.. bah humbug, not! ..

One of the most interesting and detailed finds at the December round of The Arcade Gacha Event is the Humbug Christmas gacha from DRD which features Ebenezer Scrooge’s house and furnishings.  I love the detail and the suggestion of seriousness that the house holds.

“There are some upon this earth of yours,’ returned the Spirit,
‘who lay claim to know us, and who do their deeds of
passion, pride, ill-will, hatred, envy, bigotry, and selfishness in our name;
who are as strange to us and all our kith and kin, as if they had never lived.
Remember that, and charge their doings on themselves, not us.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“I will live in the past, the present, and the future.
The spirits of all three shall strive within me.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things,
that while there is infection in disease and sorrow,
there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“I don’t know what to do!” cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath;
and making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings.
“I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I
am as merry as a school-boy. I am as giddy as a drunken man.
A merry Christmas to every-body!
A happy New Year to all the world!
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol

“And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well,
if any man alive possessed the knowledge.
May that be truly said of us, and all of us!
And so, as Tiny Tim observed,
God bless Us, Every One!
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

.. no place i’d rather be ..

Winter in Second Life is so much easier than the slush, rainy, cold in the physical world.  We can easily be outside no matter the weather that surrounds us in the virtual world which can make the beauty of winter shine through.  This month’s Arcade brings us some fun items for winter and for just enjoying our virtual life.  Today I decided to jump on the Carrier Tricycle from (epia) and go for a short ride.  For today’s outing, the duffle coat from Coco was a perfect choice as were the white kitty earmuffs from Tableau Vivant to keep my ears warm.  While I was out roaming the streets of Honeybriar in Eastwood County, I did get a bit tired and plopped down in the cart of the tricycle… a perfect place for a rest!  Be sure to visit The Arcade during the December round to gather up all the goodies!

.. at the 2014 Second Life Christmas Expo (2) ..

Every day until December 15th, there will be something to do at the 2014 Second Life Christmas Expo and Winter Breedables Fair.  Shopping is just one of those things and with 4 sims full of shops, that’s a rather easy stroll.  If you have an interest in Breedables, then you should take a walk around the 2 sims dedicated to the Breedables Fair while you are there.  The other 2 sims host varied events so check out the events webpage to keep up with what’s happening at the Expo and don’t forget to go sit on Santa’s knee and let him know your Christmas wishes!  The Expo and Fair is an annual mega event that supports Relay For Life of Second Life.

One of the creators found at the Expo is Ever An’ Angel where I found this cute skirt and top.  Couldn’t resist showing off the Snow Princess hair from Olive and Glam Affair’s December skin found at The Arcade.  The perfect for the holidays poses are from {NanTra} and also can be found at the Christmas Expo!
