I’m SCRIPTING!!!!! Yes I am, indeedy. 🙂 I have a DOORBELL!!! And I had a major breakthrough in understanding scripting grammar/syntax. At least, I think I did. We will find out today when I tackle the NEXT assignment.
Okay – so if you come to visit me, use the doorbell. LOL. Thanks to Chestnut who tested it for me!!! Many thanks to Dale who explained that events get their own braces. (hey – that makes sense to ME and that’s what counts.) And of course, thanks to Hell, who came up with the assignment in the first place and was so patient when I hit the wall after 9 hours of scripting on Friday. The doorbell worked, the timer worked, but they didn’t work together. I think that maybe, just maybe, 9 hours straight was overdoing it. My brain was completely fried. I know that I went inworld and did something – but I don’t remember what. I really hope that I won’t find out when I open an envelope full of photos. But in any case – I have a doorbell. Please don’t abuse it.
Ahuva: try it again and this time try to ring it repeatedly
Doorbell: Hello Chestnut Rau
Ahuva Heliosense knows you are here
Doorbell: You have a visitor: Chestnut Rau
Doorbell: Ahuva Heliosense has already been notified, be patient and stop ringing the bell!
Today – my intruder alert. 🙂
So since in RL I get to go out and party (which I did last night, some good live music with friends) I figured I could do the same inworld as well. So I stopped scripting long enough to drop by the Snowflake Rave at Shengri La. I wasn’t there very long, so I can’t tell you all the gossip. 🙂 And when I came back after my RL excursion, um, I was there, but not really up to focusing very well on details. But at least this time I do remember that I had fun last night. 🙂 The scene for the rave was beautiful. I think this is my favorite of all the raves I’ve attended there. We were supposed to dress frosty/snowy/flakey. I knew that I had the flakey part down – my brain was still quite fried after all the scripting, even though things were now working. I had a beautiful white dress, but didn’t feel like being formal. So I found a pair of white jeans and a white top. No white boots and no time to shop, so I used a pair of white sandals. Probably should have changed hair color for the event, but that kind of nuance was quite beyond me at that point. Chestnut and Shenlei looked great, as usual. Both had wonderful white outfits. Harper was extremely cool, but I couldn’t get a good picture – lots of flowing white material, and I was pressed for time. You can always find me and Rez in any picture – just look for long flowing blonde hair. (Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair, Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen!).
Since I seem to be so distracted lately (gee, what AM I doing with my time???) let me remind you now about the Ode butterfly hunt on Dec 17 at Shengri La. This really is a wonderful event. It’s like eating potato chips – you think you can resist chasing those darned little butterflies, but then one flies by and you just HAVE to touch it. Wham. You are hooked. 🙂 It’s fun. Bring the newbies – it is wonderful practice for moving and touching and using inventory and all the rest. Not to mention all the cool jewelry.
