Faerie Circle Magic

Myself and Emy dancing triumphantly after Hawk's departure from a scene where the faerie circle protected us from any foul intent he might have.

Please do join us at this same faerie circle tomorrow, Sunday, for dancing led by Emy at 11am SLT.

Role Play: Lots of Links to My Posts

I've been better at posting on the Chronicles of Erebos for the medieval/role play kingdom, than I have here. So for those readers who enjoy a bit more fantasy in their lives, I have links to my posts below.

There is a Fae Fest this Sunday, 11am-1pm SLT. This is a choreographed dance event for individuals, no partner necessary. My friend Emy guides our steps and it's lots of fun. Everyone is invited. You too! I only ask that you make an attempt at appropriate clothing. Just ask if you aren't sure, and IM me for a TP. I'd love to have you come. *smiles and beckons*

One post on a minstrel and a tournament - sword, joust and fishing. I surprised myself by doing quite well in the fishing tournament.

"Six Little Indians sitting in a row......" waiting for the sword tourney to begin.

One post on the aftermath of a tavern fire (it seems to get it frequently by arson or playful dragons), a drow "questioning" an elf, a haunting, and ending with a picture of myself enjoying the company of a tame wolf.

Justine, one of the tavern wenches, becomes a druid ~ and ~ a haunt in the tavern!

The Christmas Ball for the kingdom.

Jousting comes to the kingdom!

Twelfth Night Celebration

Lady Emy and I went to a Twelfth Night Celebration yesterday. We had a delightful time renewing old friendships and making new ones. And over the course of two hours became totally stuffed on a fine five remove feast.

Emy has done a wonderful job of transforming this RL re-enactment event into an SL role play occurrence for her fae. The Twelfth Night Celebration and The Twelfth Night Feast

She lamented that there was nothing that attracted her on the merchants tables. I, on the other hand, was quite delighted to see Lady Marion with her vast array of silk threads and fine linen spools. I purchased a gold silk for couching and a red and dark blue linen for tablet weaving. Immediately upon strolling up, Marion mentioned that she has been requested to be head cook for an upcoming event and solicited me to aid her.

The Power of Attraction

"You just have to see her to know that she'll break you in two."
This quote is from the YouTube video
The Airborne Toxic Event - Sometime Around Midnight. Essie Radford has a hotlink to it on her blog

It's not that I have any desire to break someone in two, I don't wish for that kind of power over anyone. I am not made that way. But I think perhaps I would like to believe that someone would be swept off their feet simply because I entered the same room and something about me affected them that deeply. It's a bit fairytale princess of me, isn't it?

Work Today.........I Feel Lousy - - RL

I wrote this yesterday morning and meant to post it, but didn't:

Ooohhhh.....I ate something that didn't agree with me yesterday. It was a bad night and a worse morning.
Going back to sleep would be impossible, but heavenly. I want to crawl into a hole with my ginger ale and curl up. Instead I'm getting dressed and going to work, ginger ale in hand. I have a fabric rep today. Thank goodness he isn't set up for all day, I don't think I could handle it. That basically means he is a minor rep = represents fabric manufacturers that are not major players in the market.

Otherwise it would be nine straight hours (with a business lunch) of purchasing decision time for yours truly while I view thousands of fabric samples for hundreds of groups from four to six manufacturers. With him I'll look at about one thousand samples for a few dozen groups and it won't take more than a couple of hours. It would be a piece of cake if I felt good.

I have received about 375 bolts of fabric in the last few days. The manufacturers packing slip had dups on it, determining which took about six man hours each for two people. Getting it checked in, the error handled, dated, coded, priced, space made for it, and put out on the floor is almost finished - the bulk of it probably will be by Monday. Some of it was scanned etc for the website.

It was a hell of a day (sorry).
'm not usually micro-managed; we (dept mgrs & owners) are really stressed. It started with pressure from my boss's mom (in charge of the stock room) regarding the rep (for one thing the person who handles scheduling didn't bring in anyone extra to cover for me), concluding with my boss's brother telling a co-worker and myself something that we do not want to hear and shouldn't at this point, which may or may not be factual. The hours between, working with customers and dealing with the new fabric, were mostly okay. Along with questions from other people, it was peppered with questions from boss's mom, who then ran my answers past her daughter, and come back and reported that she agreed with me. She didn't ask her everything, so I pulled out the folder with my calculations three more times to supply answers. I am very fond of this lady.

I was a wreck last night. Quick to tear up (I'm normally even-keeled for myself, soft-hearted for others). I needed a really good cuddle. Fortunately for me, when I checked email, Stani had the window open while he was working, hoping to catch me. We were able to spend almost two hours together in live chat. It helped.

Then and Now Blogger Challenge

Sophia came up with a simple but popular idea for a blogger challenge -- show yourself as you looked when you started SL and how you look now! Fun!

I rezzed as a human in Feb 2007, and I am still human part of the time. I am also fae (fairy), so just because it's different than most of the bloggers, I decided to show my start as a fae. It was hmm.....late spring 2008. I didn't have a wardrobe or a skin, so it was almost like being a newbie.

Even so I was very pleased with my look. The dress and wings are from my freind Rose Farina's shop RPC/Rose Petal Creations. Here is my first post Fae? Who Me?

I was thrilled with the skin - a sim opening gift from Tulli, you can just barely see pale stars over my eyebrows. The Maiden hair is from Bewitched (now Hairy Situations).

Fast forward to today. I usually wear long gowns, this one is from my favorite shop for role play, Caverna Obscura. It also has a short skirt option. My wings are almost always from Fancy Fairy; Violaine Villota is very talented.

The skin is Bella II from Pulse. and Hair is Helen from Calico Creations and the wonderful rose wreath is from MandyMandy McMillan.

I am thinking of changing to Cupcakes new Embrace skin, but I do want to keep Casandra the fae queen a little otherworldly, rather than like a beautiful human. Sidhe traditionally have unusual eyes, but I keep my own (one-of-a-kind Christmas gift from ex-bf).

Christmas Ball

I finally put up pictures of the Christmas Ball held in Kingdom on the Chronicles of Erebos blog. My friend and outstanding choreographer, Emy lead the couple dances for the event.

I think I am behind in everything I need or want to do in both worlds. My goal this year to to get myself organized and manage time more effectively.

Ch'Know & Friends Ring In 2010

**NOTE** If you can't see all of the pictures, please try hitting refresh a few times. ******

A couple of days before the new year someone wished for a something to do for new years in the Ch'Know group chat. I think it was Tym. Ali worked her magic and threw together a celebration! She was smart and scheduled it for Dec 30th, knowing almost everyone would be ringing in the new year in RL rather than SL.

Ali, DJ and hostess and Gahum

Melanie, GoGo and Fricker dancing the night away

Dazz and Shelly


Nikki and Eva, two very attractive ladies

Jerremy and Tym bouncing to the beat

Cas and Stani - we were so out of synch. He looks like he is sprinkling me with sparkles!

Aisuru as graceful and delightful as always.

I thought I would pop into SL and wish my friends a "Happy New Year" after celebrating in in RL. Nope, I didn't make it into SL. I hope you all had someone to share the entrance of the new year with in one of your worlds. And that it will be a joyous and satisfying twelve months for you!
