Allan Jeffries rant

Why oh why do I let Allan Jeffries get me so rattled? Ot and I had another fantastic set going but I started to shake the minute I saw him and Salena walk into the club. And I was fine until he tipped me 200L. So I told him I didn't want his tip and decided to return it double. But I was shaking so hard I typed the sentence in chat window instead of his IM window and typed 5400 in the pay box instead of 400! And of course he then asked if I had added up everything he had ever given ME. I just told him it was all I had (and it was, except for any incoming tips) and then muted him because I didn't want any more grief from him. And proceeded to dump him off my HUD! A little later Linri sent me 4400L from Allan, which I returned to her explaining that I had paid him 5400L and that I was sorry he had gotten her involved in our disagreement. And I AM sorry he involved her. Linri used to be a friend, in fact, I would like to think she is still a friend, but she and her co-owner dropped me a couple of months back.

So now I am kicking myself for my foolish pride that has caused me to be totally broke again. I work hard for my tips - I usually don't earn much for 2 hours dancing, but over a week I enough to pay for rent and for one or two new dances each week.

Oh, and in case you think I am a totally bad person, I unmuted Allan before I logged off for the night. I don't like to drop friends and I don't like to mute people. (Except for my period of total insanity once again caused by Allan.)

Now maybe I can sleep....

Where have all the the treehouses gone?

I don't spend a whole lot of time at my treehouse anymore: I build at Chania when I have some serious building to do, I dance at different clubs. I use the house primarily to change in, so I didn't notice until this morning that half the island is vacant! All the treehouses are gone, except mine. The owner recently erected a 4 story apartment building where a villa used to be. I feel like an endangered species. It reminds me of the Carly Simon song in which they paved Paradise and put up a parking lot. My friend Bridget helped me to find this place. She is a rental agent and we spent some time looking for a fantasy sim where my tree house would be welcome. I dread the thought of having to find another place to live.

This morning I went on a hunt for a St Patrick outfit that looked very cute in the pictures. The shop owner would have been pleased: it took me 90 minutes to find all 10 teeny-tiny shamrocks! The little shoulder rabbit and the scarf were in the subscribomatic, but the dress, hat, bangles, leggings and shoes were all in the little shamrocks. And I am wondering if I wasted my time - the only part I really like is the skirt: it has just the hint of a lacy black petticoat beneath (Tori are you listening)

Yesterday afternoon I went to Frank's (to read profiles, of course) and came across what I thought was the worst dressy outfit I had ever seen. I am sure the lady in question thought it the height of SL fashion - but I knew I had to share it with you all.
