Bad SL

This qualifies as a really BAD night in SL

First, I log on to see myself as this hideous creature! To top it off a male friend was standing across from me (probably in shock) and informed me I was naakked!

uuuh....yup! My fair skin with rosy cheeks is a flat medium tone that looks like the base layer for a dark skinned person before the details come into play in PhotoShop. The pale spots are light coming in a window. Plus my lips and nipples have no color. My eyes have a thick white film over them; they are not totally opaque in appearance.

Then, later when I was logged out, I attempted to back in. The top and bottom bars appeared normal, between the two is a flat white with this:

500 Internal Server Error

An internal server error occurred. Please try again later.

I've never seen this in connection with SL before! There have been plenty of times when I couldn't log back in and it gets upset and says "your account will be available at ___ (5 minutes later). They must be hoping something will distract you and you won't come back.

A Dragon I Love to Be Around

My boyfriend really surprised me a few days ago by saying he thought we should work on a project together or just role play!

I am the queen of the fae in a medieval/fantasy kingdom, so of course I was all for the opportunity to role play with him. As I was wondering "what does he want to be? an elf?" Stani pops up and says he would like to be a dragon! Oh cool! I immediately thought of Grendel's with three floors of creatures. He chose one from their newest line of Avarian dragons. They even come with building supplies for their own cave dwelling and a treasure horde of gold and other items!!

I did not realize that a dragon looks like a huge bunch of gray balloons as it rezzes. This was taken after they became less all encompassing and you could tell it was going to be an animal.

He appears to be a medium-sized dragon, but still I'm amazed he can fit in a house! The black looks velvety to the touch.

This picture is the first time he TP'ed into the central HUB at Erebos in dragon form. Two of my friends hurried over. Galina remarked it was the first time she seen a teal dragon.

Isn't he the cutest thing? He looks like a giant winged puppy wanting to be petted or waiting to be walked (admittedly I am prejudiced).

Trying to stand still while he takes a picture. My stance reminds me of having my picture taken in my new dress when I was in grade school. I hope his turned out better than mine.

RL - Happy Easter!!

I'd like to wish everyone who celebrates it a Warm and Wonderful Easter.

My Easter memories growing up center around my family and the small country church our neighbors went to.
It was as much fun as Christmas until we got to church. There I had to participate in a kids program where I would be nervous, would I remember where to move and when and remember my lines or the words to the song? Stage fright.

The best memories involve Easter Egg Hunts. Mom and then my brother and I, always decorated eggs. She hid them for us, outdoors over our side lawn amongst the grass and flowers, nooks of low branches and in the clothesline pole. On rainy days, indoors. Brave mom with the good nose, always had to find a few later from the odor. She got smart and switched to plastic eggs for indoor hiding.

I always had a new Easter dress for church. I remember a fluffy yellow organza one the year all of the other girls had pink or blue ones. I was the odd chick out and hated it. Now I could handle that with ease. An absolutely beautiful dress was a raspberry cotton sateen bodice and a printed skirt in a rich floral pattern. Very unusual and in excellent taste, it also showed up like a beacon among the other girls. She remembers these two episodes.

The Easter baskets were always so pretty with bright grasses and eggs and candy and goodies. There was the Easter I ate so much of candy, particularly the flat bottomed eggs with hard shells and soft white insides that I was sick to my stomach. I begged mom to make stew for Easter dinner. She looked at me like I had lost my mind and informed me that she wasn't about to make stew after she had gone to all of the trouble to prepare for a nice Easter dinner. I still won't touch those candies. Wayne at work, assures me he will share from the two bags he buys every year!

Mom still provides a large solid chocolate Easter bunny apiece for us each year! I love them, really I do. She wouldn't believe me if she realized I have a stash of them. mmmm....I forget to eat them. I remember them as Easter draws neigh each year.
I am eating one right it last years? The year before?
