RL Garage Sale

For anybody living within driving distance of our RL location (Kingston, WA), we're having a garage sale this Friday and Saturday! Lots of costumey things and prop bits for making steampunk gadgets. Victorian items and militaria. I'll have a sort of catalog up on my "Tilbury Surplus" site by tomorrow...er... Thursday.

Haunted Folly

Come visit! Set your time to "midnight", and turn on your music stream. I don't recommend bathing in the stream...

PJ Party at Lumi's

Just had to mention that Lumina's spontaneous (at least I assume it was spontaneous) pajama party last night was one of the best "events" I've ever attended in SL. Charming, amusing people, comfy attire, gorgeous surroundings, and just about the best DJ I've ever had the pleasure of hearing, Mr. Shalimando Glineux (sp). He's a gargoyle and has a great look. Hope he gets lots of gigs this month. He also has a magnificently ecclectic music library, and was quick to incorporate requests or spontaneous additions inspired by the ongoing chat. Wow.

Oh, there were Teddy Bear Guns, pillow fights, Lemming Launchers, and, er, pole dancers (egads). It was a hoot. I had so much fun I forgot to take pictures!

Music Stream Change: October moodiness

I just tried to change my Mediamaster stream on my parcel, and now it won't play! I put the URL for the collection in the right spot...do I have to do something else? I feel doofy...

Update: After checking with Hotspur's Tutorial, I noticed that I was getting two different URLs for my "Halloween Ambient" list...and one was missing...just....one...zero. That fixed it.

Now it can be told!

Saw this on Eva's blog and it looked interesting. I'm actually quite pleased with the result, although I'm not sure what some of the questions had to do with the 15th century...

Your result for The Who Would You Be in 1400 AD Test...

The Prioress

You scored 11% Cardinal, 56% Monk, 62% Lady, and 49% Knight!

Take the test yourself...

Mr. Peterman goes Wild West

Although I can seldom get the boy to actually log on to SL and play virtual world with me, it's no trouble at all to get him to play let's pretend in RL. Maybe it's because we recently saw the new fab Western "Appaloosa", but Gordon decided he needed some new cowboy photos, since the last good ones we did were about ten years ago. Anyway, here's cowboy Gordo on Woody the wonder horse.

Bonus action shot of him "shooting" my iron-frame Henry. Woody kept falling asleep, so Gordon kept throwing sticks out ahead of him to get the Woody to look alert
(you know, like he was spotting the enemy or something). Making Woody look alert is uphill work.
