Episode 1077: The One Where I Spam You

There’s a lot going on, y’all!!

TODAY AT 1PM SLT!!!!!! The Shoe Expo fashion show!!!! My adorable Sophia is walking in it, and I think she might be a little nervous, so please come out and sit with me so we can cheer her on AND see some pretty shoes!!

Speaking of the Shoe Expo, there is a RAFFLE going on!! You have until tomorrow to buy your ticket and OMG YOU GUYS. The prizes for the winner? SO GOOD. You can see the list here on the blog but sponsors were still being added last night, so this list is in no way complete. Let me tell you just a few of the prizes if you don’t have time to go to the page. A fatpack of choice from Phoenix Rising AND the opportunity to be a model on one of the vendors, which means a very professional photo from Skyhawke Sodwind. The unfurnished Wisteria house and a $5000L gift card from The Loft. A $2000L gift card from Musashi-Do. A fatpack of the Long Boots from J’s. A $2500L gift card from MechanizedLife, so you can get that FilterCam I’ve been using a lot lately! Three fatpacks of Tiny Bird hair. And so much more!!

What do you have to do? Go to the Shoe Expo and look for the GREEN ornaments. They look like this:

Pay $1000L and buy your ticket! The more tickets you buy, the better your chances of winning, and of course all the money goes to Toys For Tots. With over $50,000L worth of prizes, it’s a fabulous deal and you’re helping out a really awesome charity.

And in my last little bit of spam, don’t forget that my island is hosting the SL Bloggers Meet-Up for December! The party will be on the 13th at 12pm SLT. If you are a designer who would like to offer a prize or two for us to give away during the party, please contact me or the SL Blogger Event Coordinator, Tymmerie Thorne. In the past we’ve gotten anything from gift cards to various stores to just fun things like backpacks and other accessories. It’s always a lot of fun! πŸ™‚

I need to start figuring out what to wear to the fashion show, so that’s all the spam I’ve got for you at the moment! πŸ™‚

I’m on a boat! Or a kayak, whatever.

In the physical world, I’m stuck at home today. Actually, I’ve been stuck at home all weekend due to the fact that my brakes are grinding. Yeah, they HAD been squealing. But now…they’re not. I know, I know. I just figured I had some time. :-p But since my RLBF hasn’t allowed me to drive anywhere [except today when we dropped my car off at the repair place], I’ve been in a pretty foul mood all weekend. I probably should apologize to some people since I’ve been short with pretty much everyone who has encountered me, but if you can’t be moody with your friends, who can you possibly be moody with?

Last night Sophia & Skyhawke showed me their new kayaking stuff that they bought for their island. It’s no big secret that in the physical world, I’m NOT outdoorsy and I’m NOT very athletic. I have never once been camping. I even asked to stay out in my backyard when I was a kid, and my mom thought I was nuts. Sky is, however, one of those crazy Ironman athletic types who just this past summer paddled for miles and miles and miles down a river in a kayak. I tease and call him and Sophia “hobos” that go sleep outside and eat beans that they cook in a tin can, but I completely admire them for their love of the outdoors. Even if I do think that they look like this while out there:

I kid, I kid.

They said I could come over and use their kayak stuff whenever I wanted, so late last night when I was supposed to be taking blog pics for my review blog, I wandered back over and decided to paddle around. It was really so peaceful and I got to think while I paddled around enjoying the scenery.

Kayaking

I love the water

More kayaking

After I finished my ride, I was looking for a good place for a full body shot and then I discovered something. They were holding out on me!!

They were holding out!

So naturally I had to go skydiving. Or parachuting. Whatever.

Floating

Although I know that SL kayaking is probably nothing at all like the real thing, I did really enjoy it and will probably be bouncing over to Sacred often to paddle around. In many ways, it’s better for me than the real thing because if this had been in the physical world, I would have probably only gotten slightly away from the dock before my arms started hurting, or I’d get my big butt stuck in the kayak, or I would have rolled over and went head first into the water.

But at least I probably wouldn’t have done wheelies on my head.

Sophia...doesn't kayak so well.

Probably.

Soopamoddle!!!

So guess who got to be a model for Truth again?

GUESS!!!!

Oh yeah, it’s ME!

And some others. :-p

Ok, so a few months ago Truth Hawks had hired Skyhawke Sodwind of Sacred Studio to do some photos for the store. Because well, if you’re going to ask for awesome pictures, Sky is pretty much the only person you should ask. Just sayin’. But of course, that was a long time ago, and he’s been just getting better and better at hair, so it was time for new pictures! Five models were chosen, and if I hadn’t been asked to model again, I think I would have cried and burned all my Truth hair in protest. Well. Maybe I would have burned one or two. The old ones. You know. The ones I never wear.

As usual, we were under strict rules not to blog the pics until they were given to Truth and placed in the store. Since they are there now, I get to share! I already shared once on my review blog, so you’ve probably already seen mine. If you’re not reading my review blog…why not? But I got all the pictures today so you can see all of them the right way, not just on the wall. πŸ™‚

Truth Ad - Meeeeee!

I’m not allowed to say how one of the models went Diva and demanded a new photo after feeling like she was the ugly cousin of the group, but if you go to the store and you see another photo up with someone in a green jacket…

It was really a lot of fun, and big thanks to Truth for allowing me to be up on his wall, and to Skyhawke for doing an absolutely gorgeous job as usual!

