Yeah, it's one of those days

Happy Friday!!  It’s a pretty extensive list of credits today so I will just sort of give some brief highlights.  The Arcade ends later tonight.. so it’s really the last chance to grab some fun items before they’re gone as some of the items are exclusives or you can always try finding them in marketplace or in-world locations where they have older gachas.

As the Arcade ends, a new round of The Gacha Guardians starts tomorrow or just under 15 hours to be exact. Lots of great items you’re going to find this round.  My guy here is wearing new releases by Belleza, which are at this round of Men Only Monthly.  Then I’m also showcasing decor by 22769, that you can find at this round of the newest event for men called Man Cave. The shelf with decor is at Shiny Shabby.

Hope it’s a great start to the fabulous weekend ahead!

Best GF 017

I don’t know about the rest of you, but this week so far has been down and out crazy. I feel pulled in every direction and the frustration level that I see in others and myself too is at an all-time high. It feels like all I’ve done since Monday is put out fires, and today I have a headache that won’t quit.  It’s no wonder we escape sometimes, even if our realities remain.

By now I’m sure you’ve seen these star of fame wall frames with different awards such as best friend, wife, hag, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, designer and a whole list of others found at the arcade. They are very cute frames and can create that fun atmosphere as they’re meant to, when proudly displayed or given as gifts to that person you’re honoring with that title of being the best of something.

I’m proudly showing off my fame as best girlfriend, and even though I gave it to myself it doesn’t lessen its impact. Darn right.  I earned this title; just ask my ex (spoken tongue-in-cheek).

Funny note aside I had a bit of a revelation the other week when I was watching the movie Jerry Maguire that aired in 1996. Jerry is played by actor Tom Cruise, which is about a sports agent that gets fired and then starts his own management firm with a sole client, Rod Tidwell, played by actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. There is a particular scene where a frustrated Jerry is telling Rod, who has a bit of an attitude, that he needs to go back to being the guy who first started playing the game, like when he was kid. The conversation doesn’t go well and an irritated Jerry leaves and as Rod watches him go he yells at him, “See, man, that’s the difference between us. You think we’re fighting, I think we’re finally talking!”

That particular scene was a bit of an eye opener as I thought back on previous encounters and made me reflect that I’m more like a Jerry and how this might have contributed to communication breakdowns.  It’s given me something to ponder on as I think of how quickly I can shut down when overwhelmed with high emotions.

My goodness.  Maybe I should send my ex the best boyfriend award.

oLIMPIA

I make no secret of liking to dress up in mythical and fantasy like costumes and events like 25L Tuesday, which are geared more for the role-player make it a lot easier.  It’s sort of my rationale for I won’t feel so guilty for buying something that I might just wear once for a picture if it only costs 25 lindens. The rest of the items minus the shoes, chalice and fruit were from the August Collabor88 event.

Safari tour…

Safari124

Ever since grabbing this outfit from this month’s round of Collabor88 it’s been at the back of my mind to do some kind of safari scene.  There is something I love about doing pictures of nature with animals.  Perhaps its the wild calling me?

Safari 15

I think it would be absolutely cool to be so close up to the animals this way.   Actually the idea of being out in a vast open space with my camera and binoculars on hand to capture the animals in their natural habitat really does appeal to me.  The last time I was around animals of this type was on a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom about two years ago and I got some wonderful shots of lions, giraffes, gators and some other animals.  If only I could find them.

Well this is the end of our adventure until next time.
