When All the Stars were Falling

I received this lovely unicorn as a wedding present from my husband. :) I have named him Starlite, the most magnificent horse in the universe.

I admit it, I am a product of the 80's. I grew up with Rainbow Bright, Jem and the Holograms, My little Pony, Smurfs, and Sheera Princess of Power. Kids today don't know what they are missing. :) I decided to pay a tribute to one of my favorites, Rainbow Bright. She brings color and light to the darkest corners; she has an awesome pet horse named Starlite and has a love of stars. I actually loved Rainbow Bright so much as a kid. I remember watching the movie "Rainbow Bright and the Star Stealer" over and over again. I would pretend I was Rainbow Bright fighting Murky and Lurky's evil plans to rid the world of color. I even had a Rainbow Bright doll I carried everywhere I went. OK, enough reminiscing about my childhood. :)
Today I visited this great cartoon sim, Aiot's Toon Wonderland. I had been searching for a cartoon sim for a couple of days now. I was quite surprised to have found such a fun little place. There is definitely more than what meets the eye here. When I first arrived I was greeted by Sim owner Aiot, he informed me that there was a set of caves and even a castle at the end of the tunnel. I knew at that moment that I had found what i was looking for.

We were first stopped by this little Pickman, He asked us to help save his fellow friends from danger. They were forced to work in the mines for Murky and Lurky. I eagerly took up the challenge. Rainbow Bright is one fierce chick!

Ok Starlite, Easy boy that bee didn't mean you any harm.

We crossed the river in search of Murky's and Lurky's Evil lair. Starlite was a little scared of this bee after all I couldn't blame him he has been stung before.
we entered the dark cave........ Ohhh Starlite, I'm a little frightened, I hope were ok.

Hmmm, I think Freud would have a field day with this little guy, he just doesn't look right.

We meet a strange little guy who told us that the Pickman were digging up color crystals. Murky and Lurky were creating an evil potion and had made Pickman their zombies.

Zombie Pickman

Trespassers will be shot!
We found their lair, and headed with caution. That huge pot must be where they are making the potion.

Caught! Oh no, Starlite and I were captured and placed into the water. Luckily I had my color belt (not only just a great fashion accessory). Starlite was able to knock over the potion and we were on our way, making our great escape.

Our Escape!
Starlite knocked out this gator with one swift kick.

We saved the Pickman and restored color to their world.

Special Dedication to my KIKI, my little sister in RL who has decided to join SL, hope this brings back good memories for you too. Love you, your BS(lol) :)

When all the stars were falling,
I reached up like you said.
All the stars were falling,
One hit me in the head,
And I fell down, down, down.

Wedding Bells were ringing on Saturday May 19Th 2007. That is the day Frankie and I joined hands and became virtual husband and wife. :)

True love is the soul's recognition of it's counterpoint in another. It is a rare thing and something to be valued. To love, is to see things other people do not see. To see beneath the surface, to the qualities, which make our beloved special and unique. To see with loving eyes, is to know inner beauty. To be loved is to be seen, and known, as we are known to no other. Always remember.. the one who loves us, is giving us an exclusive gift: a piece of themselves, and that piece is something only they could give us. It takes more then love to make any relationship work. It takes trust, to know in your hearts that you want only the best for each other. It takes dedication, to stay open to one another, to learn and grow, even when it is difficult to do so. And it takes faith, to go forward together without knowing what the future holds for you both. It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a having a sense of humor. It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner. -Rick Wake our Officiate

Mr. and Mrs. Frankie and Bells Palliard.

Our first kiss as husband and wife. :) He sweeps me off my feet, makes my heart race and takes my breath away. I was so thrilled to have this moment finally happen. I had a huge smile on my face the entire day. (It actually hurt after a while, j/k lol) :D I felt just like Cinderella (without the ugly stepsisters).

