You learn something every single day. It seems that girl faeries do something that ordinary girls do not!
If you are a Faerie or a Fairy Princess or a unicorn or fashion review blogger (I kid!) you can get this item on the Toyland sim at the building that looks like a giant pink jewelry box. I actually had a pretty good time exploring here and I still need to go back to make sure I didn't miss anything. Many of the toys and games are interactive - you can knock the dominoes over, make the Rock-em-Sock-'em Robots punch, etc. They have a "Pac Man" hunt going on and I did about half of it - but I think it is still being set up since some of the hunt items were not active.
I was taking a break from all my cheering, voodoo, etc. for the Cardinals when I noticed some strange chat in one of my groups - aDiva. As I've blogged before, aDiva holds a special place in my heart since I bought my wedding dress there. I love the store.
So anyway, people kept plurking letters and SLURLS in the group chat and I was confused. I guess I missed the notice (thanks, LL), but there was a Halloween Pumpkin Hunt going on! AnneJoy Paine, aDiva's Supreme Diva, has done these in years past and they are so fun -- mostly because of the fun chatter in the group as we help each other find pumpkins that match the first letter of our names. When the group explained what was going on, I TPd over to help with the 'Pumpkin Identification and Tracking'. Each time I posted a letter and location, I felt like a Very Responsible and Active Group Member I've already manged to win a couple of prizes, but I'm going back again this week just because it's so fun to hang out with everyone.
Side note - back in ancient times, before display names, it was quite easy to know if there was anyone else nearby with your same letter with whom you needed to take turns grabbing pumpkins. But now? CHAOS! Complete chaos! On the scale of dogs and cats sleeping together. Obviously, none of the Lindens responsible for display names has ever been to the aDiva pumpkin hunt.
Why yes, I am rooting for one of the teams in the World Series this year. Sadly, I couldn't find a baseball diamond in which to take this picture. I am in a sandbox - which is only two letters away from the word sandlot, which just happens to be the title of a movie that had some baseball (and Dennis Leary) in it.
Anyhoo, I took my bat with me all over the grid, this week - including to hunts and sale events like the [elikatira] sale that started today. I'm not sure if it was because of the bat, but someone who bumped into me apologized right away, no one asked me to "make the sexy time", and people seemed to clear away from landing points much faster. Does this bat make me look fat? Because if not, I'm taking it with me everywhere.
This is a picture of me loitering at NSD waiting for unsupected Season's Hunters to enter the store so I can follow them around until they we find the first hunt object.
I normally don't get all excited for hunts, but some of the prizes in this one seem nice so I am going to at least cherry pick those out. Oh, and so much for "getting free stuff in SL!" - I've already spent over $500L while hunting in the first store.
Update: OK, I am lame. I am writing this while stuck at store #1 unable to find the prize. But there is no way I will admit to that and ask for a clue for the very first location. I shall soldier on!
Live update: Gah. Caved and asked for a clue but, now, feeling really bad about my intelligence because prize is elusive. Will not give up. Trying to conserve $Lindens.
Live-r update: Still here and still prize-less. Clue was something about polo, but after thoroughly searching any polo related items, have come up empty. Abandoned my AO in the jewelry department in an effort to lighten my load. Am still hopeful.
Even Live-r update: Desperately low on supplies ($Ls) now and injuries (lag) have started to take their toll. Hope is fading.
Screw this: Please tell Jerremy that I love him. *cough* *wheeze* *collapse*
What are you going to be for Halloween? I waited too long to decide on my RL Halloween costume and now I am stuck paying a rush fee for one of the items I need for it.
In SL, where I never have to pay rush fees, I started shopping for a costume at one of my absolute favorite places, A Touch of Ireland. I adore ATOI's holiday outfits and decorative things! When I saw the above pictured bit of Autumn decor, I had to share it with you. Also, in one of the costume areas you can get a FREE couple's costume - that kind of goes with this item, actually, in a very troubling way. I'll be honest: I left the FREE couple's costume right there in the store, but it might be right up your alley. (If you have trouble finding it, IM or email me and I'll help.)
In Real Life, I'm putting together a Toddlers & Tiaras Pageant Mom costume -- complete with every awful crazed, inappropriate, stage mom cliche that I can think of. Think cigarette hanging from mouth, evidence of trying to live vicariously through my child (to be played by one of my niece's dolls), doll sized stripper tassels and a little something from the Kardashian Kollection.*
I might try to replicate my RL costume in SL. Wait. I *will* replicate it in SL. It'll give me something to do when Jerremy isn't in world.
*I am so kidding - I would never give those horrid women any of my money.
