So Happy to be a Petal [Jan. 7th, 2008|09:03 pm]
adele_poppy
Oh...I feel so happy! I just gained a Family, complete with a lovely Elder Sister: the famous Fräulein Landgrebe, who had taken the opportunity earlier to sort-of threaten to impose early morning cold showers on her Younger Sisters. Then she kindly decided not to do it. Which is rather happy-making, too, isn't it?

For a real and coherent description of the day, including the Feast of the Epiphany which we also celebrated, go here.Collapse )

Oh, and don't y'all think this picture looks JUST LIKE Miss Sushuri?


And doesn't this one look like Fräulein Landgrebe?


Oh, and before I forget: Art Neo Chairs

Walkies and Talkies [Dec. 30th, 2007|10:57 am]
adele_poppy
Well, firstly--since I have no coherent report of the meeting last night: like honored Miss Sushuri, I comfortably trust that there is a complete and proper report of it somewhere--I would like to post a photo of the snowy egret I saw at the park this morning. It's not as if they are really rare any more, but it is rare to see them up at the little lake where I take the dog for walkies.

Now, my dog is a smallish terrier of mixed extraction (oh, there's Cairn and Schnauser in there somewhere, we are almost sure) but for some reason, people don't recognize it as a dog at all upon first meeting.

Some of the guesses as to its species:
1. Mountain lion (Please. Mountain lion? The dog weighs 18 pounds.)
2. Porcupine
3. "Some sort of cat"
4. Raccoon
5. Amoeba (my wife)
6. Trumpeter swan (me)

Anyway, I take the dog out twice a day for walkies, or runsies as the case may be. Here is a picture of the startling view I had today during our exercise:


And, although there is no official report of the minutes of the first meeting of the White Rose Family, here is another photo of us (sitting very prettily, I thought):

Not a single slumper among us.

And here is a photo of radiantly beautiful Fräulein Landgrebe, newly elevated to Elder Sister status to our delight and joy:

Isn't her frock a marvelous example of Vintesse Art Neo, with its shining rays?

Dancing! All Dressed Up! [Dec. 24th, 2007|01:38 pm]
adele_poppy
Miss Landgrebe and I both had gorgeous new frocks (I am going to have to get busy if I want my designs to compete with all the gorgeousness in the shops these days) and the tango animation was working smoothly. An impromptu ball ensued.

We danced the "Tanko" which, in case you are wondering, is the Virtualian version of the tango (it is a much better version, of course):


There were fancy steps:


There were more fancy steps, performed this time in a nice oval shape:

Like Miss Sushuri, I have resisted buying a skin for my avatar, but my reason was that (having resisted going to the stores that sell skins because they are SO Pittish and they make one look at naked pettes when one really doesn't want to--I mean not when you're SHOPPING. PLEASE.) (Of course, looking at naked pettes can be very nice, if they are arranged artistically and elegantly, and if one is in the mood to look at them.) I thought that it would erase the very features that make my face look like Adele: the arching brows, aquiline nose and rosy cheeks.

Well, to some extent they have modified the features, but they have defined them in a very charming and wholesome way--not at all coarse or Pittish. And my nose and brows are still the same.

Here is a photo I took yesterday (I was admiring little Miss Sushuri, but caught an incidental view of my own small self):

New Shop in Virtualia [Feb. 16th, 2007|07:30 am]
adele_poppy
I returned home after a week away, so naturally instead of dealing with the accumulated bills and mail, I logged into Virtualia and went shopping!

The usual shops there may display wares that are garish, Pittish and unsuitable, but this shop at Kyung 32, 150, 69 ("1-800-Betties 1930's") did not seem to offer anything nasty. However, I could not rez the whole store, so blondes may not want to venture there unaccompanied. Just in case.

I did get a very pleasant surprise: Brunette shoes! These appear to be sensible Oxford pumps and tango sandals. I would have posted photos of these in "The Directory" of the Blue Camellia Club, along with real stockings and 1950s foundation garments, if I had known how.

Here is what I found:

Berry Hunting [Aug. 14th, 2006|08:22 pm]
adele_poppy
I went berry picking yesterday, along the old train tracks where the blackberry bushes grow wild. I told Miss Sushuri about it, bragging that I had picked almost two quarts of berries, of which one quart arrived home. I had been disgustingly greedy and have the juice stains to show for it.

Miss Sushuri worried that they actually might be the deadly chortlewhortleberries that grow so rampantly these days, disguising themselves as edible blackberries. At least I think that was what she called them. But we established, after some discussion, that whortlechortleberries are not completely deadly--only a little bit deadly. Also, I am quite sure I ate an ant or two while snacking,* and everyone knows ants are the ant-idote specific to the fatal-ish toxins in these evil berries.

I had vague theories about formic acid and so on, but it is probably the word “ant” itself that is protective, don’t you think? I wonder what puns Chinese or Czech blondes use when they are picking poisonous fruit disguised as blackberries.



*”Snacking” is such a demure little word for the swinish display I put on. Did you know berry juice can stain your hair?
