I'll cover you.......

Live in my house,
I'll be your shelter,
Just pay me back
With one thousand kisses
Be my lover
and I'll cover you

Open your door,
I'll be your tenant
Don't got much baggage to lay at your feet
But sweet kisses I've got to spare
I'll be there and I'll cover you.

I think they meant it when they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you are my love, on life
Be my life.

Just slip me on,
I'll be your blanket
Wherever,whatever, I'll be your coat

You'll be my King, and I'll be your castle.
No, you'll be my Queen, and I'll be your moat.

I think they meant it when they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you are my love, on life
All my life

I've longed to discover
Something as true as this is
So with a thousand sweet kisses,I'll cover you,
With a thousand sweet kisses,I'll cover you,

When you're worn out and tired,
When your heart has expired
If you're cold and you're lonely
You've got one nickel only
With a thousand sweet kisses, I'll cover you,
With a thousand sweet kisses, I'll cover you

Oh, lover,
I'll cover you,
Oh, lover,
I'll cover you...

*Mean it*

Latest build... the "Little Punk!"

This started its SLife as a two store castle, and ended up a smaller, one story, Steampunk-style house.  With a footprint of 30 x 30, and weighing in at only 69 prims, it's a roomy place, that you can spend those saved prims decorating!  Featuring all original textures, it's promo priced at 250L$.

*Entrepreneurially yours*
*Update.... had my first two sales yesterday and today.... one each of the this one and the little Grunge Shack!  Yay!*

From Pain to Pleasure..... (strange day, but good pics!)

   To be honest, most of yesterday sucked huge donkey ass.  Jus' sayin'.   I messed up a build I was working on in SL umpteen times, RL was being a PITA, and I was in a foul mood.  The final straw was when I accidentally screwed up the texture sizing/rotation on the build when my mouse decided to go wonky, and help me out.  Meh.  Needless to say, this did not help my disposition, so I went to FB, and then on the 'Net for a while, at Derren's insistence.  (I think he was just tired of hearing me bitch... LOL!)
   It worked.  When I came back, we danced to some nice, slow tunes in the yard, he soothed my frazzled nerves such as only he can, and life was good again.

     After I was calmed down, and we had had a lovely time already, it was time to head to "The Annual Surfing Adventure!"  Mistletoe Ethaniel, who befriended Tel his first night on SL, hosts this event, and my closest friends were wanting to meet Derren, so the timing was perfect. 
The intrepid Elflet herself!
PJ Zessinthal, whom I've known since the old NF days, and is now a RL friend, as well.
Latis Lewellyn-MacGregor, the RL friend that is responsible for my addiction to SL, having drug Tel's butt here oh, so long ago.  It was SO great to see her, as she's not on as much as she used to be, and our RL's have of course branched out in different paths, as so often happens.

Babydoll Derren lookin' all butch and yummy, riding inside the curl of a deadly wave.
We had SUCH a blast!

(Yes, that is an engagement ring on my finger. NO, we haven't set a date.  YES, I will post it here, and send out group notices, but we're in no hurry.  Life is good now, and it seems that my marriages on SL last about three weeks... lol!... so we aren't rushing this time.  XD)

Yeah, Baby!  I rode this one all the way in, and just happened to get a good shot. (I know, Derren expects me to inject a "That's what SHE said" here, but I shall refrain, as I think he already regrets having given me that gesture... LOL!)  Sportin' my dreads, I think I'm ready to hit the RL beach.  I am SO over winter!
(BTW, when we can afford it, we're gettin' surf waves for the homestead.... most of these places are SO freakin' laggy, that we had to hop to three, before finally ending up at Bundoran Reef, which happens to be the very first place PJ and Mist took me surfing in SL, and is STILL the best!  Oh, and Mist is working on a book on SL sports now, in RL, and I've offered her some of my pics for it.  That could be fun!)

And finally, Derren had to sleep, due to the time diffs that we all put up with in SL, and just logged off from the beach, after a sweet cuddle huggle.  I stayed a bit and chatted with my posse of beauties, and then we said nainai and promised to keep up the tradition.
Love y'all, and thanks for helping to make a miserable day bright again!

So.. um.. (shuffles feet)... yeah...

Hi Teleny Macarthur,
Congratulations! Your proposal has been accepted by Derren Nexen!

Personal Message :

As I've told you many times before you're not getting rid of me that

easily :) You've made me so happy babes. Thank you.

Love you always.

Derren xoxox

So... um... yeah... I guess it's official?  *grinning from ear to ear*

*Joy to the world... all the boys and girls now... Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea... Joy to you and me"...

