Sheree’s Chrissy Advent List 2018

Yay! Once again it’s December and we all know what that mean.

That’s right! Hot weather, cold meats and salad, bbq foods, baking our bodies on the beach, ice creams, kinis and more fun summer stuff.

Oh, and freebies!

Sooo…

I’ve been doing some running around for free advent calendar thingies for you as we lead up to Chrissy. Beware that the list might grow some come back looking for the occasional update with extra landmarks to snatch a free Chrissy gift.

Some of my favourites from 2017 are also deep into the festive season such as Eclectic Stars who sell cute stuff for geeks. I’m not a geek but I have bought a few items from Eclectic Stars since trying out their gifts from last year’s Chrissy advent calendar. And don’t forget to click their MM board.

Somethings for you to keep in mind with some advent calendars working different to usual.

  • Noel Advent Calendar Express at Foxcity is a region wide celebration where there is one gift for every two days, where each business offers a gift for 2 days on their days. Each store has a notecard explaining how it works and which store on which two dates.
  • Skye Qi’s Vintage Apparel: This item will be a piece of an outfit that will eventually be a part of an entire outfit. The big difference is that if you miss a day, you do not need to miss a piece of the outfit. Let’s say you come for three days and then miss day 4 and 5. You come back on day 6 and get the sixth gift for free but now days 4 and 5 are marked for sale for 4L and 5L respectively. (The number of Lindens of the number of the date you missed)
  • Abranimations is the only location in my advent calendar list requiring group membership. Well worth it.

Here your 17 Landmarks to grab yourself something for Chrissy. Remember that some stores give you more than an advent gift but another daily gift.

I’m not endorsing any stores. I’m not sponsored or paid by any stores. Anything I post is without sponsorship or other rewards given to me unless stated otherwise.

LoveCraft: Abandoned Asylum Garden

There’s a place of great mythology where storytellers talk of. An underwater garden which once housed those who took the path to madness. Some say it long sunk to rising seas. Others say it rises only to catch new victims to consume their dark forbidden souls.

Some say that this path to madness is run by Gorgons who lure lonely souls as new captives with a rose garden where they are met by someone appears too beautifully and sensual to refuse.

LE Asylum Garden Fountain_007

 

She appears in white like a bride, unless given away by her many lengths of tentacles trailing below her gown. If only the distraction of her seducing didn’t distract from her real form.

She is called when her next victim sits on the lover’s fountain.

She only appears in her form when she enters through the gate only to transform once she stands before her next taking. Her radiant face and her naked form as her eyes capture her next victim’s soul. A soul captured once they take their place on lover’s fountain, visible only to the Gorgon said to remove them existence as she takes them into her realm.

Never to be seen again.

Lovecraft Festival is currently open 17th to 26th August. Come and take the path to madness to enjoy entertainment and visit vendors while you’re here.

Lovecraft & The Deep

They told me that I should never go to the deep because it was dangerous. Dangerous because something lived down there in the dark murky water of the deep where those who were lucky to return, weren’t.

But she called me. I could hear her voice calling to me in my sleep. Beckoning me to come to her as I heard her eerie yet sensual voice.

43345825204_44e7352d1a_z

So down I went. Deep into her chasm. And there I found her.

I found her emptiness that called me. Her nothing. Her everything.

I explored her chambers where upon of which I was drawn to and I sat. I sat on her furnishings as she claimed me.

I was hers just as she was mine and at that point I knew that I would never leave this room again as I sat as the Captain of my boat, writing my captain’s memoirs as I decayed to nothing.

She had claimed me on my path to madness.

Event: LoveCraft Festival

In the realms of a murky darkness is where the mysterious awaits. Is it dark and murky or is it madness. Or are you the mad person here?

Is that a tentacle curling up around your thigh or have you lost the plot?

5th Annual Larry Armchair Event

Today I attended the 5th Annual Larry Armchair Event which is held as part of the Relay For Life for American Cancer Society to raise money to support people with cancer. With the support of Second Life Aviation and Music to Fly By(MtFB), Larry’s Armchair Event set off with tremendous support.

Starting at Flying Burrito Brothers Unity Airport where a chair with balloons securely attached awaited us, a flock of excited aviators were keen to start this group flight to celebrate the very real trip taken by Larry Walters on the 36th Anniversary of his pioneering armchair flight on 2nd of July, 1982.

