Alice in Wonderful-land

This gorgeous setting feels like a wonderland to me, but I decided to call it wonderful-land because really, it is! The owners of Something New -props and poses / Something Erotic – props and poses, have created a photo-land and made it available for group members to access. There are so many scenic spots packed into this location you will definitely be seeing more of it featured in my posts. These photos were taken in a small building set over the water so there were lots of beautiful shots with the water glimmering in the background, and I love the effect of the shadows cast by the windows. My violin prop and pose is from Something New, so be sure to head to the mainstore to pick this up and then join the group to enjoy this special location.

My gorgeous gown is titled Alice and is another fantastic find at Azul. The underskirt comes in two lengths and then you add a corset style top that features lacing to match the color of the overskirt, in this case a lovely soft champagne tone. The overskirt and the cuffs are both flexi so you get wonderful movement with this gown something I tried to capture in these photos. For all other details , scroll down past the last photo.

I figured it out. 
I am pretty much done with people invading my space.  I saw a meme that said, “someone just honked to get me out of my parking space faster so now I have to sit here until both of us are dead.”  I so relate to that.
I have done that.
Please don’t judge me, unless you truly admire me for that and want to speak publicly on it … then please, you have my blessing.
I have tried.  I do try.  I start my day with my polite, tolerant underwear strapped on but by midday, after being bumped and walked into, pushed and shoved . . .  I am pretty much unstrapped and going commando.

lop1 
Take sidewalks.  You have people going each way.  Logic says there are two traffic streams, divide the sidewalk in half, one side goes one way, the other side goes the opposite way.   This allows the free movement of both sides and is fair.  The only rule is, “keep to your side of the sidewalk.”  I assure you I am not a rocket scientist even though I wear glasses, am wearing a white lab coat, and look incredibly intelligent.  Oh ya, and the pointer … well … I think I was born with that.  However, if you and your entire cheerleading squad are walking down the street together, side by side, taking up the WHOLE sidewalk, and you meet oncoming traffic . . . a collision is imminent.  If someone is coming, you have to know that one of you needs to move over.  It is not really fair to expect that one person coming the opposite way on THEIR side of the sidewalk, to step into the street and be hit by a bus.  Just one of you.  So that maybe instead of walking 12 abreast, you walk 11.  I know you can do it.  There has to be some intelligence to be able to understand how to rhyme words, doesn’t there?  Someone?  Please let’s not stereotype women in here.  
After encounters with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, three very large families with 6 or more children and 4 prams, a marching band and numerous large groupings of Sumo wrestlers, I was done.  I was clipped, bumped, smashed into, and twirled around.  I walked around and side-stepped so many people that I probably added enough extra mileage to have walked half way across the country.  And on top of that, you have the people who stop, right in the path of all oncoming traffic. They stop to chat, to check their purse, to fight, to decide where to have lunch and to elect a new cheerleading captain.   Then there are those that just suddenly stop and you end up with whiplash from having to avoid hitting them.  After a few hours of that, anything I choose to do in response comes under the heading of justifiable homicide and I will kill anyone who disagrees with me. 
Once I snap I am done.  I snap,  I plant, and I stand.  I was on the provincial champs girl’s football team.  They can either die or move around me.  Their choice.  Cheerleaders … my ass …
Buffets – where everyone flows in one direction, except the woman who steps in front of the oncoming traffic and hugs the inner track, picking off what she wants.  Polite people, still in possession of their polite underwear, step back and watch her grab the piece of roast beef their fork was poised for.  I plant.  I can spend hours looking at the desserts, deciding …. for no other reason than I saw her eyeing it and starting her move – in for the kill.  She will have to go around and miss out on the puff pastries.  I smile at her and hope she enjoys her jello – the only dessert left accessible to her.   Why does an entire line of people give into her rudeness??
Grocery stores, same thing.  I don’t care if they have a bigger trolley and are assuming the inside track bumping off people as they go and then blocking the way for me to reach the milk.   I want milk and this person denies me.  Any other person in the store, once they notice someone is waiting, usually apologizes or asks if they are blocking the way and they move their trolley a bit too share the item.  These people don’t realize there is anyone else on planet earth besides them.  I watch.  I know they are going to want the butter and it is completely contained behind me and my shopping cart.   And the stand-off begins.  I see you and I am not moving.  Best call your therapist.
I hate it when my husband shows up and drags me off to the check-out lane asking me if I have lost my mind.  I thought men were supposed to be putty in your hand when you hand them your underwear in public.  Mine just made me go sit in the car and wait for him anyway.
But it is not just the bumping people, it is everyone who stands too close to you, invading your personal space.  Like trying to fill out your personal information on the doctors form at the front desk and you can’t write on the one line because some ladies hair is draped over it because she is leaning over your shoulder to read what you are writing. 
And what about the people that crowd you at the checkout when you have to input your pin number?  Or in an elevator – just two of you and the person has to stand almost touching you?
No matter where my hubby parks, people park next to him … even when there are 132 empty lanes between him and any other cars when he parks.   If we pick the table at the far end of the restaurant, away from everyone else … the nest 8 parties that come in will all sit next to us.  If we sit in a row way in the back of the theatre … 100 people show up to sit all around us leaving the rest of the theatre almost empty.  What a waste of awesome lipstick and velcro closed clothing.

