So so busyand thus I apoligize, yet again, on neglecting my little forum here.
GSC is thriving and the number of applications I receive daily from girls wanting to work there is daunting. We have made Some special additions to our family which add more variety and flavor to the most discriminating of tastes. The expected "slow down" hasn't really slowed me down at all and I have been as busy as ever, so I have little to complain about....other than well, the use of ZOMBIES...or alts to falsely manufacture traffick on sims.
This seems to be getting way out of control. People using 50, 75 or even 100 alt accounts to make their traffick numbers look desirable so they can charge people to rent shop space for essentially non-existant traffick. I am not a huge fan of greater regulations in SL but I believe LL needs to look into this, while it may not violate the terms of service what about their policy on use of alt accounts and misleading practices?
Some on sent me this picture..
showing how some will even attempt to drown their poor litle zombies. It would be funny, were it not for the fact that they use these inflated numbers to trick people into renting from them..
Meanwhile working out the kinks in the new SL viewer having to reset all my preferences so I will get half-way decent performance and yet good quality from it.
I hope to show off next blog my fashion fixation...the seach for decent looking non prim skirts.
I have manage to scrounge up a few...the first so generously provided by a brilliant designer free of charge even though it was a special request..a beautiful little creation that looks so sweet. Since then i have been foraging SL for others and I know have a few, while they are not yet my ideal they are still very nice and save worries on unexpected detaching of clothing.
I will try and find the time to get a few pics to show off my little treasures.
Okay...I had to throw this in...I am still playing with my photo editing tools and some people have commented on the nice job and i have even gotten some requests to do their profile pics. If I could find the time...

Just a quick note as I have been a neglectful blogger. Holidays have had me very busy and much to be done in SL as well. Exams and work as well as holiday shopping taking much time so when not busy as a little bee in SL, ther is much to do besides blogging.
The School is doing exceptionally well, to the point that I can scarcely keep up with the flood of applications we get every day from girls wanting to escort at one of the most fun places in SL you can work. This could also account for the dreary hanging on by some former employees that cast themselves out but cant let go and keep popping up to lurk about hoping for a pittance of attention they they must not be getting in their new pursuits. While this use to infuriate me, now it just depresses me that these pathetic people are so unhappy with the choices they have made but cant admit their mistakes. They even go so far as to send an occasional trouble maker to us. I guess they are so bored they think thats amusing. The greatest sadness in this is theyre efforts are not even as bothersome as a stubbed toe.
More importantly we have made some fantastic additions to our fabulous line up of beautiful and talented escorts. I have been receiving great support from all the girls, which I do so appreciate.
So while there are considerable slow downs in other places we continue to thrive. If I could control my shopping addiction and philanthropy, I would be very very wealthy by SL standards, even with some of my more well to do clients being very tied up in rl holidays and some rl economic slow downs. However that has never been the goal of Sl for me and the more people that are having fun, the more fun it is for me.
Business is steady, but more importantly we are having a blast. Spent most of last night with a group of the girls in an impromptu cheerleading practice. About 8 of us have picked up matching cheer uniforms and with my expert choreography whe went through some very hot routines. We we having so much fun laughing about our considerable precision moves. I was laughing the entire time.
So SL is good!!!!

