Guy Fawkes

I’ve come across Guy Fawkes in my reading. I know this is a big celebration night in the UK. I confess – I don’t really understand all the emotional content of the holiday. But I DO understand parties and celebrations and fireworks! So I’m very happy that in my SL travels I have found the Crown and Pearl and its sizable contingent of Brits. (I do hope that is a politically-acceptable term and that I am not offending anyone. Sigh.) The CnP regulars know how to party every day, but give them a holiday and they really explode. Literally. Rockets, fireworks, sparklers, streamers, profusion of particles everywhere. I rezzed there last night to discover a huge bonfire burning in the middle of the floor. I did inquire about fire department regulations but was assured that everything met the code. 🙂 I was dubious but I have to admit that although the fire blazed prodigiously, the floor was not consumed.

Prad apparently did the setup, and then turned the crowd loose. Rockets and fireworks lined the floor. No sooner had one round exploded and showered us with brilliant colors, then the next round was rezzed and assembled. People timed the process and grabbed on to the rockets just at take-off and rode up into the sky and fell back as part of the show. (No, of course I didn’t do that. You KNOW that I hate falling. 🙂 I played the part of enraptured audience.) Everyone was giddy and crazed and having a wonderful time watching explosion after explosion after explosion. We were all immersed in the illusion. A wonderful night, a wonderful celebration. Kudos to Prad and the CnP!

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
