Gondola Ride

I had a wonderful time on Second Life last night. The night ended with a romantic gondola ride down a canal at midnight with lights and flowering trees all around. I won't be able to do Second Life again until the middle of next week and I'm missing it already.
I wish I knew how to link you all to the best places I've seen on SL. Surely there is a way to do it, but I don't see how to copy the URL.

Second Life Log In Issues

I thought I'd lost 3 of my ALTS because the region I visited last kept freezing up and booting me. I got back in using the directions on this page:

About those Last Names

There are two SL last names I've seen in the game but not on the list so I got curious about it. They are Valentine and Archer. I am guessing they are retired because they got used up.
Ever wonder how many people have the same SL last name as you? Here is a site that tracks that as well as other things regarding last names on Second Life.

Rotten People

Last night I experienced a nasty bit of cyber bullying on Second Life that kind of put the kibosh on the whole thing for me. I kind of dread going onto there now. I hope I recover but at this point I just don't know. I suddenly got ejected from a group of people I thought were my friends without an rational explanation and just a few snarky IMs after I asked them if they had hit the wrong button by mistake.

Don't get me wrong. My experiences on SL were 99% good. Hopefully I'll recover from the few bad apples.

Linden dollars

Every day on 2nd Life is an adventure. Today I got trained to do security in one of the dance clubs and made $L160 in tips. Go me.

More Photos

I've landed 2 new jobs on SL. So the money is rolling in. Here are some more photos of my misadventures.

My goal is to play the game without putting any of my own money into it, and so far so good.

Wandering around the SL landscape I happen upon the neatest stuff. I think it's the most fun as a couple.


Today I learned how to make chatroom gestures thanks to some tutorials on That is a lot of fun and gives my writing muscles some practice. Now if I could just make some .wav files they can have sound too. Someone reccommended Audacity so I'm going to look for that tomorrow.

Gypsy Wagon

Yes, boys and girls it's almost 4 AM and I just turned off 2nd life. I can't keep going like this. But the good news is I found the house I want to buy. Actually it's a gypsy wagon and I'm looking for some pagan friendly lands to put it on, and maybe put a treehouse next to it. I want a foresty place, but unfortunately some pagan friendly lands are filled with ugly skull castles and psychedelic floating balls. I just want a forest, some meadows and nothing with gaudy flashing lights. And now I'm going to bed to dream about my gypsy wagon.