Now for the Truth!

I have been dying to blog this for WEEKS, but I wasn’t allowed to, which really made me antsy. LOL

A few weeks ago, Truth Hawks hired Skyhawke Sodwind & Sophia Harlow of Sacred Studio to do some portraits for his store. I was chosen as one of the models for the big photoshoot, along with Sophia, Sai Pennell, Sehra Kauffman, Pumpkin Saenz, and Aradia Dielli. I was soooo excited!! Not just because hey, everytime I go shopping there, I get to see a big picture of myself, but because I would get to do it with some of my best friends.

Skyhawke did an absolutely AMAZING job with the photos, just as we all knew he would. I’m telling you, if you haven’t had your photo done by him, you are missing out BIG TIME. He’s wonderful! Out of 11 photos in my profile, 7 of them have been done by Sky. He is just that damn good.

So none of us were allowed to blog about the shoot or anything until the pics were delivered and placed in the store. This drove me crazy, as I’m sure it did the others, too. But today with his new releases, our pics are up!!!!

Outside the store – Sophia, Aradia, and Pumpkin.

Truth 1

Inside – Sai, Sehra, and me.

Truth 2

Me again, right by the ponytails. I’m wearing the “Alicia” hair in my picture. Pumpkin, Sehra, and Aradia are also wearing their namesake hairs!

Truth 3

It was just a really really fun experience! Does this mean I can add “Soopamoddle” to my resume now? LOL!! I’m just so happy that I had a chance to do this because it’s something I’ll always remember.

I’m sure all the photos will be put on the Sacred website soon, and I’m sure the girls will blog their own pictures, but I wanted to do mine here.

My Truth model picture

Be sure to stop over at Truth and check out the photos, and pick up some of his new work. And then make your appointment at Sacred for your own super fantastic picture!

80s Night At Sacred

Yipes, I’m so close to have not gotten in a post for Saturday. LOL I’m trying to post every day, if I didn’t mention it. But I went out tonight with a friend and then as soon as I got home, it was time for 80s Night at Sacred. πŸ™‚

I’m actually in more of a pensive mood than a party mood, but I have had a great time tonight. The party is still going strong, but I wanted to post a few pics and wrap up this night.

I didn’t know what to wear, but the fanny pack & ring-pop worked it out.

80s Night - Me!

Aisuru looks so cute always!

80s Night -  Aisuru!

Lola, Pumpkin, and Rainbow Brite Nikki!

80s Night - Lola, Pumpkin, Nikki

Sophia looking hot…and a little bit tough!

DJ Skyhawke – he put together over 14 hours of music! :-O

Cas, Elora, Lola, Nikki, and Bon getting down to the 80s tunes!

80s Night - Dance dance dance

Pumpkin trying to sex Sophia up. It didn’t work. :-p

80s Night - Pumpkin...no. LOL

It was just a normal week…

I had thrown a bunch of pics into my Flickr thinking I had an actual post for them, but then it turned out, I didn’t. But I like to share pictures, so here we go. πŸ™‚

Last week we had a semi-group outing to a go-karts place. It was SO fun! I suck at driving, preferring more to just go fast. Here’s a pic of the Harlow-Sodwinds in their duo car. Lucky Sophia, I had to drive myself!! Look at Skyhawke’s face. It cracks me up!

The Sodwinds racing

And this is why I shouldn’t be allowed to drive myself.

Flipped

Speaking of the Harlow-Sodwinds, we were out at their photography studio one evening and I snapped this picture of them. I tried to be all fancy like Sky and doctor it up, but I suck. πŸ™‚

Sodwinds on the wall

After Sehra’s rezday party, Pumpkin and I went to go pick up our decorations. Wanna know the truth to why Pumpkin’s humping the floor? I’ll never tell… πŸ˜‰

Pumpkin humpkin. LOL

We went to visit Aisuru one evening and I couldn’t resist climbing all over her rainbow thing. It’s fun!

Rainbow peeking

Sometimes I pretend to be the receptionist at Sacred. And sometimes I just dance on the desk. They seem to put up with me either way.

Dancing receptionist

Sophia and me on Industrial Night last Saturday at Sacred. We look hot!

Industrial night

Pumpkin, Sophia, and me jamming out on someone’s piano. Pumpkin says she knows the people, so that was good enough for me. LOL

Pianists

And last but not least…. Sophia staring at her husband as he pwns us all and becomes a very pretty girl. I don’t think I’m supposed to show this picture. I bet I get fired for this. LMAO!!

Skylina

The beauties of my life

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to show this photo. I’m lazy lazy. LOL

It would be near impossible for us to ever get an entire group shot. We’re all over the globe and have such different schedules. So we were totally lucky the other night to get 10 of us online at the same time. We got over to Sacred Studio so Skyhawke could do a group photo for us. I have to say, it came out AMAZING and it’s currently my desktop wallpaper. πŸ™‚

The group - some, anyway!

Click on it to go view it big in Flickr, because it’s just so lovely.

From left to right: Elora, Tristan, QueenKellee, Aisuru, Sophia, Sehra, Sai, me, Nikki, and Pumpkin.

I’ve said it before, but LOOK at them. Don’t I have the most beautiful group of friends ever? If you’re able to call any of them your friend, consider yourself extremely blessed.

Big thanks to Skyhawke for putting up with us while taking our picture. I know it couldn’t have been easy. LOL!!
