The other C-word (and more awesomesauce)


I never thought I'd see a time in my life when the phrase "crotch prim" would be part of my vocabulary.

I'm sort of embarrassed because after I got that skirt up there, I IM'ed designer Annah Whitfield and said something along the lines of "THANK YOU for making a mini that doesn't have that annoying little crotch prim!!!!"

Then it dawned on me that maybe it's not a good idea to use the word "crotch" in any type of correspondence with a respected, talented designer, even if it IS used in the context of a compliment.


Anyway, that dark denim mini is called Cat ($120L). You can get it at Annah's store StoRin, and it also comes in "denim" and "really dark denim." And it doesn't have a tiny irritating "looks like a toilet paper accident in a public bathroom" crotch prim. It has a bigger prim with a resizer script . . . and a belt with a resizer script too!

YAY! YAY! YAY! Join me in doing the Happy Skirt Dance, won't you!

(And yeah, that frog never stops ogling my butt. "QUIT IT, YOU PERVY TREE FROG!")

Hey, wanna see something else I like?



Oops, sorry -- I mean MOBILE phone!! Look at the front:

(Photo tip: Use strategically placed art to hide a bad photo composition. Pink Sash Top by EmJay.)

I saw this phone at Belle Belle furniture and screamed, "I NEED THAT THING!" It is so full of sculpty goodness, I wanna EAT IT!

(You know, if you read back over my last eight posts, you can totally tell when the antidepressants started working, huh? Everything seems so damn EXCITING now!)

That phone is made by creator Anya Yalin and also is available at her (my-new-favorite) store AnnaMayaHouse. I walked in there and immediately wanted to grab somebody and make MAD PASSIONATE LOVE in a pile of FISHER-PRICE TOYS!!

OK, that sounded really wrong.

But you know you want the pink one:


And hell to the yes, I bought the Emergency Burger too:


Roll on floor laughing at the ketchup.

Blah, I have so much to blog that my "To Blog" folder is about to explode. Let's talk about free stuff for a second and then I'll save the rest for another post. The skin I'm wearing (that you can barely see) is a really soft pretty skin called Adele - Pale - Lavender, currently free in the Cyanide Subscribo. When I checked today, it was still in History, in notice No. 2.

And speaking of skins, somebody get out the drum and gimme a drumroll because the new oBscene mainstore FINALLY OPENED in a sim with a name that I will never ever ever be able to pronounce, but it's HERE.

Get thee over there quickly! The opening gifts are still out, one of which is this free Braeiyn - Seraphina skin in four tones (including a goth tone) and, uh, there's also a WET VERSION of each tone in the box.

I'm not really into that though, so here's a shot of a dry version:



Oh my God, I look HORRIBLE in it! It's not you, oBscene! I swear! It's me! It's my weird, fat, twisted-looking face! It's just not worthy of your love.

(I did try to do my eye makeup like that in RL the other night. I got Benefit's High Beam in my eyes and all over my nose and black eyeshadow everywhere. My mother said I looked like an alien. I thought I looked more like a car accident. Maybe next time I'll get it right.)

The new store also has three lucky chairs. I've been hanging around them for days. I finally won this ALMiKA skin:

(Pictured: Tia Dress in yellow by DCNY. Necklace from Jori Walter's new alaMood line, debuting at Jewelry Fair 2009.)

OK, that skin is awesome, actually. And the cleavage is still RIGHTEOUS! Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, does cleavage like the oBscene does cleavage, and I don't care if another one of their grand-opening gifts is body glitter! *cringe*

Ironically, I predicted that body glitter would one day be the new black in an older post I wrote about oBscene cleavage.

(Am I the only one who worries that I'm going to get in a car accident and my parents are going to eventually find all these pictures of avatar cleavage on my computer and be very, very disturbed?)

And I'll get to that necklace in another post, but you were right, Celebrity Trollop. Damn, you always are.

If you're a guy and you don't give a damn about clothes or skins, hustle over to XStreet and get this free SL-Ai, the Second Life version of the famous artificial intelligence chatterbot A.L.I.C.E. (It's copy/trans, so if you don't have an XStreet account, give me a holler and I'll give you one.):


I totally intended to close my eyes in that picture, BTW, to convey ecstasy. And look at my glowy chicken back there. I have too many in my life. Let me know if you want one. I'll send you a Chicken-Gram.

