Well, It Sure Isn't Taylor Swift

Yes, I know this could be considered a really old meme but it's a favorite. Of course, it's only old if you think things from 2012 are old. For example, maybe you are the parent of a really old toddler. I don't know; that's on you. 

If you aren't familiar with the original meme I'm referencing above go here and scroll down to about the middle of the page.

At the Bowling Alley

This video is the Pins & Grins comedy show from last Thursday evening. (Thank you for recording this,Geo Meek!) The lovely and talented ZoeyNewlon hosted the evening! She and her husband, comic C (a.k.a. PhotographerC Bender), organized the event and did a great job of it! 

My set starts at roughly 29:25. I decided to work the shoe rental booth while I talked - I didn't need the extra challenge of trying to use mouse look to aim and bowl while I tried to perform. I managed to upload a texture to make a Pins & Grins staff "Ball Washer" t-shirt moments before the show started. (It was a very busy and stressful week in RL.)

One of my friends gave me the idea of having a morning stand-up comedy event for the people on the other side of the word who can't make it to a show during Second Life Time evening hours. So maybe I'll suggest to Zoey and C that we have something called Comics & Crêpes? or Pancakes & Puns? Snark & Snausages?

I hope you enjoy the video!

Rock the Boat

Jerremy and I needed a new rowboat. That meant shopping, because this one I am sitting in above is the one Jerremy had.

Now, I love my husband very much, but some of the things that come out of his inventory are very "interesting." I'm pretty certain that he has never ever thrown anything out. I imagine that his inventory is like an archaeological dig site. Only dustier. 

Of course, I didn't come here to tell you about Jerremy's inventory. I came here to tell you about sex rowboats. 

While shopping for a new boat, I've run across an awful lot of sex rowboats. That seems dangerous. Isn't the standard advice for rowboats that you should never stand up in them? How are we expected to go through the kama sutra in one? Someone is vastly overestimating my sense of balance during climax. 

There is a reason that most sex and all floor gymnastics routines take place on a soft, bouncy surface and not on a boat. And that reason is to land safely after your dismount.  

I could just buy a PG rowboat. But then what do we do if we get in the mood while using it? We'd have to ruin the moment to go allllll the way to the back yard to get to the sex hammock. Or inside the house to fire up the sex toaster. But if I choose the adult rowboat, we could drown. (We'd drown happy, but we'd still drown.)

Decisions, decisions.

Stuff to Do in SL: Pins & Grins

Poster by ZoeyNewlon
You guys need to grab some bowling shoes and meet me and a bunch of SL comedians at Pinstripes for some fun! My friends ZoeyNewlon and PhotographerC Bender have organized an evening of Second Life bowling and live stand-up comedy!

I'm doing a set of comedy for Pins & Grins -- which I am working on as we speak. If there's room on the lanes, I'll be bowling, too. And if there's no room for me to bowl, I'll be behind the counter renting shoes.

I have no idea what to wear for the event since Second Life lacks good bowling shirts. I have a bowling shirt, but I think it's from 2012 or 2013. Plus, I had been hoping to find something I could customize so that my shirt wold say that I was an official Pins & Grins Ball Washer. Without a custom shirt, I can only be an unofficial ball washer. 

See you Thursday evening!

My Yard Sale Yard

This chair is so comfortable and a bargain at $25L!
Here I am babysitting my yard sale stuff at the Gachaopolis! yard sale. I don't have any milkshakes to bring you to my yard sale yards, so I will have to tempt you with things like this:

A bumblebee balloon hat! I have one too, so if you buy this we can hang out together and be twinsies!
Who doesn't need a bumblebee balloon hat?? Or a number 4, re-sizable birthday candle? Or a surfboard buffet table that will be perfect for your next luau?? Ribbon candy? Mistletoe? Boho jewelry?

At the moment I have two spaces here (the ones shown in the picture above), but I'm hoping to be able to sell enough to consolidate to the single space near the end of the wall there. I still have some stuff that I need to put out once I have room for it - like extra poses (and once I make room to display these poses, I will have milkshakes to bring people to my yard!). Even though I don't have the world's most visible spot, I've sold a good number of items. Do you see anything you like? I probably have even more of it in my inventory. Sigh.

I'm so happy that I was able to rent space at this yard sale area. I think it gets really good traffic and it's nice and organized. (I believe that it's the old The Pea gacha yard sale area.) Half of the sim is a featured yard sale for a current, large gacha event (right now that's the September Arcade) so people can easily buy and sell their extra items. The other half of the sim is a public yard sale. You can shop for all kinds of past gacha items or rent space to sell your gacha extras. 

By the way, God bless creators who package gacha items in one prim objects that have photos of the item inside. Creators who do this make it easier for people to trade and buy extras and, therefore, reduce the risk of playing their gachas - which should lead to more gacha sales. 

By the way, would you like to buy a painted rock cactus thing??
Hearts! Pink pots! The word "love" painted on rocks!

I Don't Give a Dam

Oh my gosh! I am so embarrassed! I didn't realize that you could see my beaver in this outfit! Sorry!

Wait. No - that's not the truth. I know darn well you can see it. In fact, I specifically selected this photo because of how nice it makes my beaver look. The fur on my beaver looks so soft and shiny with this windlight. 

I wore him all evening Tuesday when I went to watch comedy at Lauren's, but no one even commented on him! Well, my friend Haley said, "Nice hat," but I am not sure if she realized it wasn't actually a hat. I missed my chance to make a terrible, terrible, slightly dirty joke! (Now I know how the docents at the Denver Art Museum feel when they miss a chance to say, "Enjoy the DAM museum!" or "You have to go the other DAM wing of the DAM building to get to the DAM gift shop.")

I spent too much money trying to make this joke (it was a gacha machine). I played until I got a wearable one, but I never got one that I could hold in my arm. I sent the extras my extras to various people on my friends list - along with IMs that said "I thought you might like to see my beaver!" 

It's lame, I know. But I don't give a dam.

I Don't Have the Balls for It

Here I am at Pinstripes trying to forget a particularly horrible bowling experience. I won't go into detail except to say that it involved not being able to bowl, a lot of unnecessary squatting, and more than a few people offering to let me play with their balls. When I finally got things worked out, I vowed to never let go of my bowling ball again. But then I realized that I needed my whiskey hand free.

I was trying to practice my Second Life bowling in order to get ready for an upcoming event called Pins & Grins - an evening of bowling and stand-up comedy. Pins & Grins is the brainchild of my friends Zoey and C. On October 8th, you are invited to come bowl at Pinstripes while comedians entertain everyone. It'll be in the evening SLT, but the exact time hasn't been decided yet. 

I've committed to doing a set of comedy at Pins & Grins, so now that I've fixed my bowling problems, I need to find a bowling shirt to wear. That's why I dusted off my almost-never-used FaceBook account to try to persuade Meli Imako to make some men's and women's mesh bowling shirt templates. Apparently, she has people weigh in on what kinds of things they want her to make (there might be a vote, but I am not sure). I'm crossing my fingers that if  she decides to make the shirts, she'd make them soon enough that I could buy them before Pins & Grins happens. 

Watch this space for more info on Pins & Grins and the state of my balls!