Our First Dance

Now just in case you wanted to know... We got married at the Valentine Wedding Chapel. I absolutely loved this place. Dancing, romantic spots for cuddling, and a gorgeous view. I recommend anyone who is looking for a romantic spot to explore this Sim. (its not just for weddings.)

Spoiled?? who me? Well yes, just a little bit. :) I do feel very fortunate to have found my price charming. I look forward to each day that will pass with him by my side. He has been my knight defending my honor. My confidante with whom I share my secrets. My rock when I am having the most difficult day. He encourages me not to give up on my ideas. I will treasure him always, for he is My Friend, My Husband, My Partner.

Oh Lovie! what a wonderful day we had. I love you Mr. Palliard

Running all the time
Running to the future
with you right by my side

I’m the one you chose
out of all the people
you wanted me the most
I’m so sorry that I’ve fallen
help me up, lets keep on running
don’t let me fall out of love

running, running
as fast as we can
I really hope you make it
(do you think we'll make it?)
we're running
keep holding my hand
it's so we don't get separated

be the one I need
be the one I trust most
don’t stop inspiring me
sometimes it's hard to keep on running
we work so much to keep it going
don’t make me want to give up

All Star

Knowing how much I love basketball, My guy took me to the T- Mobile NBA Arena. Now this is an amazing sim to visit especially if your a basketball fan. All your favorite playoff teams are here, Including my favorite ... The San Antonio Spurs!!!!!!! oh and thats not cause there my home team or anything, Honest :) LOL

First thing you might want to do is pick up a jersey from your team. I wanted Tony Parker, but since it was not available I settled for another favorite of mine, Mr. Tim Duncan. The jeserys are only 100l so if you like more than one team you can pick up several jerseys. Now jeserys are not the only thing that available for purchase, oh no I also saw some nifty headbands and wristbands to keep the sweat off while playing. After finding your team jersey you can decide to show off your skills on the court.

I was pretty impressed with this basketball court, It looks almost official. I started out by grabbing a basketball provided by the T- Mobile Arena. This basketball is great as you walk it bounces the ball so it looks like your actually dribbling down the court.

Next i wanted to try my hand out at making a couple of baskets. In order to shoot the ball you need to get a hud from the back of the arena. While wearing the hud shots can be made by while in mouse look. I had a little trouble at first but after a little practice I was making Three pointers just like the pros.

Bells shoot and scores the winning point!!!!! the crowd cheers and we are now champions!!
ahhhh if only it were real, but a girl can dream......right.

Next we move to the Larry O'Brien Trophy Room . This is where you can pose for pictures just like your favorite NBA players. Woot! Spurs Are Number One !!!!!!!!

and finally the Cisco Press Room. I always wondered what it would feel like to be standing behind this podium. Now all i need is one of those championship rings. LOL

Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play
Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

You Know I'm No Good

Drama, Drama, Drama................... That's all I have had this week and it's only Thursday. I always heard about this thing they call drama but, I never knew it would have such a fiery temper and would leave such a sting. While the details of the drama fade away, the pain is still there. Friendly reminder to all: Avatars have a RL person behind them! While we can be almost invincible in physical form on SL, our emotional side can become easily bruised and damaged.
All this Drama is too much, I need a distraction, an escape......I need a good shopping spree!!!


Now I know have said before how much I love the store Artilleri. It really is one of my favorite stores in all of SL, but a new store has caught my eye, that store is Inalde. Ivalde is a clothing store for women that specializes in retro styles from the periods of 1920's-1960's. The prices of the clothing are very affordable. All the items I purchased were under 300l. The quality is great as well. I love the detail that has been added to the items. I think i might eventually end up with the whole store,........... well at least a majority of it (hehe).

I feel like I cheated myself for not finding this store earlier. So many awesome clothes to wear and so little time. :)

Hungry for Soup

Now shopping alone didn't cure the blues of SL drama, for that I needed something very special.

He makes all the drama fade away.

I cheated myself like I knew I would
I told ya I was troubled, you know that I'm no good
