Star Struck

1 Star Struck_007 L

There isn’t much that is more exciting for a blogger than a sales event. That is, unless it’s seeing two of your favourite bloggers at the event!

I logged in yesterday to a note card from {What next} announcing Winter Thorn’s offering for the new gacha area of the Liaison Collaborative. The Liaison Collaborative is one of the events I anticipate since I know there will be some fantastic new home items from some of my favourite designers in The Garden. Combine that with the Poser’s Pavillion and it is heaven, indeed.

However, just as I rezzed in, I spied a familiar name – although not someone I have ever met in person. Alexa, aka Spunknbrains, was standing not ten metres away from me! Normally I’m rather shy when I see someone I admire near me, but this time I jumped straight into IM. Alexa and I have been carrying on conversations via blog comments for months, so it felt like striking up a conversation with an old friend.

1 Petting the Pony

As we were chatting, I’m pretty sure I stopped mid-sentence to squeal, “OMG, Chic Aeon!” While Alexa warned me not to become star struck, I have to admit that I was. And I wasn’t brave enough to speak to her. She has been one of my blogger heroes since long before this site was even an idea.

It wasn’t enough to stop me from shopping, however 😉 I snagged some sweet poses and gacha gifts and I was a very happy girl, indeed. I’m going to go back in a few days when it isn’t as busy to check out the furniture in more detail; for this visit, I hit the jackpot with two rares – sightings of a pair of my heroes.

The hobby horse in the second photo – the reason for my visit – is just too adorable for words. It works as an AO and the petting motion is one of the stands. Make sure you hit Page Down while wearing it – I won’t spoil the surprise, but it had me about to fall off my horsey in laughter!

    You have me chuckling as I read this, you’re too kind. 🙂 You definitely squeled too… and I’m glad that you weren’t too shy to say “Booo” in my IM box. 🙂

        *cough* I think we already covered Cao’s driving autos on one of my blogs. 😀

        Nine car accidents in 2 years (none my fault!!!)

        You sure you trust me? 😉

      • caoimhelionheart December 19, 2013 / 2:43 am

        hmmmm Maybe its time for Cao’s to fly. 😀

    I think we need to get you out and about more Peep 🙂 Mo one is ever to “important” to send out a friendly hello to. Especially when you read on so many blogs that people would love to talk more and are just waiting for the other person to be the first to send out that IM. My way of keeping the stars way from the eyes is always remembering that SL is the great level playing field, after all, we will all rezz bald and naked with just alpha at crowed events hahaha.

    • PeepSideshow Darkward December 19, 2013 / 9:11 am

      lol SL’s version of showing up to a final exam in your underwear 😉

      And I know you’re right…Maybe I should add your advice to my New Year’s Resolutions 🙂

    Its time Peep. Come back to me, I saved a spot on this bench next to me. Please just set a spell more? I think we have more to share. *huge heart*

Talk to me! (please? )
