Tons of Fun

Where's my pink tutu and alligators?
This came free from Seawolf Monsters - in a glass paperweight.  Beware the fires when you go there!  Here there be dragons.  This avatar is completely brilliant.  Its mouth moves when you type, and when it walks, there's a bounce to it that looks like real heft.  It's not perfect as a dancer because the body within stretches the prims out too far, but I couldn't resist the ballet moves from Kero's chim.  There's a HUD, and the framework body is printed with a funny message.  And, yes, you can color the toenails if that's what you want to do.  I colored the pinky on the left front paw bright red and tried to change it back.  If you look, you can see it's just a hair lighter than the others.  As usual, I was just too lazy to write down the numbers ... because, like, they're numbers - and I don't do numbers.

Good Clean Fun

"Whatsamattayou?  You never see someone take a bath before?"
We love great AFKs.  Wear this bathtub, and remain idle for 5 minutes and it kicks in.  Of course, it will also kick in if you ever type "afk" or "brb" so be prepared!  This is a 60L Weekend item at DramaZone, where there are many fine and quirky items for purchase.

Such as ...

Bubble costume and tub from DramaZone.
The bubble costume comes with a bar of soap, a couples pose (men's costume sold separately), and a bathtub with multiple cute animations.  It's also 60L.

"I said, Whattareyoulookin' at?"  

Just Like Magic!

Skipping rope with animation and it can be adjusted - I just didn't have time.
Note that I didn't get my regular eyes back in either.

More than one skip!  Here's the one foot.

Then the criss-cross.
There is nothing like a hunt!  Not only the the shark (cleverly hidden) at Magic Nook provide this terrific skipping rope, but there are a couple of free poses available!  The animation comes with a menu, so you can switch it off and the rope disappears until you turn it back on again.

I love discovering new shops.  This is why I don't do full hunts anymore - I see something on the blogs that I want, go to the shop, and then spend ages looking at everything.  Occasionally I even buy something.

World's Largest Mustache.

Le Stuffe Boof-ant!

BCF - hmmmm, who could it be?

I was chatting with my BCF (Best Canadian Friend) recently, talking about how tired I was with fashion and he was sharing landmarks to really really cute stuff, when he mentioned doing a blog about cute and fun stuff.  Well, there had been one of those.  I remember subbing to it ages ago when I still had a Bloglines account.  I recalled that Bloglines had not died the death that was threatened and went back to my old account, migrated it to whatever the new thing is, but still couldn't find that blog.  I guess it isn't being written anymore.
The least I can do is share what I think is fun.  It won't all be free stuff, but it will be relatively cheap and cute and fun.  And the latest fun place I found through, of course, the hunts, was Boof!
Here there be fun accessories: theme belts and things that hang out of your mouth, attachments with cute animations running around 30L and often less
PBRs & Seein' Stars
There's the ever popular drunk animation that comes with a knockin' it back, a sippin', and a six-pack o' Pabst.  Well, goddam!  When was the last time I had a PBR?  Prolly at some cheap-ass picnic. [ I consumed a refined and solemn Fat Weasel Ale tonight at dinner.]
Also pictured is the Seeing Stars attachment, that comes with a Seeing Stars HUD, so you can fall down without the PBR, for those of you who are really sensitive about references to over-consumption of alcohol.

Oy! Who turned out the lights? Nevermind.
Haven't you always wanted to be Uncle Fester?  I have.  You too can be, for only one Llinden.

Boof Freebie
 And there are freebies.  This one was particularly hilarious.  Can't wait for the next costume affaire chez Grizzy.

"Stop trying to bury us!"
Boof: for all your silly zombie accessories, such as signage that is nailed on.  There are also protest signs and, my favorite, the sandwich board that reads "Zombies are were people too!"

Ceci c'est en fait une pipe.
For some reason, the Tobacco Pipe Smokers Lounge Group on Flickr asked to have this added.  On the one hand, they must be getting desperate for pix of pipes, but on the other hand - aw, come on - look at it!  It's wonderful!

Okay, so where am I going with this?  The whole point of a Virtual Life is to have fun, innit?  Well, Boof! is another place to increase your chances of Virtual Fun.  See you there.

Happy Hunting Day!

 New shop (new to me anyway)!  If you love the Fabulous 50s (and not only do I [sort of] remember them, but I am in them), what a great place to find Fabulous Furniture, Fashion, and paraPHernalia!  The shop is huge and just full of stuff.  I almost forgot to look for the hunt prize!

Funky Furniture!

Ruh-roh!  That tub is leaking!
Also worth visiting is THISnTHAT.  There are a few hunt prizes there - one for a minimum cost of 45L, but you get a whole deck with 2 chairs, a table, lights, and a ring to float in.  I think the ladder is a hilarious touch.

Lludmila relaxes in the evening at her new deck from THISnTHAT.

Shredders' Delight!

You may or may not know that Cal is an avatar I created for my husband, who is a guitarist/inventor.  So, I'm always on the look-out for guitars for him and, boy, did we hit paydirt today!
I think we spent all of 10L at Witch Babe and this is what we came away with:

Cal models the double-neck guitar from the lucky board.

Note, Cal is also wearing his  new roller skates from  justB.

Guitar #3.

Lludmila rocks out with her freebie.

10L Base guitar from the Outlet.

All the guitars came with HUDs and there is also a free HUD available.  
Okay, we did have to join the two groups, but that was free as well.  I suppose Cal will look in vain for a free Martin Dreadnought.  I still haven't convinced him to play inworld. Oh well.

Men's clothes: Brain Circuit, Inc (A freebie and they look good on gal's too!)
Roller Skates: group gift in the notices at justB
