SL’s Technical Woes Put a Halt to my Latest Hunting Binge

Anyone else glaring at their computer in the past hour and yelling “LET ME IN, DAMMIT!!!”???

Okay, okay–so I probably should take a break.

But I’ve been so excited to be back in-world that I’ve been on a total hunt binge of late–I still haven’t even opened all of the gifties!

Hunts done (though I may have some “skip for now” locations to head back to once they’re set)-

I’m working my way through the Twisted Hunt which is insanely challenging.

Tried to log in but was denied. And silly me, I thought that it was because I’d broken my viewer from all the hopping around!

But no–I finally wised up and checked Second Life status, only to be greeted with:

SL somebody fd up

That was an hour ago and it’s still not (apparently) fixed.

Time to reach for the fudge core Ben & Jerry’s and fire up Netflix, I suppose–doesn’t look like there’ll be any SL hunting fun tonight. 😦

September Hunts are Here!

OMG, I’m still trying to wrap up the hunts that run from late August into early September but, ta-da, the September Hunts have now been announced!

September Hunts & Events are Here

https://slhunts.wordpress.com/category/september-2017/

Some of the goodies are absolutely delicious!

Probably no way to complete everything and get pics, so I think I’ll pick out my faves and photo those–after I invest in a new photo studio (oh sheesh, more shopping–I think I’m going to have to invest in some comfy shoes while I’m at it!).

Off to the quest, er, hunt! See you on the trail!

 

 

Love/Hate with Flickr

Oh Yahoo, why doest thou hate me so???

Of course, I can’t blame it all on Yahoo. I’ve been AWOL from posting for long enough, I’d forgotten my password to my Flickr account.

Tried to log in yesterday and NOPE!–No Flickr for you! So I try to request a new password–“we can’t seem to find this email”.  Ooooohkaaaay. Tried several more potential passwords. Newp. Nada. Sigh and try to sign up for a new account–“This email is already connected to an account.” ARRRRGH! (Dear Yahoo, if you really hate my virtual photography, just tell me–you don’t have to prep me for a rubber room!)

After several moments of glaring menacingly at the screen, I finally used an alternate email to sign up for a spanking new Flickr account–and felt rather smug about dumping all of my old virtual fashion photos that I could lay hands on into the uploader. Take THAT! (Unfortunately, now they’re not organized but give me the small victory, eh?)

The new photostream is here — as I find more of the old stuff, I’ll add it, plus the new stuff.

A couple of items from the Little Shop of Horrors Hunt 2017

Spent a bit of time putting together pics of a couple of finds from the Little Shop of Horrors hunt that is going on ’til the end of the month.

Applique Chic Little Shop of Horrors dress

Vintage/Retro dress from Applique Chic. (The shoes are from Free Dove.)

Innarra's Little Shop of Horrors find

Dress from Inara’s Fantasy. (Shoes, again, from Free Dove.) My little spooky buddy is Seymore, the Follow-Me Talking Tree, a LSOH gift from Love Everlasting Plant Pets.

The Lovefest Hunt was EPIC

I haven’t even unpacked the goodies but I have to report that the Lovefest 2017 was nothing short of awe-inspiring and a hella lot of fun! (I wish I could come up with stuff like the organizers did!)

Including fresh pics (btw, I “died” at the end–not sure if that’s normal or if I’m just a bad quester).

Ooch. Rough landing! Good thing I’d taken my Dramamine!

Snapshot_010

It’s an alien world down here.

Snapshot_011

Pretty purple flower things–and slugs.

Snapshot_012

No fishies–or fishie-things–I am not food!

Snapshot_013

I said, I AM NOT FOOD!

Snapshot_014

The native species seem to be a bit overly friendly.

Snapshot_015

Did I lose the trail?

Snapshot_016

This tentacled thing likes to hug–hard!

Snapshot_017

Took a door, wound up dead in space–at least I didn’t get hit by that big bang there.

Peacefully drifting off into the aether.

Bad Bloggess–Bad, Bad Bloggess!

It’s been forever since I’ve posted!

I finally got back involved in SL a few weeks ago, just in time to see the CDS display for the SL Big Birthday Bash. It was fun because I actually got to participate! They’d asked for pictures of the residents to make life-sized (avatar life-sized, that is) cutouts to make the display look like it was not only inhabited but rockin’ up in those Alpine villages! 😀

I was really honored that they used both of mine–one in a lederhosen minidress, complete with steins and pretzels and one with a full carnivale get-up. I had a blast taking the photos and was proud to have been included.

I haven’t taken the time to do much more inworld photography for a long time. I did just finish two hunts–the Hard Catch hunt  and the Little Shop of Horrors hunt. I was just about to go head-first into the Lovefest hunt (last day is today!) but decided to stop for a few moments and write. (Since I finally remembered my blog password! Am I a bad bloggess or what???)

Muah dahlinks ’til next time (which I hope won’t be too long)!

Neighborhood Improvements

Townhouses in CDS Alpine Meadow

Townhouses in CDS Alpine Meadow

Popped into SL long enough to pay my rent on my gorgeous mountain retreat and noticed that there have been some improvements on my street. The big block of apartments across the street have been replaced by these charming townhouses. One of the great things about SL–neighborhood improvements without the dust, debris, and noise!
