Welcoming in Winter

Tel and I (well mostly Tel) have finally finished the sim ready for winter and the holiday season. Being that it's the start of December tomorrow I'm glad we have the place all sorted. I'm so thankful to my hubby for working so hard. I was able to get some pictures last night and, of course, everyone is welcome to visit at anytime.

As always, I get my little garden to work on. I finally got to use the sled I got as a hunt gift at the beginning of this year. I got a matching gazebo for the snow scene and it's slightly less busy as the other two gardens which adds to the silent winter landscape.






Rest of the photos are of the Tel's parts of the sim.








If you travel to the end of the sim you'll find a snowman and a post that will take you up to the skybox I made up. We decided not to put too much decoration in the main house so I made up a little festive skybox up above the sim.




I felt bad leaving the meeroos outside on an empty sky platform so they're inside in the warm for the holidays.




Monday was mine and Tel's one year anniversary. It's been over a year since we decided to take our relationship to more then friends. Seeing as we pretty much celebrated a few weeks back and my time on SL was very limited that night, we ended up just having a nice night on Tuesday. We were forced off our sim by a rolling restart and ended up on random sim where we watched a very cheesy movie at a drive in. We got caught up in a random group convo with friends and had a generally nice evening.


He gets the girl and escapes the island just so you know.

It's insane to think that Tel and I have been together for a whole year. So much has happened to use during these last 12 months. We've had our highs, lows and struggles. But it goes to show that SL relationships can work. So here's to one year and many years to come. Love you sweetie <3

L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N

I chose this title from a song by one of my favourite bands. Seems to be in my head a lot recently.



The beginning of the week started on a sad note. A friend I know from Club Industry sadly past away in RL. I didn't know her all to well but did know she was a wonderfully fun lady to be around. Obviously those who have been at CI and the Industrial scene longer then me knew her more closely. But it is true when they say that the relationships we make in SL are just as strong as those we make in RL. It is strange and very sad to think you will never see that person log in again. I've heard that those who knew her more personally are arranging a memorial for her where we can all pay our respects and celebrate her life.

I finally had some time to take some footage of the haunted house. Tel really needs the prims for building and for getting the sim ready for Christmas (which, if I had a choice, would be up NOW). I was also able to get a few final pictures for the place. It really is a wonderful little set up. I think I'll make the video more into a promotional video for Tel's builds then just a video about a scary house.






In RL I joined a Bisexual group that bring together other bisexuals and we basically talk about...well...being bisexual. It is true that there is a thing as biphobia where people, straight or gay, will judge you or discriminate you just because you like both genders. It was interesting to be in a group who where so open about it all and talked about their stories. I thought I was the only one who felt like bisexuals do get a little ridiculed by society. Being called "greedy". I've only been with 4 guys in my life and have been single RL for 8 months! How is that greedy? I do actually get generally annoyed when someone refers to me as gay...because really I'm not! I'm bi! I like men and women. That's who I am. Don't refer to me as gay just because it's easier for you!

I feel like I'm waiting for this month to be over. I have my first appointment at the gender identity clinic on the 22nd and I just want it to be NOW! I want it to be Christmas NOW! I just like Christmas. Heh, I already had my christmas decorations up by this time last year. I wonder if Tel will let me have a little christmas skybox where I can star decorating where I can be all christmassy and jolly while he can go "bah humbug" down stairs. :P

This has come out a rather ranty blog post. Oh well. I'm gonna look at Christmas things and videos of kittens.

1 Year

The title counts for two things. On Monday the 24th it had been a year since Tel and I first met. Though we didn't start dating a good month later and had a tinsy bit of drama between that period it is great that we've got this far together. Something that most exclusively SL relationships never seem to reach.

Tel had mentioned the other day that he couldn't find any good 20's/30's clubs where we could go to listen to something other then industrial and dub-step. Not that we don't like those, just sometimes you need a change. And we haven't recently been to hotlantas due to the guest and staff saying some pretty unpleasant remarks.
I went snooping round found a place called The Vault which promised 20's,30's,40's and 50's. There wasn't much happening when I arrived but was promised a full line up come 6pm SLT. I tp'd Tel in and we were just catching the end of a live singer. Though she was ok she was slightly amateur compared to most singers I have seen on SL. When the DJ kicked in though we ended up having a really good time, good music with a good mixture of everything really. Plus some nice, welcoming peeps with good conversation. All in all it was a really good night and a nice way to celebrate our anniversary(ish).



Also for over 1 year now I've been keeping this blog. I know that it sometimes can be either a gooey love note to Tel or a big emo rant but at the end of the day I'm writing this blog for myself so I can keep a note of all my happenings in SL. I don't update as much as I like to any more but hopefully this blog will keep going for more years to come.

My little boy Sebby will also being turning one from the 4th of November. Both of my boys still run around the garden quite happily. Though they are just a bunch of moving, well scripted prims I love them to bits. So happy birthday my little Sebastian!


Onto some very good news! *DEAD CHUFFED* now has a new location at Franzi's store! I'm so grateful to him for giving me a part of his parcel so I can keep the shop alive. I've placed all the couples poses in vendors where the pose balls can be rezzed if you'd like to try them out. The vendor is really easy to set up and for L$99 for a copy/mod was a complete bargin!


Three vendors which store the male/male poses, female/female poses and male/female poses. All with demo poseballs that can be rezzed to try them out!


All the single poses are on display though some may have to be taken down to make room for the new winter and christmas poses coming soon.


Everything can still be found on Market place. The Leo strut pose has been made L$1 instead of free on the store but you can still get the pose free by visiting the inworld store.


Next door you'll be able to fine all the amazing builds and d├ęcor Franzi has to offer.



Here's a aerial view. There's a rezzing area of Franzi's building and also a cute little area for Endy's, River's and Franzi's meeroos.

I'll round up this blog with some final photos of halloween. Happy November everyone! For me it'll soon be Bonfire night and for the yanks it'll be Thanksgiving. We also have 11/11/11 where we remember those who died in services to their country. But pretty soon (maybe a little too soon) it'll just be Christmas Christmas CHRISTMAS! 


Tel was taking part in a photo shoot for Alayni's new gallery. It's an Alice in Wonderland theme and here's a little white rabbit :>


I messed about on Alayni's posing stoof while they did the shoot.


*Sigh* Being this fabulous is so damn hard!


Tel bought himself and I these awesome Hellraiser avies so to look the part this Halloween. I'm Chatterer while Tel made an awesome Pinhead.


I don't think any saw this except me but I turned an animation on which did..well..this to me. I didn't relog so I was like this for the rest of the night. Made me chuckle!
