SL:On Location – Pinoy Hideout Island

My ramblings in SL have taken me here to Pinoy Hideout Island.  The sim was designed/decorated by the talented Neva Crystall (of the Neva River Sims) and they are currently running a photography contest.

Also – word of warning, because I am including so many days in this, there are quite a few pictures. Alright – let’s get started.

Nerd? I prefer the term “Intellectual Badass”

It’s that time again… (or will be in about an hourish) … time for Geeks’n’Nerds 2014! I got an early invite, along with the rest of the SL Blogger group, to check out the offerings on blogger day. Ironically, I’ve had these pictures done for hours but got distracted – first by a book and then by re-watching episodes of Firefly – in true nerd fashion.

Be Careful Who You Trust – Even the Devil was an Angel Once

The Fantasy Collective starts a new round again today, in just about an hour actually, at noon SLT. The theme this time in “Celestial”. Hence the angel picture. Though I am angelic anyways. [Much more so than my friend Blue anyways.]  ;-p

SL:On Location – Autumn on Pigeon Island

“Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.”
