Week 32 - One Outfit let me count the ways.....

This week I gave myself a simple challenge....
Take one outfit and see how many ways that outfit can be worn. The dress is from Bijou and though at first glance it seems like a simple clubwear type of ensemble I was surprised at how versatile it is. It also gave me the opportunity to rifle through my inventory and see what fit with what. So whatever your style......












* I had to GIMP the skirt a bit for the photo's as there were the usual parts that didn't quite look right.

Week 31 - Anne Bonny!!!

When Anne Bonny was a school girl, we never liked that lass
We’d poke and prod and tease her and she swore she’d get us back
I’d make fun of her mother, and set fire to her pigtails
Now she’s Captain of the ship and I’m in Pirate hell

Some pirates are buried in riches, some pirates wine and dine
Some pirates have a few lady friends to bed them all the time
Some pirates only have one leg (yea but what stories they could tell)
(I’ve never even seen a fight) oh I’m in pirate hell

Chorus:
Pirate hell aint pretty no pirate hell aint fun
Give me pirate purgatory and I’ll sail into the sun
A pirates life for me I said, but I thought I’d be rich by now
I’m stuck here washing dishes, yea I’m in pirate hell
(doe, doe, da doe doe…..)

I’ve swam through shark infested waters, I’ve met a whale eye to eye
I’ve seen many sea creatures but still I’ve survived
When the captain wonders if it’s safe for a swim (oh no)
The crew they grab me and they throw me overboard again

Well the boatswain’s good at what he does and the Captain’s tough as nail
The cook he cooks a decent and the crew they man the sails
The gunner he’s a damn fine shot, as far as I can tell
(me I’m pretty good with a mop), (You’re in pirate hell)

I’m stuck here scrubbing up the deck (Yea I’m in pirate hell)
I’m stuck here counting fish bones (Yea I’m in pirate hell)
I’m stuck here cleaning the Captain’s head (smell bad) Yea I’m in pirate hell
(Lyrics from Musical Blades)

Week 31 - The Good, The Bad and the origins of Beauty


who walks amid the first light from the shore

to the path as light as the sand aflame with the dew

seeking the question knowing the answer

she is but an Ingénue......




gathers shells and daisies makes a chain of flowers

which she follows towards a great light

and finds an ancient city great and corrupted

who wanders its wayward paths sows the seeds of doubt


gathers its waifs and guttersnipes

and knows despair for the first time.

she is the lost and unwanted discarded like the refuse




a world of bedlam tough she builds walls

and finds a world inside herself

where none can harm or touch her

learns a new word...survival..


the years pass and she has forgotten herself

forgotten the answer the question was wrong

day dawns and she finds herself back where it all started

alone on a sheltered shore...

and knows again the knowledge she has carried even then


all things are beauty....and wonder, despair, loss and doubt are one.

and these take joy in the night as the day

For a life lived and all it contained.

Week 30 - I'll get you....you Wascally Wabbit!!!

When I was 5 I fell in love.....His name was Bugs and I always thought he was the coolest Wabbit ever...


I kinda imagined myself as a cool Bunneh...not like all the cute Bunneh's out there. But it was difficult. Clothing for Bunneh's generally fall into the ultra cute and hair..Ah the hair is just so darned awful to fit..I normally have a big head...But some hair just doesn't go on a Wabbit's head!

Taking all this into account, I did my best and found a rather fine outfit at Callie Cline's on sale. (It was still on sale from St. Patty's) I thought it would be fun to see what I could see in SL from a Wabbit's perspective...

First I went to Aerobreeze, which is a watery pretty Sim, one of those places best shot using Windlight. I took a bath and played hopscotch...but I started getting bored. Not enough to do.
Then I went to Farhaven, where I had been told about an evil Bunny plot by the Bunneh Army. (Something to do with world domination...I was happy to get caught up with the Sta Puff Marshmallow man, he is well by the way..) I left there in a hurry, the chocolate Bunny's were giving me the willies.
Then because no Wabbit tour would not be complete without a Dystopian, Urban roleplaying Sim.. I went to Sick. (No Kidding!) Which kinda turned me off ordering any Burgers.
This is a very cool Sim, lots of interesting nooks and crannies.
Well maybe I'll hit a club or two... Too bad Bugs isn't here..
