Verne’s first heartbreak

25 May

I guess there is a time when any kid wants to leave the comfy cozy castle of his mom, but i never imagined Verne would want to move out within his first year of life.
When i asked what was the reason to make the decission, if he wasnt happy in our new gorgeous land (pics to be posted soon) or if there was anything i could help him with he just said: i am in love and i wanna have some intimacy with her.

So, said and done, i placed a skybox above my garden so Verne could have his place. Some weeks after he sent me an im asking me to teleport there, so i did.
Found him in his little cradle looking a bit down and “not in the mood for chatting”, he said.

-Come on silly, tell me what happened, maybe i can help.
– No, you’ll think i am stupid.
– I could never think you’re stupid, just a bit silly and very stubborn, what happened?
– Ok, i will tell you.

-Juliet, she left.
-Juliet? Who is Juliet?
– My girlfriend, i met her in a hole while i was diggin in the park and now she left me…for a sandworm!!!
– Maybe they are just friends, or maybe she just needs some time. Women can be very complicated, my creepy creature.
– No, she left, look at the note she gave me.

-Awww i am sorry then Verne, but life goes on. There are many many girls out there.
-But she was special…
-We’re all special for someone, you just need to find the one you’re special for.

And it is true, we’re all unique and special. And Verne lives in a jar, isn’t that special already?
I tried to make him laugh a bit and think it worked, because after watching my skills on the circus ball he almost peed on himself!!!

-Feeling better?
-Yes mom, i feel much better now.
-Ok, now let’s go downstairs and pick your stuff, you’re coming back home now.
– Good idea, this place is too empty now.

-What’s that Verne?
-What’s what?
-There!!!Did someone die here?
-I have no idea, those things were here when i woke up this morning…
-Ok, let’s pack your stuff and get out of here, i am nor sure if i want to know more.

The Hunter

14 Feb

After the Tainted Love Hunt, my first hunt in SL i was looking for another hunt with original gifts, not the typical Valentine’s stuff. Following the steps of my friend Karmannghia McGinnis i decided doing the Cupid Heart Hunt. With that name you could think it is all pink heart and flowers and teddybears but no, it is a tour around 31 great japanese designers’ stores where you will find very creative stuff. From furniture to clothes, not forgetting hair, skins and so on.

I will definetely pay a visit to most of those stores from tomorrow, i was in a rush to finnish the hunt (last day was today) and explored only 3 or 4 of them. Also the landscaping and decoration of some of the stores is worth a visit by itself.



And for all of these lazy asses around there, here are two tricks me and Karm have used when we were desperate to find that certain item while hunting. I must say i only used it a couple of times during the Tainted Love Hunt and i have to confess i finnished this Cupid Heart Hunt in a few hours thanks to it.
If you dont want to ruin the fun in hunting…dont abuse of these tools!!!

1. Go to advanced menu, then rendering, select wireframe and there you go!!!Might be a bit painful to your eyes if you do it for too long, but as you can see it makes much easier finding those hidden objects.

2. If you have Phoenix, you can also use the Area Search tool (thanx Frig for sharing!). Just go to the Phoenix menu, click Area Search and type in the first field the name of the object you’re looking for. Minimise it and a red arrow will show you the way.

Happy hunting!!!

Shoulda woulda…

Just the other night i was talking to a friend about love and relationships, and how sometimes we tend to do things just because it is “what we are suppossed to do”, when things should just come natural.

With Valentine’s day coming my special one suggested we could buy each other something nice and do something romantic. I liked the idea as i love both buying and getting gifts and doing something with someone you like is always nice but…are we doing it ‘cos we want or because it is what we are suppossed to do for V’s day? I am romantic, and passional, and tender everyday and i refuse to act a different way just because everything that surrounds me is red hearts and pictures with puppies and teddybears ;p
It is the same with christmas. Everyone is good to each other, and you see these commercials about supporting kids in Africa and all this is awesome but, shouldnt we be good people and help each other all year?
Or we can be selfish and mean the rest of the year as long as we do our little charity in christmas?

Do we need some marketing to tell us what we should do?

With all this said, I have to admit i got inspired by Tainted tunes, the soundtrack of the Tainted Love Hunt (server is currently down but i hope they fix it soon), and i am getting ready a special setlist for pre-valentine’s party at SL Addicts on Friday with some love songs…but i must warn you i wont stream the tipically romantic stuff ;p

Totally offtopic but…

Arent my new pets lovely?

Yes, i was finally dragged here…

By lovely Karm ;p

While we were doing the Tainted Love Hunt all around SL grid, she suggested i should start a blog, telling the series of fortunate and unfortunate events or this crazy but sweet kinda elf that loves doing the chicken dance and exploring the unknown in this virtual world. So i thought…why not?

About me? Well i wont say too much, just to keep your interest in this lil’ blog. I’ll say i’ve loved, i’ve laughed, i’ve cried and i’ve been angry, and all this with the same passion. I know i am not perfect and i love it this way. In SL i have mostly met very interesting people that i’d love to keep as friends for a long long time, and discovered new things everyday, these are the things that keep me stuck with this game ;p

I currently enjoy my virtual life with my special people, and working as a host @ Sanctuary Rock and as a dj @ Sl Addicts. Will be posting about events here too, but this first post is dedicated to all the creators participating in this hunt, i want to thank you all for the awesome gifts you’ve put inside those tainted hearts!!!

Was hard but sooo much fun! Cant wait for the next one!

See you in the grid ;p
