Tent Spankings?

Yes, I know that the title is odd. When you write your blog you can title it whatever you want! Now, before I get into the nuts and the bolts of this entry, I have a beef. Every single birthday that I have celebrated at After Dark has come with the promises of spankings, lots and lots of spankings. Picture people lining up to dish out spankings! Well, once again, the only spankings I got were from Meegan. I am just letting you all know that next year I expect more! You have one year to warm up your spanking skills!

Now that I have THAT out of the way….onto why we are really here!

After Dark through an amazing birthday for both me and Funkyfreddy Republic this past Tuesday. Freddy and I do not share a birthday but his is on the 24th and mine the 25th. Since After Dark is located on Idle Rogue, which is an Aussie sim, we kind of sort of do share a birthday when we are there. If you are thinking my math might be a little sketchy, or my reasoning slightly off then 1. You are wrong and 2. I have brought a graph that proves such.*

Everyone knows that graphs only ever show the truth. You know why? SCIENCE!!

Meegan wanted a theme for the party that would suit both of the guests of honor. It just so happens that I love camping and Freddy is an avid outdoorsman. So what better setting for the festivities than a campsite in the mountains?!? LadyGlory worked her magic and transformed After Dark into a gorgeous outdoor space complete with tents and mountains! There evening was a blast and the music was fantastic! I will stop my fingers from tapping the keyboard and let you see for yourself!

If you were not there, you missed one hell of a party, After Dark is keeping the décor up through this Sunday 1/29 due to the awesome response it received. So come by and check it out. Lounge in the tents. Gaze at the majestic scenery. Love the great outdoors while it is still indoors!

On a personal note, thank you to everyone for the great time that was had Tuesday night. The happy birthdays and well wishes were fantastic. You all sure know how to make a gal feel good!

*Please note there is nothing scientific about this graph. It was just fun to make.

Happy Birthday Reknard!

There are many regulars who we adore at After Dark. What do we do for those we adore? We show them just how much they mean to us and celebrate them and their milestones!

Reknard Goldshark, also knows as LadyGlory’s arm candy, has been a fixture at After Dark since I have been visiting there. Rek has a wonderful sense of humor, a generous soul and is just an all around good guy. It was a pleasure to celebrate his birthday with him and with some of his favorite musicians!

LG and Rek RBD

Stephanniyah Sinatra started off the night. (And because I am none too bright some nights, I completely blanked on taking a picture of her while she was on stage!) Steph is not only one of Rek’s favorite artists, but she also played at the wedding of Rek and LG. Steph had Rek and LG all starry eyed, gooey and flirty. They are my favorite couple in SL and they routinely make me throw up a little in my mouth.

Fred and Max RBD Fred and Max2 RBD Max RBDThe evening ended with LG giving Rek a VERY special birthday gift and ended up earning herself a little spending money in the process! Sadly, I did not take any pictures of Rek receiving his gift from LG and even if I had, I am sure she would be less than thrilled with me if I posted them here! Instead I will give you this “dramatic reenactment“. Not entirely safe for work, but not the worst I could do either!

Happy Birthday Rek!

Happy Birthday to Me!

What is the best part about working for a place you love, a place that hosts your favorite live acts, a place where you have felt at home from day one? When you get older, they rock the hell out of a birthday party!

There is something about being surrounded by great music that makes jumping an age bracket a lot easier. Yes, I no longer fall into the 25-34 age group when I fill out surveys, but I got to ring in my 35th year with good friends, sweet tunes and a few surprises!

 

Birthday decor 3

LadyGlory outdid herself with the decorations. Her exact words were “I hope it is not too girly!”. I may drink and cuss and belch like a sailor, but I still love getting girly! I was really touched that she acknowledged my love of wieners by having hot dogs in the food spread!

Ty Throne

 

Had I been warned that Meegan would have a birthday throne on the stage and would expect me to sit in it for photo ops I might have made sure I was wearing a dress that was “sit worthy”. But I wasn’t and I didn’t and I spent too much time getting my necklace just flipping right, so I did what I normally do. I embraced the inappropriateness of the moment and showed the world my alpha layer on more than one occasion!

 

Snapshot _ After Dark_Rhi's Poem, Mai Tai (86, 80, 3573) - ModeOblee started off the evening by playing every stinking song that I asked him to! Poor dude probably did not expect a list when he asked if I had any requests! Obs gets an extra high-five for playing even though I forgot to confirm him! (And this is why I do not book!) Crap! I nearly forgot! I asked Oblee to play something that no one in the crowd would expect, something “completely silly and ridiculous”. He freaking nailed it with “Parents Just Don’t Understand”. Spitting every lyric like he had written it himself!

Birthday Loreen_TY 2

Loreen Legion’s lovely voice started the second hour of fine tunage. It was pretty obvious from the get-go that there was something up Loreen’s sleeve. On more than one occasion she mentioned that she had a surprise for everyone. And what a perfect surprise it was! Enter Mr. Voodoo Shilton and this birthday girl was in dual stream heaven!

Birthday Ty_Voo

Voodoo carried on solo into the third hour. Feet were tapping, and I giggled more than once during his new tune “Airport Love”. I am fairly certain that it is impossible to not have a happy heart when listening to Voodoo Shilton. I know it is not possible for me!

 

 

Birthday Ty_Fred

As the night was drawing near the end, the fantastic FunkyFreddy Republic took the stage. Freddy had just celebrated turning a year older the day before and it was a complete honor to have him on stage for my birthday. Call me weird, but hearing Fred play Grave Digger into Don’t Fear the Reaper really was a feel good moment for me!

The evening ended with one final photo op. How could we possibly let Fred escape without sitting in the birthday throne?!?! He looks good in pink…..I might need to get him one of those chairs next year for his birthday!

 

 

I cannot thank the After Dark family enough for throwing together this shindig. Another big round of thanks goes out to the musicians who played! Y’all sure do know how to make a girl feel loved!
