i pimped my crib for xmas

I learned a new word today. “Cribtimonials” -- wanting whatever a celebrity has in his/her own home. Maybe if I become a ROC-city celebutante, I can get corporate sponsorship by infusing my friends with desire every time I open up my humble abode for another classy cocktail party. But right now my only Cribtimonals would be IKEA & the thrift store... huh. I can still throw the cocktail parties though.

This past Friday was one such occasion... I love a good party. And since I took the time and cash-money to pimp my apartment for Christmas, I thought I’d show it off. It’s supercute, full of adorable felt holiday paraphernalia and a red, gold, purple and green themed tree (I decided to be one of Those People who color coordinates their holiday decorating with their living room... please don’t hate me.) While fun for other people, I was a tad stressed through the whole night, to the point where I even got a bit snippy towards The Boy and one of my slightly obnoxious guests. O dear. In retrospect, I have assembled a brief list of things to prepare for next time to prevent these little lapses in hospitality.

1. Make easy to eat treats. I have this one down, but it’s always a good reminder. My favorites are anything involving crescent rolls (baked brie, lil cheddar cocktail weenies), childhood (chocolate chip cookies, rice krispie treats), or Mexico (guacamole, taquitos!). Classy, eh?

2. Assemble the music playlist at least one week in advance. This was my first cause of stress, as I a) had no holiday tunes b) used a playlist I’ve recycled from the past 5 billion parties. The Shins can be very depressing at 1 am.

3. Never, ever pit boys against girls while playing a board game (Taboo, in this instance). It gets violent and awkward, especially for the single ones and those with relationship drama.

4. Have paper towels nearby so spills are easy to clean up. That would have saved me a ton of scrubbing on Saturday. The Mystery Beer Scent still eludes me. I think it might be in the tree...

is two better than one?

Last night I joined Second Life. My name is Starkville March, if you ever see me wandering around.... And in case you want to jump on the bandwagon too, the whole signup process took about 5 minutes. Getting used to my new (superhot) second body is going to take wayyyyy longer.

After about 2.5 hours I finally mastered sitting, standing, walking without a drunken stumble, flying, and jumping. Occasionally I could pick up and move objects and talk to people. I even built a couple of completely pointless structures. Aww, if I had a mother in this game she would be so proud.

While getting a physical comprehension of the new world was a daunting task, even more difficult was coming up with this new alternate persona. Who is Starkville March? Provided with limitless options in hair, skin, eyes, clothes, body type, chin shape, and boob size, I instinctively set everything to my first life appearance. After 2 hours of building half-buried wooden donuts and blue chenille cubes, I decided to throw the reality thing out the window. I’ll become a new Starkville, with long brown hair and green eyes, maybe some tight plaid pants and a hot leather shirt. Ooooh..

It’s hard to change and be someone else on the screen, but I’ll give it go. After all, this thing is about a second life, and not re-living the one I have now. I have no Second Family, Second Job (yet) or Second Boyfriend, it is just me. All alone.

Scary.

The ball is rolling.
I am still trying to figure out what I want to write about on this thing, while at the same time praying no one reads it. I'm not really an opening-up online type of person, so this blogging thing is uneasy to me. I guess my purpose here is to understand the appeal-- I read other people's blogs all the time, but how do they come up with the motivation to write them? Hopefully, I'm about to find out.

From what I know about myself and what I like to share, I'll tell my so-called readers to expect cute things, tasty food, and random tidbits/questions. And maybe I can find some old friends. We all know I'm horrible at staying in touch, but maybe there's someone out there who still likes me enough to google my name.

And with that I conclude post 1 without ever having anything tremendous to say.
