lil kittehz and lil devils

For those who are interested: My "lil" kitteh (13 pounds) Henry is slowly getting better. It was heartbreaking watching him trying to walk after the narcosis and surgery, always falling, looking helplessly. I was holding him in my arms for hours, let him sleep in my bed (which means, that I didn't get much sleep...), but today he looks much better. Sleeping a lot, still a bit dizzy. I hope, he's doing much better soon.

So, as my last two days been a bit stressy with the lil kittycat, we had a relaxed and fun time yesterday. Making a surprise rezzday-party on the Isle for Mick with Heloq as DJ. It was fun with Mick, Heloq,  Kyne, Conny, Shtax, Jaap, Freki, Rio, Rafa, Parzi, Teale, Wil, Almazy, Eili, Aeneas, Milo... and finally my Kenshi for three slow-dances (Hope I didn't forget anyone).

After the guests were gone way behind midnight, I held my lil happy devil for a while, we enjoyed the view at night over the island and cuddled a while. Nice evening it was.

I'm out of titles

Another week gone without an entry. And I don't even remember what was going on. My Kenshi ill. My RL-kitteh very ill too yesterday and at the pet's hospital. Gets all teeth extracted. The kitteh, not Kenshi.
Some RP also, but I was too tired for a continuing storyline and after 10+ hours RL-work on Saturday and Sunday I wasn't really fit for RP.

Oh, been to the slave-hunt at the harvest-festival in the group-alliance cluster. Was fun, but the rules were a bit messy, I think. (Or me too tired and exhausted to understand them)

Trying to write articles about RP for the group-alliance/Tabor. Well, they will think they don't need it, so I have the feeling it's just a waste of time...

Dancing yesterday with my lil bro Mick who had his rezzday and Jaap (from our island) and Rio and Nevie joined us, dancing to Heloq's tunes.

What else is new? I don't remember. RL-issues and some inworld-disappointments don't leave me in the best mood. Well, it's autumn, that's always this special time....

and yet another one

Has it really been almost a week I wrote my last entry? Whoa! Well, busy week it was. But now it finally will get a bit better as I worked a lot on the Isle so it finally got up for RP again on Friday.

As usual we were running out of prims, so I took off our private penthouse high over the island. Been a bit sad doing that, because I really like it, but we have another parcel with our lovely cottage and it would be unnecessary to have three instead of only two (Gor and Earth) homes.

I don't remember when it was - thursday or friday - when I was running around as tigers Freki (+ Byakko + Jinx) and hunting deer in the woods. That was fun!

Not much time on the weekend due to RL-work. And then.... the Gorean RP-server is back. And it made me a bit angry. Not, that it is back, but the way how it was done. For all non-Goreans here a small explanation: You have a server in Gor, where you store goods like salt, wine, meat etc. Others (raiders, thieves) can steal from these servers, so you better hide them well and the challenge is, to find them and steal from them (in RP!). The goods are also used for trades, if someone is captured.
To fill the servers, you need to produce goods and trade them. Therefore you have units like blacksmith, a medical bowl and a brewery. They produced a certain amount of goods per day. And the less they produced, the more worthy was the good (like 1 paga per day, but only 1 kalana each 4th day).
So, in the past you could have all three units in any SIM (not only Gorean) producing all goods they could produce around the clock. That flooded the economy of course. Often slaves were traded for 50 bags of salt or something, which is ridiculous, as 1 bag of salt normally is the price to trade for an Ubar or very high caste member.
So a while ago the creators of the system decided to stop that inflation and changed the system. Now you can only have one unit on your SIM and only when it is a registered Gorean SIM and you have only one good to produce in this unit. - Which is okay so far. BUT: The older players, which produced zillion of goods before, still had their zillion of goods. So, that's a bit unfair to the new players, but well, life isn't fair, especially not Gor.
What finally made me angry now is, that they disabled the servers again without any warning. They were disabled for weeks. And as finally the new version was back, every item you kept in your inventory and not in your old server, suddenly is worthless! That's hard for us, because due to the repairations on the island, we had emptied our servers and kept it all in our inventory, till we finished. But then we couldn't put it back into it, as the servers were disabled. Grrrrrr!
Well, now we either have to become thieves or we have to make a lot of captives to get some goods. *heh*

Okay, what else? Hm, made some pictures yesterday of my boy Brian, now called "Eagle". We're becoming a zoo! *lol* Tiger, Dragon, Wolf, Fox, Eagle....

