Tiggaa's GIS Event: Victorian Skating!

I attended Tiggaa's GIS event today, which had λરίε (Arie Sewell) as the DJ.

The theme was Victorian Skating, and the set was absolutely beautiful!

I danced with Laila first, wobbling around on my skates and threatening to drag her down with me to the slippery ice, but I managed to steady myself with her help.

I then danced with O-girl Kaer (Kaerlove) for the rest of the time, until I had to leave for home in RL about halfway through the dance .

More pics of the event below. Thanks to Laila (lelie Baxton) for most of the great pics. I cannot believe how much better her resolution and color palette is compared to what I see! And thanks to Tigga for hosting and organizing such a fun event and such an amazing venue!

Cool Cats in the Cafe

I didn't realize the cool cats with Linda's sunglasses are still at the Cafe *smiles*

Let it not be said that I don't have the thanksgiving spirit

Nothing says "Macho" like riding on my fair steed
Meli and I were hanging out at our home at Sailors Cove South, when she decided we should get into the spirit of this decidedly non-British holiday (Linda once called it the "F* You Holiday" when it came to the Brits).

I must admit we looked quite dignified *reaches up to take a turkey leg, then munches thoughtfully on it*

Linda's Top 5 Cheek Hurt Moments

Linda has a beautiful southern voice, but I think what attracts me more is her laughter and her great sense of humor.

She loves to laugh, and in fact when I first met her, the top line on her profile was "live, love, laugh often....".

Her repertoire ranges from mischievous giggles, to audacious snorts, to long silences where she has literally lost her breath laughing.

I love hearing her laugh, the sounds of her happiness, and without further ado, here are what i think are the top 5 moments when Linda laughed so hard that she started snorting or even (and I quote her) her cheeks actually hurt:

1. Sake Time (2016-10-29)

It was a Saturday night....I had been imbibing half a bottle of sake (which is 15% alcohol by volume) and was kinda buzzed...and me and Linda were voicing with Aqua at the Cafe.

Somehow it had gotten into my mind that blow drying one part of me after an ice cube massage would be a GOOD IDEA! Don't ask me how I got the idea, but I'm pretty sure Linda had something to do with it....*mutters under breath*

I prepared all the items, all the while hearing Aqua and Linda laughing like loons and worrying about the police finding me electrocuted in a puddle of water with a blow dryer in one hand.

I remember Meli IMing me to go to a party, and me telling her I was too busy blow drying my you know what...she had replied in typical deadpan British fashion "Of course you are."

2. Dancing MK (2015-9-17)

It was the Austin 7th Anniversary Week and Linda and I were attending WW's Bound or Undressed Party Game.

I was participating in the game, but I have to admit the only reason I was competitive was because both Linda and Meli were feeding answers to me. Yes, subs are frequently smarter than the Doms!

Anyways, Linda was already giggling over the way I was trying to answer the questions when she gave me some object, and asked me to wear it.

Being the innocent and trusting soul that I am (and being really busy concentrating on the game), I donned the object and suddenly found myself dancing!

It was River Dance, and I must have looked kinda funny dancing it because Meli, Avril (?) and Linda started laughing hysterically.

In between bouts of giggling and snorting, Linda gave me another object, and when I donned it, I now started dancing like a 1920s flapper, which caused the girls to laugh even harder.

Suffice it to say, that was the last Bound or Undressed game WW did in a long time ;-)

3. MK arrested (early 2016)

I was in voice chat at Starbucks when I suddenly had to move my car. I switched on the car and slowly moved to another spot, but as I struggled with the headphones and earplugs and mouse that were in the way, I could hear shrieks of laughter coming from the earphone.

I started cursing as I went up one of the islands in the parking lot, and this induced more fits of laughter from the ungrateful %^%$^$&%$ who were allegedly my friends.

Anyways, once I got settled back down, Linda said (in between lots and lots of snorting and giggling) that they thought i was being arrested, and they had all quieted down to hear how it went.

Obviously, this made me realize who my real friends are....

4. ADD and ADHD (2016-6-24)

During a voice chat at Austin, Ratzu asked Linda about why she had covered the girl posters in the room with sunglasses, and I told him it was because she had ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), which caused a fit of snorting in my little boo when she tried to explain it and then couldn't after her mind started to wander..she also started pretending to be one of the rock band AC/DC after I said AC/DC instead of ADD.

