Kuro Curiosities

1 Kuro Curiosities

I love Kuro, as you can probably tell from the numerous items from Luana Dawg that I post. Everything she does is of exceptional quality but my favourites are always the more whimsical curiosities she creates.

Take this…well, everything in this picture! The little puppet/wooden dolls creatures she has created are a group gift to celebrate her move to a new location. The Industrial Flower is/was part of The Neighbourhood this weekend (ack! I’m posting this late, but it’s available in the mainstore) and the chair is another part of Luana’s release for this month’s round of The Challenge.

Did I mention that the store has moved? Click the link in my post or on my SLurls To Favourite Places page, which I have updated with the new address.

Go and wander around, be wowed by what you see and I’ll bet you can’t make it out without smiling at least once 🙂

How NOT To Bathe A Cat

1 How NOT to bathe a cat

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I gave my cat a bath. There she was, poor dear, minding her own business on the balcony – and she got pooped on by a pigeon 😦 I hadn’t bathed her yet this summer so it was the impetus I needed to go ahead and do it.

What surprised me was how many people commented on how brave I was to give her a bath. To be honest, she doesn’t mind water – in fact, she has been known to push open the shower door and join me, sitting just at the edge of the spray and she loves to drink from and play with the water running from the tap. On top of that, I have been bathing her since she was a kitten and she is now a regal nine years old. She isn’t crazy about the shampoo, but I make sure I have a firm grip on her and get on to the rinsing in a hurry.

I made a list of the steps on how to bathe a cat in my comments, then I thought it would be fun to show how to do it in my blog. Sadly, I couldn’t find all of the bits and pieces I needed so that is how this ended up as a “How Not To” post, instead.

My Avatar’s Private Life Challenge: Inventory (Mis)Management

1 Bathing in shoes_030

This week, Miss Berry, compliments of Winter Jefferson, wants to know what we think our avatars get up to while we’re offline. I admit I’ve wondered about this myself, so it was really just a matter of shooting a photo to illustrate it.

This is actually a two-part meme. We can choose to do one or both of the challenges. Don’t you love multiple choice exams where you get to pick which questions you answer?

Here’s what we’ve been asked to do:

Meme Instructions: I’m giving you two options to choose from this week. I will be doing both of them but you guys can pick and choose, unless you’d like to do both as well.
1. Meme Suggested by Mr. Jefferson: “What does your avatar get up to after you log out?”
2. Blog about one of your closest friends in Second Life.
Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments (of this post) and if you decide to do any pictures with this challenge, please share them in the Blog Memes flickr group.

So, to explain my photograph about what I believe my avatar does when I log off: I have long bemoaned the disarray in my inventory. I am fully convinced that Peep, the avatar, waits only long enough for me to sign out to dive headfirst into my inventory and wreak havoc. Undoubtedly, she drags carefully filed items out of their folders back into the root directory, pulls the dozens of items I have put in the trash (but not cleared) and sneakily stuffs them back where they came from, writes notecards to clog up that folder, and yes, even strips off, pulls her hair up, fills the tub and bathes with my shoes!

So, believing I might catch her up to no good, I planned my own sneak attack, logged in as an alt and caught her in the act! Look at her – she doesn’t even have the decency to look guilty! Hell, she doesn’t even have the decency to look decent O.o

I’m only going to do part one of the challenge – as you can probably tell, I’ll be very busy cleaning up this mess and replacing all of the shoes she ruined 😦
