I Miss Cazaluff


…animal loving…



…fun loving…

…but never immature…



…mild mannered…

…wouldn’t say boo to a goose… much less an ostrich…


Taco misses you too.

We miss you Diddi, come back and see us (-:

Cazaluff’s Comet

I went to visit Cazaluff with Blu and Hosanna and Logan. We stood there in amazement because Cazaluff was working in her yard. Blu said it was like a comet, they only come every hundred years or so and their appearance is brief and fleeting.

Brief and fleeting it was indeed, only a few minutes in fact and she was back to normal. Standing around drinking ginger beer.

Dog Bath Video

Some months ago Blu and Logan and Dad got together to make the LogSpark Dog Bath for VKC(TM) Dogs. Solcar did the animations, Blu designed the baths and created the themes and Logan and I wrote the scripts.

The bath comes in Small, Medium and Large to suit the sizes of the different Virtual Kennel Club dog breeds and features two and a half minutes of looped animation for each breed. There are nine themes that can be selected from the touch control menu and there are also controls that will allow you to fine tune your avatar’s position at the bath to get the most realistic look.

If you’d like one of these, you can get them from the LogSpark Dog Bath Store at the VKC Dog Park at Turing Isle. If you need two or more baths (so that you have the right size baths for your VKC Dog breeds) you can get a discount by buying the Twin Pack or the Fat Pack which contains all three.

St. Patrick’s Day 2010


And so it came to pass that it was time to gather together again and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.


St. Patrick’s real rez day was on March 17, but we couldn’t wait any longer and we had our party on the weekend before.


We were also celebrating the rez days for some of the Turing Isle residents who had been sick on their real rez days (or who are too retarded to remember when their rez day actually is). The celebratards were:

  • Blu Heron
  • SeaRose Charisma
  • Keiichi Ichtama
  • Solcar Amat – WTG Dad! You are THREE! (-:


So we had dancing…


…and green beer…
This is Logan and Me drinking green beer and Doolittle is waiting and hoping that we don’t guzzle it all.

This is Blu heron drinking green beer and behind her is Doolittle sleeping off his green beer and in the back ground is Dad who has a bellyache from drinking too much green beer already.
It’s always the same.


When Blu H said that Irish Ted was coming, I thought he was at least gonna be a bloke a with a fiddle and I was hoping for a whole band. Little was I expecting this.


But, looking on the positive side, we had Leprechauns too.
This is soddem gomorrer gonorr gonetomorrer beggaroh oh bugger it, this is Shaun the Leprechaun.

…and inevitably…


…there were monkeys…


I made a boo boo and I didn’t write down the name of this lady who was rockin’ out with her monkey. But, I think it’s Maharet Wrigglesworth. (And if I’m wrong, y’all will let me know, right?)

Blu and Rosanna are also in the photo. I’ll leave you to guess which one is which, though I should warn you that if you get it wrong, you’re probably dead.


And this is Whenever Timeless and Ishtar Roux …and monkeys


…and this is Paula Chunes, with green amber nectar …and a monkey.


From Left to Right: Blu Heron, Rosanna Himmel, Whenever Timeless, Diddi Cazalet, Ishtar Rox, Me, Logan, Hazey Big Bear, Keiichi Ichtami, two blokes I can’t remember, Blu Sparkle, Karys Aarde, Cephus Levee, Joachim Sicling, Love Kawaguichi.

…and <sigh> monkeys.




Cazaluff’s RL Rezday

Nobody actually knows how old Cazaluff is, we think it’s not as old as Logan but probably too big a number to be stored in an integer in many programming languages. Apparently she was rezzed in RL on 1st March but that’s a Monday this year and Cazaluff would be in school so we had the party on the Saturday before instead. You’re probably wondering why, if Cazaluff is so old, she will be in school on her birthday, unless of course she’s the teacher. I’m not sure I understand it either, but she’s definitely not the teacher, I’ve seen her in her uniform.


So anyway, it all started like this. Logan and I Gimped up a party invite…


and then Logan and Blu called up Blu Heron for catering, decorating and instigating…


and Blu called up Tone to come and play the Blues.

So, come the morning of the party (or the evening depending on where you live), Cazaluff and Logan are in the Dog Park hanging out and helping the visitors and Blu and Blu are in the courtyard getting prepared. Logan has already blown their cover in a careless IM, but Cazaluff is blissfully unaware…


Tone sends out a Group Announcement inviting all his fans to come to Cazaluff’s party and Cazaluff is still unaware (-:


Finally Logan puts out a call on the Tannoy and Cazaluff comes down to the courtyard to see what all the fuss is about. I don’t know what “Blimey!” is in Viking, but we think she probably said it.


But it doesn’t take her long to get her bearings and soon she’s rockin’ out in front of the stage.


Not long after that the party is in full swing and people are coming in from all over to congratulate Cazaluff and dance to the blues.


