The defection of the enlightened handmade nutcrackers caused the sweepstake officials to feel even queasier than they did during the magnificently handled botulism scare of '06, during which the extent of what they would need to amputate was found to be favorable.
I was with bekkers for a bit last night. Actually mistress was with her and I just watched. Mistress has a knack for this mistressing thing. Bekkers was defiant at first but is at this point is about as compliant and meek as you could imagine, which isn't much of a surprise really given her plight.
I'm not sure what she did but she must have done something inspirational. I've never seen Mistress treat someone so coldly as she is treating poor bekkers.
I finally got to talk with another prospective slave that Mistress is considering. Her name is Tapegirl and Mistress and I already have a nickname for her. She seems nice but is more of a bekkers than she is a gackt.

This was one of those crashes where you don't realize it as first. You just keep typing and typing and typing and the you are so impressed that the person you're talking to has such good listening skills. And then you wait for a reply or try to move and... nothing.
I guess I really can't blame SL this time. Apparently our cable went out and took SL with it. I seem to be back on now so Jan... come on back. Jan? JAN! Come back here this instant!
Well a little Jan is far preferable to no Jan. I stayed and won a few more Lindens while I waited for Mistress.

She was of course very understanding but when she boiled it down, it really did look like I had a lot of time to do not a lot of things for her. I tried to explain briefly why I hadn't finished everything and she replied with this:
"...the OTHER thing I really hate? oh maybe I should start numbering them.... stupid people.... repeating myself.... and excuses"
You really need to know her better to get an idea of the way this was presented and you need to know my and my relationship with her to know how I took it. I am sure that an outsider would see that and think 'What a meanie!" I look at it as very useful and valuable information.
I am glad she shared that with me but a bit disappointed with myself that she HAD to share it.
Mistress did a 20 questions things in reverse.
She said this...
[1:10] Jacquelin Mazi nods: "So I got something today.... that directly relates to my gackty one"
... and then took forever to finally tell me what it was.
[1:10] Emilee Gackt: Yes Mistress?[1:10] Jacquelin Mazi: oh? you are curious? do you remember your gorean training at all?[1:11] Emilee Gackt lowers her eyes. "This girl has forgotten how that trait is so unbecoming in a kajira Mistress. This girl apologizes and begs to be fed bugs for a month."
When she finally told me I was awash with feelings. She got a book(s?) on hypnotism. A friend told me about SL hypnotism long ago. I am kind of scared, kind of excited, nervous for sure but mostly curious. Add skeptical to the list too. It is nice that Mistress and I share the trust that makes things like this workable for us.
(By the way, she didn't feed me bugs.)

Bekkers was online when I came on this morning. She is a bit extreme. I'm not sure it was 100% her choice to have all this happen to her. I have a feeling that it wasn't, at least not how things have ended up. Lucky for her she seems to like things to be overdone like that. At least I think she does. Too late for her if she doesn't I guess.
Sparing the gory details, she is in a cage and can't move, see or hear. What a life she has. At this point it sounds oddly compelling to me. She has no freedoms at all but also has no worries, no headaches, no responsibilities...
Oh well. Back to RL.
We talked for a long time and the main thing that stuck with me was how self-centered I can be. I hate that about myself. I have more than anyone could ever want, let alone NEED and still I get so caught up in what I want and need. Sheesh.
Dina logged in for a bit but was AFK by the time Rachelle and I were done. Next time Dina?

