It was the conversation Darrko started the other night that got me thinking about my friends, my Second Life friends. I have several close friends, but I also have about 80 people in my Calling Cards file. And there are many more people I know from my hosting and hanging out at other clubs or in other activities I’m involved in. Without friends, SL is just pixels. I like people and I love my friends, it’s who I am.
Yesterday, I went to Clover & Madsen’s SL wedding. I was very happy that they invited me because I’ve hung out with them at the Junkyard and they have visited The Line also. It was really a fun wedding with IronGut delivering the wedding ceremony with his own twist on SL matrimony. If I were ever to marry in SL, I think I’d like Iron to perform the ceremony. Hehe. But the singing, OMG.
After the wedding I headed over to The Line for my gig with Crighton. It was a good evening but rather light probably because of Darrko and Clover’s combined birthday party. Nonetheless, with Kimala and Blissie, we had the high probability of fun, and it was fun. In fact, as the party moved to the wild stage, Blissie rezzed a Hummer and drove into the crowd, killing one of our avie guests. Really, she killed poor Freckles. So, I instituted a new rule: no killing of guests.
It was a good day but I have been troubled more and more by the direction my second life is heading. It’s not a single thing, but more the cummulative effect of small frustrations, disappointments and failed purposes. And I’ve made many bad decisions in my second life. At times, I just want to delete Yordie Sands and start over as someone new.
