Good friend Cutewillow Carlberg is getting married today and all the girls decided to go out on the town last night for an SL Hen night (a Hen night in the UK is when the bride-to-be and all her friends go out and get merry just before the wedding, similar to a stag night for the men!). We started out at Brie’s home where she had set up some stuff for Cute, it looked lovely, Brie also had a game for us to play ‘Truth or Dare’ Princess gave us a box of goodies which turned out to be lots of stuff in the shape of, well! willy’s (penis’ for the want of a better word!), hats drinks, jewellery! what more could we want for a Hen night! We all played Truth or Dare which was a really funny, then we looked for a ‘girl’s night out’ venue in SL.
We found a place called Seductive Nights, a place for women only with male strippers, and we teleported over. We were greeted by the hostess and a couple of male dancers who came down to dance amongst us.
Spotting Cute as the bride, one of the guys made a bee line for her and danced in front of her, which was fine until he decided to shed his clothes down to his underpants.
I notice Cute did a quick exit to the other side of the room and soon both guys didn’t have a stitch on. They came up to us and talked a bit naughty as all the girls giggled and tried to move out of the way. How amazing, just like a real life club, I never even realised they had these venues in SL, but then I suppose they have everything.
I hope Cute enjoyed her Hen night, it was an experience for us all and it was nice having a girls night out for a change. I’m looking forward to the wedding later on today, I’m sure Cute and her fiance Jolly will have a wonderful SL wedding!

I got a fantastic gift from Up4 and Rux who own Old Europe. It’s a beautiful winter house, complete with snow and all the fixtures and fittings inside, you can even sit in there and see the snow through the windows, although it may not be snowing outside, a very clever idea. I hadn’t anywhere to rez it as my new home restricts me to 50 prims, as it’s already furnished, and I find that’s enough to build my stuff. I went off to find a sandbox to have a look at the little house properly.
I rezzed the box then opened the house and had fun looking at all the lovely things inside.
Next thing I was caught in a load of boxes filling the sim, some nutter had decided to grief everyone, I suppose it can be quite funny griefing, but then again it can be a nuisance when you are trying to sort stuff out by using a sandbox. I sent an AR off as well as the griefer kept on without letting up, but never heard back from the Lindens. It’s the first time I haven’t had confirmation that they have received an AR, I wonder if they have new policies on not checking them all out.
Anyways the winter house is lovely and Up4 and Rux have it for sale in their Old Europe Winter Village which I will go over and explore very soon, it’s brilliant there, especially at Christmas.
I’ve had so much fun making Christmas stuff that I haven’t enough places to display it. I made a skating snowman and skating penguin and I’ve just finished a white Christmas tree decorated with flower fairies. I’m getting loads of ideas and playing about with scripts which is fun as well.
I opened shops in Jura, Tropical Bliss and the New London Village and I really like setting up the displays, I’ll have to think about after Christmas soon, maybe a Fairy shop and some Easter stuff would be nice. I think now I have found I like building small items so much I’ll always be wanting to build something!

One of those days again, I got a message from Hibiscus telling me that the person who owns the sim where she has her land and where I have one of my Christmas shops, which I rent from her, has not being paying the tier for the sim, so it has been reclaimed by the Lindens! That’s it, you pay rent as probably Hib and the other renters have done in advance and there is nothing to stop you losing it, no way to make the person who let everyone down settle their debts! It might be a good idea if the Lindens were to make it known to the people who live or have shops on the sims that the owner has stopped paying, so that at least the renters know to stop paying and look for somewhere else before they chuck more money away! Talking of money, I went to a sim in the Destination Guide the other day called Off the Wall, and spotted some people sitting around a table. I wandered over and realised they were camping for free money! It was a good deal too, it was one Linden dollar per minute! I decided to grab a seat and see if I could get everyone talking, as I remember when I used to camp, talking wasn’t really the thing I did much, I think I was quite shy as a newbie!
And so I met Jackray, Caydence, Hugo, Maerl and Aleera. It was sort of nice sitting chatting and I passed round the cups of green tea and cake, so everyone felt at home. I’m not sure what happened, but I jumped up out of my seat for some reason, so lost any money I would have earned, as Jackray told me you had to sit there for an hour to get paid. I didn’t mind, the sim owner is generous to give people so much money for camping and it brought back happy memories of when I used to search for good camp sites when I was a newbie! Changing the subject completely, I went to a beautiful SL wedding yesterday, Dottie Idlemind wed Gold Gazalet and it all went like a dream. I ended up taking over a hundred photographs while I was there, the setting was gorgeous and the Bride and groom looked stunning. We had a party afterwards at Janis Short’s HangOut Club so it was a day to remember. Many congratulations to Dottie and Gold!!