You want to know EVERYTHING that I know about Mistress? I don’t think so. I WILL give you a good idea of what makes Mistress tick, but I can’t share all that I know about her. Too much of what I know of her was learned and shared with me over months of building trust and getting to know her quite intimately. Let me emphasize that when I say ‘intimately’ I don’t mean to imply ‘sexually.’ We share something very unique and deep, regardless of what may or may not have taken place between us physically. I feel like there are some things in our relationship that are ‘ours’ and private to us, just like they would be between any two people.
Mistress has a set of expectations and rules for me. She has created them based on who I am and what she has learned about me. What applies to me, the things I have to endure and get to enjoy and the things that are true of me won’t necessarily apply to anyone else that she accepts as a slave. Each is a unique person with unique interests, passions and hates. I used to like being punished in a way; it used to be a challenge and something to deal with and overcome. Now I hate being punished, mostly because I hate disappointing Mistress but also because I know that the punishment will suck. One of the first things Mistress taught me is that sometimes it sucks to be a slave. I have found that it REALLY sucks to be a disobedient slave, especially one that belongs to her.
I have finally learned that Mistress dislikes repeating herself. I had been told this a number of times but sometimes it takes some repetition for things to sink in to my gackty brain. Each time I forgot this, I paid for it with an increasingly unpleasant punishment, which is the next point that someone needs to know about Mistress.
Mistress doesn’t use ‘fun’ punishments – the kind that really just spoil someone instead of causing regret; hers really suck. I gave her my list of likes and dislikes just like most people do with dominants in SL. Other doms would use the things marked as 4s and 5s as punishments, which is just the opposite of what really ought to be done. A punishment should be unpleasant and Mistress is as skilled at causing regret as she is at making me utterly happy.
She has high standards for me. Again, what applies to me might not apply to another but she expects that me wear a fresh, tidy outfit each day and not wear the same thing two days in a row. In SL, the way I dress and the clothes that I wear must be chosen to reflect her tastes and not mine. She prefers the things that I wear to be tasteful and have a bit of class rather than what most subs and slaves tend to wear in SL. She expects my appearance and manners to be impeccable.
She expects me to be as near to perfection as I can get. When I type, I must correct any errors that I make, and always use proper grammar and spelling. Mistress will not tolerate profanity or vulgarity from me and expects me to be gracious at all times.
Mistress is more understanding and patient with RL issues than she might seem and I too easily forget that about her. She would much rather have me share any problems with her than have me struggling unnecessarily to follow a rule or complete an assignment, or worse, do something poorly.
She owns all of me in SL; my time, my profile, my groups, my friends list… everything. She owns how I dress and how I look. She owns the other accounts that I used to have and she owns what I can do with my Lindens.
I have found Mistress to be utterly qualified to be a dominant, not because of her past so much, but because she is excellent at the business of Mistressing. She is smart, clever, creative and very consistent with me. To her, a rule is a rule and when I have asked for exceptions (other than for some RL reason), her answer is always no. I have had to learn to deal with life as it is, with my rules as they are.
Mistress has a few superpowers and I am not sure of the source. She might be from that island where Wonder Woman came from but again, I am not sure. Mistress knows when she is being lied to and I won’t test her on that again. She has a super secret method of finding alts and found a few accounts that I told her that I didn’t have. I wish that people knew to heed her warnings about being honest with her; they will deeply regret if they don’t.
I can’t really say much about how I would change Mistress or what I don’t like about her. I have a few reasons for that. I have learned to love her as she is and I don’t see faults in her as much as I see traits. It will never be my place to criticize her and I don’t want to imagine what might happen if I did.
She constantly keeps me guessing. I never know what to expect or what I might be punished for. There is ALWAYS something that I have done that might be punishment-worthy – even just mistakes in typing – and it is Mistress’ right and entirely proper for her to punish me for each mistake I make. I am constantly dealing with the fear that some little mistake will be called out and I will be punished for something minor. Most people might see this as extreme, but to me it is part of the exquisite whole. I have sometimes felt like her punishments were too severe but how should I know too severe from not severe enough? I am just a slave. She is the Mistress and she gets to decide what is best for me.
One thing that I would change (and this is not about her per se) if I could is some of the times that we are online together. We spend a good bit of time together during the day but there are many nights when she logs in at indecently late hours and it has become a habit for me to login late at night to wait for her. I like meeting her so late; it is fun to have these all night meetings with her but it is sometimes hard for me the next day. I had an idea about that recently… it is one more way Mistress keeps herself in my head. If I am tired all the next day after an evening with her, I will remember all day why I am so tired.
She used to talk about having to brainwash me. It was either unnecessary or she has succeeded perfectly. I can’t imagine either of my ‘lifes’ without her – Second Life OR real life. She is a perfect contrast... like dark chocolate and red wine.

me haven't seen Mistress for a few days but me saw Jan for a bit last night before SL crashed us both. She got back in for a few minutes but me couldn't.
She was so sweet talking mevanese with me. A bit more practice and me and Jan will both be fluent.

