According to my planner today is French Fry Day and I couldn’t let this day pass without a photo to commemorate it.
I mustache you if you like fries. Now I am curious, where are your favorite fries from? I mean for me it’s depends on my mood, but most of the time I get fries from the golden arches. However my absolute favorite fries were the home made ones my dad made when I was a kid. He even has, or maybe still has, a french fry cutter that seriously looks like some sort of torture device. They were always cooked to perfection with just the right amount of salt. I with move on to the credits before I sit here and carry on about fries all day. And remember ladies…Fries before guys 😉
Hi everyone. Sorry I have been away for a bit, I was seeing many a doctor to discover why I am hurting all the time and having a hard time walking. Good news, it’s been solved, bad news it means surgery in August. So in the in between times I am going for some more natural pain relief. Wanna guess what that is? Pretty obvious huh? So if my posts are spotty or the pictures are kind of out there now you know why. Chances are there will be an extended break in September while I am recovering, so I don’t know where I am going with this. Oh hey look down there, credits! ↓
I am still playing a little catch up from last month. I of course had to make a trip to Enchantment in May because the theme was A Midsummer Night’s Dream. When I was in high school I worked backstage when the play was performed. I was part of the costume crew so it holds a special place in my heart. I think I even had a crush on “Oberon”, but it was forever ago. Anyway I picked up this outfit and found this pose lurking in my inventory so it was a match made in…the forest?
This gave me the chance to use a windlight that was shared with me back in April or May as well. The colors matched my outfit so perfectly. I am going to move onto the credits before I ramble more about my slacker ways.
The coffee bar that is. Okay so maybe it’s more of a coffee house. When I saw this dress it reminded my of the 90’s. This was a time when I was hitting up the coffee houses all over my drinking a cappucino, and flirting away. Now I brew my coffee at home and make it strong! I am also a lot older than I was back then. I have been sitting on this photo for about a month and will admit after seeing ads for the Friends reunion that I knew I had to post this…finally.

Before I knew the title of the Bard Queen’s Quest, which happens to be The Language of Birds, I was inspired by this tree to take a bird themed photo. It also gave me an excuse to wear a pretty dress and accessories. Now the faire doesn’t last too much longer so if you want to get questing you better get hopping!
It is funny that not too long ago I was sitting listening to the birds chirping one morning while I was sipping my coffee and I was wondering what the birds were going on about. It sounded like a very interesting conversation was being had.\
Long ago in a small village lived a kind old lady named Ethel. Ethel spent most of her days tending to the garden she loved. She carefully weeded, watered and even talked to her plants. She had once heard it makes them grow much better.
Ethel always paid special attention to her tomato plants as she would use them to make the best sauce in town, canning some for all the neighbors. One morning Ethel went out to the garden ready to harvest her goodies when a little voice piped up from the near the tomatoes, “Good Morning Miss Ethel”, the little voice cried. Well Ethel looked over to the tomatoes and imagine the shock when she spied a little tomato staring up at her. She walked over and gently lifted him to her shoulder.
Well there was no way she could eat this little fellow, so instead of becoming a lovely jar of tomato sauce to save for the winter he became her new best friend and together they lived happily ever after in her little cottage.
I have been trying to write this post for a couple of days now, but my non-digital life has gotten in the way! As you have probably seen I have posted about some of the regions and some of the shopping that can be had, but today I am going to focus on other things.
Last weekend I brought my friend Lex to the fair, for what I think was his first time. We started in Featherfall and well I can’t exactly quote what he said because there were some four letter words involved, but they were used in awe.
While we were wandering we ran into this amazingly kind and awesome looking pirate. He was kind enough to let me take a picture of myself with him. I may have tried to snag a slug of rum while passing by at one point.
I took in a show during the week, this is from a dance about an Irish pirate woman. There were more dances performed by the Oasis Dancers, but if I added pictures of each one I would run out of space (not really, but you know what I mean).
I finished off the week by starting the Bard Queen’s Quest. I have only done the first half so far, but I can’t wait to finish and find the treasures at the end. The Faire doesn’t stop today. there is still the quest to finish, shopping to be had, and if you hurry a silent auction to bid on and all sorts of other fun things. So what are you waiting for?!!?!?!?
PS. I didn’t notice till now that Lex wasn’t fully rezzed…sorry!
In the middle of the forest where the fawns graze is Lillemor the centaur. She takes in all the abandoned and orphaned fawn of the forest. She is their mother and protector.
I got the idea for a protector after watching a video of humans rescuing orphaned fawns. Okay it was also an excuse to dress up as a doe centaur and to not wear clothes. But look how cute I am with my rosy cheeks, horns and green eyes.
I can’t fib, the whole time I was was taking this picture I was thinking of the song from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, you know the Disney version, when she sings at the well. I mean it seems fitting that someone with scales and a horn would be wishing to find someone who would love her. I mean it’s not every person you find with kirin scales and a unicorn horn. At least she isn’t in rags like Snow White, she is in a totally color coordinated gown! I mean it looks like it was meant to go with the scales (ignore the fact that there is a HUD that allows you to select colors).
Do I look like a fierce Valkyrie? Well even if I don’t look too fierce I am loving my Valkyrie self, even as a blond! I could do some serious damage with my bow and arrow I think.
Shhh don’t let anyone know that I am all talk and very little actual Valkyrie action. I am a lover not a fighter after all. I think it is time for me to return to Valhalla (the region at the Fairelands) and see what kind of shenanigans I can get up to.
