I FINALLY made it to Zindra. For breakfast, no less. *grin* Hey folks – remember – this blog is rated PG. Actually, I had to change my maturity setting to get to breakfast this morning. 🙂 I didn’t know that I even HAD a maturity setting. I guess that’s part of what happened when I installed the latest SL viewer this week. I got maturity. /me makes note of several people that need to download the new viewer. 🙂
I was hanging about this morning, drinking my coffee, trying to wake up, when a shout came through the Hey Girlfriends group chat. It was JoyD, wondering if anyone was there. I passed JoyD a cup of coffee and replied that when I finished MY coffee, I would know if I was there or not. JoyD IM’d back and invited me to see his diner. A diner?????? OMG. I live in the diner capital of the world!!!! And if you don’t know WHERE that is, well, sigh, you live a deprived existence. Of COURSE I wanted to see the diner. So JoyD sent the taxi. That’s when it happened: my maturity setting did not permit me to tp there. Did I wish to change my maturity setting. Darn straight. I really do NOT want to get into this, but…. personally… LL is doing this backwards. The people who want a controlled environment should be segregated, not those of us who do NOT want a controlled environment. (Yes, I believe STRONGLY that areas of controlled environment are ESSENTIAL.) Anyway…. digression over. I changed my setting, called for the taxi and found myself in Greasy Joe’s PitStop, which is JoyD’s diner.
I LOVE Greasy Joe’s. *grin* I may have found a new place to hang while I drink my morning coffee. Or maybe that place to go when we’ve been partying all night and don’t want the evening to end. There are milkshakes and burgers. You can raid the refrigerator. I had to share the experience. I tp’d Panacea in. SHE knows where the diner capital is and she appreciates a good diner. 🙂 Yeah, we swapped diner tales. The three of us sat there talking about diners and looking at diners for sale on xstreet, and moaning about prim restrictions that prevented the rezzing of a juke box and other fun items. The music stream there is great – sorry, it was hidden and I can’t tell you what it was. But it was wonderful – PERFECT diner tunes.
I had a great time talking with JoyD. Turns out that we have a lot of other interests in common – scripting, opensim, stuff like that. So of course we friended. When JoyD had to leave, Pan and I were still hanging about chatting. So I invited Natalya to join us for a real diner experience. (I’m fairly certain that Nat doesn’t know the TRUE diner capital of the world nor has she been there, but I love her anyway and maybe now she has a little taste for diners. *grin* ) I had to limit myself with photos here, but the whole set is up on my flickr account.
