Happy Holiday at the CnP!



Sometimes you not only get what you need, but you get what you want. Prad, Bailey and Rrish brought my holiday wish to reality. It was wonderful. Truly wonderful. I think it had all the elements of a Crown and Pearl party, even though we were missing a few key people (Bailey Dazy – I missed you, but I hope you had wonderful time at the RL event). What makes a CnP party?

The people: I started a list back when I expressed my wish. I knew I’d forgotten some folk on that list, but it was fantastic to see them again. Dancing with some of my very favorite people!

The DJs: Always wonderful. Prad started it off, of course. *grin* Singing along to the songs. Despite the abuse. Aribeth, Rrishanna, and Bailey were all due to take the helm.
The chat: Yep, it degenerated, spun off track, was inconsequential, loving, abusive, fond, teasing, incomprehensible.
The CnP: Dressed up in its winter finery.

Outfits: Encouraged to dress to impress, everyone did. That was vague enough to allow all sorts of self-expression! And new looks – some avatars had make-overs!! woot!

The animals: You know you are at the CnP when there is some infestation of animals. Sometimes it’s squirrels, sometimes the floor vanishes and it’s fish, sometimes it’s sheep and reindeer.

.


The explosions: I confess that I had to leave before the grand finale, when all the explosions went off and the CnP was blasted back to prims, but I did see the setup begin.

.

Odd objects: There are always a few strange things rezzed and left about: walkers with headlights, flying purple bombs. Hey, look. It’s the CnP – you need to take that kind of stuff in stride.
.


Sim Full: Oh yes, almost from the get-go we hit the sim limit. 🙂 I forgot to take a picture of the map, to show all the green dots INSIDE and all the green dots lined up at the border. NEXT time we use a bigger sim. *grin*

.

Unexpected expulsions: One moment you are there, the next – poof! You were ejected. No, no one really know why, just grab a taxi and get back inside.

It was a wonderful, wonderful time. It sounded to me as if most everyone was having as much fun as I was. Of course I took a zillion pictures. I can only put half a zillion up here, but the rest are up on my Flickr account – I did try to get most everyone who was there while I ws. And yes – I DID get my holiday dance with Dale. 🙂

HUMONGO HUGS to Prad, Bailey and Rrish who made the effort to reconstruct the Crown and Pearl and dress it in its holiday best. You guys are fantastic! Have I mentioned that I think we should do a first day of Spring party???? *grin*


My Holiday Wish List

The holiday referenced is New Year’s Eve. My wish – to recapture a little of SL glory past. I have been thinking on how to word what I want to recapture. I realized that the “peak” SL moment typically differs from person to person. There are the oldies who say it happened in 2003 – the first moments. Then there are those who claim it was 2006. For me, obviously, it happened between July 2008 and now. *grin* And it IS all about me, let us not forget. Even my own “peak” moment does not encapsulate everything. It’s missing a lot of people who I knew then but weren’t part of the selected locale. It’s missing all of the building and learning I did for work. Most of the people that I want to be there would tell me that I’m wrong – that was NOT the peak time for that place. That is all true. But I want what I want.

I want a New Year’s Eve party at the Crown and Pearl this year. Yes, I know there is no more CnP. I know that everyone has moved on to other places, other pursuits. I know that many of the people who I think of when I think of the CnP are not even in SL anymore. Many of the people I want there were not on my Friends List nor am I on theirs. But they were there.

I want Prad and Bailey to reopen the Crown and Pearl for a holiday party. Dress-up. I want to see the people I think of as “my” regulars. I want all my other friends to come also, so they can experience a CnP moment too. I want to hear the DJs. I want a sploder. I want silliness and good humor. I want sheep. *grin* I want to see: Bails, Prad, Alann, Aribeth, Bailey (yes, there ARE two),Dark, Hell, Jellen, Mowgli, Nat, Rrish, Stoo, Landsend, Marisa, Clare, Ryker, BabyGlock, Kumi, Lucien and all the other people who used to be there but now I can’t remember their names because my brain is a sieve for things like names. But I want them all. (I’d really like all my NCI friends and my work friends and friend friends showing up as well.) And I want my New Year’s Eve day dance with Dale.

New Creations

I’m a tad frustrated. Work is going great. We had a concept. We made a demo of that concept so that we could show it to other people so that they could say “Hey! There’s an idea here!” We have found people who do indeed think we have an idea and maybe even more than an idea. We may actually have something that could become something REAL. *grin* You need to know something about me – well, if I were a REAL person, and not a construct of an imagination (please see the disclaimer in my profile. LOL). I have been in a group that brings products to market. I LIKE selling real products to real people for real money. *grin* So it’s incredibly exciting to me to think that yes, we may indeed have something here. BUT. I can’t tell you about any of that. Probably I shouldn’t even admit that we have an idea. 🙂 That is why I am wearing aluminum foil on my head – so that you can’t beam your mind-ray machine at me and see what it is. 🙂 So I can’t tell you about what *I* am doing. What I am creating. Go back and look at pictures of my office. That’s all I can share.

What I CAN do, however, is share what my friends are doing and creating. I’ve told you all about Honour’s Drama Dolls. Have you gotten YOURS yet? I’m sure that sometime in SL you encountered DRAMA!

Bailey Longcloth
is also creating. She has a business, Longcloth Ltd. for furniture, animations and homes. If I say Tony, Jeannie and Howard – do you know who I mean???? Either you are showing your age or your predilection for old TV. *Grin* Whereas Jeannie’s home was made from a Jim Beam liquor decanter which was simply painted with gold leaf, YOU can do better than that! Bailey has made a genie bottle that is much more elaborate and detailed. It is beautiful and fun. She sent me a photo while she was building it. I immediately started smiling from the sheer fun of it all. She is selling it through Xstreet. I have already curled up in MY bottle. It’s cozy and snug and I feel like a little-girl’s fantasy come true. 🙂 Okay – I’m wearing my silks from Beautiful Sin, so maybe I look a little like a big boy’s fantasy. But it’s MY bottle and I’m not inviting anyone to join me. Even though it has a couple pose. I’m not telling who is in the picture, either. If you REALLY want to know, contact me discreetly. LOL.

Sigh. Maybe soon I can tell you what *I* am doing…..