5. Mushrooms and Submarines (2016-10-21)

At one voice chat, I mentioned that Linda calls me the "Submarine" (I should not need to explain that reference for those who know me well! *grins proudly*), at which point my boo countered that she actually calls me "Mushroom", all the while giggling mischievously.

Woland asked whether it was because I released torpedoes sporadically, and Sage wondered whether it's because Linda "kept me in the dark and fed me bullshit" (!!!), but Linda smoothly noted it's because I was her "Umbrella of Love" hahahaha...rigggghhhhht!!!!


Extreme Cold (2016-9-9)

At another voice chat recently, we were talking about the effects of extreme cold, and I in my most logical frame of mind, noted that due to higher insulation, cold would have less of an effect on overweight people. This caused Linda, obviously in her PC frame of mind, to start laughing like a loon and exclaiming to me "don't! don't go there!" and that what i was saying was basically that "we should send out the fat people cuz they would last longer" in the cold. To his credit, RB noted that I was probably right due to spherical objects having less surface to volume ratios.

Oh, in that chat we also talked about surviving extreme cold by crawling into the body of a dead animal, surviving extreme cold by masturbating, and what appendages might break off in the cold, and masturbating next to a police a car...with no trousers on....and a dead animal by your side...which caused more fits of laughter from everyone.

Well, there you have it folks...the top 5 cheek hurt moments of Linda!

I noticed five of the top 6 are actually fairly recent (in 2016), but unfortunately that's an artifact of the fact I've forgotten a lot of other stuff in the past. Oh well.

I hope you enjoyed that list, and please come back again next time for another episode of..."As Linda's World Turns"...and turns...then turns some more...then loosens and rolls down the drainage ditch...

Curi's Thank You Dance

New O-girl Curi (CuriousHeart Loordes ) held a Thank You dance on November 17. The venue was created by Curi herself, and the spinner of music was Dj Ariana Petrova.

People were supposed to wear an outfit that reflected something they were thankful for, and earlier in the day I talked to Meli while she created boxes that had textures of her friends on it! ;-)

Linda and I ended up as part of her triangular hat.

For myself, I created a flat board that was transparent on one side, but which rotated pictures of Linda on the other, back, side.

I danced mostly with the lovely Sage, who had an outfit with lots of tiny pics of Billy on it.

More pics from the event...thank to Curi for hosting such a fun event, with lots of laughter and good camaraderie x

A new route to Siren's Isles on the Linda Lou

I had some free time Saturday night, so I took the Linda Lou out for a spin.

I had been thinking about the new route that we had discovered between our place and the Galaxy cruise ship, and I determined to explore that route further.

On the way to the Galaxy cruise ship, I found a slew of sailboats moored along an island, and when I stopped to investigate found that it was a sailing club called Fisher's Island Club, and that it was directly across from the Cooper Creek Wilderness Area that I had visited in early 2015.

The place was anchored by a clean homey looking structure.

And there were a variety of sailboats flying different flags moored next to it.

It had a vast space inside, probably for dancing.

And even a piano, which I tried out.

In RL i can play the organ, and I first met my baby at the chamber while playing the piano there. Alas, Linda didn't show up again this time when I played it.

I continued on, passing the huge 3-sim Galaxy.

I noticed a tiny island to one side of the ship that functioned as the Galaxy Marina, and stopped to look it over. I had noticed people lounging here, probably fishing earlier, but there was no one there when I visited it last.

From there I sailed west before turning north and passing through a rather narrow channel formed by the tiny islands in Honah Lee South.

Once I passed these groups of islands, I turned northwest and soon came upon Sirens Isles, where I discovered to my surprise a somewhat large group of boats clustered among the various isles.

There was even one boat that had a small gathering taking place, with maybe 5 people crowded into the smaller boat, which i believe was the same model as my old Wallaby sailboat.

There were other boats moored as well:

It was an idyllic moment, and I spent some time just relaxing and looking at the place.

Sirens Isles has always been one of my favorite destinations in SL

After awhile I realized it was getting late, and raised my sails and headed back towards Sailors Cove South.

I resolved that one of these days I would bring along a few friends on one of my jaunts, similar to the trip we had made with Billy and Sage.