me asked Mistress if me could start getting an allowance (me was joking when me asked, but still hopeful). Her answer to me:
[9:02] Jacquelin Mazi: LEHLON - the answer to your question
[9:03] Emilee Gackt smiles. "If me unscramble that do me get a Linden Mistress?"
[9:03] Jacquelin Mazi: tick tock.....
[9:04] You: me feels in might be 'Hell no' Mistress.
[9:04] Jacquelin Mazi: Congratulations Emilee Gackt, you have won this round in 45 seconds.
[9:05] Emilee Gackt smiles. " me usually only gets one Linden Mistress. Did you mean to send $18L?"
[9:05] Jacquelin Mazi: yes lil gackty one.... you have earned $18 L
No allowance, but a minor windfall; me have $518L now!
Mistress took me to a latex store to look at some things she needed for someone else. We saw this really brutal contraption that me remember going from a pierce in the nose to a pierce in the lip and it had a post in between to keep the wearer's mouth open. me remember seeing a few other piercing-related things there.
Mistress sent me home and told me to wait while she went and got something she needed. Before she left though she said something about having me pierced. me was... interested in what Mistress had in mind.
What ME had in mind were all the terrible things me had just seen at the shop we had been at.
When Mistress finally came home she did pierce me but only after a bit of torment and all sorts of insinuations about where me'd be peirced and what me'd be pierced with.
Mistress isn't really so bad; in fact me like her quite a lot.
This will make it hard for me to wear skirts, but not impossible; me will have to find another place to attach them for now.
me found a loophole in my new speech mode. If me just type a random 'me' at the end of a sentence that doesn't include the 'I' word (that's a hard word to abbreviate), me have technically done nothing wrong. me will give an example:
Newbies need a lot of help, me.
me am quite sure this loophole will be very short-lived.
Ways me spelled 'pierce' in this blog:
me saw Razian for a bit tonight and me got zapped twice in 15 minutes. me need more practice with this if me am going to ever get it right.
Having IMs turned off is so easy for me to forget, even from one minute to the next. It is such a deeply ingrained habit to click that IM button and it is SO easy to forget not to. And it is SO embarrassing to get that message back:
[0:28] Emilee Gackt: *** IM blocked by sender's viewer
[0:28] Second LifeSecond Life: *** IM blocked by your viewer
I once replied to a group IM when I was blocked. THAT was embarrassing! It was the Obama for President group and once that message went to the ENTIRE group, there was a flurry of IMs from people wondering why I was blocked from IM and if I knew I was blocked, well then why on earth would I reply to a group IM?
That was a good question. I still have no real good answer.
Being blocked from IM makes SL a bit solitary but Jan and I are close enough that I could just appear in her house unannounced and not cause a stir. Otherwise, for more public places there is always the dreaded chat box.
It is part two of the punishment that is so... I am still at a loss about what word to use for it. This is the most personal punishment Mistress has come up with yet. It is embarrassing and I am sure Jan would say it is demeaning, but it is a really very unique way for Mistress to stay in my thoughts. Every sentence I speak, I think of her. It is impossible not to.
It's that juxtaposition that makes this punishment so clever. I hate it, I sound completely ridiculous and with every word, I think of Mistress and so I love it and I try to make the verb agree with the noun in each sentence I type, just so it is as close to proper English as I can make it.
Mistress has this mantra, slogan, jingle, motto, etc. that she likes. She says 'Sometimes it sucks to be a slave.' It doesn't suck right now really. I am happy with her and happy with Jan. I am busy with all the things Mistress has given me to do, but I wouldn't say it sucks at all. Not that I am disagreeing with Mistress of course! If she says it sucks, then it sucks, no questions asked.

