For those of you who are new to this blog, I'm Em and sometimes I have a hard time NOT talking about my real damn life in this Second Life blog, but in the grand scheme of things, maybe that's a good thing. I don't know.
I'm currently en route to Tennessee (from Arizona), and WOO HOO, these Marriott Residence Inns have great wireless Internet connection!
So I log on tonight after a long hot day of . . . well, packing my car and a truck and driving three blocks to a hotel (we're running a little behind, oops) . . . and what do I find but . . .
ANOTHER FREAKIN' GRIDWIDE HUNT????
Oh lawdy! Yes, I'm doin' it, so no, I shouldn't be beeeeechin' about it but, I don't know. My only comment is "sheesh."
That aside, I've learned a lot about myself during my short time on the road, mainly that I cannot poop in front of my cats (who have been sequestered in my hotel bathroom).
Um, let's change the subject:
Hey, you got it wrong, Kermit. It is OH SO EASY being green!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm one of 8 million people running around in this gift from Nardcotix and no, I don't know if it was a subscribo gift or in-store gift or what. You can put your Sherlock Holmes hat on and figure it out if you so desire. I know you can! I have faith in you!
The necklace is by Alienbear for Nardcotix. The sunglasses are from Pacadi and sorry, I have no clue where that store is or how I got those glasses (can't find it in SL's STELLAR search engine). I'm assuming they were free because, as in real life, I rarely spend much money on sunglasses because I tend to break and lose them.

"Dear Obscene, Late last year I took a two-month break from SL during the holidays. After I returned and caught up on the blogs, I learned -- with much heartbreak -- that you gave out some cool hunt prizes and gifts while I was gone. Since I've spent a fortune in your stores AND referred my friends AND constantly given you awesome play here, um, could I please have a folder of the stuff I missed during the months of October through early January? Thanks!! Love, Emerald Wynn"
(yeah right, like that'd happen. sigh.)
Oh shoot, I promised you some awkward moments!!!
I'm traveling with my parents, which is awkward enough anyway. My mom needed to use my laptop to check her email. She turned it on and this blog was up on the browser. She said, "What is this? Why are you reading this . . . . is this a cartoon character? Who is Emerald? Are you reading cartoons online?"
Later my dad walked by just as I was snapping that close-up shot up there.
Of course he just saw some boobs on my screen.
"What the hell are you doing?" he asked.
"Playing a game!" I said as innocently as possible.
He watched over my shoulder as I walked around Eolande's looking for Flower No. 14 in the Most Random Hunt Ever. (I'm not making fun -- that's what it's called.)
"How do you win this game?" he said.
"By walking around and finding cool clothes for this chick on my screen" was my smooth answer.
"My God, that is a stupid game," he said and wandered off (thank God) to find ESPN on the hotel TV.
Speaking of hunts, thanks for the hint:
. . . but your grammar teacher would smack you up for that.
And I still can't find the damn flower in that store.
Here's a part of my blog that I like to call "Cool AV, Man!"
COOL AV, MAN!
This dude's name was Chesto, and I probably should have asked him if I could stealth-take his pic. Oops.
Speaking of cool people, check out the video my friend Noelyci made to raise diabetes awareness in and out of SL:
And naw, I'm not an Insulin Pump pin-up girl. That was a purely unselfish plug right there.
Damn, I'm getting sleepy. Hope everyone is happy and safe.
