Plurk Party

You know you are at an SL happening when you’ve been there for over 30 minutes and the people are all still gray. You know you are at a happening when the local chat is so full that it makes no sense because the comments appearing are in response to something that was said 20 lines above. You know you are at a happening when individuals keep crashing. So in that way, the local chat almost makes sense because a lot of it is “wb” and “ty” and “omg i crashed again”. You know you are at a happening when you finally the crash the sim itself.

Yesterday was the initial Plurk Party in SL of 2010. Okay – I admit this freely. I have no idea if there were Plurk parties in 2009. Or if there will be more Plurk parties in Sl in 2010. The party was held in Forever Young, in Serena Almeria. I believe we had 3 hosts, but I only remember the names of two: Di Hoorenbeek and Barbara Nicholls. 😦 Yes, I am very bad for not knowing all the hosts. Thank you all for setting up the party and providing a venue!

I’d heard the “talk” on Plurk about the party. I wasn’t sure I’d be home at that time. As it turned out, I was home about 2 hours after the party began. There were plurks all over about the party was great, come on down and plurkers not able to tp into the sim because it was full. I tried repeatedly for about 5 minutes and finally got in. There were 68 people in the club when I rezzed. Ouch. Gray people, natch. I’d been IM’ing with HellSpawneD. LOL – I could see him only a few meters away (well, I could see his name and gray shape) but I couldn’t WALK there, the lag and crowd were so horrific. So he tp’d me right to the middle of the dance floor, which is where I stayed until the sim crashed. According to the local chat, there had been as many as 87 folks in the sim at one time. 🙂 It’s been a long time since I’ve been in such a full sim and that was a live concert.

It was fun to see all the different names, hear everyone laughing. Rusch Raymaker was DJ’ing at the time. Oh my, that woman has the most gorgeous sexy voice. She could read the phone book and make it sound thrilling. I made 2 new Plurk friends – people who are friends of friends of mine and I see their names/plurks. I tp’d Chestnut in. That made a grand total of FOUR people who I knew out of that crowd. *grin* There are a LOT of plurkers in SL.

So the sim crashed and we slowly rezzed back in and partied on. 🙂 This time I pulled my draw rate way way down and since I was one of the first back, I actually saw something other than gray. 🙂 I have no idea how long the party lasted. After 90 minutes I needed some RL dinner. I tp’d home, logged and waited til it was time to come back inworld to hear Fricker Fraker’s music. Talk about polar opposites. That was last night’s music adventures.

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. There were plurk gatherings way back in the dark ages and there have been some others since. However, yesterday’s party was EPIC. I only wish I had been able to stay in the sim long enough to enjoy more of it. I crashed out over and over and finally just gave up.

    But thanks for the TP. I would have been too shy to go if you had not done that. 🙂

  2. @Rusch – /me sits riveted, listening to all the listings. *grin* do you have a subscribe-o-matic? I’d love to catch you DJ’ing inworld again.

    @Ches – I was so glad you came. LOL. All those fellow plurkers and I hardly knew a one. 🙂 Even an extrovert such as I gets shy.