Jan gets up at 2 or 3 am just to see if I am online. What a loving sacrifice that is. She told me that she does it and the Mistress does basically the same thing - staying up until some ungodly hour just to be with me.
I am quite blessed aren't I?
I was out of place to say that. It isn't MY decision at all. I can offer input, feelings, intuition but no decisions.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
It's not in drafts either. Just gone.
My addendum to a previous post is there, just not my post from earlier today which I did just after the addendum.
I had a problem when blogger would try to autosave what I had already typed; it displayed some error so quick-on-her-feet Emilee Gackt pasted all of it into Word and typed it up there, then pasted it back into blogger. Once I confirmed that it was there (via the 'View Blog' button) I deleted the Word doc. Oy!
I talked to Jan tonight. She wasn't entirely pleased about my predicament in SL because she loves me. It was a lovely conversation and she is no closer to 'getting it' but might be closer to getting that these things are OK with me.
Wednesday, September 17, 2008
I can’t find any loopholes on this one either so I guess we could call this a warning, an FYI, or a heads up.
Until further notice, each sentence that I utter, mutter, whisper, shout, speak or say must not include the word ‘I’ as in ‘I’m sorry Mistress’ but it MUST include the word ‘me.’
I can emote but if I do, the sentence must still have the word ‘me and not ‘I.’ the /me doesn't count.
Oh – the 'me' must be in lower case too.
I can’t talk like a normal person in IM either. That’s been turned off for now.
Ponder that a moment. Every sentence must include the word ‘me’ but not ‘I.’ If it doesn’t I get zapped.
After today I’ve pretty much had enough of being zapped.
She gave me the option of blogging that way or not. That last sentence would have been zappless.
It’s trickier than it sounds. Most of the time today when I would type anything I would switch to emoting grammar. I wasn’t emoting but it is so deeply entrenched as a habit to change the grammar of a sentence from 1st person to 3rd person when I start it with that /me.
Me am not looking forward to this. me will feel ridiculous. In fact, me already do.
Me know me will get zapped some more. me say ugh!
I forgot the most important part of all this. Mistress doesn't like repeating herself and gives me rules for a reason. If I have a problem with following any of them she is certainly reasonable enough to listen to what I have to say. I just didn't say anything.
Woohoo! I'm at $500L!!! Thank you Jan.
I made almost $100L there just today but there is so much information constantly popping up in chat so it's almost like I really EARNED those Lindens.
Speaking of Jan, I was with her tonight when my computer suffered its latest breakdown. About every month it just blows up and won't reboot. I get all sorts of errors and such but so far the only cure I have found for it is just leaving for a while and thinking happy thoughts about it.
Voila... I'm back!
Jan and I were shopping again when I poofed. She seemed to be in gift mode again. She is sweet thing and a wonderful friend.

If it did, *LEHMAN BROTHERS* how could I tell if *GAS PRICES* I was actually getting more traffic?
Hmm... I'll have to try that someday.
[14:46] Papp's NumCrypt v0.03: (1l$) current crypto: AB x CBC = BDC + ABE + BDCEE = BDFAC Clues: E=0, D=2, C=4
[14:46] You: 12034
[14:47] Papp's NumCrypt v0.03: no one solved this calculation: 31 x 414 = 124 + 310 + 12400 = 12834
All that work and the MOST I can get is 1 (ONE?) Linden? Sheesh. I'll stick with Scramble.
Sometimes they are just TOO easy:
[14:50] Scramble Club V1.3: MNAHOY (n.) One who navigates a hoy.
[14:50] You: hoyman
[14:50] Scramble Club V1.3: Congratulations Emilee Gackt just won L$1 playing Scramble! The word was 'HOYMAN'.
In the next episode, we'll learn what a hoy is and why it needs navigating.
I was with Mistress this morning. How lucky I am to have such a flexible schedule. She got an IM from another potential slave and I was once again thoroughly impressed by her patience and kindess. She has given the SAME speech and asked the SAME questions dozens of time and is still polite and respectful to everyone she meets, each of whom wants the exact same thing from her.
Oh my goodness! Jan was right about the cat at this Scramble place. I need a huge mallet to flatten this thing!
Anyway... I feel such a burden when Mistress tells these potentials that they need to impress me. ME?
A. I am too easily impressed
B. ME? Why me?
C. How come I can't just mind my own business and do my assignments and have fun? Why do I have to make decisions that will affect other people? **See below.
D. Of course I know the answer to that... it is the same as the answer to ANY SL question. Because Mistress wants it that way.
If I touch one of those 'Touch to find your height' things and I get no result... do I exist?
This is nice... I found a spybot in the house today. Thank goodness it was the SL house and not the RL house. What a creepy thing to do or even just to make. It hasn't been there long so the creepy scumbag (Peter Frampton) who did it is going to get an abuse report.
Rain (she is the landlord of maison de gackt) came by and removed it. It turns out that Peter Frampton was her ex-partner from SL and he was spying on her, not me. According to Rain he left SL long ago. This used to be their house and she believes that he put it in to spy on her when they shared the house.
[15:41] Rain Coalcliff: ...he was the one that ran around , not me
[15:41] You: Well good riddance then
[15:41] Rain Coalcliff: I never ever did but he did...lol
[15:41] Rain Coalcliff: it is the guilty ones who are suspicious
[15:41] Emilee Gackt nods and looks around suspiciously.
[15:42] You: Thanks for de-bugging the place.
I checked Pete's last login and it looks like it must have been at least... oh gosh MINUTES since he was here last. He was online at some point on 9/15/08.
The gackty mind reels... was Peter REALLY Rain's partner? Did her spy on her? Are Peter and Rain the same person? Was Rain spying on Peter? If so, wouldn't it have been easier to just get a mirror? Can you legally partner yourself in SL? Am I really so gullible to believe all this? Is the word gullible really not in the dictionary?
** ADDENDUM: Is it the place of a mere slave to make decsions? It isn't. Is it the place of a slave to give her Mistress her feeling and insights about someone of something? Absolutely.
Of course Jan logged in when I was blocked from talking to her but she logged in just to say that she was feeling sick. So I missed her but I would have missed her anyway, sort of. In any case, get well soon Jan. The best kind of sickness to get is the kind you get from your honey.
Mistress and I spent a bit of time tonight but she and Bekkers had some things to discuss. It seems like she (Bekkers) is beginning to soften a bit. If she's smart she'll KEEP softening.

