One of my all-time favorite musicals is “Once Upon a Mattress“. Carol Burnett played Princess Winifred and her rendering of “Happily Ever After” was fantastic. I played that album over and over and over and over and learned every breath she took when she sang. Her plaintive cry of “And besides, I don’t wanna get out! I wanna get in!” spoke volumes to my soul. Here I am again, crying: I wanna get IN!!! Plurk has locked me out of my account, insisting that my password is incorrect. Plurk appears to have no rescue plan in place for people who have forgotten passwords (which I did NOT, by the way, as I had changed it and written it down recently). I have sent 3 emails and received no response. So big hiss and a boo to YOU, Plurk. That’s customer support?????
As I was trying in vain to get INto my Plurk account, I saw a twitter from one of my favorite celebrities – The Bronx Zoo’s Cobra. You may remember last year when the cobra decided that SHE wanted OUT. There was quite a stir until she was returned to her cage and renamed Mia. Mia has retained her wonderful sense of humor and is now writing for Paw Nation‘s animal site. Mia has a great article on the value of names. As I read that Twitter is (perhaps) purging RPer’s from its ranks, we may be in for another round of reminders about the beneficial aspects of pseudonyms.
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!

Um…Doesn’t your picture show a link that says “Forgot password?”
Perhaps you should give that a try 🙂
@Brian – pfffft. i did NOT forget my password. I put in the “new” pswrd. it rejected it. so i tried the old pswrd. rejected it. tried permutations. sigh. you and i had more luck yesterday.