lop 3
Nowadays I just insist we both take our hula hoops with us when we go out.  It is amazing how people back away when you are hula hooping.  It may be a thin tube of neon plastic but people fear it.  I am pretty sure that is why the back off, they don’t want to be accidently hit?  Because it can’t be that we look stupid because we both have high IQ’s and we can hula hoop, let me tell you.   It is perfect when both of us are doing it but also works well if one writes, or grabs the milk, while the other hula hoops people out of the way.
I made suspenders and a brace that attaches to our underwear so that we can just secure the perimeter of our space.  Once an Asian man was standing inside the hula hoop with my hubby but once hubby started hula hooping and really thrusting his hips … the man left.  I have no idea how he got in there … but ewwwww!
The only problem is, wearing a hula hoop definitely makes your ass look fatter, but then, can you really put a price on privacy?

LEA10 by Bufera Resident

*****************************************************************************************************************************

The LEA is pleased to announce the twelfth round of Artists-in-Residence, who will receive a full 
sim for six months on which to create and display their proposed projects:

     nanki Hendes(Cassie Parker)
     JenniferMay Carlucci
     Duna Gant
     NaTaS Janus
     Thickbrick Sleaford
     Nibby Riddler
     Venus Adored
     FreeWee Ling
     Gem PREIZ
     Betty Tureaud
     Jo Willimas

     Methias Kira
     Noke Yuitza
     Frankx Lefavre
     Sniper Siemens
     Solkide Auer
     Artistik Oluja
     Art Eames
     Norton Lykin        

 The LEA received 35+ high-quality applications, and it was a difficult decision, but those selected submitted outstanding proposals that represent a diverse range of virtual art. While some may be artists returning for a second round, the majority will be exhibiting at the LEA for the first time. Projects range from full-sim immersions, to innovative builds geared specifically for multimedia works such as sound and machinima projects.

Artists will have up to four months to build their projects, with all exhibits set to be open by end of April. Many will likely open sooner, though, so keep an eye on this blog for announcements of exhibit openings and related special events.

The previous eleven rounds of LEA land grant artists-in-residence have resulted in some truly exceptional works, and we anticipate this next group to be just as fantastic. Congratulations to all the artists, we can’t wait to see your vision!

Fris’ Land

By – Ziki Questi’s Blog. Visit Fris’ Land for original post.

Many picturesque wintery sims are popping up left and right in Second Life, and one that’s sure to warm the hearts of many explorers is Fris’ Land, created by Charlie Namiboo and Frislanda Ferraris. In summer 2016, the popular sim they had created in partnership with Annabelle Barzane — Frisland (read here) — closed after a great two-year run in which one of the seasonal designs was a snow-covered landscape. Now, for a limited time, that landscape has had a revival of sorts, and previous visitors to Frisland are certain to travel down memory lane at Fris’ Land.

“Yes, Frisland, the original one, has gone for good,” says Charlie. “But Frislanda Ferraris, my building partner and best friend, has his own sim (the region name is Liebe, the German word for ‘love’). Half of the sim Fris has rented to friends of his; the other half belongs to him. He asked me if I’d help him to rearrange the sim and decorate it for winter and so we did. And as we know that many people are missing the old Frisland sim, we decided to open his own region to public for at least two months. The name ‘Fris’ Land’ is a wordplay reminiscing the old Frisland and Fris himself.” There is, of course, similarity to the English word “freeze,” which makes it all the more appropriate.

As Charlie notes, Fris’ Land is only half the sim of Liebe, but the other parcels on the region are so closely matched in spirit that everything appears to be one big seamless whole. (Charlie and Fris send assurances that their neighbors across the small waterway are OK with visitors, as long as people respect the privacy of their homes.) Visitors will find spots to relax, cuddle, or even ice skate. The sim’s tranquil lavender windlight setting is depicted in these images (watch Flickr for higher resolution versions).

Fris’ Land: a little treat in Second Life
