Well. This is my first "blog" since my return to Second Life. I can see the masses of people who regularly read my blog jumping around in glee. I can positively see it.
My main activities in-world are word-related now. I always enjoyed the odd event with Bookstacks before I left, but I've somewhat dedicated myself to it now. I find myself wanting more stuff organised, and run, without having to supply the ideas (The whole "Don't criticise if you don't know how to improve" thing is totally ridiculous - I point out other failings, I don't see it as my duty to fix them) and waiting for the ones that are available.
I actually won the Trivia last Saturday. It is often really hard, and it's simply a matter of who can google the fastest, so before now I hadn't actually taken part, refusing to google the answers myself. But, last Saturday, I thought I'd make up for all the times I didn't win because I didn't google. I think I got like.. 14 questions right out of 31, and there were at least five others there. I believe the closest score to me was 45. I was hoping to run off the top of the board, but sadly, I didn't. Got me 250 lindens, which was cool (although 5 had to go in the potty mouth jar).
I also made a few new friends, but one Special Friend. I shan't mention her name, like I have a certain other friend, because she's probably too shy. That's my reason and I'm standing by it.
Started building a teacup last weekend, to live in. It was large, but not large enough. Perhaps I will return to it when I can get some decent megaprims, and feel the urge to. Then, I started making a nuclear bomb. A fat boy. The intention was to drop it and it'd go "BHMMMM" and then it'd go white and then fiery and be very pretty and stuff. I built a nice shell, I got it to go "BHMMM", and even drop from a height and stop on impact, but the whole white flash (which is a very important piece) has bested me (for now), so I gave up on that also.
After that, I started making a vardo. I made very good ground on it, but it wasn't until I'd plotted everything out that I realised the vardo I was building didn't look too much like other vardos, and while uniqueness is something to be encouraged, it made my build a magnitude harder, so that has also been dropped, for now.
This shouldn't surprise any of my regulars. Throughout my S.L. life, I have completed one object, and that was with the help of another. But it did end up pretty nice, if I do say so myself.
Definitely need a building project to keep me occupied, although between reading a book (and two others) based in and around the Metaverse (That means Second Life) and my other books, and my "social" book events, and work, I don't know if I have the time! Being bored is very time-consuming.
So, open to any and all building ideas.
How are you?
