Company in the morning

sharon-drops-in-for-morning-coffeeIt 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. a-blue-morning-is-not-a-sad-morning 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.

darceys-egg-hunting-outfitBlue 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 can-i-haz-a-jobabout 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 seeking-advice-from-a-professionalhave 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.

So if it’s early morning and you are on and I am on – IM! I always (mostly) have time to share a cup of morning brew! As long as you are not some escaped bot dancing to music only you can hear!

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!