Blu and Rico rockin’…


Deborah Harry Jola Catnap cruisin’…


…and Dad groovin’.

It was around this time that the Miller Phone rang. It was John Travolta. He said he was making Night Fever 2010 and wanted to know if Dad would be in it. I took his number and said I’d call him back …maybe.


Doolittle’s dog’s eye view of the dance floor.
You can see a lot of our old mates here, Niju Zarco, Stormy Moonlight, Safra Nitely, Ishtar Roux, Roe Woodford, Benno Denimore, Love Kawaguichi, Joachim Sicling, FaithHopeLove Destiny.


Not only is Tone a Master of the Telecaster, he’s a Dobro Pro too.


Doolittle: Give me weed, whites and wine!
Celestria Henly: Blimey!
Doolittle: and I’ll be Willing…

Yep, Lowell George was da man for sure.


After a bit of yelling from me, out came the stratocaster and Tone said, “I’m gonna play this song for Miller… ”
Shake Your Money Maker! – Hoooooooooo!


I thought it was all over after that, but no, Tone kept right on playing. Here’s a drunk’s eye view for those of you that were a little the worse for wear.


From left to right, those left standing at the end were: Blu Heron, Keiichi Ichtama, Celestria Henly, Tone Uriza, Diddi Cazalet, Sandry Logan, Paula Chunes, Blu Sparkle, Tanya Matahari, Solcar Amat.


Happy Birthday Cazaluff!!!



Later on when Cazaluff was opening her presents, we spotted Doolittle trying out his telekinesis skills on a left over glass of beer. As far as we know, he still needs more practice.


So… if you don’t know any girls that live upon hills and you need an introduction to one, or maybe to her sister… call Tone Uriza. He knows all of them.
Leastways, go see him play. He’s the greatest (-:







From left to right: Blu Sparkle, Diddi Cazalet, Ebi Ebi and Alexja Xue doing the arthritic zombie cheeseburger munch.


The Virtual Kennel Club dogs giving it some “I can has Cheezeburger too?”


Dad: “Don’t you be looking at ma cheeezeburger boy!”

Isle of Dogs

You know that place that I said I wasn’t allowed to talk about and take pictures of? (Not the one with the dancing girls and the poles, the other one, you know… the secret one?) Well, now it is not a secret.


First came the announcement from Enrico…

…me and Logan then made another one for the people on Turing Isle in the Dog Park so they would know to come too. (Actually we made that one just because we can. Logan likes sending messages to the estate and she likes hollering. Simple pleasures, eh?)

So then you press OK and you go out through the Vavoom! store and get onto the bridge, and go slowly so that you don’t fall into the water between the sims.

and oh… who’s this? It’s Dad wandering around aimlessly. He looks like a bloody tourist.

Meanwhile up in the new Plaza…

Rico is waiting for the people to come and looking apprehensive…

…Blu is busy making a few last minute adjustments…

and on the little deck by the waterside, the gulls are waiting for someone to come and feed them. But, it won’t be me I can tell you, the last time I got near the gulls, one of them stole my chips. I’m not having that happen again, chips I can bear but I don’t wanna lose a Frankenbabyburger to them. They just gobble up anything in sight, so they wouldn’t appreciate good quality fare like that.

Logan’s Birthday

23rd December is Logan’s birthday. Estimates vary as to her real age from 46 years old to 152 years old. We all know that she lies about her age, but that’s ridiculous. But, totally unperturbed by the age anomaly, Blu Sparkle and Blu Heron organised a party for her and a load of our mates* came over to dance in the park.

Blu Sparkle

Blu Heron

Diddi Cazalet

Solcar Amat (Dad)

Enrico Genosse

(…who really knows how to rock out…)

Rosanna Himmel

Me, rocking out with Logan and Rico

Ebi Ebi

Everyone rocking out and kicking the balloons around

This one is our mate Pell Smith who is the very talented bassoon player in the Fontana Orchestra,

…but look again at how he is not in the snow… that’s not because he is in Japan and there wasn’t any snow (there might have been, I don’t know) but Pell was here in Second Life with us. So what happened? Well… Blu just happened to make a new island appear from beneath the waves… like magic. Look!

…but she named the island wrong, it should have been Isle of Miller.

Oh, if you are wondering what that little symbol means, it says:
No pushing anyone over so that they fall down and bruise their arse.

…so anyway we just moved the party to the new island and carried right on with more dancing…

…and balloons…

…and dogs…

…and cars…

…and Rosanna’s aeroplane (but everyone was too scared to go in that)…

…and horses**…

…and then we ate cake.. me and Logan ate lots of cake…

…and did the Onigokko…

…and generally made a mess…

*None of the people that I invited could come, they all said that they were dancing elsewhere and needed the money from the tips. Everyone that could come thought that this was probably a blessing.
