Beer and Conversation

I’m getting ready to take a week off, not only from work but also blogging as I’m going to visit M. Yay! I just let that sink in one more time, ha ha. One of the things, there are several, just saying, but one of the things I’m looking forward to is our conversations over meals or drinks. This brings me to an item I really want to show you before I leave.

No. 59 is releasing the F-Class Beer Tap, to match their F-Class Espresso Machine. The beer tap comes in 6 different looks/colours, each in two different versions; with Experience or regular prop attachment. Read the attached notecard for how to add Experience to your land/parcel.

Choose between six types of beer by touching the tap. It then rezzes a mug and you can watch as it pours you your beer of choice. When it’s done pouring, a mug is automatically attached to your hand (with Experience) or it asks to give you the beer (regular prop attach). The mug comes with a hold and drink animation that works together with your AO. The F-Class Beer Tap will be available at this upcoming round of the Man Cave event, opening January 17th!

I will run for ice cream. That’s it. Oh, and if a zombie is chasing me. I keep fit, just in case.

I Dream of Spring

This world is filled with frozen lovers
The sheets of their beds are frightfully cold
And I’ve slept there in the snow with others
Yet loved no others before


These cold dark places
Places I’ve been
In cold dark places
I dream of spring

K.D. Lang – I Dream of Spring

“Be a person who can dream about Spring in the dead of Winter”, said Debasish Mridha. While I do think winter is beautiful, when it’s crisp and clear and the snow covers a frozen landscape. Today is not such a day, or rather, this whole past week. Instead of fresh powdery snow, we have sleet, slush and sticky grit. So I dream of spring; the warmth of the sun, budding trees, flowers in bloom, Dachshund puppies with clean bellies… and You and I, we are always together in my dreams.

A Long Winter

We’re not even half way through January and I’m already waiting for Spring. It’s a while still, until April, which is when we can maybe start seeing any signs of Spring here. We might even get a couple of feet of snow in April so the patience game is real now!

The Young Ginkgo Tree by The Little Branch is lightly animated and comes with a season changer menu. You can just touch it and the menu pops up and you can change from Winter to Spring in just a couple of seconds. It’s Land Impact is 7 out of the box but as it’s Copy/Modify you can resize it to fit your needs. The Young Ginkgo Tree is available at the January round of Equal10 which opens today!

Want a small, open plan house with panorama view? The DaD Glass House is small, only 18.2x 11.2 and 37 Li (resizable, Copy/Mod). It even has a round window in the ceiling so when it’s not covered with snow you can watch the stars from the comfort of your living room. Touch any of the switches inside the house to turn on or off the snowy windows. The snow roof add on is sold separately. You can find the house and the snow add on in the DaD mainstore and marketplace.

Road To Somewhere Else

I am making some changes in my life. Getting out of an unhealthy job is the first step and I handed in my resignation two days ago; after 17 years of serving a government organization’s IT needs, it’s time for a change.

Not going to change the way I blog though, so here’s todays feature which is all about Lapointe & Bastchild‘s newest release; the Havoc Ops Boots and the complementary Havoc Ops Tucked Jeans. The boots fatpack has 20 plain colors in a wide rage plus some seriously lush aged, worn and weathered leathers too. You’ll also find optional socks in the HUD, that will certainly look great with shorts this summer! The boots fit under your Havoc reg and tapered Jeans and Leather Pants but… L&B also decided to do a special edition set of the very popular Havoc Jeans. The Havoc Ops Tucked jeans are designed to work perfectly “tucked” into these new boots – perfect for modern street or roleplayer. Fatpack comes with 12 various denims, 2 camos, 1 graffitti, and 4 twill colors. Optional Belt has new canvas versions and worn paint buckles too! Your Havoc Key Chains will fit the Ops Tucked Jeans, there’s just no end to the great combintaions you can do! Available for Jake, Gianni, Geralt and Slink Male mesh bodies.

Shhh… Let’s Pretend It’s Sunday

I’m trying my best to ignore the fact that it’s Monday and I have a whole week of having to live in my own time zone ahead of me. Get up at 6 am. Walk the puppies. Shower. Feed breakfast to the puppies and myself. Be off to work by 7:30. It’s still dark at 7:30, my brain wants to sleep in. Let’s pretend it’s Sunday?

CHEZ MOI provides us with the perfect place to spend our downtime with the Adore King Bed Set; The bed contains Bento animations, PG (101 animations) and Adult (173 animations) versions available. 36 single animations. Touch the blanket for colour options. The set also includes all the decor shown in my picture apart from the lamp. The lamp is from GOOSE.

We’re getting comfy wearing the His and Her Downtime sets by Allure Couture. PJ bottoms and shirt for the guys and legwarmers and shirt for the women. HUD controlled texture changer for each piece so you can mix and match colours. You can find both sets at this round of the 7Event!