Anyway, this lovely lady can hold a semi-conversation with you, and I've spent way too much time talking to her lately:

[8:14] Emerald Wynn: Tell me a joke
[8:14] SL-Ai v0.5: Did you hear the one about the Mountain Goats in the Andes? It was Ba a a a a a d.
[8:14] Emerald Wynn: ROFL
[8:14] SL-Ai v0.5: I'm glad you find this amusing.

[8:15] Emerald Wynn: Sing me a song
[8:15] SL-Ai v0.5: Daisy, Daisy.
Give me your answer do.
I am half crazy.
All for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage.
I can't afford a carriage.
But you'll look sweet.
Upon the seat.
Of a bicycle built for two.
[8:15] Emerald Wynn: Who wrote that song?
[8:15] SL-Ai v0.5: Abraham Lincoln.
[8:16] Emerald Wynn: No!
[8:16] SL-Ai v0.5: Are you serious?

[8:19] Emerald Wynn: Do you speak German?
[8:19] SL-Ai v0.5: Of course I do. Sprich ruhig Deutsch mit mir.
[8:19] Emerald Wynn: Do you speak Japanese?
[8:19] SL-Ai v0.5: Nihongo wa hanashite ii desu ka?
[8:20] Emerald Wynn: Open the pod bay doors, HAL!
[8:20] SL-Ai v0.5: I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.
[8:20] Emerald Wynn: ROFL!

[8:20] SL-Ai v0.5: I'm glad you find this amusing.
[8:21] Emerald Wynn: Do you know R2D2?
[8:21] SL-Ai v0.5: He is a fake robot on Star Wars.
[8:21] Emerald Wynn: Do you know C3PO?
[8:22] SL-Ai v0.5: he is R2D2's best friend.
[8:22] Emerald Wynn: Wow!
[8:22] SL-Ai v0.5: I'm glad you're impressed, .
[8:22] Emerald Wynn: Do you know the Transformers?
[8:22] SL-Ai v0.5: I'll come back to that later.
[8:22] Emerald Wynn: You're supposed to say, "Robots in disguise." Actually you're supposed to sing it.
[8:22] SL-Ai v0.5: I obey only one botmaster.

I guess that's not me.

I'm sure that was just as exciting for you to read as it was for me to copy and paste it.

But go get you one of them thangs!

I have to put on my Lois Lane suit and go to work now.

The End.

The StoRin skirt looks great on you :) Thank you for blogging it :)

PS - love your blog <3

Emerald Wynn said...

Luna, I'm so glad because you have excellent taste!

I cried when the AnnaH store closed. I'm so glad she's back. I don't know where the hell I've been because I had no idea she had a new store. So YAY!!!!!!!!

Alicia Chenaux said...

Is that skirt slim, though? It's super cute on you, but I'm afraid that it would gap at my waist. The suede Malt skirts are bulky on me because of that.

Or I could just go buy one anyway. LOL

Amie Adamski said...

The bot reminds of the person who you could im on AIM who would reply to you-can't think of the name though.

Is it bad that I would ask it dirty questions-ok maybe I shouldn't admit that.

Love the DCNY dress :)

Emerald Wynn said...

Ali, I wore that skirt without my skirt shape so I think it's good -- it's kind of a mystery, which sounds lame. I need to look at it again to see if it's a wrap-around prim or just a wide front panel. I want to say the former. LOL -- it's why you don't see me up for a Top Fashion Blogger of the Year award.

Anything that doesn't have a tiny triangle shooting out from in between my legs and my AV's butt crack is GOLD in my book.

And Amie, LOL, I said, "Say something nasty!" and the bot said, "Something nasty!" Then I said, "Talk dirty to me!" and it said, "You will need a different model for that. Go to [Web site]."

Apparently on the site, you can pay for access to a sexy-talking bot — on screen though, not in SL.

And GAH! I just noticed that SCD has a post with "crotch flap" in the headline. For the record, I didn't know that. And I'm too lazy to rewrite this thing with a whole different angle.

We must all have crotch on the brain or something. :(

My apologies to Lourdes.

And shoot, is it actually called a "crotch flap"?

*abandons fashion for more drunken angst-ridden posts instead*

Anya Yalin said...

Great to see the backpack on you, Emerald :)

I'm glad Heidi told me about your blog. I've been enjoying your writing style.

*puts on nerd glasses* (actually they're always on but whatevs)
Ah-mah-no-hah-shi-dah-tay would be how to pronounce that sim.

That is a cute skirt. I got a little denim mini like that from UnTone Quilt. I should wear it more. But UtQ would be another place for people to check if they want a real skirt and not a VJ flap. I hate the flaps, that is reason enough for me to throw a skirt away, I have none that I've kept.
