Dear Santa, Bring Me Some Gas

12-06-2017

Out of gas and out of time….

As I was getting dressed for the pre-Christmas party she had planned, She decided we needed yet another tree to let all the guests decorate. Cute idea, but the timeliness of her idea left a little to be desired. So, I hopped in the truck and headed to the wooded area out back to find a suitable tree for her grand scheme. It didn’t take long to find what I wanted and a quick cut and it was in the back of the truck headed home… Easy peasy, right? Long story short, I ran out of gas. She’s on her way with the spare 5 gallon tank, but she isn’t happy….

Seeing Red… and White

Today’s holiday look is the White Shirt with Tie and Gray Slacks from Wilson’s Designs. This outfit can be yours for just 1L on the Dear Santa Hunt. If you don’t fee like hunting, you can just purchase the gift near the hunt sign for 25L. This hunt runs all month long. Don’t miss it!

Soon… True Peace

12-04-2017

Finally….

We have come to a peace accord. I am no longer allowed to mention “the chair”, the incident, the attempted murder, or how the chair was really mine. (I did call “dibs” first!) Also, I am to complement her daily (while trying to hide my eye rolls as I say them). And for her part of the peace treaty, she is to smile and say thank you every time I give her said complements. I think I could have gotten a better deal….

We are both NUTS!

We decided to take a leisurely stroll outside in the fresh snow. We even put on our FREE matching sweaters (so we didn’t fight over who got to wear what)  from NUTS Inc. that we found on the Peace on Earth Hunt.  The his and hers Britt and Niels Sweaters come in the following sizes:

For Her…

  • Mesh XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

For Him…

  • Sizes S-L + Alpha Layer
  •  2 Fitmesh sizes

That Peaceful, Easy Feeling…

It didn’t take me long to intentionally trip  playfully shove her down in a snow drift. I ended up down there with her. (she my be small but STRONG).  And after a bit of snow throwing (how I ended up on the bottom, I don’t know, but I was watching out for any object that could be placed over my face) she looked up and pointed out a dove flying overhead. Maybe we will have peace after all. Another FREE gift to be found on the Peace on Earth Hunt is the Soon True Peace pose from Something New . This lovely couples pose includes the dove, the symbol for peace. It may also be a nice pose for the traditional couples Christmas Card. I only hope peace lasts at least through the holidays….

The Importance of Calling “Dibs”

11-30-207

Dibs – Plural noun  \ ˈdibz \  

The most powerful force  in the universe, “dibs” is used to call possession of a certain object or idea. “Dibs” is a time honored tradition to all, except one… I saw the “Prenzlau” Armchair & Side Table by Kusshon as I was looking at the previews of the Peace on Earth Hunt and I immediately called “dibs”. She looked at me as if I was speaking in a foreign language (which, technically, I was because she uses too many vowels in her words). I found the definition and pasted it into chat. It was like she couldn’t read it. She then rezzed the chair and said “Oh, do you mean THIS chair?” It’s funny how she remembers the story differently [HERE]. (Ok, the part about watching pretty blondes in spandex and capes was true) It was at that point I knew for certain that she either doesn’t understand “dibs” or just completely ignored it. My money is on ignoring me as she does that most the time anyhow…

And now, back to our regularly scheduled post…

The cat doesn’t sit on his lap. He CHOOSES to sit under the feline. He doesn’t light a cigar. The cigar spontaneously lights as it touches his lips. He is the most interesting man in the world (who believes in “dibs”). And what does the most interesting man in the world wear? The Formal Men’s Suit by Wilson’s Designs as Part of the Peace on Earth Hunt. The hunt officially starts tomorrow and everyone is as excited as a child on Christmas Eve holding a plate of cookies for Santa. I’d call “dibs” on the plate of cookies, but I have a feeling I know how that would turn out…

Finding the REALLY BIG ONE!

Finding the BIG ONE!

No rest for the weary…

My Sunday didn’t go as planned. I was hoping to enjoy the middle part of my three day weekend lounging in bed until an ungodly hour, then putting on a pot of chili and watching some football. But when she entered the bedroom all perky (note: Who is this person? She is never perky in the morning). I knew my plans were a bust. Her chore for me today… go find the perfect pumpkin. And not just any pumpkin, but a REEEALLY BIIIIG one (Her words, not mine). After stopping by many pumpkin farms, I think I found one that will please her (A challenge in itself). If I hurry, I can still catch the start of the game. I hope she took pity on me and started the chili.

Men Only (Not Really)…

Today’s look comes straight from the Men Only Hunt 10. The Hunt started over the weekend and everywhere I went there were hunters looking for the FREE gifts. My outfit is the FREE hunt gift at Wilson’s Designs. The Rust Pullover and Blue Jeans are the perfect fall casual look to find pumpkins (or mustaches). The Shirt comes fitted sizes ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, Gianni, Slink, TMP and classic avatar XS-XL. The pants come in sizes XS-XL. The Jake Canvas Sneakers can be found at ILLI as the FREE hunt prize. These beautifully detailed sneakers come in sizes for the the following body types:   ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, MeshProject, Signature, Slink and TMP. Don’t worry, ladies, there are also sizes in the gift to fit you too!

