Insert Catchy Title Here

Just goofing around with Torley's Windlight settings this morning. How could I have not downloaded these sooner?

I like night time pictures, but it felt weird to not have my facelight on, lol.

This one made me think of lazy rainy days.

Either that sunset is really bright, or something behind me blew up, lol.

Something tells me I'm going to waste a lot of time playing with my new settings, lol.

Love Thursday

My post for this weeks Love Thursday will be short and sweet.

I love kisses...kissing and being kissed is probably the best feeling in the world, if it's done right. Please don't slobber on me, or try to shove a tongue down my throat right out of the gate. I love soft, warm kisses. I love soft lips, and most of all I love a lot of smaller kisses as opposed to one that might last too long.
Yes, I'm complicated and picky, but when it comes to kisses, it has to be just right, or else nothing else falls into place. XOXO

I <3 Artilleri!

It all started with a trip to the Sand Shack to buy some flip flops. That's all I planned on doing, just a quick trip there and back. I had no idea the store was on the Artilleri sim, so once I got there I had to look around and fell in love! I wouldn't say my style is anywhere close to retro, but I loved just about everything I saw, and had to go through all the houses and sit or click on everything to play with, lol.The flamingos were looking at me like I was crazy.

I think the flamingo was stalking me, lol.

No flamingos in sight here, just me, a book, and time to kill.

This pic makes me wish my RL vacation from work had involved some lazy days lying around on a beach somewhere. *sigh* Maybe next time....
Oh, and I did eventually get the flip flops I came for in the first place, lol.

Random Stuff

It's been a long weekend, and I've been up to a whole lot of nothing as far as SL goes....I guess I haven't been feeling it the past few days. I thought I'd end up spending my time off from RL work here, but when there's no one online to talk to, you can only grab so many freebies, lol. My poor inventory is already full of things I might never wear, but I keep getting them just in case I might want/need them down the road somewhere. I see there are a few hunts going on, and this is my reaction:

That's me screaming *NOOOOOO*, btw...even though I look kind of happy, lol. I'm tempted to do at least one of them just for something to do, but I know once I start I'll only do a few before I get bored. Call me lazy, but I'd rather wait for one of the blogs I read to post about a really good gift before I go get it, lol. Well, lazy and then the fact that between RL work and trying to get some sleep, my time here is pretty limited these days.

Summer is here again, and I'm going to make myself get more sleep. For awhile there I was up late (like 3 or 4 am) and getting up after a few hours (like 2 or 3) and going all day, then doing the same thing the next night. Not good. For awhile it was Zyngo, then it was dancing till the wee hours, then just up doing random stuff. Now that the chickens are dead, I don't know what will keep me up late...but as usual, I'm sure I'll find something. :)

Right now RL is calling, and as much as I'd love to stay in world, sometimes I just have to get up and answer. XOXO

Nude but not Crude

Ok, here is my contribution to the blogger challenge that Marnix came up with. It took me awhile to find the right pose and the right place to run around nude, but I think it turned out pretty well!

Some fluffy clouds would have been perfect for this pic, but I can never seem to get them right with my windlight settings. Seeing pics like this makes me so wish I wasn't landlocked in RL...I could use a day relaxing at the beach right about now!

R.I.P. Little Chickies

My babies lasted about a week before I decided to try and move them. Silly me, I attached them to my hands, and instead of dropping them, I detached. They went into my inventory, where they died....I'm presuming from the weight of all my junk, lol.

Poor little chickens, they never knew what hit them. :/

I <3 My Curves!

There has been some talk lately on a few of the blogs I read about a store owner wanting models with a certain look, and very very specific on the size of the models. We're talking leg sliders set all the way to the right, and the chest sliders all the way to the left, lol. It got me to thinking, even though this is SL, do some people think those of us with *normal* body shapes don't look good? Are we all supposed to be running around with supermodel stick-thin bodies? It took me awhile to find just the right shape, and I am totally happy with it. It's not too thick, not too thin, and I usually look good in the clothes I decide to wear.

Then I got to thinking about RL, and how magazines and television seem to push that skinnier is sexier. You can't get away from it, it's everywhere, and sadly, a lot of younger girls seem to think that's the norm. I see a lot of teenagers that are super thin, and hear normal sized girls saying things like "I'm so fat", etc, etc. Not that I've never said stuff like that before, but I'm a grown woman, and I know that women have curves, and I'm ok with that. I don't always love my body, and often see every flaw when I look in the mirror, but I'm also comfortable enough in my own skin to like the curves I have. Yes, I could lose a few (ok, 20) pounds, but if I never do, I'm ok with that too. Would I like to have the body of my avi and never have to exercise or have plastic surgery? Um...that would be a yes, but that's just wishful thinking, lol.

So to all of you *normal* sized avatars, embrace your curviness both in RL and SL. No one is perfect, and even though we all have what we might consider flaws, someone loves you regardless, and sees you as perfect in their eyes. XOXO
