What I did on my summer vacation!

Remember that Sunday that After Dark didn’t have shows? About a week or so ago? I know Meegan claimed it was due to Guerilla Bu!rlesque performing at Indee Teepee. What she failed to mention is that she was also taking the After Dark crew on a summer vacation! The “team building” trip that she took the crew on to Mardi Gras was such a success that she decided we should do it again and what better place than the beach?!

I will not bore you with the details of the trip there. Some motion sickness, lots of “Are we there yet”s, a zillion bathroom stops, and a group singalong of the entire Sound of Music soundtrack, led by Meegan. You know, the typical road trip stuff.  The one thing I will mention is that Meegan told us that we would be traveling in a vintage convertible. We were all stoked……until we saw the ride she was talking about. In hindsight, it was roomier and the wind in the hair is the wind in your hair no matter the vehicle, I suppose! So, road trip, blah, blah, blah. Then……..BEACH! Lucky for us the beachfront house that Meegan had booked for the trip did not leave us hanging like the vehicle of choice had! Meegan had some team building activities planned for us, but after the long ride we all just wanted to hit the sand and relax. After the shenanigans that had taken place at Mardi Gras, Meegan felt the need to sit us ladies down and give us a little talking to about how we should behave since we were representitives of After Dark. Dark would have been given the same talking to but he had to go speedo shopping as he had left his banana hammock at home. Not to mention he was the only one of the group who kept his nips covered at the last outing! Turns out that Meegan is so engaging that several other women gathered to hear her words on decorum and behavior. Meegan’s words of wisdom went a long way. We all behaved like perfect examples of humans…..until the liquor came out. I feel the need to mention that we would probably have stayed in our model behavior mode were it not for our fearless leader leading us directly down a path to wild beachy madness! Yes, as per usual, it was ALL Meegan’s fault! (Isn’t it always?!?)

I am going to let the pictures tell most of the story, but I will give you a “cliff-notes” version of the trip. There was a twerking contest.  Dark managed to find the smallest piece of fabric with the most print ever to cover his bits. The only team building that took place was the building of a human pyramid and turning Dark into a sand mermaid. We did learn a lot about each other though. We learned that Portia can bong a beer like no one’s business. We learned that LadyGlory is the Frank Lloyd Wright of sand castles. We learned that Dark has….shall we say, interesting taste in swim attire. We learned that after enough tequila, Shanny can sleep anywhere. We learned that Meegan cannot be trusted near the water after 3 vodka tonics. And we learned that, no matter how old I (your blogess bitch) get, I can still not be considered a “responsible adult.”

But again, I will let the pictures tell the story!

Meegan claiming the tide was dragging her under. She calmed down after we pointed out that she was in a fountain. Thankfully we noticed her before the police did!

LadyGlory prepping for her sandcastle building. Sadly, 2 minutes after the picture of the final product was taken I tripped over my own feet and face planted into it.

Meegan giving the competition the stink eye at the beach twerking contest. Do I even need to tell you who won??

What a bunch of beaches! The beachy babes of After Dark!

Dark always wanted to know what it felt like to have a nice rack, so as a team building exercise we gave him one!

The whole crew posing for a montage worthy group photo!

Portia had downed her beer before I was even halfway through mine!

Team building exercise number two! It only took about 20 tries to get this right!

Dark showing off his “eclectic” taste in swimwear!

Shanny summing up how we all felt by the end of the trip….too bad for her this was the first night there. And yes, she does sleep with her eyes open. It’s creepy.

I have been told that there are MANY other pictures of us from that trip floating around out there, but what happens at the beach stays at the beach….at least that goes for all of the things we cannot remember!

Jelly Don’t Shake Like That!

May has arrived! That means one very special thing! Spring has arrived? Pffft, I don’t know about where you are from, but spring seemed to arrive here in freaking February this year! Nope, we don’t give a rat’s patootie that spring has sprung. May means a short break for After Dark! Calm yourselves. I said SHORT break, and it is for the best reason ever……..IT’S JAM TIME!!!!

