Old SLchool, baby!

Hey…hey buddy. WAKE UP. Don’t you know there’s a party tonight?!

Hey man...wake up.

A few weeks ago on plurk, I mentioned that I wanted to throw an old SLchool party. People could bust out their old old skins and their bling, and we’d party it up in a “club” with a sploder and all that. Most of us don’t go out to clubs in SL anymore, preferring the company of just friends and family and our own lands. But how are we supposed to get to know people if we don’t get out?? Not that going to an SL club now would probably work, but you know what I mean. πŸ™‚

So luckily for me, my Aldwyn was a hoarder on his first account, and had many many things I needed for the party place. I had some stuff – the club build, particles, old dances. But he had the other good stuff – like the old school sploder, old couples dances still inside poseballs [my couples dances are in the intan and most are fairly recent], and dance poles. Because seriously? It’s not a party without dance poles.

We needed outfits, though, so we headed over to Freebies Dungeon. If you want to see ACTUAL NEWBIES, not just people alting, go there!

Actual newbies

The moment we landed someone asked if they could bite me.

[2011/08/02 20:58] Bloodlines Lycan Claw 1.2: Faithes Resident has offered you the power of a Lycan warrior. This will register you with The Bloodlines system, and you’ll get a FREE Lycan wound attachment. Say Yes to accept!

[2011/08/02 20:58] Alicia Chenaux: Not bloody likely, asshole.

Then, of course, some girl got all up on Aldwyn.

Best get OFF my man.

She IMed him first and he told her “Greetings.” She basically acted like she’d never heard that before and said only gentlemen say greetings. Then she had the good sense to read my profile and lit on out of there. I could have certainly taken her in an ass kicking contest. She didn’t have any feet.

Nice alphas...

SO. Dig those old skins that you couldn’t throw away out of their boxes, dust off your old shoes that made your feet look like pancakes, and come join us tonight at 8pm SLT for an Old SLchool good time!! If you have lag issues, you might need to turn particles off, but hey, that’s pretty old SLchool, too!

Meow fuckin’ meow.

They say that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result. I think I’ve reached that with these freaking cats.

My two Valentine cats had yet another generic. Then Ulaa and I got her Leprecat and my Flame cat together and had…another generic cat.

Dios mio.

Hey, I get it. Breeding cats is not going to be my new SL business. Hell, it’s not even SL fun anymore. All I ever wanted was one cat to recover the money I’ve spent and then I would gracefully retire. Instead I’ve had a succession of fairly generic diamonds and smokeys and it’s making me very [ungracefully] bitchy. So enough.

Katey Coppola from Glitterati has donated a small space for Plurkers to sell their kitties, and so I went over there tonight to drop off a few, including the two new babies I had today. The dark kitten has fire eyes, if you are looking for fire eyes. There were a few really nice cats up there when I went to look, and they seem to be at decent prices, so check it out.

Yeah, you’re right. I still have cats at home. I have my Leprecats since they were an anniversary gift. I have my pink Valentine’s cat and my Flame. And I have the two new Diamonds I got in the past few days. But 6 cats are better than 11, right? If the Leprecats don’t have a decent kitten this week, they’ll be set to non-breeder status. The V-day cat and the flame have already been set to non-breeders. That will definitely help out.

——————————–

In non-kittycats related news, I’m having a hump day party tomorrow! The theme is Fashion Disasters, so bling it UP! I want to see bling, oil, bad hair and ugly shoes! I’m even pulling the party ball out for the occasion. πŸ™‚ We haven’t had a hump day party in a long long time so I’m super excited!!

Day 176 – Party day!!

Hmm…what does this button do?

176-365

Tonight at 7pm SLT – Hump Day Party!!! Yeahhhh!! I’m excited! I’ve been fluttering around the Party Ball today touching up things.

I won’t lie – it’s going to look best if you have glow and particles enabled. But, if you’re unable to do that, it does look still bright in there even on the very lowest SL setting. As far as lighting, I like the “purplebluenight” setting that I *think* comes with the Emerald viewer. But I think sunset looks good too. At midnight, the avatars look dark and that doesn’t always make for great pics.

