I keep stalling, keeping me together

I blame Edward for this.

The Roguish Pirate
9% Swashbuckling Engineer, 15% Crazy Clockwork Tinkerer, 27% Charming Noble, 50% Roguish Pirate, 0% Mechanical Fian, and 42% Aetherist Bodger!
There is treasure on those airships flying back from the Imperial colonies, and you can be found wherever there is treasure. Sometimes you don’t know what you prefer, having the loot or getting the loot. You have your own crew of engineers, bodgers, tinkerers and fians to keep your airship fast and powerful. Those lumbering cargo ships can’t withstand your assault after you fire off the grappling hooks. Oh, there is always a fight, but that is part of the fun.

Hee. And the next one:

The Explorer
29% Elegant, 45% Technological, 43% Historical, 52% Adventurous and 34% Playful!
You are the Explorer, the embodiment of steampunk’s adventuring spirit. For you, clothing should be rugged and reliable, and just as functional as it is attractive. You probably prefer khaki or leather, and your accessories are as likely to include weapons as technological gizmos. You probably wear boots and gloves, and maybe a pith helmet. Most of what you wear is functional, and if you happen to wear goggles people had better believe that you use them. In addition to Victorian exploration gear, your outfit probably includes little knickknacks from your various travels. Above all, you are a charming blend of rugged Victorian daring and exotic curiosity.

Well, then.

Take the Steampunk Archetype Test if you want. Or the Steampunk Style Test.

Now, to other business.


(Someone needs to show me how to make black lights in SL! Because I saw this over at Gritty Kitty on the CSR run, and I have to have this!)

I'm going to try to get in at least an hour of fighting with the giant crane of doom today. I still want one avatar from there, and I haven't even begun to complete the one I'll have to assemble from various snatched parts. With any luck, I'll be able to acquire--or swap for--the Amenouzume avatar I still want.


(Carmen finds an innovative way to carry her four stamp cards for CSR. This was taken over at Le Petite Prince, a marvelous place for steampunk fripperies and biomechanical additions, among other things.)

And I have design ideas piling up that I need to get to. I don't know when I'll find the time, and I'm still working on finishing up the ones I've got in progress. It's becoming somewhat insane.


(Over at Kurotsubaki, watching the shadow of the bunny.)

And we've finally decided we want an update group. When Mr. Allen finishes up the design for the group logo, we'll be forming one. I'm wincing slightly at this--yet another group I can't leave--but I think it will be good for the business.

When it's created, there will be an announcement on the shop blog.



What? It's true.

Oh Pirate sign for the Win!

Yes, I'm rather fond of that one.

And it's so true--ninjas? Do not have wenches.

Oh and the pirate?

That man does not lack ego. Reminds me of a couple friends of mine. Hee!
