30 Days of Gratitude - Day 1

I realised this morning that my last post, and only post, that wasn't relating to the colour challenge was a rant. In fact I haven't really had a very good time of things lately and I will admit that it was bringing me down. Then as I was looking through the blogs I follow I noticed that both Mayala and Guen have jumped on the challenge that is the 30 Days of Gratitude challenge, originally posted by Anubis Darkwatch. I found myself thinking, "Yea, I could use a bit of cheering up!" So I will be aiming to take part to... Time to start looking for the good things and stop worrying about the bad... 
So where to begin for my things for today, 
1) Photographing Crazy Ass Hair... I'm working on coverage for the upcoming Crazy Ass Hair Hunt that will be on Seraphim very soon. The hunt hasn't started yet, but I've been getting review copies and WOW some of the creations are AMAZING. It's so cool to see such imagination. 
2) Getting dressed in SL in LESS than an Hour... Normally it takes me forever to get dressed in SL! I put it down to the fact I have too many clothes that I don't want to wear right this second... TODAY it took me just under an hour for finding an outfit that rocks! 
3) Deciding to take part in THIS Blog Challenge... I know it sounds silly, but it is actually putting a smile on my face to stop and think about the things that have happened to me today, so for that this challenge get's credit as one of my 5 things today. 
4) Potato Wedges for Dinner... I'm making fish for dinner today, with a side helping of broccoli and some of my awesome potato wedges. They are Hell's favourites, but I will admit that I love them too. I put a little sunflower oil on them, season with garlic, paprika, salt and pepper, then chuck them in a hot oven for half hour and MMMMMM SO GOOD!
5) Dancing with Izzy... In a moment of randomness I switched the radio up loud and danced round to the Murderdolls. I love "Summertime Suicide" it is one of my favourite songs at the moment, and Izzy thought it was a game that I was dancing while cleaning, so she started to dance with me, it had me giggling and then she went bonkers and ran round the house like a crazy person... She is definitely something to be greatful for... She's my little princess! 
Just a little lookie at IzzyWhizzy, she's curled up with my favourite toy from when I was a kid. This is one soft toy she is not allowed to play with. Dogga normally sits on a shelf WAYYYYYY out of her reach, she likes to eat plushies!

Wanna see my PC fly?

***** WARNING - RANT!!!!! *****
I am getting to the point where if one more thing happens I will be allowing my PC to catch some serious air, maybe as I throw it out the window, or oooh how about taking a sledge hammer to it, I wont get the flying effect but it will be fun to watch it explode as I hit it... 
First my graphics card was an issue, I had so many problems with it back then that it meant I had to use three different computers to get any blogging of any kind done. Luckily, the fact that my birthday was just after I got home from the UK and my Dad being a lovely Daddy, meant that I was able to get myself a new graphics card. A card that I was assured would be brilliant for running a game like SL, I had hope the guy in the store would be right as he seemed to know SL and agreed with me when I said that it was somewhat of a "Computer Program Whore" sucking up all memory and controlling the graphics card like it was it's own personal bitch.I got home from my visit and HellBone installed it for me and WOW it was great... FOR ABOUT TWO DAYS! 
What happened next you ask? Well then one day randomly my whole PC just decided to restart itself, I was cussing like a sailor, luckily I hadn't had any programmes open that needed documents saving, which in itself was unusal as I usually have something open for Seraphim stuff, but I was pissed. When I eventually got back in things weren't working, Skype is a lifeline to me and that just wouldn't stop crashing. I tried a myriad of different things, including uninstalling and reinstalling, yet still NOTHING. I was furious. Hell looked into things in depth, turned out I had some virus that was in my PC and I wouldn't have known about it if my PC hadn't taken a complete nosedive into the abyss... So that meant we decided to reformat my entire PC. It's taken DAYS!!! 
Now I am back, things seem to be working O.K, I am slowly putting my programmes back and moving my files from Hell's PC to my own, but FIRESTORM WON'T INSTALL NOW! Everytime I try to download it, it works, until installation which tells me that the file isn't working properly... 
I am seriously getting to the end of my tether, I want to blow up my PC. Horrible fact is I rely on this machine for EVERYTHING, and that sucks... All my friends are in SL, All my job hunting has to be done online, All my photos are stored here and most of my contact with family and RL friends happens through this machine... Even if I wanted to blow my PC up, I couldn't do it, I am too dependant on this crappy piece of technology and ya know what, that kinda worries me. Won't stop me using it *logs into SL as I write this*, and you can never know when things might stop working, but from now on if ONE MORE THING happens I am gonna be a very unhappy Rudh... 
Sorry about the rant, I just needed somewhere to offload!!

