In November of last year, Atelier Burgundy & Pitaya teamed up to create a bookstore gacha for Anthem. Fortunately for me, there was a fatpack option. Without any hesitation or even too close of a look, I snatched it up and sat on it for months. I knew a time would come that I would finally create a used bookstore. Well, here comes Anthem with a boho themed round for April and lucky little me, had access to Bueno’s set, as well as THOR’s. Now, get this…InsurreKtion recently invited me to join their blogging team as a VIP and there it was, sitting so pretty in Blogotex! A boho deco set!!! I knew this was it! I quickly rezzed all the things….the bookstore fatpack and all three of my boho sets. But wait, there’s more magic…Mikel Monk, the creator behind the Bueno brand, had named his couch, Kerouac!! Now, I realize there are tons of readers out there that have their own connection to Jack Kerouac, but for a while in college, I was absolutely obsessed. I even had a cat named, Jack Kerouac! I mean, clearly this was a sign, right?
I did my best to list everything in the credits, but as you can see from the photo, I used a ton of items to create my used bookstore. I was picturing one of those really cozy used book stores, that brings in a few treats first thing in the morning with a couple of canisters of coffee, but once those things are gone, that’s it for the day. They sell a variety of collectibles, new and used books, and encourage their customers to hang out.
I typed book and books into my inventory search and just started rezzing out everything. I didn’t bother trying to list every single collection, stack, and row of books, because that would have taken me all day. Let’s face it, I’d rather be reading! I did grab the names of some things, but if you really want to know a specific item in the photo, just let me know. I don’t think I’ll be tearing down this scene anytime soon. ☺
Something deep down Something deep down Something deep down is Tellin’ me “listen to your gut” Your instincts, you should always trust Calling you to run run to and not from When they think they won won let ’em know what’s to come ‘Cause this time around I’ma listen to that Something deep down Every now and then we lose ourselves going round the bend Staying put ’cause I’m too afraid it will end One step back gives me three steps forward It’s your mistakes bring you closer The sun will come up but will I, I, I? It’s written in the stars but do they lie, lie, lie? It’s only up to me to make it right, right, right It’s only up to me to make it right, right, right

Years ago, many many years ago, back in my very young, wild and single days, I used to love going to the laundromat with my roommate. We’d make a day of it and we always had so much fun. We were a wild pair. We’d drag all our laundry down the local laundromat, grab a couple of Diet Pepsis and get to work. The best part was waiting on the clothes to dry. We’d sit on the counter and chat. Sometimes we’d even have a bit of a picnic. There was a sandwich shop right around the corner, so if it was one those big laundry days, we’d grab some lunch for our countertop picnic.
It’s funny how you can have such fond memories of something that just felt like a necessity at the time. It certainly feels like a lifetime ago. Well, it might be someone’s lifetime ago, considering I was around 21 at the time. *laughs* Now, I can’t even remember the last time I went to a laundromat. My anxiety keeps me in the house as much as possible and lucky for me, I have a washer & dryer in my kitchen!
Ok, I’ve stuffed myself with food the way you stuff a plushie at Build-a-Bear! Now, I’m ready for Christmas. No, I don’t mean the dinner, I mean the decorations. I think the delicious food makes me so complacent that I can embrace my belly and laugh right along with jolly ol’ Santa!!! In fact, I might just waddle around behind him and embrace feeling small in his shadow. *laughs* Seriously though, its always been a tradition at my house to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. I’ve never been one to decorate every room in the house. I keep the decor in the living room and dining room, maybe a little ceramic tree in the guest bathroom provided there’s room. Once upon a time, I did the whole yard and lights on the building, but I’m too old and lazy to be climbing on ladders nowadays. Okay, mostly scared and lazy, ok? I’m not the most graceful person on the planet.
One of my best friends in & out of SL is the forever eye rolling Dusty Wasp. He has this gesture that has kind of become a bit of a signature move for him that goes like this:
Ðυѕтч MF’и Wαѕρ: яσℓℓѕ hiѕ мf’η cαятσση єуєѕ ◑‿◐
It has even turned into a gesture for his friends so he doesn’t even have to do it anymore…we just do it for him.
Sᴀᴅʏ Mᴀɴx: яσℓℓѕ dυѕтy’ѕ мf’η cαятσση єуєѕ ◑‿◐
This is one of those things you gotta love about Second Life, right? Gestures. Been many a time I wished for one in the real world. Anyway, as soon as I saw this graphic for the new Arya Top from Miu, I knew this was the one I’d use. I mean, sometimes an eye roll says much more than words, right? I bet there are even some people rolling their eyes at this post. *smirks & rolls her eyes at them*

Okay, this is hands down my favorite of the Prism Events events! Every year, they put together the most amazing event for the month of October. The set up of the event itself is pretty epic. The designers that participate pull out all the stops. Some people say that Christmas is the most magical time of the year, but lets be serious. Halloween is the really magic time! The event will open on Saturday, September 28 and run until Thursday, October 31. If you like Halloween or the supernatural even a little bit, this is an event you do not want to miss. Seriously, at the very least, you’ve got to check out the sim and explore. You won’t regret it!!

I still work with more fashion designers than decor, but I am slowly but surely building up the decor side of things. I fall more and more in love with decor with each scene I create. I tend to spend more time on my decor scenes and sometimes I get more attached to them than I should. This is one of those. I’ll probably remove the shower, the puddle, and the clothes on the floor….perhaps even the shelf behind the tub and the decor on it. That’s manly so I can save prims and space. Just don’t be surprised if you see this bathroom as a background for a fashion shot I do later.

He was a loner. He kept to himself and lived a minimal life. His only relationship was with the old woman at the Quick Shop on the edge of town, where he bought beer and supplies. He didn’t really celebrate holidays, but every year that sweet old woman would give him a box lovingly wrapped with an ornament attached. Inside the box was always the same, a dozen pair of colorful socks. It was the one time a year he smiled.