Meegan, LadyGlory, and yours truly, Tyche, will be attending the Mid-Atlantic Jam in Baltimore, MD from 5/18 to 5/21! This will be the third year After Dark takes a short break for people to get their jam on. Meegan and Ty attended the Twin Cities Jam in 2016 and the Mid-Atlantic Jam in 2015. This year LG will be making the trip as well and it will be nothing short of EPIC!!!

It will not just be us ladies there, oh heck no, there will be a plethora of musical talent there. Honestly, it cannot be a jam without there being amazing tunes to jam to!! Among the talent that will be there for our jamming pleasure (Yes, I am fully aware I just said “jamming pleasure”) will be After Dark regulars Voodoo Shilton, Grif Bamaisin, Cellshader, Hunson Abadeer, TwinGhost Ronas and last but not least, the man who has probably attended more SL music jams that any other musician, Max Kleene!

As I did last year, I have taken it upon myself to flex my artistic license and dust off my mad photo editing skills to bring you what might be the best thing you have ever seen. Through the magic of digital editing I present to you the group hug that will be happening at the jam! If that isn’t the most epic group hug, I don’t know what is! And I assure you that I will be doing my best to have this fake photo reenacted in real life!

Now that the silliness is finished, on to business. After Dark will be on hiatus from Wednesday May 17th to Monday May 22nd. We will be back to bringing you the outstanding music that you have come to know and love so well on Tuesday May 23rd!

Please try not to miss us too much, We know it is hard, but everyone needs a little break sometimes. It is not you, it is us, we swear! Remember, if you love something, set it free to jam, and if it returns to you then you know that love is real!

 

Mardi O…..M…..Gras!

This coming Tuesday is Fat Tuesday. The culmination of the Mardi Gras celebration. You know good and well that After Dark loves a theme and there is no more fitting theme for After Dark than Mardi Gras. Beads, booze, boobs, gluttony, glutes and gorgeous people! Speaking of….do you all remember the time that the After Dark crew road tripped to New Orleans to take place in all of the debaucherous mayhem? Oh, you don’t? Ha! Neither do they. They had such a wild weekend that most of it only exists as small hazy glimpses. Lucky for everyone, I have a mind like a steel trap and the few photos that exist from the trip!

Every sweet road trip needs a sweet ride!

Meegan had the fantastic idea of taking the whole After Dark crew down to New Orleans as a team building exercise. It seemed like the perfect idea. Party down, build morale and write off the entire trip as a business expense! The crew gathered at After Dark on the Friday before Fat Tuesday and embarked on what would turn out to be one of the most epic road trips ever!

The trip down to NOLA was fairly uneventful. There were your typical road trip shenanigans. The screaming of “SHOT GUN!” at every stop. The eating of mass amounts of gas station junk food that inevitably lead to the need for a LOT of bathroom breaks. The singing of “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall”, much to nearly every passenger’s dismay. The obligatory getting lost in the middle of no where and swearing that you heard someone playing a banjo at the creepy cabin where you stopped to ask for directions. You know, the usual.

Finally, the group arrived, road weary, already a little sick of one another, and ready to have the time of their lives! After settling in to the motel that can best be described as one step up from being homeless and giving themselves a good power-fluff, the crew hit the town. Almost immediately Dark went missing. One minute he was doing a body shot off of a barely half clothed octogenarian and the next minute he was gone. Everyone figured he had hooked up or passed out, but they were not worried and since he had a few days to be found they partied on.

The weekend carried on as planned. Team building exercises such as “Trust Shots” (where each team member puts their faith into the one taking the trip to the bar to order a round of shots) and physically building a human pyramid with the team were exercised throughout the weekend. At some point during round 10 of Truth Shots, Portia announced in a rather slurred voice that she was heading to bed. I believe her exact words were “I’ms out! Deushes biches!” Given the condition of the rest of the team still standing, no one had the insight to check her room when they returned to the motel and no one saw her again until Fat Tuesday.

