Gingerbread Men

Bill Amend's FoxTrot -
This has absolutely nothing to do with SL. Not at all. But I don’t seem to be able to share links anymore on Plurk and I don’t know why. So I’m using my blog instead. This comic strip made me laugh out loud for real this morning – a good, loud, laugh. Not a snicker or a grin, but laughing.

He inspired me to make gingerbread men. My son helped. Yeah, I’m a geek. Most of the time I’m a geek-wannabee. But today I rate as unqualified Geek. *grin*

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. Cool! I’m hoping to make some gingerbread cookies today with D. Nothing geekish, I’m afraid. Unless you count that we got the cookie cutters from IKEA. There’s a moose, a hedgehog, a squirrel…

  2. O, this was priceless. thank you for sharing this, it definitely made me smile.

    My best Star Trek story is from the time I was working at the University of Chicago on the Sloan Digital Sky Survey project – 600 scientists, all of them more or less star geeks. My boss at the time was a major Trek fan (well, they may all have been, but my job description did not include querying all 600 to find out).

    I coerc…er…encouraged one of our grad students to make a special Star Trek insignia pin in our optical instrumentation lab. I painted it with nail polish and we came up with an appropriate SDSS logo to put on it.

    On the final day of classes, I waited for Don to show up at his biggest lecture class. Of course, when he saw me he assumed something was wrong, but then I presented him with his very own geek pin. He laughed so hard, and that is still a very fond memory of making an uber star geek/astronomer happy. šŸ™‚

    Cookies would have been ok, too, but I wanted something a bit more lasting!
