Fishies, Gypsies and Being a Dork

Saturday night I hosted my first of what I hope is many events at the Second Slice Cafe. I was nervous, I really didn't think anyone would show up. The discussion topic was "Rules of Relationships in Second Life." Overall, I think I had about 11 people show up, but we had a great time discussing all the different types of relationships you encounter on the grid.

The group was diverse, with a mixture of newbies and old timers, diehard singles and couples in long lasting SL relationships.

We had a blast.

I hope ya'll join us for the next discussion (okay, it's really just an excuse to sit around and chat, laugh and make some new friends, but we'll call it a "discussion.") I'm open to suggestions for topics, I'd like to keep it sort of light, no heavy duty politics or death penalty debates.

Seriously, there's enough of that in First Life.

I'll have to try different times, working around time zones for maximum exposure and scheduling around the busy hours at the baby business next door to help a little with the lag. That place is packed.. often.

In other news...

I've been using the Emerald viewer for the past couple of weeks. It's the first time I've ever used a viewer other than the "official" Linden Labs version. It's pretty effin' cool, with it's built in radar and extra Windlight settings. I can't imagine ever going back. If I ever get a new graphics card, I'll probably become an SL hermit, sitting in the corner of the Cafe constantly changing sky settings and periodically wiping the slow dripping drool from my chin.

Not that I'm a dork or anything.

Back at my little cabin, I've been adding a few touches of Gypsy flair, with photos, a guitar and even a crystal ball. Yesterday I noticed that about half of the little lot I lease is water, so I've been looking for some low prim, fishie and/or water fowl.. maybe a fish emitter? If ya'll have any suggestions, let me know in the comments or drop me a message on Plurk. Oh yeah and.. I'm kinda broke so it has to be cheap.

That's all for this week's slice. I'll see ya'll on the grid.

Sounds like it was fun, would have liked to have been there. Hit me up inworld and let me know when you have another :)

Unfortunately due to my crap internet, my inworld time is limited, but interesting discussions take priority, and as long as local isn't lagged too badly, I am *in*!

Next time, there will be a little more warning. It was sort of a last minute decision and I didn't get the word out like I needed to. I look forward to seeing you at the next one!
