Yule time

I am not a fan of cold weather, but there is one thing about it I do like very much. It’s the thought of wrapping up warm in front of a roaring fire while the cold is outside. I can just see myself right now, curled up on this chair, wrapped in a blanket with a book, periodically watching the kitten play and trying to stop her destroying the presents. It’s a homely thought and one I’ll enjoy for the rest of the day (stuck in work…boo!)

A Question of Luck

I’m a sucker for good quality clothing, hair and shoes in SL. I’m also a sucker for a bargain. A good quality freebie in SL….even better! When I have free time inworld, I love to find a good lucky board, hang out with like minded people and see what comes my way. Don’t be fooled though, it isn’t all giggles and chilled conversation. If a board has a wildcard (?) feature enabled, I’ve seen people go from smiley to ultra competitive in the time it  takes to blink. But for me, that’s part of the experience and the fun of hanging around lucky boards. You never quite know what you’re going to get.

Sugar Rush

So, when the Cap’n suggested meeting for dinner, Wynn had no idea she’d be served as dessert. Literally. “Don’t look at them in the eyes….well, eye” she muttered to herself as the swarthy band of pirates sat and began discussing treasure. Wynn blanched as she saw a one handed leader hook a ring donut from her thigh. “That was close” she thought “I’m sure he was headed for my belgian bun!”

Be Merry

…..or “Time to crack open the shiraz” as I also like to call this time of year. I should really be slapping myself on the wrist as I mentally told myself no festive blog posts before the 1st December. But, there you go. I suppose rules are meant to be broken. I’m going to squarely place the blame on this cute sweater dress I’m wearing because, well, it makes me feel festive (mutters). I’m also going to place the blame squarely with this pose because, well, it makes me want a large glass of one. But then again….this time of year, it’s the only way I can survive the chaos of family get togethers >.>
