For the past few weeks I’ve chosen somewhat difficult memes and for next week I have something really challenging planned. Therefore, I thought that this week I would keep it short and simple. I’m going to be nosy again and ask a series of questions about how you communicate and socialize inworld, I hope you guys participate.

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your post, delete my answers and input your own. All of your answers should reflect your activity within Second Life. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so others can come by and read your answers as well!

1. Who did you speak to last inworld today?

Ambrose Steampunk

2. Who has taught you most about SL?

Not really sure, Tearsong Vaungh helped me out a lot at the start. Most the rest I googled or asked a lot of people in various groups.

3. Who do you turn to for help?

Steelhead and the Firefox group chat

4. Who is the most entertaining person on your friend list?

I have way to many entertaining people on my list to pick one

5. Do you speak to your SL friends outside of SL?

Just Ambrose, we're all having a sulk fest right now as he can't make it to OKRF this year. We may have to just go to him and invade the renfaire near him.

6. Are you part of a community or family inworld?


Proud to be a Salmon!

7. Are you usually around a lot of people or do you spend most of your time alone inworld?

A mix of both really. When exploring I usually like to do it alone, that way I don't have to wait on someone to go to a certain area of wherever I am at. But I do go to events and there I like to be around people.

No word yet on who I get to dress as for Disneybound. They are a bit backlogged.

Kinda scared and curious what next weeks meme from Strawberry will be considering what she said.

Oh and here is another shot of the FABULOUS Mer tail and items I am wearing above. It's mesh and has these neat arm wings

pose is from SERENADE Deluxe Mystic Mermaid Pack

Fuzzy Wuzzy is a crayon from the same contest last weeks was.

My Ren Faire has one last weekend, This week was the big three day Memorial day weekend one, Running Saturday - Monday. It's usually the last weekend so having one more weekend now is kinda messing with my head.

Also I have a big dentist appointment later today, yay digging into my gums! Not sure how that will affect the Disneybound challenge.

I'll do the Strawberry meme Thursday if I have the mental capacity to do so.

Should be back to exploring Secodlife as usual soon!

So, this week we have a critter character again, Zazu the Red Billed Hornbill from the Lion King.

When I saw who it was I knew exactly how to do this one. And that was to do a "my version" of what the actor who plays him on Broadway wears. *link* Which is a Derby and a kinda stylistic zoot suit. I opted to find a tailed top and baggy pants. But the Derby was a must!

The thing I am standing in front of is on my new neighbor's plot in Nevermoor. She made it herself and the plot is just lovely.

Wild Blue Yonder, besides being named for a line from the Air Force Theme song, can be found in the 120 color boxes starting in 2003. It also got it's name in a contest to celebrate the new 100 box. Which has apparently been upgraded to 120 since then o.O

Now, as for why its just a single image this week, again, well, it's been a bit of a crazy week, with storms, I lost a front tooth and other crap happening. I just did not feel up to it! Which is also why I didn't do Strawberries Teach me something meme where you created a tutorial or taught something.

Don't expect much next week either. Three day weekend at the faire as we're open on Memorial day!

Have to hand it to the ladies of Style Minions, They have made one hard challenge! I thought it would be easy to do but then they go and toss in characters like Dory, Marie and the one from today.. the evil Moray eels from Little Mermaid, Flotsam and Jetsam.

I looked todays image a while the HECK do I do this? So I got to thinking about the characters. How they are the minions of Ursala, delivering proposals. Very gangster/business like.

So I went looking for a sleek outfit that was also business like. This dress by Rebel hope fit the bill in my brain. I added some shell jewelry to show the undersea aspect, a sleek hairstyle with a touch of yellow to represent the Eel's glowing eyes. And a glowing pose for magic. And here is the results!

I pondered doing a second shot in some sort of sleek cat suit as well, there are TWO eels, but decided one was enough.

I am having a SERIOUS case of brain fuzz and can hardly focus on things. Thus why I am so late with this late post and why it is just one image. I need a nap or something, I blame it being faire month.

Anyway, Big Dip O Ruby is, like last week, another of the Metallic FX colors! That, was not planned.