29287592318_633ef3b32e_zFlying Burrito Brothers Unity Airport

Departing at 1pm today, 2 July 2018(SLT), one excited traveler made a call out for wine and wine she was delivered. Thank you JɅƳĐΕƝ Ŧαггση for the wine. It made my wine drunken yelling at boaters that much more enjoyable. *hic*

We took off heading east to the Blake Sea, traveling far overseas, spilling the odd drop of wine into the ocean to keep the fish happy(why should fishies miss out?), floating away past Hollywood Airport and over the Rainbow Sails Yacht Club. I was going to yell out to a fellow rainbow sailor but the wind was blowing my words back in my mouth to be heard.

42441480854_111254d02c_zRainbow Sails Yacht Club

Typically, my yacht was hiding from a wined up balloon riding aviator as you can see in the photo above. Well, you can’t as she’s hiding.

We then headed around and drifted as the winds blew us around facing west, or heading west as I’m sure I was drifting while facing in all directions. As we drifted in the air among curious birds and the occasional hovering helicopter, we passed Honah Lee Field Airport and over the Island of Newbs at Blake Sea – Sirens Isle. I tipped a little spare wine as I passed over. I hope the receivers of raining wine realised it was wine.

29288887688_b5f443988c_zLanding at Komatsu Regional Airport

And then with the amazing power of the wind, an ever changing beautiful creature of the sky, we were blown south west where we landed at Komatsu Regional Airport where we celebrated a successful balloon armchair flight with Luke Flywalker blasting us away with rocking tunes.

Somewhere between the start and finish, a couple of us including myself somehow lost our clothing. Whether it was the wind or the wine that dissolved our clothing is up for discussion but thankfully we, Captain Street Reaper and I were wearing our swimwear in case of an emergency watery landing. Nice budgie smuggler, Captain.

All up we had a brilliant day, the sun was bright, the skies were clear, the wind was helpful and the wine, well let’s say the wine was awesome.

Second Pride: This Is Me

June 1969 saw the Stonewall Riots(Manhattan, USA) which gave birth to the rise of rights for LGBTQI communities through global activism. It is for this reason America celebrates their Pride Month in June and we in Second Life also celebrate Pride in June, Second Life being American founded, owned and located.

second pride logo

Last year’s Second Pride was very exciting for me as it was my first virtual pride celebration to attend. It was like experiencing a reawakening of who I am.

There was the moment of love where a gay man broke down through all the built up guilt and abuse placed on him over the years. The biggest virtual group hug supported him offering all the love and support he had been denied all his life, I was reminded why I love my rainbow communities. And in days where there are Governments, political movements and some religious institutions pushing hard to bring back all of the bigotry long defeated, now is more important than ever to stand proudly together and say ‘This is me’.

2018’s Second Pride Event, ‘This is me’ is a celebration of community with monies raised to support The Trevor Project;

“Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.”

This is going to be one exciting celebration for nobody puts on a party like us rainbows do.

Every other day 16th to 24th of June is open 11am to 11pm SLT

10th Anniversary Parade/Party Bay City

The party is on at Bay City’s 10th Anniversary Parade and Party as we celebrate ten years of the best Second Life community in Second Life. Yes, I know I’m biased but not because Cafe Sheree is based here. Bay City rocks as the community spirit here is very impressive.

I quickly felt at home at Bay City.

We gathered at Bay City Municipal Park at Harwich from 12NoonSLT. Everyone was in a jovial mood as we prepared for the parade under the esteemed leadership of Bay City’s Marianne McCann whose our Not Quite the Mayor.

Then off we left. A parade of fun loving Bay Citirians who showed off their Bay Pride.

41337208985_da4972e245_z

There were four parade groups. Each of us strutting our stuff. Each of us with our own Bay Pride on as we headed to Bay City Showgrounds.

What a crowd. So many happy here wearing their Bay Pride. It makes me happy that I chose Bay City for Cafe Sheree. I got a chance to wiggle with well known Second Life adventurer/blogger, Daniel Voyager. Hey may not be hopping mad but he has the hippity hop.

Lindens also attended to party with us. Yay!

Four hours of entertainment with live performers and DJ’s.

I love you, Bay City! ♥
