Well Hello, Kitty!!


I heard a rumor that after the XStreet "brand cleansing" is finished, SL is going to start cracking down on inworld products that violate its Branding Guidelines.

And according to this rumor, when it happens, all my Hello Kitty stuff will simply vanish from my inventory.

So I got nervous and put all my SL Hello Kitty stuff in one inventory folder called "OOOH! You Gots Hello Kitty!"

When the Hello Kitty Rapture occurs, I want to be able to just look in one folder and see that everything's gone, not frantically hunt through my 90K inventory for my Hello Kitty toaster, earrings, hoodie, plushie, private jet and hot air balloon. And that house up there.


Look at the inside:


Really, could we ask for anything more?

I know you're jealous, so I'm gonna ease your pain and let you know that this house is FREE FREE FREE at Benski's Builds! And while you're there, please slap the Midnight Mania board for that beach house on stilts. I want it. And so do you.

If I really wanted to live in this Hello Kitty palace, I'd have to kill a bunch of chickens and get rid of my really elegant (rickety-ass) chicken coop. Even if I don't, I'm gonna have to at least kill my chicken Trixie anyway. I need room for a rare chicken that I won in a raffle. Sorry Trixie, being ordinary just doesn't cut it these days. It's a tough world out there.

I'll wait until she's asleep. :(

Um, besides that, I'm trying to finish the Black Keys Hunt and the Proposer Hunt, but I feel sort of hopeless, like I just don't have time . . .

. . . because I got a new (RL) job!

I'm a freelance writer for our newspaper's business section now and DAMN they dumped a bunch of assignments on me already — but that's OK because they pay $150 a story, so four stories a week = MasterCard payment. Five stories a week = MasterCard payment + shoes + decent wine + a pizza.

Still looking for a full-time job though. Maybe the Lindens will swing by here and see that I'm both informative AND loved and, as such, would make a FABULOUS Community Communications Manager! (Heck yes, I applied, and I already got a very pleasant "Thanks! Maybe we'll call you!" form e-mail in response.)

That aside, I lost another SL friend today — my friend Holden canceled his Second Life account. That's two friends in one week. *sniff* (Seriously, I really did get all sniffly.)

I'll miss you, Holden. Thank you for the wind turbine. :*(

Ahh until you posted this blog I never thought my Cookie monster hoodie and shirts will disappear :( There goes all my clothes from Intrigue Co-and probably all of that store.

Off to wear those shirts one last time and take pictures.

I'll believe the whole "disappearing act" thing when I see it though, Amie.

It would take a lot of work for LL to yank everything out of everyone's inventory like that.

When the Rapture occurs, will bad or misspelled "Kitteys" be ... LEFT BEHIND?! Oh, the 7 years of torment!

Yeah, I live in a big Southern Baptist world. Don't hate.

Yay! Congrats on the new RL job!

Congrats on the new RL job Em! That's awesome! And that's totally cool that you applied to be a CCM for LL. It's a tough job, but I think you could do it! *hugs*

Emerald Wynn said...

I used to be a CCM for the Surgeon General of the U.S.

He was a diva.

Everything else looks like something of a cakewalk.

I think I could do it too! :D

Amie Adamski said...

Oh wow sorry I was too busy crying over my cookie clothes to see that you got a job-Congrats!! And good luck on the Linden Lab job. It's a place where I never really thought to look at for a job. If you get it you would have to change your name though to Emerald Linden though.

Congrats on the new job!

Smiles all innocent while stuffing Ed Hardy knock offs under my bed.

No way can LL be perving all those thousands of accounts to poof copyright items held in inventories.
