    I returned this morning from a one week holiday at the ocean. I rent a condo for a week every august to escape from the desert heat of my hometown.

    Upon logging in this morning I was gated to a " must attend " IDOC.
    To be frankly honest over the years I have only attended a handful of IDOC and walked away with nothing or very little. Todays was a different story.

    IDOC plots have a long history in our realm and many players live for them. By todays turn out I can see they are still very popular.

    I spent an hour there with a friend and the people just kept on coming. In the past there has been story telling, jokes, bragging and many a fashion statement made during a IDOC. The one thing I did not recall was much trash talking but todays event was full of it to my shock. Most could never be repeated by a lady.

    It was not long until the drama stopped as the house dropped with very little lag I might add and I walked away with a chest full of great items including double blessed things. My lucky day. I was surprised however Gem of FCB was not there. Rumor has it she is a IDOC addict.

    Before I left on my holiday I snagged a few photos from the Brit and Luna Banks I would like to share.
    Aleera was creating a text in piles of gold and it took me awhile to figure out the second letter was a heart. I never did find out who she loves/hearts.

    Another player created a design on the Brit Bank roof that kinda looked like a pointalist painting if you really stretched your imagination. Then there was the nod to the three stooges in Luna created by Cold Fire.

    The day before I left for the ocean I was asked by friend blanc De blanc to attend thursday nights auction at MOA. I had not been in many months so I took her up on her invite.

    As the message board stated thursday night was indeed going strong!
    Old friend Steelheart was there. I have not seen him much as he has been away at college. Poison Ivy, Hannah of DYT, Princess Melody and I were all there early eating dinner in real life as we chatted about food and current events before the patrons arrived. It did not take long for Bearclaw of DC*, Christophe of @_@, a Crack Fiend, Hans, Guybrush of DC*, Fawn, Draco Hammer of NWJ, Vittorius, Countess Aibel of W-R, Sir Mixll of NWJ, Fallen Angel, Cute Pet of G-V, Lady Diamond of R*R, Rickster, The Hungry Hobo, Marduk, Haemetite of GoF, Lord Symbolia, Kikyo, ASH of DC*, Pedro, Juaco, Finders Keepers of CRIM, Clair, Lady Minty Bubbles, Exodus, Marisa Morgan, Wynter, Mistic of GGR, Anakausuen, Lady FiFi LaForge,& Journey and Forte of DC* to arrive. Needless to say there were many more.


    As you can see by the screenshots above Princess Melody, Melian and Emerald Ice were running the event. Be sure to take a close look at Melian's outfit! Do you think Pratt is aware of this outrageous uniform ? I thought MOA was a family event, lol.
