Who Do YOU Believe???

build-lesson-deteriorated-into-helicoptersI must defend myself. HellspawneD has posted pictures up on Flickr, accusing me of – sob – doing away with one of my ducks!! I ask you – Would *I* harm my ducks???? I stole them away from the evil empire work sim. I blog about them. I named them. I put them on my holiday card. Would I HARM my ducks??

On the other hand, WHO is it who he-started-by-flipping-the-duckshas a history of taking aim at those poor defenseless creatures? I can see now – I should have reported him to the authorities the very first time he took aim. But no, kind-hearted that I am, I thought a mere warning would suffice.

But tonight, there I was, in despair over my build assignment. Unable to make the correct prim be the root prim. I had the hair made. I changed the texture. 🙂 My son’s hair makes a scooping-ducksgreat texture. So there was this hair, all ready to be turned over to the client. But I did not have the correct root prim. What to do? I called to my teacher for help. Ah yes, naive, trusting soul that I am – I asked HellspawneD for help. Perhaps his name should have been a clue……

I confess that he DID help me with boxed-duckthe hair. And made me laugh with his new helicopter. But. Then he took aim at my ducks. Yes – he set his sights on Mallory, Bill and Drake. When you see these photos, who do YOU think would have harmed the duck? Which of us looks most likely to de-construct a duck?

It started gently enough, I suppose. He started flipping the ducks. Slipped a board under them, lifted them up, tossed them in the air. take-evasive-action-ducksThey actually didn’t mind that. They thought it was rather fun. 🙂

But then Hell built a box for scooping them. 10 points for catching the yellow duck, 5 points for a white duck, minus 10 points if you scooped two ducks at once. Oh, for shame!!!

When duck-scooping paled, dark-clouds-of-gunfireHell brought out the artillery. I didn’t even realize that weapons were ALLOWED on my property! (I’m going to have to check my rules.) Good thing that he is such a poor shot and that the ducks are so good at evasive action. It was almost like watching James Bond in action – not one of those shots struck a duck.

When his first sniper attack failed, Hell switched to a laser-gunsrepeater. Good thing I had my MystiTool protecting me, since pellets were spraying EVERYWHERE!!!

So tragic.

Next he brought out a laser gun. He had no more success with lasers than with pellets. Mallory, Drake and Bill remain unscathed. (So did I, on this duck-flambego-round. ) Undeterred, HellspawneD unleashed his native element: FIRE. That is right – he set my little tidal pool aflame.

But my ducks are made of stronger stuff. It will take more than fire and gunshot to sink them!!! In a last-ditch effort, Hell resorted to brute strength – sheer massive over-load to finally-the-anviltry to destroy the Intrepid Swimmers. And still they survive!!

So when you see his photos on Flickr, when you read his accusations, remember what I have shown you here. WHO spent thirty minutes tormenting and endangering my ducks???? Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case.

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!

  1. /me contemplates changing the script to make the poor things non-physical, and thus less vulnerable to poachers… 🙂
