Bring on 2011

HAPPY MMXI EVERYONE!

Unless I’m mistaken, 2010 has been relatively calm for the Pack, compared to years past.  *loud sharp knock on wood*

Personally, I hope 2011 is just as quiet.  I remember when I first began this Family thinking how great it would be if my girls were recognized, maybe even somewhat feared, regardless of where they went in SL.  That’s no longer the case.  Perhaps part of recent events in my real life has caused me to think we’re better off tip-toeing on the fringe of obscurity.

Sure, there’s an upside of notoriety, but I’d just as soon our Family and closest friends, and you know who you are, remain tight knit, fostering our time in Second Life together, growing and playing, pretty much the way we have been toward the close of this past year.

Having said that, I’m not going to make that my New Year’s wish.  Que sera, sera.  I have to say that, all things considered, my 2010, as well as my life in general, has been pretty damn good.  My wish is for the incoming fortunes of 2011 to pass me by and land upon someone more needy, and more deserving, then myself.  Ideally, each and every one of this forum’s readers.

As most of my friends know, I love SL photography and am always on the lookout for good places to take pictures.  Recently I came across a very photogenic sim, which also contains an open public studio, with several pose features.  If you use this spot, please do tip its owner.

On that topic, just a few recent shots of myself, as Yar says I don’t use myself as a subject nearly enough.

Happy New Year!

Here I am waiting beneath the moon for Valerie to join me for a dance.

I really don’t wear purple enough.

One simply cannot have a cemetery setting without wearing Avid clothing.

And last but not least, a splash of red, to let Felina know I’m still hunting her.

Happy New Year and good luck and prosperity to all my girls, their girls, and our friends.  On behalf of the Brat Pack, we love you all.

Furniture and more

I suppose when its been too long since I’ve posted, a surefire way to entice me to write and bring some things up to date is to provide me with anything that may generate a laugh.  This may not cause most of you to even grin, but it sure as hell got me to giggle.  Many thanks to Jenny Maurer.

Its fucking fine y'all!

Can you just see the commercial?  Dio in a cheap suit with a nude girl leashed and kneeling beside her.  “Y’all get on down here to Dio’s.  Our furniture is fucking fine!”

Anyway, on to some other topics that are long overdue.  The island is once again open to the public.  I think this may be the final renovation for a long time as it seems to be generating the most compliments.  I am slowly introducing various devices and traps and promise to try and rotate in several favorites.  As usual, if anyone has a request for a particular piece, feel free to provide that to me in-world.

I want to say thank you again to Jill Ormstein for donating the entire line of DoD devices to be used at the island.  Several are currently out for display and more will be added as I rotate items in and out.  Its a simple formula, if I see an item being used on a regular basis, it stays.  If not, it goes.

Of course, in real life its the holiday season and of course, its beginning to cost a lot like Christmas.  I mean this monetarily, as well as time commitments.  Whatever holiday you celebrate or faith you worship this time of year, I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season and peace on earth.

We continue to get updates on Rabea, who’s kept away from Second Life for health reasons.  Our thoughts are with her and we wish her the best.

Its also been a while since we’ve seen Anna, but understand from her bratty comments its not health related.  Love you Anna!

Valerie has also been on a short sabbatical recently as the result of technical issues on her end with regards to her equipment and power supplies.  Miss you Love!!!!  I hope to see you soon.

One more item I want to address and that is to say thank you to each and every person that has taken the time to click on this blog and read about my SL experience, my life in SL, my Family and those I love.  According to my stats checker, we are approaching 20,000 views of this page.  We’re currently at 19, 502.  I am simply blown away that so many of you have kept up with the Brat Pack in this way.  In hindsight, I guess I shouldn’t be, as so many of you continue to visit Yasminia and support us there.