Just a nice night......

Derren and I went dancing at Hotlanta last night, as we're both kinda "over" the Industry scene atm, and just wanted some quiet time, and less rowdy music.  It's interesting, because the conversation always gets deeper, more emotional when we are there, instead of the other clubs.  Maybe it's the "I've lost somebody, and have the blues" music, or the "I've found somebody, but still have the blues" music.... heh... I don't really know, but we've had a couple of our most revealing and heartfelt conversations there.  Hotlanta is where (I think, though I'm sure he will correct me if I'm wrong!  LOL!)  we "made it official" and stopped pretending to just "like" each other.  Last night's convo was a bit deeper, and touched on some rather sensitive issues for us both, so I don't think I'll share it.... let's just say that I feel closer to him now than I already did before, if that's possible.  Love you, Babydoll!
*All starry eyed and stuff*

OMG, I did it!

Well, it's up and running.... I have a Marketplace Store!  LOL!  Here's hoping!

*Hoping for at least ONE sale this week!!!!*

OK, so here goes nuffin'......

     I've been trying to reintroduce myself to almost lost building skills.  Heh.  So far, in about a week, two builds that I'm reasonably satisfied with, out of five that I have started.  The first is a simple skybox, 98 prims, I think, that is kinda-sorta Modern Mediterranean with Ancient Influence... very neutral in tone, but will be sold mod/copy and mod/trans so others can do as they wish with it.    I've also done a version of it that I call "The Gregyptian", because of the texturing on it.... to me, it has a rather Alexandrian flair.
    The second build has all original textures, except the flooring.  I just couldn't find anything that I liked/wanted for it in SL or on Marketplace, so I made my own.  At appr. 149 prims ( I think), I call it "Oriental Splendor", because I'm conceited like that.  (I am rather pleased with the way it turned out, though... LOL!)  Hope y'all like 'em, and if anybody wants to see them inworld, just gimme a shout when I'm on!
    Any and all comments or critiques welcome.  One can always learn from others!

(None of these photos were 'Shopped.... just used different WindLight settings.

Pensive days.......

     Derren has been incredibly busy with RL commitments, as have I, and we're not getting a lot of "us" time, which is sometimes good for a relationship.  I must admit that during the holiday season, I can be a bit of a beast at times, and not the good kind that actually has fur on SL.  *grins a bit*  I've not been all that pleasant towards him, towards my other friends and family, and have retreated into building world a bit. 
     What started as a "ok, Tel, you're in a foul mood, so just find something to do, so you don't piss the world off" thing, has become a bit of an addiction.   I am reteaching myself skills that I've let atrophy through neglect, and, surprisingly, my first large structure actually turned out quite nice, if I do say so myself.  I'll try to get some pics up to post, later.  I think I will go back into business on SL (I know... we've all heard this before, right?  Heh.)  However, since I have a sim to support, and a family around me now, and RL is barely paying for itself, I think this is the incentive I need to actually "DO" something on SL, instead of just partying all the time.  I am a highly creative, rather artistic person RL, so I might as well use those skills inworld, hopefully for profit.  If it doesn't pay off that well, at least I have found something I enjoy, and hell, it's an excuse to have an even larger, more disorganized inventory, right?  LOL!  Actually, I'll probably dump the builds on my "other" Tel, Macmoragh,  and let him be the business front.  He only has about 200 things in inventory, even though he's a few months older than Macarthur is.  Lucky bastard!
     Meanwhile, I'm missin' my dollbaby, and last night, Tel actually managed to stop.  Just that.  Stop.  Think.
Listen to some good music, and just chill out.  The road to recovery from holiday woes is long and difficult, but thanks to my family and friends, is shortened with love.  */me smiles*

Post Photoshop

     Oh, most of my textures are self made, as I'm such a damned perfectionist, and like realism in my SL, and a lot of what is out there available is either crap, or too expensive.  It takes a lot of time (six hours alone, yesterday in Photoshop, just to get six or seven good Tiki/beach style textures done that I needed), but could possibly open up another avenue of income.  If nothing else, I'm also learning to use PS a bit more... um.... graciously.  (I.E.>  A lot less ..."How the fuck did I get that look last time, and why the hell can't I remember how now?"  ROFL!)

Photoshop fun! (I know, a recurring theme! LOL!)

Derren and I went on a nekkie boat cruise this morning.... heh... and this was the result.  No neener pics.... so get yer minds out of the gutter!

*Peace and Productivity*
