Happy Anniversary!

Saturday was a very busy day. We had the Caledon-Winterfell ball, of which I was only able to stay for 3 of the dances and the Steelhead Pirate dance. Most importantly though, Saturday marked the 6 month anniversary for Edward and myself. My goodness! How time does fly. Here's to many more my love.

Shiver Me Timbers!!!!!!

Move over Captain Jack! Saturday night saw a very special event take place aboard the Jolly Pidgeon which had made berth at the Steelhead docks. In hopes of getting Steelhead Harbourside up and running, we held a fundraiser and was it successful! Not only that, but what is better than a pirate dance? A pirate dance with bare chested men! *fans herself*

Indeed. It was a night to remember. Lunar decided to set the topless bar at L$15K. He should have set it higher (told ya bro). The men had stripped to their waists by 7:20pm. Ladies, bless you for having such generous natures. ;-)

So without further ado, I present to you the images I was able to capture that night. Lately, things have been very slow to rezz for me and unfortunatly, I was not able to capture pictures of all the men in their topless state as some appeared to be wearing shirts until nearly the end of the dance. I *know* that none of the men shirked their duty (bless their hearts!) and I'm certain you will see evidence of them on other journals. As well, I didn't capture any picture of the brave ladies who went topless when the pot hit L$60K. Sorry fellas!

Our very fine, obviously easy on the eyes Sheriff, Fuzzball Ortega

Yummy! And this is all mine! Ladies, eat your hearts out! ;-D

Aza, showing he has the heart for Steelhead (literally!)

Lunar (or "Abs" as he's been dubbed by Miss Burton) showing his stuff

A view of some of the revellers

Do I really need to explain this? *giggles*

Thank you to all our fine gentlemen who lost their shirts for Steelhead. As one of the ladies in the crowd, let me just say was a night for drool buckets, with or without Robbie Williams playing. In fact, I think the water levels in the harbour went up about 6 inches. Thanks again fellas! It was truly a night to remember!!!

So....You think you have what it takes to be a Victorian??

While skulking about on the aethernet, I found a couple interesting sites to visit. Look them up and see if you have what it takes to be a proper Victorian!

Have Fun!

Steelhead Chippendales....well Almost

This Saturday, from 7-9 pm SLT, feel free to come down to the Steelhead Docks for a very special dance. The Jolly Pidgeon is being brought out of retirement for a pirate style dance on board. This dance is also a fundraiser for the sim, in hopes that we will be able to get Steelhead Harbourside from being a map to being up and running. Miss Eugenia wants her farm folks!

There will be a tip jar out and once a certain figure has been reached, the gracious (and good looking) men of Steelhead have agreed to remove their shirts for the remainder of the evening. As well, our dear Sheriff Fuzzball Ortega announced that if all the plots were booked, he'd even wear a grass skirt. Lunar suggested he might even do less clothing than that. ;-)

Of course, once the Steelhead men have lost their shirts, the other men in the crowd are more than welcome to bare their chests as well.

Now I know what some of you men might be thinking... "Why would I want to go to a dance where the men remove their shirts???" Gentlemen, may I point out to you that such a dance will draw ladies...lots of ladies. Pirate ladies. Who knows what may happen?? ;-)

The Men of Steelhead are: TotalLunar Eclipse, Fuzzball Ortega, Edward Pearse, Aza Zymurgy, Darien Mason, Hawc Decosta, Remington Pinion, Hotspur O'Toole, Phineas Messmer and Dominic Roffo. If you are a gentleman who is either currently renting or has your name down for a plot in Harbourside and would like to participate, please let me know.

Thank you and see you at the docks on Saturday, December 15 from 7-9pm SLT. Bring your lindens and let's party!

Drat! I've been Tagged!!!

