NEVER Trust Your Friends

Please bring back my bedI stand before you a sadder but wiser woman this morning. I broke one of the great SL rules last night. SL and alcohol do NOT belong together. Especially for one such as myself, for whom a glass of white wine can pretty much be my limit. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, I know – world’s cheapest drunk date. My coworkers used to LOVE going on business trips with me – I could never drink my share. Of course, that was in the days when corporate travel was allowed and when people were allowed to admit they enjoyed a drink now and then. Good grief – I even knew people who – GASP – smoked!!!!

This story actually starts the night before last. I met someone new and stayed up WAY too late chatting. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was lovely, but I really do need more than 3 hours of sleep. I relied on a super-large iced coffee, turbo’d, to get me through the morning at the office. By lunch I felt like I’d been kicked in the head. I actually left the office by 3:30 (omg – and the building didn’t collapse without me in it!!! rofl). But of course I logged back in to work when I got home. The rest of my family was heading out to the movies. I poured myself a glass of chilled wine, sat back and dealt with emails and such. A coworker contacted me about business – we ended up testing code, installations, etc. Poured myself another glass of wine, expecting to get some dinner when we were done. Oops. Moved into SL and floated in my pool chatting with a friend. Sipping wine, floating, chilling. It was truly lovely. Said friend left. Okay – time for dinner! But first – I went to answer a plea for help at an MM board. *grin* How could you NOT want a Toblerone chocolate sword?????

eeewwwwwI tp’d to the board. Saw Dale logon just then so I tp’d Dale over for the sword too. *grin* Dale likes chocolate. As we stood there clicking the board – WHAM. That wine and the fatigue just came right up and slammed me. I truly could not see – my eyes simply teared, couldn’t think, and knew that I was way way past any coherent or reasonable behavior. I threw myself on Dale’s mercy. Explained that I was done-for. ๐Ÿ™‚ I needed rescuing. LOL. Dale actually had to remind me how to get back home. Once there – how to climb onto my bed. Which I seem to recall missing about 3 times before I got there. Oura had logged on in the meantime and said Hi. I said – I’m trashed, contact Dale. ๐Ÿ™‚ And that, dear readers, was my mistake.

tp blowing in the ceiling fan breezeDale and Oura. OH, how ye have BETRAYED me. /me lets tear run down my cheek. My property is protected. You must be in my group to rez objects on my land. Only MY FRIENDS are in that group. I logged in this morning to get my MM winnings. Which – by the way – I never got because I was so stunned when my house rezzed. THEY TRASHED MY ROOM!!!!!!!!!! OMG – they stole my bed, they left garbage piled up (with FLIES no less), they obscured my artwork, left empty bottles. I recoiled in shock and horror. eeeeewwwww It was so GROSS!!!!! I still can’t quite figure out what is under my bears. ๐Ÿ™‚ or the big white waving things (toilet paper streamers???) I’m SURE I did not have a ceiling fan. ๐Ÿ™‚ Is that from the pool table downstairs????

Hell – here’s a public apology to you. *grin* I saw your plurk yesterday about being bored and wanting to party and live it up. When I saw my room – I thought you and Nat had been there and done that. *grin* I guess you were too busy doing whatever to Prad’s floor. *hugs*

So dear reader – learn from my mistake. SL and alcohol don’t mix. Never trust your friends. Don’t give anyone rez rights.

Um, Dale, Oura – could one of you PLEASE give me back my bed??????

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. well, well, well. As I clean up the trash left in my room – I find a message in a bottle. Um, you didn’t SIGN the message!!! /me is really worried, trying to figure out who might this be………

    Had a WONDERFUL time last night. I sure didn’t know you could do “THAT” OMG Ahuva. How did you get so flexible?

    I will call you again, very soon :p PROMISE!!

    PS… DALE says he is sorry about the bed… but Oura managed to save it before the fire broke out – Dale says he will buy you a new bed spread.

    Ohhh, we didn’t know where to put the trash, where exactly is curb side pickup here? Thought it best not to throw it over the rail.

    pss.. Why DO you have an invisible door in the middle of your room? It makes it very confusing for drunk people.

    ok, kisses!

  2. I am sure when I got to the party, it was well under way – you were there weren’t you? I thought I saw you laying on the ‘infamous’ bed… well, passed out more than laying – LOL

    I go on record now as saying, It was all DALE’s fault!

    Did you know it takes hours to install a ceiling fan? Your property value went up I am sure…

    Uhhhh, I was out of the country???

    Ohhh, (Dale told me) that Frenis and the ducks wanted to come party as well, but then they were fighting with the bears over the Lingerie so we/he had to send them back to the beach. They were quite upset I hear. I think they trashed your pool.

  3. I had nothing to do with it! Well, I did make some waving-in-the-wind TP. As a favor to Oura, mind you! And it was me that sort of noticed that your bed was for sale (so to speak). But it was Oura what bought it!

    /me hides under things.

  4. /me throws a white hollowed out cylinder at Dale… ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d tp a friends house with you again anytime – LOL

  5. I was out of the country — Poland at this particular moment. But I never get invited to the parties where they trash your house anyway. It wasn’t me, for sure.

  6. Oh Baily, the bed was most definately returned. I know how much Ahuva loves that bed, that is why I wanted to hide it during the party, so it wouldn’t be damaged. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is a beautiful build. You did an awesome job. I love it btw