I know, I know.....It has been a while since my last post. All I can say is it has been one weird week.
Second Life does some strange things to people if they let it and the victims of some of it's craziness flew across my path on their way to the cuckoo's nest.
Some, were those that are apparently finding their new enterprises so boring and unsatisfying that they want to come back and loiter around the yard, supposedly too rapped up in their IMs to talk to anyone there, although their excuse for being their in the first place, is to visit "old friends". Well here's a flash if they aren't there or online...duh!!!! Move along. There are no more fan clubs thinking you are wonderful anymore. You've shown yourselves for who you are and just because someone has tolerated you that does not equal them respecting or even particularly liking what you have done.
The worse offenders coming back to haunt and still thinking they are so important or impressive that they can be rude, mouthy and openly disrespectful of the people that have worked so hard to make our little place one of the hottest little escort services. Sorry that will not be tolerated.
It does amaze me that some people are so clueless.
Some, have come, reaped the benefits of working with us or just visiting enjoying the company, hanging out and supposedly making friends. Then they got greedy and think, hey I can do this!!
So they try and start up some competing service, masking it thinly in some cases other blantent copycats, then when they fail miserably, which each has, they come crawling back and wonder why they aren't just immediatley welcomed back.
Maybe I can simplify it for all these clueless people in one phrase. Trust is earned!!!!!
The same can be said for respect. So when you come slithering back to GSC, after betraying the people that took you in, befriended you and cared about you, don't expect to be immediatley welcomed. You might never be welcomed back. But, if that is what you want, you better work like hell to try and EARN IT. You gave it up.
Liars, misleaders, deceivers, cons, attention seekers, interlopers, freelancers and cheaters bewarned. You shall reap what you have sown and there is no point whining, complaining and moaning about how unfair it is or how misunderstood you are. Accept responsibilty for how you have screwed things up and work to fix them or go away ...for good.
Sheeesh...I'm tired and ranting. I haven't even gotten around to friend(s) and former customers going mental. I need to save that for when I am better rested and more coherent.
Till then, suck it up and take a pixel prozac!!!

Just me dancing in an adorable outfit I picked up free in one of the shops I keep an eye on. I've gotten so many compliments on it and they are stunned when I tell them its a freebie.
So do not scoff at all freebie shops or giveaways!
I had a busy but successful day/night. It started off with a hugely successful gender bender party at the school. We had a large fun crowd in for it and the guys looked so funny (they were wonderful great sports getting into the spirit of the party) and they got gushing attention from the girls, some teasing but it was all in good fun. I was laughing so hard and some points, I couldn't see through the tears. Most a couple of my good friends were there which always picks up my mood too. Most importantly, everyone seemed to have a good time.
Did a little *business* afterwards and that proved, quite *rewarding*. When customers insist on paying me over my normal rates, well lets just say I make darned sure they are not disappointed *winks*.

Yes dear readers, not only am I a mild mannered escort and hostess in SL I am a crime fighter!!
While out pursuing one of my passions, super bargain buys, I ran across a vendor selling stolen, hair and skins from some of my favorite shops, Laqroki, Deviant Kitties, Magika, Cake, Redgrave and others I didnt recognize.
Some other keen eyed fashion connoisseurs spotted these stolen items immediately (okay it wasn't really that hard, the person was really stupid and didn't even change the name of a couple of the items-the git) and we jumped into action. IMing the and sending note cards out to the owners and representitives of the shops being stolen from and informing anyone that stumbled in of the theft going on.
I have to say I was most gratified to find that everyone that came by was as outraged and disgusted with this silly twit's actions.
So beware copybotter's, thieves and cheaters out there there are masses of honest persons ready to turn you in, report you and hound you!!!!
Then the very next day, as I was milling about another favorite shop of some fine skins, I've grown attached too also, waiting and anticipating the new relases of a serious of skins I'm dying to try.
While chatting with one of the models and shop assistants I decided to try on a couple of skins just to see what they looked like. I bought the demo, but to my surprise when I put it on, it was no demo at all, but the actual skin all for 1L!!!!
Of course I immediately let the assistant know and sent a notecard to the shop owner, offering to pay the full price (I know but as I did rather like the look and may use it-I felt I had to make the offer).
Maybe this will give you a bit more of an insight to what I am about.
My first instinct is to treat everyone with fairness and respect. Overall, this has served me well.
I have a very comfortable and beautiful SL home, a couple of side skyboxes for other diversions (more on those later *wink*), I can buy most anything I want in SL when I want it, but more importantly, I have a number of wonderful friends.
One of my dearest friends and partner in primwhoring have plans for our own full sim to build the most gorgeous sim SL has every seen. The Holy Thorn we had created, that everyone raved about how lovely it was, serving as only the rough draft.
I am still around just been busy.
Okay does anyone else get the overwhelming compulsion that things will not rez in a shop unless they are actually looking at the screen?
Fist it was the mesh clothing. Then the mesh hair. Then the mesh body. Now I finally broke down and got the mesh head. I am having mixed fe...
Okay this may be another dumb thing about Second Life I do, but I don't feel right with the warmer clothes even in SL until fall even th...
