Hammered copper is a girl's best friend

Hello! I'm the lucky bitch with the rez day present jewelry, and I'm mean enough to show it all off! My purpose is two-fold actually. First, to thank the kindly people who made me stuff and gave me stuff, and second, to show off their artistry. I have talented friends, and I'm still not sure why they hang out with Miss "I can haz box!"

Tomoyuki Batra LBB LE Arachne Necklace. (Grin. Limited Edition, but he makes lovely things!)

My rez-day party last night was lovely, thanks to hyasynth (who helped organize it) and Heliotropic (who DJed). I worried that about three people would come, and it turned out to be lots more. If you didn't attend, why not, darnit?! (Not getting an invite isn't an excuse :D As if I was that organized :D.) Photos are over here in my Flickr account.

(Shiny Things) Mechanica necklace in gunmetal (thanks for the giftcards, Sakuradawnlei, Elric and Pip!)

We played an interesting party game last night. It was a series of questions that people answered, kind of like Vanity Fair's Proust questionnaire. Where do you see yourself in SL and RL in six months? -- that one garnered interesting responses, mostly "Be better at what I'm doing!" My own answer was, "make something more interesting than a box." Another good question was, what's the weirdest thing you've seen in SL? That question was difficult, but Elric "won" that one by responding, "Llama poop."

Black Opal Circlet by Ella (Tee hee. Ellantha Larsson isn't selling this yet -- thank you so much, woman! Get a vendor!)

Interesting how everyone chose jewelry that was delicate and filigreed as if perhaps that's my style! I'd buy that, given my love of Balderdash! (I was lucky bitch enough to get non-jewelry rez day presents too, and will thank everyone personally for those.)

*~*Illusions*~* Lataine Set with color changing metal (thanks so much Azazeal!)

Funny thing. IRL, I've gotten all of one birthday present. Somehow I don't feel bad at all now. It's interesting how the virtual life can be abundant when real life isn't...reminds me of Christianity's emphasis upon the "abundance of spirit." Since SL is entirely the manifestation of our brains, is it where we create our spirit? If so, my spirit is pretty materialistic...