Oh My Gourd…

Today’s pose is the FREE MOH10 gift from Le Poppycock. The Oh My Gourd pose comes with the pose, the large pumpkin that you carry and a group of pumpkins for your background (not shown). The Men Only Hunt 10 runs until October 28th.

I hope this one is big enough. I don’t think my back could handle a bigger one!

Last Gasp

Last Gasp

To the last, I grapple with thee;
From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee;
For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.
– Herman Melville
(and this year’s winter)

I’m just so over you….

With the first day of calendar spring just a few short days away, one would think that the sun would be shining, the birds singing and flowers beginning to rise from the ground….
Nope, I was hit with a late winter surprise this week. I’m ready for short sleeves shirts and shorts, but it isn’t happening anytime soon, at least according to the weather report.
Today’s look was hard to find. Everyone is thinking spring and I had to fall back into winter. I remembered seeing a past group gift at Costarlos still out and decided to grab it before spring is here to stay. The Red Jacket with Shirt and Tie was a FREE Christmas gift to members that is still available and was very fitting for today. And I am still wearing the Black Pants, part of the $1L The Best of You Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs.

Moving forward…

I’m so hoping that this is the final burst of winter. But at least it allowed me to show you some group gifts from Yack. By joining the group for FREE, you can pick up both the Waze Hat and the Zurich Scarf. Each comes with its own texture HUD to match your outfit. While at Yack, I also grabbed the FREE Basic Line Sunglasses. They come in three colors, black, blue and gold to keep the snow glare off your eyes.
Say goodbye winter. Don’t let the door hit you in the snowdrift. 😁

Hunting through the night…

One of the great things about Second Life is that it’s open all night. If you can’t sleep you can do the same things you would do during the daytime hours. And one of the things I like doing when i can’t sleep is participating in hunts. The Springtime Aesthetic Hunt just started and I’m finding all kinds of goodies with the Aesthetic (and sometimes other) bodies in mind. Today’s look comes by way of Sin Original. I’m showing the Oliver Tee and Derek Jeans for the Aesthetic body, but also included in the $1L hunt gift are styles and sizes listed below:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Classic mesh sizes XS_XL

The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt continues through March 31st. You can find a list of participating stores [HERE]. Happy Hunting!

Going Momoa…

No you haven’t changed the channel … I’ve (temporarily) changed my look to bring you some of the great gifts from the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt. I’m starting off the hunt by  riding my way… (crickets) … to the stores on a hunt gift by Reckless Pride Chopper. The Gold Don’t Fear The Reaper Chopper is a custom chopper built and posed for avatars with Aesthetic bodies. I took this baby out for a spin and had loads of fun.

Unbuttoned…

My clothing choice is the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs. The New Jeans and Unbuttoned Shirt for Aesthetic bodies is great for hitting the open road or even along side of it. All the gifts on this hunt are available for just $1L. You can get a look at all the hunt gifts [HERE] as well as slurls and hints for the participating stores. The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt runs from February 15th – March 31st And ladies… don’t get used to THIS… the body is a loaner not a keeper 😉

Made it to the Weekend

Snapshot_005

Finally Saturday…

What a long, strange week it has been. But I’ve made it through to the other side unscathed (barely.. I may be coming down with a cold). Now it is time to relax and unwind on the deck. Today’s look is one of the gifts on The Love Hunt. You can find the John Blue Pullover &  Dark Blue Jeans at Wilson’s Designs. This true-to-life outfit (not kidding, I am wearing this same outfit for realz) can be yours for just $1L if you find the hunt gift. Time for me to let the stress leave my shoulders and relax….

Rules to Live By

Orchid - Wilsons Designs

 

Breaking (some of) the rules…

Upon my return, I set down some rules to live by. How have I done with that list? Some I’ve stuck to, a few have been amended  and a couple have been thrown completely out the window. I can sometimes still be a Grumpy Cat, but the rules behind me are simple and easy to live by. The Art Pallet by ::cute as f*ck::: is part of the Fresh Start Hunt that ends Sunday February 12th, so there is still time to find this $1L hunt gift.

Love me some graffiti…

Orchid has a new group gift out for the guys. The Marcello Graffiti Shirt is a FREE (pay $1L Get $1L returned) group gift to members. The Orchid group does cost $1L to join. I paired it with the FM Dark Blue Jeans from Wilson’s Designs, part of the hunt gift from the Love Hunt.( I’ll show the complete outfit later, as the shirt has been eaten by the dreaded inventory bug that has seemed to have hit me.) The Love Hunt has lots of $1L hunt gifts. You should check it out.

The power of Thor…

I was lucky enough to hop online just as Love was completing her photo shoot (she said she was finished modeling granny panties?!? HERE) and could use her backdrop if I wanted. The Lazy Weekend Skybox is featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The matching Lazy Weekend Decor can be picked up by playing the gacha for $50L per pull.
