Rockin’ Away

Well, we did it. We made the RL deadline. Handed over the video to the client. Many, many thanks to a wonderful team and folk who worked day and night and weekends to get their part done. You are the best partners a gal could want. And one day, I will actually post some of that video here. I hope. *grin*

But something had to give in that push and unfortunately that something was my health. I sort of hit the wall and went splat once the footage was recorded. So I have been in recuperation mode. I’m on vacation and I’m actually sticking to that – resolutely ignoring emails from work, not looking at the many feeds. I sleep, I do nothing, I read and then do more nothing. In sl – I’ve retreated to my playhouse. I go to live music, chat and do a lot of nothing here, too. *grin* Oh wait – that’s what I ALWAYS do.

Oura, however, decided that my spirits needed a boost. So she got me a new toy for my playhouse. Oh, anyone could have a rocking horse. *I* have a rocking giraffe. I rezzed him out today. His name is Jasper. Why Jasper? Because one of my absolute favorite books as a child was Jasper Giraffe. In it, poor Jasper falls down and hurts his knee. Polly Parrot flies through the forest telling everyone and the presents and get-well cards stream to Jasper. *grin* I loved it. I could read it endlessly. Make my mother read it to me endlessly. So Jasper has taken up residence in my playhouse.

Calli is always inviting me to do fun things with her (and then she crashes when I get there). I have 2 not-yet-written-posts about cool things Calli found. So I was very happy to invite Calli to join me and try Jasper on his initial run. She was dressed perfectly – they matched! Then we sat and shmoozed til she had to work and I had to nap. A lovely morning.

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!

One thought on “Rockin’ Away”

  1. It was a lovely break 🙂 Reading this reminded me that the ability to ‘come see this!’ instantly is one of the great benefits of SL. No need to pick up the phone, change out of the sweats, brush hair, drive across town – “Come see this!” *whoosh* and there you are.

    We should all do more of that 🙂
