208 of 365: Photo Booth fun from my newb days

Sometimes digging through your inventory will find you some hidden gems and blasts from the past that I guarantee will bring a smile to your face.  I highly recommend it :))


207 of 365: "Hand to Mouth", a flash fiction audio recording

Just a random photo from my SL collection…

I’ve made an audio recording of a flash fiction piece a wrote some months ago.  It’s a very rough draft.  I did have a few people read it over for me and offer some excellent suggestions for some changes to make it better.  Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me, find that folder in my hard drive.  I fear I may have accidentally deleted it.  So you get the first draft version here 😉

ETA:  If you are reading in Google reader, you may have to go to my blog page to get the embedded Cinch recording.  It’s not showing up in my feed.

206 of 365: Mad Ninjaz

So last night in my continuing quest to look for new places for photos, Aubree sent me a teleport to a place called Mad Ninjaz.  

There was little information available about this sim, except for what was provided in the landmark:

“I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. ” W. B. Yeats

Please respect the people and the land. We request you stay out of our houses and private skyboxes. 

Good enough.  Simple and to the point.  Enjoy 🙂

205 of 365: More fun with Picnik

I don’t have a SLurl for this picture location because I didn’t have enough time tonight to take more photos.  Tomorrow I will be going back for more pictures and will post the SLurl then if it looks like a place you want to explore.  

I’m still playing around with Picnik and seeing what I can do with it.  

I like it so far.  Fast, easy fun.  Sound familiar?

204 of 365: Image Editing fun with Picnik

I’ve grown bored with my Photoshop routine, so I decided to try some online image editing programs just to change things up a bit and see what I can do.

Picnik is fairly easy and you can do a lot with your photos in a short amount of time.  It lacks the more advanced features available in Photoshop, but I find it useful for adding quick effects to beautify your photos.  

I see myself using this online program often for all my photos, not just SL ones, so I went ahead and purchased the premium membership.  There are still a lot of options available with the free basic membership as well.

202 of 365: Randomness

Otis was my first and for a long time, my only Meeroo.  I’ve lost track of how many I have now.  He’s going to be too old for breeding soon, and I will either release him or retire him and turn him into a Mee-pet.  I’m not sure yet what I will do.  

Isn’t it kind of ridiculous how attached one can get to a pixel pet?  lol

Sometimes, once in a blue moon, I get random i.m’s from someone who has read my blog, telling me how much they enjoy it.  This always surprises me because I don’t think I am all that interesting.  Today someone told me my blog was ‘compelling’.  Really?!  I’m not complaining, I’m just surprised that the random stuff I post here is actually interesting to others.  It’s cool, and thank you!  I like the encouragement.  

The heat wave seems to have broken.  It was still quite hot today, but compared to the temperatures earlier this week, today was bearable.  We spent the afternoon at the beach and then had a nice dinner at one of our favourite restaurants.  

This is me, tired, sweaty, and sticky but happy:

Cheers and hope you are all having a great weekend :))
