What’s this error?

6 Jul

This is a new one for me to see

[11:39]  An internal error prevented us from properly updating your viewer.  The L$ balance or parcel holdings displayed in your viewer may not reflect your actual balance on the servers.

Hrm.  Dunno if that’s good or bad.

Gesture sounds

6 Jul

My husband got me a new microphone during vacation.  It’s great.  I loaded up Audacity today and made some new sounds to upload.  It is difficult to record sounds when all I really manage to get is me giggling.  I did get a couple without laughs in them though.

SL Fashion Fest LM?

6 Jul

Maybe I’m just unable to think because it’s so incredibly hot here today, but am I misisng the obvious at the  <a href=”http://slfashionfest.wordpress.com/“>SL Fashion Fest Blog (click)</a>  I looked over that blog and could not find the LM’s to take me to the events.  It talks about all the stuff going on but for the life of me, I could not find a LM.

Finally I loaded the map in world and tried typing in the various sims listed on the Event page they have but found nothing.  Then I tried typing in Fashion Fest and there you go, the sims are there to TP to that way.

So is it just me, did I miss the super obvious “click here for the LM’s” type section… or is it just not listed on the blog in a clear way?

The blog says it’s for Relay for Life, so that is great!  Is this the same as the fashion faire from last year?  I forgot what it was called.   I’m de-lagging myself so I can go scope it out.  I figure it’s probably mostly for human adult avatars, but maybe I’ll see something cute that I can carry around on my head as a kitty!

Good morning!

I’m back from RL trip!

5 Jul

Home!  I have some RL stuff, usually this blog is mostly SL stuff, but this is important and I need to say it, so please read <3

Vacation was lovely and the trip there/home is always interesting.  Usually I have many photos I bring home for possible gallery switch out, but there just wasn’t much.  I did get a few though, they looked nice on the camera previewer but I will see how they are and maybe have some new stuff later this month.  I am very excited about that.

Unfortunately, or well, maybe fortunately is actually the right word.. my dear friend who has been like a mom to me for basically all of my adult life, she lost her battle to cancer.  I say fortunately, not because I disliked her.. nono.. she was my family, not my genetic mom.. but yes still my mom in a way.  I do not have a real mom, and she was just the most special of special ladies.. ever.  (But my mother in law ranks right up there too)

I cannot be selfish and wish that she’d not pass away, for she suffered so much in the last few months.   I wish she had never gotten sick.  I miss the old days, a lot.  The cancer was quick.. but slow.. she doesn’t have pain now.  I don’t know how to feel.  I thought I’d cry a lot more, but I have cried for months and months now during her sometimes slow decline, sometimes very rapid decline..  There were times she’d improve, we’d celebrate even small improvements such as eating more for several days.. sounds silly maybe, but if we waited for something “big” to celebrate… truly we’d of never had that chance then.  There was no big improvement, only quick decline in the last two weeks.  My heart is broken, I feel so lost, so confused.  Who will give me advice, who will tell me that I am being silly (when I really am being ridiculous about something I’m afraid to try), who will tell me that the recipe I sent was so disgusting she almost horked.  Heehee.  Not always, but sometimes I’d gross her out now and then with a new recipe.

She is who I went to for advice for so many years now, she is who I wrote daily, called often, sent/recieved packages between us.  Celebrated life victories, cried together during sad times.  She did not log into SL because she just didn’t “get it” not onlyt hat I think her PC was too crap.   But she truly enjoyed all the stories I’d tell her and snapshots I showed her of me, the Tinies, the various “kid” friends I have.  She enjoyed the fact I went to Paris, virtually.  I saw King Tut’s museum, I walked in a stomach and told her how disgusting it was and of course I sent the yucky photo proof.  I certainly wasn’t going to gag alone.

I go between crying and rejoicing.  Rejoicing because I was blessed to have her in my life, she made such a gigantic impact in who I am today..  I learned much from her.  I still cry, I miss her, I have missed her for months.  I will always miss her.  Habit brought me to start thinking what I’d write her when I got home, only to burst into tears when I realized.. it will do no good to write.

I am sad.. but I am not devistated.   I am happy that she is no longer suffering though.

This will take time, won’t it?  I never lost anyone so important.  Distant family has died, but no one I really knew.  I never had someone so special, so ingrained into my daily life for so many years just… poof.  Gone.  I don’t know what to do.  I think I am numb.

I will miss you

RL Vacation and SL hunts I’m in!

30 Jun

SLURL: Lorimae’s Catbox – Two hunts in July!

This post is being glued to the top until I get back home. Scroll down though, on June 30th I’ll still be blogging! Between July 1st to 5th I am without access to SL. Two days on the road, long hours driving there and back. Three days visiting with family and maybe scoping out some craft stores yippie! More embroidery thread is always happiness to me. <3

TREASURE HUNTERS/FISHERS:

TextureMania hunt runs July 1 to 31!
Official blog w/ hints: TextureMania

My hint:

Smiley face you seek?
Dollhouse has four floors to peek!
New ceiling, no leak.

If it breaks due to server upgrades, relax.. I’ll fix it when I get home yay!

Gone Fishin’ Hunt runs July 1 to 31

This hunt is so much fun, I just love both being a vendor in the hunt and also being a hunter. You will need a 7seas rod. You do NOT need bait. You can pick up a rod from the 7seas vendor by one of the trees on my property. It’s in the corner near the lake.

My land’s small. you’ll find it!

Equip the rod, and start fishing. Read the manual, I think it’s /1cast maybe? It’s a global catch all through the hunt which means no bait necessary. If you want to gain rod experience points, use bait too. You’ll still catch it (bait or no bait, yay for prizes)

Then once you catch the GFH prize, what I like to do is attach it to my ear and pull the LM out of the box to the next lake. I have auto return set to send your stuff back, but hey.. be kind.. pick up yer crap wherever you go okay?

My IM’s will likely cap, so whatever you wanted to say.. you might want to repeat again after I’m back okay? Sometimes when there’s a lot of notecards/IM’s they don’t even all make it to e-mail notify bleh.
