New Years Eve

arial-ball-gownsMany people post retrospectives of the year gone by, or predictions and resolutions for the year to come. I offer nothing of the sort. I offer you my usual fare: pictures of dancing and fun.

I scripted in the morning then met withhell-without-armor my teacher to show him what I’d done. Oh dear. I misunderstood the assignment. I was trying to make it harder than it was. πŸ™‚ So I am actually back at the beginning of the dumb sliding door assignment which was supposed to be a simple exercise readying me for the swinging door. LOL. Leave it to me…. But I learned a lot from what I was trying to do, so not a big problem.

I managed to get to the Crown and Pearl for the beginning of that party. Had fun dancing and chatting. Tried to IM friends who were on at that time to wish them all happy new year also. Then I needed to log to get ready for RL.

RL was a blast. Had our traditional gathering at our house. Good friends, good fun, laughter, relaxation. new-years-eve-danceWe all managed to stay awake til midnight (not so easy sometimes given all the food and drink and our usual sleep patterns πŸ™‚ ). One of the things that I prefer in SL to RL is the dress code. I rather wish I got to wear my SL clothing in RL. That would be fun. We stayed up quite late, laughing our way into the new year. So I slept away most of the first morning of 2009. I made it awake in time to see that it was still morning, but that’s about as close as I got. πŸ™‚ I never made it back to SL till well into the evening. And thereby proved a point. I CAN go more than 24 hours without logging into SL. LOL. And livebirthday-girl-and-friends a fulfilling happy life. Of course, I didn’t get any scripting done. Tomorrow. I promise. Tomorrow I’ll get the sliding door assignment done. Correctly.

In the meantime… I love my stuffed bear but it is noisy. 😦 It makes all these noises that it claims are growls and breathing but that sound like mewls of pain. I may have to put him back in the inventory.

Lots of things have happened in the last few days that were fun and I took pictures but I didn’t blog immediately and now more things have happened. baby-and-evan-and-linusSo I may never get to show you fishing at the Crown and Pearl. Bailey got bored and dropped the floor. Again. This seems to be a fairly common occurrence. πŸ™‚ I staggered in fresh from scripting, only to find myself knee-deep in water. Getting my fishing rod working was an adventure. I may get that posted, may not. Maybe just the pictures up on Flickr. Logged in tonight to discover that over New Year’s Eve my neighbors turned the property into a landing strip. Yup. Raised the land, put in a landing strip. Sigh. So I terraformed my land in response. How do I suddenly know how to terraform? Because a friend gave me an underwater cave to terraform and a crash course in terraforming. πŸ™‚ A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. So there has been a lot going on that isn’t getting posted. LOL. Actually, there is OFTEN stuff that happens that doesn’t get posted. People pay me a LOT of money to make sure that things don’t get posted. πŸ™‚ That’s a joke, for all of you who take me literally.

I hope you all had a pleasant and safe holiday. I wish you and yours a healthy happy new year. May this year bring good and peace and health to us all.

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!
