Are you someone who likes the spotlight? If you asked me that question, I’d probably say no, but… I don’t know. I think I kinda do.
I think all bloggers do, to an extent. We take our pictures for others to see and hope that our words reach out to someone somewhere. I like DJing because it means I get to share music I like and kind of keep a captive audience if I speak. And let’s face it, I always speak. *laughs* What can I say. I love to perform and I love public speaking. I’m also highly competitive, as my family can tell you from our game nights! So yes… shine that spotlight on me!
I’m actually DJing for a couple of private parties this weekend for the first time in forever. I miss doing it more often in SL but I can’t really commit to a regular set anywhere, unfortunately. I wish that I could. If anyone has a club in SL and needs a sporadic DJ who plays country and top 40 and will probably bring her kids along, hey, I’m your girl! LOL!!
Anyway, it’s SUPER cold here tonight [I’m not ready for this winter life] so it’s time to go get into bed and cuddle up with blankets!
I don’t get a chance to dress up a lot. I don’t really go out a lot, at least not to formal places, so most of my ball gowns just sit in my inventory unused. But tonight I’m DJing for little Peyton Oleander’s birthday party, and it’s a royal theme. I finally get to pull out some of my lovely gowns! And since it’s a themed party, I needed to make a new photo for my tip board, so I figured I might as well make it my pic of the day. 🙂
Speaking of parties, I think we’re going to throw a little get together tomorrow evening. Aldwyn feels like DJing again in SL so we’ll probably just be out in our park again, or maybe up in the fun skybox to play Greedy or trivia. We haven’t really decided.
And then Saturday evening, I think I’m DJing for the grand re-opening of Funky Junk since Ulaa just moved to a new location. I hear…I hear there might be a little sale if there is a party. 😉
Much to do before tonight, so I’m off!
My friends Lourdes and Salvatore got married today!! I was their DJ, so I took extra special care to dress nicely.
It was a great place and it was really nice to see some of my plurk buddies in world! We so rarely get together. Well, okay, I so rarely get together with them. I’m sure a lot of them see each other all the time. But of course, nothing was better than seeing the bride walk down the aisle. LOOK AT THAT DRESS!!
They had Pamala, Aldwyn’s friend who officiated at our wedding, also do theirs! I thought that was nice, because Pamala really seems to get into it! 🙂
Awww, the bride and groom!!
We had a really great time at the reception. They requested a pretty much all 90s playlist, which of course you know I was totally into. I love 90s music!! And yes, we did take our shoes off!
Kesseret really enjoyed the reception! She did share, though, so that was a plus!
It was really an awesome wedding and I’m overjoyed that I got to be part of their day. 🙂 Now who is NEXT???
I’m DJing tonight for the Oleanders’ Halloween party. It’s the first party I’ve done in a while, and I’m happy about it. The only thing better is if my husband could come, too, but he’s DJing tonight out in the physical world. Did you all know he’s a real DJ? I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned that before. I keep telling him he needs to do it in SL, too, but he claims he plays mostly old man music. Hey, I like old man music!!
But since he’s not here, we didn’t get a chance to do costumes together like we did last year when we went as sparkly vampires. I wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood but I never did find an outfit I liked. Either they were too ugly or too “sexy.” Or too ugly while attempting to be sexy. So I settled on this adorable Alice In Wonderland costume from Deviance that I’ve had my eye on for a while. Combined with an oldddd Halloween skin from Free Speerit, and some tattoo layer bloody cuts, I feel spooky and cute all at the same time.
I’m starting to wonder if I should make my shoes blue. I made them red to match the Heart and Diamond on my apron, but now I’m wondering if that makes it more Dorothy than Alice.
I guess I should get back to work putting the playlist together and digging out my tip board and all that fun stuff. I DJ so rarely, everything always gets lost!
Well well well. Number 300 in the 365 photo challenge. Of course, had I not been postponed a few days here and there, I guess I’d be closer to 315 or so. But I told myself that when I started, if I had to miss a day, I’d pick it up and not skip. So there you go. 300.
September seems to be a month of change for me. Last year at this time, I was holding that massive yard sale, becoming friends with new people, and starting to SL date again. The year before that, I was getting unpartnered and acquiring my island. Oh wow, tomorrow is Bluebonnet’s 2 year anniversary! If I’d thought about it, I think I would have thrown a party. Maybe next year. 🙂
So what changes will come this September? Who knows? I already feel some “shifts” in my SLife. Good ones, I think. I hope, anyway!
Just a reminder, but I’m DJing tonight from 8pm-10pm SLT at Wear Gray, a charity event being held to raise money for the American Brain Tumor Association. I’d love to see you guys out there! 100% of my tips tonight are going right into the donation box, so come have some fun and help raise money for a good cause! ♥
So I learned 3 things today.
1. When I’m using my male shape and I happen to go out shopping, I really should consider investing in a male AO so that I don’t bounce around and walk girly all over the place.
2. I need to warn people before they come into my house that I have it set so I see the sun & moon only, not local lights. I don’t know how I got into that habit, but honestly, it just LOOKS better to me because I usually have my windlight setting on a bright light. But, I really didn’t realize that anyone who has it set to show local lights who might come into my house will be blinded immediately.
And 3. I really did miss DJing. I always have loved to do it, but I did get worn out after a while holding the weekly parties, which I did for pretty much a year straight, minus a week here and there. I’ve been taking quite a bit of time off this year. Everyone needs a break. But the more I do it again, the more I remember that I love doing it, and I’m always happy to DJ for a friend’s party or an event. [I don’t like DJing clubs.] Tonight I DJed for the Exodi & WoE sim launch party. It was sooo fun and soooooooo crowded!! I really had a good time, and I hope others did, too. 🙂
That’s one of the new Isolde skins by Exodi, btw. I think it’s the Gacha gift makeup one, or the fishing gift one. I’m not in world at the moment to check. I didn’t have time to really tweak my face for it, so if it looks strange on me…well, I look strange in most skins other than Belleza these days. LOL It’s not the skin’s fault, it’s my crazy faced shape.
My next post is going to be kind of a personal one, so if you don’t care about my RL stuff, then don’t read it. LOL Just wait for the next 365 day project post. I promise I won’t mind. 🙂
I’m always really happy when I find just the right thing for the house. I’ve been attempting to finish the living room, but I had a blank wall that I just didn’t know what to do with. I hit up Kyoot for Fifty Linden Friday, thinking their memory tree was small for a tabletop. I was so excited that it was wall sized! And perfect for the house!
I rarely take photos in world anymore, so I’m digging through my flickr to find good pics to upload for the tree. I love it.
This evening I came out of my semi-retirement and DJed a birthday party for Bethany Heart. I say semi-retirement, but really, I just have just been too lazy to DJ. LOL It was really fun, and the party was full of the cutest little roller girls ever.
It probably looked better than this pic, but my settings were at the absolute lowest so that I wouldn’t crash, so you know how that goes. 🙂
I spent the last few hours making some of the shopping rounds. I probably should have waited, though. My Saturday is free and clear. Usually I go visit with my parents on Saturdays, but my mom has this thing against me driving if it’s too cold, too wet, or too hot. Tomorrow is supposed to be 106. Yeahhh…I think I’ll stay in the air conditioned house. :-p Maybe I’ll actually knock out some blog posts I’ve been sitting on. You just never know what a free Saturday will bring. 🙂
