You wait all week...

...and then 2 websites come along at once.

This blog has 2 'sister' sites, in the shape of the Cyberpink Weblog, which is a little space for me to update my mashup and remix creation activities and the other is the Fukmi Clothing blog, which Fukmi and myself are updating to keep everyone abreast of the developments over at the clothing label.

There will be some cross pollination with these 2 sites, and you might find big events are mentioned here as well as on there, because not everyone reads everything.

Oh and BTW, I'm hoping to have more news about Candy Girls, the new 'girls only' club night thats starting up soon, but since we had issues with Fire Island over an inrelated item, we decided to use 3 different venues and rotate them but I've just heard something about one of the locations we're planning on using and at the moment it looks as if we won't be using it, so once the details have been finalised, I shall let you (all) know.

Well, it's been a while...

Last time I was here, I was in a state of turmoil with relationship crap n' stuff. Thats all been resolved and a LOT has happened since. I am SO much happier!!!

Firstly, me n' the girl are definitely together. In fact this vision of lovliness has a name, Fukmi Sideways (pronounced Fook-me). She's adorable and we've moved in together, more of which will be coming later in this post. She also did something pretty damned amazing, something thats never happened to me in SL before. She asked me to marry her and I said YES! So, we're currently talking to the wedding planners and everything is set for a June wedding, which will be stunning. I really can't wait.

She's also been designing the summer line for her clothing store and I've pitched in and made a line of tanktops and teeshirts in the summer colours she's picked, so they'll be on sale in her stores soon. I took a great idea by a cool company and gave it a little Fukmi twist, so hopefully they'll sell well. Her new stuff is looking good!

We're also teaming up with the lovely Stacy Spiegel, who is responsible for me meeting Fukmi in the first place. The three of us are organising and promoting a new female only night called 'Candy Girls' at the cool Fire Island, which will take place on the first Saturday of the month, starting in June. It's not a lesbian only night, but Fire Island is a gay resort, so we're expecting the place to be predomininantly vagitarian, but all women are welcome.

So anyway, we've got a house together. It's a pretty modern affair and as we both love art and graphic design, it's stacked to the gills with artwork too. As pictures are better than words, I've taken a few so you can see what it's all like... The house itself is from Botha Architects, who make some incredible homes, you really ought to check them out and the furnishings are from Corn, which is SL's answer to Ikea. The artwork was all selected by myself and Fukmi.