He looks so lovely and cute. I'm very proud of all my cute boys. I think the picture became pretty nice:

Later my other boy and lil bro Mick/Wolf joined us and I took some pics of the two love-birdies. Watched them dancing in the nightsky, which was just lovely and you could feel the love in the air, causing me pleasurable shivers. They are so purrfect for each other, like my Kenshi and me.

I love this one, as it looks a bit like the Gorean paintings I've seen.
I just love to play with the sky-settings:

As I finally went to bed with my two lovely boys, I took a last picture. The lighting with the gamma gave it a certain "comic"-look, which I liked very much. Brian looks so peaceful sleeping, Mick looking at him with loving eyes and me watching over them. - One of those pics you make by coincidence and you would never be able to catch the moment if you would plan it:

another weekend over

Did I mention that I hate weekends? However, it's over now. \o/ YAY! \o/

In the few hours I was at home and "home" (SL with my beloved ones) I was building most of the times or showing guests around the island. So, there's not much to tell.

Made some pictures of my boy wolf yesterday:

Luke, I am your fasa!

Just a few hours before 11 hours hell of RL-work is waiting for me; time enough for some notes, though there's not much to tell.

Most important: My Kenshi finally is back! \o/ Yay! \o/ After cuddling and slow-dancing a while in the gazebo, he wanted us to buy tuxedos. Mmmmm, he's looking so good in it! He wanted to go to a jazz/blues-club and I remembered Spanki mentioning Hotlanta several times, so  I asked Teleny for the LM and we tried that. I liked the cars parking in front of the club and we.... uhm... "borrowed" one. *hehe* Made me feel like 30s or something... Thinking of "Cabaret" and "Victor/Victoria". Somehow I always think in movies. - However, it's a nice club for blues and jazz, though the music wasn't exactly, what we were looking for. Well, it was good music, but not for cuddling slow-dances with hands secretely moving under jackets, under buttoned shirts, carressing the skin under the fabrics.... If you know what I mean. *winks* But we got tired anyways, so finally went home. Was in the mood for nice cuddling in and out of the tuxedos, but we were toooooo tired.

Seems we don't get the opportunity to cuddle these days. Cause last night... Well, I had worked a lot on the Isle and it's progressing very much: New lake, new beach, new swamp... Then RL-work called, and as I came back after midnight, my love had electricity problems. Talked a while on the cell-phone till he finally got power back. Showed him the new builds on the isle and then we wanted to go dancing at... uhm.... what's the name of the club? Stardust? Starfall? Me and names! *eeeks* However, that club of Sherynn on Koen's land (I think)... ah, ya.. "Starfall" it is! So, I tp'd there and sent my love a limo.... and waited... no reaction.... then heard him snoring in our private voice-chat. That happened once before and since I'm teasing him, that he sounds like Darth Vader (that's why the title of this entry), but actually it's kinda cute. So, there was nothing with dancing; went back, had to wake him up and drag him to bed. Poor, sleepy dragon... (Love you much mucher!!!)

So, I hope we soon have some comfy time together. At the moment my mind is blown with too many things; have to get the island back and was asked to write articles about RP and fighting some hurt feelings and disappointments, but I guess I'm just a bit too sensitive from all the busy-ness.

Well, RL is calling soon. I wished it was sunday evening....

getting better

Getting a bit better these days. There's still a lot of work on the Isle as we implement some new ideas, but as I see the progress now, I'm full of new energy (I was about to give up a few days ago...). Especially as I finally found what I was looking for: Low prim (1-2) sculpted trees which look realistic. At Crazy Garden, where I bought 2 packs, and the owner was really nice and sent me flowers... in fact another pack with 10 nice plants in it. I just bought some more stuff and considering of getting up a vendor of that shop.
So we put the flowers around the wild gazebo yesterday and also a bought a rose-pergola for my romantic boy and he looks so cute and sexy framed by roses:

Apart from building there's not much news. Welcome to Kenny Soderberg as newest blog-follower! He was one of the sexy guys at GAY Village (I think that was the name of the Italian Club). *purrrrrr* It's funny, that already 30 people follow this blog, as I'm not fishing for readers and it's just a personal blog, not informative and interesting like others.