Speaking of…..Fat Tuesday arrived and the After Dark crew that was still able to be located was ready for parades, beads and more drinks! The madness started at 8am and carried on from there. Imagine the surprise on everyone’s face when during the 2nd parade who should Shanny flash for beads but Dark! There he was riding high on a float and playing booby ring toss!

The rest of the day and night was a fuzzy blur, even for this bloggess with the memory of steel! Thank goodness LG texted me the pictures she had taken in her phone before she shattered it while diving over Meegan to grab some sweet beads that Meeg’s had barely even shown a nip for. Those few precious pictures will tell the rest of the story.

Shanny and LG showing the goods!

Knowing that flashing my boobs would mean having to sit my drink down I opted for the topless approach.

Meegan completely unwilling to put her drink down, but still getting those beads!

As Fat Tuesday was drawing to a close, everyone started to worry about Portia. She had not been seen since she stumbled out of the bar and towards the motel a few nights earlier. The group was drunkenly meandering through the streets, trying to find their friend and remember where the heck the motel was when they came across a crowd that had gathered to watch a couple dance. And who should be half of that couple? Portia freaking Red!

Scantily clad and shaking what her momma gave her, Portia and the still unnamed man!

And thus concludes the sordid tale of when After Dark hit Mardi Gras like a boss. I say sordid because I left the best bits out as they are not exactly safe for the blog and the statute of limitations on some of the things that went done might not be up!

Join us this Tuesday for a celebration of Mardi Gras at After Dark. Unlike New Orleans, you need to cover your bits and pieces for our party but we will still have an amazing time!

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!

Twinghost kicking off the party!

Max Kleene rocking us!

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!

♥ ~Ty

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

‘Tis the Season!

merryThe holiday season is upon us, there is no denying that. Hell, in some places it seems to pop up right after July 4th in retail stores. With the holidays comes stress, worries and often some Bah Humbug! Whoever wrote the song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” must have been high! We at After Dark want to help make your holidays more tolerable. In the spirit of the season I have taken it upon myself to rework the lyrics of some of our beloved Xmas tunes and give them a bit of an After Dark spin!

In the style of “Baby It’s Cold Outside”
I just want to stay…. (Baby it’s After Dark)
Don’t want to go away….(Baby it’s After Dark)
Meegan’s fierce ass is looking fine (I think that to myself all the time)
I really should go to bed (Psh, you can sleep when you’re dead)
Instead I’m rocking the dance floor (So why not dance a little bit more?)
Eff it, I’ll stay (I knew you would anyway)
‘Cause baby it’s After Dark!
In the style of “Jingle Bell Rock”
After Dark
After Dark
After Dark rocks
People go their to shake their derrieres
Lots of great music and people to perv
Ask one to dance if you get the nerve
After Dark Lounge is the best lounge
for dancing cares away
Live musician will have you wishing
You didn’t have to work the next day
Get yourself to After Dark
Tap Meegan’s tush
And totally ignore the clock
Because After Dark
Because After Dark
Because After Dark ROCKS!
merry2
 In the style of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”
You know Shanny and LG and Tyche and Portia. Dark Phaeton (the man dancing with no shirt on)
But do you recall….the one who pays them all?
Meegan the fierce assed owner
Runs a freaking awesome club
And if you’ve ever been there
You might already be in love
All the musicians and regulars
Think Meegan;s pretty sweet
They like to tap her bottom
So her dances will move their feet.
Meegan is a kick ass dame
with an ass to match
She greets all as they come in
and even when they crash
Ohhhhhhh
Meegan the fierce assed owner
Runs a freaking awesome club
And if you’ve ever been there
You might already be in love
In the style of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”
I saw LG spelling my name wrong
When I landed at After Dark last night
She knew I saw the misspell
But she said what the hell
And went on with her hosting gig
which she does so well!
pjparty
Festive as fu…..uh….fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, right? Need some more spirit of the season? We have sooo got you covered! This Sunday December 18th, After Dark Lounge will be hosting a Christmas PJ Party! There will be prizes for festive jammies. Linden prizes, you ask…oh HO HO HO No! Gag gift prizes. Tyche will be picking then out so chances are they will be rude, crude and possibly offensive! If that is not reason enough to be there then you might just be a Scrooge! And now I leave you with one of the most celebrated sayings of the season……