My parcel on Bluebonnet is closed at the moment except for the island residents & some others that are on the list because I have a landing point set and I don’t want anyone falling out of the ball since I have it phantom at the moment. LOL

I just can’t wait for the party!! I hope to see lots of you there! πŸ™‚

Day 175 – He’s a good cuddle buddy

Have you all met Nigel? He’s been living on Bluebonnet for a while now, ever since wandering home with me from where he had been living and working as a racer. He’s pretty quiet…he barely makes a peep. But whenever I need someone to just sit on while I do blog posts or anything, he lets me sit on him. I love Nigel.

175-365

I was working again on the party ball today. I want it to be very close to our original one, but I cannot find the texture I used to have in the old one!! So I guess we’ll see. LOL I cannot wait for the party. I think it’s going to be so fun! 7pm SLT, and I’ll get the SLurl out tomorrow on plurk and here, or just IM me in world and I’ll get you over there. πŸ™‚

I’m busy watching Jerseylicious now, so I have to go.

Little updates

I’ve been working tonight on setting up the area for the yard sale this weekend. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read this post. I’m excited for it! I know I will probably end up doing more buying than selling. LOL!

But this is how it looks so far. Not at ALL finished.

Setting Up

Don’t worry, the Fiesta Zone is not gone. It’s just waaaay up in the air for now. And the ice cream place is off to the side.

Tomorrow night is a BACK TO SCHOOL party at 8pm SLT. πŸ™‚ The Thorne-Darwins are being kind enough to host us, so we’ll be at the Ghambt Community Center gymnasium. πŸ˜€

I need to get back to work. πŸ™‚

It was a good week. :)

It was a pretty decent week in my little corner of SL. At least for me. If you didn’t have a good week, I’m sorry your life isn’t as awesome as mine. :-p Kidding, kidding.

But I did have a nice week, with a few exceptions [like missed cuddle times 😦 ], but the highlight of my week was most definitely Wednesday night’s party. It was a trailer park theme, with lots of country and southern rock music. Of course, my electricity went out briefly [I swear we paid the bill!] but it wasn’t a party downer. I took pics for my Snapzilla, but I’ll share a few here.

HDP 7/8/09 - Trailer Park Party

HDP 7/8/09 - Thorne-Darwins

HDP 7/8/09 - Mud Wrasslin'

HDP 7/8/09 - Freebird!!

Yeah, I gave myself a huge rear end for the party. Too much beer and corn nuts in the park. LOL

We’ve been having a little more lag than usual on the island in the past couple of days. I keep checking the top scripts and the top colliders, and honestly, nothing seems out of the ordinary. I even restarted the island on Wednesday night [although not for lag issues] and that didn’t seem to help. I’m really not sure what’s going on. I’d blame the chickens, however we’ve had way more chickens on the island before and never had this issue. I’ll blame Linden Lab. That seems to be the in thing to do.

In a rare spurt of being social last night, I had too many super strong jello shots at my friend’s house last night because it was her birthday. I really do not drink. I don’t like the taste of alcohol these days [these days being about the past 2 years] and I don’t really care for the way it makes me feel. So I’m running at about half speed today. But it was very fun, and the part that made me laugh later thinking about it is how very easily I talk about my Second Life friends. And the thing is, I don’t preface it anymore with saying “Oh, my SL friend XXXX said…” It’s simply just “My friend.” I think that’s a good thing.

Anyway, since I’m slightly hungover, I’m also starving to death, so I think it’s lunchtime. But this song has been in my head since a phone call last night, so since I haven’t done it in a while….wtf is in Ali’s head today? Here you go.

BBBC Topic for Thursday

Awesome Awesome party tonight! It was so much fun and it was great getting to meet a few of you from the challenge, along with seeing all my favorites! Everyone looked SO good and there was just color overload! You can see a bunch of pics I took in my Snapzilla account. I took a few more to my desktop, but I ended up crashing after a bit. lol

We did this last year, and so we’re doing it again. πŸ™‚
