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!

Bling County 2015 #2

You may have to click on the comic strip to enlarge it.

Jerremy Darwin, my wonderful SL husband, wrote this strip. I just helped out a bit. Visit the real Bloom County 2015 to see what inspired this.

C & Zoey Sittin' in a Tree

On Friday, I had the incredible honor of being Best Man for the lovely and talented PhotographerC Bender's wedding to the beautiful ZoeyNewlon! (The picture above was the only photograph that I dared to take because I really didn't want crash. I caught the groom mumbling to himself.) Look at these handsome men! They look so....so... employable! 

This shows us before the start of the ceremony while we waited for the bride, ZoeyNewlon, and the bridesmaids to arrive. Since I'm a girl - I was allowed in the bride's dressing room and joined them in getting ready. But, I made sure to hang out with the guys in front, too, so I could bond with them. In the picture I'm trying to figure out which cologne my friend Jamie is wearing; I think it was Sex Panther. (Jamie and I "signed" their guest book with a note card asking them if they swing now that they're married.)

The groom did an excellent job of selecting a tux that looked good on all of us. It was actually two tuxes put together - the jacket from one and the pants from another. (Good thing my claim to fame is not my giant breasts, though!) I wore an updo to the wedding, but I was trying some other options when I took the picture below. That's our living room. (My husband Jerremy's pet hermit crabs are on the coffee table.)

(You can see my husband Jerremy's pet hermit crabs are on the coffee table.)

Earlier this week we had a combined bachelor/bachelorette party. Again, I was afraid of crashing so I didn't take many pictures, so you'll just have to imagine the debauchery. Imagine naked people, stripper poles, the bride griefing the sim, and a party full of SL comedians trying to out-funny each other. I was strict with this crowd and nixed animal sacrifices, cannibalism, and intravenous drug use.  

I am so happy I keep a folder full of party decor and food - the only thing I needed to add was a cake for the bride to jump out of. This picture gives a view of the cake. (I'm the one in water wings.) I have so much stuff in my humongous party folder! I re-discovered my spin-the-bottle game - which we never got a chance to play, but I will definitely bring it out again for the next party.

All of my best parties have been DJd by the amazing Alicia Chenaux. She outdid herself and gave us the most perfect party music for the crowd everIf you have ever heard Alicia speak, you know she has an adorable, girly voice that causes grown men to re-enter puberty when they hear it - which is just what a bachelor party needs, IMHO.

The day after the wedding, I saw Zoey and C when we did another stand-up comedy show: "In-Jest" at Hooligan's Roadside Diner (Saturdays at 5 p.m. SLT). They looked happy but tired, so I gave them some of my very own Virtual Zing! energy drinks and a container of Scuz-B-Gone pose ball wipes

Congratulations to C and Zoey!! I love you guys!

North by North West... Again

NOTE: It has been a crazy week so I'm sharing a past post from August 2013 that I liked. If you don't know about my prim son (his father is my SL husband, Jerremy) here's a bit of how it all began. When I wrote this Prince George and Kanye West's kids had just been born. - Luv. Tymmerie

Two celebrity couples have debuted their babies in the last few months. I don't understand the excitement over seeing a picture of a rich baby. I think all babies look basically the same until they are 7 or 8 years old. And even then, you can only tell them apart by their hairstyles. 

When our prim son, Blocky, was born we took lots of pictures of him but did we try to sell them for money? No. Did we start a bidding war between BOSL and Avenue magazines to put his photo on their covers? No. Did we go on our horrible Mother-in-Law's horrible new talk show to show a picture of the baby? No. Normal people do not do those types of things. 

I've never posted these pictures on my blog, but just to show that normal folks have perfectly lovely babies, too, I'm sharing some of the first pictures of Blocky. The one at the top of this post was taken after he was first rezzed. 

And this is how he looked a few minutes later: 

See? Not so different from your own prim children. And just as cute as that future king kid.

Straight Outta Laughs

I snapped the photo above during the comedy show at Lauren's (the club is on a sim called Cookie) last week. I made it with this site. I have no idea why I can't resist doing photo memes is so fun for me, but there you go. 

This is my set from last night (Tuesday, Aug. 25th): 

Personally, I think I went a little, too long. I'll have to remember that for next time. I'll put up more videos as they get posted. You can watch past videos of comics here. Enjoy!