It’s the thought that counts!

we-hold-these-truths-to-be-self-evident-cover-620x350There are some very obvious truths in the world. Things that cannot be denied. You don’t have to have money to be happy. You don’t have to have a great voice to sing in the shower. You don’t have to be rich to be my girl. You don’t have to watch Dynasty to have an attitude. Just leave it all………and there I go getting off track. The point I am trying to get is that you don’t have to win the top prize to know that you are doing a good job, or to write an acceptance speech. Especially when you write for a blog!

Before the absolute silliness commences, I need to get serious. Everyone at After Dark would like to congratulate all of the nominees and  winners of the Avi Choice Awards. In case you missed the results, we didn’t take home any trophies, but we did make it to the finals for Favorite Live Venue! Thank you so much to everyone who voted and to all of our musicians and regulars that are just such damn amazing people. All of you  put us in the top 5 in a sea of amazing nominees! That alone proves how many awesome people come to After Dark Lounge!

Ok, now for the silliness!

Had After Dark Lounge won for favorite Live music venue, I would like to think that it would have gone down a little like this.

MC: “And the Avi Choice Award goes to…….After Dark Lounge!  *massive applause* After Dark Lounge is not able to join us this evening because, well, it is a building and does not get around too often. Thankfully, through the magic of modern technology we have After Dark via Skype to accept the award”

*camera pans to gigantic screen above the presenters. After Dark Lounge comes into view. A booming voice is heard*

“It is a pleasure and an honor to be receiving such a prestigious award. There are so many to thank, I do not even know where to begin! I supposed I should start with Meegan Danitz. Meegan, you are the platform beneath my structure. I would be nothing were it not for you and your love of live music and your commitment to the live music scene in Secondlife. When I was just a tiny prim I dreamed of greatness, but never did I know to what a level that greatness would reach. I am forever in debt to you Meegan and I hope I am not relegated to the deep dark recesses of your inventory anytime soon.

Next I need to think TheaDee for making me gorgeous. You gave me my first “look” and you keep me hip, hot and current. You are a miracle worker and without you I would be nothing more than an empty brick square.

Speaking of making me look pretty, LadyGlory…… You get me all dolled up for theme nights and let me pretend I am a different building for a short while. Also to LG and Portia, Dark, and Shanny, you all make people love me. You make them feel welcome from the second they land on my gorgeous hardwood floors. You make them want to come see me.

And to those regulars and all of the many musicians……It is a pleasure to have you all inside of me. I have had more musicians inside me than The Madison Square Garden and I love it.  I know that sometimes it can get a little tight inside, but those are the nights I love the most. Knowing that people are ass to elbow inside of me and enjoying the hell out of themselves make me feel completely full, not just in my cavernous space but also in my heart.

There have been times when I was scared. When I thought the music was gone and never coming back. *Cue rain and gentle sniffles* When Meegs got sick…..every year during Burn……when Meegs work was being a total douchebag…….The music always came back though, and the fans returned and my purpose as a venue was once again fulfilled.

Tyche….how could I forget Tyche? You were unexpected, loud, bossy and boisterous. For shit’s sake, you write about me damn near every week. I can admit when I am wrong and filing that restraining order against you was stupid of me and having it repealed was one of the smartest things I ever did.

Last but not least I would like to thank the higher beings…..the Lindens. Your world lets me be me. Hell, it lets me be, period! This one is for you!