He gave me a free table fountain.
Here is what bothers me about this:
- How did he get my name?
- Why did he spell it wrong?
- Has he not heard the bit of SL wisdom that I overheard once? 'Never trust anyone with a number in his name.'
- It reminded me of the flower incident.
The flower incident, in 2500 words or less:
I met a man in SL (I don't recall exactly where) and we hit it off. He didn't seem to be overtly interested in sex and had a good sense of humor. We chatted for a long time that seemed like such a shorter time, which is always nice. We eventually made plans to go to his SL home. It wasn't discussed but we were both looking forward to how things might progress.
Just as we were about to leave he gave me something that was labelled 'A Flower for Your Hair.' I did a slight RL eye-roll, but in SL, I told him I was touched. I felt a bit compelled to put it on at this point. I didn't want to offend him even though I have never been the type to wear flowers in my hair. no big deal though; I'll just put it on for a few minutes to make him happy. It wasn't a flower. It was a huge, penis shaped missile.
It launched me into some neighboring sim and after I splatted to the ground, it wouldn't come off. I clicked detach, tried to delete it, etc. I relogged and still couldn't get rid of it. I finally uninstalled SL from my computer and when I re-loaded it, I was finally free of it.
He was so shocked that I was mad. Really sincerely shocked. He just couldn't understand how I could fail to see the humor in it. That was one of the few times I have used bad words in SL and I really believe that if I saw him again, I would use some of that same vocabulary.
There are two morals to this story.
- Lennon Dovgal is a complete asshat. He is one of those people who makes scrolly designs in his profile using punctuation. What was I thinking?
- I will never accept an inventory item from a stranger again.
It has been far too long since I have seen either Mistress or Jan, so one of you please login. I'll wait.
Good things come to waiters.
Just after I typed that bit about waiting, Jan showed up (or did I just notice that you were already online?). We got about an hour together, and then Mistress logged in. I have a Midas touch apparently.
Here is something that felt odd. I was late handing in some assignments and Mistress asked if I felt like I should be punished. After just having blogged about how I like that she has remained so concrete it would have been hard for me to say no to that. Mistress decided to put her slave to good use and have me list five punishments for myself.
If I go too easy on myself she will surely make up for it and I certainly don't want to be too hard on myself. I am sure that she would gladly oblige. The list I gave her had 8 or 9 things on it and went from a sincere apology to paying a fine. Who knows how this will turn out?
I started on the remainder tonight, saw Jan login and just as I sent her an IM, she logged off. I guess I was late on that too.
Oh well. Hopefully a decent night of sleep will help. The bed in the hotel was just the worst! Both of us were stiff and creaky when we woke up. The hotel must have gotten their bedding at a cut rate. It looked like the fitted sheet had 5 corners. I woke up in a complete tangle.

