Busy evening last night taking pictures. I’m addicted – my Flickr hits are nearly 5000 and I’m really excited about that. Wow, just imagine, all those peeps who have looked at my pictures! It’s really satisfying to see some of the comments that people have written too. A huge virtual ego trip, but perfectly harmless. I never thought I’d find a ‘hobby within a hobby’, but that’s exactly what I’ve done. and I love it:) Anyway, on to this weekend. Looks as though I’ll be spending a serious amount of time online this weekend ( Due to a snotty cold in RL and feeling generally crappo meaning that I’m not travelling over to see my beloved) Which also means he can spend quality time among the demons and dragons in WoW and perhaps manage to fit in a visit to see me in-world. YES JEZ THIS IS A HINT! )That leaves me with *lots* of shopping time! Garbage Prototype has posted some fabbo items on Appearance Mode so I’ll be tripping out on a virtual shopping frenzy and then shopping for a swimming pool! I’ve decided a redesign of my main island is in order, and as a consequence the maze is going to go down the dreaded dumper, with the leftover space being used for a dedicated pool and relaxation area. It’s in the planning stages at the mo, but the more I’m thinking about it the more I’m liking the idea. Incidentally, if you’re reading this and you use the ‘Bloghud‘ attachment, can you get in touch with me in world and explain to me why I can’t get mine to work?! I’ve posted a query on the site (to which no-one has responded) and I have a horrible feeling that I’ve wasted $L900 on something that won’t work for me:( I bought it purely for the facility whereby I can blog directly into here from any in-world location, so it’s a bit pants that I can’t get it to function. Plus it annoys me because that’s serious clothing money that I’ve wasted..gaaahhhh!
I must be mad…bookings taken on a first come, first served basis……..
Honeymoon package for 7 days @L$650
Alternatively you can book a short break for 3 days f0r L$ 250
I’ve had a really auspicious week so far! First of all I won a L$500 spending spree in ‘Forever Sexy’ and then last night I won the 70′s disco outfit competition at 3L which made me a further L$250. I donated it back to the pub in a philanthropic gesture, because I spend most of my life there anyway and they’ve managed to get some cracking acts to play there recently. I’m building up my modelling portfolio as well as writing for ‘The Avastar’, so I guess you should call me ‘Busy Kitty’! ( Unlike Jaco in the pub who has been calling me ‘Titty o’Koole’, ahem:)I’m also planning to relaunch my honeymoon island website..I’ve had a lot more interest in it recently which bodes well. I’m dropping the prices too,although IMHO it was never expensive to begin with. I’m not especially materialistic, and I’m not in SL to make huge swathes of dosh. I know lots of people are but it’s very rare that you can be successful at it..we aren’t all Anshe Cheung after all. Plus, I don’t see much point in charging excessively as I’m not a greedy sod. I’m just happy to have some spends in my virtual purse!
Anyway, back to Jaco and his titty obsession…there’s some stonking new snaps on my Flickr, so take a peek if you’re so inclined!
Hey, I didn’t realise but it’s exactly a month since I last posted! So, where have I been huh? I’d love to say that I’d been on holiday, got married, ran a marathon, saved a child from a burning building…but alas, I haven’t. Truth is, real life has got in the way a bit…been a tad poorly and realised that perhaps I was a bit too addicted to SL. Then thought f**k it, and came back ;P Normal service, I think you will find, is now resumed……
Some of you may be wondering why I’ve been featuring Jez so much recently. Well, the simple truth is, he looks a bugger, and when you’re surrounded by bods who make the effort it’s just not good enough:) I think the fault lies with WoW. I blame it for everything and as anyone who knows me is aware, the main reason you don’t see Jez in game is that he plays WoW more than he logs in to SL. This has led some people to think Jez is actually me..lol! Well can I just go on record as assuring you all that nothing could be further from the truth. Jez is not me. Jez is the character my RL fella uses in world when he bothers to log in, and think about it – if Jez had been me he’d have looked good from the beginning and we wouldn’t be having this conversation ;P)
SoI took Jez shopping, and boy did we have a good time! I’ve never really looked into men’s fashion before, seeing as I’m a girl and all, but there is just as much fabulous designer talent out there as there are for the ladies, and until now I was pretty ignorant of it, but I’ll certainly be following it a lot more now!
I bought Jez some corking outfits – he can be seen modelling then on my Flickr – but I’ve been looking for a coat for him. I’ve been glued all week to Mens’s Second Style ( http://www.second-man.com) and this has to be one of the best SL clothing websites out there. It’s an excellent substitution for my Linden Lifestyles addiction while the girls are away, but it’s definitely one that I’ll continue to read. The look of the blog, the links and the writing make for an excellent publication, and I have to say the clothes I’ve seen featured so far have been rather wonderful.
Anyway, I haven’t got him a coat as yet, because there are so many nice ones around that I may well have to buy him the lot. I’m especially loving the ‘Heroes’ inspired designs that I’ve seen, plus you can get ladies versions as well. Jez has kicked off and said that I can’t have one if he has one though. Big Jessie.
