I scripted in the morning then met with 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. 🙂 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. We all managed to stay awake til midnight (not so easy sometimes given all the food and drink and our usual sleep patterns 🙂 ). 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. 🙂 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 live 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. So 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. 🙂 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. 🙂 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. 🙂 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.
