You blink and a week goes by....YIKES!

I wandered in here daily when I seemed to have enough mental bandwidth to cobble together a few thoughts and get called away before I could actually write anything beyond a sentance...

I'd last left off with the following:

Here we sit at the midweek point and I'm trying to recall what I did on the weekend and the realized it was all rather about forced socializing.

You know...the kind you do because you have to and not because it was anything you dreamed up yourself. *heh*

On the Saturday we attended a BBQ

....

Okay so now to finish that thought.

We attended a BBQ of friends of the Bob's. He's coached their daughter for years & has come to enjoy the company of her father while my middling child is very close with the girl ~ so we finally made the time to take up an invitation from them for a 6 hour tete-a-tete by the barbie and it when all very well...except for that fact that half the time I felt I was out-squirreled by the hostess who is waaaay more random conversation-wise that moi. Let's just say that I was exhausted from the verbal pingpong and shoveling food in my piehole.

The next morning we had to attend ...no wait...I had to PARTICIPATE in my neice's baptism. I had been chosen as Godmother to the new baby, and while my sister-in-law knows full well that I am perhaps the least religious of her hubbers' family, she still chose to honor me with the role if I was willing to accept it. I couldn't say no to my favorite sis-in-law...and the right to call Elizabeth ~ LIZZY!, and so it goes. Pira in church on Sunday ...in a dress...saying prayers as my brother-in-law strained to keep a straight face while nudging me with his foot every time I had to say amen and/or cross myself or agree to something the priest said.

I just hoped I wouldn't have to dodge any lightening bolts.

That was followed by hours of socializing and eating...because I hadn't had enough of that 12 hours earlier....

And because I hadn't talked enough I probably clocked a few hours in there somewhere talking at Xan while playing with my nekogirl (points at image) in SL and learning some more ropes along the way.

More about that later.
  • When I first saw the pic of the nekogirl, I went OMG! and thought you'd bought yourself another gorgeous doll. And then I noticed it was CG and went oh pooh.

    I get to miss the forced family socializing on Sunday (taking in a doll meet instead). I'm quite pleased about that *grins*.
    • Actually....funny you should mention that.

      IF...IF...I am a very good girl and manage to keep myself out of the doll buying mode for a good 6 months ~ then I'm ordering at Xmas a Souldoll Amy and will be reproducing my avatar in 3D.

      :)

      ...and you SHOULD be pleased to be able to scam your way out of a family fling and go play with dollies. GOOD FOR YOU!! *^__^*
      • Oh, she's quite the pouty little thing. Did i ever show you the boy who's going to get turned into a catboy? I might be getting him ahead of poor Jolen if he's only on sale for July.
        • Oh Oh ...no you didn't. Share share?? yes??!!
          • Stumbled upon him purely by accident as I was looking for cat ears (don't ask. you know how that stuff happens).

            http://www.camelliadynasty.cn/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5&products_id=13

            He's 42cm tall and just freaking adorable. I will be sending him out to a modder to hack off his human ears and I'll be ordering the cat ears they have on this site to replace the ones getting sawn off. He's going to have wine coloured hair, red cat eyes and his name is....

            Kysmirhea Kamlo Khalil

            He's a pushy little bottom with a love of hot pants and sexy boots. He's going to bedevil the hell out of Jolen *snicker*.
            • Oh cripes but doesn't he alreadly look like a cat that has got into the cream?

              *cough*

              Pushy little bottom indeed! He's going to be AWESOME and hawt too :)
              • That's one of the things I love about this hobby. The amazing things you stumble upon when (mostly) minding your own business.

                My goal will be to find him the appropriate clothes. I've seen the hot pants but I think they were SD sized. And I can sooooo see him in the hooker boots *snicker* as that's pretty much what he's doing when Jolen first meets him in a bar.

                Certainly can't kick at the price and when I asked around DoA about him, the people who'd bought dolls from this company said the resin was nice and they were great little posers.
    • The Amy, by the by, is MSD sized and has the closes facial sculpt I've been able to find to match the avatar...which I have tweeked to suit my tastes.

      ...and yes I'd paint her up with leopard spots and make her ears etc....
  • Oooh, your nekogirl looks quite lovely. *smile* I'm still staying away from that site with firm determination, but your girl does indeed seem to fit right in with your doll theme.

    Impossible, I realize, but I'd like to see your Inari doll (the fox spirit? am I remembering that correctly?) next to this online image. Too bad they can't actually sit next to each other. *smile*
