The Bellisserian Bureau of Bureaucracy

By Gemma Cleanslate

Everyday brings something new going on in the Bellisseria regions. The bigger the continent gets the more ingenious faux businesses appear. It is great fun living over here .

The latest addition is ‘The Bellisserian Bureau of Bureaucracy”, known as the BBB. So off I went to inspect the office. It is located on a houseboat in Hammerhead Light region and is open to all of Bellisseria. Residents can apply for documents at the office and I did.

 There were a couple of other residents there when I arrived so I took a ticket, sat patiently and waited my turn.  I had a cup of coffee while there.There were even magazines, not too old too. Finally I picked up my application and filled it out carefully so I would not be denied.  Since the entrepreneur of this endeavor was out to lunch I sent it to him to take care of when he came back. (Boo Rojyo) sent me a note that so many were applying I might have to wait a couple days for delivery. That was fine with me. I recall waiting for my last passport for at least ten days and it was a lot more expensive since this one if free.

The very next day there it was in the mail! Amazing!! So official looking and it is a lifetime passport! Now I can visit some of the far off locations in Second Life with no problem.

I also picked up an application for a personalized License plate and will fill that out today. In the future I read that I may be able to get a driver’s license too [if I can stay off the lawns of Bellisseria]. Boo said, "a guy named Roman WeylynAll" will be making them. All can apply if they can verify their residency. If you would like to visit here is the address for the office : Hammerhead Light (73/91/22). Visitors are always welcome even if you are not a resident.

While I was in the office I noticed a poster for the Community Group Consociate that gave me a landmark so off I went to check it out. Here we have another home  that is set up to share all the possible groups available to residents and probably visitors that are interested in joining a group they might enjoy. Iseult NĂ­ Urquhart (PrudenceAnton Resident) and   Cian Wycliffe are running this group. Iseult says “  He is the parcel owner to the Bellis Blues Cafe we both run in Bellisseria.  We  have that location, the Bellisseria Group Consociate and I put out the Bellisseria Parade of Homes and Resident Owned Places of Interest lists twice a month” Busy people!!! 

Joiner links are in the posters of various groups on the wall. I joined a couple new ones. Everyone loves a parade and there is a parade everyday in Bellisseria. If I joined all these groups I would need two premium accounts !!! There is room for more posters of other groups not represented yet. Visit and see what it is all about:

P.S. : My license plate just arrived!

Valentine Town

by Gemma Cleanslate

Time is moving so fast! Valentine Day is only nine days away and Mardi Gras is coming on February 25! Now we have to get ready for both.  A great place to visit for all your Valentine needs is Laura Liberty’s Valentine Town. Every year she outdoes the previous year with new additions. I love to see the facades of the buildings in all her creations.

When you land, the first possibility is to hop the Tunnel of Love car that will give you a ride through the tunnel’s sparkling displays and along the river to the town center. Bring your honey if you like to enjoy or take the ride alone. It is great fun either way. Laura is known for her amazing tunnels that fit the holiday .

The town center has several ways for you to celebrate this love holiday.There is a dance ball and music for you to enjoy while there. If you have admired someone from afar and never had the nerve to say it now is your chance. Anonymously you can send a pretty note to that person that will make them wonder and perhaps look around to find the sender. It is done through the magic of her machine, or you an take a chance and sign your name. Take a look, and, it is free! If you are lucky naughty Tina is there in her role of Cupid with a bad habit. She loves cigars and smokes incessantly.

Suppose you don’t have a significant other and are looking. Laura has a new addition, a Singles board! Just click the board, put a picture, and hope someone wants to meet the person behind the picture and will send you a note. Fun way to meet new friends! Across the way there are theaters demonstrating how to make your own cinema with your own captions. There is a sample to let you see what you will get, your own theater showing your own story. Take a look at the cute video there.

Stop into the shops and get all your needs for Valentine day. When you are finished with your visit here you have another place to visit on the region. Back at the town center there is a tp to Laura’s Mardi Gras Town.

I love to visit this representation of a New Orleans street scene with its cheerfully colored buildings and music of the city playing. Grab a free hula hoop, beads, and crown. Here you can gather up all the decor and outfits you need to celebrate Mardi Gras day. I love the masks in the shop, a huge selection! Take a picture of yourself and your honey and put it on the bulletin board by sending it to the naughty Tina Cupid, Tina  (Tanyja Resident). Use the free face animation hud offered at the board to enhance your photo. There is another board nearby with some fun puzzles to attempt before you leave. You might need to go back again for more tries (laughter). I do. Thanks again to Laura Liberty for making this grand experience . I am looking forward to the next one already!!
