Random-ass stuff that's going on in my yard


As you may know, I try really hard to make my yard into a wonderland for my own enjoyment and the enjoyment of those around me.

Combine my artistic landscaping with a bunch of rowdy neighbors and their friends and God only knows what the hell goes on over there when I'm not online.

Unfortunately yesterday, as part of my New Year's resolution to delete at least three things from my inventory a day, I saw something in there labeled "Yellow" and rezzed it out of curiosity. It turned out to be a mother-bleeping animated built-to-scale solar system and I ended up chasing planets around for an hour.

I still haven't caught Earth and Mars. Or maybe it's Mercury, actually. At first it was amusing but now it's irritating me to no end.


GAH!!!!! Those suckers are fast. It took me nine tries just to get them in a photo.

If you care about fashion at all, you've already read about that dress, but I do want to point out those cool Ribbon Seams Leg Tattoos (50L) from JetDoll. Who needs stockings when you can ram a needle into your skin and permanently draw a long black line down your legs?

I also can't get enough of those Vivien shoes from Courtisane. I got mine at the shoe fair, but I believe you can get them at the store for 1200L for a color pack of three.

I need a segue RIGHT HERE.

You know how I'm always begging people to slap the Midnight Mania board for the animals at Neon Frog? Well, yesterday I moseyed over there with the intention to -- GASP! -- just buy one.

I didn't realize the animals there come in three versions: copyable for 700L (in case you want to fill up your whole yard with a pride of lions), trans only for 300L, and ANIMATED for either 1200L or 1600L (sorry, I forgot).

I bought the giraffe. Close up, it's kind of creepy actually. But it can move by itself, you can ride it and control it, you can ride it while it controls itself, or you can tell it to ATTACK people!


(I've been neurotic about the length of my AV's neck lately, so I thought I'd point out the difference.)

Back up off me and my Attack Giraffe, bishes!


Lately I've been getting a bunch of notecards begging for more pictures of me in my underwear.

OK, if you insist.

Night Singh has a groovy little lingerie shop called Nightsong Lingerie and Babydolls, and I think his work is just beautiful. What's more, I'm pretty sure everything in there is an affordable 100L.

If you read my last post, you saw the back of this Blossom Babydoll. Here's the front:


and here's a picture of . . .

uh . . .

Shoot, I thought I took more pictures than this one. Oh well. Next time.

In other horrifying news, I went to a new hairstylist in RL last week and she chopped the hell out of my shoulder-length hair almost to look JUST LIKE THAT HAIRSTYLE in that picture, except without the hip asymmetrical element.

The problem is, I don't have my AV's cute little delicate face in RL, so I look like Queen of the Soccer-Mom Dorks now.

I cried about it yesterday. Seriously. It took me a year to grow my hair to its former length. Now I have to start all over.


And on that depressing note, I brought two folders worth of work home this weekend. I'd better get to it.

You forgot to mention that I found Uranus in the snow heading towards Sehra's & Bone's house.

/me goes back to giggling like a 12 year old

Chalice Carling said...

Oh Alicia I was going to say something about Uranus. Something like are you sure you're not sitting on Uranus. lol Great minds eh?

I can see why you're getting notecards for lingerie is hot in that.

Emerald Wynn said...

ROFL Chalice. I WISH people were asking me for lingerie shots. That was a little joke.

And yeah, I was shopping yesterday when I got an IM from Ali that said, "You left Uranus out here in the snow."

*starts laughing again like a juvenile*

Your "delete three things" idea is genius. At that rate, my inventory will be under control by. . . /gets out slide rule . . . well, it would be a start.