She will ask me to do something that will at first glance, cause a conflict with my rules. Today she asked me to explain something to a girl she is considering. When I responded that I might need to use the 'T' word, she just told me that I had better be careful. No exception for the sake of explaining something, no lenience, no temporariness of the rules. Her rules are THE rules.
It would have been so easy for her to lift that rule - especially for just a few minutes - but she didn't. That firmness and concreteness somehow builds security for me. Regardless of what ever else changes and bends, that part of SL is so very stable. It is oddly comforting.
I interviewed a girl for Mistress today. It is so stressful for me to do that. I have to try to get inside the mind of the Mazi. What would SHE ask and what would SHE have that answer mean? That part is hard enough but when Mistress asks me for my opinions about the person I talked, I just feel this huge weight (I before E except after W?) on me, like this poor person's fate with Mistress hangs on my words. I feel like a Roman emperor doing the thumbs up or down to a gladiator. I am hopefully a little less heartless that they are always portrayed to be.
So anyway this girl, Dina seemed to do well but she is not a native English speaker. There are so many nuances that are lost when I talk to her. I am anxious to see what happens. /me smiles.
I am already worried that I will get ahead of myself. I must remember my position!
Every time I am with my 2 people in SL - Mistress and Jan - I leave SL even closer to those two. What they feel for me, I most surely feel for them.

[11:26] Oliver Sharple: Hi. I'm new to Second Life can anyone answer any questions and generally just have a chat to me or something via IM?
I didn't notice it for five minutes but sadly, no one had responded to this poor man. I took him to Free Dove, lectured him about his inventory and such, then showed him Scramble, his ticket to riches. As the seedy bar was rezzing, we chatted:
[12:18] Emilee Gackt: So while we wait, tell me what you think you'll want to do in SL for fun.[12:18] Emilee Gackt: Beside making clothes.
[12:19] Oliver Sharple: Hmm I have no clue... xD
[12:19] Emilee Gackt laughs.
[12:19] Emilee Gackt: Well tell me what you like to do in the real world.
[12:20] Oliver Sharple: Well i'm a bit of a musician, play the clarinet. I got out the the pub sometimes with my friends and yeah.. lol
[12:21] Emilee Gackt: What kind of music do you play?
[12:21] Emilee Gackt: Jazz?
[12:21] Emilee Gackt: Blues?
[12:21] Emilee Gackt: Polkas?
[12:21] Oliver Sharple: Classical sometimes Jazz
[12:21] Emilee Gackt: I have a friend who can help you with that.
[12:22] Emilee Gackt: She likes music too and knows some good jazz places in SL.
[12:22] Oliver Sharple: Cool
[12:22] Emilee Gackt: I'll send her your name.
Ok Jan, the newbie ball is in your kindness court but of course you have no obligation to IM this person.
He wasn't quite getting the hang of Scramble at first so I had to help him. It was like watching money vanish.
[12:44] Hell Bop Bar Scramble Game: TCNEWLRUGIAA - (of a person or animal) to make a high unpleasant noise like a cat

And we have a final ruling on gifts: One per week, non-monetary in nature. A week is defined as Monday through Sunday but gifts don't rollover. So I COULD conceivably get a gift at 11:59 PM on Sunday and then another gift at 12:01 AM on Monday. It would mean no more gifts until the following Monday, but it would sure be a fun Sunday night!
Mistress seems to have found another slave and she seems to be a glutton for punishment. I know that Mistress would never have thought up all that stuff on her own, so the inspiration must have come from the new resident of Cell 1-A. /me shrugs. Whatever floats yer boat, bekkers.
I hadn't seen Mistress all weekend and above all it was delightful to see her again. Mondays are usually a busy day for her so did she re-arrange things just to see me? Nah... she'd never do something so un-Mistress-like. If she did, though... well let's just say it didn't go unnoticed or unappreciated.

