"Chandra's Adventures As Madame Chopsy"
"The Elves Rocketh The Night Regardless"
|The Madame never fails to put the right mood into the occasion.|
She tossed her jacket over a chair and headed backstage. Nobody there yet? How odd.
On one of the vanities she finds a scribbled note lying carelessly around. Of course curiosity gets the better of her, had the cleaning lady obviously already failed in cleaning it up anyhow.
"Festive greetings everyone! I shamefully realise now just how neglected this poor blog has been in past months! Faithfully.. I hold hand on heart and hang my head.. I will try harder.. I promise..Anyhoo with that out of the way as I felt most guilty about it! I continue on with the unveiling...Lets start with the Chistmas show! Spectacluar sets and just jaw dropping effects all round.."
Apparently Madame Chopsy had started already on the blogpost for christmas show even before it started.. how sweet. She must have felt really bad about the long dusty streaks on this blog. Apparently that's when the big wave of Minxettes poored in, the lights light up in the place and the chatting and conversing of the crowd swelled in evergrowing cheerfullness.
Time pushing further and further past the raising-of-curtains point, the Minxette's getting more and more nervous and words like "cancelling" or "moving the show" were dropped several time until one brave Minxette named Jen stepped up and volunteered to run the stream. "Okay so somehow we'll manage this. Everybody sent song links to Jen immediately so she can get them all lined up". Of course this took another little eternity to be accomplished, but eventually it got done. 'Just what.. lining up songs and people to be sent on stage? Sounds easy enough.' went through Chandra's mind, 'Chopsy can do it so it can't be so difficult' - good this was in mind only cause well... it proved to be a bit more tricky than just that. ;)
Diawa as always kept the crowds calm and somehow under control. [I believe she bribed them with promises of gifts and titty galore on stage. More about that later] At the point where there really wasn't any holding back, the jump in the cold water had arrived. "Ok lets get a act on stage! Chandra you good to go? Jen have everyones music?" our charming Hostess Diawa put a word down finally. Set rezzing, nervousity growing [as always, you never get rid of that] and eventually curtain rose with the charming song of Sarah Taylor filling the room.
|Unpacking time with Chandra...|
"I've got some presents for Santa... and He's got a BIG one for me......" piano started and the words were carried with sultry voice melodically into the room, to make audience draw their attention instantly to stage rather then the hot ladies and studs sitting nearby.
|Some unpacked presents just never fail. Specially with the guys!|
|"Ho, Ho, Ho" for everybody - Santa just does it so good!|
Next up was Nicole with a most thoughtful set this christmas show and underlined by The Pogues - "Fairytale Of New York". I am still kinda getting gosebumps, not because of the obvious snow in her set, but the words fading in at the end of a beautiful homeless-Walz-performance in the middle of New York's streets: "Don't forget to support your local homeless during this Festive Season." Thanks so much Nicole for bringing that spirit and thoughtfulness along to the show! <3
However, one of those homeless Nicole had brought in did get a chance for a top spot chair while in dreams unpacking the huge giftbox our devious Diaphoni had placed on stage this eve. This was also the moment where it dawned on me what had happened to our fearless leader, as Dia's original helper for the prime-chair-spot was without internet that night: Chopsy had mentioned an upcoming change of internet provider a month or so before, so as she vanished fully unanncounced there was only one logic conclusion of "The Internnet Gods had messed up the switch." :(
|Unpacking in the mind - Present Time is Good Time!|

Following the unpacking extravaganze was Diaphoni's solo set, which was just the most pretty finisher of this fine christmas cookie known as the historic "When the Madame lived in Internet Outage Space" Christmas Show. [At this point I am also a bit happy for torturing and slave-driving Dia into building when all she really wanted what chat in IMs that week before...]

Here's a few pictures of the grand finale, improvised as usual by Diawa's endless fund of dances in her HUD. [I have more pictures from Kaijah but need to still download from SL]
|Candy, Canes and Sweet Sticky Goodness... and Unwrapping, of course!|