*Forces herself to abandon her Christmas baking and settles down at the diningroom table, wiping her flour dusted hands on her apron and smoothing back her hair*

Well. It would appear I've been tagged. Several times in fact. The only reason why I've not sent CHED (that's Christine's Hairy Eyeball of Doom for those of you not in the know)to dog your steps and torment you all to the end of your days is that I happen to like you all and so, I have decided to play along. However, do note, that I do not care if I am tagged a thousand more times after this, these are and will remain the only eight facts/random bits of triva about me that will be leaked to the public at large. If you want to know more, get to know me. ;-)

Firstly: The RULES

(1) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
(2) People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
(3) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
(4) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog

Alright, time to get down to business.

1. My motivating spirit has harboured a dream to someday own a bed and breakfast in a Victorian home. However, seeing as she's not really a morning person, it will probably end up more Bed and Brunch.....or Bed and Lunch? Dinner? niche in the market perhaps

2. The closest my motivating spirit has ever gotten to anything "Bacon" is when she fries it up for breakfast sometimes.

3. My motivating spirit nearly got to meet the Queen of England when she was in school. Her essay went to the finals but did not win, much to her sorrow.

4. I have another brother in SL, who is not seen very often, mostly because his typist is from the UK. In fact, I'm not sure if he and Lunar have ever met. He's cool though, and tall like Lunar, which proves that I did not inherit any of the tall gene.

5. My inner prude keeps Edward entertained on a regular basis. One never knows when she will appear and what she will have a fit about.

6. My motivating spirit is currently very keen on dabbling in Black Powder shooting. Unlike me, she is actually a pretty decent shot. It's amazing what one can do when not caught in the deathly grip of lag.

7. I have an alt.

8. My shop, Rosehaven Recipes got it's name from Edward's and my home in Steelhead, Rosehaven. I named my plot that but I nearly went with the name "Thistledown Cottage".

Now for the fun part....people to torment with this tagging business. I hereby pass the torch to the following persons:

1. Mrs. Charity Dogsbody Fotherington
2. Miss Fushia Begonia
3. Miss Qlippothic Projects
4. His Grace, the Duke of Greystoke, Gnarlihotep Abel
5. Dame Lapin Paris
6. Mrs. Peterman, Nablia Nadir
7. Baroness Amber Palowakski
8. Dr. Oolon Sputnik

THERE! Done! *Heads back to the kitchen to rescue the cookies before they are mere cinders*

Keeping the Peace with the Holy Smackdown

Saturday night was Steelhead's weekly dance. While it is normally held on the Friday, it was moved to accomodate the St. Andrew's festivities which were happening in Caledon, Loch Avie. I do hope my beloved Edward will be able to provide readers with a summary of that event, as my camera was not working at it's best ability. However, do know that it was a lovely event and I do believe a good time was had by many, if not all.

So, in honour of the Steelhead SWAT team, we assembled at the Saloon and prepared to party down. For those of you who don't know, our SWAT team is not what you'd call ordinary (which stands to reason as Steelhead is anything *but* ordinary itself). Our SWAT team is made up of a group of hardworking ladies of the cloth, the Sisters of Mercy, the Defenders of Peace, Order and Ammunition, the believers of the Father, the Son and the Holy hoooo! Led by our esteemed Sheriff, the SWAT team is made up of nuns.....nuns with guns.

All in all, the dance was a lot of fun. Sister CeAire pointed out that the only way you could tell if someone had fully rezzed or not was if their clothes were black instead of grey. Without any further ado, here are some pictures from the evening.

A picture of the crowd

Cardinal Somme and her Holiness, Sister Eva with her beating stick. The Spontaneous Spanker, Sister Myfanwy and another of the Davies sisters in the background

Brother Hawc and Sister CeAire, after being told to get some daylight between them. Apparently Hawc has a very large Bandiolier

Adding a little Eastern flavour to the event, Adso Krogstad (I hope I spelled that correctly)

Some more of the revelers, including Sister Whoop-Ass, Father O'Toole, Mr. Offcourse (who was down that night.....I think)and our illustrious Sheriff. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!!!

Next week, it's back to Friday night and the theme is Steampunk. Tell your friends and come on down for a good time!
