Oh no, it’s another blog meme!

I intended to make an outfit post today (which I might still do that a little later), but I saw something in Strawberry Singh’s blog that called out to me. Procrastination. My favourite activity! I can definitely take a little procrastination to help me with that inventory organization I am desperately trying to avoid.

Without (much further) ado:

1. What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often? 6/17/2012, angeltrip. This is not my first SL avatar, but I never used my previous ones. I’d never had a computer that could properly run Second Life. Aside from that, it was so confusing when I signed on the first few times that I didn’t want to continue trying to play it! This is my third or fourth registered avatar, but I have no idea how to log onto the other ones anymore.

2. Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life? I never went through this stage. I learned SL with my real life friends and they are who I have always talked to and hung out with in the game.

3. Where do you spend most of your SL time now? On a pose stand at home, generally naked, or at least bald. I’m hardly ever properly dressed unless I’m going into public. Sometimes I will also dance while I’m afk, and I am generally always at least partially afk while online.

4. Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one) Emi!

5. What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one) Oh, this is a hard one! If I had to pick just one thing, I’d say my petite avatar. There is something that is so charming in them. I like being a tiny person every once in a while, though it’s difficult to do in some places because of the camera issues.

6. The last thing you purchased in Second Life? Lindsay by erratic. Watch out for that post!

7. What color clothing does your avatar wear most often? Black. I don’t own many colourful things.

8. Do you prefer to walk, run or fly? I prefer flying, definitely. I don’t do it in small stores or near to the ground to avoid possibly annoying someone, though. I get a little sad if I’m in a large sim and find it no fly. I can understand in some sims, but in others..

9. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL? My friends and I do a lot of weird things like riding upside down in go karts and having random dance-offs, but nothing too “crazy”. (Seriously, I’m like the most boring person ever.)

10. Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife? This beautiful lady.

I’ve been wearing these cute Vintage Roller Skates from The Secret Store ever since I got them. Currently in a gacha at The Arcade, these cute skates come in so many colours, but my favourite is the one I’m wearing, black neon. I love these skates so much that I had to make a whole pose set for them!

I decided to finally take these babies for a proper spin at a rink, but, well..

Better luck next time?

I saw this meme in Emi’s blog, that originated from the talented Strawberry Singh, and thought I might as well jump on the band wagon (even if a little late).

Seven SL Facts:

1. I have a low end laptop that wasn’t made for programs like SL, and so I constantly run on low settings with horrible FPS. Nevertheless, I like to go sightseeing and try to turn my options up when I can in order to see things closer to the way the creators intended. Sometimes I get a little bummed out when I see my friends and their constantly beautiful surroundings. One day I’ll be able to get another laptop, I hope!

2. After seeing the beautiful creations in the game, I’m trying to learn how to create some things myself. A challenge given fact one, but I’m happy to undertake it.

3. My inventory is a complete mess. I created folders inside of folders inside of folders.. 40000 items later and I’m so lost. I have a hard time deleting things in order to cut down because it’s sooo disorganized.

4. I really, really love horns. I only have a small collection right now, but I’m always looking to grow it.

5. My favourite thing to do is sit on random things. Whenever I see something, my first reaction is to want to sit on it. I get really sad when I can’t sit on things. It’s weird!

6. I also really like to dance for no reason, especially while walking. I like walking in poses, too.

7. I love using SL as a platform to stay in touch with the people I care about. No matter where I am in the world, I can pop on and see any of my best friends, and we can even go out and do fun things together. It’s the best part of SL!

Even if I don’t have many interesting facts, it was fun to think about! I’ve come to the conclusion that my second life is really, really boring, though..

Thanks for reading anyway!

I need to apologize for my lengthy absence from the internet. I had some real life changes that directly influenced my computer time, and for a while, SL had to fall by the wayside for me. Things are a little more stable now, so I hope that they continue to get better so that I can stay here for good!

It seems my return happened at a good time. The Arcade is in full swing for the month with some of the cutest things I think I’ve ever seen. My favourite thing by far is the Auxiliary Wild Rumpus Rompers. Emi and I fell into the trap of the cute and spent waaay too much money completing our outfits, but I have absolutely no regrets!

Photo by the always wonderful Emi! Thank you!

There are several different combinations you can make with a base romper by simply adding a tail and hood, which is an excellent idea given that the items come as separates from a gacha. Though collecting items this way can admittedly be a little frustrating, I would recommend anyone who likes adorable to pick up these rompers while you still can.

I do plan to continue my posts about the Envious Halloween hunt, but I wanted to take a minute to talk about something I’m really excited about.

Gempandas are an upcoming breedable that have a lot of people very excited. I don’t know much about breedables myself, but a few of my friends are involved in the market, and have told me that Gempandas are quite innovative. These are more than just breedables: they are also a mini game.

In addition to being breedables, they also have a secondary function of hunting for treasure ingredients. You can use the ingredients to make magic potions, which you can then use in their spellcasting tournaments for prizes. You can also sell the ingredients and resulting potions if the tournaments aren’t your thing. Coupled with the idea that the pandas are low lag/prim and are inexpensive to keep, the Gempandas system is shaping up to be something both profitable and really fun!

They’re preparing for beta testing at the end of the month. To get involved, all you need to do is join the in world group, and you’ll be offered a panda when they’re released. Until then, they’ve been teasing us with cute things like screen pets and the most adorable shoulder pets you have ever seen.

I got the chance to own one of these shoulder pets, and they are completely wonderful. They have smooth animations, very lifelike, and don’t just stay put on your shoulder. They venture up on to the top of your head, and climb up your chest when they get a little restless. The shoulder pets are not breedables, so you can’t use them in the mini game, but then they also do not require food, run away, or die. (I’m hoping for the chance to own a little shoulder pet who looks like a real life red panda, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!)


Currently, the amazing Gempanda team have a booth up at The Breedables Fright Night Expo. For as long as the expo lasts, there are fun events everyday, from the Gempanda team as well as the teams responsible for other types of breedables. (The sim is having some issues as of this post, but hopefully it will be sorted out soon!) You can buy a Halloween edition shoulder pet and a potion to make your real Gempanda into a Halloween panda after the launch, both available together for only L500 at the Gempanda booth.

So join the group, visit the website, and take in the information. Don’t miss the chance to become a beta tester for the cutest thing to happen to the grid!
