Believe

Our holiday show this year includes a reading of The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsberg. Since the chorus is mostly background to the reading, it can be a bit of a snooze-fest, but there is a lovely schmaltzy part at the end that goes like this:

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that’s playing
There’s no time to waste
There’s so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly

You have everything you need
If you just believe

-Glen Ballard, Alan Silvestri

Glide

I am convinced there is a genetic disposition towards clumsiness. I don’t know what it is that makes someone walking along normally fall flat on their face for no reason, but my mother has done it for as long as I can remember—one of those times she fell face-first onto a tree trunk one week before my sister’s wedding. I have managed to stay upright most of my life, but I do have an annoying propensity for running into things, the most embarrassing of which was a student backpack left in the walkway which sent me flying headlong across the classroom one time. So my self-preservational instinct has kept me from gravitating towards activities which require lots of balance. In RL, I would be lying on the ice with a broken leg in this photo.

Another great Peace on Earth hunt item from Hanaya is this cute skate shack that distributes skates for icy winter fun!

Carol

Most of the time I have to cover my eyes for a good part of the Walking Dead because my gore-tolerance is at the extra wimpy level. Today though I am fangirling my favorite character at the moment, the strong and beautiful Carol Peletier.

One conclusion I have come to is that there’s not a whole lot of torn up or old looking clothing to be had in SL. Totally normal, of course, who does like to wear ripped clothing, after all?

Zombies, that’s who, and post-apocalyptic humans with no access to mass-produced clothing.

Splitting Hairs

It’s that time again, probably my favorite event of the whole year:

Hair Fair

Four sims created especially for hair addicts such as myself. Some favorites for me:

KIK (Hair Fair CLOUD)

I love how flexiprims are still being used for good!

CLAWTOOTH (Hair Fair Harbour) My next two for today are from Clawtooth—definitely one of my top five favorites this year at Hair Fair. Bubbles wins the market on cascading side-curls this year!

Song To A Seagull

Out of the city
And down to the seaside
To sun on my shoulders
And wind in my hair
But sandcastles crumble
And hunger is human
And humans are hungry
For worlds they can’t share
My dreams with the seagulls fly
Out of reach out of cry

-Song to a Seagull, Joni Mitchell

Fameshed is open for July and I love what is available this round…there’s quite a lot for the casual girl that I am. The new court shorts from Etente and the dual layer tank set from Cracked Mirror are the perfect beachwear for a hot July!

Maxi Gossamer must be one of the most prolific jewelry makers on the grid, she steadily cranks out gorgeous items. This moth at Fameshed you can find her Aprhodite’s dream set, which I can show here because Wasabi Pills also released a pulled-back hairstyle. There are not nearly enough of these on the grid in my opinion!

Finally, Stewart joined me in his sexy Heft Cargo Shorts from Fade Arcade Designs in collaboration with Razor. This color is available at the store, but there will be several different colors and designs available at the Men’s Dept. which opens tomorrow.