I think we all do things in our lives that we’re not incredibly proud of, but we still do them out of habit or just because it’s something we feel strongly about and don’t necessarily always want everyone to know about them. One of my real life guilty confessions is my obsessive love for Golden Girls reruns. I cannot resist them. If I know they will be on, I will drop everything and grab some munchies and just sit and enjoy them. Yes, I know, I need help.

Anyhow, I thought it would be fun to reveal some of our second life guilty confessions. I’m going to share five of mine, but I’m not putting a number on this meme as I know not everyone will want to admit many so just share whatever you like. However, you don’t need to go overboard on the sharing (like confession bear here), cuz you know, I don’t want anyone going to Second Life jail or anything after doing this meme! (Is there a Second Life jail?)

Meme instructions: Share 1 to 10 of your top second life guilty confessions. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s post so others can come by and read your answers as well!

Lets see what I can come up with for this

1. My clothing folder is meticulously separated by several factors. My object folder, while it started to be like that, is not so well organized. I blame having to find a place to rez stuff instead of just wearing it. Landscaping objects and buildings can be big.

2. I confess to watching a few SL fug groups on Flikr. I never post photos, but I do look. Sometimes I question if something should be there..but a lot...I judge..cause...oye. It's such a train wreck.

3. I also read SL secrets and generally have NO idea what is going on in any of the secrets. But many times I wish I did.

4. I have a love/hate relationship with the fashion part of this blog. I started just showing off PLACES in Secondlife, That's what I love to do most in Secondlife, explore the fabulous builds. But I didn't want to look bad by not telling who made what I am wearing so I got more into fashion. But at times I resent doing that. And while I love getting free items from creators I am not sure I'd want to be on a blogger review list.

5. Sometimes I regret not having a "human" avatar. Mostly because of not being able to wear some items due to my prim parts, like rigged mesh hair. But despite that, I just can not see myself as anything but a feline for anything more then an hour or two. It's just not me.

The temptation this week to, as Turlock put it, "slap a bow on my head and hid my boobs" was EXTREMELY high. Marie is from the Aristocats, and a fluffy white kitten wearing a pink bow in her hair and about her neck.

But upon thought I decided to just play it the way it was shown and also I remembered this pretty Dress Schadenfreude had at the current round of COLLABOR88. I went with a piano pose as Marie sings the song Scales And Arpeggios with her brother Berlioz playing on a grand piano.

So, there we go, a cat "dressed" as a cat!

This weeks crayon is from the 2001 specialty pack called Metallic FX, and you can still get these shiny metallic colors in stores!

I chose this color especially for Turlock in honor of his recent birthday. As with the place we went for the photo, A green Lantern Themed sim. Home of the Largest in world Lantern Corps group who do the Lanterns for Life camp sight for Relay for Life every year.

As his computer is having issues *a bad memory stick* we couldn't really explore it so he just found the main lantern battery and we posed in front of it.

I am very pleased that the outfit I picked, turned out to look kinda superheroy in the setting and with my chosen pose.

Oh..not doing Strawberry's meme this week. I can't write a Haiku to save my life :P

The ladies over at Style minions Declared this week of Disney bounding as couples week! So I got to dress Adar up.

Note, Fezzes may be cool, but Adar does NOT look good in one. Best leave the Fez wearing to The Doctor.

Had the post already, it was from the Hollywood event, so isn't available anymore to my knowledge. Had the hair as well, which I bet is going to be the go too hair for a lot of entries this week! The rest of mine and Adar's outfits fell together after some poking about the marketplace.

I really love this shot. A lot! Very romantic!

This weeks crayon came out in 1997 as part of a special set called Pearl Brite crayons, that all well, had a pearlescent sheen to them.

I'm still in Fantasy Faire, and swamped with getting ready for OKRF this weekend so I just got a quick photo. The gown is one I picked up AT fantasy faire though it is not the color that the FF exclusive was in. Hoping to be back to blogging normal next week. But don't hold your breath on that! Busy weekend and a three day stint at the ren faire!

Happy May Everyone!