Thank you all! After Dark OUT! *drops the mic*

NSFRC (Not suitable for red carpet)

The Avi Choice awards are being handed out this Sunday at 1pm SLT. I am positive that my readers are sick and damn tired of all of the Avi Choice Awards talk. First I harp to get you to nominate, then I get on your butts about voting for the awards and now I STILL want to talk about them?!?! Yep, and I am going to. That is the beauty of writing, I get to write whatever the heck I want!

party-time

Though there are a lot of nominees among the After Dark Lounge crew, none of us will be attending the awards themselves. Some have conflicting things going on, some just don’t have a thing to wear and one, who will not be named is banned for life.*

There was discussion of having an award show listening party, but as per usual there was so much arguing that the whole idea was thrown out the window. Dark can’t have dairy, and Shanny insists on having queso and cheese sticks. Portia is embarrassed to be around people when she listens to award shows. I would be too if I screamed the kind of obscenities she screams when her favorite does not win. LG and Meegan were going to wear the same dress, neither would budge and that led to a “Yea, well my ass looks better than yours” kind of argument that resulted in tears. My tears, because listening to those two argue is enough to make you crazy! As for me, well, seems no one wants to come hang out with the only sane one of the damn group.

The look I will be going for Sunday afternoon. minus the baking whatnot and plus booze!

Long story short, I have no idea what the rest of the After Dark Lounge crew will be doing when the Avi Choice Awards are handed out, but I know what I will be doing! I will be sitting in my living room, in my comfy fleece pants (Sunday is a comfy pant day after all). a football jersey (Umm….Sunday!), fuzzy slippers (it is winter and cold here!) and a tiara. Why the tiara? Jeez people! I t is an award show! I want to feel a little fancy! So anyway, I will be all geared up, vodka and OJ close at hand, my ear glued to the broadcast, while the football game is on in the background. Hey, I love awards shows but I also love my football!

No matter who wins, it is really an honor to be nominated. Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations and voted. I hope that on award day your pants are comfy and your favorites bring home the prize! So pinkies up, cupcakes! It is time to get your fancy on!

♥ Tyche

*Not really, but if anyone was, let’s be honest, it would be Meegan

A lesson in patience…….aka Tyche waits for the Avi Choice Award nominations to be announced!

The Bloggess Bitch is BACK!!

waiting-sucksRemember a few weeks ago when I took it upon myself to talk your gentle little hands and walk you through the process of nominating for the Avi Choice Awards? Whelp, I was hoping to be sitting here this evening writing a thank you to all of those who voted and being super stoked that we received nominations. But…………(extra long dramatic pause)………..THE NOMS ARE NOT UP YET!  So instead I will be pissing and moaning about that. Sure, they said they will be listed on the 3rd of November, no later than midnight and it is only 9pm but COME ON!! They obviously have no idea how impatient I am. What? It is not all about me and what I need to keep me happy? Well fine then!

*runs to see if the noms are up yet….nothing*

patienceIn all seriousness though, whether we receive nominations of not, I want to thank everyone who took the time to nominate. It was not a difficult process, but it was a little time-consuming and to those who took that time, you rock and we love you just a teensy bit more than those who did not. We do love all of you, but you know damn well that everyone has their favorites!

*runs to see if the noms are up yet……still nothing*

BUT WAIT!!!!

There they are! WOOHOO!!

squee After Dark is nominated for Favorite Live Music Venue!!! Holy crap on a cracker! Oh! Oh! Oh! But there is more…this fine piece of journalistic wonder that you are reading and the website that is rests its fine words on is nominated for Favorite Blog or Website, Overall! Sweet sassy molassey! Yours truly was also nominated for Favorite Blogger, overall. I am humbled as fu……..fudge by this! Woah! And this just in! I am literally typing this as the info is coming in to me from my close sources, both Shanny and LadyGlory have received nominations for Favorite Club or Venue Host or Hostess!  Paint me green and call me Gumby! You will not believe the number of amazing musicians that have graced After Dark’s stage that are nominated!

I could play it all cool and preach about how awards are popularity contests and blah, blah, blah, but this is really freaking exciting! To have so many aspects of After Dark Lounge nominated is giving me the warm fuzzies. Yes, it is a popularity contest, but it is one voted on by the people of Second Life and a person or place does not get popular by half-assing things. Being recognized for the hard work that goes into it all is pretty dang amazing! Shut the front door!