After working on my taxes (RL *eeech*) and then on the lake of the island and the gazebo, I grabbed my lil devil yesterday and went over to Tainted Boys for dancing. Getting a bit distracted and having fun. But missing my Kenshi who's on a mission for days now; I hope he's coming back soon. RL can be so annoying. But I had him on the phone for a while and even if the connection was bad and I didn't understand much, it was good to hear his voice again. Come back soon, my love, and please in one piece!

Well, that's it mostly. I'm tempted to write some more, but I try to follow Eddi Haskell's motto ""I will blog about others as I want them to blog about me", which is a good golden rule. Or with the wise words from others: "If you can't tell something good about someone, don't say anything at all."

And finish this entry with a song of one of my favorite and most admired singers, which sadly died this week: Mercedes Sosa with "Gracias a la vida":

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.
It gave me two beams of light, that when opened,
Can perfectly distinguish black from white
And in the sky above, her starry backdrop,
And from within the multitude
The one that I love.

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.
It gave me an ear that, in all of its width
Records— night and day—crickets and canaries,
Hammers and turbines and bricks and storms,
And the tender voice of my beloved.

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.
It gave me sound and the alphabet.
With them the words that I think and declare:
"Mother," "Friend," "Brother" and the light shining.
The route of the soul from which comes love.

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.
It gave me the ability to walk with my tired feet.
With them I have traversed cities and puddles
Valleys and deserts, mountains and plains.
And your house, your street and your patio.

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.
It gave me a heart, that causes my frame to shudder,
When I see the fruit of the human brain,
When I see good so far from bad,
When I see within the clarity of your eyes...

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.
It gave me laughter and it gave me longing.
With them I distinguish happiness and pain—
The two materials from which my songs are formed,
And your song, as well, which is the same song.
And everyone's song, which is my very song.

Thanks to life
Thanks to life
Thanks to life
Thanks to life

and another week over

Woah! What a week again. I'm so exhausted and tired. Trying to get the Isle back asap, but plenty new ideas and other things lets it take longer then expected. However, it will look even better and be more adventurous then before. Someone donated a huuuuuge amount to the Isle, though it isn't even open to RP atm. I don't know who it was as the donations go to Kenshi, but I will find out and then you'll get a biiiig hug and "thank you", generous anonymous spender!

I only took three breaks this week, each time dancing. On monday with my Kenshi at Tainted Boys. On thursday at Tiger's Isle, dancing with my bros Jojo, Nevie and Kyne... and  yesterday - sunday -, when JoJo invited me to a new Italian club (forgotten the name again. Something with "GAY....") to support Daffy's gig. We had lots of fun and the Italians were hawt! Last minute I got to hear, that the theme is "I scream" and I desperately searched for an outfit, that would impersonate Munch's painting... but at the end I was just wearing a tank from Jojo, superhero-briefs from boycut and a smile. I went there with my boy Brian, and my lil devil Mick came too, and Andrej joined us as well as Rammy... so we been a crowd at the end and had much fun. Too bad, I couldn't take good pictures; too laggy and not easy to get all bros in motion on ONE pic!

The tanks JoJo made in cooperation with JJ Later from CityBoyz were the hit. Everybody wanted them and I think at the end the whole club was wearing it. I just wonder, what an ice cream licking boy has to do with it!? (hell, yes! I always had to think of Roberto Benigni in Jarmusch's "Down by law"...) It was so good to dance with brothers again. Missed that so much! Just too bad, that Spanki and Nevie been too busy to join us. Maybe next time... And of course my Kenshi! Well, one day maybe they get two computers, then I can be with my boy AND my husband at the same time?

Oh, on saturday I missed the "Oktoberfest" on Tiger's Isle. Unbelievable that the last one is already a year ago! Time moves so fast. *sighs* But I worked RL 11 hours and the party was too late for me. Too bad!

Okay, back to building and terraforming!
