Week That Was

Funny week really.

Last Friday there were not enough newbies for the blitz so it was opened for all. I wasn't really thinking straight. I jumped into the theme of homewares and just as the time finished I realised I had an urgent RL thing to attend to. I left behind a Sunbeam MixMaster. Complete with turning beaters and bowl. Jumped into car, whizzed around, ran back and the voting and results were all over and all that remained was a small group around my Mix Master. I chatted for a while and was completely gobsmacked to find out that I had won! So overwhelmed that the photos I took remain undiscovered to this day. I was forced to wait until SL survived a long outage and hop in to take some pictures today.
Winning, when it should have been a newbies comp, didn't sit too comfortably so I split the money between the two newbies who participated. The fun is in the building. I am having trouble concentrating on tasks if there isn't a fixed end time and purpose.

The rest of the week trickled by with things of little consequence but fully absorbing all the same.

There was a shopping spree with Wilberforce Beaumont...

I introduced myself to Will a little while back after listening to an impressive display of gibberish through the Caledon chat IM. When I saw him standing in a nearby part of Winterfell, I couldn't resist the urge to make acquaintance with this fellow. Sin
ce then I have had a couple of chats with Mr Beaumont and he is an interesting chap to say the least. He took me on a tour of his home which is mid-construction and we exchanged gibberish in the tower which at the moment is the only furnished spot.
Most recently I noticed him working on the Docks and he
told me that Silent Sparrow was to open a shop there. I am an ignorant, non-shopping av so this meant that Will needed to take me to Silent Sparrow's main store for an introduction. We collected Sandy and Viz along the way. I am now a Silent Sparrow convert!
Will knew the way to a secret room and then my lack of spending funds hurt!
I only had L$85. :(
So I did what I haven't done before and bought Lindens during play time rather than importing through SLexchange which is what I usually do. And purchases were made.....

ere is me in one of the Sparrow outfits with new hair bought from my favourite hair place, Calla. I almost always buy Blond hair with mods. That way I can colour to my hearts content! Clever, eh!?

I am not sure where Auds is going with these.. but I like the look and it suits the themed sims while
not too fussy.

There was more blitz... same deal.....Not enough newbies...Theme "things that fly"
Except that I had some one running IMs in my ear the whole time and I *could not think straight!* Sheesh! The thing I built was horrible. So instead, let's look at pictures of Lukos's witch build which I loved.
And I think my Winterfell clothes suit nicely too!

and strange priests
By now you might realise that the human component of sl is what has me riveted. So when I flew over Winterfell and spied a fully uniformed "Father Saint John" my curiosity is immediately aroused. Who comes into SL as a priest, complete with a pile of Catholic groups under his/her profile. A real priest? A nut case? How old? What mission? Was he praying for me?
I wanted to have a chat with this Father Sinjin, but he wasn't responding . I plan to stalk him!

ohhh and the piano that Lukos is building is almost done.....
Winnifred is all but complete. Unfortunately the but is as big as mine. We need an animation. Lukos computer may or may not be up to the task and I may or may not be up to the task to do it on mine. I have downloaded animation software.. but it is hard.I have no idea how the body moves while playing the piano. I don't watch myself! LOL
Meanwhile, here she is! My part in the project was sculpty pedals. Yes! I downloaded the software and made the first thing! Hooray! I made the texture for hinges and keys. The rest is all Lukos.

Actually it has been a busy week, hasn't it?