52WOCC2 - Week 13

I will admit, that after the uninspiring Spice Girls picture I used last week for the colour challenge I was at a dead end. I had NO IDEA what I would do for this next colour, it's like all the blogging juice that I had to create interesting ideas seems to have been used up. This run on cold colours might be the reason... It's getting to spring and I am actually wanting to see more pinks and yellows, bright spring colours, the cold blue and green tones are just reminding me of winter... weird I know but that's how I roll!! Never thought I would see the day where I said I wanted to see pink come up either!!! The world has gone mad! 
This outfit was inspired by the hair though, once I put the hair on I knew I was going to have to do something with it, and I really quite like the way that it turned out! The hair was something I rediscovered, it was a hunt prize from a Crazy Ass Hair Hunt. These hunts, there were two of them, provided me with a collection of the weirdest hair to ever be seen on a person's head, and I can tell you that the Crazy Ass Hair Hunt is BACK at the end of March... I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED!!! 
Week 13 - Tea Green 
Week 13: A pooped fairy Rudh, tired from eating all those flowers!
What is she wearing; 
Hair: 3636 - Gardania
Skin: The Stringer Mausoleum - Pastel Skins
Make-up: Aura - Fan Girl, [ni.ju] - Kumi and Concrete Flowers - Liquid Paint Lips
Mouthie: la petite morte - mouth flower
Jewellery: Swallowtail Jewelry - Naturalist
Wings: Deviance - Rainbow Wings
Feet: Slink - Jolie Pied
Pose Prop: Olive Juice - Spring Fields

I managed to get that springtime feel into the picture, I guess the weather here at the moment is making me feel all springy... I love the flowers and I will be dragging Hell through the tulip fields here very soon... If you ever make the trip to Holland, try to come when the tulips are in flower in April/May, it is the most amazing sight to see endless fields that look like rainbow patchwork quilts. 
Next Week -Royal Purple

52WOCC2 - Week 12

I'm BACKKKKKKK!!!! Back from my visit to my parents, during which I was spoilt rotten and had such a great time that I was sad about coming home! Still you need to leave to be able to appreciate things like that, and I wouldn't have been so spoilt if I had lived there permanently again, so I guess the good has to go with the bad! Hell missed me and I think Izzy seemed to have too, she won't leave me alone now lol!
Still yesterday I was having a trawl through my massive inventory looking for something that would work for this colour. I will admit that it was something of a mad panic as I didn't want to miss out on posting today - so weird am I that it has to go up on the first day LOL! I do feel guilty that I haven't commented on people's posts from last week, I will try to at some point, I saw them but my mum's PC isn't really the best. Talking of PCs I HAVE A NEW GRAPHICS CARD YAYYYYY, my computer works well again, better than before!! SO AWESOME! Thank you Daddy!
Anyway, colour...
Week 12 - St.Patrick's Blue
Week 12: Ginger Spice with a Rudh Twist!
What is she wearing; 
Hair: Magika - Carla
Dress: [M.O.a.R] - Spangly UK Dress
Microphone: Embody - Microphone Prop
Boots: Little Britain - New Rock Gothic Boots

I will admit that I thought Luna had fallen off her rocker with this colour, I was thinking 'wait! Isn't St.Patrick's Day all about green?' Fledge tells me that it used to be blue, so I'll go with it lol, but as you can see I took a very patriotic route of a different country and ended up dancing round as Ginger Spice. I entered a talent show once on a school trip with some friends and we were the Spice Girls. I had to be Ginger Spice as I am a red head, but I wanted to be Scary Spice LOL I was not amused!!! 
Next week - Tea Green (very pale green!)

