I can bring home the bacon (and so can you)



I'm at a loss for words these days, here and everywhere else.

I've tried to write this blog post a million times and I keep nodding off in the middle of it.

Here's what I want to say, in shortish blasts, because I am officially GIVING UP ON PROSE for the day and possibly the week.


Agent Orange currently has that sizzlin', posin' frying pan (pictured at top) in its Midnight Mania board. That gray dot in that photo up there is another pose ball, in case you have a friend who wants to get fried with you. If you don't feel like messing with the MM board, this pan sells for 75L in the store.


Speaking of fried:

Dear Jezbell Nitely, please stop spamming all my groups with your eye-frying misspelled announcements, IN ALL CAPS NONETHELESS, about your "free skins" and other foogly stuff at your place of business. I tried on the free skin you sent to Vain. It makes me look like a low-budget cartoon character:


OK, that was mean. Contrary to what the Cult of Lemania tells me every day (yes, still), I DO have a heart. I DO I DO I DO! So if you want to check out Jezbell's store Indulge — where everything is outrageously priced (as in $1000L dresses) and just as outrageously spelled — and decide for yourself, here's the SLurl. I still smell a rip-off artist though.

Hey, she also sells $2300L "prim babbys":


*screams and runs*

Anyway . . .

I have never been more relieved to get back in my own (Misty in Glam by League) skin:


WOW — what a difference a skin makes!

That Bozena hair in black is my current love affair. It's this month's Subscribo gift from Dark Mouse. Designer Mouse Mimistrobell is so damn talented. When it comes to SL jewelry, I am loyal to four designers, end of story. She's one of them. In that photo, I'm wearing her new release, Flowers on Fire (in Copper), $200L.


I got more "please please please don't start blogging about chickens" IMs and notes after my last post. Aw, I'll try really hard not to. They consume a lot of my SL life these days though, mainly because I have a new goal and that's to open up a stall at a farmer's market, sell some eggs and chickens, and thus proclaim myself an "SL business owner." Woot!

One day I can rock thoughtfully in my rocking chair and hopefully tell my prim 'grandbabbys,' "Yes dearies, when I was in Second Life, I was a blogger, a model AND a business owner. Oh what a wild time it was!"

My favorite chicken Walter died yesterday and I was surprised by how very, very sad I was. He "lag-walked" into outer space and promptly got returned to my Lost and Found folder, dead. He wasn't even shopping at Stiletto Moody or anything like that. He was just sitting in his pen, minding his own little chickie business when suddenly WHOOOOSH, gone. I bought a Walter the Second, but he's not the same shade of baby blue and he doesn't really fill the Walter-shaped void that's in my life now. *sniff*

Aside from the "please don't mention chickens again" pleas, I actually got some requests for more pictures of not-the-sharpest-crayon-in-the-coop Chicken Meara, so here you go kiddies:


Laugh. YES, I tried rotating her in Edit. She just flips upside-down again. She and Buck Rogers are an awesome couple though. Their eggs are pink and green, right out of the old-school "Preppy Handbook" that was so popular in the '80s. (You younguns won't get that reference.)

Those mother-bleepin' chickens are so damn primmy when you have a million of them that I had to remove my purple Victorian beast of a house and replace it with the cute low-prim cottage that was the free gift from The Sea Hole during the Go Fly a Kite hunt.

Then I had to put up a monster eyesore of a chicken coop. So sadly, I took the winter wonderland down for a while. But I found some free rain on XStreet HERE, so I was at least able to keep the weather theme going:


If you don't have an XStreet account and you want some rain, holler at me. It's full-perm. I'll give you some of mine.


The inside of that cottage is quirky and very Emerald Wynn. Too bad I have no prim allowance left for furniture. But while you're looking at the quirk, check out this outfit:


LOL. Yeah, it's raining in there. Oops.

I liked the snow better.

That Ashbury outfit is a current group gift from Spork. It's free to join the group. Those Coco Ankle Wrap Wedges with the dreaded prim feet are a Creators Stamp Rally 2009 prize. I'm not going to try to explain CSR to you. It's all at this Web site HERE. There's even a little comic strip at the bottom of the page for people with zero attention span.

I love CSR. Fun times. I'm getting about five more cards stamped. And buying something freaky at Vooner while I'm at it.

