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'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.
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......
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.)
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. :)
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
