I have to thank Mr. Awesome for his dedication to figuring out the graphics issue. After ruling out a number of causes, he suggested using a different viewer. So I downloaded Black Dragon after reading that it's one of the best viewers for SL photography. It really is fantastic. AND! It proper* did away with the inconvenient and the ugly!


* Do I get points for my probably horrific use of "proper" here? - ,# anyway!

Computer Graphics

So... I'm attempting to snap some pictures, and mi computer gives me THIS:

That's why I've been "off the map" for a bit. But I know a guy who can do just about anything relating to computers. He walked ME - YES, ME - through cleaning my heat sink. Before he Skype'd me through that, I had no idea what a heat sink even LOOKED like.

This is a completely different issue (yeah?), but he works on computers for a living. He's a master. So I'm hopeful.

Basically, BRB.

Toil and Trouble

All decor, save for the big cauldron and the "more defined" - we'll say - potion bottles, come from Boudoir's Witch Cabin. It's mostly made of full-perm items. I did say MOSTLY; some were created by the team that makes up Boudoir.

SKIN[theSkinnery] / Poppie / Brownie [Beautiful Liar] 
-- June 2013 Arcade item now at mainstore; 100L per play.
BODY and HANDSMaitreya / Lara
HAIR: .: fiore :. / Isabel / Browns
EYES: {D.A} / Moon Eyes / [old group gift]
HEAD TATTOO: .ARISE. / Lova Facetattoo
-- includes soft, middle and hard intensities; no appliers

GOWN: Wimey / Desires Gown / Black
-- HUD includes three color-changes for sheer skirt

WITCH HAT: {Reverie} / [Witchcraft Wanabe gacha] - @Wayward Halloween! [You still have a few hours!]
-- AD:

EARRINGS and NECKLACE SET: Ariskea / Berwood - @Sad November! [opening tomorrow!]
BOTTLE NECKLACE: (Yummy) / Tube/Crystal - @Epiphany!


Here's Aphorism's Skelly (@Wayward Halloween) sitting outside, thinking of that old adage, "Hindsight is 20/20," as he also contemplates the many more years he'll sit there and regret the day he ever crossed paths with me, Isobel Gowdie!

And then here's the outside, including the Witch's Cabin and some Half-Deer trees from Collabor88 (unlike Halloween, that will not be ending until November 7th. Or 6th. ONE OF THOSE).


I had so many ideas for Halloween! I had my Amy Pond outfit. I had Remarkable Oblivion's RARE {awesome, I might add) fireplace from their TAG gacha. I had the RARE Birdy broom AND the vacuum from the last round of Arcade.
But between deviling eggs, cleaning and babysitting a blind miniature pinscher, this was all I could do! It was even supposed to be another witch, but her computer crashed MID-shoot.

It really is a night of horror, isn't it?

However, I can see. This poor dog, named Jackson, walks into walls, walks into tables, walks into people... He's so unsure of himself. It truly breaks my heart to see him lie down, not because he's tired, but because he can't fix what's so different - and suddenly so - about himself. BUT! He's getting his cataracts removed on Tuesday. Until then, he has to be closely guarded!

I hope this was enough of a post anyway. Although it's nearly over for lots, Happy Halloween!


EDIT: The Wibbly-Wobbly-Timey-Wimey necklace, by Cae, is at the Geeks'n'Nerds event!

Consignment/Floorplan and Sari-Sari @ Seasons Story!

Consignment and floorplan., one of my FAVORITE collaboration teams, have come together once again to offer this spectacular windmill hangout. You can find it at the Seasons Story in four metal colors, and in both PG and adult versions. By touch, you can change the pillows to nine textures and the blanket to 12 colors. OH! There's also 2983759870201034 animations. (Okay, there's only 39 single and 31 couple animations... ONLY 70?)

The handmade stove and basket are from Sari-Sari, who are also offering all the pretty things at the Seasons Story. I've noticed that many of the Sari-Sari items, at least ones at the Arcade, are not resizable. But these items, you can resize. ALL OF THEM! That's important (to me, at least) because when taking pictures for the ol' bloggo, I want you to be able to see AbbyAnne's and stupidmonkey's meticulous and wonderful work!  Below, the wheelbarrow full o' pumpkins and, in the collage, everything on the right and the bottom left are from Sari-Sari:

The killer house is from dust bunny. It's called the Wildrose Manor. Isn't it PERFECT for Halloween decorations?

EDIT: I almost forgot. My hair is from Moon (it comes with a color-change HUD for the hat), and the super snuggly jumper is from ASO!

Here's what I was listening to:

Tomorrow I'll be quicker
I'll stare into the strobe light flicker
And afloat I'll stay
But I'm quite alright hiding today

Tomorrow I'll be faster
I'll catch what I've been chasing after
And have time to play
But I'm quite alright hiding today

And I will play the coconut shy
And win a prize even if it's rigged
I won't know when to stop
And you can leave off my lid, and I won't even lose my fizz
I'll be the polka dots type
I'll know the way back, if you know the way
But if you are, I am quite alright, hiding today

Tomorrow I'll be stronger, running colorful
No longer just in black and white
And I'm quite alright hiding tonight

And I will have a game on the coconut shy
And win a prize even if it's rigged
I won't know when to stop
And you can leave off my lid, and I won't even lose my fizz
I'll be the polka dots type

I'll probably swim through a few lagoons
I'll have a spring in my step
And I'll get there soon
To sing you a happy tune, tomorrow

And you better bring a change of clothes
So we can sail our laughing pianos along a beam of light
But I'm quite alright
Hiding tonight