As long as we're talking about freeness -- not freenis -- and XStreet, today was one of those days where I spent long periods of time browsing the free stuff on XStreet. Besides the rain, a Japanese Beachhouse, a shooting star fountain and a box of nature sounds, I also found this cool free 10-prim treehouse (click HERE):


Very nice. At only 10 prims, I'll probably be living in it soon. Then I can at least put a couch down.

This post is still boring. I gots no blog mojo this week. But at least I gave it a shot!

I'll close with a token "Cleaning out My Inventory — YIKES!" photo:


Oh lordy.

I would just like to note that, unlike her Chicken counterpart, Avatar Meara is quite intelligent and does not spend more time on her back than she does on her feet, despite what certain douchebag ex-boyfriends like to claim. Thank you.

Em, I love you. Can I be your #1 Fangirl and like, stalk you and stuff and leave you notecards full of bad poetry proclaiming my everlasting devotion to you?

*dies of shame in between bouts of tear-inducing laughter*

Emerald Wynn said...

LMAO - no wonder she lays so many eggs, Meara.

Marnix Malifozik said...

If you ever want a borry of my chicken colours to breed some other interesting flavours, neighbour, just say the word.

We could meet at the border.

Evangeline Miles said...

I'm so sorry, but I'm completely your newest fan girl. Your last two posts have made me lol so hard. You have a really lovely tone to your writing, and it tickles me pink. More, more!

Emerald Wynn said...

(OH MY GAWD, it's Evangeline Miles!!!)

*Em faints in her giant pile of Evie's Closet dresses*

I'm not worthy. Seriously. But thank you so much!

And hello Marnix, my new neighbor! It was nice to see you this morning! I look forward to swapping chickens with you for breeding experiments! And please do not cam into my cottage while I'm naked. Thank you! :D

<3. that is all

Chestnut Rau said...

Remember when Hamlet said SL needs achievement levels? Well if blogging had achievement levels your blog would get the gold. Seriously I love your writing. Even when you think you have nothing to say you crack me up.

Amie Adamski said...

What is with all the scary pictures lately, trying to give everyone nightmares LOL-I think nice prim babies are scary but those

That new house is cute, I like the wallpaper. I probably have it somewhere in my inventory. I just got rid of 90% of stuff that I had kept from the POE hunt, I have no clue what I was thinking. I probably should take pictures of my I got this as a noobie stuff.

Aww poor chicken Meara must have a few screws loose.

Marnix Malifozik said...

I promise there will be no camming into your house. But you better warn me when you're nekkid just so that I know to avoid your place.

Oh, and once I have a house, the agreement will work both ways of course.

Alicia Chenaux said...

Omg, you and Marnix are going to have hot chicken sex on the island. We're going to have to move to Zindra. :-p

Ecaria Regenbogen said...

I so did not mean I disliked the Chickens THAT much! I must have been living under a rock that I haven't seen them until Meara was on her back (*insert pun here*).

I do most certainly love that outfit of yours though. But the post...Hmm yes...The post...*grins wickedly*

Fran said...

The Prim babies freaked me the hell out !!

Your post should have had a warning about that :p


Prim babies (or even babbys) freak me out in general but those... I would like to un-see. EW. As for that skin...

(No, no, don't let me start).

I was wandering the grid last night vaguely thinking about an animal. Not that I can afford either the prims or the price (I would prefer them to LOOK like cats or dogs or birds, see, instead of the animal equivalent of those... grim-prim things but boy... the good 'uns are pricey).

A friend (hah! She nearly wasn't after this) said "thought of those chickens that lay eggs, Ari?"

No. Just no.

I'll stick with vague ideas of a seagull (of which the last one flew into inventory-limbo).

Emerald Wynn said...

Ari! If you want one, I can hook you up with a pair of eggs and a little 1-prim pen and some food! Let me know! :D

Heidi Halberstadt said...

OMGOMGOMG. No. No way. I just went to that store. Seriously. So wrong. Talk about overinflated ego, but that goes along with the prizes for stuff in there. And she's rude to boot. Epic Win!

Prim babies... where's that picture of the Do Not Want Broccoli Dog when you need it?

You smelled right on Indulge. She has moody shoes and prims from known copybotters. Stay clear of that one... unless you want to get copybotted!