[15:17] Jebus Beaumont: i liked 40 seconds
Got some more Jan time in, although she is east coast like Mistress is, so no matter which of my dearest two people in SL are online, I get to feel guitly about keeping them up until some ungodly hour. Sorry you two. Just move to Arizona. You'll LOVE the winters!

[17:59] Hell Bop Bar Scramble Game: NHIPASIR - a thin metal U-shaped pin which is used to hold part of the hair in the desired position
[17:59] You: hairpins
[17:59] Hell Bop Bar Scramble Game: Congratulations Emilee Gackt, you have won this round in 7 seconds.
[17:59] Hell Bop Bar Scramble Game: The word was 'hairpins'.
She breaks her own record and the crowd goes wild!
So... what to do?
Mistress said that she remembers something about having a rule against me accepting gifts; she probably read my loophole craving mind. So I have been taking all of the notecards of the conversations between Mistress and me and pasting them into Word so I can search them. My goodness this is boring!
The benefit will be that when Mistress needs to know if something is or isn't a rule, I can search for it and remove all doubt. The un-benefit will be that it is of course a double edged sword. I might be proved wrong as often as I am right.
I've finished August and found nothing about gifts being banned. There were a few mentions of gifts - groups gifts, a gift from Mistress, etc., but not the conversation Mistress referred to.
Ok, back to the boredom!
Nothing in July either. It looks like the loophole stands! Woohoo! The gackt scores again! Of course the other problem with putting these notes into word is that Mistress is likely to realize that it isn't a bad idea and that I should do that all the time now. Shhh! I have plenty to do already!
This one was just dumb:
[18:46] Hell Bop Bar Scramble Game: ASLESMI - to intend:
[18:46] You: amiless
[18:46] You: aimless
[18:46] Hell Bop Bar Scramble Game: Congratulations Emilee Gackt, you have won this round in 34 seconds.
[18:46] Hell Bop Bar Scramble Game: The word was 'aimless'.
Why does Blogger feel like it gets to decide how I should have my lines spaced? Ugh! anyway, 'aimless' does NOT mean to intend. It's just the opposite!
We spent the rest of the night just talking about my birthday, about Jan's night with Mr. Wonderful, his drop dead gorgeous sister and winning more Lindens at Hell Bop. Not a bad night at all.

Ok I am officially hot at this game. 8 seconds is untouchable by anyone, anywhere.
I've made $64L so far and had fun doing it but it's odd how my perspective has changed. I went from spending hundreds of Lindens everyday to having none, and then having them be so closely monitored. It is interesting how scarcity changes your outlook on things. A month ago I'd have looked at $64L as almost nothing and now it's an accomplishment that I earned that many in a day.
I had a fun night tonight. Jan cam and hung out in the seedy bar where this Scramble game is and we met a really new newbie. He had butterfly wings and he honestly seemed to like them. Jan and I cured him of that as quickly as we could, which still wasn't quick enough.

Thank you Jan, for sticking with me and my limited windows of time I can give you. Every second is worth it and is a treasure.
Tonight's lesson, also brought to you by the letter 'M,'
[2:33] Jacquelin Mazi: imagine... just for a moment.... how perfect it would feel.... if you just gave in to those feelings hm? stop and play it through your lil gackty heart.... how does it feel? still scary? if you stop thinking so much and worrying?
[2:34] Emilee Gackt: It would feel freeing Mistress.
[2:34] Emilee Gackt: I could just do it.
[2:34] Jacquelin Mazi smiles
This is more than just SL stuff between Mistress and me. There are real lessons here. How much more genuine would people be if thought and repercussions and expectations didn't cloud what they did and said? /me smiles and goes to bed. I'm sure I'll remember plenty that I forgot to blog. For now this will do.
[8:02] Emilee Gackt shouts: Don't bother - They're overpriced and over-ugly!
What is the deal with Fat Packs? Why would anyone want 6 of the same top in such similar hues? What am I not getting?
And what is a Willow pack? What does that even mean? Who is Willow? Does she know Ruth?

/me smiled and started to type an IM. "Let's get together Jan, quick before Mistress arrives!"
I clicked on 'Send' and got this...

Ack! I JUST barely missed her! This is a textbook example of a bugger.
