The Contractor...

     Have I ever told you that I love to laugh and have fun??   Sometimes though I think I'm the only one that laughs.  Anyway,  my very good friends, The Skytowers,  are remodeling their sim.  They removed all that was on the land and started with a clean slate.   I went to visit and saw they had started rebuilding.  It was late at night and they were heading to bed.  Being the good friend I am, I told them that I would "handle" things while they were gone.  I would be the Contractor.   Doesn't that sound like I should be in one of those Mafia films?    

      Here I am in my Contractor garb.  The tool belt was a freebie that I absolutely love.  The shorts & boots are or will be available at Skytower Designs when the sim is back together.  Oh...and the helmut and shirt are Scarlot originals...if you want a copy (which I highly doubt)...let me know..hehehe.

     So, before Strum logged out for the night.  I asked what he would like me to work on...he said, "A 14 floor hotel called, The Scarlot Towers"   Ya can't blame a girl for taking him literally!  I made it exactly 14 floors even though Rockr told me that buildings don't have the floor 13 because of the bad luck associated with that number.  Well, there isn't any bad luck in InWorldz unless, of coarse you are ME playing Grabby. (sighs)

    I am pictured here with my main construction worker...Mr. Rockr.   I made him take off his shirt.  What?  Don't judge me!  Isn't that how  construction workers are dressed?  Well, if you can look past his hunky chest, notice the sign?   Yes, I changed it to The Scarlot Skytower.  I'm always telling my friends that I want to be a Skytower, so this was my chance.  Now that I've experienced it for one night...I'm glad to be a Verrazzano.  Being a Skytower was wayyy too much work!!

    When they are finished with their sim,  I will post about it and give you all the links!    Thank you to Strummer and Kally for letting me play with them all the time.   :)

Crooked Creek Yacht Club

     Today was the Grand Opening party for Justin Meyer's Crooked Creek Yacht Club.  DJ Kally Skytower started the party with a set of country tunes that got the crowd moving. 

     Best of white was on the contest board, so everyone was dressed appropriately.  Bobbi Foxtrot & I split the pot.  Woot!  Way to go!!

       Ending the party,  DJ Strummer Skytower stepped onto the stage in a swimsuit, where he tossed out some rock tunes.  They both took requests making the party more personal for everyone.  Best of swimsuit was on the contest board, so everyone removed most of their clothing and showed some skin.  o.O  Kally Skytower & Kerry Wild were the winners!  Way to go, Girls!!

     Crooked Creek is located on the Iz Straits so Justin has put a rezzing area just so that you are able to rez your small boats and go sailing for the day.  Rez your boats here. Feel free to explore the area.  You will find some nice couples areas, so bring your friends or loved ones and have an awesome time.

Beauty is...

Beauty is a Million Colors

Beauty is more than appearance
Beauty is love
The graceful wings of a dove
The endless imagination in a dream
Beauty is not always something that can be seen

Beauty is laughter
And the remembrance after
Beauty is hope
When you have no reason to
Beauty is he and she and me and you

Beauty is forgiving
No matter how hard
Beauty is kindness
Making the best of a mess

Beauty is tears
And overcoming your fears
Beauty is individuality
The courage to be yourself
Beauty is a book, sitting on a shelf

To define beauty,
An impossible task
Because truly,
Does anyone really know, I ask
Beauty is different to me
Than to you
I wonder if anyone ever knew

   The Land of Lar is a beautiful sim.  Lar Jun has created a masterpiece! Go visit!!

Shiver me timbers!

   The Groggery,  a new pirate themed venue, had it's Grand Opening tonight.  Owned by Tadhg and Ladyheart Muirin, this venue certainly had the pirate ambiance.  Throughout the venue there are skeletons lounging around drinking the rum, and there is even one dancing on poles!

   DJ Strummer Skytower took over the stream and played some awesome rock music along with a few pirate songs.  I loved hearing all the "pirate" talk in chat.  Was a great time!

  A good crowd turned up,  some wore pirate garb, others not so much.  All in all... it was a very good party!

    Make sure you explore the sim, it called Port Tollsmear - Pirate Playground.  So many neat things to see.  Kudos to you, Tad & Lady...what a fine place to visit and explore.  Thank you to Quadrapop Tree for the photos shown.  You can see more of her photos here.

The Local Watering Hole of Port Hispania Gallaecia

        Ahhhh... very refreshing!   I stumbled around today and found the cutest little port called Port Hispania Gallaecia.   Amongst the beautiful palm trees,  grasses, and pretty flowers, you will find various buildings.  Harbor Master,  Printing Shoppe & Bindery,  The Fish Stall,   The Pharmacy, and as seen here The Scarlet Queen's Tavern are a few of them.  You will also find a cluster of cottages, suitable for home living.  The dock area is secured with canons so don't plan on coming with a group of pirates.  There are many places that could be suitable for photos.   So, when you have time...scoot your butt there and check it out.  Oh, and when you are done looking around,  stop by the Tavern and have a cool off!

Have I got a story for you....

      Today, my friend Kally and I went to a story-telling event at The Wandering Wolf.  Henning Lionheart is the narrator for Chapter 3 of The Hobbit.  I have never been to a story telling event in InWorldz before, and Henning did a marvelous job.  The story-telling took place in a ship's library.   There were chairs & cushions to sit upon, and was very cozy.   The next reading, on Sunday,  will be Sherlock Holmes.  If you get a chance,  you should drop by for a story!

I scream, You scream...


     ... We all scream for ice cream!!!  Some of you may know that one of my favorite things in any world is Ice Cream!! We've found the cutest ice cream shop out there.  You get a choice of flavors.  Anywhere from Vanilla Fudge Swirl to Triple Mint Overkill.  While Rockr prefers the Death by Chocolate, I loved the Fuzzy Navel.   There are 16 flavors to try.   Let us know which is YOUR favorite.

You can find this fabulous ice cream shop on the Victoriana Innocent
