It used to be I logged on to SL after work and stayed on into the wee hours of the morning. But now I logon AT work and start my work day inworld – scripting, building, thinking. By the time I get back home, after what has become a horrible commute, I’m pretty much tuckered out. Often I choose to curl up with a book. 🙂 Imagine that. So I’m not getting to as many events as in the past. I’m certainly not going to as many parties. And I’m not hanging out at the Crown and Pearl, or sailing or riding horses or doing much of anything but chatting. 😦
But sometimes good things DO come to those who wait. 🙂 This last week I’ve had several early morning visitors. There I am, enjoying a cup of coffee at the office or scripting on the sand at home, and friends drop by. Such a pleasant way to start the day.
Blue came by to visit the other day. Neither of us had time to dance, but we hung out and watched the ducks for a bit. Darcey is back in town. She had been hunting Easter eggs and dropped by to show me her loot. Sharon was passing by on her way to other things, but kept me company while I had my early morning coffee!
On the other hand, later in the morning I can get some more diverse visitors. 🙂 I was sitting at my desk, thinking that it was just about time to put down the scripting and eat some lunch when male Sabra burst into my office. Yes, that was his name. He wriggled and writhed and slid all about my office. He definitely was attracted to doors. He kept opening all the doors in the office, even the door to the executive bathroom. He never said anything that made sense. He said “hey” and “yok” and “2f” and “esefrfo” and other illuminating phrases. I decided that he must have been applying for a job. He spent most of his time wriggling directly in front of my desk. 🙂 Finally I called in Dale for a professional opinion. WHAT was this guy?? We never really came to any convincing conclusion and we never got him to say anything coherent. But it was good for a little lunchtime laugh.
