go shopping! It wasn't raining yet when we set out on the adventure. It was just dark an ominous towards the west. I think we could have had a fairly profitable experience too, if we hadn't decided to go to the outside shopping mall. Yeah, mistake numero uno. They just have better stores there! Really!

So, in a strike of genius we park my car, the Buick boat, in a parking garage in case there was hail. (There was an eerie green tint to the sky.) And meander off to Express. Now, I am a power shopper and would have been out in 10-15 minutes, I don't mess around when it comes to shopping. I want maximum buying power for time spent. But my friend is a lingerer. She took far too long in Express and by the time we decided to move on to the next store it was raining cats and dogs. (Seriously, water was pooling inside the doors of the store.)

Then came the security guard. He told us that the whole shopping center was going on lockdown because of the storm. Seriously. Lockdown. I do not kid. It was at this point that we realized the dilemma, we could stay in Express for the next hour or so and wait out the storm, but we had already purchased all the cute stuff and there was really nothing to do..... Or we could make a run for the Barnes and Nobel down the street ,where her sister worked, and we could at least read during our trapped time.

So we ran. Amid scary cloud to ground lightening and teeny tiny hail we ran for the doors of Barnes and Nobel like we were being chased by an army of blingtards.

Her sister let us in, despite the lockdown, and we waited out the storm sipping chai and reading somewhat scholarly books. (Okay, we might have picked them out to look scholarly, and we might have pretended to have English accents to look all smart and sophisticated. We had a lot of time to blow, guys, and there were only like three people in the whole two story book store. Why not do a little fake sophisticated bit. Spice it up man, spice it up!)

Overall, despite all the crazy weather drama, it was a really fun evening. I think it always works out to be fun when you get stuck somewhere and have to make your own fun. Or maybe I'm just really easily amused. Either way, I'm making the most out of life. :)

What a Day

So my Wednesday was very eventful. Now you get to hear about it! :)

The day began with massive inventory sorting, I realized that I have around 100 pairs of shoes but I only ever used around 5 pairs because I could never find the others. The same goes for hair. And when I'm being honest I'll admit that hair and shoes are my two biggest expenses in SL. I can never stop myself from getting new ones, nor can i stop myself from loosing old ones into the abyss known as my inventory.

This sorting process began to take quite a while so I decided I should relax while I'm sorting. This lead to me breaking out my mini-pool made be the lovely Alicia Chenaux. It's the perfect way to work on a tan, a buzz, and some inventory.

Now you may think that my night stops there, but no. It goes on, waaaaay on. You see, last night was CeN's birthday blowout. At 8 everyone hustled into the rave ball for some serious fun. And let me tell you, EVERYONE came. There were around 35 people there! I didn't recognize at least a third of them, but we all had massive fun regardless. After it was over I realized I had only taken two pictures! TWO! I am full of fail. Seriously. I didn't even get on of the birthday girl CeN! I'm terrible! But, I was just having too much fun. So it's not my fault, it's yours (if you went to the party) for distracting me! :P

And thats about it. Great night, great people, great fun!

I Love My UTI!

Okay, ummmmm, yeah...

I was watching America's Best Dance Crew on MTV tonight (I know, I watch lame reality TV) and I saw one of the funniest commercials OF MY LIFE.

Now, I need to preface this, this commercial does not know it is funny. It thinks it is an informative commercial about Universal Technical Institute. But it is not.

It just happens to throw around it's acronym A LOT in the commercial. And what is that acronym? UTI. Oh yes, UTI, as in urinary tract infection. All I could think of, while they were singing the praises of automotive schooling, was why all these men were so gung ho about bladder pain. OMG, I nearly died laughing.

And that is all.

So, yeah...

Between tornado/flood warnings in RL I managed to make it on SL and be crazy. A bunch of the ch'know groupers got together and started building on two campers. It was mass hilarity but i'll leave the pics for someone else to throw up on their blog, i cant steal all the fun. Lets just say that one little camper become a boy and one became a girl. (complete with a little gray kitty and ass hat, lol) We took a bunch of pics and harassed Wrath to come visit but he was too hyped up on top shelf 'ritas and anti-socialism to join in.

Right before I had to run off to grab some dinner (mmmmm, chicken) we took this shot. I think it shows our general BAMF nature. (And I managed to snag priceless expressions from both Cen and Ali, sorry about the closed eyes Khari, but you still look hardcore) Yeah, we rock.... hard.


Stupid SL is not allowing logins right now. Makes me all anrgy-like.

So I thought I'd make a post about my frustration.

Ahhhhh, Summer

I admit it, I'm getting cabin fever. It's so warm out and beautiful and I am feeling that familiar need to commune with nature.

I figured if I was getting antsy for the great outdoors in RL then my poor little avi must be too. So I took her out to surfline and let her get a little sun. (I really couldn't help hamming it up for the camera too..... I know.... I'm an attention whore)

Thats about it, just some nature love, and possibly some shopping later. You know how that goes.

Just Can't Dump Him

So yeah, I think I'm in an abusive relationship with SL.

SL just does not care about me the way I care about him. I set up dates and then he's just offline for some lame excuse. Or I'm in the middle of a nice evening with him and all the sudden he just shuts me down!

Or I have a nice outfit all planned out for the evening and he decides he does not want me to wear a prim skirt and I have to go in pants instead. And really, he never tells me when anything is going on. Like the fact that his personal issues are causing him to constantly leave me high and dry, but I only find out after the fact.

And when it comes down to it, I think he's cheating on me with thousands of other users every second of the day.

Oh, SL, I love you but all you give me is hurt.

The One About Bresticles

So, okay. This is just something I do not understand. Bewbs.

Yes, I know, I am a female and i do posses a pair myself but it's not the basics of that anatomy that confuse me, it's the ridiculous levels to which people take them. More specifically people who feel the need to have the slider all the way up to 100 on the bewb scale.

Why? And why are there so damn many people with these gigantic bewbs? Are there really that many people out there who want enormous bewbs? Imagine trying to hug someone with those things, it'd be like having another person sandwiched in between you. And what if you had to tie your shoes, how would you see them? Or when your eating, they would cover the plate, resting heavily on the table! I don't understand!!!!!!!!

I know I've been told that many of the people with the giant bewbs are men dressed as women, but some of them are actual women. I just want to know... for the record... why are they so great? Because I don't get it........