52WOCC2 - Week 11

What an apt colour for the month of March! This colour is a great one, and I wonder if it was planned... Aquamarine is the birthstone for March, I know that admitting I know this makes me sound like a loser but I am the daughter of a Jeweller with a Birthday in March, knowing the gemstone for the month kinda goes hand in hand with that. My mum never lets my dad forget that her birthstone is diamond, subtle hints but it comes up every year hehe, she's an April baby btw for those of you that were wondering about the diamond thing!
I seem to be getting kinda good at predicting colours too... My plane from last week is SO CLOSE to this colour LOL... Though who knows where we will end up next, Luna not included hehe...
Week 11 - Aquamarine
Week 11: About time I took my yearly bath hehe!
What is she wearing;
Hair: Gracile – Launderin Lilly
Mask: Ten Penny – Avocado Mask
Bathrobe: Leri Miles Designs  - Fuzzy Robe
Slippers: Intrigue Co – Unicorn Pajama Slippers
Duck: SHUSH – My Shower Towel and Rubber Duck Set
Bath Pose Prop: Glitterati – Bathtub
I will also give credit where credit is due to Nic... Honey it was you  who inspired me to try that delicious avodaco mask idea and although I don't have a shower I had to slap some on and jump in a bath with my new rubber duckie!!! 
Next Week - St.Patricks Blue (which seems to be a rather dark blue!!! Could be fun!!)

Your Tunes - Home!

It is the first time that I have done one of these posts in a while, I have been SO BUSY with Seraphim and then not having a decent computer to play with for any long period of time, when I don't have something else to do on the decent computer, I have let these interesting posts slip. TODAY I HAVE TIME OH MY GOD hehe!!!This song was perfect for the post that I wanted to create today too, for a couple of reasons...
Imma was instant with her choice of song. I forget now why she chose this one as her song of choice, but it fits well with something that I have been wanting to talk about for a while now and have just never gotten around to... Shame on me I know... I just get so busy! I do it to myself and I won't ever complain, but yeah I get busy... 
The photo for this song was easy to create. I wanted to use the fact that this song was about HOME, and it fits well that I am spending time at Home and able to show off the new place in SL that I can now call Home. 
It took a while for us to get the place we moved to sorted, Remus and HellBone worked their magic and the garden was transformed into a dark swamp with a million different things to see and always something new to spot when you moved your camera. My house was set up soon after the building started but then I took my sweet ass time in decorating and I don't think that I am even ready now... I wanted to make it look like a dolls house, or more to the point, like the wendy house that I had in my RL back garden as a child where I would spend long summer days pretending to be a fairy princess who made fantastical foods out of flower petals!! I loved that house! 
Just a few more pictures of the garden itself, we may have a land warming party at some point, getting HellBone and Remus online at the same time may be a bit of a mission though but you never know it could happen hehe!!!

52WOCC2 - Week 10

Can you believe it, TEN WEEKS ALREADY... only 42 Weeks now till Christmas LOL...
So anyway, keeping it short and sweet this week. I'm still having PC trouble, I'm working my blogging butt off on Seraphim as usual by pushing Hell off his PC whenever I get the chance and I will admit that I didn't really like this colour... It was something reminiscent of the brown phase we had in the last round and I swear if the food that this colour gets it's name from looked like this I sure as heck would not be eating it! Not a fan of Avocado really anyway but MAN that colour is GROSS!!!! 
Week 10 - Avocado
What is she wearing; 
Hat: Intrigue Co – Spinning Hat (No Longer Available!)
Hair: Ploom – Hoschie
Mini Planes: The Black Forest – Dogfight Planes
Goggles: BB Creations – Flight Goggles
Plane: AnnaMayaHouse – Carry-on Craft
Outfit: Worldwide Industries – SE Jumpsuit
Boots: Death Row Designs – Loose Boots

I am wearing the colour HONEST, just hid it behind some prettier colours as I REALLY don't like this colour... 
Next Week -Aquamarine
