And For Halloween I'll Be

In Indian!!!

This is one of my favorite outfits in my inventory. Now - off to trick or treat!

By the way - check out that awesome campfire - I swear it's the best in SL. Of course - I made it!! You can find it at Serendipity. 4 couples poses and 4 singles poses in it. This set is gaining notice across the grid. Makes me Happy!

It's located in the yard. And for folks who like to do things their own way - all the logs and such may be bought separately. I even have more logs with different poses scattered in the yard. I just love all the textures:))

Added 4 more places to visit.

Gloomy Sunday

Haunted Isle (I just love it when the neighbors go all out)

Haunted House and Graveyard (this haunted house felt larger than the others) Be sure to follow instructions with your settings.

And my last addition was Eternal Passions (as a small romantic spot). I was torn on this one. It's not tiny tiny..but not a whole sim either. But most important of all - it was perfect.

This weekend RL is going to takeover a bit. When I do get on, I plan to spend time with special friends...and finish a 1950s bedroom set. All these awesome places to explore are distracting me.

Is it too Long? and CSI

You see it - the links list on the right of the screen. I figured if I was going to visit something other than a Clothing Blog I would want something to keep me coming back, and for me it would be a source. A source for adventure, exploration or romance.

You guessed it - I added another 3

Haunted Halloween - just cuz it's Halloween...Let's celebrate!

Collateral Damage - I just love these kinds of places. Interactive - bring a friend - it's a hoot!

I am Legend - OMG. This is one of those places you get to and wonder why have I never heard of it? It's freakin huge! Be prepared to play:)

And on a completely different topic:

CSI - SL begins tonight. I figure 12 million people watch it. The people who know about these things (*cough*, *cough*), say 75,000 - 100,000 new players could show up in SL (or more).

The CSI audience will be helping to solve a crime...hmmm, this might be worth checking out. We (as players already in the game and not going thru CBS) will need a special HUD to gain access. Yes indeed - I will be checking this out. Their interface will look different from ours.

On a positive note, These folks will enter the game from the CBS web site and go straight to the CSI - Orientation islands. From there NY1 and NY2 will be used. Just go to Search and look for CSI - omg, the islands are breeding over there!

Things to Do

I took a little time last night and added 3 more places for folks to visit.

The Carinsoa Ballroom – I sort of stumbled into this one. Sure – no one was there so it was very private (gotta love that). The music was absolutely perfect. I wanted a date right then!!

Icarus – Why have I never heard of this place? You get there and think…why this place? Well, If your smart, you will explore. I was torn between putting this one in romance or explore.

Virtual Hallucinations – this one definitely fell into the smart category!

Did you notice I didn’t give you a lot of detail? Good – that was my intention. Go explore these things for yourself. I just love when a place is full of surprises.

btw - I make a point of not adding places with camping and sploders.

And yes - as soon as I figure out how to put the trailer directly into the blog, I will....I promise...really.

This episode will be aired this week on Oct 24th. I expect this mean lots and LOTS of newbs!

The Mentoring Thing

What a busy week this has been!

I tried to spend at least two hours each evening out doing the SL Mentor thing. I went to Ahern to help out and I learned something about new people and their arrival.

Like an idiot I was sitting in the square at Ahern offering help and smiling at all the crazy veterans of SL (and griefers) who like to hang out there. But that is not where I should have been. The square spreads out to four stations. It is within the stations themselves that newbies are dropped.

I honestly don’t think half of them were making it as far as the square before giving up. Many were naked and completely stumped about where to go and how to get there.

So if you really want to help – go to the drop points.

For almost 3 hours last night I was bombarded with their questions. I kept things simple to keep them moving. By the end of the 3 hours – I was exhausted.

The following is what I covered.

  • Do they know how to use the search
  • Give them direction. For this I gave each 2 landmarks. (like “The Free Dove for clothes, and Greenies for fun).
  • Make sure they know how to teleport.

But the most important part was to actually get them into the game. All I can do is hope a mentor is at the freebie places to help them with boxes and such.

Yes, I make sure the naked ones are dressed before sending them out into the game)

Friends and Lovers

I had a great weekend!

I actually posted some stuff under the "New Products" in the forums. Ugg - I procrastinated. Should have done it weeks ago.

I took the weekend off..yup - I did. No building at all, just lots of shopping and exploring.

You might notice all the new links on the right of this page - hey! check em out! They are all good.

You know as much as I seek a friend and lover, maybe it's just not possible in SL..or at the very least unlikely. If the friendship relationship is really strong, and the chemestry is there, should you let it turn into more? Unfortunately, one gentleman believes if we were to become lovers, our friendship would be ruined when we broke up. Wow - this floored me! I took a look into my SL past and paused.

Maybe he is right. Does this mean I should not pursue friendship with someone I want more from? Hmmm..Something to think about.

Oh, check out my awesome Halloween Treat bag. Best treat bag ever!!

What did he say??

When a friend first saw this set he only had one word to say..."Boxy" So let's make this clear,this set is not boxy. You can easily see the very subtle curves. This my friend, is a sculpted set.

This sleek, sophisticated set was very popular in the 1970s.

The gentleman's cabinet you have seen before. It has to be my favorite piece. When you get close up to it the detail work shines!

This is a great low prim set!

Freakin Happy!

Wow - I am soooo excited. My mentor application was approved. I thought someone at the Linden office must have thrown that away months ago. I think I filled out the application maybe..6 or 7 months ago.

So now I wait for the orientation class which will be soon.

But you know, even when I felt the Lindens must have forgotten my request, I still helped people. I like doing it.

I don't even know what the actual qualifications were.. but i am freakin happy!

I am doing my happy dance..yup my hands are in the air woohoo..woohoo - shimmy shimmy - woohoo..woohoo
