Good News

Many of my students aregetting responses from universities right now, and some of the news is very, very good. That inspired me for today’s post.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Chartreuse

I have some people to thank today. First of all to Banjo Baily for coming up with a bottle of Chartreuse liqueur in about 12 hours flat. Anytime you need beautiful alcoholic beverage bottles, Banjo is your guy!

Second, to Bruce. Bruce didn’t expect to have to model this week, much less have to model twice. My second model fell through and Bruce had to be putting up with me yelling at him about his hair on two separate avis. Bruce is probably waiting for the day that I talk to him about something other than modeling for me, and sadly today was not the day. You are a true friend, Bruce. So without further ado you have Bruce 1 as Jay Gatsby on the left and Bruce 2 as Nick Carraway on the right. Alas, Daisy would not fit in the picture. Now this novel reference may bring up torturous tenth-grade English class memories for some of you, but set it aside for a moment and just appreciate the Chartreuse! Now I’ve never tried it, but apparently it is a very lovely and complicated liqueur to make. You can get a general idea about it here.

“Finally we came to Gatsby’s own apartment, a bedroom and a bath, and an Adam study, where we sat down and drank a glass of some Chartreuse he took from a cupboard in the wall.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Vintage Elegance

Bruce has been pestering me to do a vintage post lately and even went out and found stuff he thought I should blog. Talk about really getting into things! Anyway, once he got me in the store I went crazy myself, mostly because of this gorgeous camisole and bloomers from Cilia Shepherd. It’s embarrassing, but I actually did scream a little bit when I saw them for the first time.

Also to die for is this beautifully rendered 30’s hairstyle from MrSigmund Fride, with its perfectly marcelled waves!

And finally Bruce got to make his manly appearance in this great outfit from Tatiana Starsider. Sexy, huh, girls? Since there was way more stuff that we wanted  to blog that we couldn’t fit in this post, we will have to do the rest another time, I guess,. I better watch out or I may experience a hostile model takeover on this blog!!!!

Forest Floor

At school we teachers swear that the short weeks are the longest. This one was no exception! Now it’s time for a long weekend over the Easter holidays, and I chose to wander around the Forest Floor sim, which calmed me considerably. Here no students come to me to tell me why they cannot take their test, or why their homework for the last three days is not done. Here I wander around listening to nobody but the swans, and when it comes to swan conversation, less is more, and that’s a good thing!

If you are celebrating this weekend, may you enjoy the time with family and friends!