Once again, another big THANK YOU to those who took the time to nominate!

vote-now

Now it is time to vote! I know, I know, you thought your part was done and you could just sit back and relax and watch the whole thing play out, but once again it is time to make your voice heard! Again I will make it easy for you. Click HERE to vote for The Arts and HERE to vote for SLife. The rest is easy peasy!

 

Just Hitched!

congratshtiched

What do you so when a venue owner runs off and gets hitched with no pomp and circumstance? You bring the pomp and circumstance to her and her new wife by throwing a big ‘ol fashioned, tacky as can be wedding party! If Meegan and Rebecca thought that they could get away with eloping and not be dealt a good dose of silliness, they were sadly mistaken!

The party had everything one could want at a tacky, somewhat redneck, back yard reception…and so much more! A pickup truck with cans hanging from the tailgate? CHECK! Gigantic pretend pictures from the wedding day? CHECK! More amazing music than one can shake a shotgun at? CHECK! Watermelon and lemonade left over from July 4th? CHECK! A keg full of cold brew, complete with rainbow colored plastic cups? CHECK! Way too bright rainbow wedding cake? CHECK! Dancing girls? CHECK! Totally inappropriate wedding apparel on both brides? CHECK! Lots of love from friends and possibly people who are just trying to score an invite to what will be the wedding of the decade even though the brides are already married? CHECK!  All of that and so, so much more!

So much can be said about the level of fun that was had at After Dark last Sunday, but I will just let the pictures tell the story! A big thank you to Raspbury Rearwin, Voodoo Shilton and Red Heaven for providing the musical entertainment for the evening!

One thing of note, in case you were not there and since it is hard to read in the pictures, Rebecca is wearing a tshit that says “Save a horse, ride the bride”. And that is pure klass!

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate the love of these two amazing women. It was one hell of a night and a total blast! One more special thanks to Voodoo, Shanny and LG for helping Ty pull off the surprise dance for the brides!

 

Our Growing Family

growing familyI bet you did not know we were even expecting! Well, I know you did not know, otherwise I am certain we would have received a lovely gift. Sure, you might have commented to our friend that Tyche was looking a little rounder these days, or that Meegan’s ass was looking extra fierce, but you had no idea!  Yes, the After Dark Lounge family is growing and we are happy to announce that…….

girlThe After Dark Lounge family gives a warm welcome to Shanny Waverider as she takes a position with us as hostess! Some of you regulars are probably thinking “Wait, hasn’t she worked there FOREVER?”. The simple answer is no. The more complex answer is that she has always been there to lend a helping hand whenever it is needed, so you may have seen her hosting at After Dark several times in the past. Now we have made it official! We liked it so we put a ring on it, so to speak!

Shanny’s official initiation begins immediately. We have stocked up on riding crops and baby oil for the occasion….oh, wait….I don’t think that part was supposed to be mentioned. Oh well, the cat is out of the bag now! Please join us in welcoming Shanny as an official member of the fam! (While we have stocked up on riding crops and baby oil, we encourage people to bring their own and initiate away!)*

In honor of the newest member of the After Dark family, we have taken a new staff group photo. It seemed like the right thing to do! You would not believe how hard it is to find sweet coordinating track suits, but we nailed it!

Aren’t we a fine looking brood?!?!?!

Also in honor of Shanny drinking the Kool-Aid I wanted to share one of my favorite photos of her. It is a touching photograph of 3 girlfriends just relaxing at After Dark Lounge one night after the shows were over and the crowd had left. A simple moment between friends, honest, carefree…..uh-oh, here come the tears…..I should just post the photo. s

RELAX!So lovely, huh? Can you guess which is Shanny?

The next time you are at After Dark Lounge, be sure that you give Shanny a warm hello and let her know that you are as happy as we are that she is part of the family!

*Note: If you would like to initiate Shanny, please ask her if you may first. It is only proper!
