Well, this evening I learned that I’ve somehow gained three sisters-in-law and a mother-in-law. Princess never told me that she was Mykyl’s and Minerva’s and Hestia’s sister, and that Dulcinea was her mom. Kind of big details to omit. Not that I have a problem with it, but one does like to know who one’s family is, doesn’t one?
Well, it’s kinda nice to have family. I wonder if Alpha and Aianna and FD are cousins? I don’t know that I have a mother or father, or any brothers or sisters of my own. Second Life is like that. You don’t know who your family is until you meet them for the first time, sometimes.
I spent the day attending to details, mostly. I worked on a three colored spotlight for our holiday island. I reduced the price of the ship’s wheel from L$95 to L$60, as I haven’t sold a single copy as of yet. On the other hand, my L$20 towel dispenser has already sold one copy, and I just put it on the market yesterday.
I haven’t been Everwind-ing very much lately, which is a bad thing. I get great personal satisfaction out of being the Speaker for Castan. It is something that allows me to come into touch with myself, and to help others, and to get my own values centered. Plus I get to walk around in cool cloaks and stuff. There is much that comes along that makes me think about things. That’s the secret behind role-play. It is not the fact that you are talking to a dragon that is important. It is the fact that you are talking to a different conscious entity, learning his or her ways, adjusting to his or her values, learning to duck from his or her flames when he or she belches. It’s about learning and cooperation and problem solving. Sometimes, its about failing, and learning to move on.
Well, I don’t want to stay up too lat tonight. The Princess’s animator got mad at me ’cause I fell asleep with the laptop screen shining in her face, and I wouldn’t wake up to turn it off. Don’t want to repeat that.
So, goodnight, my family and friends. I’ll see many of you in the ‘morrow.
